Submitting a Press Release, both online and offline, can earn your website some serious exposure! Is your product or service unique? Do you have an interesting story to tell, or something newsworthy related to your business?

Start Your Own Affiliate Program
Consider a fast-moving, high-sales Affiliate Program for your product! An Affiliate Program puts thousands of people to work for you as your Personal Sales Team - and you don't have to pay them until they make a sale! My personal recommendation would be to list your product at ClickBank - it is by far one of the most popular programs to use, with an exceptionally high success rate. Put them to work for you today & increase your sales dramatically this Holiday Season!

Pop-up Windows
Used correctly, Pop-up windows have proven to dramatically increase newsletter subscribers and/or purchases (great place to post your special offers!). Place the script on the front page of your site, and be sure to use cookies so that the window only opens once per session for someone viewing your site.

Note: If your visitor subscribes, they are then taken to a ‘thank you' page for confirmation - this is a great place to add links to make back-end sales! If you need the pop-up window code, email me and I will send it to you!

Testimonials
Publishing your clients personal testimonials on your website increases your credibility to new clients. When you receive a compliment from a client, ask permission to publish it on your site! Offering them a link in return is a great incentive.

Writing Testimonials can be a Powerful Advertising Technique! Be sure to send your testimonials to vendors when you are pleased with a product or service, and include permission for them to publish it (along with your byline). You can also publish Product Reviews and Testimonials in your own Newsletter or on your website - using your affiliate links!

Search Engine Optimization
Make sure you have Meta Tags embedded in your web pages which include keywords and a website description. Your content also matters! Make sure that the content on your webpage is rich with keywords and relevant information also look at image names and alt tags - these can be used to optimize your site for Search Engine placement as well! Be sure to exchange links with reputable sites that are complimentary to your target market - Getting listed on high traffic sites is a major plus! (Forget FFA and Free Classifieds!). You might also consider Pay Per Click options.

See: www.webservicenetwork.com/payperclick.htm

Create Your Contact Lists
Consider everyone that you know, that you have done business with in the past, or that has requested information from you Send an email out to your contacts, and invite them to view your new website, subscribe to your newsletter, etc. DO NOT continue to send email - it might be considered spam - just a friendly invitation or announcement would be advised.

You might also consider the Follow Up approach. Example:
Hello, we haven't spoke in awhile. How are things going for you these days? etc etc
and end your Follow-Up email with a compelling Signature Line!

Online Auction Sites (eBay)
Listing products on the online auction sites is also a great marketing tactic! While you cannot blatantly promote your website on most auction sites, you can create a Profile (or About Me) page and add that link in your auction description. Also, if you are selling products that you offer on your website, this is a great opportunity to reach a wider market and gain new contacts. Don't Forget your Signature Lines in the correspondence with potential bidders - along with you Follow Up emails to winning bidders!
