Launching a blog is always exciting, but it’s also stressful because you know how tough it’s going to be establishing it. What if I told you that you can establish the blog on day #1 and it will only cost you $50?
There is this wonderful little tool I like to call Fiverr.com, where you can hire anyone to do pretty much anything for $5. Some of these things include internet marketing, article writing, etc.
If you were to hire a few people on Fiverr right after you launch your blog, you can have immediate traffic, blog comments, and backlinks before you know it. It’s important to get things done of value though. You don’t want to hire someone to get you “traffic” because there is a good chance that they will be using a fake traffic software that’s only meant to inflate your statistics. You want REAL traffic, such as that brought on from social networks.
- 33 StumbleUpons.
- Posting your link on a Facebook Page wall with 30,000 likes.
- Guaranteed 500 Facebook Fan Page likes.
- Tweeting your url 1,000 times in 50 Twitter accounts over the course of a week.
These are just a few of the services that people post on Fiverr.com.
While everything sounds great, it isn’t always so. I have had some great providers on Fiverr.com, but I have also had some disappointments. One disappoint was when I hired someone to post my link on their Facebook Page wall, but they accepted too many jobs at once and my link disappeared from the top within seconds.
To ensure you are getting a good service, check the listing and see if there are any previous customer reviews for that particular service. If there aren’t any at all, it doesn’t mean it’s a bad service. It just means that it either hasn’t sold yet, or the buyer wasn’t polite enough to rate the service. But you may come across listings with negative reviews. In that case, at least you checked and saved yourself $5.
I always go for the services that aren’t over-hyped. For example, why would I go for a “traffic” service when I can get 33 StumbleUpons for 33 different blog posts of mine? Or 33 StumbleUpons from 33 different accounts on the same blog post? That’s more likely to drive real traffic to my blog.
You can also hire someone to post legitimate comments on your blog. When I say legitimate, I mean they actually read the post and comment on it with something valuable to say. You can get comments by blog hopping and guest posting too, but why not supplement it on a new blog with zero traffic?
When all is said and done, you can get some serious action on your brand spankin’ new blog by spending $50 out of pocket. It is definitely worth the money.
