How To Use Google Alerts, Linkedin & Pinterest To Find Top Trending Marketing Tips For Advertising Your Product, Affiliate Product Or Service - Bonus Images With Marketing Examples Included.
After reading this blog post you will have a good understanding of how you can use Google Alerts, Linkedin and Pinterest to find the top trending marketing tips for advertising your product, affiliate product or service. Images have been included along with links to actual examples of how I use these 3 major tools to market and advertise my own online businesses.
Many have asked me how I find the latest trending marketing tips to promote my products and affiliate links so I thought it would be a great time to share it with you. Below is a short list of my resources with links embedded so that you can check them out for yourself. I will also give you a short explanation on how and why I use each for advertising my products and affiliate products.
I have a few more but those are my top 3 resources which I use on a daily basis.
How and Why I use these trending networks for my marketing efforts.
I like Google Alerts mainly because I get my latest tips delivered right to my inbox on a daily basis so I don't have to go around searching for them. I can simply open the email and weed out what I think I might not be interested in and just click on the links that I do want to explore further.
With Google Alerts, I get access to all kinds of new press releases, B2B articles and really great high quality content blog posts.
All I did to start getting my daily alerts was go to the website and enter my search information on what I wanted to receive. Below is a screenshot of what you will see when you click on the embedded link above.
To get your alerts started just enter your trending topic of interest and select the rest of the information from the drop down boxes by clicking on the arrows to the right. I always choose Everything as my option from the first and then I can always change it later if I want to. last thing you have to do is just enter your email and that's it.
You can stop or adjust your alerts anytime right from your email account when you view them.
One good example of how I use my alerts is actually right in front of your nose now. I found the screen capture software I'm using for the image above over a year ago in a Blog post I was notified about from Google. Once you start getting your own alerts and start exploring them, you will find all kinds of ways to use them for your own advertising and marketing of your products.
I've used these great trending tips in my Power Of One member updates, Ibotoolbox press releases, PRLOG press releases and several times on this blog actually.
Linkedin has been a resource which I've been a member of for years now and I'm beginning to find this a great tool for finding my tips also. All I did to find my tips on this platform was join a few marketing Group boards and login a couple times a week to read the latest profile updates members were posting.
I get an email every day from the group boards I belong to as well so once again, I don't have to go looking for the information. I get the top trending marketing tips for advertising my product or affiliate product right to my inbox.
One of the tips I received just I believe in the fall of last year, was that Linkedin had a new feature which allowed members to post all their published works on their profile pages. How did I use that information?
You can read that for yourself in this blog post I wrote back on September 14, 2013. That post is a great tip in itself as since I've applied what I show you in it, my blog traffic has increased from viewers of my Linkedin profile. The image below shows an example of my Linkedin marketing as taken from my profile.
Pinterest Image Network.
I think I should have actually placed this as number one since I just love Pinterest.
Whatever you're involved with to make money online and no matter what products you are selling, you should have images on the website where your products or service can be purchased. Pinterest is the perfect and for sure the best place to market through the use of those images.
Every time you Pin one of your product images, your business links are attached and embedded with those images. Pinterest is still the fastest growing social network online today and I strongly believe they have an excellent chance in surpassing the almighty Facebook in regards to member population.
I post many images from my Clickbank, Amazon, Blog posts, Power Of One and just today I added the MarketHealth affiliate program image. With millions of members looking for images to post on their own boards, it's not hard to get your business links noticed which increases in views over time.
Pinterest gives you full statistics through your analytics tab which show you the amount of attention your links are receiving. Join a few group boards like Marketing Hows, Advertisement, 24-365, the Re-Pin Exchange, Pinterest Mini-Mall Viral Board, start pinning and watch your repins come in to your email inbox notices.
The amount of time I spend on Pinterest is only about 20 minutes daily which is used to build my followers and add my pins. then I simply sit back at my desk and move on to getting other things done in my day.
