Get A Months Free Traffic To Your Site In One Day Written by Holly Janion
Continued from page 1
Here's exciting bit. This, my very first article, my very first attempt at writing was published on 7th April in WebProNews with a circulation of 500,000. These 500,000 readers saw my article including my resource box with my name and my web site address and it didn't cost me anything! I was even contacted by another editor who read this article, asking me for permission to feature same article in his e-zine. Wow! Together with all e-mails I received congratulating me on article, I was on a total high! It was most exciting day of my Internet career to date and since then different articles I have written have been published by various quality e-zines.
Yet I am no different from you. I have web sites I need to promote and now know this is only effective way to do so. The return is just so great. My only regret is that I didn't stumble across Rick's site earlier. As I said, I am not a writer and didn't give in to little voice inside that tried to stop me doing this. If I had, I would have missed out on so much - it is only by trying different things that we know how successful we really can be.
So start thinking. What do you enjoy? What do you know about? What can you share with others? Relate your personal experiences. For example, as I write this article I know many of you have most probably heard of this marketing technique before, and I know most of you have certainly listened to little voice inside of you telling you that you can't do it, but I am hoping that by reading about my personal experience, as a non-writer, you too will be able to benefit from this most exciting, successful and free method of Internet marketing as I have.
As I said, you have nothing to lose so start thinking, writing and submitting now. Be prepared for rejection. Not everyone I submitted "Testimonial" article to accepted it. Some editors totally ignored it but I persevered until I struck gold and believe me, you can strike gold too! And if you're reading this, I've struck gold again!

Breakout of the Classified Ocean - With Alternative Promotion MethodsWritten by Joe Bingham

them. Spreading your link around on other sites will help to promote what you have to offer. The problem here is that you can only put so many links on your site without cluttering it up, and that you have to have something to offer others in order to get them to exchange with you. Therefore, this can be a hard thing to start out with. Also, if you are promoting an affiliate site, you can't add anything to it anyway. The good thing about this is that it will expose your link to a different market. GUARANTEED HITS There are programs for purchasing Guaranteed Hits to your site. This will bring you visitors with no worries and literally no work. The distinct advantage over other methods of promoting is that visitor will be at your site. You don't have to coax them to visit as with other advertising, they will be taken to your site. Also, this can work for promoting affiliate sites whereas many of other methods are only useful for those with their own web site. It is an expense, and while visitors are generally online business owners and buyers, they may not be specifically targeted to your particular interest. However, if you believe your site or program is good and are only lacking in getting visitors this may be best solution. Guaranteed Hits usually come in groups of 1000s. 5-10 thousand often being a minimum purchase. So, even with a terribly low sales percentage you can still see how guaranteed hits can be very effective. Just compare price of guaranteed hits to how many sales you would have to get to make it all worth it. If even a low 1-3% sales ratio makes you a profit, then this may be answer for you. The other advantage here is that you don't have to do promotional work to get these visitors. Therefore, you will be left with more time to work on other aspects of your business. TARGETED BANNER IMPRESSIONS Targeted Banner Impressions have similar advantages and disadvantages to guaranteed hits. These are banners that are placed on other's sites with content similar to your own. In fact, they may even end up on a direct competitor's site. People are not guaranteed to visit your site, but banners are presented to an audience of people that are targeted to your specific business whereas guaranteed hits are more general. This also has a cost, but again compare it to cost of classified ads and see if a low 1-3% sales ratio will still make you a profit above that of cost of Banner Impressions. Once again, this method of promotion leaves you more time to work on other aspects of your business. Each of these methods can be useful, it just depends on your abilities and interests. Some of these require work, others require no work, but incur an expense. Consider each of them and how they might fit into your plans. It's certainly possible to integrate multiple ways of promotion, and in fact it makes sense to do so. Still, considering these other methods may just get you out of having to write anymore classified ads, or having to compete in Classified Ocean.
