Facebook contests are one of the most effective ways to reach new audiences and drive a ton of viral traffic back to your site. With over 1.3 billion users on the social network, it’s no wonder more individuals, bloggers, brands and businesses are trying to create Facebook contests to drive more engagement and activity to their sites.

Setting up your own Facebook contest in previous years was a big hassle. You would have to mess around with the settings and tabs on your Facebook Fan Pages and this was usually more than a headache than anything else. Fortunately, a wide range of services have figured out how to make this process much easier and now anyone can create effective social networking contests in just a few minutes. What’s even better is that they are now more effective and powerful than ever.

How to Create Amazing Facebook Contests

With so many different solutions on the market today, I’ve chosen some of my favorite Facebook contest apps and gave the benefits of each of them below.

Wishpond Facebook Contest Apps Example

Before we jump into reviewing the top Facebook contest apps available today, I wanted to first highlight some of the best ways to tweak your campaigns and promotions for maximum performance.

  1. Choose a Prize that is Relevant

    While it may seem like a good idea to give away the latest tech toy or Apple product, you will do much better with your campaigns if you choose a prize that is relevant to your brand, product or service you are trying to offer.

     

  2. Give Your Promotion a Jump Start

    All contest and promotions need to start off with a bang. In addition to promoting your contest through social networks, you should also use your email lists and site traffic to give your campaigns a boost.

     

  3. Always Collect an Email Address

    No matter what your prize is or what you are trying to promote, be sure to always require an email address. A lot of people will enter your contest and never come back. An email address is the best way to keep them coming back for more.

     

  4. Make Sure Your Contest is Mobile Ready

    More people are using their mobile devices than ever before. Be sure to check your promotion and lead gen forms to make sure they are mobile ready and optimized so no leads are lost in the process.

     

  5. Follow Up with All Participants

    Once your promotion is over, be sure to follow up with all participants… not just the winners. This is another great opportunity for you to send out one more message to everyone, letting them know the contest ended, thanking them and pushing your end offer one last time.

Follow these contest and promotions tips, while using any of the recommended applications below and you will be setup for maximum performance and results!

Top Facebook Contest Apps List

Wishpond

Wishpond is the leader in social contest apps and promotions right now. Their service is quickly wiping out the competition and making it easy for anyone to setup social contests, landing pages, pop up newsletter forms and much more. In addition to all of the tools available through their site, they also offer tracking for ad campaigns running through Facebook, Google and more.

Compared to other contest and promotion apps out there, Wishpond is quite competitive at their base rate of $45 per month. You can also sign up for a free 14 day trial that allows you to try all areas, tools and features of the site based on the package you choose. Advanced packages include their own coaching program, email automation and white-label options. Should you decide to pay for a year in advance, you will also save an additional 35% off.

Wishpond Facebook Contest App

Heyo Contest Builder App

When it comes time for you to choose a quality Facebook contest app, going with a simple drag and drop solution may be your best option. That is exactly what Heyo had in mind when they were creating their service to drive activity and engagement through the major social network.

One of the main reasons why web sites, blogs and brands want to create contests and promotions across social networks is so they can easily grab email addresses that they can follow up with. Once setup with Heyo, you will have access to all of their templates for easy contest and promotion creation. Heyo offers a free 7 day trial with no credit card needed, and premium plans are available at $30 per month.

Heyo Facebook Contest Apps

ShortStack

ShortStack makes the process of building campaigns that engage with your audience easy… and best of all they can be used anyway. While most people are focusing their efforts on social networking contests and promotions, they are also forgetting about all of the quality traffic that they are missing out on at their own sites. ShortStack’s platform allows you to create completely custom lead gen forms to match the look and feel of anything you like.

You can start creating your own lead gen forms and pages with a free trial, then full access accounts start at just $29 a month.

ShortStack Facebook Contest Apps

AgoraPulse

If you are going to be focusing your efforts on Facebook contest apps and promotions, you may also want to look into an all-in-one solution like AgoraPulse, which allows you to create apps, engage with your audience and also measure your results in the process.

All plans include unlimited apps and start as low as $29 per month. Accounts that are billed annually also save up to 35%.

