How to Drive Customers to Your Website
If you've got more time than money, and you're looking for a low cost way to market your business, then you've come to the right place.
Here are some tips that you can use to market your business for little or no cost.
- Build a website. For as little as $5 a month you can create a website and have it hosted on GoDaddy.com.
GoDaddy.com even has a place where you can design your own web pages using a variety of templates.
A few keystrokes, and you can have it loaded onto your own domain, which you can purchase for as little as $2.
- Create a blog. If writing a blog seems like something only your teenage daughter would do, think again.
In recent years, businesses have flooded the Internet with blogs that provide readers access to expertise from small business owners just like you.
Blogs create an excellent opportunity for you to share your knowledge and get your name out to the masses - some of whom may be interested in what you have to say and sell.
Check out the free easy-to-use Blogger, Typepad, or WordPress sites for more information on how to begin your blog.
- Link submissions. Exchanging links with complementary websites is a great way to draw traffic to your website.
You can ask individual site webmasters if they would be interested in exchanging links. Or, Build Reciprocal Links offers a one-stop link exchange service - in some cases, for free.
Whatever business you have, having a website is a must. By following the steps above, you'll have customers flocking to do business with you online.
