Choose the next marketing services that we should offer!

 

For two months at a time (except the first period, which will span over three months), we'll be running polls in which we inquire customers about the services that they want made available next. We then take the winner, we remove it as an option from the next poll, and we start doing whatever is needed in order to create a new efficient marketing technique (if possible).

You're into marketing, right? Then, just look in the list above, vote for whatever you think might be helpful to promote your product, cause, creative or service, and if you don't find it in the list suggest it in the comment section! That's all! Have fun! :)

Free secret joke – no one knows about this page

Do not share, take it to the grave, very likely to be the best joke conceivable by a human mind:

An infinite number of mathematicians walk into a bar.

The first mathematician orders a beer. The second orders half a beer.

I don't serve half-beers, the bartender replies.

Excuse me?, asks mathematician #2.

What kind of bar serves half-beers?, the bartender remarks. That's ridiculous.

Oh c'mon, says mathematician #1, do you know how hard it is to collect an infinite number of us? Just play along!

There are very strict laws on how I can serve drinks. I couldn't serve you half a beer even if I wanted to.

But that's not a problem, mathematician #3 chimes in, at the end of the joke you serve us a whole number of beers. You see, when you take the sum of a continuously halving function -

I know how limits work, interjects the bartender.

Oh, alright then. I didn't want to assume a bartender would be familiar with such advanced mathematics.

Are you kidding me?  The bartender replies. You learn limits in like, 9th grade! What kind of mathematician thinks limits are advanced mathematics?

HE'S ON TO US, mathematician #1 screeches.

Simultaneously, every mathematician opens their mouth and out pours a cloud of multicolored mosquitoes. Each mathematician is bellowing insects of a different shade.

The mosquitoes form into a singular, polychromatic swarm. FOOLS it booms in unison, I WILL INFECT EVERY BEING ON THIS PATHETIC PLANET WITH MALARIA!

The bartender stands fearless against the technicolor hoard. But wait, he interrupts, thinking fast, if you do that, politicians will use the catastrophe as an excuse to implement free health-care. Think of how much that will hurt the taxpayers!

The mosquitoes fall silent for a brief moment. My God, you're right. We didn't think about the economy! Very well, we will not attack this dimension. FOR THE TAXPAYERS! and with that, they vanish.

A nearby barfly stumbles over to the bartender. How did you know that that would work?

It's simple really, the bartender says. I saw that the vectors formed a gradient, and therefore must be conservative.

How to promote your cause with an AMA (Ask Me Anything!)

Short explanation of AMA's and how they can be used for marketing purposes

An AMA (Ask Me Anything) is a thread started on social media, usually Reddit, where you tell people what you're about and you also invite them to ask you anything, with the implicit promise that in the next few days, you'll be spending as much time as necessary in order to answer all the non-trolling questions. These threads tend attract a lot of eyes and can be used to promote your cause, by simply mentioning it in the main body of the thread or in the reply that's getting most views.

The main subreddit where AMA's are posted is /r/IAmA, with 18.5 million subscribers as of 2018.11.20. But you can post AMA's wherever your target market is. If you sell car decals, you could choose the /r/cars subreddit and a few groups on Facebook related to tuning cars, and present your short bio and your startup there, then promise to answer any question related to car decals in the next few days. For the Reddit threads, consider having us upvote them and comment, in order to jump-start the interest. Otherwise, this might happen:

 

Answer all the questions!

Make sure you understand the distinction between trolling questions and uncomfortable ones. If you work at a non-profit raising funds in order to feed stray dogs in Detroit, a trolling question might be:

How can you identify if a dog is stray or just lost, and what do you do to find their owner for the latter situation?

You don't have to answer such a question.

An uncomfortable question might be:

Wouldn't it be best to raise funds to sterilize the stray dogs, and use the rest of the money to support homeless people?

You need to answer it. Answer as many questions as possible, including the ones that you find uncomfortable; people will appreciate it!

 

Be real!

Another tip would be to be as real as possible. In today's society where bad education and social media invites everybody into a fakeness competition, with the winners being the people that create the coolest narratives, the traits of honesty and realness are appreciated even more. Lower your guard, do not think what you're supposed to say when answering a question, and just answer it from the heart, with all the awkward, ego-lowering and non-hyperbolic elements that might be attached to the truth.

If you're a marketing genius (and you might be ready for our Advanced blog section), you can use the above facts in order to over-act with realness and honesty, for example to dramatize answers in order to solicit empathy. People will like you more.

