And Generate More Leads Quickly Companies today are constantly seeking for more dynamic ways to drive traffic to their brands and products or services in the hope of generating more sales. As technology progresses rapidly, companies are alert to note the increasing number of tools and solutions available for accumulating more potential leads to boost business sales and market awareness of the brand.
Flexible marketing resources include the latest technologies and sophisticated devices which marketers and Internet entrepreneurs deploy for driving traffic. These lead to the choice of vibrant marketing techniques that engage targeted audiences.
Every company is always seeking for potential customers through dynamic marketing strategies to keep the business and brand relevant in the market. However, not all generated traffic is useful to boost sales or promote the brand effectively. Hence, traffic should be filtered to fit targeted audiences or meet business objectives.
1) Quality Posts
Internet marketing requires a strong writing skill that produces quality contents to be posted or emailed to targeted audiences. Special information is generated to meet the needs of niche markets that would benefit the business bottom line. Many web consumers get on the Internet daily to seek out value-added contents from all channels to satisfy their needs.
These could be high quality short articles with new ideas to stimulate consumers’ minds for fresh applications in life and work. Such posts are considered worthy of the market in attracting larger traffic.
Quality articles on subjects that are relevant to targeted audiences would draw many to the site for more. Internet marketers or entrepreneurs may want to post on multiple reputable channels or platforms to gain wider exposure of their brand or business as these avenues offer high readership to enhance the market visibility of the brand or business.
Short posts could be more effective in attracting potential leads to the web business site for more sales, especially if the contents relate to the needs of the specific niche markets. Busy web consumers who are potential business leads could quickly read through the post and make the vital call-to-action response that benefits the company’s bottom line.
2) Blogging Activities
Blogging is known to be very effective in driving traffic to web business sites for companies wanting to grow their mailing list. Internet entrepreneurs or marketers who are good at blogging would find blogging a useful marketing tool to generate more leads quickly. Companies today are also indulging into blogging with the professional presentation of their brands and services or products in an attempt to attract the right markets.
Companies that manipulate blogging must offer intriguing material associated with the brand and business to stir curiosity and interest in targeted niche markets. These blogs could be posted on multiple sites, whether they are outsourced or personal to impact a wider readership. This would lead to more potential business prospects for the company.
A lot could be done with blogs; companies are connecting with blog readers and blog writers to exchange ideas and information to improve their blogs. More business opportunities could happen with the wide circle of bloggers in the market. Blog experts could be consulted to improve blog contents, style or presentation that would attract more readers whom marketers must connect to convert to customers.
Good blogging skills and ethics would boost readership and market presence for the company engaging in blog marketing. Readers tend to flock to websites that provide value-added content in a professional manner without malice, vulgarity or bias against any individual, party or competition. Well structured blogs tend to be focused and directed to that which benefits readers instead of putting others down.
Blog fans are interested in the contents that matter to them personally, although there may be nuances to the business brand for promoting sales.
3) Indulging in Social Networking
As social media becomes a strong force on the Internet, marketers and business owners are quick to engage it as a powerful marketing tool that would benefit their bottom lines. These social networks boast of huge potential leads for any business that is aggressive and dynamic in attracting business prospects.
Social media marketing is popularly engaged to impact web consumers through the right buzz using different social channels like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. When the dynamic features of social network marketing are well understood, online marketers and entrepreneurs are quick to deploy the marketing tools available to drive traffic and generate more leads.
Most of the available social networks today are very reliable and professional in drawing targeted traffic to the business websites. There are plenty of exciting ideas and tools which Internet marketers and entrepreneurs could manipulate to attract social network users as business prospects.
However, sales would not come readily without efforts in establishing communication and building relations with the potential leads by marketers or entrepreneurs. It is vital for good customer relations to be generated through constant communication and personal relations to be established before purchases happen. Personal mails, tweets or posts on social media channels would strengthen relations with potential leads who would respond favorably when trust and confidence in the marketer is present before business branding could happen.
Driving Traffic for More Leads
There is no limit on the means to securing more traffic for boosting a brand or business with the wide technologies in the market today. Rapid technological progress helps create more business opportunities for Internet marketers and entrepreneurs to identify useful tools and solutions in their online marketing endeavors.
