Giving items away for FREE is big business!

5 months 4 weeks ago #7896 by Dennis
Martin, people waiting is part of the reason things are not moving faster.

I was a bad boy, I actually started sharing when everything was still being
tested. One thing I know is even programs which have been around a
long time can have glitches.

If we share at much as possible at this point, the next point will come
even faster. Getting people on and using something2trade helps both
them and the collective, of which they become a member.

People visiting the S2T site might look at other categories that are for sale, I want to see improvements to the site. As same as trademe does. I tryed posting before in my Facebook page. Didn't work at the level I was hoping for at that time. I know our site has improved now, but I still want to see more things added here.

Hi Martin

What has Frega banking or Frega Mobile got to do with sharing links to items being given away?

Hi Anita. Thank You. I wont share on the group yet until i'm happy with our product , like I want to see the new banking setup in place were members are connected to frega and mobile connect. Plus more on when someone buys a product on the same setup reply as trademe does. Don't want to waste the opportunity to share my link and the person needs to be satisfied on our end with each step in the process. So waiting for the right timing .

Martin Re : I just sent to join some in Hamilton, But they only have 1000 members in each group. I did join two in Bay of plenty with nearly 20,000 members each.. This is a good idea for us members to do is search for free stuff groups in your areas and join them and share S2T free stuff. Let see what happens...

I think this is a brilliant idea Martin !!. and while you are doing that we are here working in the background. to make sure the process works. So any issues please keep logging them. Thanks for everything you do :)

There is no right or wrong way or channel to Market better than others but rather a diversity of channels and ideas that will prove to be what makes us successful

It is the fact that we have different experiences and skills and are prepared to share these that is our biggest asset.

It appears you have had experience in this area as well.

Facebook is not my favorite social media. I have however
learned to use it effectively.

Things are working slow for me. I need to put up another
parts of brands article and work on training powerpoint
videos.


My plans are to start giving away training in branding.

The course will include
Marketing
Advertising
Content creation
Video creation
SEO
Email marketing
and Website setup
At this point I am waiting for the graphics.

You've set yourself some mighty big goals here Dennis... is it worth your time and effort at this stage? ...


Since they will work for any business my guess is it will be worth the effort.


We learn as we teach - so yes, it will be worth the effort Gill!

Actually the smaller groups are better to join - especially at first.

You will not get lost in the shuffle of things and a lot of people bleed over into other groups.

Once you are established with links from a few and they get links from others you are on your way.

HI Dennis

The items you can share links to in the group will not be limited to the items you are giving away but to items, others are giving away in the area ...they would then click through to contact the person giving it away and because you shared there registration links to you.

Martin groups of 1000 are actually usually better than larger groups. Things get moving so fast in real large
groups, the only ones to see the post are the person posting before and after.

Those groups take more work, because you have to do more than post. If you want people looking at what
you are posting you have to like, comment on, and share posts for them. Many times in the large groups no
one reciprocates.

If the groups have any kind of geographic targeting, groups of around 250, which are active are the best. Again
it is best to like their posts, leave a comment of some kind, and sharing.

All ads in that type of group need pictures of what is being given away. Most also will try to contact you
directly. If they succeed this doesn't bring them to Something2trade.

Good idea Paddy. They might not let me join the FB page group , as they said it only for people in there area , I live in the waikato not HBC area. But we can see what we could do. We must have other members that live in the area?

What you should do is join the group..and share links to items being given away on S2T ...but make sure that it is stuff from the area...do this slowly and you will attract lots of links
