The Internet is a tough place to get started in marketing your products or services. Gone are the days of a small on-line community in which competition was not abundant and customers would simply type in what they were looking for and find one or two websites to choose from. If you simply start a website selling your product or service and never engage in active marketing, chances are you will never see a sale or they will trickle in at a rate that will only frustrate you. This is why it is more important than ever to develop a robust Internet marketing plan.
How do you get started in Internet marketing?
Once you have decided that you are serious about marketing your product or service through the Internet, it is not terribly hard to get started in doing so. The main way on-line marketeers are generating leads and sales in today’s Internet marketplace is called “backlinks”. Backlinks are simply links to your website that come from another unaffiliated website. If you have quality backlinks on highly visible, high-traffic websites, you have a built-in audience, one that you don’t have to spend time building, that will see your link and click through to your website.
How do I get backlinks?
There are a few ways to get backlinks to your website. One is to exchange backlinks, that is, you place a link to their website on your website, and they do the same. The problem is, website operators looking to exchange backlinks want your website to have roughly the same amount of traffic as their website, so that the advertising relationship is fairly balanced. If you do not have a large amount of traffic, the only backlinks others will exchange with you are links to other low-traffic websites.
Another way to generate backlinks is to pay for them. You’ll quickly go broke if you try this! It works, but to get onto websites with high levels of traffic, you will need a large amount of money and you may never make it all back.
The only way to generate backlinks completely free-of-charge is blog commenting. You’ve been onto blogs where, at the bottom of their post, they have a box in which you can post comments onto the blog post. These comment boxes also have an area for you to enter a website, making your name on the blog comment a clickable link. You may also place a URL into the comment itself, but you must be careful to make sure the content in your comment and on your website is relevant, or you will soon find yourself blocked for “spamming”. In fact, some anti-spam scripts are so zealous that many legitimate comments never see the light of day.
So I have to go and find all these blogs by myself and hand-type a comment onto all of them?
Not necessarily. There is software out there that will automatically post comments onto blog posts, but the problem with them is that they are the online equivalent to “envelope stuffing” with junk mail. You get a high volume of highly “spammy” posts that end up either rejected or removed from the blog’s comments section, or people end up passing over them anyway. It’s not a quick road to success.
There is a new program, called Blogcomment Demon, that is nothing like any previous blog commenting software. Not only does it search for blogs on the most popular blog sites such as WordPress, Blogspot, and LiveJournal, it tracks the approval of these comments, and allows you to insert your own comments (hand-typed, copied-and-pasted, or auto-generated) into these blogs for maximum effectiveness and quality control. It is the equivalent of finding and hand-typing comments into blogs, but it is an automated process to save time. Other comment programs either spam blogs indiscriminately, or they only generate lists of blogs, requiring you to sort and comment on the blogs yourself, making them no better than manually commenting by yourself for free.
So what really makes Blogcomment Demon different from the rest?
Well, there’s everything we already mentioned. It keeps track of when comments are approved, so you don’t have to go back and check for yourself. Blogcomment Demon allows you to sort blogs by their Google PageRank and other popularity metrics. You can make notes on each blog, select a blog as a favorite, and manage your marketing campaign. Because some blog platforms block IP addresses of internet marketeers that use blog comments to create backlinks, Blogcomment Demon has support for proxy servers.
Blogcomment Demon includes free lifetime upgrades with a purchase. The upgrade from version one to version two is night-and-day and Blogcomment Demon only continues to add more features to create quality backlinks. Blogcomment Demon also has a free training center that includes videos to teach you how to use Blogcomment Demon to its maximum effectiveness. Most other Internet marketing software programs simply take your money and leave you to figure it all out, but Blogcomment Demon is not most other Internet marketing software programs.
