Internet marketing direct sales is the fastest way to make money from online businessÂ today. But, it is important to find a business with the right system and compensation plan that will give you the opportunity to be successful and achieve this goal. Once you have this in place, you can plan and implement a marketing strategy for your home business by utilising some of the following free methods.
Whatever business you decide to do, whether it be a traditional brick and mortar business or you choose to make money on the internet, you will need to develop a marketing strategy to promote your business. There are numerous ways to do this and I would like to showÂ you a few of the many strategies I use to generate traffic.Â Â All of these ideas are free andÂ proven to beÂ very effective in promoting your online business which is crucial to being successful.
Let's look at Article Marketing
Article Marketing is a very powerful technique that youÂ can use to promote yourÂ home based businessÂ and drive traffic to your website. Anyone can learn to write articles and the plan is to just get started. Don't worry about writing the perfect article the first time, because you won't, that only comes with practice..
There is a saying among all successful online entrepreneurs - and that is â¬Åcontent is king. Knowing and understanding this will give you the jump on your competitors and if you learn to develop and implement this one strategy you will certainly drive traffic to your website which you can then convert into sales.
The other great advantage about article marketing is that it is completely free. Once you have your article ready to go with a well chosen title you are ready to submit it to article publishing sites for distribution. You will find there are many article directories and you should use as many as you can.
Another benefit of article marketing is the resource box or your profile information. Here you can input some details about you and your business opportunity and this gives the the reader an opportunity to know more about you.Â People interested in your business opportunity will want to know more about you as a person and form a relationship with you. Making money online operates in the same way as a traditional business in that it is built on trust and respect. People will join your business because of you, not what our business opportunity has to offer.
Another very powerful free marketing strategy that is under-utilized is forum marketing. This is a great tool you can use to promote your online business and all you need to do is search â¬Åonline forums, â¬Åbest online forums, etc. One of the best is Yahoo Answers. Here you can search for people that are looking for help online and this gives you an opportunity to give valuable advice and answer their questions in the forum provided. Similarly, as in article writing, you are given the opportunity to include your website address in the signature box right below the information you are providing and this gives visitors the opportunity to click on your link and visit your website. This is one of the best ways you can gain presence on the internet, build your creditability and get traffic to your website.
This is the online term given for â¬Åword of mouth advertising - the most efficient and reliable free advertising you can find. You provide something for free to people interested in your product or service and this will encourage them to spread the word on your behalf. There is no effort required on your part but the power is in creating exponential growth in a viral form similar to the spreading of a common cold virus from person to person with every customer becoming a virtual â¬Åcarrier of the message.
If your product is of high quality or the service you are offering is exceptional, your existing satisfied customers will spread the word about you and it doesn't cost you a penny. How often have your heard â¬Åword of mouth advertising is the best way to get your product or service into the marketplace? This is an incredible way to get a presence for your online business very quickly on the internet. There have been many studies that show an average customer online shares their experience with twelve others, and they in turn each share that with twelve other people and so on and so on - so you can see the power in viral marketing when promoting your online business.
All these marketingÂ ideas are free and it's a good idea to start with one and master that before moving on to the next one.