 

How to prepare for your own "Ask Me Anything" thread:

  • spend 30 minutes browsing through the most upvoted AMA's of all time https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/top/?sort=top&t=all
  • search on Google for other AMA's that relate to your field of activity, see how other people have done it; example of a search queries:
    • inurl:ama site:reddit.com car tuning
    • car tuning "ask me anything"
  • read everything here: http://iama.groovehq.com/help_center
  • if you will buy from us a lot of upvotes for your post, comments, and downvotes for competing posts, the traffic to the thread might be very high therefore set aside at least three hours in which to answer questions continually; when you're at this stage, whatever donation or support you might be soliciting will probably end up being successful too
  • find a catchy title for the AMA, that makes people want to click; some examples from the past:
  • consider scheduling your AMA with at least two weeks in advance, so that it appears in the sidebar of /r/iama; you'll need to send date, time, person (information about you), description (information about the AMA) to [email protected]; maybe just send them the title and the body that you'll be using, so that you get some feedback in advance on the quality of the proof and on the request for support (they might consider it too emphasized)
  • scheduling might not be worth the effort, but you can at least message the moderators of /r/IAmA before posting to ask them if the title and the body are fine
  • the request for support doesn't have to be in the main body of your post; it can be as a reply to one or more of the most upvoted questions; note here that we have the ability to upvote Reddit comments as well, not just the threads
  • post at a time when traffic from your target market should start going up

 

How to manage your AMA, once it is up:

  • share the link to it through all your social media channels, and ask all your close friends to share it as well
  • as mentioned already:
    • be real
    • do not engage with trolls
    • answer all the uncomfortable questions as well
  • cross-post it in relevant subreddits and add "[xpost /r/IAmA]" at the end of the title
  • again, promote it with our help; it won't be worth the time that you're putting into this strategy if your thread is getting no traffic

 

This is what you need for the actual process of posting the AMA:

If your internet skills are bad, here's a step by step guide on how to register a Reddit account and do the post (we found it at "Useful links", in the /r/IAmA subreddit): https://goo.gl/ZZgLmS

Here's a template that you could use for your post, if your main goal is to bring people to a fundraiser:

Title: I am [WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION]. [WHAT DO YOU DO CURRENTLY?]. [WHAT IS YOUR LATEST ACHIEVEMENT?]! -- AMA

- or at the end: — AMA!
- only specify your name if you are extremely famous

 

Body:
Hi! [Name] here! [Bio in a few phrases]

[Why your cause is important]

[Call to action (here you would mention about your fundraiser)]

[Secondary call to action starting with "Please support the campaign and ..." - make it clear what the advantages are for those donating]

Proof: [Proof]

How we are helping the cryptocurrency ecosystem

We've been taking payments through cryptocurrency for more than two years, and not only through this website. Most of the time we've accepted more than 60 different cryptocurrencies as a method of payment. Lately, we've only been accepting the ones that were actually getting used, plus two exceptions:

  • DASH, because of how much they work towards adoption in countries that need a stable currency
  • Zcash, because of all their work in expanding the science and the possibilities from this field

 

Since NANO seems to be the front runner for a deflationary trustless cryptocurrency on which centralization forces do not act, we're trying to help it more than we help others:

[1] At Checkout, we're accepting payment with NANO through BrainBlocks, with no transaction fees and no payment processor fees.

 

[2] We're running 4 nodes on the beta-net and 2 nodes on the main-net, in different data centers around the world, and we'll keep them up in perpetuity.

 

[3] Two of the six nodes offer open access to their RPC interface. The ports won't be changing in the future, and they're being kept updated automatically.

For the main-net, this one can be used: http://80.241.211.21

The RPC is open for anybody to use at port 7888 (no GPU, enable_control is true):

curl -d '{ "action" : "version" }' 80.241.211.21:7888

Anybody can play with it, or integrate it with any business/tool/service/whatever.

For the beta-net, this one has RPC open on 55888: http://207.180.231.218

The main-net server is auto-updating on the :latest docker tag, and the beta-net auto-updates on :master.

 

[4] We'll soon be running a stress test script on the beta network in perpetuity, with low frequency, in order to create a more realistic environment for devs and testers.

 

[5] We'll choose two of the nodes that we've set up, and make them representatives. Anyone will be able to delegate voting weight to them. We want them up flawlessly for at least 30 days first.

