    Hello everyone, I am using free methods to promote products. Right now I am focused on about 3 products at this point and would like to use all the free techniques I learned and apply them for each product. I just don't want to sound redundant but then again maybe it doesn't matter. I will make 1 blog at blogger 1 blog at wordpress, a lens, and about 10+ articles. I will do this for each product I promote. I'm just afraid that I will sound too redundant especially with the 2 blogs and lens. I have created links to go to my website and to the other blogs/lens. But one of the blogs I don't create any backlinks because at that point I think It will just be saying the same information over again and I don't want to take visitors to another blog/lens where they are just getting the same information. But the other sites link back to one another but the one blog just links to the review site and product site. But then again visitor tend to skim over a lot of things so maybe it doesn't matter too much. The 1 blog and lens that link back to each other are fine but I don't want to link the other blog to those ones. Now I'm probably repeating myself I apologize for that haha.

    Any input about how i'm doing this will be greatly appreciated. I will probably post this to other forums as well just to get more feedback.

    Thank you everyone,

    Sounds good to me - here is a tip, if you find you are doing well with a product, try making more lenses on different aspects of the product,.... and linking all your lenses together as well..[​IMG]

    mountainmom5: try making more lenses on different aspects of the product
    Hi Matt: What M5 suggests would either resolve or reduce the redundancy issue you've raised.

    If you intend to approach it as you say then that would be a good solution candidate - especially if you kept your lenses fairly brief and to the point.

    Thank you very much for the feedback. I just started my online business so I'm not seeing any profits yet so its hard to say if a product that I promoting is decent. I'm not saying that it's bad if it doesn't sell. It definitely is an awesome product (its actually a course) and I'm a member if it. I mean there also might be too much competition as well. But I guess i'm just going to have to wait and see. It's good practice though just to implement what I'm learning in the course I'm taking which is actually the product that I'm promoting.[​IMG]

    Once again thank you for your input and good luck to you

    Blogs seem to be a good avenue for traffic along with forum posting. I also have free listings with ebay & also use you tube to promote my website. Some things you just have to pay for, but alot of good things for your business are free [​IMG]

    You got me kind of confused there, (does not take much) but I think what mm5 said makes sense. Here is an example of what I do, I have a large niche that can be broken down into a lot of smaller ones. I have a blog that pretty much has it all there, and now I have 10 lens out there that break it down into smaller niches, each with different products, but I always link the lens to the blog and the lens to one another and sometimes I link the posts in the blog to a lens. Not sure if that is a good idea, but money comes in, so its working.

    As for me I found different websites to promote for each of my products. First of all I did researches.
    For instance: if you pick to promote product A about fishing and product B about tattoos, you won't be promoting both products in the same places, right? In this case you would need to ask yourself "where I could find many people who like fishing?", "what websites are popular among tattoo fanatics?".
    Some of places which are suitable for promoting most of products:
    Google Adwords, Yahoo Marketing, ezinearticles, etc.
    Finally I want to add that software for creating and mantaining electronic catalogs will be useful for people who own internet shops. For example, Product Catalog Builder.

    I think what you are doing might help with page rank, but as you are saying, it might get kind of redundant. Instead, you might want to use article directories and other high PR sites to link to your blogs, and from your blogs, link to either an affiliate product or a review page where you rank several different affiliate products against each other.

    This thread just brought something to my mind. Writing blogs on how lenses works for newbies would be a great thing.

    just 1 tips.. if you are promoting a product as an affiliate you should check their affiliate site. Some merchant provide affiliate tool for their affiliate like landing page template, articles, banner or some free ebook to build their affiliate list.. [​IMG]
