The idea is to make money quickly and not have to wait for Google to get around to indexing and ranking our sites. I’ll do this by using the social media sites along with the search engines.
Let’s start with Google Groups. (http://groups.google.com/)
Best way to start is by doing a search for the groups in your niche and start joining the ones you like. Some of the groups are set to private but all you have to do is join, just about all of them will approve you. I’d also look for the smaller groups so your post doesn’t get buried the second you post them.
And let’s not forget that Google, Yahoo, MSN and Facebook all have groups. The purpose of these groups is to join them, participate in them and have positive interactions with other members. At no time would I try and promote or sale my own product. What I would do is start meeting people and have a couple hundred friends that are interested in me starting my own group and then I’d start my own group.
Another great source of traffic and sales is forums. Before I learned all the different ways to make money online I use to make my total living with forums. Forums are packed full of great information and some of them even have millions of visitors.
With forum marketing all you have to do is participate in a positive manner, don’t spam, include a link in your signature and post good information. Some forums have millions of members and many of those members visit the forum daily. The idea is to start posting, meeting people and making friends and then turning those friends into paying clients. Once you find a forum that you are making money with should contact that forum owner and see about paying to have a banner ad put on his site for your business.
Below are a list of forums that I will join for my business.
