I have been doing business online for eight years, as of this coming March, 2002. Here are "Top Ten" methods I have used and which anyone can use, to increase traffic to your web site and email to your inbox:
1. Create an Email Signature File.
Every email you send will show people who you are, what you are doing online and where you can be contacted on Internet. Keep it short but informative. For more on Email Signature Files, visit our web page :
"How To Use Your Signature" http://emailexchange.org/sig.html
2. Register with Top Ten Search Engines.
In less than half an hour, you can register your web site on your own with "Top Ten" Search Engines and Directories, including Yahoo! And for FREE.

3. Place FREE Online Ads - DAILY.
Many people will tell you those online ads, either classifieds or FFA link sites, are a waste of time.
But there is a strategy that can yield you a steady and consistent flow of "QUALIFIED BUYERS". I revealed this strategy to my FBCN subscribers last July with an article entitled:

4. Apply for a Web Site Award.
Recognition always brings added exposure. And added links to your web site increase your search engine "popularity" factor which increases your ranking.
Visit my web site where you will find over 268 Web Site Awards which you can apply for FREE. You will find them under our FREE Resources section at: http://www.emailexchange.org/
5. Link Your Web Site with Reciprocal Links
As I mentioned in Award Sites above, some of top search engines, like Google, will improve your web sites ranking due to "Popularity" factor.