AgoraPulse Facebook Contest Apps

How to Choose the Best Facebook Contest Apps

Now that we have listed some of the best Facebook contest apps for you to choose from, it’s time for you to take a step back and see what you would like to accomplish with your social networking efforts.

The great thing about each of the services listed above is that each of them offer a free trial period for you to test out their tools and what they have to offer. It’s also important to note that all four of the contest and promotions services listed are top notch and recommended by some of the most well known marketers and media companies online. Choosing which is best for you and your brand is more about preference on how to use their system and looking at your budgeting options if you are going to scale heavily in size.

The best way to find which of the Facebook contest apps services is best for you, is to try each of them out. Don’t forget, each comes with their own free trial and some of them don’t even require a credit card!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting five professionals at the 2014 Affiliate Summit East who made six-figure salaries from blogging and affiliate marketing alone. Below, I list several of their tips and thoughts about how they became authority figures and industry leaders in their fields.

Enjoy!

@JohnChow

  • Emphasized exercising good keyword research to win your audience.
  • Wrote book and gained credibility
    • People now view him as the authority on the topic, where before, no one would even care to contact him for speeches.
  • Also encourages bloggers to pay for a customized theme and logo.
    • This helps readers identify you as a “brand.”

Zac Johnson, President, ZacJohnson.com

  • Details matter.
  • Focusing on quality, not quantity, makes you money in the long run.
    • He said that he still makes money off some posts he wrote several years ago.
    • The reason for that, he admits, is because he took the time to make the post informative and easily findable in the search engines.
Syed Balkhi

@wpbeginner

Syed Balkhi, WPBeginner.com 

  • Provide variety
    • If your competition is writing posts, then create videos or infographics to stand out. Or vice versa.
  • Use YouTube to find out what your target audience wants to know more about.
    • YouTube is the second largest search engine after Google, so use it!
  • Also use Twitter Search to find relevant hashtags for what people are talking about in your niche.
    • This should help you formulate new post ideas.
John rampton

@johnrampton

John Rampton, Search Engine Journal & Adogy 

  • Strategize
    • You can write all you want about your passion, but without a strategy, you won’t make any money.
      • Said he used to write 3 posts a day for 11 months straight and didn’t even make a dollar.
    • Started to write for Search Engine Journal and then got the “bleed off” effect from SEJ’s credibility to his own blogs.
      • He strongly urges new bloggers to write guest posts on credible sites in order to gain a foothold in the industry through the right exposure.
  • Spy on Your Competition
    • Mimic what your competitors are doing and what they are not. Copy what they are doing right but also take advantage of what they are not doing.
    • Said he used to spy on Forbes – a competitor at the time – and wrote similar articles for Entrepreneur.
    • He then approached Forbes a while later and offered to write sponsored posts for them.
      • He said credible sources will buy out their competitors’ writers if you are credible and well known enough.
      • This is where the “bleed off” effect comes into play, he said.
woodward

@MattWoodwardUK

Matthew Woodward, MatthewWoodward.co.uk

  • Create a Forum
    • This helps generate a sense of community on your blog.
      • It also helps drive discussion and makes it easier than one-on-one email correspondence with your readers.
  • Provide Case Studies/ Tutorials
    • These posts have long-lasting life in the search engines, plus help you gain credibility over time.
  • Hold Competitions
    • Holding competitions generates user engagement and sends good signals to the search engines, thus allowing you to acquire more exposure and popularity.

In short, podcasting is the future — should you choose to take part in it. I just returned from my trip to Texas where I attended Podcast Movement. It was the first event of it’s kind and focused solely on podcasters. There were 600+ attendees and podcasters ranging in size, niche and experience. (photo credit)

Chris Brogan Podcast Movement

While Apple iTunes is the driving force behind most podcasts, something that all podcasters should consider is setting up their own blog for their shows. This can be as simple as creating a page on an existing site or starting a new site of it’s own. Podcasting requires all files to be hosted and sent to Apple through RSS feeds and WordPress plugins, there are many other benefits to setting up a blog for your podcast as well.

  • Make it easy for people to find your show online
  • Transcribe audio content into text
  • Build a mailing list to update your readers
  • Provide show notes to your audience
  • Launch products and services down the road
  • Bring a professional look and feel to your show

For my Rise of the Entrepreneur podcast I write a new post every time a new episode comes out. I also have a tab on the site that lists all of the previous episodes for easy review.

