Take a moment to think about how you would really answer this question. If given enough thought just about any business owner who utilizes the Internet for any purpose will likely find that whether or not they intentionally organized an Internet marketing campaign, they may already be marketing their products and services on the Internet. This article will examine some subtle ways business owners may already be marketing their business on the Internet.

Do you have a website for your business? Business owners who answer yes to this question are already marketing their products or services online just by virtue of the fact that they have a website online. Having a live website means there is the potential for curious Internet users to access your website. You may not be actively promoting your website but you may still find that your website generates interest in your products despite the lack of promotional endeavors; this is a form of passive marketing.

Do you participate in message boards and include a link to your website in your signature? Again business owners who answer yes to this question are already marketing their website online. Savvy business owners realize the importance of participation in industry related message boards to create an interest in their products and services, establish themselves as knowledgeable about the industry and offer a link to their own website even if it is in the signature line of their posts. However, even business owners who do not realize this may already be inadvertently enjoying the benefits of Internet marketing which result from message board participation just by doing something they enjoy and may be doing as a form of leisure activity.

Do you include keywords which are relevant to your business in the content of your website? Business owners who answer yes to this question are also already marketing on the Internet by optimizing their website for these keywords. These search engine optimization (SEO) affects the websites whether or not they were even aware of the concept of keyword density and how it can help to SEO a website. Business owners will likely use certain words often depending on the type of products and services they offer just because it is natural and logical to do so. This tendency, however, can result in search engines boosting your website rankings for these particular keywords. The concept of SEO is much more involved and complex than simply using keywords frequently but business owners can gain some benefit just by naturally applying relevant keywords to their website.

Do you solicit feedback from your customers online? This is yet another example of how business owners may be accidentally marketing their business on the Internet. Most business owners realize the importance of soliciting feedback from customers for business purposes and business owners who offer products online might solicit feedback in the form of online surveys. Although the business owners may be doing this simply for a business purpose the fact that it is done online makes it fall into the category of Internet marketing.

We have already discussed several ways in which business owners may already be marketing online but what about business owners who want to have an increased online presence? Business owners who may already be marketing online accidentally may wish to launch a full scale Internet marketing campaign. The best way to do this is to hire a consultant with experience in Internet marketing to assist you in creating a campaign which is effective for your target audience.

Article Submission – Google PR

While there is some debate among SEO experts, most agree that article submission will help gain a higher Google PR.

Article submission can help to make more web site sales, generate more traffic, increase your Google PR and even boost your Alexa rating. If done frequently and correctly, article submissions can help you to gain higher rankings on Google, Yahoo, and MSN. That will help drive more targeted visitors to your web site. Article Submission is a powerful search engine optimization tactic of gaining quality one way links to your sites. While there is some debate among SEO experts, most agree that article submission is among the best free methods of building free one way links.

Article submission can save hours of your time in getting one way links to your web site. Article submission is one proven link building strategy. Articles usually shouldn’t have more than two links in the Author Bio section and html is not allowed in the body, for the best approval results. Article writing and submission can give you high quality one way links and can result in a higher page rank in comparison to other SEO techniques.

These links will often help to increase your Google PR and move up your relevance in the search engine results. As you are probably aware, the PR of a web site that is pointing to yours plays a role in determining the value of your own web site in Google PR calculations, there by increasing your chances of gaining ground in the Search Engine Ranking Pages. The smaller directories with low page rank can also help to improve your Google PR. Articles are usually crawled very quickly and in most cases can be found in the SE’s in just a few days.

With submission software, you have to manage the submissions based on a list in the software, which may need to be updated occasionally. A good rule is to put the more comprehensive writing on your own web site and make a shorter version for submissions to other websites. Article submission software is one of the best internet marketing tools. There are many software solutions out there that can help to cut down the time for article submissions.

