Now before I get into how you can make this work for your business, I really want to dispel some misconceptions about Web 2.0 and how the so-called leaders are using it.
First Things First
There are no leaders in Web 2.0 advertising because it is something that we have been using for a number of years to get visitors to our websites.
For example: We have been using blogs, social marketing, article writing, press releases and bookmarking for a number of years. The only thing that is different about how it is being done now is “how it is being applied to raise the rank of a particular website on the internet search engines.
Here is a simplified approach to using Web 2.0 and how you can start receiving no cost traffic visiting your company website immediately. SO LET’S BEGIN.
Step 1: Make a blog. Blogs are free to use and they most definitely receive high search engine ranking on all of the major search engines.
When making a blog, I recommend adding 1 post a week on your blog to keep it current. (It would be even more beneficial to have 2 blogs, both with a slightly different advertising campaign on them.
Step 2: Set up a social bookmark site on Squidoo, Facebook, and MySpace. The number of people that visit each of the sites above per day is astronomical. (You can find these sites by simple typing in their name on Google for example).
Step 3: Open an account at 4 of the free movie sites. I recommend using YouTube, Daily Motion, AOL video and Metcafe. All of these receive very high traffic ratings.
The process THAT you need to follow.
With your 2 BLOGS, ensure that you post a new entry or 2 on each of these every week.
NOW, update your MySpace, Facebook, and Squidoo sites by putting in the domain name of your BLOGS above. (And vice versa, you will put your MySpace, Facebook and Squidoo domain name on your Blogs as well).
Next, make 2 to 3 movies each week that promote your product on the above mentioned movie sites. BE sure to put all of your movie urls on your blogs as well as your social networking sites.
The idea behind doing this is to let the search engines spiders start see the links to your sites which are now creating back links to all of your sites. This creates a higher search engine ranking.
The methodology is simple. Repeat the above process a every week, and you will begin to see a lot more traffic visiting your site.
I did not mention yet about Article writing and Press Releases. These methods are both free and they work well by creating back links to all of your websites,blogs and social networking sites.
Create and submit 2 articles per week and submit 2 free press released per week.
Does this work? The answer is yes. I have used this simplified approach for the last 7 months and I do not pay for advertising anymore.
