  • CampusLIVE paid Lindsay Lohan about $3,500 for one tweet which resulted in 4,500 clicks to their website. This equates to $o.77 cent a click and at this price point celebrity tweeting competes with Google Adwords and Facebook advertising.Control the news: One of the best marketing tactics is to befriend others; groups, individuals and/or news organizations. Let people and organizations know what your business is about, how you benefit the community and upcoming events. Toot your horn so that the entire world may hear the music.Consumers are eager to be reminded of exciting events, have their minds taken off negative aspects of the economy and learn about savings or events that will benefit them. Vera Wang is rarely if ever photographed walking down the streets of NY. Wang did something unheard to promote the Kardashian wedding gown. About one week before Kim’s wedding, Vera and Kim were photographed together walking down a NY street.

E-mail Basics Opt-in mailing lists are now the preferred method for customers. Consider creating an online newsletter. Consider time-limited online "coupons" that can be redeemed at your site. Each email should also contain instructions for removed from the email list. Best email content should be shared. Forwards are nice, but most people these days want to tweet, Like, +1, post on LinkedIn, or share on other social networks. Track everything: email open rates, clicks on the link provided in the email, the views on the landing page, and all social media shares. @equintanilla
