What your new on the web business needs is to be promoted using several effective on the web marketing techniques. These methods will not require you to break the bank to get good on the web exposure for your company. You do not need to go overboard with your marketing expenses in order to have your on the web business get recognized.

There are any easy and affordable methods to boost your on the web presence that do not require you to spend more than you can afford. These methods are not immediate though, they’ll require any patience and work to get your results.

First thing is first, you will need a website to showcase your services or products. You can either design one yourself or hire a web developer for the work. From there it is all in the promotion.

Get Links – You need to achieve a good ranking in search engines for terms related to your website. This can be achieved with good link building. Strategies include reciprocal linking, building quality content and quality directory listings.

Publish Articles – by writing and publishing quality content both on your site and by submitting to article directories you will gain good back links to your site and give spiders more content when they search your site. That will increase your search engine rankings.

Use Affiliate Marketing – Form a network with other websites to boost the targeted traffic to yours. This should mean links to your site via ads on others in the same niche. That will provide a certain amount of targeted traffic to your site, but will cost you the commissions of affiliate sales.

Distribute Newsletters – By sending newsletters with content relevant to your website to clients that are wanting in your niche you can boost traffic and repeat sales. This will help you establish ongoing relationships with clients. Newsletters should be short and to the point to get a good readership.

Forums – By participating and posting good content on forums that deal with topics related to your websites products and services you can form relationships with those in the same field with the same interests. This can result in sales and ongoing affiliate relationships. Plus you get the added bonus of being able to place links in your signature area of the posts you make.

Email Marketing – This is a touchy subject as if you do it in a spamming or intrusive manner it can drive potential clients away. When done properly it can generate sales and traffic to your site. What you want to make sure you do is provide content in the email that’s valuable to the receiver. Not doing so can generate complaints, blocked email addresses and angry customers. Best approach I’ve seen with this is by using voluntary opt in email lists.

By using these strategies to get your marketing program in place and consistently applying them into the future, you can gain the results you are looking to achieve. Just remember that good marketing may have a starting point, but it does not have an ending point. It is a continual cycle that builds upon itself over time.

You have probably heard a lot about social bookmarking lately. As a matter of fact, you can spend hundreds of dollars right now just to find out what it is all about. Well, not here. I am giving you this information. I did the research and found this to be a super way to get more traffic to your site. The best news is, it is 100% FREE.

What is Social Bookmarking?

It’s a public list of your favorites. Not all your favorites, just the favorites you need to share with others. You can add any website to your public list and retrieve it from any computer. (This is done on someone else’s server, not your computer)

When you list a site in your bookmark list, anyone looking for that same type of info can do a search at the bookmark site and find the sites that you have bookmarked. It is like a search engine without all the trash.

When you do a search in a search engine, you get all the sites that have something to do with the keywords you typed into the search box. It is easy to get a bunch of garbage sites that are loaded up with keywords but have poor content on the actual site.
The good thing about social bookmarking sites is the only sites you will find there are sites that other people have looked at and decided were worth saving for future reference. Real people have decided to save (bookmark) the sites, not robots. Real people also monitor the sites so if trash does get added, it is soon deleted.

The more people who bookmark a site, the more popular it becomes. As an example, lets say you are selling widgets for a really good price. You bookmark your home page on many public bookmarking sites. When someone is looking for a widget, they do a search at the bookmarking site and your bookmark comes up. They go look at your site and decide your prices are so good, they might need to come back later when they need another widget. So they add your site to their bookmarks for future reference.
When someone goes to one of these sites and types widgets into the search box, your site listing will come up in the search. If many people have bookmarked your site, you will be listed high in the search results. It’s kind of like a voting system. If you site is good enough to bookmark, other people will need to see what all the fuss is about.

Unlike search engines where all you have to do is good seo, the sites you will find in the Social Bookmarking sites are quality sites that other people enjoyed enough to save. You don’t really have to have a good site to get listed in the search engines.

How do you get started?

Do a search for social bookmarking, many sites will come up. Go to each site and register for an account. It’s FREE! Once you have your account set up, start listing your site. Make sure you add proper tags to your listing.

Tags are the same as keywords with a twist. These sites will tell you what the most desired searches are on their site. You choose the tags that will work with your site or page and are also part of the popular list. Several of the sites will also offer a location to write a small description of the site you are bookmarking. Add a description that uses any of your tag words for added benefit.

Building popularity

As with anything that is worth doing, this will take you a while to get it all set up and running smooth but the end result will be very well worth your effort.

