The Top 5 Web Marketing Techniques

Internet marketing forms such an integral part of any internet business, so I thought I should list some of what I consider to be the top internet marketing techniques, and the ones I incorporate in my own internet business ventures.

1 – Article Marketing

Article marketing has many advantages. A well written article which is accepted and published on the major article websites has the potential to get hundreds of page views. You can get many backlinks to your site. As a writer, that increases your, and readers are more likely to read your future articles. Keep the length of articles to within 400 and 600 words. Select and submit your article to relevant category. Your article will be reviewed, and if accepted, published. Submission can be done manually, and there’re numerous submission software that can submit your articles to dozens of directories. Some recommended submission sites are: Ezinearticles.com and Articlebase.com.

2 – Video Marketing

Video marketing is now an important tool for reaching vast audiences because most people would rather watch a video than read an article. Creating a video need not be very tasking if you’re reticent about sitting in front of a camera. Tools such as Windows Movie Maker and Camtasia’s Animoto can enable you to create a good and effective video with slides and sound effects. Upload your videos to video sharing websites, remembering to optimise it for search engines, by including your keywords in your title and description.

3 – Affiliate Marketing

Article marketing is the practice in which an affiliate promotes a product on behalf of the merchant. Popular affiliate programmes include Amazon aStore and Clickbank. From an affiliate’s standpoint, affiliate programmes are an excellent way of generating income. You simply join a programme, choose a product and start promoting it using the link provided by the network. Your link will contain an ID which is used to track your sales. You’re paid a commission on each sale, and I believe Clickbank pays perhaps the highest rate of commission, up to 75% on many products. You can find additional information on Clickbank affiliation on my blog: blogs Design.

4 – Social Media Marketing

Social media marketing utilises the powers of Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious and LinkedIn, whereby friends and followers share information. YouTube is another powerful tool that you can use to promote your product. One advantage is that when large number of people access your product and find it useful, you become accepted as an expert in your niche. Incidentally, StumbleUpon is growing rapidly, and you can get a large number traffic from it. A word of caution is the bounce back rate from StumbleUpon traffic can be high.

5 – Forum Marketing

Forum marketing can be extremely profitable if it’s utilised correctly. It fundamentally involves signing up to forums and making contributions to discussions. Users tend to be highly knowledgeable in specific topics, and if you’re accepted as an expert in your field, the rewards can be extraordinary – users feel comfortable enough to purchase your products, and consequently your ROI increases. Some of the popular forums to which you can subscribe are Warriorforum.com, Clickbanksuccessforum.com and Webring.com. As you complete the various fields when posting on forums, it’s advisable to optimise your information for your main keywords.

    I think forum marketing is slowly phasing out~

    1. Intercom says:

      @fas I think forum marketing can be a successful tool, but it takes time to establish yourself as a credible member of a community – before you start to see any significant benefits.

      @fas I agree with you, forum promotion is not worth as social media capture the market. The best way to promote your business is through social media. Goo2o technologies pvt. ltd. is using facebook to promote there goo2o online store and this is the best practice they are applying view there knowledgebase article to know more

    Forum marketing it definitely not phasing out. Places like digital point and warrior forum have thousands of active people participating every single day. It is just more competitive now, so you need to make sure you stand out from the crowd. Again, this isn’t the only way to market online, but is a small piece of the puzzle!

    Hi Pope!

    Thanks for sharing these strategies. For me, blogging and social media marketing are my best strategies.

    The key is to find what resonates with you and what brings the best results. It’s all about learning one strategy at a time, so you don’t get overwhelmed.

    All the best,

    Mavis

    Nice post! Thanks

    Can I take posts of this webpage to my site? 🙂

    1. Intercom says:

      That’s perfectly alright.

  10. i love stumble upon feature because one of my blog ad a lot of traffic from stumble upon… my question is, is there any automated tools for stumble upon?? make it easier for us

    1. Pope-Moore says:

      @Cameron Highland Apartment Tips One recommendation I can make is using su.pr. It’s more of an extension of StumbleUpon I believe. It vastly improves the experience of stumbling; it makes it easier to post reviews and it automatically shortens any url you include in your review. If you haven’t already done so, you might want to investigate that.

      Cheers,

      Pope

  11. All good techniques, diversify them and you’ll be set.
