Successful internet marketing without a budget

Written by Lee Munson

Darren Cronian runs a highly successful website,, withoutrepparttar benefit of a marketing budget. Here's how.......

Below are his answers to questions we put to him on June 25th, 2005.

You are successfully promoting Worldwide Holiday Homes, without a marketing budget. Is this a decision you took out of necessity or choice?

Certainly out of necessity - I dream ofrepparttar 145730 day when I can spend thousands of pounds on marketing my business.

When I first hadrepparttar 145731 idea ofrepparttar 145732 business I had no business plan, I hadn't designed a website before, and I'd certainly never heard ofrepparttar 145733 term SEO, never mind what is stood for. All I did know was that I would submit this website to Google, and within days thousands of visitors would be visiting my site.. (I'm being serious!) that's how innocent I was.

It could be argued that someone who looks to promote a site without any kind of budget is either ill-prepared or lacks faith inrepparttar 145734 product or service they are offering. What are your feelings about this?

I would agree with you -repparttar 145735 idea came to me when my parents bought a holiday home in Spain, and I had never thought about building a business before, I was ill prepared and to some degree, I lacked belief thatrepparttar 145736 website and services were going to be successful, and if it wasn't for my own dedication to succeedrepparttar 145737 business wouldn't be inrepparttar 145738 position that it is in today.

Trying to promote your site without spending any money must be extremely difficult. What do you consider to be your biggest challenge in terms of marketing?

I cannot explain how difficult it is - I see my competitors spending thousands (if not millions) on PPC campaigns, television and radio advertisements, etc and sometimes that can be soul destroying, and you do think 'What am I doing wrong?' but these companies have a work force that are dedicated on building and runningrepparttar 145739 company - whilst I'm runningrepparttar 145740 business by myself, in my living room.

The biggest challenge with marketing is persuading clients (villa owners) that I can offer them a service, which is good value for money, has great support and customer care - unfortunately,repparttar 145741 sector I am working within,repparttar 145742 travel industry, has thousands of companies, and many of them have let owners down, and in my opinion made life very difficult for genuine businesses.

The other challenge I face is making sure thatrepparttar 145743 website is regularly visited by holidaymakers - withoutrepparttar 145744 traffic fromrepparttar 145745 likes of Google, Yahoo and MSNrepparttar 145746 business would not exist - fair enough you could say that about 99% of online companies, butrepparttar 145747 owners who advertise their villas, etc. rely on enquiries from holidaymakers, and if I'm not providing owners with enquiries, I'm failing them andrepparttar 145748 business.

Do you feel that having no marketing budget restrains your site from moving forward and competing withrepparttar 145749 leaders in your industry?

It certainly does - I want to be respected byrepparttar 145750 travel industry, and I want everyone to know who Worldwide Holiday Homes are - when someone is looking to rent a villa I want them to say "oh let's go to Worldwide Holiday Homes". Without a marketing budget, I don't haverepparttar 145751 funds to pay for a PR company to raiserepparttar 145752 profile ofrepparttar 145753 business and I think long term this will affectrepparttar 145754 business unless I increaserepparttar 145755 revenue torepparttar 145756 business.

To be able to compete with those webmasters who have large sums of money available for promotion do you feel you need to think smarter or work harder?

Both think smarter and work harder. My working week is working around 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, it doesn't give me much time for a social life, but if I putrepparttar 145757 hard work in now, in years to come that hard work will come to fruition. The great thing about webmaster forums like is that you can learn from other webmasters, and all ofrepparttar 145758 experience and knowledge I have gained running this business has been from more experienced webmasters and search engine specialists.
