Useful Internet Marketing Tools On The Cheap: AddThis
Making money online is all about generating leads - and you don't get leads without directing traffic to your site. Advertising is one sure way to draw visitors to your web site - but you do have to pay for those clicks, don't you? Word of mouth is free, but how do you generate that online?
Make It Easy To Share Your Content
For instance, if you want to share this article on Twitter you simply click the AddThis button and choose Twitter from the list. It automatically takes you to your Twitter home page and even fills in the message box for you. All you have to do is click "update" to share with all your Twitter followers. You can choose to use one of the many default button styles or totally customize it via API or the new Toolbox function.
Track The Analytics
In and of itself, this is fantastic - but the news gets even better. You may also sign up to receive free analytics generated when viewers share your content. So, not only are you getting valuable word of mouth exposure, you can also see the top sharing trends, top content shared, top services used, and geographic details about the viewers who share your content. And you can also export this analytics data to Excel or a tab delimited file.
So, if you're looking for an easy and cheap way to generate more leads, give AddThis a try.
