Internet Promotion: Link ExchangeWritten by Richard Lowe

If you don't get an acknowledgement, don't be afraid to resend message a week or so later.
You want to add his link to your page first as a gesture of good faith, and to show him that you thought his site was of high enough quality to recommend it to your own visitors.
Nine times out of ten, this works like a charm. You get added to his links page and it only cost you a few minutes to write up an email. Now it's automatic - you don't need to worry about it anymore. More than likely you will only get a few visitors a month from something like this, but it adds up over time.
And there is a much bigger payoff - getting you page listed on other sites increases your popularity to some search engines. This moves you higher in search list, which improves tremendously number of people who will visit your site. An indirect but very definite return on investment.

How To Develop Maximum Web Site Traffic Written by Tim Urban
Continued from page 1
Even though paid advertising pulls more than Free advertising, traffic or responses are NOT guaranteed. As you may know, in traditional forms of paid advertising you are paying for space, circulation and number/length of times your ad runs. Whether you get enough (or any) responses is of NO concern to publishing media you're working with. Per Inquiry simply means that cost for advertising is directly proportional to responses received. In other words, X amount of responses for X amount of dollars. If you are really serious about promoting your offer and want guaranteed results, you should use Per Inquiry Advertising. 5. Add your URL & Chief Benefits To All Marketing Materials It staggers me how many opportunities for promotion pass every single day without being utilized. Look at your business cards, card deck cards, space ads, yellow pages ads, brochures, flyers, envelopes you mail in, etc. Is this information included on them... or are you literally throwing away promotional opportunities every time you think you're "marketing"? If you want traffic, make sure everything you use promotes your URL and reason for visiting it. 6. Develop A Response Template Are you annoyed by unsolicited e-mail? I was, too, until I got smart about it. I figured these people were just a new kind of prospect. Thus, I developed a series of response templates in which I described my offer. Send a Response Template To Every Unsolicited E-Mail You Receive. Just by clicking a button you'll be getting YOUR information into hands of new prospects. This method is more socially responsible than sending kind of response hate mail that so many people unaccountably find acceptable. 7. Don't Slack Off It's easy to be lazy. Sloth is seductive. But when you stop building traffic, you start cutting value of your Web site. That's not my way... and it shouldn't be yours. Building traffic on Internet is an exciting, high energy game. With very valuable pay-offs. Which get bigger every day.
