    Hello BlackHatWorld,
    I have started a social media promotion website (selling real facebook likes, real twitter followers and high-retention youtube views).

    So far it has been going good, the orders have been increasing weekly, I already have a handful of happy customers, the problem is that it seems to be hard to get happy customers to share my website (due to not being a niche that appeals the masses) and thus, I am having a bit of trouble promoting my services.

    What I tried so far was:
    • Youtube. (I have 2 videos ranked for the 2 most important keywords on the niche, but there doesn't seem to be many searches on youtube about the topic).
    • SEO. (The niche is very competitive, the main keywords have 20.000 searches and the competition has 1k-3k+ domains linking to their websites, it is going to take some time).
    • Buying Ads. (I got very low CTR on my ads, maybe it was my fault tough, the ads where beautiful but their text wasn't very high converting, plus the websites where the ads are located wheren't the best options).
    • Affiliate/Reseller Program. (I have 15+ affiliates but they don't seem to be bringing any sales).

    I am looking for people to help me find other possible ways to promote my website, all my customers so far where very happy with the services, it is a shame I am not bringing in enough visitors to increase my sales.

    I've had a fair amount of success selling Twitter followers and the advice I'd give to you is:

    Don't waste your time trying to promote your services and convincing people to buy it.

    You'll spend a lot of time and money to find out that people simply don't want to be marketed/convinced/persuaded into buying social media services.

    Instead you need to focus on being found by those who have already made the decision to buy social media services.

    This will allow you to spend more time tweaking your conversion rate and improving on your service as well as being able to provide a good customer service.

    Instead spending hours promoting your service, invest into being found by your potential customers.

    Focus on SEO for the next few months and you'll soon reap the rewards!

    I get an absolute ton of customers through word of mouth and this is purely down to me providing an excellent customer service.

    I know it's common sense but if you go above and beyond for your customers they'll always come back to you in a profitable way.

    Make contact with social media management companies and try and secure some kind of partnership as this has proved quite successful for myself.

    If you can provide real followers/likes Ect then you won't find it hard to convince the social media management companies.

    Email marketing is also something that shouldn't be ignored.

    Email your current customers with discounts or rewards for sharing Ect and then find a away of gaining subscribers through your site.

    For example I gain subscribers by giving away free followers each month to a hand full of people who are subscribed.

    Out of those who get their free followers on average 70% come back to purchase.

    I think it works well because it's a try before you buy so if you had the option to try before you buy on your site then conversions would increase for sure.

    So definitely never stop working on your conversion rate, get some smart email marketing on the go, focus and invest heavily into SEO, secure a few partnerships and treat your customers like royalty! :)

    I think I've covered most of the areas that have brought me success in this niche but if I remember anything else I'll update!

    Hope this helps you!

    Awesome reply.
    I already have a couple of subscribers and it is growing a nice amount weekly.

    In terms of SEO, I am unsure if I will be able to rank as the keywords are very competitive and I am scared to start spamming links, but from what I have seen, competitors have 2-6 month old websites with 2k-3k domains linking in.
    I have ranked many websites before but nothing as competitive.

    You say you have success selling Twitter Followers, are you ranked for "buy twitter followers"? How much traffic do you get daily?

    I am curious to know if social media can be an effective way to promote these services. I know it is essencial to promote blogs and affiliate programs but is it good to promote marketing services?

    Yeah the competition is high but if you dig deep into the link profiles of the top spots they mostly have spammy links so if you can attain very high quality links you will for sure out rank those with 2-3k linking domains.

    I only have a few hundred linking domains yet I out rank those with thousands, purely because my link profile is of very high quality.

    Yeah I rank quite well for profitable keywords such as "buy twitter followers" Ect.

    I currently get 200-300 visitors a day (growing still) and this was attained after 2 and a half months of SEO.

    I haven't ventured into promoting via social media yet and I doubt I will to be honest. I'm sure they're people killing it on Twitter Ect but I can't see much potential for me at least.

    All the best!