Audio Player on Zac Johnson

With new episodes coming out each week, it’s important for me to get my existing audience in front of my latest episodes. Since the majority of people visting my site probably don’t know what podcasts are and don’t have the “Podcasts” app on their mobile devices or computers, having an online platform and social media reach is one of the best ways to get my content out there.

Before you get all excited about podcasting and get ready to dive in, I’ll be the first to tell you that it takes a lot of time, effort, some money and dedication.

The podcasting space is wide open right now and the gateway of entry is minimal and open for anyone who is willing to take the time to not only learn the equipment, perfect their speaking, but also figuring out a business model for their show as well. Plenty of people are podcasting about their passions and hobbies, but only a small percentage will break into the top tier level of podcasting or even make money with it.

According to UnifiedSocial.com, If you are skeptical about how you can get more Twitter followers with social media advertising, consider the fact that forecasters predict that more than $10 billion will be spent on social media advertising by 2017.

Going Viral on Social Media

BI Intelligence

A report done by BI Intelligence in 2013 analyzed the state of social media and made predictions on where it is headed. The report acted as an all-encompassing guide as well as a study of the advertising ecosystems for Twitter and Facebook. The report also included Tumblr and studied how it was becoming a blossoming medium for advertisements. BI Intelligence also studied how mobile platforms are also a vital part of social media advertising.

Unique Advertising Opportunities

While it can take some getting used to before you’re able to perfect your social media advertising strategy, you’ll undoubtedly have some unique advertising opportunities. Consider the fact that social media networks have massive user bases and equally massive databases. Not only that, but social networks also have a variety of demographics for you to explore as well as high levels of engagement. As of July 2012, Americans were logging in an average of 12 hours every month on various social media sites. When it came to 18 to 24 year olds, they averaged 20 hours.

Huge Growth Predictions

Even the most conservative of businesses are expecting substantial growth when it comes to social media advertising. BIA/Kelsey released a review back in 2013 that predicted $11 billion of spending for social media advertisements in the year 2017, increased from $4.7 billion in 2012. The truth is that social media advertising is only in its infancy, so with these predictions there’s no telling how huge social media advertising could be in five years or so. By getting started now, you can learn the ropes of advertising on social media and start to use it to its fullest potential. Strike while the advertising iron is hot.

Huge Growth Predictions

Don’t Forget Mobile Usage

Twitter and Facebook have both surpassed the 50 percent mark for mobile usage. Something to think about with this particular piece of advice is that since mobile devices will continue to increase, that percentage will increase right along with it. Mobile made up roughly 11 percent of Facebook’s total ad revenue in 2012, and that’s despite the fact that they didn’t even start mobile ads until the end of the second quarter. By the fourth quarter, it was up to nearly 25 percent. In 2013, Twitter reported that revenue for mobile ads regularly beat their revenue for desktop ads.

Twitter and Facebook

In-Stream Advertising

Last year, mobile ads on Facebook had the highest click-through rates by a large margin. Not only that, but native in-stream advertisements can easily be transferred across several electronic devices, which can’t be said of display advertisements on smaller screens. BIA/Kelsey’s forecast included mobile making up $2.2 billion of that in 2017, which is a 20 percent market share.

If you are interested in social media advertising, you may want to think about hiring a social media ad expert in order to make the most of your ads, time, and your resources.

So you’re tired of hearing that money is in the list.

I was too when I just started.

But after I started to build my list and started to reap the benefits, I knew what they meant when they said that money is in the list.

Actually, the list alone won’t do you anything, but it’s the main foundation behind any successful business nowadays.

If you ask most of the bloggers nowadays what their number 1 mistake they did, most of them will tell you that there number 1 mistake is not starting to build their email list from day 1.

So the question now is why email is that important, Why bloggers are regretting everyday they were blogging without having an email list.

That’s what I’ll dive deep into in this post, so continue reading.

Email marketing has an ROI of 4,300%

I know it’s unbelievable but it’s true. Your return on investment is 4,300%. Source.

It’s also reported that for every dollar you spend, Email marketers have an average return on investment of 52.23$. Nothing comes close, even SEO and mobile marketing. Source.

Yes, that’s why people are spending dollars upfront to build their email list, because they know they will have huge ROI after that.

