If you're starting on a shoestring, you'll still be able to build traffic without spending much money.

1. Write articles. As a writer, this should be a simple thing for you to do. Even if your chosen field isn't article writing, you can still easily create articles that readers will read.

Luckily, writing articles can be as simple as creating a list of items and then adding detail to each one.

You can also write step-by-step instructions on how to do something. This technique will work with just about any type of writing because internet surfers are always looking for how to information.

2. Create an optin list. The one thing that all ofrepparttar 129290 top marketers online agree on is that you must have a list.

There are two ways you can do this.

First, you can purchase leads, but make sure you find a respectable dealer and make sure thatrepparttar 129291 leads you purchase are targeted to your market.
