I have seen some courses teach web 2.0 marketing, but how can I have so much time to join and update many sites and do it in correct way?
These courses all offer tons of tips, strategies, but who can really apply those strategies?
A general rule of thumb - 1 hour per day per social network.
If you have an hour a day to spend networking, go with one network. Two hours ? two networks etc. It's worked well for me though I don't have more than 2 hours a day to spare (they are usually hours I steal from sleeping).
Generate inbound links...meet people who want to make money.
How about we go off the beaten path a bit...
Believe it or not, I've met more people at the local level who want to make money in a year than I have in five years of being online. Well, I may be exaggerating a bit but you get the picture. Opportunity abounds at the local level and that is where "Social Networking" is happening. Here are a few places that stick out like a sore thumb as they say and, in no particular order...
Local Networking Groups, Gym, Grocery Store, School Events (if you're a parent), Chamber of Commerce membership and participation, Charitable Groups (typically a few CEOs on the Board), and the list goes on and on.
Start small, then spread your wings a little. That's the way I'd approach it. This whole SMO thing is only for a select group of people and industries. You don't join a social networking site in hopes of "generating inbound links" and meeting people who want to make money, not as the primary focus anyway. Well, there might be a few that are specific to your requests but I don't think you're going to get rich overnight. Or, in the next ten years for that matter. ;)
Are you prepared to invest about 12-18 months of your time, day in and day out, to become established in whatever "Social Campaign" you are about to embark on? Unless of course you've got something that is going to totally rock our world then of course you can trim the time frames a bit.
So, what do you really want to do? Or be?
First, I want to create and manage two or more content sites. Generate lists, and make money from affiliate programs.
Time and money which we'll assume you've got some. :)
Second, I want to make money from online MLM program.
Ah, the ole' MLM thingamajig. You would be best served to find those affiliate forums that are directly associated with the products/services you may be selling. Is MLM still a viable income stream these days? I mean, I would think you need to be a "major player" to do well in that area, yes? No? Either way, I see a lot of planning, establishing affiliations, etc. Pretty much 18 hour days for the next year or so, are you ready? ;)
