    In the light of recent events. I would like to say a big thank you to BHW. Once again it is why I have made BHW my family.

    Now to begin this can garter some instant traffic from the jump once you become an established networker at these communities. It has taken me a couple months to build up some of these accounts. To be honest it was worth it.

    My favorite is twitter. Now everyone hates twitter but there is a secret to be successful on twitter. Gather your list. Look for big names. Take for instance if everyone is following a successful internet marketer. DO NOT follow the internet marketer follow who is following him. These people want to know about internet marketing evidently. You can find the big names pretty easy.

    Now for the hard part tweet free stuff. Stuff that is not going to give you any money. Do not monetize. Give helpful totally free information. This is what has worked for me. You can try monetizing the sites but again that is totally up to you.

    Here is why not to monetize at first. You want to gain a reader base have them coming back to your blog again and again. Now if you monotize the blog chances are they will think you are all about the money. True but you do not want to give that appearance. You want them to recommend you to there followers and your blog to there followers so you want to give them great info and look like mr.average joe.

    After you build up a fair amount of followers. You can take a domain *unmonotized* Tweet it and ask people to retweet it on your behalf. You would be surprised at the amount of people that will do this for you. Just say please RT I want to help people earn money visit my blog *url here* No ads just be real with them.

    Now if it is great unique info and you are active on your blog people will stay and come back to your blog. Again and again.

    I am new to twitter I have been building my list for about 2 months. For 2 months straight I have been building my list at twitter. Everyday following the max amount of people I can and then deleting those who are not following me back.

    Today I got screwed over by a CPA company. I immediately set up a blog. and went to town asking for RT's to help spread the word about the evil giant who scammed me.

    I had about 30 people retweet on my behalf. I had 1k visitors before I took down the site. Why did i take down the site? I emailed the company and told them just how popular that site was getting. With shots and everything else. Lovely enough they called me. They claimed it was something to do with an advertiser but they will make sure i get paid :)

    So honestly I did not monetize the site but I still will get paid because of it.

    Now I know there are people on DIGG which is my next hurtle who can get a site 100 times that many people within the same time frame. I have not experimented with digg yet but will shortly. I am assuming it is the same. I use digg to bookmark just for the backlinks but I know the potential is there for a whole lot more.

    Same goes with all the social bookmarks like reddit , Stumble, digg there are more . ANYWHERE you have a community and you are KNOWN in that community your chances are pretty good that you can easily drive insane amounts of traffic within that community.

    Take it for what it is worth. I just experimented with this today using my twitter followers and I can say that everything here that i personally experimented with to the best of my knowledge is true. I am not sure how digg , reddit or stumble works just making an assumption. If my assumption is wrong please correct me. As for twitter yes it does work and I can vouch that it is true to the word!

    congrats on this.

    As if i like it.

    I'm loving it.
    I did this earlier with an unfriendly network of mine, except i just had organic se traffic instead of stuff like twitter and digg.

    Never really got into these sites.

    Thanks. They talk all the time how someone needs to build a relationship with there list. These communities are actually one big list.

    If you look at it that way would you sling offers at your list like mad? Hell no not if you want them to stay subscribed. You want to give them stuff of value so they ENJOY reading your emails. Right?

    Exactly. The concept about building a relationship is pretty much universal.
    This is both where my success and failure comes up from (indirectly).

    Let's take berrycorps method:

    What I do is put myself in the job applicant's situation and write down everything i would do and look for.
    then I make sure that i'm including all of that.

    sorry if i'm not making myself very clear.
    long night.

    Yeah but few people in marketing fail to realize just how powerful this concept is. Hence is why they fail.

    This apply to everything else. You set up a new site, you pretend that your site is not for money, but for information sharing. This way it is easier to get linked by others, and you get better chance of success when asking for link exchange.

    Once you get enough link and rank, you can monetize it. Be charge for advertise, adsense, or sell the site.

    Exactly traffic is SOOO much easier when you appear to be doing it for the love of information rather then the love of money.

    *Great summary by the way*

    Exactly. There are soo many nice people in the world who make websites for the greater being of people. Money is just ehhh... a by product.

    :D Got to be smarter than the average bear. That might have been why I got so many visitors though. Not sure if it was on other subjects if it would have been as popular.

    I have heard of diggers being able to do the exact same thing though. The key is to build up an account at the social network first. Once you do that it should be gravy.

    I estimate the time to build up an account on most social networks is about one month or so.I may be wrong it might take alot less time on some networks. However that is how long I have been tinkering with twitter. I just got serious about it here of lately though.

    Then after the build up process you should be able to get HORDES of visitors basically over night.

    That is why I recommend not monetizing the site at first to generate a reader base. Then monetize the site.
