Social bookmarking for business is a remarkably simple way to organize, in one common location, all of the most useful content across the web that is of interest to you and your business. With so much information available on the web, users found it especially difficult to sort and keep data that was relevant to their own individual interests. That is, until social bookmarking, and how wonderful it is that all your individual bookmarks can be transferred between different locations, computers, and mobile devices as well. Having your company listed on a social bookmarking site can definitely drive quality traffic to your site. If a user reaches your site from one of the popular social bookmarking sites on the net today they typically got to your site because your business web site came up in a search of topics they were interested in.
By spreading your business content and informative data, which should absolutely include varied offers for your company products and services, through the use of social bookmarking you afford your business the exposure and visibility needed in order to make your company presence known and to grow your business. By having your business featured on one of the bookmarking sites, many times will result in other users tagging your site on other bookmarking sites as well, which is beneficial to your web site promotion.
Such popular social bookmarking sites as Delicious, Digg, Mixx, Technorati, Reddit, Google Bookmarks, and yes, even Twitter and Facebook to a degree, allow business owners to save all their bookmarks online and share them with other people. In addition, they allow you to see what other people are bookmarking, familiarizing you with the most popular bookmarks being saved by users. This will also allow you to connect with business leaders in your niche and sharing their content as well as your own, which is an ideal promotional tool for your website as well.
Using social bookmarking for business provides you the opportunity to present your company as an authentic authority in your niche. Talking about your products and services and what your company offers, as well as how your company can help other users, is a critical strategy for growing your business. Be enthusiastic and passionate when presenting your content since these very traits provide both confidence and trust to potential customers. Proving to users that you are seriously good at what you do and that you have a genuine concern for helping them, will deliver a message of authenticity to users which will keep them from looking elsewhere for that which they are interested in.
Encouraging other users to bookmark from your website offers your business many benefits. Placing social bookmarking tabs on your website not only increases traffic to your site, but will also make it incredibly easy for readers to save your content and turn around and share it, which ultimately allows other users to find the content as well. Through the use of these social bookmarking buttons you will also notice that the traffic you do receive is very targeted and is quite engaged in your web site content. So, as you can see, the benefits are many, and certainly the entire concept of social bookmarking for business is a great addition to your strategy for promoting your web site, products, and services.

You’ve gone to all the work of creating posts for your blog and Facebook, but they never seem to really go anywhere, just sitting there without any comments, likes or shares. A VERY frustrating place to be considering how hard you worked on those posts! Hours of thought and preparation go into each of your posts, deciding how to serve your customers and clients in the best way possible. It can be so heartbreaking when you post them, sit back and wait BUT nothing happens. I remember being reduced to tears in the beginning before I understood what it took to REALLY get the post out there.
Social bookmarking is a way to make that happen!
What exactly is Social Bookmarking you might ask? Wikipedia tell us;
A social bookmarking service is a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents. Many online bookmark management services have launched since 1996; Delicious, founded in 2003, popularized the terms “social bookmarking” and “tagging”. Tagging is a significant feature of social bookmarking systems, enabling users to organize their bookmarks in flexible ways and develop shared vocabularies known as folksonomies.
If you’re like 1,000’s of other you have taken a look at some of these sites and almost immediately went into overwhelm. It happens to all of us at some point. The easiest way to decide which sites are best for your business is an extremely good understanding of your ideal customer and/or client. With that information in hand you can take a look at these top 15 sites recommended here and decide which ones suit your needs the best.
Ask the following questions;
- Does the site have lots and lots of traffic?
- Are the people who are already there representative of my ideal client or customer
- Is my niche represented?
You can check out each site on Alexa to uncover where they fit in will all the other sites on the internet. When you go to each site check out what’s already been posted, the categories and or topics. The sites all have the “Search” function to make that easier for you.
Add your content to the mix on each of the sites you select, be sure that your content is relevant with quality high enough to attract attention. Remember to invest time in good titles as that is what will catch people’s attention. You want people to “bookmark” your content, just like they would have bookmarked a place in a book.
One of the sure fire ways of have a post go viral is getting the post in front of all of the right people. With all of the social bookmarking sites available today this has become a lot easier. However, it is a lot of work. You will have to maintain minimal presence on each site and the worst thing you can do is only post your own content. Remember, it’s social! Share content from others, be selective, pick the content you believe your audience would enjoy. Provide value and become that trusted source, in the long run it is well worth the effort.
Next week my post will be about some of the tools you can use to make your Social Bookmarking even easier.

Advertising on Facebook is not only an amazing and popular tool, but most assuredly a very powerful tool that can afford you the luxury of successfully introducing, developing, and growing your new business. A tool that has such a visible presence today, there isn’t a business out there that has not become dependent upon the Facebook ad. However, in order for your Facebook ads to work for the benefit of your business, you have to begin by recognizing and choosing the overall objectives you wish to achieve with your Facebook ads.
Since your advertising objective is much like a call to action in that it represents what you want viewers to do when they see your ads, be very detailed and precise about the advertising objectives you choose. For instance, are you looking to get more people to visit your website, are you wanting to boost your posts, or perhaps you are looking to increase the number of your page likes so as to connect with more people and businesses that are of interest to you. Further to these, are you seeking to create offers for products or services that customers can redeem in your store, are you trying to increase the number of people who view a video, or even increase attendance at a specific event you are hosting. Whatever your chosen objective is, be certain you have defined the ultimate outcome you are in search of through the use of Facebook ads.
The most important stage of your Facebook ad campaign is the preliminary stage whereby you determine your advertising goal and match it to the appropriate advertising objective. In order to accomplish this very important step, you must ask yourself a couple of simple questions – what is it you want to ultimately accomplish with your ad, and what do you feel would be an ideal outcome? These answers can then be matched up against the various advertising objectives available until you hit the jackpot, and find the one that works best for your business.
In creating and utilizing Facebook ads it is important to have a complete comprehension of the definition of “clicks” and “website clicks.” Understanding the difference will afford you one of the tools you will need to successfully determine the perfect advertising objective for your business, and get you started on your Facebook ad campaign. The difference is quite simple. “Website clicks” occur when someone clicks on your ad and finds themselves directed to a site off Facebook, typically your web site, where “clicks” are made up of both website clicks as well as any and all clicks on any other parts of your ad (i.e. your Page name).
Facebook ads are definitely effective and efficient. Once you have determined exactly what it is you want your ad to accomplish, and have matched it to the proper advertising objective, you are well on your way to creating, developing, and implementing a successful Facebook ad campaign. What are you waiting for? Fire up your business today with creative Facebook ads!
