How to promote your website without spending money
Promoting your website is vital if you want to attract new customers. There are a few easy and fun ways to do that, yet they don't cost any money and only require a few minutes every day to pay off.
Backlinks are the most important things to have for a website to be noticed by the major search engines, and thus have more people find you. These are links to your website from other websites. The easiest way to get them is to visit sites on similar subjects as yours and leave a comment with a link to your site. Make the comment interesting so people who read it want to come to your site to see what you're all about.
Spend time in forums that focus on subjects connected to your site. Don't spam participants with your site though. Instead get in on the conversation, making sure your signature at the bottom of each post includes your website's URL.
Sign up on Twitter and Facebook and make three short posts every day. Say something unique or funny and add a link to your site. You'll be amazed how many people will click on it.
Promoting your site doesn't have to cost anything. Simply choose a few things to do every day and spend 30 minutes doing them. Within a couple of weeks you'll see a huge difference in the number of people arriving on your site. Make sure you have great content to read when they do, and they will keep coming back.
