Many people fail for the reason that they end up spending more money than what they bring in. All of their money is spent on marketing their respective businesses. With free
1. Using the power of Web 2.0! aka Social Media Sites. – By getting on sites like these, you will be able to connect with thousands of people that think just like you. Share ideas, information, tips, and even build your prospect base. Join sites like Myspace, Facebook, Squidoo, etc. Build relationships and network with many like minded people. Find lots of individuals who need help with a certain problem and be the one to solve it. Joining sites like these will cost you nothing, but the amount of people you can network with are priceless.
2. Write Articles – Submitting articles is probably the best free
Some article directories send your articles out to other web sites that may request it. Now you have another article with your links somewhere else. People who have websites that have your subject matter in common with their site may use your article as content. Your article goes on their site with all your links! That means more exposure for your free
Of course, there are some paid directories but why not take advantage of great and effective marketing from free article submission.
3. Using Videos! – When you make a video and upload it to a site like YouTube, it can be seen by thousands of people. The exposure is priceless not only to your business, but to promoting yourself! Promoting yourself and showing people who you are, what you are about, and sharing what you know and how you can help others is a great way to use video instead of just making a video for the purposes of a sales pitch. Videos are a great tool if used effectively. Especially if you have your videos on many other video sites as well!
4. Organic Search Engine Traffic – Getting search engine traffic is great for free
Your articles, videos, websites, or blogs, or any other online media you choose to market your business can be picked up by the search engines if optimized properly. Your objective is to get as much internet ‘real estate’ as you can and have it listed high in a search engine like Google.
Using the above techniques together should help you generate quality leads and it wont cost you an arm and a leg. I personally use them and I recommend them because they work. Make sure you put in the time and work to get everything up and running and pace yourself. Building your pages for the social media sites takes time and should be taken seriously. Videos you create also take time and you should get better with each video you make so dont be discouraged if you don’t like your first video.
Always provide quality services, products, valuable information, and your prospects should keep coming back to you for more.
