    These websites are good for getting traffic, but the traffic does not always convert.

    Hi Happygal,

    They are great for building back links, which if done over time can help your ranking.
    I use Social Poster, the free version.
    Only do 4-5 at a time or you will seem spammy.

    First you will need to create a simple user name and password for each service.

    I used the same info for every one..which will help if I ever need to log in to every one of them again.


    You can also use Only Wire.

    I hope this helps, Victoria

    I use all of them(well most of the major ones), in fact I started a social bookmark exchange which has worked out pretty well so far [​IMG]

    Loomis, what about socialmarker do you like? I am not familiar with it, so I'd love to know more.

    Use Attraction Marketing techniques when using these tools.

    Social networks are great because you can fill in as much detail into them as you want to.

    Let people get to know the kind of person you are, build a relationship with others on those networks.


    In response to pcwork's post, not everyone will convert. Which is sometimes a good thing!

    The reason you may not convert traffic is because you probably don't have enough good CONTENT on that profile. Or are not building relationships. Or both.

    Or just simply because people are not interested at the moment.

    Keep networking and keep building relationships and you will see conversion over time.

    Its easy and quick to use, and I believe the fastest way to get your articles out there to many sites about you website, and creating back links. Highly suggest it

    Hello

    I have tried Social networking at squidoo and I have say i posted a terrible lense, can anyone suggest another social site and some tips on how to get the most out of it.

    To Ntc i am fairly new to online marketing and could you explain a little bit about back links, i understand what links are to your website but not back links or are they the same thing.

    thanks

    Try onlywire or social marker.com.

    It is a good way to get visitors and backlink for your website/blog.

    Yes I agree - that is the problem - turning the ideas into hard cash!
