How to Use Social Bookmarking and Networking to Sell Your Digital Products

Among the most preferred tools used by Internet marketers are social bookmarking and social networking. We are all aware of the popular social bookmarking sites like Digg and networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, etc. These and a number of other social bookmarking sites let the user create the contents on the website instead of the webmaster. By social bookmarking, you can leave the address or the link to your website or articles or even the affiliate product on social networking websites.

Lots of people are using social bookmarking and networking to sell their digital products. There are millions of people on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. Isn’t it common sense that more people mean more prospective customers? In order to attract more customers to the website that has your digital product; you can also use these methods. These are tried and tested and very effective methods to sell digital products.

But how is it done? Let’s use these examples to it understand better.

Suppose you join groups on MySpace with your marketing account. MySpace allows the users to create niche groups. These groups are generally free to join but there are some that are private and have a limited number of members. Your next step is to look for groups that have similar niche marketing interests to you. Once you have found such groups, you can make posts there. This will guide many potential clients to your site and that can help you sell your digital product. Be very careful in doing this, as you would not like to look like a spammer. If people feel that you are a spammer then there is a very good chance that you will be banned from MySpace and then all your dreams of using networking will never get fulfilled.

Lets see what happens when you join another popular bookmarking site called Digg. In Digg, you will be allowed to submit an article from anywhere on the Internet. Other members of the site read these articles. You can easily do social bookmarking here that will help you sell your product. All you need to do is place a link to the website through which you are selling your product in your article. More and more people will visit your site and this will increase the chances of sale of that product. It may sound a little tricky but most of the Internet marketers are using this method to increase the traffic towards their site and to sell their products.

Social bookmarking and networking have become the most popular methods for Internet marketing. You can use both separately however, when you use both in conjunction with the other, the results may pleasantly surprise you. It doesn’t require a lot of hard work and the results are amazing. There is a lot of information on the Internet about different social bookmarking sites, so choose the site that will offer you the best options for your needs. Once you start using social bookmarking and networking, it will not be long before you have plenty of customers willing to buy your digital product.