The Internet provides a myriad of dynamic marketing tools and solutions; many of which are free to marketers and entrepreneurs. Simple dynamic tools could be found online to be engaged immediately for fast results that delight marketers and business owners. More research on potential marketing tools and strategies would equip marketers better in procuring greater success in their online marketing campaigns.
When Internet entrepreneurs and marketers implement the right marketing strategy to promote their business brand and products, they would enjoy more traffic that would lead to higher conversion rates and sales. This would keep them relevant in the market.

Create Your Own Social Network … How and Why …
Now that you have decided to start your own social networking site, you will have to adjust yourself to a new kind of “life” on the internet. Whether you make your living solely through your computer or are doing this new business as a sideline, your computer is now more than just a tool for your relaxation and staying in touch with friends and family. Although it is true that your site can generate income when you are not focusing on it, it will still take work and time to successfully generate income. You will have to manage your time and efficiently handle the time you spend online. Here are some ways to make the most of the time you spend in your social networking endeavors.
Social Networking Client programs
Most social network software features a social networking client program. These can include additional sites or applications that can be downloaded to augment your social networking. An example of this type of feature would be TweetDeck which informs you of any message on Twitter that mentions you by name. This gives you the ability to respond and become a part of those conversations. FaceBook has partnered with Networkedblog in order to connect your blog to your facebook page. The professional listing site, LinkedIn has several clients and partners such as SlideShare which allows members to display Power Point presentations and other slide shows. Additionally, Squidoo partners with LinkedIn, YouTube, FaceBook and other sites.
The ability to instantly share your postings to other sites due to the automated connection established by your social network client programs will save you a lot of time and hassle. It is important to either use care that you don’t post personal information for “broadcast” use separate accounts for your personal correspondence. Make sure the automated systems you implement for your sites are connecting appropriate pages or sites. For instance, a message you post on FaceBook, being a more casual and personal site, may not be what you want posted on LinkedIn, a more professional and career oriented site.
It is not necessary to respond to every posting or thank you note. Only reply to messages that require additional information or answers to direct questions. Set a schedule for answering emails and posts and stick to it. Segregating emails will help to prevent wasting time. You also don’t need your phone to sound an alarm for every tweet, post or email. If you are not sitting at your computer or at the time of day scheduled for responding, you don’t need your life intruded on by a message coming in. You run the computer, not the other way around. Also, set a schedule for the time you spend initiating contact online.
It is not necessarily a good idea to be selling at all times. First of all, it’s obnoxious. You will lose more contacts than you gain. Remember that your online image does not have your facial expressions attached nor is it easy to communicate “just kidding” through online media. As an online business person, you need strike a balance between professionalism and common courtesy.

How to make social networking less anti-social ______ This weeks question comes from Yasmine: Hi Dave! My name is Yasmine Higgins. Im from the UK and I have watched your Building Social Network video, which was really interesting for me.

Social Networking Tools in the Classroom – Part 1 of 5
Haven’t tried it yet?
I find Twitter is the most fun social networking tool – by far. It feels like a game in some way. It offers real time connection and current synchronization with those you don’t get to be with all the time. It shares interesting new happenings that you wouldn’t have known about.
Tweets are limited to 140 characters – so this requires people to keep their posts short and sweet. And, to top it off, it’s low maintenance! Profiles are light and don’t need much updating. The information below may be a little much if this is your first time on reading up, but check it out for a quick orientation to TwitterLand :).
A seasoned twitterer?
This article is designed for us. All in all, twitter is great left as simple as it is. However, a few tools can enhance the experience. After reviewing tons of available apps, these I find are most useful and enjoyable. Try them out and have some fun! Would love to hear your favorites as well.
One of the most fun ways to use twitter is on your mobile phone. Be ready for the times when you think of the greatest tweets with these phone apps:
TwitterFon- for iPhone Users. An easy to use tool built into your phone. This one freezes less and has great capabilities. Auto posts to Twitpic (a great, easy way to share pics on Twitter). It’s all you need! You can follow, unfollow directly from the app. You can also see DM’s and @replies easily. Links posted in tweets also come up very fast (much faster than through Safari).
TwitterBerry- for BlackBerry Users. Although I am not one, this is the BlackBerry App I hear the most about. Take it from Puff Daddy.
