  • 5 Ways to Promote your Business for Free

    Hi

    1.Classified Ads : There are plenty of classified ad directories on the internet where you can post ads for free, two such sites being Gumtree and Vivastreet.

    2. Send out press releases : Many small businesses consider the prospect of getting press coverage unattainable. However, a good story submitted well has every chance of making the news, and best of all it’s free.

    3. Start a blog : Starting a blog is an excellent way of engaging your existing audience as well as attracting new customers. However, blogs do take time and patience so only start one if you have the time to put into it.

    4. Participate in relevant forums : Online forums are used and viewed by hundreds of people, and there’s almost always likely to be a couple of forums based around your industry. Participate in these forums through making relevant posts – many forums allow you to include a link to your company in your signature.

    5. Cross-Promotion : Find non-competing companies in your industry and suggest cross-promoting your two products, perhaps through adding links on your websites or including flyers in mail shots.

    I'd quickly suggest social media also. Becoming pretty big and popular now, things like facebook, twitter, youtube etc. All are free, quick and easy to setup, so a good way to promote your business for free also.

        Be cautious of spending your money on a one-time ad splash. Although great for your ego, it is a quick way to deplete your checking account. Full-page ads in a major publication such as the New York Times are impressive if you can afford it. If your ad budget is substantial and you are a household name or intent on becoming one, perhaps a "splash" is reasonable. But as a start-up business marketing strategy, it may be foolish.

              You will find that any business will cost some sort of investment. But the investment isn't always a huge out of pocket layout. I work from home and I have looked into alot of businesses and all of them were costing something.

                I'll add 5 more...

                1. Articles: Write a 350-500 word article focused around one of your industry's main keywords. Use the keyword in the title and naturally about 1% of the time in the body of the article. "How to" articles are a good place to start. Provide access to more information in the resource box. Include two links, one your keyword as the anchor text and the other a direct link to your lead capture page. Submit to the top 5 article directories.

                2. Newsletter List JV: Do a search on Google for your main keyword: newsletter, i.e. real estate investing: newsletter. Subscribe to the newsletters of those selling a complimentary, but non-competing product. Contact those appearing on pages 1 and 2 who look to have the most on the ball and suggest their mailing you offer to their list in exchange for a share of the sales revenue. Both parties win.

                3. Learn how to rank on the first page of Google Local Business Center (now Google Places) for the top search terms in your industry.

                4. Create a keyword-optimized video less than 2 minutes long about how to do something or how to solve a common problem/answer a common question in your market. Put it up on YouTube.

                5. If you like to speak, contact all the service clubs in your area and offer to do a 15 minute talk at one of their meetings/lunches/breakfasts. Prepare a simple handout. Do not sell!

                  Learn to use the forums. They are not hard. If you can post here on Yahoo answers, you can post on a forum.

                    Another great way to market your business online for free is to take advantage of a free social media press release service like Pressit that lets you create your own social media news releases that include all the information found in traditional press releases, as well as supporting audio, images, You Tube video clips, PDF documents and relevant links – all the elements needed to make it as simple as possible for online journalists and bloggers to prepare an online story or blog post about your business and spread the word about your business across the web.

                      These are all good ideas, but for sure get your website up and running, you will notice that Google places older website in front all the time, so get it going.

                        I am not giving 5 but one of the important ways is : An integral part of the Yahoo Local listings are reviews. Ask your good customers to write reviews for you on Yahoo local. Businesses with higher ratings will get preferential listings.

                          In addition to lists, why not try social networking? Facebook Fanpage Creation perhaps. Aside from social networking, we can also do blogging and forum posting. Just post your comments with links back to your website and your target consumers will be redirected to your main website.

                            I think Internet world best platform for promote any kind of business. You can find much better stages on which you can promote your brand or business. But despite of you have an great thing like Internet, you should take care with every little thing of business promotions.