But the question now is WHY? Why email marketing has an ROI of 4,300%? Why for every dollar you spend you get an average ROI of 52.23$?

Here are few reasons:

1. You can guarantee traffic for every post you create afterwords:

If you maintain your relationship with your subscribers and you constantly provide them with useful content, you’ll be able to boost your visits for every post you create from now and forever until they unsubscribe.

So every time you post a new post, you’ll see a huge spike in your traffic stats and this will help you to get your posts in front of more people with no more efforts.

You just click few buttons.

2. You could build relationship with your audience

Having the email address of your subscribers, you’ve the right to email them until they unsubscribe, but don’t annoy them.

This is a great opportunity for you to build relationship with your audience.

When you send them more emails that educate them with more cookie content they could consume, this will increase your audience trust and this is essential for you to build a sustainable lucrative business online.

The best part is that it could be automated. You could create an autoresponder and make this work on autopilot. I’ve written more about this topic here, How to Build Relationship With Your Subscribers Using AutoResponder

3. You could sell them your products

After you build a relationship with your audience and increased the trust factor, you could now sell them your products.

This will makes your job easier, because they want it. With the right offering, you could have huge conversion rates.

And the best part, is that you could sell them your products again and again.

4. You could sell other products

Don’t have the time to create the product, but you have the audience?

Why don’t you sell others products and get part of the profit? Usually, it’s 50%.

So you’re helping your audience, building relationship with the other blogger and making some good money.

It’s a win-win-win situation.

Last words:

Email Marketing is still the best way to make the maximum profit from the internet.

You’ll regret each day you don’t build an email list, so start now.

No one cares where they are reading information from on their favorite celebrity, as long as it’s a celebrity that they are interested.

So here’s an example for you…

If you had a site in the weight loss niche and were struggling to stand out from the crowd, here’s what you should do.

  1. Make a personal list of 50 experts in your niche
  2. Contact them through Twitter, blogs and email
  3. Ask them all for their one favorite tip for losing weight
  4. Compile all of the content together in one post
  5. Message everyone you included in the list and hope for them to share it

This process is nothing new and it’s being used time and time again — more importantly, it still works extremely well!

It may seem easy enough, but it actually does take a decent amount of time to compile all of the information and make it look nice in one blog post.

This is just one example of how to build your traffic and brand off the authority of others in your niche. Take a look at your niche and see what type of experts or questions you could be pulling together for your audience.

Have you dabbled with promoting a blog on social media and received sub-par results? Succeeding in social media is trickier than many first-timers think.

It takes endless reaching out, engaging content, the right photos and a little bit of luck. However, if your market is social-media-savvy, it is slightly easier.

Are you a Social Media Failure?

The worst part about social media is that people often underestimate the difficulty of the medium.

Posting a photo or status update on Facebook? Sending out a tweet? Pinning pictures? You do that all the time, what’s so hard about that?

The truth of the matter remains that using social media personally is extremely different from using social media for blog promotion.

Social Media Success

Everyone has a hit and a miss sometimes. It’s learning from mistakes and successes (yours and others) that can help create a better second round.

Check out these online business owners who made social media work for them.

  • Ruffle Social Media

Feather Your Nest is a small business based in Eureka Springs, Arkansas that specializes in vintage-esque homemade gifts — think the Etsy crowd as the target market. Owner Gina Drennon is well aware of the confined, non-social media savvy population in the town. She had to look beyond her local customer base to find success.

Drennon is active on Facebook and Twitter, but it’s the Feather Your Nest blog that really helped her tap into her customers far and away. She built relationships with other bloggers, committed herself to great content and kept an eye on the analytics. Utilizing Google tools, she knew how many hits she was getting, where browsers were staying and where she stood in sales.

  • The Social Media Blog-Cum-Business

Not all success stories start with an online business. Sometimes a blog is popular enough to generate a business for the blogger. The phenomenal success of Cake Wrecks and White Indian Housewife created a platform for the bloggers. Book deals and blog-related retail swag followed.

This is an example of what a great blog can do. Creative, digestible and unique content coupled with stunning photos (especially with Cake Wrecks) created an online community that was irresistible. Encouraging readers to participate helped build a following. The importance of content here was critical.

