This is a great post! I see these widgets all the time and never thought about the traffic that they are generating. What I really like about this approach to generating traffic is that the focus is on creating quality content AND paying attention to what your audience responds to. Combined with the reach involved, this is a very powerful combination."
Yeah, that human touch is very important. With time becoming a premium asset, there's been a lot of emphasis on outsourcing and automation lately. Though you may be able to accomplish more with these strategies, you'll lose a precious opportunity to connect with your market.

This off-line "marketing" can enhance the promotion and outreach of online businesses as well."
Lack of focus is definitely a big problem... You do need to primarily focus on what you are good at- especially these days given all the competing noise out there, and you need to have a laser-like focus on your target market. Otherwise, you're right, you'll be throwing away those marketing dollars."

Hi Teepu, I know what you mean about those LinkedIn groups... That's why you have to search for the quality ones because not all of them are like that. Some are actually closed to the public and you must apply to be accepted. These are usually moderated and have better quality posts and interaction. But I've had great experience even on some of the public ones."