Networking: (aka finding more friends you WANT to follow)
Find someone you enjoy reading and follow their followers. Another great way is to search for keywords and see who is tweeting about your favorite topics. Connect with them that way.
There are websites such as Mr. Tweet who suggest who to follow based on formulas of some type, but I find the natural search works best. They are fun to check out though.
You can also learn about the stars of twitter on the Top 100 List. Interesting…
My top picks – who to follow:
The most entertaining twitters are:
@the_real_shaq – Shaquille O’Neal (Yes, THE Shaq. Funny!)
@RevRunWisdom – Rev Run (Deep thoughts, refreshing ponderisms)
@TheEllenShow – Ellen DeGenerous (Great ideas and fun info!)
@iamdiddy – P Diddy (On a lot with uplifting and fun reads)
@sumsei – Jet Magat (Enlightening concepts and entertainment at its best!)
@tferriss – Timothy Ferriss (Author of 4 hour work week. Always interesting info.)
@MichaelScott – The Office Character (I don’t even watch this show, but his posts are hilarious)
@guykawasaki – Guy Kawasaki (Fun, interesting information, but a LOT of posts)
@MACvPC – Mac vs. PC (Funny)
Following: I found that following under 1,000 people was a little too slow for me. I am not on all that often, but when I log on, I like to see the flow moving. Some find it hard to be following so many people, but with the use of TweetDeck, you can keep up on all the things you want. Search YouTube for some videos on that.
Followers: Once I hit 1,000 followers, the number of my followers increases much more quickly each day. It also allows more opportunity for response from your posts based on the chances of them being online at the same time.
Ratios and Balance Baby: Everyone has their own taste here. Some like to follow as many as possible to get more followers. Some hardly follow anyone back. Some people like to keep a balance between followers and who they’re following. Feel what is right for you. Chances are it may change from time to time. I like to follow everyone back that follows me to keep it a mutual relationship, unless I find their tweets extremely annoying for some reason – which is rare.
TwitterKarma is a great bulk follow/unfollow tool in which you can instantly even things out and only follow those that are following you, if desired. Or you can follow back everyone that is following you with a couple of clicks.
RSS Feed automatically from your blog to Twitter. This application automatically posts your blog posts as a tweet on Twitter. Great for sharing what you’re writing without any maintenance. I am writing an article to share more about fun with feeds and will post when it’s ready.
Search, Tracking, & Alerts
Search the history of tweets for any keyword. Here you can also be alerted when people tweet about you or when your defined keywords are tweeted by selecting the options on the right after a search. You can be auto-notified via feed, if desired.
Sync with Facebook
Facebook is my second favorite social media and it has only gotten more fun with the integration of twitter status updates. Warning: this is only a good idea for those who don’t tweet too much. Otherwise, you overload Facebook with your excessive tweets. I’m one of these who tweets more than I like to post on Facebook, so I no longer integrate the two through Facebook. If you would like to set this up anyway, do this:
In Facebook, add the Twitter application to allow auto posts of your twitter updates into Facebook. It may take a few minutes to go through or process once you’re done, but eventually works with a seamless feed.
TweetDeck just added a new feature where you can post to Facebook as well. Love it! This is my top option while working on the computer as it’s fully integrated and most fun.
For those who post more often, you may want to try this set up: I have another service through Ping.Fm which I use when I want my posts to go to both to Facebook and Twitter, while using my phone. Also works well from the internet if you’re not using TweetDeck. To post to Ping.Fm on your iPhone, use Nambu. Try BlackPing for BlackBerry.
@ – immediately followed by a user name is a mention. It links their profile by making it clickable and notifies them of your response.
# – immediately followed by a word is a hashtag. It creates a search of that word when clicked. A popular example is #FollowFriday in which people recommend their favorite people to follow.
DM – A direct, private message
RT – Re-Tweet (re-post of someone’s tweet)
There are apps out there that allow auto-follows, auto-responders, special programs to tweet from your computer, tool bars for your web browser, and so much more. I find all these are unnecessary. People get irritated with the canned responses. And everything else I’ve looked at makes Twitter too much of high maintenance (AKA less fun). However, a quick search on “Twitter Tools” will bring up the infinite possibilities if you are interested. And you never know what new tools may actually be fun to use.
Would love to hear your experience and your favorite apps for Twitter. Please post!
