by Shahnaz Rauf
Okay so you've got the best website in the world. You
have the deadliest sales letter, your USP (Ultimate
Selling Proposition) is great, your inventory is
ready, you have used all the right psychological
triggers and everything is perfect. Okay... but where
are the customers, what next?
1. Go and submit your site to the search engines you
may use the services at http://www.worldsubmitter.com.
Keep repeating every six to eight weeks.
2. Announce your site using a press release. Here are
some free services:

have to register first.
- For announcements relating to new ebook or
epublishing use http://ebookbroadcast.com/submit.shtml
3. Write a 300-600 word article describing the needs
and benefits of your products (Don't make this sound
like an ad - say if you are selling beauty products
your article may be about skin care tips etc.) Put
your resource box at the end of the article, you may
include some comment about your product line and
post it for free publication here:

4. Set up an affiliate program whereby you pay a
percentage of each sale to the reseller. If you
don't want to set up your own affiliate tracking
software, you may use the excellent services of
If you are able to offer a good percentage share
(say 50% or more) you will be able to attract some
of the top affiliates. Advertise for affiliates
rather then actual sales of your products.
5. Go to the following ezine article directories,
search out ezines relevant to your product line,
subscribe to them, get their ad rates and do a
targeted ezine blast. While you are corresponding
with ezine owners about your paid ad placements, you
may also invite them to join your affiliate program.
6.Write a small informational booklet giving useful
information relevant to your product; benefits of
using your products, why your products are the best,
any special bonuses/discounts to the users etc.
- Use this as your ebusiness card - anyone coming to
your website can pick it up absolutely free without
having to sign up to your mailing list.
- Encourage your visitors to distribute this booklet
in any way they like.
- Put this booklet up on http://www.ebay.com for
auction - yes you may start as low as possible... and
put a link up to your website - this way you can
redirect highly targeted traffic from ebay to
7. Start a free auto-responder series course of
interest to your customers - say if you are selling
kitchenware, you may start a course titled "How To
be the best chef in the world in 7 days or less" -
here you may describe different cooking procedures/
recipes using specific appliances you stock in your
inventory. At the end of each lesson you may offer
a special time sensitive discount for the particular
product you are promoting... And advertise this
8. Go to http://www.google.com and check out their
adwords program - type in any keyword relevant to
your product/website and search, besides the regular
search results, on the top right hand corner of the
page a few ads come up. You can get your ad up there
for your most relevant keywords.