  • The Social Man

Personal coaching demands great social media connect. If you have a charismatic personality and that’s your selling point, run with it.

Jonathan Christian Hudson, founder of The Social Man, knew exactly what his audience wanted. Relatable, enjoyable discussions on topics that really mattered to his followers were the key.

Video is a big player in marketing and crosses over to the social media realm. Hudson recognizes that the most important factor in his success is the personalities of his team.

Sites like YouTube have helped make a bevy of coaching businesses successful from a wide variety of sites, from Hudson’s to makeup tutorials.

  • Jarvie Digital Photography

Photographers are nearly required to take full advantage of social media. Gone are the days when stunning portfolios on personal web sites were enough to drum up business. Scott Jarvie took the social media platform for photographers to another level. Of course, it helps that Jarvie is an outstanding photographer.

He uses his web site, but it’s on Facebook and Google+ where he really shines. Jarvie knows the importance of engaging his audience. Sharing his tips and resources as well as building different engagement strategies for different platforms is what made him so successful.

 Social Media Lessons for You

The fact: social media is exhausting, time consuming and always evolving. It is not easy.

However, social media is also absolutely necessary in the online world today. What’s the first thing you do when you hear about a cool product or service? Chances are you get online and look it up!

Establishing your social media foundation is generally the hardest part. People often think that implementing social media will be easy, and then get discouraged when they’re not seeing the results and engagement that they expected.

The best thing you can do when coming up with your social media strategy is to think about it as if you were a consumer. When you’re on Facebook, what ads are you attracted to? Similarly, which ads annoy you? What is it about a Facebook post that makes you click “like” or share it with your friends? All of these things can help you come up with engaging content for your own blog.

If you aim to have as much interaction and engagement as big-name brands like Coca-Cola, you’re going to be disappointed. Keep your goals reasonable.

The amount of people who “like” your page on Facebook could only be 30 people, but as long as those 30 people are purchasing your products or service, social media works!

Of the many different ways that you can monetize a blog and your audience, creating a recurring income stream with a membership site might be one of your best options. If you already have an established brand and traffic flowing through your site, it’s probably a lot easier to setup a membership site of your own for much less than you might think. More importantly, it’s not so much about the cost that is the crucial part, but instead the time that you put into your program to make sure you deliver on the quality.

This is something I have currently been working on with Blogging.org, a private community for blog and monetization training. I’ve already taken the time to create high quality videos that walk users through the process of blog monetization, creating ad campaigns and how to scale their online business over time. Through the membership site I can work with individual bloggers and online marketers on a wide scale by offering them training videos and support through the members area.

One thing however that I really know nothing about is custom design and coding, so once again the power of WordPress has made the complexities of running a membership site that much easier. Through the use of the MemberMouse wordpress plugin, I’m able to control all areas of the sites and block out restricted content from non-paying site viewers.

MemberMouse has a ton of built in features that allow you to quickly transform your WordPress site into a membership program. You can see their email, payment and API integrations below.

MemberMouse Integration

As for costs, MemberMouse is also known for their competitive rates. In comparison to many of the different programs out there, MM is far superior in quality and will only be a fraction of the cost. If you are focusing only on paid members, the price tag of $19.95 a month should be nothing.

MemberMouse Pricing

Now that we got the technical aspects out of the way, let’s talk about some of the best ways you can build a membership program based around your existing traffic or business.

Creating a Quality Product

The biggest struggle when starting a new membership based site is figuring out what exactly you will be offering to your audience. If you already have a blog that offers free content to your audience, your paid content will need to be far superior. If you are wondering if your current audience would pay for better content and a membership site, feel free to ask them.

Continue to Grow Your Brand and Following

If you have a blog that is based around yourself or your business, this probably means you already have an established brand online. With your own membership site, branding is everything. People love to associate themselves with brands and if you can provide the quality content or service that people are looking for, then they will gladly not only pay a premium for your content, but also share it with others as well.

Your Membership Pricing is Key

When it comes to the pricing structure for your site, you will have a lot of options to choose from. Will you choose a monthly membership, annually, one time or a combination of the few? The good news is that your options are limitless and you can even play around with different settings and payments to see which people prefer most.

