7 Major Ways to Get Your Online Business Found on the Internet For Free

There are many ways in which to get your business found on the internet for free, it is a combination of all the aspects outlined in this article and persistence in doing the work regularly. If you want quick exposure and are willing to pay through the nose for it then just go and open a pay per click account. If you want to drive endless quality traffic to your website for free then read on. When implementing these tactics the search engines will also be more likely to pick up on the website you are promoting and will list it in the organic search engines which have statistics for sending more traffic with a higher conversion rate than pay per click. The seven points I am going to cover today are1.) Writing articles.2.) Writing press releases.3.) Blogging. 4.) Forum signatures. 5.) Podcasts. 6.) Making and publishing video 7.) Viral marketing.Writing ezine articles is one of the best ways to promote your online business however your articles in order to be successful must be both of an informative nature and not seem to promote your business directly, there is nothing worse than searching for information on the internet and having somebody trying to ram their business down your throat. You must seem to promote yourself as a knowledgeable body on the internet and not a sales person trying to make a sale. You can of course promote your business through the article signature. Some ezine sites do have their own coding for doing such signatures and may differ from site to site. If your website has more information on the subject that you are already writing about in your ezine then you may be able to direct link to that website or you may link to your blog that has more information, and then from your blog to your website would be acceptable. With most ezine article sites you have the choice to be a free member or you can subscribe. A monthly subscription will of course get your articles published a lot faster but if you are writing a lot of articles, which in order to be successful you should be doing, then when you have a constant stream of articles being published over a say a 10 day period then I personally would stick to the free membership at least until you have fine tuned your writing technique.Writing press releases is a more direct way of advertising your online business. It is possible to keep people up to date with recent events in your business such as developments in products or changes made to your website or you can use press releases in the same way as you use articles to give away valuable content to your readers on related topics to your business. Pressexposure.com, is one of the best press release sites and is fairly relaxed in the rules of self promotion, it only takes a day or two to get your work reviewed and published.Blogging is a great way to promote yourself, your site and your business. If you can make your blog interesting enough and full of great content then people will subscribe to your blog and become followers of your work. A blog site can also be of great value to you the more visitors you get, the higher the traffic the more value your blog site will become and you can sell advertising space on that blog which creates a nice residual income and it does of course open a gateway to your main website. Good video content also has a place on your blog it is easy enough to publish a video on youtube.com and simply use the embedding code to place that video on your blog, it doesn’t even have to be your own work you can embed any video that displays an embedding code just make sure it is of relevance.Forum signatures is a way of creating a link to your website and as described in point 1. With ezine articles it is a way of disguising your domain so as not to be obviously promoting yourself. It is best to enter a forum with the view as not to promote yourself but to brand yourself as a servant to other people in the forum. This can be done by viewing peoples help requests and finding the answers to their questions and posting them in the forum with your signature. There are literally hundreds of forums out there just be careful to read the rules before you make a post because if you write to much self promotional material you will have your account closed very quickly and sometimes without warning. The more traffic there is in a forum the better don’t be afraid to join as many as possible and make use of a good hour a day reading through and replying to posts and making fresh posts that are of interest. You will soon see that people will take note of what you have to say and be interested in finding out more about what you do.Making video for publishing on the internet is not as technical as you may think in fact with today’s software, such as windows movie maker, that comes ready installed on most up to date computers especially those that host windows vista operating systems, then the process is very simple. I have already written an article on the subject of making videos with windows movie maker. Video is well respected by Google and when using the right publishing company you can find yourself on the first page of Google in the organic search results within 10 minutes of publication. Publishing video is made easy for multiple sites in one simple process with companies like trafficgeyser.com and tubemogul.com they will also cover podcast publications of the same content which covers point 6, of this article.Viral marketing is one of my favourites and I’m going to give you a golden nugget of information here. If you have a look at some of the videos on YouTube you will see that there is a, number of views, counter at the bottom right just under the screen of the video and a number of days, weeks, months or years that the video has been running on the left side. Some of the most viewed content on YouTube is funny content, for instance there was a well known video called “Charlie bit me” a few years go about two young brothers one baby brother biting the other one on the finger which was very funny and it had over 62 million views in a very short period of time. Now imagine you had a video with content like that with your web address printed at the bottom as a subtitle, out of 62 million viewers how many would have a look at your website? (Even if it was only 1% that is still 620,000 potential customers). People also take these videos and embed them into their blogs and pass them around face book and other social networking sites this is what you call going viral. The traffic that this generates is of course untargeted but it is traffic none the less and if you manage to create something that does go viral then you could potentially get lots of it. One of the easiest ways of finding content for this type of marketing is to simply record a highly viewed programme off the television, I have had great results with programmes like Britain’s’ Got Talent and X Factor, remember Paul Potts when he sang for the first time this video had over 10 million views in a week on YouTube it now has over 40 million. Imagine the potential!All these tactics are ongoing exercises and should be executed on a regular basis in order to see results. Make it a weekly task to do one of each, each week and you will soon start to see results.
