  • I'd advise you to use this service: ⇒ www.WritePaper.info ⇐ The price of your order will depend on the deadline and type of paper (e.g. bachelor, undergraduate etc). The more time you have before the deadline - the less price of the order you will have. Thus, this service offers high-quality essays at the optimal price.

  • Best survey site online! $1,500 a month thanks to you guys! Without a doubt the best paid surveys site online!I have made money from other survey sites but made double or triple with GoldOpinions.com for the same time and effort. The variety and number of daily paid surveys I get from them is unmatched. A must for anyone looking for extra cash or a full time income. ■■■ http://t.cn/AieX2Loq

  12. 12. Tips For Maximizing Any Social/Viral Promotion • Have patience: It takes time to build up credibility and gain a high Karma score. Keep at it and the payback will be substantial • Don’t be too promotional: Like any other method of promotion (email, blog entries, etc), there should be a good mix of promotional vs. non-promotional posts with a cadence that doesn’t overwhelm the audience • Timing is everything: Try to avoid “crowded” or competitive times, and make sure you allow enough run- time for promotions to pick up steam (typically 30 days) • Keep it simple: Promo codes for social promotions should be something like SAVE10, not 4M9K2&Q9Z • Expiration dates: Without such, you risk that Google will index the code long after it expires resulting in customer service issues. • Multiple codes: This is an easy way to track different social channels (e.g., TWITTER10, REDDIT10) • Deal consistency: Any deal promoted in social / viral channels must be as good as such that are publically available. • Boundaries: Don’t overstep boundaries of other departments (social may have their own calendar) • Empowerment: Provide your affiliates with tools that facilitate customer acquisition and ultimately greater revenue through their social outlets #ASW17 @LinkConnector #ReviTrage
  13. 13. Why You Shouldn’t Overlook Viral & Social As Part Of Your Marketing Mix • It’s an alternative to Google! • It can be very cost effective channel – even free in many cases • With a fraction of what you pay for SEM, you can have a massive impact • You have the opportunity to directly engage with new & existing customers • You can execute a promotion very quickly • It’s on your own terms - You control the copy and content without relying on partners to “get it right” #ASW17 @LinkConnector #ReviTrage
