Are you familiar with social bookmarking? If so, are you currently putting it to use as part of your online marketing strategy? If you are not there is no better time than right after you learn how easy this is. A simple feel good kind of marketing thing I’ll show you.
Social bookmarking is one of those simple marketing tactics that start to become second nature while you’re doing your thing online. You will start to do this after reading, watching funny videos, learning, posting juicy content to your website or blog, and commenting on you’re favorite blogs and article posts. Can you start to see how it’s not just about your site. How cool will that feel when more and more people start to “digg” your content and posts over time? Pretty cool I think.
Can you Digg it?
First you are going to open up a Digg account, which takes about 1 minute or so. If you want to go the extra mile you can set up the page with your picture, a short bio and a few links.
Now every time you are online and participate in commenting or reading a post that you like you can Digg it by copying the url and uploading it to your Digg account.
You will be able to add a few keywords into the description to help other people find the content as well. It’s really that simple, in fact is to simple you would be surprised how many people just don’t do it. Everyone always seems to want to go the harder route. Don’t you get that feeling sometimes?
Time to cook up a Delicious bookmarking strategy.
This social bookmarking tool is a great way to start to build some exposure for yourself and your favorite content. Like Digg you will setup a Delicious account. This is pretty simple and if you use yahoo at all you can sign in with that account. Now I really hope you use Firefox or some kind of Mozilla web browser. You will want to get the book marketing toolbar installed.
When you are on any page you like and yes your own page as well. Just right click and bookmark to Delicious or hit Ctrl-D on the keyboard. This will popup the bookmarking screen. You simple add some keywords and a short note click bookmark and wammo your done.
Again do not go crazy with this because it will look spammy, just keep it natural and the ball will bigger and bigger over time. Have your team start to do these two things and wow you will notice some things happening.