Article Marketing Strategy – Select Only The Best Directories And Ezines

Writing and marketing articles online is probably the most effective, most cost-effective way to publicize your website, and promote your products and services online. Articles found only on the website and not in their print publications means more opportunities for writers and experts.

article writing, seo, search engine optimisation, article marketing

Writing and marketing articles online is probably the most effective, most cost-effective way to publicize your website, and promote your products and services online. The Web is a printing press with an insatiable appetite for articles written by experts. There are literally millions of websites and ezines that are begging for good articles. They want people to submit good articles to them. They even search sites on the web for permission to use articles.

So, how do you know which sites to select?

Through my years of experience, and many conversations with the top Internet Marketers, in order to have the greatest impact, you need to use a 3-tiered article marketing approach targeting:

1. The major article directories like Ezinearticles.com, Goarticles.com, Ideamarketers.com and Articledashboard.com
2. Smaller niche directory sites that are related to your content
3. Niche ezine and website publishers who need and want quality related content that will add value to their website or email newsletter audience

My consulting clients ask me many times, “ What is the best way to find ezines and websites that are the most read so my article gets the most exposure?” That should not be the first question you ask yourself. Yes, you do want to find websites that are highly visited and ezines that are the most read – but more importantly, you want to focus on finding websites and ezine publishers within your specific niche that have strong emotional connections to their audience.

Most likely, you are already visiting their websites or subscribing to their ezines. If you don’t know who has a great ezine related to your industry niche, there are plenty of ezine directories like bestezines.com on the net that can guide you.

Other strategies include:

– Research your competitors – where are there articles being published?

– Perform a Google search. Just type in your industry or article topic followed by the words article submission. That’s how I helped our client’s book jump to the #2 spot on the NY Times Best Sellers List. I typed into Google, “health article submissions”, “medical article submissions”, and “thyroid dysfunctions article submissions” and discovered (among many other sites) the contact information for an About.com editor – one of the top 50 sites on the net today. After receiving the submission, the editor blasted an email book promotion to her entire list, giving Mark Hyman MD 1500 additional opt-in subscribers and much higher sales in just one day.

– Think about which organizations, your audience may belong to. If you’re a sales lead expert, like our client, Mac McIntosh, then the chances of your audience belonging to an organization such as the American Marketing Association are very, very high. With more than 200,000 registered users and more than 2 million visits each year from a wide range of influential decision makers, Mac McIntosh’s soon to be published article on the American Marketing Association’s website will provide him with an excellent opportunity to connect with the marketing community.

– And, don’t forget to check sites for magazines within your niche. More and more publications, are looking for fresh, new content for their website, to drive traffic up in order to sell more print magazines in the long run. This constant updating of articles found only on the website and not in their print publications means more opportunities for writers and experts. An article written by you published on sites like Entrepreneur Magazine and Mothering Magazine will give your company the vast amount of exposure and credibility it needs.

Follow these strategies and you will have a sound article marketing campaign.

Article Marketing To Boost Site Traffic

You’ve been writing great articles for your website or blog, keyword rich, insightful pieces that should be studied in marketing classes. You’ve probably seen an increase in site traffic since you started writing using SEO. But there’s another way to use the articles that you’re already writing to boost traffic even more.

Publish them on other sites.

It’s simple math. Your site receives 200 hits a day. Site B receives 500. If you get an article published on Site B, your…

You’ve been writing great articles for your website or blog, keyword rich, insightful pieces that should be studied in marketing classes. You’ve probably seen an increase in site traffic since you started writing using SEO. But there’s another way to use the articles that you’re already writing to boost traffic even more.

Publish them on other sites.

It’s simple math. Your site receives 200 hits a day. Site B receives 500. If you get an article published on Site B, your site and marketing links are exposed to 700 people.

Unfortunately, this can be easier said than done. You have to convince the editor or webmaster of Site B that your article is more worthy of publication than Joe Schmoe’s about the same subject. If you think you can, then you are all set to start your very own article marketing campaign and boost traffic to your site. Here’re some hints to sell articles for your article marketing campaign.