 

We often donate to free open source projects from the cryptocurrency space. Even with the bear market of this year, there haven't been more than 5 days in a row where we haven't made at least one donation.

Buy Product Hunt upvotes – an easy way to promote/launch your mobile app, website, hardware project or tech creation

Buying Product Hunt upvotes has been possible for almost a year now through our main page. We've had incredible success, with our record being having the top two products in one day promoted by us. Even though the website is called "Product Hunt", as in completed or alpha/beta-products, we've been able to bring to the top ideas that had just an ICO and a talented team supporting them. Note that based on their own description, the platform is for launching mobile apps, websites, hardware projects and tech creations. This description is general enough that you don't have to worry much about what you're promoting and how "it fits". When you buy Product Hunt upvotes from us, you also get a guarantee of us not using bots or automation of any kind, and our PH accounts having realistic and maintained Twitter accounts behind them. It has been very rare for products upvoted by us to get shadowed, and when that happened it was either because their owners upvoted them through automation as well, or the products were simply trash and having any amount of upvotes was unjustifiable.

To describe our service and its requirements, I'll first quote its description:

We’ll deliver over 150 upvotes on ProductHunt. If it’s not just us upvoting (therefore it doesn’t look suspicious), we’ll provide up to 400 upvotes. Please buy this at least two days before “your product is hunted”, and write at Order Notes when it will be live. Even better, schedule the post through the website and send us the link to it, and specify the hour when it will go live.

Do note that we've been a lot less successful with people that haven't scheduled their posts, therefore take the above advice as mandatory if you want a successful campaign. On top of buying ProductHunt upvotes from us, it would be nice to have a friend comment on your product and ask a question about it, in order to create some activity. If you don't know which of your friends is active on Product Hunt, just reply to whoever contacts you about the service from Upvotes Club, and provide him with the text for a comment; it will be posted for free. If you buy Product Hunt upvotes for a product that is shitty in a very obvious way, we won't even start on it and we'll refund you because we need to protect our accounts.

buy product hunt upvotes

To summarize what you need to do in order to buy Product Hunt upvotes and not worry about the success of the campaign:

  1. If you'll be using multiple accounts to upvote the product yourself, make sure the votes come from different browsers and IP's.
  2. Do not use any kind of automation when upvoting your post, because it will be shadowed 100%. If we detect such activity, especially coming from shitty accounts, we'll stop upvoting ourselves and you will not get a refund.
  3. Do tell all your acquaintances to upvote it, through all your personal social media channels; that is permitted and everybody does it.

If you think that to buy a minimum of 150 Product Hunt upvotes is not enough to get you to the top (or at least top 3), then the problem lies with your product, and not with our service.

Regarding the effectiveness of this marketing strategy, there's not much to talk about it. Everybody knows already how effective getting featured on ProductHunt is. You'll be bringing a lot of technical people to your product, for at least one week. Just make sure that your servers can handle the traffic.

Questions to ask about a potential cryptocurrency-related ICO investment

You want to know the biggest reason why most ICO's suck? It's because the old system is stifling new technology. If startups would be allowed to offer equity through ICO's, they wouldn't have to invent those stupid reasons for why their tokens must exist. We'd just use Ether to transact on most new platforms, and the tokens bought in the ICO's would provide equity and dividends.

If you're planning to invest in a cryptocurrency-related ICO, then make sure you do your due diligence because even though the number of scams is lower than people suspect, many of the projects are still bad enough that the risk is not worth the cost. Just as buying equity in most startups would be like throwing money away, investing in an ICO can be the same. Right now, the best ICO's are those set up in jurisdictions that allow them to sell equity through tokens. When this will be a more global phenomenon, the quality of ICO's will raise dramatically. Right now, just make sure you do more research than usual, and while you're at it... being a bit paranoid is fine. Here's what to ask about each potential cryptocurrency-related investment, before taking part in its ICO:

