Social Marketing Strategies

Social marketing, which involves both interacting and engaging with your target audience, as well as setting up individual webpages on communities including Squidoo and HubPages.com

Squidoo is an exceptionally popular service that allows users to create one-page websites referred to as ‘lenses’.

With Squidoo being an authority website with search engines like Google, each time you build a lens, you are able to rank for specific keywords used within your page’s title and content itself. It’s a very effective strategy for generating back links and generating traffic to your website.

Squidoo also offers additional modules that you can integrate into your lens pages, including the option to incorporate an opt-in form into your page, so that you can begin to develop an email list of prospects.

You can also earn money from within the Squidoo community based on affiliate commissions generated from the different modules and add-ons that you inject into your lense pages, including Amazon modules, and Adsense.

Another similar service that allows you to develop one-page websites that rank heavily within the search engines is available at www.hubpages.com

With Hub Pages, you can also earn revenue from different add ons that you decide to implement, but are also able to add tags to your hub pages for better ranking within the search engine.

With Hub Pages, there are a few restrictions in place that you need to pay attention to, including:

>>> You are only permitted to feature two external (outgoing) links on each hub that you create.

>>> Your content must be unique, (no PLR is permitted).

>>> You are not permitted to use excessive tags.
s long as you focus on developing high quality hub pages, you can benefit from the popularity of the Hub community, as well as the back links from each hub page that you create.

Make sure when you create external pages on websites like Hub Pages or Squidoo that you interlink your pages to your main website’s URL.

By cross linking from feeder sites to your main landing page, you will be able to develop a solid back link campaign, quickly and at absolutely no cost. This is also a very effective method of ensuring your website is indexed by the major search engines, VERY quickly!

There are other free methods of building back links and maximizing your exposure online, including by developing a quick blog on www.wordpress.org and www.blogger.com

Both of these services also carry weight within the search engines, which means that you will be able to increase your outreach just by spending a few minutes developing a single page website that showcases your main website, or your products and services.

Blogger is a great place to make feeder sites. It’s a free blogging platform run by Google, and pages there can often rank very well in many search engines.

Pages on Blogger aren’t given special ranking privileges by Google simply because they run the site.

But like Squidoo, HubPages, and other similar sites, they have enough pages with backlinks and authority that the overall site seems to get a nice boost.

If you’re going to make a blog to promote your membership site, there are two ways to go about it.

You could either set up a little throwaway blog that you only post a few articles on, linking to your site in each article, or you could try to create an authority blog.

An authority blog is one that you post to fairly regularly, work towards getting a lot of regular viewers, and try to get “authority” status in the search engines.

If you want to create an authority blog, it will be a lot more effective. Your readers will come to respect you as a real expert in your field, so they will be more inclined to join your membership site.

It’s a great way to get members, just keep in mind that running an authority blog requires a substantial commitment. You have to post regularly, or it won’t be very effective.

As with other feeder sites, you’ll want to use your keyword you can. If you can get your keyword in the URL, it’s a very good idea to do so.

If you just want to create quick throwaway blogs for fast search engine traffic, you don’t necessarily have to use unique content.

To the best of my knowledge, Blogger doesn’t have any requirements that say you can’t use PLR, so this is a good way to build feeder sites quickly.

If you want to become an authority blog, I wouldn’t use PLR. Unique content is a much better idea, even though it takes more time.

By cross linking from remotely hosted pages to your own main site, you will be able to develop a solid back link campaign, quickly and at absolutely no cost. This is also a very effective method of ensuring your website is indexed.
