Having a site with quality content does not in itself guarantee your success as an online entrepreneur. If you really want to survive and prosper in your online entrepreneur adventure, you need a steady and consistent flow of quality traffic. Traffic that can be monetize either via direct product or service promotion or subtle referral for advertisers.

So, how are you going to tell people that you exist. After-all, if the only regular readers you have are your family members and friends, then you can hardly make any money. You need to develop a plan for promoting your website on a steady and consistent basis. You need to promote constantly and endlessly.

Stand Out Online

There are several methods of promoting your website. The most basic of them is Word Of Mouth. This is highly effective and absolutely free. However, how many people can you tell on one on one about your website? The number cannot run into thousand, yet you need to alert millions of users online that your website exist! So there is need to use other methods as well. I will simply enumerate some of the popular ones, because that is not the focus of this post.

  • Submission to Major Directories and Search Engines
  • Link exchange with relevant websites
  • Traffic Exchanges
  • Ezine and Newsletters
  • Article Submissions to online directories
  • Leaving Comments on blogs
  • Forum Marketing
  • Article Submission
  • Social Networking
  • Pay Per Click Advertising (e.g Google Adword)
  • Classified Advertising
  • SEO and Linking etc.

The list above is not exhaustive, however irrespective of the method you decide to use, there are some fundamental principle you need to keep in mind:

1. You need to be consistent with your website promotion and marketing strategies. You need to keep promoting daily until you sell off the website or relinquish ownership.

2. Use several methods and take note of the result each produce. That will enable you to allocate resources properly on each method, devoting greater attention to those methods that produce the optimal results.

3. Use methods that are simple but captivating. You need to be creative and not stereotyped. The online community is dynamic and changes very fast. Do not be too conservative in your promotional approach.

4. Don’t forget the social networking communities. Build a unique personality in those community that is tied to your person and not the website. That will enable you utilize your popularity for the benefit of any website you wish to promote.

    Consistentcy really is the key. Experimentation is good too, sometimes a “new” idea will take off. I’d also add to make connections with others online to help each other out. It’s also a great way to find great content.

    Good recommendation to the beginners.

  9. I certainly like all that is being discussed here but all i really need per say is a very good and quality website promotion.

    I would appreciate it more if my website could have a very high traffic of 10,000 per month.

      @Odion
      You can easily achieve that with Google Adword. You only need to dish out some cool cash to Google. You can be rest assured they will deliver the traffic 😉

    I beg to disagree on one of the points listed above.
    Link exchange is DEAD! It is in the doldrums of internet marketing. While article submission is helpful, more important is generation of content, promoting others and commenting on other blogs and forums.
    Believe it or not even without major SEO (Search Engine Optimization), good content that contributes to the topic being discussed is often discovered. When it is discovered, the other more popular websites then spread the word for you.
    Having said that, it is important to promote others much more than you promote yourself. The internet is built on trust and I will help anyone that comments here free of charge to jump-start their website promotion. Just ask tony for my contact or visit one of my sites.
    Nice post, Tony.
