To all the promotional marketers and bloggers out there this is for you. WebBizIdeas has been marketing websites that sell products for over 8 years now. During this time we’ve found a very effective means of increasing sales and search engine rankings simultaneously, PRODUCT GIVEAWAYS. Since bloggers control a large portion on content found online we started giving products to bloggers to review for FREE. These bloggers wrote HONEST reviews and posted them online for their readers. Some of the reviews were good and some bad, but we made sure they wrote them and posted something to link back to the website we were promoting. The result was a large number of back links, higher search engine rankings, and more products sold.
All the bloggers needed to disclose they were reviewing the product in exchange for a free product but that didn’t detour potential customers. They appreciated the honesty and bought more products because more creditability in the company was created. Obviously this was a win win situation, the bloggers got free stuff and the promoters sold more products.
The major downfall to all of this was the management side of things. It was extremely time consuming to monitor all the bloggers, make sure they wrote the review, make sure the product was shipped, and make sure the bloggers were keeping everything legal.
This management dilemma is what brings us here today. We are in the process of making a new piece of software to manage all of this. Users will be able to go from 40 hours/month of management time to 2 hours/month of management time. The software is called Tomoson.com and we are looking to launch in the next 4-8 weeks.