ARTICLE MARKETING STARTS WITH THE E-MAIL TO A PUBLISHER SITE

E-mail has become one of those quick forms of communication. We type them out real quick, using the first words and phrases that come to mind, and then send them off without a second thought, like leaving a voicemail. But in the case of article marketing (and everything else you use e-mail for), the e-mail is the first writing sample a buyer will read. If your e-mail is not professional and well written, there is no reason for a buyer to move onto the actual article. You will have failed the ever important first impression.

This is a failure that can be avoided by taking the time to edit the e-mail. Make sure that there are no grammatical mistakes, that your sentences make sense, and that you don’t have more words necessary. Other things like making sure the subject line is eye catching or addressing the e-mail to a specific person instead of a company or a “To Whom It May Concern” can make your article stand out in the crowd.

MARKET ARTICLES TO THE APPROPRIATE SITES

This one sounds like a no brainer, but at least now you can’t say nobody told you. Make sure that you send your articles to places that will actually publish them. This obviously applies to content (don’t send an article about high New York Society to a Mountain Climber’s website), but this also applies to style and voice and things like that. If you’re an edgy, sarcastic writer, you probably don’t want to be submitting to a serious, boring site. They simply won’t publish your article, and your article marketing campaign will be a waste.

Also, don’t just write an article and then try to get it published. This method might produce some results, but they will be few and far between and will require a lot of time and selling. Instead, write your articles with a specific site in mind. Go and read other articles on the site. Know the voice and structure of the already published articles. Review the submissions guidelines. Be familiar with policies. In the e-mail, include reasons that your article is a perfect match for their site. An article written with purpose for a specific site or group of sites will be more successful than one written without a destination in mind.

GRAMMAR, GRAMMAR, GRAMMAR

The whole point of article marketing is to convince people to click on the link to your site that you’ve included in your byline. You will lose a lot of credibility if your article is full of grammatical mistakes and poorly thought out sentences. Write several drafts of your articles. Make sure you’re saying what you mean. Once your article is perfect, have someone else read it to make sure you’re not blind. You’d be amazed what you miss in your own writing, even if you’re a professional editor. Doing this will A. Make editors more likely to accept your work and B. Give the reader the impression that you are professional, which will in turn make them try to find out what else you have to say.

REFER BACK TO YOUR OTHER ARTICLE WITH LINKS

If you can, include links in the body of your e-mail that will lead back to your site. After all, that is the entire point of article marketing. A good way to do this is to refer to an article that you’ve written in the past that is ‘coincidentally’ posted only on your website. People like more information, and if you tell them there is more on another site, chances are that they’ll go there, and you just got another hit.

Be careful not to overuse this technique. Too many links will make them commonplace and readers won’t notice them. Including one or two makes them special and probably worthwhile. Also, don’t link to irrelevant articles. Readers will just get annoyed and not browse around your site. The object of article marketing is to get people exploring your site. If they wind up at a random article, they’ll just close the window and go back to what they were reading, instead of stumbling across your affiliate marketing links.

SIGN YOUR WORK

Don’t ever forget about the signature or byline at the end of your article. This should include your name, of course, but also a link directly to your site’s homepage. You might also consider linking to a few related articles that are posted on your site. Anyone who enjoyed the article will take the time to see who wrote it and what their background or own personal ventures are, and chances are, they’ll click on the link to read more by you. The signature section is the climax of your article marketing campaign. It is where you are trying to guide readers with your article so they will see your links and visit your site and make you money. It’s that simple.

A Simple Procedure In Leaflet Designing

By , May 23, 2015 8:46 am

Leaflet is a way of showing your ideas as well as emotions in terms of words, pictures and then graphics. The way you present your ideas in the leaflet will determine or will influence the perception of your readers in terms of the messages conveyed in your leaflet.

Leaflet is a way of showing your ideas as well as emotions in terms of words, pictures and then graphics. The way you present your ideas in the leaflet will determine or will influence the perception of your readers in terms of the messages conveyed in your leaflet. The information in your leaflets will enable your customers to decide whether your information has relevance to them or is just a waste of their time.

