Q&A: Is there a way to do free advertising online?

by tyankee7 on March 16, 2012

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.

Marketing and advertising are huge parts of online business. Unlike a brick-and-mortar establishment where you get customers walking in off the street, nearly everyone who finds your website has to be directed there in some way, whether from your search engine ranking, pay-per-click advertising, a banner ad, or word of mouth.

Here are some oft-neglected ways to promote your online business.

1. Free Classifieds

There are a ton of online classified ads where you can advertise your business and products/services for free. Craigslist is one of the biggest and most widespread.

2. Newspaper Coverage

Call your local newspaper and ask if they would like to do a business or human interest piece on your online business. If you are running some kind of charitable event or interesting promotion, they will be more likely to find you newsworthy.

3. Car Decals and T-Shirts

Your business may operate online, but you can advertise in the real world. Consider putting a sign in your car window or handing out t-shirts advertising your website address.

4. Trade Advertising

Find a non-competing complimentary business and ask if they would like to trade banner ads. For instance, if you are running a teddy bear website, trade banners with a china doll website. If you are operating a kitchenware business, find someone who sells home decor.

5. Use Your Networks

Starbucks once ran a campaign where they offered a free iced cappuccino to employees and their family members. They had to shut the offer down when the emailed coupons spread like wildfire all over the country. Try sending a coupon or special offer to friends and family, and ask them to pass it along to everyone they know. You’d be amazed how wide your network can spread, and how much traffic this could bring to your business if the offer is desirable or interesting enough.

Hope this helps!

Free ads-
http://www.bidvertiser.com is giving 20$ of free ads when you sign up. Just visit their site.

free ads alone would be insufficient though. I suggest you get a brochure or a catalog. At least an e-brochure so you can send it through email to any one who is interested in your product. Build a good image and you’ll get sales. A website would be even better.

http://www.hugepotentialproducts.co.cc – they could help you do a good brochure and website for a fair rate.

Hope this helps.

best free advertising online is through social networks!!! there you can find the largest audience, you can target them better and faster…
Also, if you have a website, you can gain traffic from posts on social platforms, therefore increase sales and optimise your website for search engines…

Also, find relevant webdirectories for your website and discussion forums to promote your product.
