Marketing In 2011: What We Learned
Use Social Media
Social media is now a critical factor in how affiliates market their business. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube—and social bookmarking sites such as Digg, Reddit and StumbleUpon—all should be used daily. Post your subscription info, promo videos, podcasts, webinars—anything potential users will be interested in and current users can share.
But remember—these are social media sites. Don’t just self-promote your site and services, but take the time to engage in discussions and develop relationships.
