This isn't easy. No one wants to be spammed. Let's imagine you are a member (or moderator) of a large boat owner's group. How could you mention Talkspot without it looking like you are spamming? We do not want anyone promoting our service in a tacky way. That doesn't make us look good or make you money.
The best is usually just to use Talkspot as a way of sharing information with the group when something occurs that feels like it could showcase a feature of Talkspot.
- Talkspot has a great polling feature, so from time to time I create ad hoc polls on Talkspot and share the results with the group.
- Talkspot is good for sharing documents, so if I have a series of PDFs I want to share, I upload them to Talkspot and add a page to my website with the information.
- You can create a website with us and then start a blog to post articles about interesting topics. Then you can use our blogging system to post your blog article on Facebook and other social media channels. When the blog articles shared are clicked on it will link back to your website ... you can place one of your partner ads on your blog page that will be seen every time someone clicks on one of your shared blog articles.
Normally, a Talkspot website is NOT required, but in this particular case, the best way to get others to convert is to find ways to showcase Talkspot which are indirect.
All that said, there are sometimes opportunities to put personal messages on your profile. You could put something like "www.your-name.com (website by talkspot) " and link it in a way to get partner credit. If your personal website is on Talkspot and looks awesome, this could get some sign ups.
Or .. maybe a supplemental website for the group which has the group regulations, welcome letters, etc? Or .. ask people to register so that you can send them newsletters from time to time (this might be the best idea!)
Additionally, you can add partner links to your high traffic Facebook and LinkedIn pages. Here are instruction on how to do so.
