Although it is crucial to advertise your online business, this does not mean that you have to suffer that much in this process.

There are many techniques that allow you to advertise your site for free.

While most online business owners are familiar with how to spend money to advertise, few understand how to promote their businesses for free.

The reason being paid for advertising can produce immediate results, and can be controlled.

You as the advertiser can decide how much traffic you want your site to receive, and how much you are willing to pay for that traffic.

But this does not meant that you cannot benefit from free online advertising.

I am sure you can see that the customers you receive from free advertising are more profitable to you than customers who came as a result of paid advertising.

The profit you earn on sales to them does not have any advertising expenses subtracted, so the net profit is higher.

Among the free online advertising techniques you can use are, destination sites.

Destination sites are sites where your potential customers visit to look for information. You can supply information to these sites in return for listing you as a source of that information. This technique will give you traffic from customers who are eagerly looking for your product or service.

Another free advertising technique is starting a forum covering your market. By being the moderator of this forum you can interact with potential customers without having to coax them to your site.

Lastly, you should post messages at forums that cover your market. Make sure your posts are relevant and display your level of knowledge.

If you are able to clearly convey your expertise you will have potential customers contacting you to find more about your products and services.

Profit will flow through these advertise channels if you try to do.

This is all very interesting, thanks.

As you say, there are many ways to get free (or cheap) advertising. One inexpensive way is to use the services of a link building "business", many of which are run by people in India. They make promises to their hapless clients to get them xxxx number of links, and then attempt to achieve their target by spamming forums with barely literate postings or cut'n'paste jobs.

It's really a big waste of time as any switched on admin will spot such a trick a mile away and ban the perpetrator. It might even result in the client's site being blacklisted on various places too. Caveat emptor.

Free advertising? One method I've had success with is to offer people something useful. It could be a forum posting or perhaps a guest blog post. Similarly, I give people free advertising in return for things such them giving me a photo or an article.

You see, it has to work both ways. You give before you take. Trying just to take is a loser's game.

I rest my case.

I knew it was a copy n paste job. I was just being sarcastic in the hope of reminding people that we don't like copy n paste rubbish on here.

Unfortunately, it only attracted yet another spammy idiot with a meaningless post.

Yawn. More "link builders" in India spoiling the internet for other people.

I despise the scum but sometimes think the people who hire their services are even worse. Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes
