Most people who launch websites in the hope of making money aren’t independently wealthy and don’t have the money to put into even the least expensive ad campaign. What you want is free website traffic that’s targeted to your audience and that will make your business succeed.
Free website traffic doesn’t mean no work, however. Some of the best free methods of driving traffic to your website require time and effort from the website owner. But that effort will pay off big time without spending any money. Here are the best free ways to get people to click onto your website:
- Article marketing. Write an article that you believe your prospects would be interested in reading about, then post it to various online article directories. Once posted, these articles will continue to bring eyes to your website as long as your website exists. It’s free to write them (unless you must hire someone to do it for you) and free to post them on the directories. An added bonus is that you can actually get paid by some directories, through profit-sharing or Google AdSense.
- Social media marketing. That’s a fancy way of saying get on Facebook, Linked, Twitter, etc., and tell the world about what you’re all about. Don’t just advertise, come up with something interesting and unique to post. Post comments on other accounts. Post links to your latest articles. Signing up to these sites is free.
- Link sharing. Share links with related sites. If you sell kitchen gadgets, for example, you could share links with a site that has recipes or kitchen designs. Make certain you register your website on directories. Not only will this help with your SEO, people may find you and get to site that way.
- Participate in forums, but don’t spam. If you have something relevant to add to an online discussion, this is a good way of getting your link out there and branding yourself. Do not leave comments on unrelated sites; they are worthless. Don’t spam; there is nothing more annoying than seeing those generic posts that are meaningless.
With a bit of time and not one dime you can easily market your online business.