  1. Does it solve a problem or alleviate friction anywhere?
  2. Does it really need decentralization and other such properties?
  3. What is their current tech? (check repository code from all branches, check gitter chans, do a static code analysis, compile and run code, etc.)
  4. What is their future tech? (check whitepaper, research, milestones, repository pull requests)
  5. How close to ready is it?
  6. How is the dev team? (check their open source contributions, etc.)
  7. Do they have a funding scheme? What kind? (community donation, venture capital, institutional investment/buyouts, ICO etc.) Is it a good fit for what they're doing? (for example if they're doing a cryptocurrency with low network effects because of a badly chosen funding scheme, it's best to just wait for its first fork)
  8. How are they organized? (dev-lead like Bitcoin, or non-profit like Stellar, or company like Ripple, or cooperative like Rchain etc.)
  9. What is their track record?
  10. Do they have any institutional or prolific backing?
  11. Does it have competition, and where does it stand within that?
  12. Any plans to create, stimulate, and maintain adoption?
  13. Does it have a good media presence? (articles, reviews, feedback on Reddit, etc.)
  14. Does it have a good marketing team? Does it have a solid bounty program that has gathered a large community?
  15. How is the community? (count on Telegram, objectivity, etc.) Are intelligent people interested in the project or just gamblers?
  16. How is the accesibility and the liquidity of their tokens?
  17. Growth potential based on current price and supply, and also considering supply that will be coming from inflation, or lockdown? (for example private sale participants that have their tokens locked for one year will surely take profit when the lockdown is over)
  18. Is it an interactive coin offering? If not, what protections are there that the token distribution will be fair?
  19. Do the investments go into a DAICO? If not, what protections are there that the milestones will be reached?
  20. Can it survive or at least get around the regulatory hammer? (for example if they're based in US, but they're selling security tokens or utility tokens that are expected to go up in value, it's too risky)
  21. Has the ICO contract been audited?
  22. Do they have a bug bounty program for their code?
  23. Did they employ any kind of censorship (on Telegram, on Reddit, etc.)? (On Reddit, for posts it can be discovered with https://ceddit.com/r/iota/new, or by opening with the same tool controversial threads and looking for removed comments. )

Other positives:

  • write other positives that you can think of

Other negatives:

  • write other negatives that you can think of

Recommendation: (what's the probability that this is a good buy?)

  • write your final recommendation

If planning a sizeable investment, get a third party assessment. (from Amazix, Multicoin Capital, etc.)

To understand what is a fair ICO structure, read https://github.com/Thetta/GitBook_ICO-Approaches

Some of the advice given in this article was copied from here: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/7n3fxk/im_truly_disappointed/

 

Good luck! There's money to be made by the people who choose well, but ultimately you'll also need a bit of luck.

What we can do to promote your ICO or cryptocurrency

This article will discuss the digital marketing techniques that we can apply in order to promote ICO's (Initial Coin Offerings), STO's (Security Token Offerings), ETO's (Equity Token Offerings), utility tokens, smart contract platforms or cryptocurrencies (either new or existing). Our services have been used directly or resold by:

  • marketing companies
  • advisors
  • community managers, marketers or other staff belonging to the companies doing the fund raising
  • investors with large shares of certain tokens
  • swing traders

They've been satisfied and they kept coming back.

For those reselling, it's easy to add even 300% on top, because our prices are below average. Consider doing the reading and checking out our services in detail; we know there's a lot of information and examples, but it was necessary. How it usually goes for resellers is that they buy credit for each of their clients, have separate tabs on them, and then just send us links to promote and get reports back (more details towards the end of the article). For the bigger clients, they also get services from the second article that contains additional marketing services for non-English markets, and more.

We do not offer bulk discounts. We only accept payment through the main cryptocurrencies. We do not take tokens.

 

Below are a few examples of the kind of things that we can do, and the associated costs. The article will end with some packages that make it easier for ICOs to deal with us by having us manage a large part of the marketing operations.

 


We can promote you on Quora

Monitored Quora questions in these, and any other topics:
https://www.quora.com/topic/Cryptocurrencies
https://www.quora.com/topic/Ethereum-blockchain-app-platform
https://www.quora.com/topic/Bitcoin
To monitor on Quora, this service should be used (mentioned here because it's the most expensive part of the order):
https://upvotes.club/buy/monitor-quora-question/

 

Recommended purchase, one month before the ICO:

1 x Quora Question
2 x Quora Answer
1 x Quora Comment
4 x Monitor Quora Question
$396.50

The question could be something like "What is the most overlooked ICO right now in the ***** sector?"

 


 

We can promote you on Reddit

Monitored Reddit threads in any subreddit related to cryptocurrencies.
To monitor on Reddit, this service should be used (mentioned here because it's the most expensive part of the order):
https://upvotes.club/buy/monitor-reddit-post/

Having your posts done on Reddit (especially the first ones that mention the ICO) without Monitor Thread is highly inadvisable. Even great ICOs will get ripped apart.

