Here are six ideas to help you start your advertising viral marketing campaign:
-1. Purchase the branding rights to a viral E-book. Allow people to give away your free E-book to their visitors. Then, their visitors will also give it away. This will just continue to spread your ad all over the Internet. However, before you do, make sure that you have put your name and logo or your brand onto the ebook. That way, when it starts to go viral, people will know who is responsible for this, and they will want to visit your site.
-2. If you have the ability to set up a forum or other bulletin board, you really have a great tool. Allow people to use your online discussion board for their own website. Some people don’t have one. Just include your banner ad at the top of the board.
-3. Do you have a special knack for web design or are you proficient with creating web pages? Create some templates, graphics, etc. and upload them to your site. Then, allow people to give away your free web design graphics, fonts, templates, etc. Just include your ad on them or require people to link directly to your web site. Make sure that you include a link back to your site in the copyright notice and require them to keep your copyright notice in tact. This way, peopel are always coming back to and linking to your site. And that is what you want… more people coming to your site and buying your products.
-4. Write an E-book. You will be surprised how easy this is to do. 30-50 pages will be more than enough. With this being said, make the book about something you are very knowledgeable on. Don’t write an ebook and just ramble on about anything, just so you have content. This will hurt you more than help you. Then, allow people to place an advertisement in your free E-book if, in exchange, they give away the E-book to their web visitors or E-zine subscribers.
-5. Write articles that pertain to your product or service. Allow people to reprint your articles on their website, in their E-zine, newsletter, magazine or E-books. Include your resource box and the option for article reprints at the bottom of each article.
-6. You can easily find products on the Internet that will sell you a license allowing you to distribute the product free of charge to other people. Look for those products that provide “branding rights”. That is where you can include your own name, website, and contact information.
These are 6 very easy tips on how to boost your advertising, with very little up front costs. And when you keep your costs low, then you can enjoy the fruits of your labor even more.
