So you do you get your internet marketing project off the ground and bound for success? Traffic plain and simple is the answer. Traffic is the lifeblood of every business and even more so for an internet business where you cannot depend on walk in or drive by traffic. On the internet, your customers need to know you exist before they can find you. But the problem is that most of us have no advertising budget or at best a minimal one. Do not despair. Here are 10 web advertising ideas and most won’t cost you a cent.
Idea 1 – Put up forms on your site offering free help and advice in your area of expertise. This is a great way to build a relationship with future customers.
Idea 2 – Start a newsletter to build even more of a relationship with those future customers.
Idea 3 – Set up surveys on your site. It is a great way to gather information about your potential customers. You can later use that information for very directed marketing.
