How To

50 ways to promote your website

Just stumbled onto this. Merle from WebsiteTrafficPlan wrote a nice guide that lists 50 Ways to Promote Your Website. It’s in PDF format and you’re welcome to download it by clicking on its link. Among the methods she recommends:

  • URL plates/stickers for your cars
  • Business cards
  • How to guides that list your URL
  • Classified ads
  • Press Releases
  • Ezines
  • PPC Advertising
  • and more

Although I know from personal experience that some of these methods don’t really deliver the results you’d expect, as a whole, it’s a good idea to diversity your advertising methods, in order to ensure the widest coverage. Besides, if you manage to get your name everywhere, it can’t hurt your business either. Just be aware of the cost of the methods, and track the conversions if at all possible, so you know if the money’s well spent.
