Cost effective ways to find an Alpha users to market your business

Alpha users are also online users who is having high SNP(Social Networking Potential) compared to common users which means if he post something in Facebook or other social media pages engagements on the post will be higher compared to common man posting the same post.

For example if you are posting a pic with your dog you get likes or shares less than the pic posted by a cute girl with her dog so her SNP is higher than you. Business doers need these people to promote their product to her network so they pay her some money to do it.

Established alpha users demand you more money than growing alpha users it is not feasible for bootstrapped business to approach them so here we are listing few cost effective ways to find an alpha users to market your business.

  1. Create an alpha user
Instead of going to a guy with 1lakh followers go to 10 people with 10 thousand followers.

If you approach a guy with 1 lakh followers he may demand you more because the competition is less for him but if you approach the guy with 10 thousand followers you can win him for less cost because the competition is more for him.

If you are doing education related stuff don’t find single guy for the entire idea rather find a guy from each college to promote your product though it sounds like student ambassadors program it is the best way to promote at less cost.

Don’t simply rely on cost our ultimate aim is to spread your message at less cost so analyse their SNP before roping in.

  1. Create Competition among alpha users

There are almost 10-20 alpha users in every niche so convey your message to them that you are trying to promote your product and request them to send the bidding amount the lowest one wins .By doing this you can considerably reduce more expenditure on marketing .

  1. Approach Creative works

Its need not to be a single guy you can approach a Facebook page with more likes, Google plus page with more views, YouTube channels with more subscribers. It’s not branded content marketing but you pay for them to promote your business messages.

Kindly share few other techniques on finding alpha users below.

We are constantly writing about marketing methods and strategies you can follow our facebook page for updates.

 

Branded Content marketing a marketing strategy for startups

Branded Content marketing , content marketing and Article marketing are sounds similar though all the three talks about contents about your business but there are some minor differences. Like content and Article marketing Branded content marketing also helps you in SEO ranking.

In content marketing you create contents and publish it in your site or in separate blog and in article marketing you write articles about your business or products in a third party article directories or in a local magazines related to your domain but in Branded marketing you create a content of your choice and pay to publish it in a third party sites or in a print media it’s like you are sponsoring them for publishing the content which promotes your promote.

Why you have to try Branded Content Marketing?
More you express more you get is the mantra of all the content related marketing.

You become leader: People will accept you as a leader in your domain when you create awareness about your domain, introducing new techniques, solving your potential customer’s queries. Rather than simply circulating your business messages when you come out to release articles about your product or about your niche it helps you to gain customers faith on you.

SEO score: Obviously when you increase your backlinks it will help you to increase your SEO rank than your competitor. By publishing your content some sites will provide you links to a landing page or to your home page.

Steps before you do Branded Content Marketing

Analyse the publisher: Remember it’s not like content or article marketing you have to spend some money to publish your articles so analyse your publishers background you can ask for their number of subscribers and viewers don’t go for only one publishers try two to three publishers and choose the one who is closely related with reasonable cost and with more number of subscribers.

Publishers: It’s not only your local city magazines or national magazines but also there are lot of blogs with million subscribers and million daily views. Find a blog from your niche with good million and publish your articles almost all the popular blogs are open for Branded content marketing.

Lot of influencing YouTube channels are out there with million views you can approach them to publish your content in their channels. Even social media pages influencing your audience more than your business so approach them and publish your content there more than print media blogs, Facebook pages and YouTube channels cost you less so you can save more attract more customers .

Before choosing e-media analyse their daily views report and check whether their audience are from locations where you are functioning.

Original Content: Do not do branded content marketing because your competitors are doing do it only if you can create an original content don’t copy and paste from third party sites create your very own content. You need deep knowledge in your domain before you publish content.

Like in all content related marketing you need good content writers with good knowledge or you have to dedicate time in creating content.

Doing Branded marketing will increase your sales volume coupled with other marketing strategies but don’t spend much.

Difference between Content Marketing and Article Marketing

It’s the dream of every business right from start-ups to established one to spend very little penny on marketing and to get more sales but in the digital world the dream is little bit modified they want to come up in Google’s first page to increase their sales volume. There are lot of marketing strategies to advertise at low cost in that content marketing and article marketing plays a major role. But some of the marketers are confusing with these two terms calling it same but not actually.

Content Marketing

Content Marketing is all about writing contents about your business or specific products and publishing it in your site which will help your viewers to understand your product better.

You can publish it in separate blog or host it in your own site I prefer the later which will help you to increase your SEO score.

Article marketing

Article marketing is all about creating a content about particular topic from your domain and publishing it in article directories or in local magazines.

For example: If you are a digital marketing agency  and there is a local magazine in your city writing about digital marketing with 1 million subscribers you can contribute articles related to digital marketing for free they will publish it with your company name and author name if it is e-magazine they will provide link to your site also. They help you to reach one million.

This will create impact among their readers that you are leader in this domain they believe you and approach you for their marketing solutions thereby you can improve your business.

It’s not only for business but also for authors they can write an article related to their genre, bloggers can also participate in guest blogging in established websites which could bring them good number of audience to their site.

Both Content marketing and Article marketing improve your SEO score and helps you to get good rank.