Start with one bookmarking site and one page from your site. (Start with your squeeze page and build your newsletter list) Set up your account with the bookmarking site and add your page to the bookmarks. Make sure you use the best tags and description you can. (Check the popularity list on the site) Doing this in itself will help you get more traffic. Now you can go one step further and work both sides of the system.

Add a link to your site that will lead back to the bookmarking site that has your page bookmarked. Ask your visitors to bookmark your site on the social bookmarking site.

My example is below
Bookmark my site at Blinklist. com and access it from any computer, anytime. Create a link to the bookmarking site so your visitors only have to click.

You need to make sure the page opens in a new window so when your visitors are done setting up their account, they will still have your page handy to bookmark.

Next Page

Now move on to the next page. You will need to offer a different bookmarking site on each page. Why? So you can get as many bookmarks on as many sites as possible. Use the same info in the example above but change the social bookmarking site you are promoting.

Won’t this look odd to your visitors? No. Most people will ignore the suggestion once they have bookmarked your site. They will not even recognize that you have changed the name of the link. They will see, Bookmark my site, and think, “I already did that”, and they will move on.

Final Note:

Don’t SPAM the sites. Make sure what you are listing is relevant and useful. You don’t need to bring traffic to a page that has nothing but links, you will probably get banned form the bookmarking site. Only bookmark your pages that have actual content. Ask yourself if you would truly add this page to your own favorites list? If your answer is no then don’t list it.

You might think that you have a product or a service that you sell in your home business that actually sells itself – therefore you don’t need to worry about setting a budget, or advertising, because as soon as you start your business you are going to be bringing in the cash and you are going to find that you don’t have to work very hard. If you think this, chances are pretty good that you are deceiving yourself, because this is simply not the way that it goes with a home business. If you need the best chance of success, you are going to need to start with advertising, and you are going to need to always continue to be advertising, no matter how successful you think you are.

Choose A Type

When you begin to do advertising for your home business, you are going to have a decision to make. There are several types of advertising, and you have to decide which of them is going to benefit you. The differences in them are what makes them good for one business and bad for the next. The two main types of advertising that you might be thinking about would be either online or world-wide-web advertising, or local advertising. In order to decide which type of advertising is going to work best for you, the first decision that you have to make is where your target audience is. If your home business is something local, like a day care or hairdresser, or something that relies on local customers, you are going to need to focus on localized advertising. However, if you are selling a product that can be shipped any where, or doing some kind of service that you can do from you home, you are going to benefit more from having world-wide-web or online advertising. This is because you can have a business that is always open and ready to receive customers this way, and you can find that this is very rewarding and also going to be very beneficial for you.

No matter what you think, advertising is going to be benefit you because advertising is the only way that your idea, your product, or your service can get into the hands of the general public. You aren’t going to be able to make the money on your own ,and so you are going to have to rely on advertising to get the word out about you and about what you are looking for. By using advertising in a smart and correct manner, you are going to help build the infrastructure of your business, and be way more successful in the long run. It is simply the best way to go about it.

Extra extra read all about it!

Article writing has become a very important piece to the overall aspect of SEO and Internet Marketing. Providing solid information and how to advice for readers can convert traffic to your website while creating an expert status about you and your business.

Keep in mind that Article Marketing is not an ad, so you can not just start writing about how great your product or service is but rather supply helpful informative content for readers.

Here is were the true importance of Article Marketing comes in to play, IT IS VIRAL! Supplying this content for other webmasters to use on their websites and visitors can create a viral marketing affect.

Here is how:

Because search engines like Google love new content and seems to award websites that constantly update their website with new fresh content. Webmasters have taken notice of this fact not only for search engines but for their visitors, giving them fresh information will give them more reason to come back to there website. This makes your articles valuable to them and other website owners are on the hunt for your articles.

How do articles placed on other websites generate traffic to me?

Traffic is generated to your website from your signature box. At the button portion of your article is an area, which you dedicate for a signature line. This is were you can place a small but powerful message about your self and your business, almost like a text ad. Your signature line will contain atleast one active text link to your website which convert traffic to your website.

How do webmasters find my articles?

Article Marketing can be done through article distribution websites. These are websites that not only list your article themselves but also are places that provide your articles to other website owners for free as long as they include your signature. There are hundreds of these article distribution sites so one article if written with powerful headline and riveting copy could truly generate high amounts of traffic for a extended amount of time.

Note: Article Marketing is a great way to build your link popularity fast as other websites list your information, your signature line contains that ever important link.