The design of the leaflet must be created in such a way wherein the whole point you want to discuss in the leaflet are conveyed in a direct and concise manner that is effective enough in encouraging comments as well as action from the readers. In terms of the text to be used it must possess the following characteristics: persuasiveness, must be interesting, noteworthy and helpful. Create your text in such a way that it will leave a mark in the minds of its readers. And then be sure to use only short paragraphs and then make sure you mark them with headings. For sequential ideas make use of bullets since it is must easier to read. Also, for those information which you may want to give emphasis on you may highlight or make use of a different font and then bold the texts.

The picture design is also important in the leaflet since it will help you to convey your message more effectively. The pictures to be use for the leaflets will depend on the subject or the theme of your leaflet. The layout process entails for careful planning and this would require team work since you will be deciding on the type of text and pictures to be used for your leaflets. Layouting would require for initial sketches that would show where you want your text to be placed, where the headings will be placed, where the pictures will go, what colors are best for texts and for the background.

After the layout process will then commence the printing. The design would now be uploaded in the computer. The typing and the formatting of texts will need a word processing program such as MS Word. But for those expert computer users they may prefer to use QuarkXpress or Adobe Photoshop especially for the designing process. But for those who doesn’t have computers and don’t know how to use one there are professional printers out there where you may take your leaflet project. And if ever you find it a tedious task to visit every local print shop in your place you can always surf on the net for professional printers that offer affordable prices for your leaflet project. It is much easier and convenient searching online.

Things to remember to instruct your printers- the usual things that happen especially when you take your leaflet project to a printer is that they commonly cut the leaflet to size and so you must never forget to instruct them to leave a bleed margin. The bleed margin is usually a space of 2mm around the edge of the design which is commonly lost during the cutting process. Another thing, images should be saved as 300 dpi and stored in as JPG or TIF files. But if ever the quality of the image is too low then there is the possibility of its corners to go jagged. The paper to be use should also be given great consideration since papers that are too thin tend to blot when colors are applied.

Do You Really Know Why You Are Submitting Your Articles To Online Article Directories?

Article submission is perhaps one of the best ways to leverage your products and services on the Internet….that is, if done correctly, but like Link Exchange, I think it’s being abused.

That said, I don’t think Article Marketing is about to die. It’s alive and strong!

Article submission is perhaps one of the best ways to leverage your products and services on the Internet….that is, if done correctly, but like Link Exchange, I think it’s being abused.

That said, I don’t think Article Marketing is about to die. It’s alive and strong!

I have noticed that a lot of authors are submitting articles for the wrong reasons. Authors are submitting ‘half baked’ articles fueled by a ‘PageRank’ and ‘BackLink’ craze, something I find very fruitless. Like in link exchange, the search engines have wisened up and are getting better at weeding out ‘spam’.

It’s imperative that you submit ‘quality?articles. A badly written article may generate you that ‘backlink?that you so much desire, but the real purpose of submitting your article to an article marketing directory is to gain publishers who will willingly publish your articles on their websites, blogs and newsletters; that’s where the real traffic comes from. Publishers should ‘want’ to publish your article, hence the importance of good writing.

Submitting numerous short (less than 500 words), poorly and haphazardly written articles will do you no good. Also submitting the same article over and over with a few modifications is not acceptable; it’s duplicate content and defeats the purpose of a directory. An author needs to sit back, choose a good topic and come up with a article that is an effective marketing tool, an article that captivates the reader and makes him or her want to publish it, print and/or forward it to their friends.

Anything less is essentially a waste of time!

How many times have you seen a website with thousands of backlinks but with no ‘PageRank?or worse still does not feature in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Pages) at all. Too many, I must say. Too many article directories contain tons of ‘garbage’,…if ‘numbers’ is the game, then why do some of these directories with tens of thousands of articles have very low PageRank or in numerous instances none at all?

