| There are a number ways you can go about marketing your |
website, many of which are quite inexpensive. Effectively
marketing your Home website is vital to your ultimate
success. In fact, the key to growing a business, and
particularly a new Home Business, is marketing. Once you
have a domain name (which can be bought for as little as $7
these days) and a reliable host (as little as $5 a month for
reasonable one), you can get going on promoting your
business on the Net. This can be done for free in some cases
if you are willing to spend the extra time on the project.
If you are unwilling to do this, you can pay someone to
optimize your site and promote it for you, which is
generally cost effective.
It is possible, however to promote your business online with
no marketing budget. The key is to market it aggressively,
guerilla marketing style. This means using every free
marketing resource at your disposal, such as free
classifieds, newsgroups, search engine promotion, niche
directories, free-for-alls, blogs, e-mail signature lines,
message and bulletin boards and free mailing opt-in lists
and ezines, to name just a few. Just don't spam, whatever
you do. There are many free resources throughout the web
covering these free methods. You can sign up for their free
newsletters or look for their websites using your favorite
search engine. Speaking of search engines, most of the
traffic on the internet still comes from the free engines
such as Google, despite a recent influx of pay per click or
pay per performance search engines such as Overture.
Offline methods includes distributing newsletters with your
product or service and contact number listed inside, trade
shows, brochures, flyers, stationary, advertising in either
local or regional newspapers and/or "free shoppers", and
passing out audio cassetes about your product or business to
others who might be interested. The potential marketing
techniques are almost limitless and it may be best to look
to your "starter kit" or starter guide as it will probably
go into great detail about which offline marketing methods
have been proven to work best in that particular product or
line of business. The bottom line is, action always beats
inaction, as you gain experience and create a synergy that
push your Home Business to your goals.
