Marketing your online business is going to cost you, either in time or money.The good news is that the money you use to market your online business should return a profit. If you do this successfully, you really won’t be out of pocket very long. And if you’re smart, the profits that come in from your marketing efforts will go back into more marketing. In this way you can build a very successful online business quite quickly.Time is money, and if you don’t have money to advertise your new online business you will have to devote your time into doing as much free advertising as you can.Here are three actions guaranteed to to get traffic to your site:
Placing free ads in online classifieds
Posting ads on message boards
Joining and posting in online business and income opportunity forums
These are just a few of the free ways you can begin marketing your online business. And they all work. They all work, if you do them consistently. And that really is the key; talk to any successful online marketer who started with nothing and invariably they will tell you they did one or more of the above actions on a daily basis to market their program, online business opportunity, MLM company, affiliate business, etc.So what you need to do to make them work for you?
To place free ads in online classifieds, start with Craig’s List, then head over to Google, type in “online classifieds”, find a few others, and post as many ads as time allows. You may not be allowed to post the same ad more than once on a given day, so put a bunch of ads and headlines together and mix them up. This way you can post 50 different ads the same day (should take about 20 minutes) once you’ve created the ad bodies and ad titles.Posting ads on message boards is similar to promoting your online business through classifieds. Google and MSN both have message boards you can post on, plus there are many others on the net. Make sure you only post on public message boards (those will be seen by more people). You can post the same ad to over and over, so simply use copy and paste and post 20 to 50 a day.Promoting your online business through forums is a little different, because you will actually need to answer questions and pose questions, using your signature-line as your add. The trick here is to actually get involved. First find forums pertaining to online business opportunities. Next, read the posts, answer peoples questions, ask questions, etc. Once you are known in the forum people will start checking out your signature-line link. A great source of new prospects.it may take some effort before you start seeing the rewards of your efforts, but if you want to successfully market your online business opportunity and you have no money for advertising, these are the things you need to be doing.