Quality rules!

As an author, your number one priority when writing an article is ‘quality and uniqueness? You must write powerfully and with purpose. Your writing must be attractive and persuasive, otherwise it’s not worth the trouble.

My suggestion: Write a few ‘very good articles’ and submit them to carefully selected article directories. Make sure it’s a well written and useful article….something site owners will want to publish in their blog, website or ezine.

As I post post my own articles to directories, I always find myself refining the article. This may or may not have any direct benefit but I strongly believe it’s part and parcel of the quality control process.

Personally, I don’t worry about PageRank or BackLinks, I also do not force feed my directory and I read each and every article that is submitted to the directory.

Write good articles and let it come to you naturally….the search engines will reward you as bloggers and webmasters post your articles on their sites, something they will only do if your writing is stimulating and relevant.

Look at your article as ‘Your Product’ or ‘Your Service’. A service or product that is not ‘choreographed’ properly will almost always be rejected. If you are having trouble writing, make time and study what the topnotch writers are doing. The Internet is ‘pregnant’ with excellent writers.

As an owner of an Article Directory, I demand from my authors that they make a serious attempt at writing quality articles. For example, I now do not accept anything less than 500 words in length…debatable yes, but shorter articles are usually badly written.

In summary, here are a few salient points to note:

1. Plan, be clear, be original, structured, substantive and interesting.

2. Your writing must be grammatically and syntactically correct. Spelling mistakes are a no-no! Proof read your articles.

3. Your article(s) should be at least 500 words long.

4. There are plenty of writing samples and guides all over the internet. Look for them and use them. Visit article directories and read the articles within. Nobody is asking you to re-invent the ‘writing wheel’, but it’s of utmost importance that you keep abreast with what the top authors are doing.

5. Get feedback from your friends and colleagues. Two or more heads have always been better than one.

6. Write on topics that mean something to you – passion breeds excellence.

7. Finally if writing is too laborious for you, hire a Ghost Writer and let him/her express your thoughts for you.

Article marketing should be a win-win situation for directory owners and authors, therefore responsible directory owners should guide their authors and help them improve their writing; such as digging up information for them and emailing it to them in the form of a weekly newsletter, a blog or a forum.

Additionally, directory owners should engage their authors in meaningful discussions on article and general marketing, as it is part and parcel of the cut throat Internet Marketing Game, a science that must be taken seriously.

Article Marketing-Both Sides of the Fence

By , May 17, 2015 12:32 pm

609

I have been submitting articles to article sites for quite a while now ?both manually and with the use of a submitter. I also have 6 article sites and accept auto-submitted articles to 4 blogs. So, I understand submission guidelines from both perspectives.

articles, article, write, links, subject, site, check, word, author’s resource, author’s, domain, sites, resource

Every site has its own set of guidelines ?but I think if you adhere to the following ?more of your articles will get published. It is best to check each site’s set of rules (but who has the time) or follow this basic set of do’s and don’ts.

1. Do submit articles on a regular basis
2. Do capitalize the first letter of every word in the subject line
3. Do check the spelling and grammar ?and then check it again
4. Do write original articles about topics you have a passion for
5. Do write articles that are about 400-800 characters in length ?too short and too long will be rejected
6. Do write an article ?not a blatant advertisement
7. Do check the paragraph formatting
8. Do write an informative Author’s resource box
9. Do use HTML tags (if allowed) ?I would demonstrate an example of a proper link ?but most likely it would cause the article to be declined. Just Google HTML link to see how to do it correctly

1. Don’t capitalize every letter in the subject line
2. Don’t bold the subject or your links
3. Don’t submit more than 2 links in the author’s resource box
4. Don’t put links in the text of the article
5. Don’t cloak links ?do it legally to get links back to your site
6. Don’t write an ad ?write an article (I know ?I already said this above)

