Re: How to spread the word about your business fast?
 
It is difficult to grow an online business fast. I spent lots of $$$$ on different programs that I got bombarded with on my email. All claim to bring you traffic. I did not get any traffic or at least not what they claim to bring you. I am sure you have heard "The Money Is In the List".. Yes, this is all so true. I then went to many autoresponder offers and sure they will help you by automating your business, but they do not bring you business, clicks to your site. People interested in what you have to offer, so finally I joined and autoresponder called GetResponse and their sister company GetSubscribers. YES you have to pay. But guess what, Get Subscribers is building a list my lists for my different sites and GetResponder is sending out my email campaigns and I am getting visitors and sales. It does take money to make money. There are other ways to build your business, and it all takes time. If you are serious and into really developing your business seek out the different methods available to grow and nurture your business. I am a real estate broker and an affiliate marketer. The best program I have found to "learn" how to market your business is PlugInProfits. Sorry I cant publish a link yet. As per rules need at least 10 post and I am new here.:eek:
They go through a 30 day training program. You learn at your own pace. If you are like me and find it hard to learn new stuff, you can read it as many times as you want until it sinks in.

Well, I like learning new techniques to get my online business humming. I will be posting what I am learning and hope I can get some more ideas from fellow associates. Thanks

Is that something you heard somewhere?

What I heard somewhere is that "If you can't make money without money, you can't make money with money". I have found that to be true.

I see a link on every one of your posts. How did that happen if you can't publish a link?

Here's an idea for you: Post something useful with out the cheesy link in your sig file and maybe people will respond positively. This site is not spam friendly. It is however very friendly to a useful exchange of business ideas.

I followed your link, checked your profile, and still have no idea what you're selling, or trying to sell.

I am about to start up my own internet based business and would (obviously) like to get as many members subscribing to my site as possible. I am willing to spend money on SEO and Google Adwords, but I wonder how I can use my own existing network to get through to thousands within days or weeks.

E.g. I have 300+ Facebook friends and 150+ LinkedIn connections. I assume I have close (enough) relations with around 100 to use them in spreading my message and get them to sign up on my site. But how do you - generally speaking - break through to their network. What incentives do people need to send a message to their 10+ closest friends, who again send it to their 10+ closest friends etc?

Is begging enough? :p


Henrik,

Do you happen to live near a college or university? If so, the possibilities are endless. You can get exposure via the "greek" organizations, their computer school, flyers, student union, etc. It'll take some leg work but may result in a hefty spike for your business.

Just my 2...

One Way would be to write articles, joining other forums, give out business cards, word of mouth just talking to people about your business
