It is indeed no accident that you're here reading this =)
Do you wish to make money by just passing around or sharing an eBook, a Report or a QuickStart and make money virally after doing a reasonable amount of work? Now, an eBook like that allows you to brand it with your own referral links and pass it on to people who want to make money online the viral way too. Some have actually asked me why not start a forum or something instead so that people can feel more support …
Well, it can be done, but it's basically going to require a lot more work and resources like live moderators, and honestly many people like myself find forums a waste of time after some time. So, why go the forum way when you can go the viral way and be able to spend more quality time with the people who really matter to you?
I honestly would not want to face my computer screen all day long and there before strive to save you some time and energy the way I would have it myself = )ides, most business programs do have their own members' forum, conferences and the like . So, there's really no need for unnecessary duplication.
Doing forum marketing usually makes a marketer (especially a newbie marketer) feel like a fake or even a hypocrite, and if you're not doing it right, sending out the wrong signals, it can then get quite counterproductive, tiring, draining, discouraging and even damaging. I'm not asking you to shun this form of marketing because it does work very well for certain people due to their personality type and interpersonal skills, but just letting you become aware that the majority of the people online are getting now with this form of marketing.
I prefer to use viral marketing because it's simple, straightforward, and it rewards those who work hard even for just a short initial period of time. It's not difficult for the majority and you need not be pushy. Just give away your branded copy, and since most people will find it very easy to do the same, the music carries on!
If you can just get 5 people to do the same, you're on the roll! Do the same what?
Download the viral eBook or tool, Read it and then Take Action …
Step 1. Join the Programs to Get Your Own Referral Links.
Step 2. Brand it with Your Own Referral Links.
Step 3. Give Away Your Branded Copy for Others to Do Likewise. (Pass it on like a Virus!)
If you can pass on a simple greeting, a joke, a YouTube video or a photo of yours … you can definitely pass on a viral money-maker! Moreover, it is easy to simply post an ad on online classifieds sites. In fact, as long as you're just focused on distributing your viral eBook or tool, finding ways to do so is actually an easy task!
Marketing using YouTube and the like would also be a form of viral marketing, and it's gaining popularity because people usually act faster after watching a video. Call it the impulsive attention defect generation if you like, but as long as it works, you'll see marketers jumping on the band wagon.
To me, going viral is the smarter way, but posting on forums would prove to be very fruitful in terms of passive income too if it's done the right way, and you may experience viral effects too if you choose the right forums to post in. Some forums are more viral and responsive and as long as your target buyers are there, you'll have your business going =)
