Advertising on a Budget

Advertising on a Budget

How much do you need to spend for effective advertising? Does it take money to make money? Not necessarily!
I started out by paying substantial amounts of money to advertise. I received poor results. I have found from my own experience and mentoring received by experts who have made thousands on the Internet, that you have to do a lot of small actions to get your website recognised as well as advertising.

Consistent action everyday is what will build your business. Plan your time to advertise and work on your Internet business, be disciplined with your time. Initially, I would log in to free ads for example, and post my advert. But then another ad would catch my eye, then another and so on. Before I knew it I had spent my allotted time surfing the net! Treat this as you would any other job by prioritizing and making a schedule for your time. Become organised and spend a set amount of time preparing to make your life easier.

You can create folders for your ads, spend some time creating ad titles and ad bodies, at least 30 of each. When it comes to posting your ads, you can copy and paste a different ad each time. You need to post free ads consistently to build up traffic to your website. Have another folder with a list of websites to post ads to, preferably free ads. Just type “free ads” in Google for a list.

One of the best ways to promote your business, in my opinion, is to pay for a solo ad. This is an advertisement that is sent out to people individually so you don’t have other adverts distracting the viewer. These are placed through ezines. Subscribe to several and decide which one you think suits your business best, then place an order for a solo ad!

Whilst placing ads, whether free or paid, you need to get yourself and your business out there into the big wide world of Internet marketing. Just like any other business, the more times people read about you the more they will come to trust and respect you. Above all, in your ads, articles or anywhere else be honest about your business and don’t make false claims.

A good way to get yourself and your business noticed is to write an article. Keep your article original and interesting and maybe someone will use your article for their blog or website. The only condition to this is that your article remains intact with your details on it-free publicity! Article writing can become addictive-be warned!

You also need a blog-your own page where you can write about anything you like, usually promoting your website and include links where possible.

Forums are an excellent way to gain credence. Just be honest and don’t blatantly advertise. You are usually allowed a ‘signature’ that appears at the end of every forum post with your details and a link to your site. You can gain a lot of knowledge and tips from forums. If you have a problem, why not post a question on a forum-you could get a large and knowledgeable response.

And my favourite-Press Release!

Type “free press release” into Google and you will find plenty to choose from. Half of all Internet users visit an online news site every month so if you have something interesting to share, a press release is worth spending time on. There are specific formats for writing press releases but the terms and conditions are on each PR website.

All these methods are free or low cost depending on your budget but are all ways to get yourself out there.
Try to do one of these actions every day, whether it’s posting a few ads or writing a blog, make a timetable for the week. Above all, DON’T GIVE UP! This all takes time but you will get there in the end and the result will be worth it.
