Buy Diggs

By Alexa Darver

If you're a small business owner looking at advertising online, you'll know that prices for traditional means of advertising are soaring above the means which are attainable to some. Because of this, many entrepreneurs are now looking for ways to advertise which are effective, but that don't have the hefty costs of PPC, banner and other forms of marketing.

While it's not thought of as exactly ethical by many in the online marketing world, buying votes on social bookmarking sites like Digg and StumbleUpon is now extremely common practice with sites like offering such a service.

The reason that buying social bookmarking votes has become so popular is simply because the cost compared to traditional means of advertising is slashed. For example, it can cost up to $50,000+ to get 100,000 PPC visitors to your site, whereas a site like uSocial can generate the same results in some cases for as little as $200-$300. You should be able to see that's a massive saving.

Most sites offering these kinds of services only sell votes with Digg, however several also sell votes on others like StumbleUpon, Propeller, Reddit and even Yahoo! Buzz. If you're looking for versatility, you'll just need to look around a little.

So, should you buy Digg votes? Well, that's up to you. Though it's a practice I've been using for months now and it's slashed my advertising budget many, many times! - 16651
