Default Spamming Without Spamming To Get Sales

Hi all,

When you take a quick look at some of the forums or FB groups, you can quickly see the site is being flooded with spammers, who call themselves marketers. But there is a difference between spamming and marketing.

It's called: Getting sales.

While spammers hope for a quick buck, marketers know that the trust is far more important. So, if you don't wanna get banned by most forums out there, don't just start a useless topic like "Where to buy cheap viaghra" and self-answer it. People aren't that stupid. Instead, offer valuable tips and over time, people would buy your stuff, based solely on trust.

You can do it manually, or you can go with automated services like Prospectera(dotcom) or Promobrite(dotcom) and get leads with a single click. But no matter what your offer is, it won't convert, if you scream "Buy now!"

So, whatever your way of doing marketing is, do it right. Or don't do it at all.

Ok, now it's your turn. What do you think about it and how do you promote your stuff online? Pls share!

I manually did my emailing campaign. I did not use any automated programs whatsoever. The trouble I had was that one client supposedly reported my ip to spam banning sites. I got banned and i could not visit specific sites.

I was able to lift the ban a day after. I did not use any proxy whatsoever, which I think I should have.

Trust is a major factor in successful sales and marketing. You have to earn your customers' trusts and that doesn't come easy. It's also a good idea to register to forum sites where other users can benefit from your product/services, including your knowledge.
