Social bookmarking and social media marketing has worked well for me and has been a staple of my online marketing for the past few years. Most recently though, my life became immensely easier and my bookmarking much more effective. If you’ve not yet read The Four Hour Work Week, put it on your list. It’s an impressive book and a very worthwhile mind-set, concerned with prioritizing how you spend your time and what parts of your work can be outsourced.
To that end, last week I began using a system called Synnd. I rarely jump on much that comes my way online anymore, but this caught my eye due to the integrity of the person making the recommendation and the fact that Synnd claimed to be essentially able to outsource my social media marketing (which includes to a great degree, social bookmarking).
For $1 I was able to try it for 7 days. Beware..it took a full dedicated day to understand it and set it up. After 7 days I’m more than happy to give them the monthly subscription fee. Within four days I was able to end up on the first page of Google (sometimes in multiple positions) for two different keyword phrases. Both articles had been living somewhere so far back in Google that I could not find them. For one of my keywords, in 24 hours I was on page two, out of 45 MILLION other listing for that keyword phrase.
Synnd is all about getting you on the first page of Google, using predominantly a method of social bookmarking that is automated, yet still personal. Once you’re there, good content will easily take over and traffic will be coming your way.
