Advertising your business
« on: August 14, 2014, 03:31:38 PM »
How are you advertising your business? Do you use Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin? I took a break from building my business and am focusing on my writing, but when I was actively promoting my business I definitely used social media sites.  I also used email marketing, forums and a little bit of paid advertising.

I believe you are definitely on the right track.  The online presence seems strong.  To top it off, I would look into SEO.  Then, the utilization of strategies and tactics will further boost your presence.  For example, run a contest, which will encourage interaction and engagement.  Also, I would look into some offline advertising.  Tools, such as business cards, pamphlets, promotional item, etc., could be useful, as well.

For advertising to be effective, your ads must be placed in places where those who might be interested in buying something from you would see them. The reason social media ads aren't that effective though they might target the right demographics is because people aren't on social media sites to purchase products, services, etc. It's much better to find blogs or forums where prospective customers hang out , contact the owners and get your ad placed on those sites. When your ads are seen by the "right" people, it is believed that conversion rates are much higher.

It does cost a little bit more though.

I used to  share some shortened links and article links on forums as well as on various free bookmarking sites in the web.
I never got enough views to reach minimum payouts from those sites that I had registered so, I stopped using those. Sometimes if I would be selling some stuff, I would display it on my Facebook account.

I post regular contests and entry means that you have to "like" or "share" things on social networking websites. I find that I get a lot of new clients this way, because it allows people to learn about my page who wouldn't have been able to do so otherwise. Social networking is a great way to make new contacts, and I am so glad that we live in an age where we are able to do this without much of a problem.

I am just starting to try promoting through Facebook by joining some groups and putting up links as well as being active in the groups.  I must admit it is not something I am mega confident about or comfortable doing.  I am not a natural on social media  but I keep hearing it is the best way to drive traffic to a forum so I am giving it a go.

The one thing that I didn't see anyone mention yet is article marketing. This is something that's been effective for quite a while and still continues to be effective. Unfortunately, it does take a bit of time to not only write the articles but also for them to start to gain traffic to your site for you. Nevertheless, they're definitely worth doing, even if you only do a few here and there. The more traffic you get from different sources, the better of you're going to be.

Advertising is a tricky business, but you are on the right track like someone previously stated. Have you also tried Pinterest? Make boards, and find yourself some boards to post in. You'll also want to come up with hashtags, these are good on social medias sites. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and pretty much anywhere else you wish to post your business at. You'll want to learn all the useful tricks of CEO and SEO, those will greatly help you. Learn about meta tags as well, google is at the tips of your fingers and you will discover a whole world that will help advertise.

I think you need to consider timing in advertising as well - all other things being equal I would be considering a paid for advertising campaign through ad sense right now but with Christmas coming up and the holiday season it is a time when forums activity dips a bit and the last thing people are looking for is a new forum - I think they would be less likely to click and visit at this time so I will wait till the new year when people are looking around again.

I heavily rely on social media to advertize my business and find potential clients. The world has changed dramatically over the last couple of years and for one to remain relevant,one has definitely got to embrace the current technological trends.

My problem is trying to catch up with current trends as I am still trying to grasp the basics of a couple of years ago lol.

Someone said something to me recently. They said that the basics never change. So, if you learn the basics of SEO and marketing, you'll be in good shape.

When you are advertising your business or website, you should really maximize and make the best out of the internet. Do a lot of internet marketing on various social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. If you can, try YouTube as well. I have heard it's also a good site to advertise your products/business.

I don't have a business and my websites are only for my own muses. I joined other websites that run weekly meme and got traffic from these parties. Sometimes, I share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Google +. Other than these, I don't rely on social media to advertise.

When I owned a brick and mortar business, I would advertise heavily. Especially the first couple of months when I launched the business, I put forward an aggressive marketing and advertising campaign. This definitely helped to solidify the business and it's position in the marketplace.

I've only started recently promoting my app business online, using social media as a promotion tool. Gradually building up my budget for advertisements as I'm launching a new product during the fall.
