Low Cost Tactics To Promote Your Online BusinessFor any small online business owners, we are constantly troubled by the question how we can promote our businesses and get more exposure to our businesses without having to spend too much money and budget online? This is not an easy task for most because most of the time, to promote your website as well as promote your business for free would often mean that it takes time, and to speed things up one will usually have to spend money to get more traffic to a website fast.

Nevertheless, there are many ways to promote your website to promote your business online at a low cost. Some of them are paid methods while others are free. Mind you that the paid methods mentioned below will be at the lower cost as well. This is because we know that it is essential for small businesses to be wary of their budgets and spending. One of the keys to success for a small business is to keep the cost low while maximizing the returns. If the returns are low you could potentially be in the negative profit zone if you are not careful with your business budget. Here are some of the places that you can go to promote your business.

Facebook.

Facebook seems to be the center of attention these days. Most of the people online are on Facebook and they seem to be spending a lot of time every day hanging out and socializing in this virtual world. This huge amount of traffic and crowd on Facebook makes it a great place to spread the words about your online business. You will have to be extra careful here though because many other marketers have recognized this rise on Facebook and have tried to exploit Facebook for traffic. Because of this Facebook is now coming out with very strict rules to protect themselves and it’s users from spam and other unethical promotional methods.

The good news is, with these strict rules, you get less spam on the platform. What this means is that you will be able to promote your offers legally and still get the attention that you deserve on Facebook. There are two main ways to promote your product or offer on Facebook and it is the free method or the paid method. With the free method, you can build a fan page or a Facebook group to gather traffic. You will have to rely on viral traffic to increase your exposure to your website. With the paid method, you will utilize the Facebook Ads system where you pay for every click that or impression that you get.

If you know how to use the Facebook Ads properly, you can get the cheapest paid traffic in the industry. However, do your research first before plunging head first into this because if you do it wrong, it can cost you a lot of money advertising on Facebook ads.

LinkedIn.

LinkedIn is another great place for businesses to network and connect with other business owners or workers. This is because LinkedIn is one of the top networking websites for B2B (business to business) types of relationship. Hence, if you are selling a B2B product instead of a B2C (business to consumer) product, then LinkedIn will be one of the best places for you to meet business owners worldwide. All you need to do is create an account and set up your profile. The next thing you can do is keep adding new people to your list of friends like how you would do on Facebook or any other social media sites.
Twitter

Twitter can be a very important tool to get your business name out there gets it recognized. With every tweet you will get a lot of viral traffic to your site and links. With every re-tweets that you get from your own tweets you will get even more traffic and the numbers will just grow exponentially.

With Twitter, it is also possible for you to carefully target your traffic as well but you will need to understand the demographics of your target market and aim first before you shoot.

Forums.

Using forums can also be a great source of traffic to your site. A good and popular forum should provide you with many ways to promote your business for a small fee. Hence, check out the forums within your niche and then try your best to get in contacts with your forum owners. Negotiate for a good price to advertise on their forums if they do not have a fixed price for advertisements.

Questions you should ask before joining an Online Business System.

Everyone wants to be their own boss. It is perfect because you do not have to listen to anyone, and you call the shots. Plus being your own boss means you could potentially earn a lot more money than you could ever imagine by working on a day job. However, prior to internet marketing being your own boss is not something so easily achievable, especially when it comes to a brick and mortar business, it usually requires a lot of starting capital.

Online Business System.Hence with the existence of an online business system, people are now more willing to look into the option of having your own business and being your own boss. Not only could you work on your own or free time. You could even try your hands on an online business as a part timer. The starting capital is very low as well. This explains why the numbers of people who are going into an online business is growing at such a rapid rate.

With that said, there are a lot of online traps as well. You need to be absolutely careful not to fall into those fake or scam systems that are out to grab your money while promising you the world. You should know that not all the online business systems that you come across are legitimate and this article will help you understand the basics of finding a legitimate one.

Question 1: Does the system provide you with all the necessary tools?

More often than not, the promise of an online business is that they tell you all you need to do is to join them, and everything will be taken care of. However, most of the time, this is not the reality of the matter as well. Most online systems will leave you hanging somewhere and does not provide the proper tool, equipment or even the education for you to move on.

Hence whenever you wish to join an online business system, make sure to do your research properly. Ask around and look for real members review. As them if there are sufficient tools available in the system or do you have to purchase or acquire your own tools elsewhere when you take on the business system. If you look carefully enough you will surely find some online business systems that provides all that you need to make it work for you.

Question 2: Will the system work for you?

Here’s the truth and the truth is as good as some online business system might seem to be… it just isn’t cut out for everyone. You must realize that everyone’s goals, mindset, passion and even motivation differs and of course, there are much more other factors at play as well. So one online business system might work for another it might not work out for you.

One way to help you find out if the business system is suitable for you is to make sure that they are doing the right things that pass your ethical beliefs. You should also try to find out what your passions and hobbies are and be sure that this business system which you want to join is closely related to your passions. This is to ensure that you will be able to work hard on your business without getting tired of it, and that you are actually working for your business as a form of pleasure instead of just working for money.

Question 3: Are their support team responsive?

When you are new to making money online you are bound to have a lot of questions. Hence you would want their support team to be ready to help you out in your journey whenever you have a question in mind when you are working to build your business.

One way to test their support team is to actually send them an email before joining up. This way, you can see just how responsive they are. Double check if they have a phone number which you can call them up at any time. This is important so that you can get the best help and attention when you need it.

Question 4: Their online reputation.

One good way to determine the reputation on an online business system is to check how many years have they been in business. Fake or scam systems usually die out very fast. If a lot of people are using the system with success, then that would be an instant indicator that the system might work out for you too.

Search in Google and see if there are people saying bad things about the company. Make sure to compare it with the good reviews that they get as well.

Question 5: Continuous education.

Last but not least find out if the company is willing to provide continuous education during your journey to build your business. Otherwise you will pretty much be alone in a situation if you do not have a strong team to back you up whenever you need them. Learning how to build your business online is a long process, and it will take time for you to learn the basics.

Hence if the company is providing all the training and education (preferably in video format), then you can be sure that you will have the opportunity to learn everything from scratch. Take each step slowly and take actions as you learn. Once you have your business going, be sure to approach the company’s support and ask them for aid to help you grow your business further.

If you are starting to profit, always reinvest your money to grow your business. Never make the mistake of spending all your early profits. It is alright to celebrate but do it moderately. Your business should come first and when you are already wildly successful and have a very comfortable amount of income, what is there to stop you from enjoying your life and taking a vacation or two each year.

Long Tail Keywords Website Ranking

Long Tail Keywords Website Ranking

best business making money wordPress websiteWhen people hear the phrase Search Engine Optimization (or more commonly known as SEO) they immediately picture their website being at the first page and at the number 1 position in the search results.

Yes, it is nice to be number 1, and every website owner strives to have their site to be number 1 for a chosen long tail keywords, but SEO is not a guarantee that your website will reach the number 1 position. Even though it can guarantee a rise in the ranking department, it is still not a surefire method to reach number 1.

If there are SEO firms/companies who claim that they can take your site to number 1, then you have to be even more careful of these people because if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Even if it is true, even if they could indeed push your website straight to number 1, the methods they employ are most probably black-hat methods and if your website gets caught employing these methods, your website will be so severely penalized it won’t even be in the top 100 anymore in the search results.
