      “If you build it, they will come” is not necessarily true on the Web. Putting a website up is one thing, but getting visitors to come to your site is another. The process becomes even more difficult if you have limited resources to market your business.

      Here are some shoestring marketing ideas that can help you get the visitors you need at the least cost possible:

      1. Create the best content you can with the best products you can possibly offer. Your content is your best advertisement – if visitors love your content, then they will go back and spread the word to others.

      2. Make it easy for users to recommend your site. Viral marketing is very important — and easy to tap on the Web. But give your users the tools. Get a Recommend this Site script from websites such as cgiscripts.com and similar directories of scripts. Some even go as far as giving incentives to those who recommend the site to their friends. If only 10 people go to your site, but these 10 people invite 10 more – that’s additional traffic that you get for FREE!

      Recommend Site Scripts (various) http://php.resourceindex.com/Complete_Scripts/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Big Nose Bird Recommend this Site http://bignosebird.com/carchive/birdcast.shtml
      CGI Resource Index http://cgi.resourceindex.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Website_Promotion/Recommend_Site/
      Hostscripts http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Site_Recommendation/index.html

      3. Rank well in the search engines (organic search results, not the pay per click). SEs can be a big source of traffic. The key is to create the best content in your niche. If you have good content, other websites will gladly link to you and offer your site as a resource to their audience. Check the on-page factors and be sure to get linked from authority sites in your topic area.

      If you are going to read only one piece on search engine optimization, I suggest you read Brett Tabke of WebmasterWorld.com’s “Successful Site in 12 Months with Google Alone: 26 steps to 15k a day.” http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum3/2010.htm

      4. Send out press releases. While outfits charge as much as $ 650 per release, there are free press release submission places on the Web. Press releases allow you to (a) attract media attention; (b) get more back links to your website without sending each website an email request; and (c) get more visibility especially if your press release gets in Google News or Yahoo News. My website (see my profile) accepts free press release submission (no strings attached!)

      5. Submit articles. Write articles and submit them to websites accepting author submissions. You get exposure for your business; establishes you as an authority in your field, and allows you to get backlinks for your website. If 50 websites publish your article and it contains a link back to your website, then you easily get 50 links from a single article. The more links you have, the greater your chances for increasing your search engine rankings.

      Here is a comprehensive list of where to submit your articles http://answers.yahoo.com/question/;_ylt=AhzreGmnCUicOoyedqypscUjzKIX?qid=1006022407481

      6. Improve your conversion. Getting visitors is one thing; getting them to buy your products is a whole different story. Read the article “10 Ways to Convert Visitors to Buyers” http://www.powerhomebiz.com/072005/conversion.htm for tips on how to improve your conversion rates.

      7. Post a link to your site for free where it is allowed (always read the Terms of Use). Examples are:

      Craigslist http://www.craigslist.com
      Google Base http://base.google.com
      Classifieds for Free http://www.classifiedsforfree.com/
      Text Link Exchange http://www.txtswap.com/
      Recycler.com http://www.recycler.com/
      Yahoo Classifieds http://classifieds.yahoo.com/

      Since you are low on money, you can make up for that with your effort.

      One of the best methods is to write article srelated to your site and submit those articles to article directories, for instance ezinearticles.com.

      This serves a few purposes, first you can receive visitors directly from the article site when people click on your resource information (make sure you include a link to your site in the resource box). Second, other webmasters will pick up your article and publish the article on your site – that’s another source of visitors to you from your resource box. Third, search engines will see that other sites link back to your site and rank your site higher in the search engine results.

      stay away from free-for-all links pages. if search engines see your link there they will not accept you. links in free-for-all links pages are purged after 90 days.

      ◙◙ Promote Your Site ◙◙

      ◙ You need to submit your site to many search engines. Search engines will not accept your site if it is listed on free-for-all list sites. They will not accept it if it is a newbie site that is about them only. Think of a subject and write about it. It can take 2 weeks to 6 months or more before they list you. Even if they do accept your site you’ll need to check your listing occasionally to make certain it is still listed. If a site gets no traffic or isn’t updated regularly they will delte your listing. If you are a serious webmaster you will need to read about site optimisation at http://www.searchengines.com/ Another great site is http://www.searchenginewatch.com/ Search engine submission tips (lots of info) http://www.searchenginewatch.com/webmasters/

      ◙ You’ll find about 400 search engines here.

      http://dwight.clickthesky.com/search/

      ◙ There are web sites that claim to submit your site to hundreds of search engines at once. The only one I recommend is http://www.dmoz.org/ The other search engines use this directory to supplement their own directories. Youdd it to google here http://www.google.com/addurl/

      ◙ If you have a Geocities home page list it in Geocities Homepage Directory http://pages.yahoo.com/ You’ll find help for that here http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/geo/gmembers/
