It’s time to reveal a web 2.0 strategy that I have been thinking about for a few days. It’s completely free and I think that it can help bring you a lot more subscribers and a huge amount of traffic. It’s very easy to do (everybody can do it) and you can probably start and get results in less than a day.
I have named it the 10 friends Web 2.0 Marketing strategy. I guess the name could have been a lot shorter and probably a lot cooler, but it’s what I came up with and it sort of describes what you need to do.
The first thing you need to do is get 10 friends. They need to be online and they should all be focusing to get more traffic to their websites. They can be very different from you, and they can be writing about completely different topics from you, but they should be joining you as a friend with the same goal in mind.
Why 10 friends and not 20? I picked 10, because it’s not that difficult to get 10 friends (because they are not really your friends, only people that you know because they are using the Internet to promote their website and so are you). The more people that join you, the better, you can get a lot more than 10, but I think that 10 friends will be enough.
Now, you and your friends should vote on each others posts using the major web 2.0 sites, like StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, Propeller, and share each others post on Facebook and a few other major social networks.
When you do this, your posts will get a boost and will likely get a lot of traffic because of the 10 people who will vote and submit your posts. A lot of people will see your posts, and if they are any good, they will be voting on them as well.
The more people who will join you and help you vote and submit, the better for your marketing.
But remember, you and your friends need to help each other. You need to vote on the posts of all your friends and they need to vote on your posts. If everybody helps out, you will all benefit. This is completely free and it works.
You can keep track on new posts within the group of friends by using a forum, or you can do this by simply sending emails to each other every time you or someone in the group will publish a new post.
I don’t think that voting for the same blog / website every single day might be such a good idea (some people publish new stories every single day, sometimes more than one post a day). If you do vote every single day for a site, the people behind the web 2.0 sites might not like it. I am not sure why, but that’s just a guess.
I am also thinking that all your friends are people with great content, and that you only vote for interesting posts that other people might enjoy as well.
As far as I know, using this marketing strategy is completely legal at all the major web 2.0 sites. But I do suggest that you use all the sites regularly and vote on everything that you like, not just your friends. The more often you use the web 2.0 sites, the better your marketing experience will be.
What do you think, could this be something worth testing?
