4 Easy Ways To Promote Your Website Online
By  Mindy Benkert

Creating your website is the easy part
compared to what comes next –
promoting it.

Website promotion is not only a task
that you must do continually, but it’s
also going to take some time and effort before you start seeing results. Fortunately,
there are many different ways to advertise your business online, and while some work,
others don’t, so it’s really going to be a matter of trial and error to figure out what
works for you.

To get your promotional endeavors off to a good start, here are 4 popular and easy
ways to advertise your website online:

Article Marketing:

Writing and submitting articles to free reprint article directories is a great way to
create incoming links to your website. The purpose of article marketing is to allow
other website owners and bloggers to use your articles on their sites, and in return,
they must keep the resource box with your website link in tact at the bottom of your
article, which can then direct traffic from their website to yours.


One of the great things about blogs is that they are relationship builders. As readers
come to know and trust you, they will become interested in what you have to say.
Using a blog will give you the means to write up posts that include links to your
website where your readers can get more information, such as reading a new article
you’ve added, or checking out a product that you are an affiliate for. Once you have
an established readership, blogging will truly become beneficial to your promoting
your website.

Email Newsletters:

Building a list and creating an email newsletter will allow you to send out a monthly
or even weekly email to your subscribers. You can focus the topic of your newsletter
around your website’s purpose, and provide readers with quality articles, reviews,
and updates. This method enables you to reach your target market, and gain quality
traffic to your website by promoting yourself in your emails. You can do that by
inserting your website link in the signature line of your emails, and reminding them
that they can go to your website for more information. You can also use “teasers” to
articles that are published on your website. So instead of sending your readers an
entire article, just give them the first couple of paragraphs to read with a link to your
website where they can read more.

Message Boards/Forums:

Message boards and forums are not only a great networking tool, but they also give
you the ability to promote your website to other members. You can advertise your
website in the signature line that appears at the bottom of your post, and interested
readers can click your link to go to your website. However, there is more to be gained
from message boards and forums then simply advertising in your signature line. By
being an active participant, you can build relationships with other members to
increase your credibility and readership in the long-term. So in order to really achieve
the benefits of message boards and forums, it’s best if you only join a few of these sites
and visit them on a regular basis.
