5 Ways To Promote Your Business Online

by Mark J Flavin

A business without any marketing or promotion is likened to a shop opened in the midst of a jungle. Other than wild animals who visit your shop every day, no one will come to your shop as they don't know that your shop exists.

It is important to promote your business online, and to get your name out there so people will come to your site and buy. Here are some ways you can do it:

1. Autorespdonders Getting subscribers into your list lets you urge them to visit your site in order to buy your products. Having a list of subscribers also helps in a way that they can be giving you free advertising by the word of mouth.

There are a lot of good autoresponder services that you can use out there, and some of them: http://www.aweber.com, http://www.getresponse.com and http://www.emailaces.com. The ones mentioned are paid autoresponder services, which can ensure you the stability and safety for your list of subscribers. If you prefer to use a free one, you can use http://www.freeautobots.com.

2. Swapping ads This is an act where you meet another Internet marketer in your field and you request to send each other's solo ad(single advertising in an email) and urge your own subscribers to sign up for another's newsletter, e-zine, or mini course.

This is a very useful way of getting more subscribers and it works without a doubt. People are hungry for information and providing them with it is what they want.

3. Joint venture The greatest advertising - joint venturing. A joint venture partner is likened to a business partner, and it is for sure that both of you will promote each other fully, without holding back. When your subscribers know that both of you are partners, they tend to trust your recommendations and your joint venture partner will get advertised strongly as well.

On the other side, your joint venture partner will do the same and both of you receive great publicity.

4. Write articles This is a very great way of advertising yourself. Writing articles and submitting your articles to article directories make sure that you will get readers and they'll know who you are when you include your resource box at the end of your articles.

A resource box usually allows you to introduce who you are, so you can include your name, followed by a link as well so that people can visit your site and from there you'll gain massive traffic.

5. Publish a newsletter Publishing a newsletter lets people subscribe to your list and receive your newsletters. From there, your subscribers get to know who you are, and the chances of them buying your products will also increase. We always buy from someone we know instead of a stranger, don't we?

Do this right and your marketing effort for your online business will be really successful. If you haven't gotten a subscriber list, start building one right away as it is the most important asset you will own anywhere in the future.