 

Example purchase, for /r/cryptocurrency or /r/ethtrader, where we have moderator accounts:

1 x Reddit Post
40 x Reddit Upvote Post
90 x Reddit Downvote Competing Posts or Comments (these would be used against other posts only)
4 x Reddit Comment (two of them would be kept in reserve, for example in order to answer to a hater if needed)
1 x Monitor Reddit Post
$188.70

 

The idea is to keep reminding people about the ICO, every 2-3 days, through different locations/techniques. Ideas for posts:

  • Have a blog for the ICO, and link to every new blog post in related subreddits.
  • Link to tweets or other types of social media posts that mention the ICO project positively.
  • Link to videos, podcasts or other type of media that mentions the ICO project positively.
  • Link to 3rd party articles that mention the ICO positively. With these ones, even go for huge subreddits like /r/technology, /r/finance, /r/futurology, ...
  • Present the project with long descriptive titles in subreddits that could be interested in it, while linking directly to the website.
  • Create “What’s your opinion” or “Which is better” threads in /r/ethtrader, /r/icocrypto, /r/CryptoCurrencies, /r/CryptoCurrency, /r/Altcoin, /r/CryptoMarkets, etc.  Because of "Reddit Monitor Thread", the positive opinions will be sent on top, while the negative one are kept at the bottom.
  • Find threads where people discuss new ICOs, and bring a comment mentioning yours positively to the top of the comment section.

 


 

We can promote you on Hacker News

Link on Hacker News to the white paper, and to the more technical blog posts. You can also create a “Show HN:” thread for the whole project, and a “Ask HN: What’s your opinion …” thread.

For “Ask HN”:

1x Hacker News Post
1x Hacker News Comment
5x Hacker News Upvote
$39.75

For “Show HN” and technical posts:

Same as above, but 10 upvotes instead of 5
$49.50

 


 

We can promote you on BitcoinTalk

Bump your ANN thread from time to time. Bumps will be questions to developers, positive commentary on the technology, discussions between accounts, and so on. The English used will be impeccable, and the comments will blend well in the thread.
Buy the “BitcoinTalk Bump” service from the main page, for each bump that you want ($4.5).
Recommended: starting one month before, five bumps per day. We’ll spread them out, for more effectiveness.

At the rate of 5 bumps per day:

$22.5 daily, $675 for one whole month

 

If you want to just test our services, this is an easy way to start. Just go to our main page https://upvotes.club, add 15 BitcoinTalk bumps in the cart and complete the checkout while pasting the link to your ANN thread at Order Notes. This should give you a proper sample of the quality of our services.

 


 

We can promote you on cryptocurrency-related forums, Facebook groups and Google+ groups

If you buy Forums Traffic for an ICO or cryptocurrency-related project, we post on all the popular cryptocurrency-related forums (BitcoinTalk, AllCryptoTalk, etc.). But don't expect this to be as cost-effective as the above strategies. We also don't provide the accounts that were used (meaning you wont get the users and the passwords); you will only receive the links to where posts have been made.

Regarding promotion in Fb/G+ groups, again, this is not as effective as the first strategies listed in this article. When ordering this, you'll receive the list of groups that we'll be targeting in the following days. We use very organic-looking texts that are able to spark discussions, for example "Opinions on ...? I like how [...]".

 


 

We can promote you on Product Hunt, and we have a whole article just about that.

 


 

We can also help with email marketing and promoting through non-English social media channels.

 


 

Costs of our services

We do not participate in Bounty Campaigns, and we only take payment through one of the main cryptocurrencies.

We have an NDA in our Terms of Service, with all of our customers, regardless of the plan you choose:

 

No Plan

  • The client creates his own texts and strategy.
  • The client orders normally through the website, whenever he needs something. At checkout we accept the main cryptocurrencies.

 

Premium #1

  • The client buys credit for $1,800 or more, all paid in the beginning. 20% of the deposit goes towards support, he’ll be able to use the rest for ops. The ops are acquired through the website with the "Deduct from credit" option at checkout.
  • We receive whatever texts the client can provide, and we also create our own when needed.
  • The client will order through the website with “Deduct from credit”, only when he knows exactly what’s needed. Otherwise he’ll message us on Skype about it. We’ll help him optimize each order that he messages us about.
  • We’ll do one Twitter campaign for each $1,800 bought in credit. We retweet with powerful accounts that have >90% at twitteraudit. Follower counts: ~500k, ~450k, ~50k, ~30k.

