Anyone selling products online faces the challenge of getting the word out. To harness the power of social networking we use the Social Marketing plugin for easy sharing of our home based business e-book to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.
More than just a social bookmarking tool, this powerful plugin allows us to easily expose value added content to anyone who shares the link to any post or page. Specifically, we created a coupon code for $5.00 off Income Anywhere! that anyone can access simply by sharing the link to the post with information about the book.
Here’s an example of Social Marketing in action:
$5.00 Off Income Anywhere E-book!Share this link to reveal your coupon for $5.00 off our Income Anywhere e-book! That's only $4.95 for this comprehensive guide filled with tips for supplementing or replacing your income while working from home.
The advertisement above is automatically generated when inserting a quicktag into a post using the plugin’s “Insert Social Ad” button. Click the Share Now button to see how it works. After sharing the link, users are presented with a link and coupon code that can be applied to save $5.00 off our e-book, Income Anywhere!
But this method could be used to share any value added content. Provide a password to protected content, direct readers to a secret video, give them a free download, or combine this with the Scheduled Content plugin to create a limited time offer. With a Social Marketing ad on your blog post, page or product, your readers spread the word for you!
Aside from reaching potentially millions of customers with your offer, the best thing about this plugin is its amazing simplicity. After activating the plugin there are just a few steps to start making your product go viral.
- Select one of the default display settings or use your own custom CSS.
- Create your ad with a title, promotional copy, URL to share and button text.
- Easily insert your ad into any post or page with the new button in your content editor.
It’s that simple, but you can do so much more…
