Find Free Advertising Opportunities
(Page 1 of 3 )
After youíve manipulated the keywords, created great content and designed pages that are easy to navigate and pleasing to the eye, you have a lot of options for promoting your Web siteÖand every single one of them centers around advertising strategies. But no one has a bottomless budget for spreading the word about their pages, and some sites have almost no advertising budget at all. Wouldnít you like to know how to find free advertising opportunities instead?
There are many popular free programs out there for which you can sign up and use, without paying one red cent to get started. Programs like Google AdSense will help you create ads and perhaps even boost your traffic, and you can start using it for free -- but there is a catch.
When Pay-Per-Click programs like Google AdSense are successful, when visitors actually click on those ads and follow the link to your site, you suddenly owe Google money. Pay-Per-Click is free, you see, until it actually starts doing the trick. Once traffic clicks your links, however, youíll have to pay out for each and every click.
The amount is usually quite small -- a few pennies per click -- but such expenses have a way of accumulating. Itís free to start using many Pay-Per-Click campaigns, itís true, but these programs may not remain free to use.
Is there another option? Is it possible to find thoroughly free advertising opportunities online?
