Whether you are into internet marketing or not, you must have stumbled upon sites such as Digg, Stumble Upon, Delicious or Reddit. Online bookmarks had become part of the daily routine of internet savvy individuals. Who would not enjoy these sites anyway? Back when it was first introduced on the net, internet users enjoyed such new idea of sharing the links to their favorite sites through online bookmarks.

These recent years, marketing with social bookmarking has become an important activity for every internet marketer who wants to boost traffic to their sites. Online bookmarks are submitted to popular social bookmarking sites in order for it to have a broader reach. These bookmarking sites still appeals to both regular internet users and online entrepreneurs.

If you mean to do viral marketing, then online bookmarks are just one of the ways on how to spread your influence in your target market. This privilege is being enjoyed by most marketers since it’s free and it delivers results. However, you must also know certain tricks in order to fully maximize the advantages of online bookmarks to your business.

First, you have to make sure that you know where and how to find your potential customer in these bookmarking sites. Simply marking all your web pages will not assure that you will get the results that you are aiming for. People might not easily recognize your site and pay it a visit.

Thus, if you want to create waves in the way you market in these websites, you have to know your customers well. If the title is well-written and well-tagged, too, most likely your target audience will make time in opening your page and read it till the end. This is one way of attracting the right people to your business.

Second, your posts must at least be entertaining in order to sustain the interest of your readers. Sprinkle a little humor on your articles. The competition is tight so set your best foot forward at all times. Third, don’t forget to address the concerns or problems of your target market thru your writing.

Example, if your product offers a certain solution to an imminent problem, you have to make sure that the contents of the web page that you will mark must address your prospect’s problems. Contents, again, play a vital role here. If you are able to impress your readers and most importantly, able to deliver more than what is expected, they would surely recommend your online bookmarks to people they know.

Make sure you have all these three in place and see how you can be influential in your niche.
