    You may want to start with correcting your url[​IMG]

    It needs another ] after the first set of url... then just find forums to participate in like you are doing here.

    There are a lot of people with more patience than I have to do the clickie thing - and there are other forums around as well, where you can play around in and leave your 'tracks'...have fun[​IMG]

    moountainmom5 is right. Participate in forums, write articles, submit to search engines.

    I wrote a couple of articles on the topic that might give you a few pointers. I don't think I'm allowed to post a link to the articles, so visit the No Job for Mom in my signature. Hopefully you'll find the articles helpful.

    Continue to read posts in this forum. I've found the folks here to be knowledgeable and helpful.

    Best of luck in promoting your site.

    Yep correct your URL, so that we can have a look on your website.... you are loosing traffic from this forum dude

    so few tips are:

    1. Search forums similar to your website's topic, that allows url of your website in signature file and be a regular participant of them. People will visit your website through your sig file link.

    2. Write compelling and resourceful articles, submit then to ezine websites, like ezinearticles.com with link and short description of your website. They are very very important part of web promotion. Sending you direct traffic and indirectly increasing your google page rank. Best results come when you submit your articles to the ezine of similar topic

    3. Do link exchange with websites of same niche

    4. leave nice and sensible comments on blogs. from here you will get link back to your website

    5. submit your website to directories in appropriate category.

    6. Write a press release about your website and submit it to free press release websites.

    7. start a newsletter and make subscribers email list to whom you can periodically send newsletter on what you have new for them.

    8. Keep adding new and unique content to your website

    9. keep your website optimised to search engines

    10. test, test & test new places on net

    any more suggestion guys.....

    Good tips madnawat.

    I might add that you can create a bunch of relevant web 2.0 sites for free and link back from those sites. You can also create linkbacks from social bookmarking sites.

    First of all I would pick one thing to focus on per post or advertising message.

    Secondly I would get a URL and do a re-direct

    You might try article marketing, it's free and the SEs love good content.

    Hi I am a newbie to this forum.

    Have any of you advertised your website with magnets on your car? How about Pens and business cards? If so has it helped? Is it worth the cost?

    i've done much reading the past few days and today I will start implementing what madnawat said as well as some other free submission and traffic strategies I researched. I'ts going pretty good for me, so far my bux.to account is earning me a steady $23 plus dollars/day and growing=]..I hope to get some free referrals using these techniques to make my business grow. My short term goal is $100/day ..I will keep updating as I progress..Any more help appreciated...God Bless..Prosperity to all!

    P.s. about the magnets and pens...no idea.

    Hi Group!

    First want to answer Gina's q above regarding car magnets, pens, and etc - yes, Gina, they are worth it! They all help to build brand familiarity for you locally (and YOU are the brand!) So, yes, invest - it's a great idea for off-line marketing.

    And now to bburt252 - great sugestions for you above from other members and all that I have to add to the pot is this: the internet is a really big place, and although you do need to advertise, you also have to become really good at developing relationships with others. This has worked really well for me, and is far less competitive than advertising - people are absolutely inundated with ads day and night, and for the most part they set their brains to ignore.

    However, when you make a friend online and they notice that you are involved with something online, they are quite likely to at least take a look and give it serious consideration. In fact, as well as advertising your site, you may want to develop your own mailing list with a newsletter or some such thing - Newsletters are a great way to develop lots of quality relationships and build your personal reputation.

    I think that the most important thing I ever learned about marketing is that the relationship comes first - since then I have focused my efforts in that direction.

    A friend of mine teaches lifeguard instruction in the summer. At the beginning of every summer she gets some "window marker" and writes her number and a short description on her windows of her car. Soon the phone is ringing off the hook. Pens are good for Avon or the like product, but if you are marketing a $2000 business opportunity, I don't believe that it will serve you well.

    tidbits: moountainmom5 is right. Participate in forums, write articles, submit to search engines.

    When you say write articles, are you referring to articles regarding the website you want to promote? Or just articles as any type of story in general? Where do you go to write these articles? I am very confused on this article writing thing. lol
