Advertising your Website

Share the love & make a difference.

I know I go on and on … and on about ways to get web traffic without advertising, but I do receive questions like this one below:

Hi Nicole!

Thank you so much for all the great free information in your WebTrafficBasics.com course. However, I noticed that you don't give any tips for advertising in it. What's up?

I'd like to advertise my site, but would like your advice so I don't waste money.

Hey Erin,

You caught me. I'm not a big advertiser myself, so I don't always give tips on the obvious — which you called me on.

There are some obvious things to watch for when choosing advertising.

Is the advertising targeted? — For instance, you wouldn't advertise make-up on a Bait and Tackle site. 😉

Is the site getting traffic? — You can ask to see the stats from the web owner if they are asking for a large investment or check into alexa.com (It's not a true indication of how much traffic the site is getting, but it'll at least allow you to compare a few sites overall.)

From there, you need to decide if it's going to help your own Search Engine traffic. For me, I do buy links on some sites because I own my own website. However, if I had a Direct Sales replicator site, it may not make sense for me to spend money on a lifetime link. It really depends on your goals.

Also, do you plan to be in this particular business for a long time? If so, then definitely buy some advertising — especially lifetime links. However, if you switch businesses as often as some people switch their socks, then buying a lifetime link may not be a wise investment for you.

That being said, here are some places I recommend for advertising:

Click here for HBWM

Click here for Direct Sales Ads

Click here for USA WAHM

Have a look at them and see if they are what you're looking for. I also am reopening my advertising at ShowMomtheMoney. Although it says “Sold Out” you can purchase it. Just mention that you read it on my blog.

Here's the page — > Business Opportunities (Direct Sales) Advertising

I hope that helps, Erin!

    Your point is well taken about whether or not you plan to stay in the particular business that you are thinking about advertising. I have changed businesses a few less times than socks but that comment was way too close for comfort!

    Karen,
    It wasn’t meant to be harsh. Most of us have travelled a long road before deciding what we want to be when we grow up. I know I have!
