How do I market my blog or video is something I see people having problems with all over the place?

When I talk about marketing your blog, video, article, etc…

I am talking about sharing it to get views. Generating leads to offers you may have to monetize your blog, video, or whatever it is that you are trying to help improve other peoples online experience…

There are many different ways to do that, but I am just going to share some of the ways I get the word out about my blog posts, videos, etc.

I get this question all the time? “I blog every day, but how do I get people to see my blog?”

Here are a few of the things that I do…

First of all, when you create a video, write a blog post about what is in the video and put the video into your blog post…

This gives you a way to promote the blog and the video at the same time…

So, what do you do or where to you go to share your videos, blog posts, articles, etc.?

When I finish my blog post and have published it, I go to http://digg.com/ and post the URL for the video or blog post into Digg or what is called Digging your post or video, etc. Digg then sends your submission out to its many social media platforms, etc.

I also use a site called http://onlywire.com. OnlyWire syndicates your blog posts to over 50 social networking sites *simultaneously* with one button click. Increase your blog traffic overnight. There is also a WordPress plugin that I use, that automatically posts to Onlywire when I publish my blog post…

I also use several other Social Networking sites to market with…

There are several site out there where you can post tweets similar to Twitter Tweets that consist of 140 characters…

For example: If I was going to tweet this post that I am writing right now, it would look something like this:

How Do I Market My Blog Or Video Might Be A Question You Have Been Asking Yourself… http://ow.ly/dWvi7  

The important thing to notice is the link that I have put into the tweet. This link is where you put your marketing to send people to where you want them to go. In this example, I am directing people to this bog post.

You can send people anywhere from there, just make sure it is relevant to what you are blogging about or your video is about, etc. You wouldn’t want to send someone to a Dog Training site if your material is about Wedding Planning…?

I use a site called Hootsuite to create my original tweet because it has a URL shortener built in. So I would go to http://hootsuite.com and create an account first. Once you are logged in you will see a box to enter your text. Also at the bottom of that box you will see a smaller box with “shrink” next to it. That is where you will put the URL to your post, video, or whatever it is that you are trying to market. Ater you create your tweet click on the shrink button and you URL will be automatically shortened and added to the end of your tweet…

From there I would copy the tweet I have just created, now don’t send this particular tweet out yet. Copy the tweet and we will paste this tweet into several other social networking sites…

Here are a few that I use, but there are literally probably hundreds of sites out there:

Create free or paid accounts at the following sites of your choice:

https://swom.com

https://bizoppers.com

https://seesmic.com

http://www.sokule.com

These are just a few, I am sure you can find many more and I am sure there are other sites like OnlyWire that syndicate to tens or hundreds of sites at once that you could use…

Here is a side note for you: When you are setting up your different Social Networking sites, some sites will allow you to post to many different sites with one click. Be sure to not include the same sites in each one of these or you will be posting the same tweet to the same site over and over again.

For example: Several sites may automatically tweet to Twitter, Facebook, etc. when you put your tweet on there site if you tag these sites during your setup… In other words don’t set up more than one site to post to any one social media site? I hope that makes sense? You want to promote not spam…

By doing what I have outlined above you can send people to other sites to get more information regarding your topic or you can send people to an affiliate link that will also give them more information or training about the same topic and give you an opportunity to earn if they purchased from your link…

This is what I do in my business to market my blog, video, or whatever it is that you are trying to promote. Take this article and expand on what I have covered here. Like I said there are many many social networking sites out there. Find the ones that include people from your particular target market and jump in with both feet and get started.

Just remember to honor other peoples space and “DO NOT SPAM”

Let me know if this helps you at all in the comments box below and if you have other suggestions that will help others with this particular subject, post them here as well.

I want to share with you a handbook that in my opinion will open up your mind to an awesome way to earn bigger amounts of cash in your business as well as teach you other ways to market, and you can pick it up for just a few pennies.  Check it out here…
