Can anyone suggest free advertising online for my holiday house rental?

Post your WANT. It’s like Craigslist, but reversed. And really different. At Ubokia, you’re the rockstar. Post exactly what you want and sellers respond to you. Only talk to sellers you choose.

Question by : Can anyone suggest free advertising online for my holiday house rental?
Hi all,

I have just started my latest venture…a holiday rental cottage in Gippsland, Vic.
I am new to the business, so would appreciate any tips.
In particular any information on where I can advertise for free (tight budget!) online?

I am also keen to know if there is any groups perhaps that are owners of B&B’s or Holiday accom’s?

Thanks in advance. 🙂

Why expect to do something for free when you are running a business!!!!!

Any online site incurs costs (just like you’re own website) so you’re going to pay something to cover costs. However,you’ll find any accomodation association probably will charge only minimum costs just to re-cover their own costs to run the website.

Just use Google to find sites that cover your market. Many of my friends with B&Bs use BABS: refer:http://www.babs.com.au/ but whether your type of accommodation is covered you will have to check.

What do you think? Answer below!

If you’re not looking to invest loads of cash on your advertising than you should avoid pay per click programs and begin focusing on free marketing and advertising methods. One thing you are going to learn is that you can find a number of different ways to advertise you website for free, but a few of them are just a waste of time while various other methods work great.

With regards to article advertising, you’re going to realize that for many years internet marketers have been using this strategy to get all of the targeted traffic they want for free. Actually when people first started using article advertising it had been so powerful that they did not share this technique of generating traffic with various other people. You’re able to get plenty of different information on article advertising and marketing nowadays but most individuals are looking to sell you this information.

Picking out the right keyword phrases is going to be one of the most important parts of your article marketing efforts. When it comes to composing the article you will want to be sure you add the keyword phrase at least one time in every paragraph in the article.

One other thing you are going to have to be sure of is that you are using the keyword phrase you’ve chosen in the title of the article. Also in the first and last sentence of the article you will want to be sure you have included the keyword phrase you have chosen. Make certain you additionally develop a resource box that you’ll end up adding at the end of the article.

In order to get the most traffic you are able to, you’re going to want to submit your articles every where you can, all over the net. You can utilize article directory sites, post the article on forums that are associated with your article and you can even find individuals that will let you post your articles to their blogs.

Now for the most significant part, once you have your article posted every where you are going to want to make a list of the URLs where your article is posted so you can ping the URLs There is software that can help you to ping all the URLs, of course this can be accomplished manually if you want to. When you ping the URLs you’ll find that not only will the various search engines have the ability to find your articles faster but they will in addition be counting the backlinks in each article that are pointing back to your website.