Example: If your write three articles and distribute it to 120 distribution websites and it is picked up by 4 webmasters from each distribution site and even if each website only supplies 6 hits to your site per mo your article marketing could convert over 8,400 hits per month. This is very realistic. Now imagine putting out dozens of articles on a regular basis, your traffic and link popularity could be amazing

SEO, or search engine optimization, is a term that covers a lot of ground. It involves link building strategies, branding, blogging, onsite optimization, ppc, and much more.

Under link building and branding, article marketing comes into play. You can write articles or have them written for you by a ghostwriter. Once you have the article content, you can submit them to thousands of article directories.

Several people think article marketing stops there. It doesn’t. Article directories that accept and reprint your articles are not where your link popularity comes from.

These article directories provide free content to webmasters and bloggers for their website. When these people use your article, the links in your author bio section lead to your website. The websites or blogs they are reprinted on are ususlly going to be relevant to your website and the links from there are valuable in most cases.

That is where good link popularity comes from article marketing. This also means that your articles need to be something someone would want to post on their website. That means that all the garbage articles that contain bad grammar and are just stuffed with keywords have absolutely no value at all.

You can go to a freelance website and find people whoever say they’ll write seo articles for you for $5, $3, and even $1. 50 per article. They mostly live someplace where a dollar goes a long way and they know nothing about article writing or article marketing whatsoever.

The articles they write for you are worth nothing. Whatever you paid for them is money thrown away. The links you get from article directories are not going to help you. Article Directories are not there to give you link popularity. They are there to provide good quality free content to webmasters and bloggers whoever need reprint material.

Webmasters and Bloggers are not going to reprint garbage articles on their website.

You have to pay more for quality content. That is the bottom line. Article Marketing, when done correctly can get you a lot of traffic and help you build link popularity. Done improperly, it’s a waste of your time and money.

One well-written, informative article can bring you more traffic and link popularity than 100 garbage articles.

In addition to the benefits of having a professional write the articles for you is that the content might get picked up by websites with a high Google page rank and websites with a lot of targeted traffic.

People will read a good article all the way to the bottom where your links are and click on those links. They will stop reading a garbage article before they even notice your links at the bottom.

Think of your own reading habits. Do you finish an article that is poorly written or one that bores you to tears? Of course not and neither will your likely customers.

And article marketing can help you with branding your name or your company name. People want to deal with people they perceive as an expert in their field. By having quality articles with your byline and company name in them that may be found through searches for your name helps build your reputation as an expert.

Hiring a professional ghostwriter is the key to getting quality articles that will bring you more traffic, help build your brand, and help you build link popularity.

Nothing is more exciting than starting your own Internet marketing business. So much to do, so much to learn, so much to. . . well, face it, there is so much to do that at times it may be almost nerve racking.

All Internet marketers get into Internet marketing to make fast money, but, they do so thinking they will not have to spend any money to do it. Nothing may be further from the truth. If you are going to have an Internet marketing business, you are going to have to have capital and expense money just as you would for any brick and mortar business.

What’s nice is that there really are a lot of Internet Marketing Strategies to promote and advertise your new Internet marketing business that will not bust the bank.

Here are any simple, cost effective methods any Internet marketer can use to increase your business visibility and for a minimum cash outlay. Before I get into any of these areas, you must remember, it takes time to build and expand your Internet marketing business or businesses. Don’t get discouraged if after a few days or weeks you aren’t getting results you think you should. It takes time, be patient, be persistent and most of all be serious about your new Internet marketing business.

The first thing you must have is a website. You can build one yourself, hire someone to build it for you or join one or more of the many Internet marketing programs that will build and host your website. Regardless of what you choose, if you are to succeed in Internet marketing you will need your own website.

The strategies below will assist you in attaining quality traffic to your site and making your first of many sales. Best of luck in your new Internet marketing venture.

1. Write Informative and Relevant Articles

The best way to get quality links and responsive traffic to your site is to write articles for your website and the products that you are selling. Research your products, write an article on each product or service that you are promoting. Be informative, don’t try and sell the product in your article. Let the sales page do the selling for you. At the bottom, put an “about author” box with ONE LINK back to your sales page or website. Sit back, let nature and the article directories do their thing and in a matter of days you will start seeing fresh and unique traffic to your site.