 

Premium #2

  • The client buys credit for $3,600 or more, all paid in the beginning. 20% of the deposit goes towards campaign management and support, he’ll be able to use the rest for ops.
  • Everything in Premium #1, but we’ll also propose ops ourselves. Not limited at the above strategies. For the ops that we propose, we also do: voat.co, hubski.com, empeopled.com, slashdot.org, snapzu.com, Fb/G+, LinkedIn (rarely), etc.
  • If the client chooses so, this can be fully managed. He will have a campaign manager to which he emails new links where the ICO has been mentioned, and the campaign manager sets up the most efficient ops himself, taking care of the copies and the strategy completely. The client receives regular reports and credit updates.
  • We’ll do one Twitter campaign for each $1,200 bought in credit.
  • We’ll analyze their website/ANN thread/technical papers/code repository from the perspective of a buyer.

 

If you need a more global promotion, check out our article on additional marketing services for cryptocurrencies or ICOs, which has some very different, powerful and targeted strategies.

In order for you to understand the process better, I'll be pasting below the kind of email you receive from the campaign manager assigned to you, immediately after having bought Premium #2:

Credit added on your email. I'll be your main UC contact helping with the marketing campaign for your project.

How do you want this?

  • Fully Managed - Meaning that I take care of scheduling ops, you just send me through email new links where your project was mentioned positively. You'd receive reports with what has been scheduled, the results, and credit updates. Of course, nothing is set in stone, you can always request modifications to the ops that I schedule.
  • Support - I send you 5-15 ops ideas based on the material that you send us, then you get inspired by them and schedule ops through the website with "Deduct from credit", and whenever you need help or feedback you email me (or you ask whoever is on Skype at the moment).

Since you're on Premium #2, you can choose any method you prefer. Do note that we prefer clients to choose Fully Managed, simply because we're better at choosing how and when to target each community, depending on what we're posting at the time.

The main idea is to have monitored posts on Reddit regularly, so that we keep reminding people about the project. Of course, we should also do Quora, BitcoinTalk bumps, even Hacker News when we have some interesting techie articles. If I put together some good texts, we can also promote on Facebook and Google+ crypto-related groups, and on crypto-related forums.

For the Twitter campaigns, I'll just need links to your best tweets sent to this email, and I'll handle it from there.

Regardless of your choice, when replying to this email please include any of the following that you want used for promoting your project:

  • whatever marketing texts you might have prepared
  • whatever articles discuss your project
  • whatever (YouTube?) videos discuss your project
  • whatever podcast episodes discuss your project
  • do you have a blog? if yes, then links to what you consider to be the best articles
  • whatever social media posts (preferable from reputable accounts) mention your project
  • a list of your competitors, and why your project is superior to each one

How to rank higher on Google

We teach you here how to rank higher on Google, without wasting too many words on each method. The statistics are taken from recent comprehensive studies. We'll keep this page updated, therefore bookmarking it might be a good idea.

  1. Get highly upvoted link posts going to your website. Here's an amazing insight that you won't find in any such guide: Google takes into consideration the popularity of links on social media aggregation services, like Reddit. If two link posts from /r/technology have the keywords "compact portable leaf blower", yet one of the posts has a lot more upvotes than the other... then then one with more upvotes will also be in front of the other in the Google search results. This means that the search results can actually be manipulated for low costs.
  2. Get a lot of backlinks to your content (consider using our Ultimate SEO service, our our Managed Traffic)! On average, the top 2 results on page 1 of a Google search equate to 38% of all the backlinks of the first 10 results! Acquiring backlinks from multiple domains is important.
  3. Get HTTPS for your website, preferably through a free SSL certificate - because paying for this is stupid! HTTPS has positive correlation with higher rankings, with 33% of all URLs that rank #1, #2 or #3 using this protocol.
  4. Get keyword-focused internal links and backlinks (internal links are links that go from one page on a domain to a different page on the same domain)! Work on acquiring links that have your keyword present within the anchor text (the anchor text is the clickable text in a hyperlink), but don't overdo it! Anchor text is a huge ranking signal; in a study, the 100 top performing blog posts had, on average, over 80% more keyword-focused anchor texts than the rest.
  5. Use shorter page titles! Top-ranking webpages tend to have shorter page titles, with the sweet spot nearing 8 words in length. Identify any page titles that are too long and shorten them down to ensure they’re as succinct as possible!
  6. Put the target keyword in the URL! Webpages with the target keyword in their URL tend to rank higher in Google. If you weren't doing this, do it from now on; avoid updating URLs of existing content because there are greater risks associated with this, than the potential reward.
  7. Include your target keyword within the page title! Over 15% of all the pages ranked #1 include the target keyword within the page title.
  8. If you have Google/Universal Analytics installed, Google can deduce how relevant your page was for the search by looking at these two statistics: time-on-page and bounce rate. If you have a high bounce rate and a low time-on-page, uninstall Universal Analytics!
  9. Use shorter URLs! Top-ranking webpages in Google have shorter URLs, with position #1 URLs averaging 59 characters in length.
  10. Search engines understand vote counts when it comes to social news aggregation websites. If a link leading to your website on Reddit has 50 upvotes, it will be a social proof more powerful than if it had 5 upvotes. Make sure you slip somehow in the title the keywords that you're ranking for.