Here are some general recommendations:
1. Get a real domain ?it is much more acceptable and professional than blogspot, angelfire, or any of the other free site places. If you want to have a blog ?get a domain and use wordpress ?the domain will cost all of about 8 dollars per year and hosting can be had for under $5 per year.
2. Use an autosubmitter. There are free and paid services ?either way ?your article(s) will be at hundreds or thousands of sites instead of one or two. Be advised that some article sites don’t accept articles submitted by autosubmitters ?but they are in the minority.
3. Visit your articles. Many article sites will send you an email that tells you that your article has been submitted. Go and look and make sure it looks OK, the link(s) are correct and then vote for it and if the site has social bookmarks ?bookmark it.
4. If you use Private Label Rights (PLR) articles ?change them ?make them different so that they are not the same as a bazillion other articles online.
5. Check the sites?guidelines ?some don’t accept gambling articles, sexually oriented articles, etc. Some will even decline your article if it doesn’t pass their internal word search. I have had some declined for using the word “sex?or “marijuana?in the article. Even though the “sex?article was health related and the “marijuana?article was a travel advice article informing travelers not to smuggle drugs. Sometimes you can’t win.
6. Don’t get frustrated. It can take time for the articles to get indexed in the search engines and it can take time for the article site owners to approve your articles. Just keep plugging away and it will pay off.
7. Quality is better than quantity. Just cranking out crap articles daily is not as good as writing 2 or 3 good articles every week.
8. Take time with the subject. If the subject is boring ?most likely the article will not get read. Be creative.
9. Write 2 or 3 sentences in the Author’s resource box. Tell us about yourself and why you are the expert on this topic or why we should click your link.

Hopefully this helps you in getting more of your articles published.

Article Marketing: How To Write Great Articles

By , May 15, 2015 1:02 pm

All the hype nowadays in web-based industries is the pioneering concept called article marketing. Article marketing is one type of Internet advertising that has proven to be both instructive and effective, because Internet users are being given useful information on their related searches, through short but helpful articles with an accompanying link to the author’s site at the bottom part of the article. Website owners are now given a new way to market their goods and services, where they can post their articles in a number of directories in exchange for potential views and increased website traffic.

All the hype nowadays in web-based industries is the pioneering concept called article marketing. Article marketing is one type of Internet advertising that has proven to be both instructive and effective, because Internet users are being given useful information on their related searches, through short but helpful articles with an accompanying link to the author’s site at the bottom part of the article. Website owners are now given a new way to market their goods and services, where they can post their articles in a number of directories in exchange for potential views and increased website traffic.

So how do you write such articles? Article writing encompasses initially mass print media like magazines, newspapers, and the like. The articles written in these media are usually long winded and detailed, and very often command longer attention spans from the readers. Newspapers and magazines pay their writers to write such long articles because their readership depend on how wide range the topics are, and how up to trend the issues are. But the articles employed in Internet article marketing should not be in parallel with the articles written in print. The web is a never-ending source of research material and if the readers do not get what they want instantly by reading the articles published in directories, they could turn to other sources because the choices are endless. Therefore the articles have to be written in such a way that the attentions of the Internet users are utilized to the fullest degree.

Short articles of about 600-800 words are most ideal. This way, all the important elements of a subject matter is tightly woven into the article, thus creating less risk of boring the readers with unnecessary matters. Imagine an article that has too much introduction, an incoherent body, and a hanging conclusion- no one would take the effort to have to analyze what is written, because people want straight up facts. They want to read and to understand each sentence, and ideally to be more informed about the given issue, period.

For example, an article that deals with the benefits of water therapy would want to consider including highlights on how the consumption of water could help in eradicating toxins built up by faulty eating. And then this could be explained further by noting specific studies that have dealt with natural remedies alongside the use of conventional commercial medicine. The advantages of utilizing natural therapies would be that there are less possibilities of side effects and a less overworked liver, as this essential body organ is primarily responsible in the flushing out of unwanted toxins from overeating, unnatural diets, and of course modern pills and medicines.