Challenges in Content marketing and Article marketing

1.You have to spend more time on creating quality content for that you need deeper business or product knowledge.

2.If you are busy in other part of your business you have to employ a content writer which will increase your marketing cost.

3.Your competitor from the same city can approach the same article directories.

4.Your content may be stolen and can be published in some other sites.

5.Due to increase in demand your article distributor may charge you for publishing your articles.

Lots of online article directories are there select respective one for your business in Google.

How we did viral campaign?

It’s the dream of business owners to make their brand viral which is difficult to do amidst competition earlier they did with the help of influencers with mouth marketing and through traditional ways of promoting in Television but the advent of social networks made easy to reach your respective audience. You need not to pay huge or to approach any digital marketing agency all you have to do is to present simple and effective contents related to your business .So here I am submitting the work I done in Viral campaign.

They won’t share your business messages simply because you reached them through paid campaign.

Content is the king but a normal user never share the poster unless it motivates him. So don’t simply share your business messages tell him something interestingly related to your business.

For example if you are running online grocery store make a poster of how man bought groceries 100 years before with pictures else make your own Photoshop picture. Tell him which he doesn’t know but simple. Make more pictures from history create video or image with influencers of respective niche related to your industry that will excites him.

Make use of big platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter to do viral campaign it will be easy to reach more people .Social Medias never promote your content it’s the user who circulate it so attract him.

We also tried to promote our SocialTalky’s Facebook page(News/media website) to FB users but we couldn’t make big so we gone for paid promotion one day we thought of doing viral campaign so we collected some posters related to our domain which is news and media and mostly we write about celebrities, lifestyle, marketing, money making .So we created a poster like this

 

viral campaign

We found Abdul Kalam’s Anna University Visiting card where he worked in his early stage and created a poster Which attracted huge audience and still doing well people are sharing it to their friends and we are getting more reach and likes for our viral campaign poster.

If you want to get 50(appx) likes for a page you have to spend 100(appx) rupees in paid promotion but we got 250 new likes and growing because of this viral campaign.

You can also invite the people who likes your poster by clicking on the likes, a popup will display and you can invite them to like your page which is an additional boost for you. By doing this you can save more money and reach more people.

All you have to do is to find the content that will interest your audience and avoid promoting simple business messages.

It’s not only in Facebook follow this in all the major platform. You can put more efforts in Pinterest if you are targeting women audience.

PetzApp for your pets

As per statements from Indian Pet Industry India is the fastest growing pet capital with 600,000 pets adopted every year. This numbers simply showing us how much Indians love pets but do they know right way to bring up their pets ? Do they know the best vet in the city? Do they understand their pet medical reports? Do they know pet events happening in the city? Do they know how to socialize their pets? To give solution to all these question Prathap Premnath the Chennai based guy founded Petzapp for your pets where you can find solution for all the queries related to your pets. When socialTalky fired  questions and he replied smartly for all our shit questions.

What is PetzApp?

PetzApp is a Pet Management mobile platform which aims to simplify the pet parenting process where pet needs can be fulfilled by clicking a single button. Via PetzApp, a pet parent can schedule appointments with vets, check billing activity, maintain digital pet medical records, ask online queries to vets from the comfort of your home, track pet events, schedule pet service appointments with vets, groomers, and boarders, adopt pets, and socialize with fellow pet parents. It works in tandem with VetzApp which enables vets to automate all operations at the clinic. It helps vets in appointment scheduling, billing, digital pet medical records, inventory solutions (tracking sales), online query resolution, and client activity tracking.

What motivated you to found PetzApp?

As a business graduate and even before, I was always entrepreneurially inclined. There was a period in time when I saw a gap in the market which was not penetrated by technology and frankly had a lot to gain by adopting it. Hence I came up with the idea of the dual apps – PetzApp and VetzApp to bridge this gap. It aims at becoming the leader in the USD 800 million Indian Pet Market which has a dearth of technology service providers.

What makes you unique?

While there is no direct competition in the clinic automation software market for vets separately, there are companies doing great work in the generic doctor market in this same sphere. While focus on vet-specific features, lower cost, and an offline capability for inventory and billing are some advantages, these are not viewed as sustainable.

However given the flexibility attached with a smaller company we can challenge the bigger ones by offering a platform which is inward focused on clinics where doctors can feel assured that their client database remains with them and they don’t have to compete in a marketplace for business. While other platforms attract clients with the listing of these doctors and compare different doctors, VetzApp has a unique Vet Code which it prompts the user to enter and hence vets can use it with only their clients without the client getting exposure to other doctors.

Why pet lovers should install PetzApp?

If you have a pet, he or she is sure to be an integral part of your life. PetzApp is an easy to use app which helps one save time and manage pet parenting more efficiently. It also enables transparency as many pet parents needn’t depend on domestic help anymore and can get all they want for their pet via a click of a button. Hence the benefits of this app, which is unparalleled among Indian apps is what we expect to shine through.

What is your future plans on PetzApp?

We are launching an e-commerce module which will help clients view the products which their vet in specific is retailing. They can place an order on PetzApp and get it delivered to their doorstep. Also from the business angle expanding the user base on PetzApp will be critical.

Please kindly share your suggestions on PetzApp to refine their knowledge on the market.