How to promote yourself if you sell B2B services

Method 1

Market yourself through comments on Reddit. Add something similar to this as your home page:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Blogging+Entrepreneur+freelance+marketing+smallbusiness+socialmedia+startups+writing/new/

In this example, whenever you'll be opening your browser, you'll see the new posts from these subreddits: blogging, entrepreneur, freelance, marketing, smallbusiness, socialmedia, startups, writing. Answer to people, help them, mention your website from time to time, maybe even add something similar to this to the end of each of your comments:

---

Check out my service from website!

Of course, change the list of subreddits to whatever interests you by modifying the link.

For every 9 comments, do a post linking directly to your website. It's called the 9:1 rule and I believe it's mentioned in the self-promotion TOS of Reddit. You'll get a lot less hate by following this rule as opposed to relentlessly promoting your website. Of course, we can help when needed with upvotes for both comments or posts, in order to gain you more visibility. Here's an incomplete list of what can be done with our help. Also check our main page.

 

Method 2

When you've written an article for which the target market could be any entrepreneur, post it on news.ycombinator.com (Hacker News). We sell Hacker News accounts of quality here. By posting from a great account, your post won't get removed and you have a much higher chance of making the home page.

 

Method 3

When you've written an article on which the target market could be any marketer, post it on growhhackers.com (GH). These are the tags which can be chosen for any article posted on growthhackers.com, just so you understand better what fits there: Analytics, API, B2B, Blogging, Case Study, Chrome, Churn, Content Marketing, Copywriting, CRO, Crowdfunding, Customer Development, Customer Service, Data Science, Design, E-commerce, Early Traction, Ecosystem, Email Marketing, Engagement, Engineering, Facebook, Feedback, Firefox, Google Adwords, Google+, Growth, Growth Hacks, Growth Team, Inbound Marketing, Instagram, Landing Pages, LinkedIn, Local SEO, Marketing Strategy, Metrics, Mobile Apps, MobileMarketing, Network Effects, Onboarding, Optimization, Paid Marketing, Pinterest, Press, Pricing, Product, Product Launch, Referral, Retargeting, SaaS, Sales, Science of Persuasion, SEM, SEO, Snapchat, Social Marketing, Tools, Twitter, User Experience, Viral, Youtube.

 

For methods 3 and 4, we can post for you if you have bad accounts, and you should also consider having your posts upvoted.

 

Method 4

Market your website through answers on Quora. Make sure you answer the most followed questions because they get much more traffic. But choose those on which you actually stand a chance of getting a top answer. If the question is five years old, with 500 answers already and the top one having 1000 upvotes... it's obviously not worth the effort of trying to compete.

How to do this method easily? You should add the pages of a few topics as homepages (yes, you can have more than one homepage!), in order to have them accessible when you open the browser; example: https://www.quora.com/topic/Startups/top_questions; this would show you the questions that need an answer from the "Startups" topic. Just have a quick look each time you open the browser and only answer from time to time, when it's easy for you. Once you have at least 5 answers in each topic on which you're specialized, you can get Maximize PeopleRank from us (read its description on the main page) for each of those topics, and from there onwards your answers will get much better positioning.

You can also try to compete on the bigger questions by buying upvotes and downvotes (for competing answers) from us, or you can create new "big questions" by buying Question Follows from us for the questions that don't get enough traffic, but on which you already have the top answer.

 

Method 5

Have us post and upvote a link to your newest articles on Voat, Snapzu and TopTopic.
