Did you happen to notice in part two, how strategic cross promotions, not only stretch your (all ready strained) marketing dollars, but the strategy also helps to not only (in some cases) dramatically increase your on or offline credibility, but helps establish, and in some cases cement your expertise in the eyes of your specific target audience as well!
And in a far more meaningful way, (to both you and your particular audience),than any outrageously expensive traditional mass advertising/promotional strategies could ever hope, to come close to doing! Have you noticed that too?
Hopefully you have.Part three of this ongoing series, is going to (hopefully) demonstrate to you, even more practical real life examples, of “how” effective, cross promotions, not only stretch your advertising/marketing dollars, but the long term residual effects, are far more valuable to you, and or your major competitors,than simply paying for your exposure through the traditional advertising mediums!
What Profit Seeking Small Business Owner And Or Service Provider Could Say No To 250% Better Results From Strategic Cross Promotion?
Just last week, (my expert) traffic generation coach, (the one and only) Janice Wald, of mostly blogging fame.com, published an excellent blog post, on “how” strategically using youtube, makes you and I better bloggers.
(Important note: Janice, just in case you don’t know, she’s an expert at consistently generating highly targeted traffic, to your WordPress website and or blog, and she uses a variety of proven, low cost methods to do so!
Which means entrepreneur, (if you’re at all serious), about learning her proven traffic generating secrets, so you too can consistently generate you share of highly targeted traffic, to your particular site(s), then you definitely need to check her blog out asap!)
Case in point, in this recent blog post she published, on “how” the strategic use of youtube, makes us better, more successful bloggers, she linked to my blog several times!In other words, she’s strategically cross promoting with me, while I in turn am strategically cross promoting her in this post.
Now as you also recall in part one of this series, WordPress website building expert, Jupiter Jim of JupiterJim.club fame, he and I also strategically cross promote each other!Hopefully, you’re starting to appreciate “how” this incredibly powerful, and incredibly simple marketing strategy, simultaneously helps dramatically increase your visibility, all over the web!
That’s just two, (incredibly simple) real world online examples!But it works equally as well offline too!
Strategic Cross Promotions Are Potential Game Changers!
Offline, (it what’s) more affectionately referred to as the “real world.” A cross strategic partner of mine, he would take my flyers, for my 160 page “how to” text and insert them inside his newsletter, that targeted entrepreneurs, looking to earn additional money, by possibly becoming a 100% commissioned only bird dog/referral agent, for a offer of mine.
And by the same token, I in turn, (periodically) used to enthusiastically insert one of his best market tested offers he had, looking for private investors, that were a little more comfortable, taking more risk, for the opportunity to earn higher yields, in some slightly riskier investments.
And he routinely paid hi bird dogs such as myself, 3% of the initial gross amount of capital they invested. So every now and again, I would receive checks, for various amounts, such as $138 dollars or $625 dollars etc!
Imagine that, (basically) found money, simply because you inserted a trusted source’s best market tested offer, inside your outgoing mail, to your best paying customers and or database subscribers! Entrepreneur, can you freaking believe it?
(Take a look at these two recent screen shot examples, of Janice cross promoting yours truly!)
Here’s the other example, which appeared in the same post!
Here’s the overall (main) point ladies & gentlemen, as you (and or) your major competitors, get more and more, extremely viable cross promotions in place, you will dramatically raise your visibility on the web, without having to use your extremely limited cash resources to do so!
And you’ll still whined up in front of specific target market!Can you find a loser in such a proven arrangement? Neither can I!Now as is customary during this part of our show.
