Comment marketing is a thing some folk try to employ as a promotional strategy. First off is this. You should not be comment marketing. The term is rather misleading and I really don’t know if there is legitimately a term, as such.
The purpose of commenting should be and is for adding value to a discussion and not for spamming. This is where newbies make their blunder. The fact that readers will see your signature or link is a co-incidence. An alert Web site Moderator will not allow links in comments, unless it’s relevant to the topic.
Frankly I omit comments with irrelevant links on all of my sites, when I see them, for this reason. The purpose of whatever article is to inform readers about what ever chosen topic. Having a irrelevant link merely ads to all the confusion that’s already on the web. Suppose you were on a date, for the first time and went to an ice cream store for ice cream and some guy comes up to you and blatantly tries to sell you underwear they do that sadly in New York but never the less? Adding a link or spamming on a blog, forum or where has ever been the same thing.
What’s spam? For those of you who don’t know or fully understand, it’s actually putting things in front of people in their space, without their permission. To give you a better understanding I’ll give you an example on this site. Virtually every day someone pastes the same comment with their link to some retail clothes store. It’s ridiculous. I’m talking about YouTube and the internet and a dummy will post a statement about a pill prescription, out of nowhere. I merely delete it upon seeing it. The spammer wastes time trying to advertise irrelevant issues.
Promotional Strategy Should Be Relevant
A more intelligent course of action is to surf around and try to find a topic that you have knowledge of and make a comment. You will eventually grow in popularity over time. Your comments must be relevant and helpful. If you advertise immediately, then by all means find media pertaining to what you have. I strongly suggest starting your own blog, where you can blatantly advertise your stuff, the way you want to.
If you’re a relevant writer, You can make a little money carefully placing comments. There are companies that will pay you to make comments on the internet. You need to register. They ask the typical things, like your name and email address. It’s good to create a profile, just as you would on any social media site. You can upload your picture or little picture. The profile is suggested, however usually not compulsory. They’ll ask you to go to a particular forum and make at least 10 comments. After you make the post they’ll analyze your comment content. The first want to make sure you are writing intelligent comments, before they give you their commissioned job. In roughly 24 hrs you’ll get an email saying whether they accept or reject your comments. It’s really very simple.If you don’t understand how to make an intelligent comment and want to work as a comment writer. Do a Google search on the topic and learn.
Everyone wants to know how to get more traffic. The answer is more than one thing. There is no one answer aside from being consistent and relevant. I’m talking about organic targeted traffic, because that’s the best for a decent profit. You can always purchase traffic, but your profit is usually lost at the cost of the traffic. Then what do you do about competition? There’s an answer for all of that. Do you think I’m going to tell you everything here. You’re in for a mistake. I’ve just hinted on issues here, so that you’ll understand more about traffic generation and of course investigate more
Should you purchase ads on lists. Well, sometimes that actually works. I used to do that back in 1995, but after a while you’ll see the limitations. There is only a certain amount of qualified lists out there. Buying ad space is risky business. You always stand a chance of losing your face. Upon buying ad space on someone’s list, the room for advancement is limited. Yes every once in a while you can probably find a list that allows what you sell and you can profit, however it isn’t consistent. The solution to the limitations is having your own list. How is that done? List building is a science like boiling water. If you didn’t understand it, you would think that it’s magic or something bizarre. I highly suggest not to buy a list.
What is the best way of getting traffic to a site? I’ve found the best traffic is free organic traffic. All the experts know this and also realize it’s best to have other means of getting traffic as well, however free organic is noted as the best. How does one go about getting free organic traffic? There is a concept known as SEO. What is SEO? It stands for search engine optimization. We are now getting into a topic of much discussion, because most people want to have their interests optimized, but don’t really understand. Being seen as a worthy item is a much desired issue. I’m leaving the topic with the understanding that study of basic SEO is golden and it’s constantly changing.
Upon having your website, blog or whatever optimized or at least getting traffic, you need what we call conversion. Conversion is, when you get folk to do what ever it is that your prospects should do. You may want them to vote, make a comment,play a game, click what ever button (s), purchase something or what ever. Your prospect’s journey begins with what we call copy. Copy is the means of persuading folk to convert. So, you see your ideal promotional strategy consists of essentially a three step policy like this: (1.)viability,(2.) method,(3.) action with analysis. Viability is understanding the competition and how likely you can get your positioning. Your method is what mechanical means will you use. The action is actually doing what you set out to do. Just thinking about a plan won’t get anything done. You must actually do it, then analyze what you did.
