We have seen a lot of people disregarding the time spent online looking for places to advertise and submitting manually the content and links they saw fit to advertise business with.
Yes…using boots to post ( read spam) on Twitter , Facebook and MySpace but also on the many other social networking sites is exponentially easier than posting comments and opinions a.k.a links manually. But does it last?
Well… it doesn’t. Take WordPress blogging for example.
We have seen people hiring other people to use automatic boots to post spam comments on blogs and forums.
Yes. It is a smart software involved and the work may seem easy but give it a week or two and a couple of annoyed users ticketing as spam the comments posted on their blogs and you’ll have the surprise to see your software banned and most likely you site banned too.
Here is an online marketing statement verified and worked for 5 years:
Once you are banned, you’ll never get back.
Keep in mind that easy money might be extremely appealing but real marketing must be worked, thought and designed, it takes time and it generates effect.
How to get visitors without spamming answer sites, social networks and blogging platforms?
Look for topics resembling your stuff, don’t be afraid to step into a discussion, offer examples, share your honest opinion, be personal and most of all take the time to post manually and you will see a constant growth in your traffic.
Offer your business some of your time and most of all, share the info that you learn. Be sure that it will be appreciated and that alone is value added to your marketing skill.
