>>>Publish an E-Mail Newsletter It is a big commitment publishing a newsletter, but it is one of best ways to keep in touch with your prospects and build future business.
>>>Install a "Signature" in your E-Mail Program Most e-mail programs allow you to designate a "signature" to appear at end of each message you send. Limit it to 6 to 8 lines: Company name, address, phone number, URL, e-mail address, and a one-phrase description of your unique business offerings. Look for examples on e-mail messages sent to you.
>>>Announce a Contest People like getting something free. If you publicize a contest or drawing available on your site, you'll generate more traffic than normal.
>>>Join a Banner Exchange Program Of many banner exchange programs, LinkExchange is biggest. You agree to show a rotating banner on your site for other LinkExchange members, and they do same for you.
>>>Purchase Banner Ads You may need to spend money to boost traffic by purchasing banner advertising. Choose sites that seem to attract type of people who would be good prospects for your business or product. You can find media brokers who can help you find appropriate and cost-effective places to advertise.
>>>Buy a Text Ad in an E-Mail Newsletter Some of best advertising buys are for small 4 to 12 line ads in established e-mail newsletters. Ads can both inform and motivate readers to click on URL, and tend to bring much more targeted visitors.
>>>Ask Visitors to Bookmark Your Site It seems so simple, but make sure you ask visitors to bookmark your site.
I certainly haven't depleted all ways to promote your site, but these will get you started. To effectively market your site you need to spend some time adapting these strategies to your own market and BE CONSISTENT. Good luck to you!
