Getting traffic to your site,this is the hard part,but it really isn't that hard,you just need to spend a half hour or so a day to get results,but remember,the harder you work,the better the payoff,I will list a few places to give you an idea of what you are looking for in terms of advertising,this is just like any business,in order to make sales you will have to get your name out in front of the people looking to buy what you have,and make sure you know alittle something about what you are trying to promote,selling something and knowing nothing about it,sometimes doesn't really work,so if you are going to promote something,do some research on it,read a little about it,that way when it is your turn to post a blog,you will sound like you been selling for years,thats what we are after,
One tool you will need to help you sign in the blogs and ads sites you will need to be sending your articles to wil be Roboformthis is a great program that will fill in all the forms and passwords for you,all you do is click a button,thats all,sometimes I will have to fill in something like a capacta(think thats how it is spelled) but thats nothing,this program will download right now from this link,Roboform,fill out the information and get started,real easy to use and very helpfull,
hubpages,children with aidsThis is a hub I wrote to tell a story of a little girl I know here local,she is a sweety with a bright future,good reading,not advertising here,,anyway,the next place would afcourse be,
blogspot.comThis is another great place to post blogs about you or your site,remember,we are posting to get your name on the net,the more blogs and site you post your website name to the higher the page rank you will get,more work,higher payout,
then theres wordpresswordpress or press release, a weblog,blog mostly like the rest,there are many more blogging site,I use about 15,getting the name out it the key,advertise is the cure,
Placing an ad on the web is considerably cheaper than placing an equivalent ad in a print magazine or newspaper and has a far greater potential reach. It is simply more cost-effective.
Your ad is not restricted by national, geographical, broadcast or distributor boundaries, it is literally available to the whole world, opening up new markets.
Customers who arrive at your site are already pre-qualified "warm" leads. They came because they are interested in what you have to offer.
A well-constructed website has the potential to offer up more information and substance than possible in a 30-second TV commercial. But beware: a badly designed website can send customers away just as quickly.
A website is a long-term investment; it is open 24/7 and promotes your company and its services for years. It is a much greater return on investment than any other form or advertising.
Marketing by word of mouth spreads far quicker on the ‘net than in traditional models making the web the definitive "viral marketing" arena.
Here is a list of social networks,they are great for advertising free,you create an account,you can then post blogs,join group with other selleres like youself,learn great tips from the pros,advertise on your profile and start adding friends,here are 3 good ones I use,I use more and theres plenty more but this is the top three for me,