Figure Out the Longterm Value of Each Member

Once you’ve figured out the cost of acquiring a new paid member and you know how much each member is worth, then you can almost set your marketing on autopilot. When you know your numbers are solid, you can continually market and grow your membership site while also catering to the audience that you’ve created the site for.

Follow these tips and see if a membership based site might be a good option for your blog or online business.

One of the biggest problems with people that want to get started with their own blog or online business, is that they start a blog but really have no clear direction on where they want to go with it. Unfortunately this usually ends up in the blog owner losing interest in their site, writing content and just wasting their time and efforts.

Before even registering your domain name or writing the first post for your site, you need to set clear intentions on why you are blogging in the first place. It’s very likely that the reason will fall within one of the variables below.

  1. You simply want to start a blog and see what it’s all about
  2. You have a passion and want to create a blog because it seems like a fun hobby
  3. You want to make money online and blogging seems like a good way to start
  4. You already have a business in place and are starting a blog to grow awareness

Those are four of the most common reasons for starting a blog.

Each of them needs to be addressed accordingly and in the right matter to find longterm success. However, in this article we are focusing on just a money factor.

Road To Riches

So what are some of the methods you need to look at before even starting a “for profit” blog.

Find Something People Want or Need

The first thing you are going to need to do is find something to blog about. Since we are focusing strictly on making money, this doesn’t necessarily have to be something you are passionate about… but if you can find something that fits, even better!

Is There Already Money Being Made in this Niche

Once you’ve found something worthwhile to blog about and it seems like it’s a service that people either research online, buy or need, then you are on your way. The next step is for you to see what the market currently looks like for your niche market. A good way to see if advertisers are spending money in this area is to simply search for your blog topic on Google. If you see a lot of ads within the search results, there is a good chance that your blog idea can make good money.

How Can You Target Your Audience

Now that you are on the right path and have chosen a niche topic that is something people want and advertisers are willing to spend money to get their sites and products in the face of your audience, you need to figure out how you are going to cater to that audience. One of the best ways to do this is through the use of a resource site. Just think about the last time you wanted to purchase something online… you probably did some research on this product first. If you can create enough quality content around a product or service and become a value to your audience, this is the perfect example of how to get on the right path for creating a profitable blog.

Best Ways to Monetize Your Blog to Make Money

The last step in the process is to create a solid monetization strategy for your blog — in short, how are you going to make money? Most blogs will monetize their sites through the use of on site advertising, affiliate marketing and by creating their own products. Depending on the direction you go with your site, any or all of these methods may apply. Going back to when I was talking about looking for advertisers in the search results for your specific blog topic, you can either contact these same advertisers to see if they would like to advertise on your blog or see if they have an existing affiliate program in place. The key thing here is to make sure you site has a lot of traffic and content before trying to sell ad spots on your site. You can implement affiliate marketing and your own products at any given time.

To learn more about how to create a profitable blog and building out the right path before you get started, be sure to join the blogging.org community to interact with other bloggers, see how top bloggers got to where they are today and also to work with me directly!

So you want to get 100,000 visitors to your site. Right?

You want to get anyone under the sun to visit your site. You want anyone with money to visit your blog and purchase your product.

It’s everyone’s dream when he is just starting. We want more visitors.

But that’s not the way business work, especially online. Trying to target everyone will make your marketing message diluted and won’t be effective.

This post is a very special one in the Increasing the engagement of your audience series. You’ll learn what makes people mad to buy apple products and how you could do the same. So continue reading.

Make sure to check previous posts in this series to increase the engagement of your audience:

 

What do you need to have the most engaged audience?

Getting an audience is somehow easy, you could buy traffic and have them for less than 3 cents per visitor. But having an engaged audience is a very hard process.

Did you notice how apple have the most engaged audience? People want to buy anything they release without even knowing how it is different from all the others.

Would you like to know how apple does it?

Here’s the simple key that apple used to build the most engaged audience who want to get anything they release.

You need to be crystal clear on who you want to target and alienate others, it’s how you could have loyal audience.

It’s that simple. Know your audience very well and see how you could help them and alienate others who don’t fit and won’t like what you offer.

How did Apple apply this simple key?

Back in the day, Workers at apple noticed that people don’t use their CDROM, they say they want it, but they don’t actually use it anymore. Even if they want to transfer something very important, they could use a Flash memory.

That’s why they decided to release their laptop without CDROM.

