Hello all,

I have been reading many posts on marketing on Facebook twitter etc,

i just wanted to give my thoughts on the matter.

I really think people need to think outside of the box when marketing why do people only go for the BIG 5 social networks?

Lets face it if you add more then a few people on facebook a day then BAM your banned same with most of the other big networks and sending more then 200 PM's ends the same way!

There are 1000's of smaller networks out there 200k-2m members etc,
all of which don't give a hoot if you add every member on site,

so bam a quick Bot and there you go 24 hours latter you have 50k friends let alone the amount of profiles etc you can post on!

And lets also remeber that most of the guys on these smaller networks are members of the big sites such as facebook so you get the facebook members one-way or another!

:D

true, but a site with 2 mil members is still going to have some controls

Hi,

Yes thats it and also as i said most of the guys on the small networks are on facebook so in effect you are getting the message to them one way or another. i hit a small network the other day 200k members that takes time on facebook! on the small network a couple of hours BAM! ;)

That's not really thinking outside the box. these are tactics used for some time. social Media changes everyday.

You need something out of the ballpark, bot out of the box.

The main focus on FB is precisely because there are lots of people doing it - so you can pick up tips from them.

Getting members/fans isn't the big issue.

Working out how best to monetize them is.

I'd far prefer to have 10% of 100 rabid fans, than 0.00001% of a massive fanbase that had very little buying power and was difficult to presell to.

can someone name out a few smaller networks like that?

It is pretty much common sense finding new places to promote.
Search google for 'Social networks' or 'top social networks','list of social networks' etc....
It is that easy.
There are many lists on there,some lists even show how many approximate members each site has.
Just gotta do some looking around and testing,until you find something that works for you.
I would post some more on here to give ideas,*however...I cannot post links/URLs yet.
Best to find them yourself though and if you find something that works good for you,keep it on the down-low and make the best of it.

Good luck to you.

There are social networks that cater to specific interests. (Read: targeted.) Matter of fact, you're looking at one right now. Personally, I'd concentrate on a site with 100k members that all have a common interest than the billions of random people who use Facebook.

Nothing new, of course. Just my $.02.

People - listen close - NEVER directly market to a FB page or group within the first 3 months. All you want to be doing is conversing, getting to know people and being a normal person talking about the thing in which you both share a passion for (whatever the fan page niche be).

The idea is to build a list from FB fan page by giving away a free, high quality report related to the niche. And all you are asking for each time you give away free shit is an email address. On the download page for the free report, put a horizontal banner below the download link of a related affiliate product. Since they've already opted in, they are more likely to click on a related offer.

Then you just pound them with quality via the email list - whether it's a newsletter etc... free products with a premium/cpa/recurring product on the back end. market to your list or targeted buyers and you're set.

Don't ever sell directly on the fan page... build your list and market to them.

That's my two cents and what's always worked for me.
