I know I’m guilty of hibernating. Was it a year? I just got too pre-occupied with a lot of things, particularly my role as an internet marketing consultant. I apologize for taking this blog for granted. I sure want to blog as much, but the availability of time keeps on pushing me back. There are other blogs which I penned that reflect what I do or what I feel. The latest is a mapping blog where I derived ideas from the mapping applications and techniques used for data visualization. The other is a collection of inspiring thoughts, ideas to live by to nourish the spirit. By doing so, I think I am still in the WordPress circulation.
So anyway, I decided that this time, I will be tackling a new issue – internet marketing.
Well, it’s not that new for anyone who’s into the business for 10 years or so. But it’s a whole new topic to be discussed for this particular blog. Internet marketing is as popular as the surge in popularity of internet itself. It covers a lot of topic from article marketing, press release submission, email marketing, website content creation, copywriting, and a lot more. I take pride on having a considerable number of experience with a lot of those mentioned since I really love my job and the intricacies of internet marketing. The more they clobbered me, the more my interests spark.
On this note I became fascinated with submitting press releases to various sites. Some of them are very effective and brings a very good number of web visitors who eventually became satisfied customers. There are exceptional sites that I regularly used with minimal fees. Some of them are:
Meanwhile, there are also some press release sites where you can submit for free. Some of them email detailed reports about my press releases’ statistics and I really appreciate that. At the end of my shift everyday, I really take the time to learn about the statistics to help me get insights on what readers like to read, what keywords to use, and what else to improve. I like using:
But the others are really confusing. Like this instance when I used Free Press Index, I thought I will be getting the same good experience when I used Free-Press-Release. Wendy from Free-Press-Release was helpful and assisting everytime I encounter an issue. But what I experience using Free Press Index was the opposite. I emailed them 3 times and I never get any response. I used my fund for a paid PR but the PR submitted is still on hold. Boy, I am confused as ever!
If you have any problems or troubles with press release submission, maybe you can use the PR sites mentioned above. I would discourage you to use Free Press Index as they are not responsive and just waste your time. For those who have PR submission experiences, what do you suggest?
