How To Use SocialMarker – Video Tutorial

As promised, I’ve been playing around with the bells and whistles over at – and I absolutely love this site!  Not only is the process of submitting your posts to bookmarking sites easy, you don’t even have to create an account on SocialMarker – just bookmark and go.

The only downside (and it’s not really much of a downside) with SocialMarker is it doesn’t provide an option to automatically log into your desired bookmarking sites, so therefor this action has to be done manually.  But if you compare the amount of time it would take to visit each site, log in, fill in the information and submit – SocialMarker is definitely the goods.  Enough talking.  Click the link below to view the tutorial.

Submit To 1000 Social Bookmarking Sites In 30 Seconds

Submit To 1000 Social Bookmarking Sites In 30 SecondsYeah right.  Actually it’s more like 100+ social bookmarking sites in about 15 minutes.  How you ask?  By using the free services of a great little site called and if you haven’t heard of this site before, and you own a blog or two, then you better hop on over and create an account before they start charging for their services.

I first read about back in late June on, which was around the time Veronica and I were conceptualizing this blog, and I knew at some point I wanted to try out a mass bookmarking service of some kind because we all know how time consuming it is to keep up with all these toolbars, usernames and passwords all in the name of blog traffic.  So over the last month I’ve been dabbling with and seeing whether or not half of these social bookmarking sites are worth my time, or just another means of feeding social addiction.  So what do I think? kicks some serious ass!

The most time riddling aspect of using a service like this is setting up the accounts – but who really needs to use all 100+ social bookmarking sites to benefit from the potential traffic and backlink juice?  If you need some help getting started, or are a little overwhelmed by the whole shebang, follow these steps below and you should be on your way:

  1. Go to and set up your account.  If you have questions, click here to find your answers.
  2. Decide which social bookmarking services you would like to use, aside from the ones you already belong to.  I suggest starting off with 10-20 sites and work your way up as you become more comfortable with mass bookmarking.
  3. Click and drag the button they provide into your browser toolbar.  When you want to blast a site to all your bookmarking services, select the text and click the SocialMarker button to pre-populate and submit.  Super easy!
  4. If you looking for an all-in-one bookmarking plugin for WordPress, they’ve also taken care of that as well.  Just copy and paste the code they provide into your WordPress template and you’re good to go. has been up and active for roughly a month and we’ve already had over 500 unique visitors, 10 subscribers via RSS, and new friends passing by every single week.  SocialMarker is one of the main reasons why we are doing so well so early on and if you’re really serious about your blog, and already use social bookmarking and social networking as means of promotion and traffic, than this is for you.

If any of you already use it, I’d love to hear some feedback.



To Digg, Or Not To Digg

To Digg Or Not To DiggIf you remember in my last post, I’m in the process of setting up accounts with all the major social networking and social bookmarking sites in order to become familiar (which shouldn’t take long) with the functionality, and more importantly how each service differs from the next. Are we all familiar with the name Yaro Starak… Yes?  No?  Anyways, I’ve known of Yaro and his huge nest of hair for a while, and I recently finished reading, watching, and mildly studying his Blog Profits Blueprint program – which is free – an absolute must for anyone even considering making money online.

One thing Yaro stresses through his content is the importance of social networking and multimedia as primary mediums for marketing and promoting a blog.  This is where sites like YouTube, Facebook, Myspace, Digg, StumbleUpon, or the virtual crackpot Twitter come in to play.

How you ask?  Here’s how it goes:

  • You sign up for accounts with 3-5 popular social networking and social bookmarking sites
  • You slowly build a network of peers, mentors and enemies by visiting other blogs and leaving comments, adding friends with similar interests, digging, tweeting, stumbling, whatever…
  • The more active you are on social networks, the more attention is put towards you.
  • Funnel that traffic to a content rich, fully monetized, well designed blog and you have yourself a winner.

Here’s another doozy for ya – what do you do with that traffic when it hits you?

Unfortunately that part is not as simple.  If you’re running a blog rather than a static website, the two factors you want from your traffic is participation and action, or…


It’s great I know. 🙂

It’s a proven fact that social networking can bring hoards of potential people to a blog, and though it seems challenging to maintain multiple accounts with consistent activity, I feel the biggest challenge will be converting that traffic into long term subscribers and top commentators.  I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve clicked through a link to a blog and landed on a poorly designed, ad-filled site with garbage content.  Would any of us consider bookmarking a crappy blog with nothing resourceful?  Heck no.

Before I go, If any of you haven’t read Yaro Starak’s Blog Profits Blueprint just click here and fill in your first name and email address.  You will get an email with a link to the video, audio, and PDF version.  I suggest reading the ebook one time through, then maybe moving on to the condensed video or audio version.  You have nothing to lose, and PLENTY to gain.  Thank me later.

I will be keeping our site updated as I go through my experimental stages with social networking and social bookmarking.  I look forward to your feedback and experiences.
