The Benefits Of Social Media For Marketing.
For this post I have added links to some new social media sites that actually pay you simply for signing up and inviting new members, some pay actual money, one of them pays crypto currency for being active on their platform, simply scroll down to get yourself signed up to them, they are all 100% free to join, so if you want to make some extra money by doing what you already do anyway, simply sign up to them, sit back and watch your money build up.
We all now that social media is a very useful tool when it comes to affiliate marketing because it’s a great way of getting traffic to your website and best of all, it’s free, you just need to sign up to some social media platforms, build up your followers then start adding links to your website.
Whenever anyone mentions social media most people or at least a very large number of people automatically think of Facebook, well there’s no surprise there really because Facebook is the biggest social networking platform, however, Facebook has now put some restrictions on the number of friend requests you can make.
The best way to use social media for affiliate marketing purposes is to send friend requests to people who you think may be interested in your own particular niche, for instance if your niche is fishing tackle you would join fishing and anglers groups and send friend requests to those members.
However, if you try to use this idea on Facebook, you get a popup message saying “We recommend sending friend requests only to people who you know personally”, after which, if you attempt to add more friends you get another popup message, this time saying, “Please only send friend requests to people who you know personally. If you think this “doesn’t” go against our community standards, let us know. You are then no longer allowed to add friends.
In this post I’m going to be introducing you to alternative social media networks that are a bit more affiliate marketer friendly because they not only allow you to send friend requests but you also get rewards for inviting friends to join, the first one I’ll be showing you allows you to earn crypto currency for adding posts and being active as well as inviting friends to join.
Pocketnet is a fully decentralised publishing and social networking platform based on block-chain technology, which means it is not controlled by any single entity or corporation, Pocketnet is self policed so everyone will always see your content, no one records you activity for advertising purposes, you will earn cryptocurrency just by actively posting content, which goes directly into your pocket coin wallet.
Pocket coins are used exclusively for advertising on the pocketnet platform, so if companies or retailers want to advertise their business or products they will have to do so by buying pocketnet coins from members, so the sooner you join the sooner you can earning pocket coins. >>JOIN POCKETNET HERE<<
Get Paid To Unite.
Another platform that I believe affiliate marketers may be interested in is THIS PLATFORM where you get paid for inviting new members, with bUnited you actually get paid for uniting people, because the more people that are united the more say this new networking platform will have when it comes to policies that impact on our planet, so by joining you’ll not only get paid but you’ll be helping to save the planet.
Eventually this platform will be world wide with literally millions of members, so I would advise anyone and everyone to join now and start inviting new members, you get $10 credit for every member you invite + $10 for every member they invite, you also have the peace of mind that you are uniting and doing your bit to help save the planet.
Webtalk is another social networking platform that pays you to invite members, webtalk is actually for business and personal use, which means you have business friends on one list and personal friends in another, in fact there are many tools for sending, posting and sharing different items and content to different friend or business groups.
With webtalk you can’t join unless you have an invite, only members can invite other members, so I can invite you, after which once you have joined, you can then invite new members, so you can start earning.
Another social networking platform is MeWe, which is similar to Facebook but without all the adverts and clutter, it’s user friendly and protects your online privacy, the overall design of MeWe is very minimalistic to reduce clutter and make it easier and simpler to use, it has all the facilities of Facebook, such as posting items and private or group chat.
I’m not suggesting that anyone uses these social networking sites instead of Facebook or Twitter but they can be used as well as, you could use the networks I’ve recommended for your business and keep Facebook and Twitter for your friends and social contacts.
Social Media And Where It All Began.
Jim Ellis and Tom Truscot came up with the first ever form of social networking in 1979, they called it Usenet, which was in a very basic form, it was for posting news articles to news groups, however, I wonder if Jim and Tom could have foresaw what their little invention would eventually lead to.
Next up was he Bulletin Board System (BBS) which were accessible by one person at a time, but it allowed users to log onto their computer and connect with each other.
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) popped up in 1988 and it was used for file sharing as well as connecting people, IRC was the first program that could be used for instant messaging.
Sixdegrees was launched in 1997, it was the first social networking sites that had a personal profile facility so users could fill out their own personal profiles, by 2001 it had almost one million members.
Friendstar was launched in 2002 and it was the first ever platform that could be called a social networking site and at its peak it had over 100 million members, Friendstar was closely followed by Linkedin and Hi5.
Myspace was next on the scene, after it’s launch in 2004 it eventually became the most famous social networking platform in the world, users could completely customise their profiles, post videos and music, it was also the first social network to use instant messaging (IM).
Myspace was quickly followed and gradually overtaken by Facebook, though quite similar to MySpace, Facebook managed to keep making improvements and adding new and various features to its platform, though they may have been small improvements, it was enough to take the lead in social networking and to this day Facebook is not only the biggest social network but it is still growing.
YouTube launched it’s platform in 2005, it was the first major video sharing platform, YouTube can be a good source of website traffic and though I do have a YouTube account I really must start adding more content to it.
Twitter arrived on the scene in 2006 it was originally designed for mobile use but it soon upgraded Twitter now has over 300 million users.
In 2010 Instagram was born, it uses social interaction but it is more of a visual communication platform.
Many people are now beginning to use the internet to start their online businesses, either for earning a little extra money or as in most cases trying to build a full time sustainable income, how you leverage the various social media platforms may play a sizable roll in your online affiliate marketing business, if social media can be used for reaching out to potential clients and customers, and I believe it can, we should all take full advantage of it.
