Social bookmarking sites are a great way to generate leads for your network marketing business. Here is how you can use the top 5 sites!
With more than 15 million websites on the Internet, people needed to find a way to save their favourite sites without having to hunt for them through web browsers all the time. And this is how social bookmarking was born.
Users find it very time consuming and messy to keep searching for a site that they like all the time. Checking through web browsers to find a specific site can only be limited to one computer, thus causing immense frustration on the user’s part.
When social bookmarking first evolved, it came as a godsend to most users. Today, users are no longer required to use a browser, but can simply use a website to find what they want.
There are plenty of social bookmarking sites today, where you can go and create an account and start bookmarking your favourite sites. Your chosen site will then be saved along with all your other bookmarks. What’s more, the keywords that you use to describe the site, or the tags, will also be saved in a list of tags.
You can then sort out your bookmarks by the tags that you’ve assigned. Your friends can see your bookmarks and tags, thus benefiting them as well! This is a great way to create a whole network of friends who have the same interests as you!
Social bookmarking sites can also be used to generate leads for your MLM business. These social bookmarking sites have millions of people that visit them every day, out of which thousands and thousands are looking for new ways to make money.
The top 5 social bookmarking sites include:
Delicious is one of the oldest social bookmarking sites that maintain an audience of nearly 1.1 million visitors! With such a staggering number of visitors participating in it, Delicious is indeed a very powerful tool for anyone who is looking to generate leads.
If you “dig” or bookmark a site, it will then be submitted to the Digg service where other users can also view and “dig” it. The more digs a site receives, the more popularity it gets and the opportunity to be at the top of the site’s front page.
Getting your website to rank at the top of the site exposes you to nearly 25 million visitors a month.
Now that you know what the top 5 social bookmarking websites are, how do you use these sites to generate a sufficient number of leads for your MLM business?
It is actually quite exciting!
If you’ve written a number of articles with regards to your MLM opportunity or services and products, it is important to bookmark it at a “do follow” social bookmarking site. This will help to increase the number of quality incoming links to your content.
Search engines see this link popularity of yours as a sort of a “thumbs up” vote for the quality of your content and then proceed to increase your visibility by moving your search engine rankings up. This way, you will get more hits from the search engines itself.
You can also receive tons of leads and traffic from social bookmarking websites themselves. Many people that visit these sites can come across your bookmarks and view your content. This organic traffic can take place at both “do follow” as well as “no follow” sites.
And we all know that the first rule to network marketing is that the more the traffic; the more will be the leads generated!
- Generating Leads through “Do Follow” Social Bookmarking Sites:
- When you bookmark your content at a “do follow” bookmarking site, the search engines will then view it as an incoming link to your content. The more incoming links leading to your content, the higher will be your rankings.
- Generating Leads through “No Follow” Social Bookmarking Sites:
- When you bookmark your content at a “no follow” site, then the search engines won’t count it as incoming links to your content and won’t help your rankings move up. But it will bring you tons of organic traffic from the social bookmarking sites themselves!
However, there are certain steps to avoid when using social bookmarking sites to generate leads for your MLM business. Refrain from bookmarking only your own sites. The community frowns upon such a practice, as this seems like spam.
You could also get penalized by the search engines. So, don’t just go out and shamelessly promote your own content. For every site of yours that you promote, try promoting at least 3 to 4 other sites as well.
Make it a habit to bookmark at least one site a day. In the long run, it will all add up! If done correctly, social bookmarking can tremendously increase the traffic and leads to your site – and this can only lead to more sign ups!
So, go ahead and sign up with any or all of the top 5 social bookmarking sites, start bookmarking and be social!
