Free Advertising Techniques For Your Online Business

Free advertising can be the holy grail for your online home business and for good reason... it doesn't cost anything and it can produce amazing results! Some of the best advertising available online is free, so why wouldn't you want to take advantage of it? While free advertising does not cost you money it will cost you time, so be careful when choosing a way to advertise for free.

Belwo are a few proven ways to get free advertising for your online business:

Article Submissions

Article writing (and submitting) is probably the best way to get free traffic. Sitting down and writing an article each week can be time consuming, but it is also one of the best ways to get free traffic. Any market, any product, or any service can use article submissions for online business promotion.

Email Signatures

This is something a lot of people used to do, but not many people do it anymore. Maybe because email is becoming a less important part of online business, but it is still a useful home business tip. At the end of each email you send out, include a small signature with your web address at the bottom. Free advertising for doing nothing more than you normally would have done anyway.

Free Ebooks

Creating an ebook and giving it away for free is a great way to get free traffic to your website. Your ebook doesn't have to be long, in fact it would be best to keep it short, just make sure you give away some good solid information. Inside the ebook tell people that they can also give the ebook away to friends, their lists, on their websites, or to anyone else who may want it. This is viral marketing at it's best.

Joint Ventures

If you have a product or service for sale this is one of the best free traffic methods for you. Finding joint venture partners who are willing to advertise your product to their customers for a percentage of each of the sale. Sure you may be giving away a percentage of your sales, but you spend no money to get many more customers than you could have gotten on your own.

Search Engine Optimization

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the mother of all free advertising methods, but it also takes the most time to get results. If you're not experienced at search engine optimization then trying to get good rankings for a competitive keyword is almost like pulling your own teeth . This doesn't mean that you shouldn't try to get your website listed highly in major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and MSN because, if you can do it, then it will be the best free traffic technique you will ever find!


You probably won't get a lot of free traffic from this method, but it's a great way to get one way links to your website. Sending testimonials to product owners and letting them put it on their website, with a link to your website, is an easy way to get some free traffic.

Dedicated to your success,
