This is probably the simplest and most effective way of driving
traffic, make that targeted traffic, straight to your site when they want what
you have to offer!! Sounds great? It is, but its not free... Google Adwords and
bidvertiser advertising work on sort of an auction basis where you bid on
keywords or phrases and according to how high your bid is compared to all other
bids, this decides (among other things, like google rankings, etc) where your
ad appears in the search results for any keywords or phrases you've selected.
Its not that expensive and is definitely worthwhile but if
you're broke to start with dont go into debt for Google Adwords, there are
other ways, they just take a little longer.
Similar to social networking and so on, discussions boards and
groups, often found on social networks, are groups of likeminded people
discussing common topics of interest.

topic of making money at home and participate in the discussions, not missing
the opportunity to market any/all of my sites while i'm at it. Likewise if

This can be a little tricky as you're not just trying to get
traffic but you've actually got to advertise something of value or the ad wont

exchange is where you display a small inobtrusive link to a site and in return
they record your site and its description in their visitor accessible database.
Its a great way to get free advertising and traffic especially when you're
Much the same as friends and family above, however, the big
difference, close friends and family (as mentioned above) one can actually call
or see at home tonight for instance, so its harder to get away with saying you
did do something if you didn't. Facebook friends, or any other social network
friends you're not particularly close to in real everyday life, might not be as
inclined to help out as a test subject for your new venture.
The upside to this is that although fewer people are likel...
As obvious as it may seem some might overlook it. Keeping your
contacts list up to date ensures that you always have a ready supply of test
subjects at your fingertips! The better friends you are with each of them, so
to speak, the more inclined they are to do you a favour from time to time and
maybe check out your new site or product offerings... Who knows maybe it even
results in a sale or two? What’s more, if you can keep your offerings in line
