Pimpin oneself out: We all do it!

That’s right. Everyday you do something for a little something. Now you’re probably getting up in arms over this. Well I say calm down butter cup. I have some examples.

As a blogger, I am looking for traffic, money, comments, and links exchanges with people. What do I do for that? Well I take a “walk” down internet lane and look at all the interesting ways to get “paid” and all by putting myself out there. If you look at my blog sidebar, you can see all the places that I put myself on the net. Yes as you can see I’ve been a busy girl! Like I said, pimpin’ myself out to get “paid” ain’t easy!

Now as a book reviewer for examiner.com and Thomas Nelson I am looking to not only improve my writing skills, but to also receive books to read. So what do I do for that? Well I put a little blurb on my examiner page for all prospective authors/publishers to hit me up for a review. For the Thomas Nelson reviews I put the badge on my page and request books be shipped to me to read and review. My payoff for both? I get free books, and they get free advertisement. We both are doing well.

These are my pimp out moments. Pimpn’ makes the world go ‘round!

But here are some other ways that you may think are not, but really are pimpin moments. For those who work in an office setting, you know people who pimp themselves out on a daily basis. You might even calls these people suck-ups or brown-nosers. But they are pimps. They are looking to get paid. For example, when the boss is looking for volunteers, these people always jump on the bandwagon. They cozy up to the boss by stroking his/her ego. And that person’s pay day is a raise or even recognition. Yes they too are pimps.

And what about when the tables are turned? When you are out at dinner, and your server/waiter/waitress wows you to the point that you actually give them a much bigger tip cuz they just did it for you? Yep they are pimps. Or when you get such great customer service either over the phone or in person, don’t you “pay” that person with compliments? So as you see pimpin happens both ways and in almost every situation.

What are you doing to pimp yourself out? What’s your big payoff for said pimpin?

I love how you put it "pimpin yourself". You are 100% correct though, never stop putting yourself out there. So do you have any sites particularly that work well for you?

Thats what i would really love to know. Of all the places you pimp yourself, where do you receive the most traffic back for your time?

Hello Blog Marketing! Thanks for stopping by, though the blog is in fun, it is also truth.

The most traffic I've noticed is from Link Referral, but the other entrecard and along for the ride are seriously up there. I am still on the fence with the others though they are more trickle effects. I am still waiting for blogexplosion as that is a recent acquisition so we'll see.

Bottom line none of them hurt, so all in all a win-win situation as people are finding me who'd have never found me before. So well worth it.

Dang wrote another blog entry here!
