All good points, but not necessarily formulas for success. I have a web presence everywhere. I’ve done 95% of what you’ve listed above. Google me and you’ll find me listed from page 1-15, Right now my book The Price of Innocence in paperback languishes at the 1,588,000 rank mark on Amazon in the US. What do you do when you’ve done it all and then some? I’m beginning to think some of it is just plain dumb luck. I suppose if I made my 19th century Parisian prostitute into a vampire I would sell more. But I’ve also learned not all of the above guarantees sales, neither does your name plastered everywhere on the net. Not quite sure what makes it happen, but I’ll walk the road and keep at it.
It’s true, you can do everything right and still nothing happens. Recently, found out about UpHype via a Twitter follow and it might be able to help out a bit. There you can get some social media help (and other things) for dirt cheap. This one intrigues me a lot – I will tweet Your Website, Hype or Service To my 121,450 Twitter Followers FIVE times for $8:
You’ll get minimum 400+ visitors to your website/landing page or I will tweet again five times FOR FREE (average from last 10 is 987 visits) . Message sent to OVER 121,450 english speaking followers across my 43 different niches/accounts within 24 hrs. YOU must devise your message. I will send instructions tips/after you order. VERY IMPORTANT:I WILL NOT BE SENDING OUT ANY MORE TWEETS UNTIL 31st JULY but you can reserve your place (only 100 orders/mth MAX)
I will tweet about your product or service to over 20k followers 5 times a day for 8 weeks. You will have your own control panel where you can edit your message and have full access to your stats 24/7. I have processed over 300 sales on other sites.
These things might lead to nothing, but if you’ve hit a wall, it could be helpful. Most people probably have under 1000 Twitter followers, so this will reach a lot more people. Of course, it doesn’t mention what niche these followers are, but for 8 bucks, it’s worth a shot.
One thing I would stay away from: I will show you around the Dallas/Fort Worth area for $16.
Yeesh, talk about something that’s open for corruption, even danger. I’d recommend the site taking these sorts of offers down because the possible legal ramifications and bad press are immense.
If you’ve got a lot of Twitter followers, or something else, it’s also a potential way to make some money. The first listing is doing 100 a month at $8 each – a nice amount of money every month for not that much work.
