Josh ToddJosh Todd has racked up experience as both an affiliate and affiliate manager, with his pet topics being PPC (pay-per-click) and PPV (pay-per-view) forms of traffic generation.

Will Your Social Marketing Efforts Ripen And Product Fruit?

Social marketing has quite an organic flavor to it and the garden analogy applies well.

If tended well, your social marketing efforts can take off virally and yield a bountiful harvest with social goodwill being generated, credibility being established and the positive buzz grows at a quantum rate – everything having to do with having provided value to the community and becoming a key member of the community.

I have been thinking of link exchanges. I’m hearing different things about them. Do they work?


In my opinion many marketers are overly obsessed with traffic.

Traffic won’t solve your worries if your site has a ‘leaky’ design (with multiple exit links for visitors), doesn’t have effective channels for monetization or list building, or doesn’t have sticky content to get visitors to keep coming back.

That’s where alliances are handy.

A link exchange is where two websites or blogs have (more…)
