I have a simple marketing question, especially to webmasters who rely on user-generated content like forums, blogs, etc.
Considering the fact that the big corporate sites like Facebook or Twitter take away your users (and consequently your profit), why are so many of webmasters promote the big websites' brand and link to them?
I'm just trying to find a similar scenario in the off-line world where a small local store would advertise and even provide a free shuttle bus of their own customers/visitors to the nearby Walmart or Best Buy. Has anyone ever seen such a marketing 'strategy' in the off-line world?
