Does Bum Marketing Still Work?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Bum marketing is the idea of using free resources such as squidoo or blogger or other free forums to look for possible customers for your products and services.

The answer is that that it can still work if it is done properly and artfully. The reason is because lots of people these days go to free sites to look for things like jobs or services because they don’t have to sign up or put out money to search them for the things they want or need to sell.

Since so many people are checking these free resources of blogs, forums, etc, there is a great potential you will find at least a few potential customers.

So, yeah, that style of marketing still does still work.

There is, however, a lot of completion for bum marketing now-a-days. And when you work with clients on these types of sites, they probably already have some sort of objective in mind. In order to succeed, you have to figure out what it is.

To do that, you have to closely study all the potential customers you find. All you need to do is regularly go on the free sites and post your content that is focused on helping people with exactly what they want.

Bum marketing means you don’t have to have a dedicated web page that you can use to advertise your products or services. So when someone asks you the question, if it is still a decent way to start up online, you have to explain to them why it works, but only if you understand that it isn’t the same way of selling as a regular website is.

Instead, it is a method where you use other people’s websites to either post things like on blogger or squidoo organize the internet through your content to reach potential clients by publishing fresh posts based on finding out what people are searching for.

Bum Marketing is a great tool if you are new to the world of Internet sales and providing a product via the new online marketing arena.

It is cheap, like free sorta cheap. It doesn’t require you building your own website, and it is a long term kind of strategy that can be modified as your business grows or otherwise changes.

It can work well for beginners just starting out in the Internet marketing world. Marketing of this nature can work extremely well but is dependent on how you use it, but it will get people started in the IM arena.

All that's required is to have a product or service that someone else would want and a plan on how to market that to the correct target audience. Then, just have some common sense and you will be well on your way to your first sale.

Using bum marketing can be a way to get that business going.
