4 Free Traffic Strategies

Do you have an online business and a web-site set up? Do you know how to get visitors to your site without spending a fortune doing so. I am going to share 4 ways for you to drive some traffic to your site for free.

1. Free Classified Ads- You can find a variety of these sites online, and most of them are free, a good indicator to see if they get a lot of traffic is to see if they have big name advertisers on the home page. Make sure you have a catchy title and a few lines telling about the benefits of what you have to offer. Don’t forget the call to action, you must tell people what to do, or they will just read your ad and move on.

2. Article Marketing- Do you know what your niche is? This is an important part of article marketing, start writing informational articles about what you do or what you are selling, make the articles about 500 words or more. Give value in your articles, tips to help others benefit with what you do. The great part about article marketing is they let you leave your affiliate link in the resource box, this is at the bottom of the article, where you also can have a few lines letting others know what you do. You can do a Google search and find quite a few directories to submit your articles to all for free. For those of you who don’t think you can write your own articles you can always hire a ghost writer, but this of course will defeat the purpose of free marketing so I would just suggest just start studying what others are writing and get started it will get easier as you go.

3.-Writng a Blog- You can start up your own page in a less than a few hours its really pretty easy to set up. You can get started with just one page at first and then add to it as you go. I would suggest you go to ping-o-matic and set up your page, this is also very simple to do just let them know what your sites about and put in your link. This is a great way to get your page in the search engines. Now with just one ping from you your site will be noticed.

4. Visiting Forums- Start by visiting forums in your niche, just look around for awhile and see what others are talking about. Then when you notice a problem that you can help out with, start giving valuable information to them. Do not promote your business or you will be banned from the forum, just join in and start chatting. Start your own conversations by asking questions, others will follow up with answers for you. The great part is you affiliate link goes with every comment that you make.

Don’t forget to track all of your advertising, this a very important part of your marketing, if you don’t do this you will have no idea if it is working for you or not. Now you have a few different ways to start getting traffic for free, go out and get started.
