Wow. According to ComScore:

- The average Internet user views more than 2,000 display ads on social networking sites each month
Great data to support creating an advertising program to push link marketing campaigns.
Develop ads to drive people to your content/blog; once they are there, capture email addresses and ask for the link at the end of each article.
Offer incentives as a way to sweeten the “link to us deal” and include social media buttons so visitors can share what they find on your site.
From the looks of the ComScore data, Facebook is the place to advertise at the moment but don’t stop there. Ask (survey/poll) your customers about their online surfiing habits and advertise on these sites as well. They don’t all have to be “Facebook” types, smaller more niched sites work and send targeted customers at a lower price.
Use popular advertising channels to push people to your site and hook them with a clever link marketing program once they are there!
