The only way to make money online if you’re selling products with a website is to promote it in as many ways as possible. One problem many people face is finding advertising funds to market online. In this article let’s go over a few ways you can promote on the Internet if you are working with a small advertising budget.
1. Email marketing. I like this for a long term strategy because as your list grows you can potentially increase your income with every email message you send out.
It doesn’t take a lot of money to run an email marketing campaign. You will need an autoresponder. I personally use Aweber which runs a little under $20 a month.
You will need to promote a landing page in various ways. There are plenty of free and low-cost ways to promote these type of webpages. Traffic exchanges are one way I have had good luck building my list with splash pages.
You can also purchase of co-registration leads. This is a good way to let a lead company build your list for you at an affordable price.
2. Twitter and Facebook. These are the two largest social networking sites and a good way for you to promote things online.
If you enjoy interacting with other people on the Internet social networking is a good way to promote things. This doesn’t cost you much in the way of advertising dollars, but it will take up some of your time.
You can also purchase inexpensive ads and target specific markets. Facebook Ads is a good place to start with this.
2. Write and submit articles. Article marketing continues to be one of my personal primary advertising strategies. In my case I like to write and submit articles so this strategy works well.
If you don’t enjoy writing, are not or are not particularly good at it, you can outsource this to an article writer. There are plenty of sources online to find inexpensive article writers.
Writing and submitting articles is a fast way to develop backlinks. You can also promote any webpage you want in the resource box and drive traffic to it using article marketing.
4. Blog and bookmark. I like to take my articles and post them on my blog. Try and do this before they go out to the article directories so when search engines spider your blog you get credit for fresh content.
Also bookmark your blog post using a service such as OnlyWire. This is a good way to develop backlinks and get the search engines spidering your blog more regularly.
These are 4 examples of how you can do marketing online if you’re dealing with a small advertising budget. Most of your marketing efforts will be spent in the way of your time as opposed to actual dollars.
