Have you ever wondered why some websites get a thousand hits a day while others don't? Well, the secret lies in something called 'website promotion'.
When I mean 'website promotion' it does not require you to spend loads on money to ensure that your site stands out. In fact one can easily promote their sites and at the same time save money.
1. Free Links
There are so many sites out there which offer free links. Contact the webmaster and offer to exchange links. By doing this you are not spending a cent and yet your site gets exposed too.
2. Free Submission to Search Engines
This is one which I often do for my websites. The result is amazing. At one go you can choose to submit to a lot of search engines. Just type 'free submission' in any search engine and you will be able to get the sources for submitting your site.
3. Word of Mouth
Have a new site to promote? Just spread the word around to anyone and everyone you know. Let your family and friends know about the site and tell them to inform their friends about it too.
4. Print URL
Printing the url of your site in namecards & letterheads is another way to increase hits to your site. The more publicity your site gets the more visitors it earns!
5. Submit Content
Are you a pro at a specific topic? If you are write articles and submit them to various web portals. At the end of the article put a link to your site. In this way those who read your articles will click to visit your site.
The above are some ways on how you can promote your site without burning a big hole in your pocket. Have fun promoting your site!
