1. Holding a contest or sweepstakes is a proven way to promote your
web site.
You can announce your site to hundreds of web sites that list
free contests and sweepstakes. Send out a press releases about your
contest or sweepstakes.
Ask entrants to your contest or sweepstakes
if they would accept offers from
your business in the future by e-mail.

2. Use online chat rooms to promote your web site. Find the right chat
room where your target audience would gather. Announce to everyone
in the chat room something interesting or free that's offered on your
web site. This will draw visitors to your web site. Always be aware of
chat room rules before engaging visitors in a sales pitch that may be
considered spam.

3. Cross promote your web site with other sites. I try to find other web
sites that have the same target audience, but are not in direct competition
with my business. Doing cross promotions with other businesses increases
your profits, sales, and beat your competition. You can find businesses to
cross promote all over the Internet.

4. You can easily promote your web site by using traffic generators. It could
be a free e-zine, service, e-book, contest etc. Giving away traffic genrators
gives you the opportunity to get free advertising by including your ad on
them. There are online directories that will also let you submit your freebie information. You
can even let other people give away your traffic generators.

5. Posting messages to e-mail discussion lists is a great way to promote
your web site. An e-mail discussion lists a group of people connected
together via e-mail that can communicate with one another. When you
post a message to a list include your signature file at the end. Include
an attention getting sentence why they should visit your web site.

Quote of the Day:

"The universal regard for money is the one hopeful fact in our civilization.
Money is the most important thing in the world. It represents health, strength, honour, generosity and beauty. Not the least of its virtues is that it destroys
base people as certainly as it fortifies and dignifies noble people."
-- George Bernard Shaw

Have an Awesome weekend my friends.

thanks for the list,

you mention chat rooms, do you see that as being different from online forums

all the best,

Derrall, online forums are different.
However also an excellent choice.

This looks like something I should understand, but really it's still so much computer speak it's going to take a while.
Maybe if I stare hard at this blog, it'll enter my brain through my eyes.......(sigh) nope, not working.
Thanks for giving me this new puzzle Ken. It's going to make me rich one day I'm sure, God bless you..............

Do you know of any for those who promote WA?
Reply
Ken-Pringle Premium
I do not have any favorites to recommend.
You want to find chat rooms that talk about
marketing and building websites and training.
Not just WA. Remember you want people to
join you not just talk about WA. Google will
be the place to find them. I hope that helps.

Some excellent tips. The email discussion list seems a tad antiquated though, do these actually exist?
Reply

Yes Sarah, actually some of us old timers still have
e-mail discussion lists that we communicate with regularly.
They can be of great benefit to all involved..
