Six(6) Ways to Promotion Success!

Written by Clifton W. Bonney

I have been promoting websites onrepparttar NET for some time now, and have seen many marketing stategies come and go. You've seen it, Expert A(Dr. Know-It-All) told you to go to his website forrepparttar 125249 very BEST promotion onrepparttar 125250 net. "I''ll do everything for you"repparttar 125251 Dr says. He must know, right? So, you send lots of money, and wait forrepparttar 125252 traffic. Hmmm... didn't happen. No increase in hits. Well, it must have been Dr. Know-It-All. I'll try Expert B, Dr. No-You-Don't. Surely HE will be better thanrepparttar 125253 last because....Yahdah...Yahdah...Yahdah! Again, some big money sent...few results. So, out of desperation and a huge pain in my wallet, I finally formed my own company that I KNEW would be uncommonly useful through my trial and error experience. Hence...Clifton Enterprises' website called Click City was born. All ofrepparttar 125254 information in this article is available atrepparttar 125255 City.....So................ If you are planning to keep up with what's working NOW, I suggestrepparttar 125256 following six ways to assure success with your advertising dollars. 1. E-Zines The most amazing and under-used tool isrepparttar 125257 POWER ofrepparttar 125258 e-zine! Think about it: How many times have you deleted an E-Zine because you didn't have time, or you assumed there was nothing in it for you. Wrong on both counts. Most online magazines have subscriber bases of over one thousand, many have more. If you place your ad in several of these @ $15-75/ad, you have substantially increased your visibility without much output. The more subscribers,repparttar 125259 more people see your message. Choose e-zines with a good base for maximum exposure, and subscribe to several at once. Read them, decide which to advertise in, and go for it. It's very inexpensive promotion. You'll find one at Click City-at end of article! 2. Opt-in lists Opt-in lists have become one ofrepparttar 125260 fastest growing promotional tools available lately. There are pitfalls, however. If 20,000 people join a list, and only 10% post their ad to YOUR email daily. Do you think anyone is reading YOUR ad? I think NOT! What's going to happen to your mailbox? So..... Join several lists and send your message to thousands DAILY. There are many free lists with hundreds and hundreds of members, however don't expect your message to be read. Find lists with memberships of 100-1000! You have a better chance of being seen. I wouldn't join any list with more than 1000 members unless there were other benefits of membership.

Site Promotion

Written by Byron Hunte

Many people are new torepparttar web and there seems to be a shortfall in basic information aimed at helpingrepparttar 125248 beginner.

Site promotion isrepparttar 125249 key to successfully building up your business onrepparttar 125250 Internet and here are some tips for newcomers that don't cost any money and which took me a considerable time to formulate.

1. Submit site to search engines Here I have learned to avoid autosubmit software programmes and that best results are obtained by submitting *manually* torepparttar 125251 top 10 engines. This way you can accommodate each one's quirks and foibles. It is time consuming but worth it.

2. Submit site to Directories These are different to search engines in that they have their own categories within which enquirers can find a listing ofrepparttar 125252 sites that interest them without necessarily using a search button. In my view, this isrepparttar 125253 way Joe public will look for his information inrepparttar 125254 future and, in my opinion, directories will soon outstrip engines in terms of usage. Pay attention to getting your site listed on as many directories as possible, especiallyrepparttar 125255 Open Directory Project as their database is used by many ofrepparttar 125256 top search engines and directories.

3. Web Rings These are associations of web sites with similar focus. If you join one, you will get a web ring logo atrepparttar 125257 bottom of your site which will allow your visitor to move on to browse all other sites withinrepparttar 125258 ring. Similarly, this will allow visitors to other sites withinrepparttar 125259 ring to find your site and increase your traffic. Some of these rings are huge and others quite tiny. It depends on what sphere you are operating in but, either way, it is another good way to gain additional traffic for your site.

4. E-mail discussion lists I started one for people interested in starting their own web business (which is what my company does) and which can be joined from my site. This is rigorously kept spam free by me (anyone posting ads to it is ejected without trial) and allows venture capitalists, angels, incubators and entrepreneurs to find each other and discuss common experiences and solutions. Sig files are allowed on my list and I have had good hits from my own, especially asrepparttar 125260 members ofrepparttar 125261 list are, by definition, my target audience.
