In my previous entry I told you about a short ebook I’d written that I had put around some document repositories and to go hand in hand with this I had put out a Twitter blast through a Fiverr gig to publicise it, as well as pushing each repository deposit to Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ if the site had the facility built in.
I’ve not had the report back from the Fiverr gig but I have seen a sharp increase in the number of follows my Twitter account has and so have spent some time following back – a necessary evil at the early marketer stage. I’ll count that as a positive sign and as such have done another couple of pushes of the ebook on my Twitter account – Online Marketing Man – @ using my Google Drive as a public document store. Apparently Google likes this sort of thing, so I will place other documents there too.
On my AyMayZin blog site I’ve also done a write up for Rent-A-List who I see a a great half way house between the high cost of solo ads and the low quality of safelists. I haven’t actually used them yet, so I guess I’m taking some of it on trust, but they have a good reputation and look to offer a wide range of email and traffic related services. Link to the actual article – HERE.
I’ve also publicised the article to Twitter and written an article for the article on IBOToolbox. Now in case you didn’t know, IBOToolbox is a social site for internet marketers (mostly) and it claims to be regularly indexed by search engines so that articles (they call the press releases) and Wall remarks (rather like Twitter) can be searched and found by non-members although they cannot reply until they sign up (of course). IBOToolbox also has it’s own video site and is adding extras all the time. It’s very social and it’s free to join.
One other place I’ve advertised the AyMayZin article is through a Herculist safelist blast. I’m a member and so can do an email to around 86,000 other members although on past experience I know the open rate on safelists is very low and I think I’d be lucky to see 80 viewers from that source.
Right then. That pretty much sums up today’s marketing activities. There’ll be more to follow very soon. Please keep up with me by putting your details in on the right hand side. You won’t get overly spammed by me and it’s more likely to be marketing information as opposed to sales pitches.
Thanks for reading.
