Explode Your Squidoo Traffic with Social Marketing

There is a lot of discussion lately about social marketing
prompted in part by the work of

Many writers are now asserting that Squidoo should
be an integral part of your internet marketing strategy.

My considered view is that Squidoo should be an essential
element in your marketing mix. I see it now as a marketing
ring - a series of linked elements : Squidoo-articles-blog-
website-social (book) marketing sites. This results in a
certain synergy that no one element can achieve by itself.
The net effect is multi-directional, traffic flows.

Stompernet (Don Crowther) put out a landmark video and
report recently which is showing the massive impact
of social marketing. Rosalind Gardner, Super Affiliate,
responded by immediately saying that she has to rethink her
stance on social marketing sites like Facebook, etc and
give them more importance.

Here's the video:

You can access the related pdf report by entering your
name and email on the video page.

Unwittingly, Don Crowther has highlighted my own dominance
of the keyword, "Squidoo Marketing Strategies" in the video
(around the 16th minute). At the time of the video, 8 of the
top ten results were linked to my sites - my ebook sales page,
my lenses, my blog, my articles or technorati tags.

We have to start thinking in terms of creating marketing
webs, rings or circles.

We are now in the era of "collaborative marketing",
"permission marketing" & "engagement marketing".
Our marketing strategies need to reflect
the "inter-linking" and "interactivity"
and "communal"
nature of this emerging era.

One-out strategies are a thing of the past!

I totally agree with you that Squidoo is an effective traffic-driver. It has helped me greatly. The best thing is that the traffic is targetted. :-) Thanks for reinforcing my concepts.
