Marketing for Memebership website

6 replies
I`d like to take a moment to introduce myself since I haven`t already

My name is Kloud Strife and 50% newbie to the WP. I first joined this Forum in 2006 under the user name Jessejaymes but did not post much, I was mainly a longtime lurker up until now.

In 2007, I first tried IM trying to write articles on Enzine and get traffic to go to my `Relationship advice` niche that ultimately failed horribly

I invested in article writers that only ended up being article spinning programs ran by some scam artist

I quit IM for a few years and spent a good 4 years looking for a decent job but the city I live in has a bad economy.

Fast forwarding to 2014

Now I`m a student in my 3rd year in Digital Media and specialize in Web Design and Graphic Design as well as some programming

In the Internet marketing world, My main niche right now is in the video game realm, as I`m currently working on a membership only video game website to promote my particular services in that niche.

I`ve been working on the website on this since summer 2013 and will be launching it in the fall.

I have the splash temp page up, with an email prompt and was wondering whats the best way to build a list of emails right now through marketing.

I understand you can post content on social media and drive it to the splash page, however I`m looking into other marketing ideas....I want to start doing something to market it before the end of the week and I have some money to invest in it. What should my marketing strategy be at this point

      Thanks. I was thinking the same thing. Question is where to buy and who is legit enough

    Hi Kloud,
    sorry to hear of your experiences re: Article spinners-it is actually difficult to find authentically gifted writers and those that make a name charge accordingly. I used to offer my writing skills, but I actually don't like commercial writing very much. Now, your gaming site, list building-you could invest in the new SMS based client capture platform, expensive but much higher response rates than email. Have you seen the 'Game Academy' a genuine gaming entrepreneur runs it-they might be worthwhile talking to re: marketing strategies: gameacademy.com
    Cheers

      Are you talking about SMS blasting...whats a rough estimate on how much that would cost. A marketing friend of mine and I were chatting earlier and she said I would be able to get tons of traffic through instagram especially
