    Default What is the "hottest" in IM right now???

    As in what do most of the IMers do right now - Pinterest, Youtube, Twitter, building lists, something else???

    From my own observations, link building took quite a bit of a dive, but more and more people are turning to YouTube for traffic. What do you spend your time working on the most?

    Yes, you are right. It is probably one of the more expensive methods to learn with the trial and error part

    I dont think link building has taken a dive , its just the way people are building it. First of all you need to concentrate on building a really good site with good engaging content and build good quality links to rank the website and then when visitors come to your website make them go to your social page or newsletter so that you increase the value of your visitor.

    Nice topic! Being new to IM, this info. is helpful because I kind of know where to begin. Somebody posted on another thread that people stating out on bhw are kind of like a kid in a candy store. There is so much info, so many suggestions...it's hard to say "I'm going to really push blogging, etc". This kind of post helps me because it's not too far off from what I was thinking, which means i'm learning, which makes me more confident. Please continue to post on this thread!

    Completely agreed. Many of you will say social media is the future, CPA is the best etc etc etc ... Email marketing is the most profitable and part-automated side of IM.

    Seriously: {Social Media|Multi-Media|Link Building|Email Marketing|Media Buys}. Spin for unique variations.

    There has never been a time of more possibility. There are more platforms now than ever, ecommerce is more than legitimate now with so many new customers popping up each day, so pick any method and run with it. But, for the love of God, do work instead of copy/pasting methods, and you will not be making threads asking what to do because you'll see "oh hey, work gets results, and with these methods, the effectiveness of my work is force multiplied...who would have thought that putting integrity into something that's "easy" brings ridiculous rewards?"

    I thought we did this kind of marketing to, you know, not run with the herd and do what everyone else thinks is hot? They come here to learn, so it's sort of imperative for us here to innovate, yes? yes.

    Almost anything works if you are doing it the right way! It is up to you how do you work, implement the tactics and find your own twist. At the moment I concentrate on email marketing, but SEO, Youtube etc. works as good and can be of course linked with email marketing as well.

    Selling "real looking" social media accounts and email marketing tools . Oh, mass video uploaders and video creation software.

    But, seriously, social has been a huge traffic driving force in my latest projects outside of any google BS.

    Those just push direct sales (poorly) for trash affiliates like Amazon. 99% worthless for climbing in the SERPS.

    Beginning of the year = Backlinks, SEO and Social Media
    Second half of the year = Social Signals, YouTube, Media Buys, New Niches emerging.
    Next year - Backlinks, SEO, Social Media, Media Buys, CPA, YouTube

    After SEO got in to black parts of universe for some time people shifted to other money making niches. But making money with other niches cannot be compared to how easy is SEO (build site, buy packages, hope for best). Thus people are coming back to get unique SEO services and invest money with reputable SEO providers.

    The hottest thing IMHO right now in IM is trying to find ways to become self-sufficient and not rely on Google. And the easiest way to do that right now seems to be to build an email list, treat it tenderly and build up social profiles that users use, well, actively.

    In the past I'd have never attempted these things. But now for my current projects I have in the pipeline, I'm focusing on building high quality content sites, and creating lists and social networks and keeping my users engaged. If your SEO traffic plummets, you can then stay alive off of your list until you get back up in Google again. And if you can find an ulterior way of getting traffic... even better!

    Lmao. "hope for the best". Is that what you SEO guys call ROI? lOL.

    Nowadays SEO is the worst investment anyone could make.

    Don't you see it coming full circle..? What's happening right now is the same as decades ago when
    there wasn't media like we use today..

    Stuff was being marketed on the... MARKET SQUARE. People where going to market square to
    learn new stuff, buy their groceries and so on..

    Now we've seen cold calling, sending sales letter, doing internet marketing.. And now facebook
    takes the exact same aspects as we did business decades ago but took it online..

    Your Facebook News-feed is your local MARKET SQUARE. Your Facebook page is your little tent
    where you state your stuff. Social traffic has the ability to speed up your brand's growth..

    See Facebook as a country. Their Pages as villages or cities and the likes as it's inhabitants.

    If you can't see the resemblance of what's happening now with Facebook and what happened
    decades ago, then don't worry. As many will disagree with me, and lots will agree. We will see
    what 2013 will bring

    You will soon find out the many of the more certified marketers, the people that actually got a
    degree in marketing, or trend watching will agree here. But there will always be a group that
    approaches this from another direction..

    Again...We will see! But Expertpeon.. Let me just end my view with a quote of yours...

    If you want automated thing - then yes. Do not categorize all SEO guys - I said what mainstream IMers are after right now - thats how Senuke became so mainstream as it is few buttons solution. ROI in SEO when you are doing proper work can be one of the highest in IM industry. No other thing can you give you white hat 1,000% ROI long term - but you wont achieve this with few pushes of buttons apparently.

    I've tried social signals now off and on for years, building tools for the task as well. I have actually very good evidence that Google cannot even index links through retweets or FB shares, as their crawler seems to be completely unable to follow the information.

    That alone is sufficient to say signals do nothing, but beyond that, I have never seen any benefit to them either.

    I've started taking it like Google doesn't even exist. Most of my strategies are based on driving direct traffic or placing a link where i can get the most out of it keeping Google aside. Social is a good thing for sure but it requires a lot of time and dedication to emerge socially. However, it still helps to build relationships and ultimately relationships help to get links.

    Beginning of the year = Backlinks, SEO and Social Media
    Second half of the year = Social Signals, YouTube, Media Buys, New Niches emerging.
    Next year - Backlinks, SEO, Social Media, Media Buys, CPA, YouTube

    Well, one thing is for sure. Social media will never run out of hypes. Google even purchased Youtube so one thing is for sure that social media platforms will definitely won't slow down compared to other IM's claims.

    Email marketing still promises high ROI if done properly. Therefore if you are doing other things like SEO, Social Media Marketing etc don't stop building your list, keep it going email marketing promises approach direct to the target audience.

    FaceBook gets the most traffic between 8-5 during the week. Bored people at work. It is not going anywhere.
