What is a Love BombAccording to Wikipedia, "Love bombing is an attempt to influence a person by lavish demonstrations of attention and affection." We all need to be love bombed every so often and sometimes we need to love bomb someone else. One way to do this internet style is to love bomb someone's website. Maybe there is an organization that you like, or a person's blog that you thing is super, they why don't you takea moment to love bomb their website.
Love bombing a website can be done in three easy steps. And I am going to demonstrate how it is done by using my most recently published website. We just launched the brand new website for Institute for Principle Studies. Don't know who they are? Then go check them out at their website at PrincipleStudies.org.
Love Bomb the FirstWhile you are there checking them out take the time to Facebook like, Google +1 and Tweet about the site. This is the most basic ways to love bomb a website. To be honest as Much as people love Mike Winther and his organization he has not received very much love from them. There has been an IPS webstie up for several years, come on 139 FB likes, one Google +1, and ONE TWEET. Get serious. If you have benefitted from Mike Winther's teaching and have not liked his page fully then now is your chance to remedy this. For extra credit you can share the love and click on the Facebook Share Button and post something to you facebook timeline about the site.
Love Bomb Part DeuxThe second phase to love bombing a website is to seek them out on other social media sites and give them great ratings, likes and whatnot. Even though you have Facebook liked IPS on their website, you are still going to need to do more. You need to find their actual Facebook page and like them there as well. IPS Can be found at https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Institute-for-Principle-Studies/144304731695. There they have over 400 likes, much better but still not enough.
Another critical site that many people never think of is Yelp. This is less important than Facebook for an organization like IPS but more important for a local business. In any case Mike does wonderful work and the local community should know about it! Write a review of IPS here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/institute-for-principle-studies-modesto. There are many other social media sites so for extra credit you can find some of these and like or review the site there.
A Love Bomb Hat TrickNow for the coup de grâce the final blow of the love bomb. If you have a blog or a website create a link to the website you are love bombing. One of the most important things for how Google ranks web sites is the number of incoming links they have. Each link you create from your webpage or blog (within reason of course) increases the website you are love bombing's reputation on the web, it also allows people to find the website and increases traffic to the site.
Going Nuclear BabyA traditional bomb is a very powerful thing, but the power of can never equal the power of many. A nuclear bomb starts with a very small set of reactions among a few atoms within the initial fuel, but soon these have affected their neighbors and so on and so on.
So, like a bad shampoo commercial from the 80s you tell two friends and they tell two friends and so on and so on. This is of course the power of social networking, things can spread like wild fire and they often do.
One more way you can practice this principle is to do the same for this article and website if you found it useful. And if you need a website that is ready and able to harness the power of social media, give us a call today we would be happy to help you.
