Social bookmarking is tagging a website and saving it for later, rather than saving it to your internet browser… it’s online, you’ll be able to easily share it with other internet users who may be interested
Social bookmarking can be a MAJOR asset to you as an affiliate marketer, IF you get it right and bookmark the right stuff 🙂
It’s an awesome way for you to spread the word about your product, resulting in droves of traffic to your site
What do bookmarks do?
As an affiliate promoting a product, you need traffic!
Social bookmarking is a way for you to spread the word about the product and if other people like the article you socially bookmark or get interested in the product, they will want to keep a bookmark of it for later reference. And since social bookmarking tools allow people to see each OTHER’S bookmarks and search them, this brings ‘social proof’ to your corner.
It also reveals exactly how a website is perceived by web users, especially when some bookmarking sites allow voting. This show’s the search engines and any other classification system how people feel about the quality of the website. Additionally, it’s a great way to help the search engines find your pages a lot earlier via bookmarking than through some other type of inbound link.
Why do so many affiliates struggle?
You know as well as I do, affiliate marketing is a great way to make a living but there is waaaaay to many affiliate marketers out there who are, well…. broke!
It’s simply because they are missing a couple of vital ingredients to bring it all together.
While social bookmarking is a great way to get your site visible, the problem remains that most affiliate marketers are ‘spamming.’
Yes, the agenda is to get people to your site and ultimately spend money with you, but it has to be done the right way 😉
Why would Internet users bookmark your site anyway?
Here is a clue in the name, ‘social’ bookmarking. It’s a social thing. People are only going to get enthusiastic about the ‘good stuff.’
Here’s a few tips on how NOT to use social bookmarking sites.
Nobody likes a spammer. Don’t be a spammer! Sales copy won’t make it very far in the ranking. The ones who do the best in social bookmarking are the blogs and websites providing genuine, thoughtful entertainment, and content worthy of hearing about.