2. Get Back Links To Your Site

While you will get any good quality back links to your site from the articles you have written, you should consider link exchanges with other relevant sites. The more relevant links to your site, the more popular the search engines will perceive it. Link exchanges take time to do, and they take time to be indexed. However, like anything worth doing, it’s worth the time and effort if you really want your business to succeed. Search the Internet for Link Exchange Programs and find the one that best fits your budget.

3. Building Your List With Your Newsletter

Virtually every Internet marketing business has a “newsletter” for visitors to subscribe to. This is absolutely key to your success. If someone signed up for your newsletter, you already know they are interested in your product. If used properly, your newsletter could be your greatest asset and bring you in more money than you could ever imagine. You must use this tool to promote other products and services to your “List”. You already have their attention, so use this tool wisely. Don’t over send to them or they may feel you don’t respect them and they will just unsubscribe. Make sure your newsletters offer them quality information, new products, send them to your blogs, and YES. . . you should always insert at least ONE SALES LINK. As long as they view a sales link in every email, they know you will always try and sell to them. If they are interested, they will click on it. If they aren’t, they won’t.

4. Join Quality Internet Marketing Forums

While searching for a forum, keep in mind that Forums ARE NOT a place to sell your products. At least not directly! Forums are basically Internet marketing “chat rooms”. The people whoever go to these Forums do so to meet like minded people, learn new Internet marketing techniques and skills, and yes, many of the individuals in this forum are similar to you. . . . Internet marketers. Spend time in a forum, respond intelligently to posts, and provide relevant information. When you are perceived as someone with knowledge, you will gain their trust and respect. Use an authorized “signature” where you can put a link or two for your products or websites. This is an excellent means of learning the business and even finding partners if you so desire.

5. Affiliate Marketing

This is by far the easiest way to get into Internet marketing. Join a quality affiliate marketing program. Here you will probably get free websites, eBooks, products, virtually anything you will ever need to “start” a business. As you progress in your learning and in your Internet marketing skills, you may begin to build your own sites, your own products and start your own affiliate marketing program. As I stated, this is the easiest way to start your career, but, there are a lot of scams and unreliable Internet marketers out there. Take your time, learn about the program, search the Internet for info on the marketer and the program. One thing I have always liked to do is check if it’s a SCAM. The easiest way to do this is to type the name of the program you are interested in and then SCAM at the end. Something like this:

ABC MARKETING SCAM. If there is anything on this program, the search engines will find it. You will have eliminated a bad program or possibly found exactly what you want in an Internet marketing program. Either way, always do your research.

If you have been trying to get traffic to your site without paying for it, you must know by now that participating in online communities is one of the best ways. There are many different types of online communities that you can join and most will help you get a certain amount of traffic to your site. For this article, I will focus on only three types. Most commonly, new webmasters try to promote their website by subscribing to an online forum or a news site such as Slashdot or Digg. In addition, there are two other overlooked communities that can help you drive lots of traffic to your website and that includes social search engines and social bookmarking sites.

When it comes to using an online forum or news site as part of your marketing campaign it is important that you remember the most essential rule and that is, do not spam. Make sure that you are actively participating in the discussion and that you are not there just to promote your website. Many of these forums such as Slashdot and Digg use a moderation system that allows other users to give your posting such a low score that the vast majority of people will never see it. This is what will happen to you if you spam the forum other than of course getting banned all together. If you ad meaningful comments to a discussion, other users will become interested in what else you have to say and they will visit your website either via your signature or your profile.

In addition, social search engines have, recently, been gaining popularity. The internet consists of billions of websites and dishonest webmasters have been busy keyword optimizing their sites just to profit from Adsense. It has become very difficult for surfers to find the most relevant sites to their queries. Even Google’s results even though the best compared to other search engines often are not the most relevant. In an effort to avoid this clutter, web users are coming together in social search engines such as Rollyo. com to create a searchable collection of websites with useful content. If you are a webmaster and you want to promote your content rich site and your search engine optimization is not working then you might want to consider submitting your website to one of these social search engines.

Finally, social bookmarking sites such as del. icio. us are becoming very popular and you can definitely use them to promote your site. In social bookmarking, you store links to your favorite websites online so you can access them from any computer that you are using. Most importantly, you can make your collection of links public so that others can also use them. In addition, you specify a set of tags for each link that you submit. You and other web surfers can use these tags to search for links of similar interest to their own. This is how you can promote your site. Simply bookmark your site and tag it with the most relevant keywords. Then, when other people search using these keywords, your site will come up and they might pay you a visit. If people enjoy your website, they might bookmark it themselves increasing the chances that others will come across it.
