Internet Promotion: Awards Submission

Written by Richard Lowe

Continued from page 1

- If you look at my awards pages at you will see that I've also includedrepparttar text ofrepparttar 125177 emails fromrepparttar 125178 award programs. These are good testimonials as they provide a reason whyrepparttar 125179 award was won. This can serve to add credibility to your site andrepparttar 125180 information that you present (andrepparttar 125181 product you may be trying to sell).

It's pretty simple to submit torepparttar 125182 awards sites. Simply locate them (and there are some good resources listed atrepparttar 125183 end of this article), readrepparttar 125184 instructions and enterrepparttar 125185 data. If you win you'll hear back from them in a few days or weeks. Generally at that time you will receive an email with instructions on how to addrepparttar 125186 award to your site. Usually there is also some advertising included (it's part ofrepparttar 125187 price that you pay).

Unless you find an award that you really want, I would suggest limiting submissions to those awards that will give you a link back to your site. A major part ofrepparttar 125188 reason to go through all of this trouble is to get more traffic. The only way to achieve this is to get that back link.

My advice is simple. Spend a few hours each week scanning through award listings such as those atrepparttar 125189 bottom of this article. Submit your site to perhaps thirty or forty awards. You will win some of them. This should become part of your standard weekly promotional activity.

The gain will be that you will feel better about your site (assuming, of course, that you win any awards), your popularity will rise, and perhaps you will gain some small amount of additional traffic. Atrepparttar 125190 very least,repparttar 125191 people who are judgingrepparttar 125192 awards will have to visit your site at least once to check it out.
