Free Marketing Strategies You Can Use In Your Online Business
Because of this, it's important that you find a way to make money with your advertising efforts, or break even.
This way you have a justified reason to continue to do paid advertising methods such as pay per click.
Now if you're an established business and you know the average lifetime value of a customer, and this is a huge number...
then it would probably make sense to advertise and start getting new customers, because they will turn into higher profitable customers later on down the line - plus you will recoup this loss simply and easily.
If you're having a hard time making paid advertising work, you can always still use free marketing.
Now before you cast a negative opinion about free marketing, you should know that it's a very good way to get lots of traffic to your website.
And in a lot of cases, it gets you more traffic than paid advertising! This is something that should make you want to jump for joy.
There are many free marketing strategies that you will want to use to make your website profitable, and I intend on showing you what these great traffic methods are.
In fact, let's take a look at the first free traffic strategy that you should be using in your business today.
1) Article marketing Now I have recently been hearing some new things about article marketing.
Some people say that if you want to get the most out of article marketing, place the articles on your site first, and then submit them to the article directories.
And if that wasn't enough, there are some people who say don't EVER submit to an article directory.
My response to that was, "If we should never submit articles to an article directory, then why does it exist?" Whenever I tell people that I get nice traffic from the article directories, they frown - saying that this is this is not how you're supposed to use article directories.
If you've heard this conflicting advice before also, then you should take the safe route and submit your articles to the article directories so that you can get free traffic, have people post your article onto their website, and get traffic from there too.
And then place the articles onto your website.
Don't let this complicated advice keep you inactive.
Here's another way to get free traffic to your site: 2) Social bookmarking This is a strategy that can deliver a ton of traffic to your website if you do it right.
You will need to gather up a group of friends to share your bookmarks with, and if you have a very interesting news story, or article...
tell your friends on this network to "vote up" your article or news story.
This is a great way to get traffic back to your website, but you can't make it happen on your own.
If your news story was to ever hit the front pages of the social bookmarking sites...
expect to see a flood of traffic coming through.
But believe it or not, even though you may get a ton of traffic, it doesn't necessarily mean that they will convert into customers.
So you will have to keep this in mind.
Use these 2 traffic strategies to earn more money and make your internet business successful.
Good luck with using these traffic tips to boost your online income today.
