Facebook Marketing

By Mohnish On December 29, 2009 44 Comments

I have never blogged about Facebook Marketing before, however, after some research and reading, here is what I have for you. Facebook currently has over 350+ million users and over 70% are active on the popular social network. Facebook connects users from all over the world under one single domain, which is why it becomes a great platform for marketeers. I am sitting here in India, but I can still connect to users in the US or in Europe via Facebook.

How can Facebook help marketeers?
Facebook provides a great platform to market your product for free — Fan pages. A fan page is a page created by a user (usually the marketeer) to promote his product. The marketeer then uses this page to connect to more people all over the world and displays his product/services to interested users.  Normal users like you and me become a fan of the product/service if we’re interested in it. But to make your page visible to normal users the marketeer has to use another Facebook platform known as — Facebook Advertising.

Why use Facebook Ads?
Facebook ads is a great way to reach your target audience. Your target audience might be college students, singles, men, people between the age of 25-35 etc. Facebook ads make  it easier for you to get more customers/fans towards your services/products. Setting up an advertiser account with Facebook  is easy, just sign up for a regular Facebook account and then visit their advertising page. Facebook’s advertising program converts way better than any other advertising program because it allows you to select the age, gender, occupation etc of the target audience.

What’s next?
Many marketeers try to gain more fans (by black hat/spam or legit advertising methods), but it always doesn’t guarantee you better results. A good marketeer would always try to keep users engaged by holding contests, asking questions or posting stuff which interests users (quotes, offers, images, videos, news etc). User interaction is always needed on a fan page or it won’t convert well.
Having a large number of fans doesn’t guarantee sales or conversion. The best is to allow your fan page to grow on it’s own while you keep posting content on your fan page on regular basis.

Tip: Run your campaigns on international holidays, for example Christmas. Facebook was the most visited website on 25th December 2009. Conversion is higher on holidays (according to my research).



Make Money With Twitter

By Mohnish On April 2, 2009 14 Comments

First, Apologises for not blogging frequently and not getting back to your comments. Second, Thank you very much for leaving your comments on Sensonize.com and emailing me with your wonderful reponses.

Third and the most important, the reason I am writing this post:

How To Make Money With Twitter

Many people disagree with me when I say that it is possible to make money with twitter. They tell me that if Twitter can’t make any money, how will we make money? I was not surprised with their thinking, in fact I was amused on seeing people think that way.

How?
It is extremely simple. You cane either find advertisers via your website

OR

magpie

Magpie makes it easy
Magpie – A simple advertiser and publisher network which pays upto $100/tweet(depending on your follower count). I myself  got $4.5/tweet having 1700 followers. If you have 500 followers, you can easily make $1.5 a tweet which is not bad at all!

Advertise with Magpie
At Magpie, it is talking about more than banner advertising. Magpie is about generating a conversation for your brand within a social networking context – Twitter. With Twitter having over 9 million users and growing rapidly, advertising with Magpie would be really viral and cost effective! You can control your daily budget and its really simple.

Are you a Magpie yet?

iTwit.in – John Chow sponsored my start up!

By Mohnish On March 18, 2009 8 Comments

A new Short URL Service launched by Sensonize.com. Its simple, neat and clean. The best thing about the site is that John Chow has funded it (Yes he did!). This service is believed to be extremely simple, neat and clean. Absolute NO ADS! No letters in your Short URL, only numbers – That keeps it clean! But, you can select the tags you like in alphanumeric.

How does this service help you on Twitter?
If you were on Twitter, you would have noticed that people use TinyURL.com which is pretty slow these days and is having alot of errors. I thought of making my own short url service, exclusively for Twitter which would be short, pronounceable and worked 4x faster than TinyURL. The page weights less than 3KB and has rich features like social bookmarking, sign up, login and tracking the clicks on your URL. iTwit is an amazing way to hide your affiliate links and tweet them 😉 You can also use iTwit on your blog/website – Its 100% FREE! Its not only free, its also SEO/Search friendly! If anyone searches for “Twit” which I believe has many searches on Twitter search, your tweet will come up in the search results – Thats an evil way to use iTwit and gain followers! 😀

How did I get in touch with John?
I was confused with the domain(s) I should use for this website. I had 2 domains in mind, actually 3.
1) iTwit.in – I bought this
2) iTweet.in
3) Tweet.in (Actually taken, had to buy from the owner)

fireshot-capture-18-twitter-_-john-chow_-sensonize-no-i-dont-need-___-twitter_com_johnchow_status_1334123048

The domain costs $14 each and I was short of funds since I needed hosting + domain + had some fixes to be done in the script. After the fixes were done I tweeted John asking him which domain would suit my tinyurl website since he had more experience than me and was on a holiday in China. John told me to buy iTwit and iTweet and I was like – WTF lol .. I was confused. I asked many other people about which domain should I go with, I got many tweets saying that I should go with iTwit.in since it was short by a letter and made some sense for a tinyurl service. Now what happens is, I tell John that I am financially ripped on my paypal balance since I transferred my funds just 2 days back and I have hosting bill coming up + money only for a domain and I can’t buy both the domains unless he pays for one of them as a gift (Evil Grin). He offered me $50 to start my venture and I was confused. I offered him 9 CN domains with 200+ days value, but he declined. We are only Twitter friends, why would he give me $50 just because I wanted to start this shorturl website yadda yadda. Ok after a few exchanges of tweets, he told me when/If I make profit out of that site I should give him a cut. I was fine with that 🙂 But will a TinyURL website made exclusively for Twitter make ANY profit? I highly doubt that. But I have offered John 12 months of free advertising on the site, whenever he wants it. If the site grows big its probably going to be a money plant – ahaha! John tested the service too! He made a tinyurl to a post on his blog iTwit.in/footer and tweeted his followers to check it out.

I feel honored to be sponsored by the wonderful man himself – John Chow. This is another way Twitter could help you make it big! Even if you don’t get a startup like I did, you will probably build more contacts and find the right people for your business. Make sure you are following @JohnChow on Twitter and do head over to John Chow dot com and subscribe to his RSS!
