Question by zoe: What are the best ways to promote a website for free on the web?
I have a website, a pretty good one, and was wondering the best ways to get nationwide exposure. I don’t have an advertising budget right now so my efforts would have to be free. Anyone out there been in the same boat or know what I can do? I’ve submitted to the search engines and some online directories. I’d like to be able to advertise by radio or cable by late August/Sept. but need money for that. Any rich people out there willing to help me?

Answer by Asher Heimermann
You could advertise on my website (www.AsherHeimermann.com). I charge $ 15/month for a banner on my website or $ 10/month for a link on the Marketplace page. My website adverages well over 1,500 visitors per month and 95% of the traffic comes within the United States of America. For 2008, my website had over 24,000 visitors. Contact me thru my website for more information.

Good luck.

It really depends on your budget. You can use pay per click advertising in the search engines to reach audiences looking for your products. You can use Google Adwords http://www.google.com/adwords or Yahoo http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $ 650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News.

5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

What are the best ways to advertise your Website?

Question by Roland: What are the best ways to advertise your Website?
Question about Adwords google?

I had an onsite-PC Repair biz last year and I advertised on adwords google spent a LOT of money with only clicks no conversion. I want to start a new business related to PC repair. What do you guys will suggest? Local newspaper ad? adwords again with a better website? I can’t afford yellow pages too expensive. Thanks for your suggestions.

Best answer:

Answer by imisidro
PPC like Adwords is good, but it can be very expensive for small businesses.

I suggest doing some shoestring strategies in combination with local marketing efforts such as getting listed in local directories. Check out community newspaper advertisements as they are mostly cheaper than the bigger newspapers

Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.
