Online marketing information can change quickly This article is 10 years and 8 days old, and the facts and opinions contained in it may be out of date.
I rarely do promotional posts unless I really believe in a product, and the person behind it. Andy has beat me to providing a linkbaiting service that I think will hold an enormous amount of value for subscribers. The service consists of writing an article that has a very high likelihood of going viral, and giving it the gentle nudge it needs for success in the social network arenas. Mr. Hagans has explained his service to me, and it is a great mix between public relations, viral marketing, and search optimization. All totaled – it looks like a pretty awesome service – and I’m sure if it wasn’t, Andy wouldn’t put his name on it. I don’t think he’s officially launched yet (though he gave me the okay to post this), so get in before the demand and price rises.
From Andy’s site:
- Quality organic links from blogs and other Web sites that will help organic SEO efforts (and yes, link baiting has been approved by search engine representatives as a “white hat” tactic)
- Brand exposure on social bookmarking and tagging sites, which can lead to mindshare overnight
- A large amount of traffic (thousands to tens of thousands of unique visitors)
- A feature piece of content on your Web site that will receive bookmarks, citations and links over time, and which will further entrench your Web site as unique and valuable to the community and Web as a whole.
This is probably a great place to mention Rand’s linkbaiting service as well – which is geared more towards application development that is likely to go viral. I really can’t picture Rand offering a poor service either.
Great stuff guys.
