How do big companies take advantage of free advertising?

by tyankee7 on April 14, 2011

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 : How do big companies take advantage of free advertising?
Please provide a way that big companies use to advertise for free. The way has to be a way that the average internet marketer could also use for free. I mean things like social networking/bookmarking, backlinking, blog posts, etc except what big companies use.

I am asking this question because I am on a search to find the best ways to advertise for free.

Hi Jacob,

Realistically the only way to advertise for free is by self-promotion. You have to spend time writing reviewsfor your product/company/blog and manually linking people to it on other websites until it catches on. e.g. managing a blog on tumblr and linking back to it. Try writing guest articles on other sites that are similar to the business.

Big companies rarely use any free advertising – They spend millions of dollars each year promoting their products for a reason. They can however using social networking effectively for free because a lot of people have already heard about them and will want to follow them. For a small company starting out this is hard to mimic because no-one is going to search to find you if they haven’t heard of your name.
