Advertise…or Die! It’s All About Traffic
The world wide web has given us the great opportunity and freedom to do business all around the world from wherever we may happen to be, North Pole, South Pole, and anywhere in between. A connection to the internet is all that is needed. This same advantage is also available to billions of others, selling all sorts of products and services, many of which will be similar to yours.
Competition is fierce so your web site must stand out, nearly like having blinking lights on it. Because of the sheer scale of the web, unless your web site stands out and makes its presence known, your business is doomed. It’s like being out in the dessert even if your product or service is excellent. Your business has to be different from others, something has to jump out at your visitors when they visit, grab their attention so they will click on your link,” first down”.
OK, you got the site heading down the field, ya, I’m a football fan, you now need to take serious and drastic measures to promote your website. Advertising online can be done in many ways, the best of which are listed below:
E-Zines: The Magazines of the Online World
The themes are on specific subjects which are read by those interested in that particular subject. These readers are, therefore, potential customer for that product/service. Advertising your website in E-zines that are related to your business/product will almost guarantee to drive traffic to your website and help increase sales for your services/products. When advertising in E-zines, ensure that you do not advertise alongside competitors. If you can write, go for it but many cannot and it becomes time consuming.
This is an excellent method to advertise your business without the risk of having advertised in the wrong place. With this method, you advertise your website, and only pay for those clicks on the links to it. Problem here is that the clickers are not always buyers, just tire kickers. Be very careful here if you’re on a budget!
Free advertising to targeted traffic is the best esp for newcomers. Get your feet wet with this program. Try Money Line, all members are interested in making money online and it has it’s own affiliate program to increase your earning as you advertise your site or products. It does’t get any better that that.
The above is only a few methods of advertising, most I have tried. Put “free advertising” into Google Search” and just see what pops up.