The article has to be persuasive, too. Persuasive, yes, but not in the obvious way of trying to sell something, credible in the sense that straight facts, and not just mere opinions, are being presented. Statistical studies that can be verified are helpful tools in persuasive delivery because there are quite a number of surveys over the Internet that provides clear facts. A persuasive article would also want to consider using quotes from reliable personalities on the subject matter. This adds credibility to the written article and considerably increases general interest. Anyone who would read something that was verified by an expert, and can be traced back to historical truths would most likely begin to form certain positive beliefs.

Then there is the issue about the target market. And in this case, since the articles can be read by many, it would be more appropriate to say target audience. Of course, not everyone is interested with the things that are written in the articles. There would be people who would not care less what the topics are about simply because not every topic can elicit a favorable response from everyone. The reason why businesses have to target a market niche is because certain demographics will veer away from what the popular trends are. Age, gender, cultural differences, and the like are just some of the demographics to be considered. If a certain article topic for example is targeted to people with age over 40, perhaps the use of modern slang and the online chat lexicons should be discouraged. The audiences are the judges on the written articles, and if they are disappointed with what they have read, they would most very likely switch to other websites, or to choose the articles that are in tune with what they are searching for.

Asking questions on the topics too would help very largely. This allows for review on the article that will be published. Will the target audience care to hear this? Will this information drive be helpful? Will these people be propelled to read further and to click on the site located at the resource box? Or will they just end up getting bored on mid-page and abandon the site altogether? These are just some of the crucial questions that need to be dealt with in creating well-written contents in article marketing.

A well-written article too, is one that appears not be blatantly selling anything, but one that disguises merely as simple information drive. People usually have adverse reactions to annoying salesmen knocking on doors in the rush of morning hours, that when they are usually presented anything that merits a sale, the mechanical response would almost always be in the negative. Article marketing seeks to build up a wide readership over an extended period of time by publishing relevant and up-to-date articles, and not to drive would-be clients away because of the obvious want of easy profit. The wide source of information, and the relatively easy access to it have made our audiences more intelligent buyers, and their knowledge compels them to make choices that they can benefit from even in the long term.

Do not be left behind. Every penny is worth it with using Google and Yahoo’s advertising as long as it’s done correctly and not hap hazzardly.

2) Exchange or Trade Links with other sites

If you’re doing link exchanges with other sites, both of you will benefit from the efforts both of you do to enhance your sites traffic. When one site features another sites link, they will provide one another with the traffic that each of them generate. The efforts are doubly beneficial because it would seem like both of you are working to generate more traffic. The more links traded with more sites, the more traffic that each could receive. It’s a win-win situation.

3) Use Viral Marketing

Viral marketing allows you to spread the word about your company and product without the out of pocket expense. This is a marketing method that can be quite sneaky; you can attach your company’s name, product or link to a certain media such as a funny video, entertaining game, an interesting article or a gossip or buzz. With this method, people get infected with the creativity and entertainment of the medium that they will pass it on to many people.

4) Search and use proper keywords or keyword phrases for your sites content

Search engines look for certain keywords that you have on your webpages and they show you in their results page. In doing so, having the right keyword and keyword phrase is a high requirement in ranking high in search engine results. You could write your own content or you could hire someone to do it for you.

5) Write Articles that can lead traffic to your site

Submit articles to article directories that contain the same subject that your site deals in. If you sell car parts, write press releases and articles about cars and car parts. Attach your sites description and services at the end of the article as well as the link to your website.

6) Join forums and form online communities

Capture a market and show your expertise and credibility. When you build a good foundation for your site and have great content, people will trust you and will pass it on to many people they trust. Either through email, a newsletter article or their blog. Your traffic will certainly increase, because they know that you can provide what they need.

7) Offer newsletters.

If many people know what you are about and your existence is shared with many others, you will find a loyal following of people that trust and believe in you, in the end they can provide you with more traffic by recommendation. If you arouse the curiosity of your customers they would be pushed to help you with your traffic.