When apple released their macbook with no CDROM, people started to complain that they want CDROM.

Apple didn’t actually listen to them, if they want CDROM, then buy any of the other products out there. They thought that CDROM isn’t important and that’s their vision.

Uptill now, It’s still one of the most sold Laptops out there.

They alienated those who want CDROM and was able to build an engaged audience.

They think they’re part of a small group and that’s the key.

How to apply it?

For you, as a blogger, here’s how to apply it:

  • Have a clear image of who you want to target and try to dive into details.
  • Think about how you could make them special.
  • Ask people to subscribe to your email newsletter and treat them carefully. Make them feel they’re different from those who didn’t subscribe.
  • You could even name them like Fire Nation as John of Entrepreneur on Fire did.

It’s that simple.

Do you’ve any other tips to apply this strategy?

In fact, you should know about the intellectual property rights offered by Google before using any of their products. The claims of Google using user data and violating privacy of its members are rife in the online world. Obviously, since Google Drive also deals with user-generated content, know these intellectual property rights and clauses clearly.

The inauguration of Google Drive has led privacy advocates to severely criticize Google. The Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), Marc Rotenberg says:

“The terms of service are bad, but even worse is that Google has made it clear it will change its terms of service whenever it wishes.”

CIO expressed similar concerns:

“Privacy advocates voiced strong concerns today over how data stored on Google Drive may be used during and after customers are actively engaged in using the cloud service.”

Google Intellectual Rights Policies

On March 01, 2012, Google consolidated all its user privacy policies and terms of service into a one-page notification.

Intellectual Property Rights of Google Drive

I quote here from Google TOS about Content Copyright.

“Some of our Services allow you to submit content. You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.

When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating, promoting, and improving our Services, and to develop new ones. This license continues even if you stop using our Services (for example, for a business listing you have added to Google Maps). Some Services may offer you ways to access and remove content that has been provided to that Service. Also, in some of our Services, there are terms or settings that narrow the scope of our use of the content submitted in those Services. Make sure you have the necessary rights to grant us this license for any content that you submit to our Services.

You can find more information about how Google uses and stores content in the privacy policy or additional terms for particular Services. If you submit feedback or suggestions about our Services, we may use your feedback or suggestions without obligation to you.”

What Does the Above Content Mean in Relation to Google Drive?

  • Whenever we upload or create any files or folders on Google Drive, Google will automatically get the license to reproduce, modify and create derivative works from OUR content.
  • Not only Google, brands or service providers associated with Google gets the license to use OUR content.
  • The self-licensed content can be used by Google for public display.
  • Even if we stop using Google Drive, the information will still be used.

What Does Google Demand?

To get this license, Google demands that the users should have the permission and / or license to upload / create content on Google Drive. Well…well…don’t you think Google is going too far with this?

Positive Point

The only positive point I see in their user content policy is this line – “You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.”

Okay, so what belongs to me stays mine but who is accountable for user content modification and derivatives? Is it only me or is there someone else who thinks Google should look into its Content TOS?

What Google Does with All the Information?

With all the incoming user data, Google can use this to deliver targeted ads. After all, it is the advertisements that help make Google billions every year.

Google says its updated policies will help to deliver a more “intuitive experience” to its users.

Things you SHOULD NOT use Google Drive for:

After studying and writing on this issue, I am still going to use Google Drive but I think we will fare better if you don’t use Google Drive for these things:

  • Income Reports & Budgeting – If you are in the habit of recording earnings and expenditures on Excel, avoid uploading the same on Google Drive for privacy issues.
  • Exclusive Content – If you are writing any novel, stories or maybe just an eBook, avoid Google Drive again. You never know who is accessing those files.
  • Designs and Images – If you are a designer, Google Drive may not be the right place to store original works. Share freely available images but not your own works.

Did I miss anything? Please suggest if you feel there are things you shouldn’t be storing on Google Drive.

Google Drive Vs Other Cloud Service Providers

Other cloud service providers are no better off either. All suggest the same thing that we do have intellectual property rights on our own work but if they are on public servers, they can enjoy similar liberties as Google Drive, in which case the three pointers above indicating when Google Drive shouldn’t be used, applies to other cloud service providers as well.

Now, I would love to know your opinion. Please comment to share.
