With non conventional promotion, you avoid costly tri media expenses and create analmost demonic cult-following for your new product or service. All you need is a bit ofunconventional thinking.Let’s get down to brass tacks.Since 1999, I’ve been launching successful start-ups. Most were pure online initiatives, but two areclick-and-mortar hybrids. Today, each business unit makes enough to pay the utility bills, indulge infancy dinners, and fly off on exotic vacations. Just key my name in google and you’ll have an ideaof my different passions.Skyrocketing my pursuits to niche dominance doesn’t take a Ph.D degree. Allow me to bare mysecrets:1. ESTABLISH A PRODUCT-CENTRIC ONLINE COMMUNITY. eGroups, yahoogroups and google groups allow the establishment of virtual families where people of like minds converge. WIth just a group of twenty active participants, you create a massive product buzz that eventually snowballs into unstoppable viral marketing.My earliest endeavor revolved around business NLP, mind advancement and dating. Coaching was
Report on Traffic Tactics Brought to you by Sling Shot Traffic Tacticsmy passion and TV advertising would have cost a bleeding arm. I tackled the challenge bydeploying an eGroup account and posting free self-help articles. At the 10th post, curiouswebsurfers began signing up and participating. They left comments, added suggestions and invitedother friends to jump in. The forum then grew exponentially and I witnessed a living, organic groupof 8000+ members. People traded stories, joked, passed on tips and even flirted outrageously. Forme, this meant a goldmine of targetted advertising: I would post one product announcement everyquarter to a community already avid on the subject!2. GIVE THEM FREE LUNCHES. Everybody loves a freebie; I snap up product samples at the mall or grocery store. When I get home and try that free shampoo sachet, I’d eventually come back and buy a bottle at a bloodcurdling $19.95. Mall owners were on to something!Free eBooks, articles and mp3 recordings are hot downloads on the web. To target the army offreebie addicts, I jumpstarted Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Audition. Every month saw me marchingout armadas of pdfs and mp3s. They were my eager footsoldiers, poised to strike at at freewaredownload sites.So how did this benefit me? Each pdf and mp3 is armed with a resource segment containing myURLs and services. As these marketing warriors circulate the web, they stir up a storm ofawareness... and direct traffic to my sites.GIVE LIFETIME MONEY BACK GUARANTEES.What would do if you saw a product that trumpted “Unlimited Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee?” Ofcourse you wouldn’t think twice about buying it. There’s no risk on the part of the buyer... after allthe product can be returned ten days—or ten months after purchase. Let your confidence in yourproduct show by backing it up with unconditional guarantees.4. TREAT CUSTOMERS LIKE FAMILY.Avoid canned responses. Reply immediately. Offer solutions, not qualified excuses. Throw in value-adding surprises such as unannounced freebies and 24/7 tech support. Friendly gestures might cost abit of money, but it goes a long way in building warm customer relationships. You want to createfriends out of your clients.

You may be the best at what you do, but if you bad mouth the competition, you cast a pall upon your reputation.

Don’t worry about lost sales; customers will naturally appreciate your impartialityand quickly realize that you’re after their welfare.Business isn’t always about making money. It’s about nurturing relationships and building socialnetworks. Once word of your superb business practices spread, revenue will follow.Why Content is Still KingIt was a year ago that I attended my first search engine strategies conference. It was also at thisconference that I became a speaker.Search Engine Strategies and PubCon are undoubtedly the two largest SEO/SEM conferences outthere today so of course theres huge attendance and lots of big industry names attending.Theres also a guy there who you may have heard of. His name is Barry Schwartz and hes fromSearch Engine Round Table. I bring his name up because hes found one of the best ways to notonly build an ever expanding content base up, but also a way to build quality relevant links. Andits so simple one begins to wonder why others dont do it.Before I get into what hes doing let me give you a little history. He started covering SES a fewshows ago and would post summaries of the various seminars he attended at theSearchEngineWatch forum.His posts were some of the most read posts during the conference. He soon also began postinglonger summaries at his own site. Also very well read by those of us who couldnt attend the show.Now hes become "the" reporter for the SES shows wherever they are. He even went into this onewith a plan to cover as many of the sessions as possible, between himself and others known in theSEM industry. Some of the posts end up at the SEW forums but he also posts many on his own site.Step one - theres that ongoing content development.You see, what the folks at SEO roundtable are doing is creating very long, but very detailedsummaries of every seminar they attend. They then post these to their website daily or more often.Each post occupies its own static page, and most pages are well linked within the site.
Report on Traffic Tactics Brought to you by Sling Shot Traffic TacticsStep two - Relevant quality links and lots of themNow heres the great part. It is because of this coverage that people have come to realize that thissite is the site to go to for SES coverage. Between this site and the SEW forums you can prettymuch get your fill of SES in a very compact version. (Trust me for some of the sessions, a lightsummary is much better than sitting through 90 minutes of dry explanations of how rankingalgorithms work :) ).And because people rely on these summaries of the show that they begin to refer others to them.Either through word of mouth or, more importantly, links.This is where the relevant quality links kick in. What is a link to an SEM site from another SEMsite worth? What would you pay to have your competitors link to you with lots of one way links,many from high authority sites? Because of this article, they even have a link from here.Plus they get links from Searchenginewatch, in both the forums and the blog entries, not to mentionother high profile industry sites. Whats link from Matt Cutts blog with a photo worth to this site?You see, this site is building its online reputation the way everyone needs to - by posting relevanttimely information that others want to see. Then the others link to that content in a natural way.Let me put it to you another way - of the over 3,000 links this site has, how many do you supposeare from content? More specifically, how many are due to the sites summaries of the various SESshows theyve attended? Links may not be directly to the topics in question. In fact many are not.In fact, if you scan through the top 100 links or so listed in Google you see a virtual whos who ofthe SEO industry. Let me point out a few of the more notable links: Links from Yahoo Search Blog,as well as the MSDN MSN search blog. Of course theres many from Searchenginewatch, but alsofrom other industry sites like searchviews.com, seomoz.com and searchenginejournal.com just toname a few.So what has the site accomplished by attending all the SES shows since late 2003? Well, theyvebuilt lots of good content which helps relay their authority status to engines like Google.Further, theyve gotten lots of quality inbound links from high profile related sites that are alsoconsidered authorities. Plus theyve also built a reputation for being the place to go to find outabout SES which means increased traffic to the site. Not to mention that theyve now probably got
