Tell your e-mail subscribers! This is an easy first step to take, to promote a site redesign (or new pages on your site). Subscribers have been expecting an announcement, anyway, because you've been referring torepparttar 125174 redesign in earlier newsletters (haven't you?).

This is your best opportunity to really go into detail about allrepparttar 125175 great ways your site has improved, and allrepparttar 125176 new benefits your subscribers will find. You could even (cheekily!) run a competition to encourage subscribers to visit your site, and find those inevitable bugs, beforerepparttar 125177 rest ofrepparttar 125178 web does!!

===== Side Bar ===== If you don't run a newsletter, this is one (of many) great reasons why you should! Listbot, Topica, e-circle are just a few services that provide free, ad-supported, newsletters: - http://www.listbot.com - http://www.topica.com - http://www.ecircle-uk.com ===== Side Bar =====


Tell friends, family and others who are (legitimately) in your address book. Make your e-mail personal, and friendly. And better still, just talk about how your site now benefits or involves them. That is, just discuss: * your new link to their site * your promotion of their affiliate program * their new article, now on your site

Even busy friends and family, need to be 'encouraged'! Always focus on benefits, but *get them* to visit!


Tellrepparttar 125179 newsgroups about your new site, but only do this if you are a regular contributor. Simply announce your site - check that site announcements are allowed, first! - with a few good reasons why members should visit! Better still, contribute torepparttar 125180 newsgroup, and simply leave your URL as part of your 'signature'.

A great place to find suitable newsgroups is - http://www.deja.com/usenet/ (now http://groups.google.com)


DON'T just blast your new pages to allrepparttar 125181 search engines / directories! This may seem like spam to them, and your new pages (or even your whole site) may get banned. This is because some search engines need to be told about new pages, others don't. And directories generally just like to know aboutrepparttar 125182 main page on your site (unless you've just added a lot of content on a completely different theme).

Search engine policies change regularly, so find out from others by visiting a search engine forum, or asking someone you consider to be an expert. An excellent place to find search engine advice is http://www.searchengineforums.com [HELP! and New Member Forum].

(So what did *I* do? I just submitted one new page torepparttar 125183 major search engines. This page has links to all ofrepparttar 125184 other new pages, too, sorepparttar 125185 search engine spiders should eventually index all of my new content. I visited searchengineforums first, obviously!)


Add more keywords to your various pay-per-click accounts. This is a great way to make new content available, quickly. (You just have to wait for keyword-approval byrepparttar 125186 pay-per-click administrators).

Choose profitable keywords (high demand, low supply), identified when you began creating new content. But, as you pay for each click, it's important that you only get clicks from your potential customers; so choose your keywords, title & description carefully.

===== Big Side Bar ===== Don't know what Pay-per-click search engines are? They are search engines, like GoTo, that allow you to choose how highly your site ranks for a particular keyword. So you make a bid on a keyword. And if your bid is highest, your site features highest on that search engine's ranking, for that keyword. And for each click your listing generates, you payrepparttar 125187 amount that you bid torepparttar 125188 search engine.

4 Articles = 2 Bestsellers For 2 Years

How many times have you groaned when you heard you need to publish articles in order to sell products onrepparttar Internet?

Do you really believe that writing articles will produce results?

A couple of years ago, after I published my fourth Rocketedition (now Gemstar) e-book, I was scratching my head thinking how am I going to market this these e-books? Nobody I know owns a dedicated e-book- reading device.

I found a website calledrepparttar 125172 Rocket-Library where I could post sample chapters, articles or complete e-books, offeringrepparttar 125173 information for free. (Note: it is now defunct)

Sincerepparttar 125174 only wayrepparttar 125175 information could be read was on a Rocketbook e-book reader, I felt this marketing strategy would present sales.

3 months after posting a total of 4 articles: 2 for "A Cheap and Easy Guide to Self-publishing E-books" and 2 for "How to Hypnotize People and Other Living Things, " I started getting incredible results.

"A Cheap and Easy Guide to Self-publishing E-books" becamerepparttar 125176 number one best-selling non-fiction e-book on Barnes & Noble.com.

Now it competes against print and is inrepparttar 125177 top 10 best selling "self- publishing" books sold on Barnes & Noble.com

"How to Hypnotize People and Other Living Things" has stayed up in repparttar 125178 top 5 hypnotism book rankings on Barnes & Noble.com, competing against print for almost two years. It competes against 706 print titles in that category.

The only marketing I ever employed for these two titles was spending a total of 4 hours at a keyboard hammering out 4 articles.

Overrepparttar 125179 last year I have been side tracked but inrepparttar 125180 last month I have submitted over 100 articles, (2 articles X 50 e-zines). I have had amazing results.

I have sold other e-books and sold reprint-resale rights to my e- books, booked a couple of speaking engagements, and sold my consulting services by phone and e-mail.

In addition I have had around 20 articles actually published in other's e-zines and newsletters which may present business opportunities for another 2 years.

It seems everyone is interested in a "cheaper and easier" way of getting Internet sales results.

Writing articles for other people's e-zines and newsletter isrepparttar 125181 way to do it.
