    Well, this probably isn't new, but I'm sure a hell of a lot of you wouldn't of have heard of this before! What it is meant to do, is establish yourself as a professional and a mentor, while at the same time create interest in your product and yourself leading to a potential sale. I personally learnt about this technique when someone did it to me. What you do is you find a website, one that is in your particular niche, for example, my website being predominantly focused on marketing online, and then you critique or criticise it and tell them how to make it better/more attractive/more effective.

    The guy who did it to me, although he wasn't very good at it, it actually made me follow through and click his link which is often one of the hardest things to get done. The reason why his was so ineffective is because he had obviously not looked at my website, and just copy pasted some generic information off Google, but if you actually give valuable information directly, that can really make a difference and could lead to a long term customer.

    Obviously it will be hard the first couple of times to get the hang of it, but the extra 5 minutes spent doing this could lead to a lot more money made in the future and some valuable training as well!

    This might be an effective technique, but it might not be - sounds kind of like relationship building. If you link back to your website when you do this, you have to be careful, and the reason is that some domain companies see this as spamming someone, and they will yank your domain if you do this...and charge you a $150 to $200 fee to get it back.

    Essentially if you're talking about reading information from a blog or website about a niche, say IT, Design, Dog Care, etc and had a link to an MLM company of some kind, then the guy is performing Viral Marketing.

    Always best to try and write your own content when viral marketing, provide a service for free so members join and send invites or create some software people can spread around for free.

    The effective way or advertising or producing brand exposure through social networks. The technique spreads throughout the network rapidly by word of mouth or by Internet resources like e-mail, blogs or other services. Like a virus, it replicates and spreads quickly. The cost of such a campaign is relatively low compared to the high rate of exposure to the target audience.

    Being an expert on your niche works great in some forums and group discussions. You can alwyas build relationships and trust among other members but be careful on the sites that you are linking to. You should be informative enough to get respected.

    Hi there Jean,

    Yes i agree, if you are not being informative to others and they do not find what you are posting interesting than there is no point in posting it. it isnt doing you any good. Building a repore with people is where success is created along with giving them useful tips and advice. By the way good luck with getting article writers[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hi Steven,

    I think you have a good idea there.

    You could apply your idea to "Blogs" in your niche. Do the same thing Remote comment on one of their Posts, but instead of the "make more attractive" approach you would stay on the "niche" topic make your own post and edify the Post on the other Blog through "yours" - Remote comment.

    The other Blogger will have to accept your comment. But if you approach it softly softly it should work for you.

    Make sense?



    Regards

    I do agree this would be effective, but is it worth spending time on if you don't get results. Honestly I would want to spend more time writing articles or blogging. IMO.

    To your freedom and success,

    Joel
