Get More Website Traffic Even on a Budget


One of the first considerations when starting an online business is how to best drive traffic to your website.  Most new website owners believe that you need a large marketing budget in order to get more visitors to your site.  The reality is that getting traffic to your online business doesn't mean spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on advertising. In fact, a small business with a small advertising budget can be just as easy to find as a well funded business.
Devoting time to ensuring the success of your online business, coupled with some cost effective, powerful tools can help increase traffic to your website, even when you are on a budget.  Here are just some of the tools available to you:
1. Free materials - You might be wondering how free material can help drive traffic to your website. Consider this: if you offer well written reports or articles, you can add your website's URL to each one of them. This is a very cost effective manner of getting free publicity. Requesting visitors to register their email address to download a report or an article also means that you can build an email list for future use to attract people back to your website.  This tip will ensure you have long lasting website traffic.
2.Create a Blog - Consider the effectiveness of a blog.  A blog is one of the easiest ways to create new traffic. By their very nature, blogs are full of unique content.  Use a blog to promote your product or services, post articles or answer questions or inquiries about your products or services and in the process, you'll find that your website is ranked higher in search engines because it's being indexed.  Remember, search engines help drive traffic.
3. Newsletter - Helpful hints and tips, recommendations, brief articles can all be used for a newsletter.  Include links to your website in your newsletter and offer it on a regular basis. This will help drive traffic to your website. Building your readership is easy by offering a "refer-a-friend" link in each newsletter.
4. Forums - Offer your expertise about your product or service by staring your own forum that is specifically about what you have to offer.  Not only does this help to establish you as an authority, but you'll drive traffic to your website because you can include your website's URL in your signature which is seen by everyone who reads the forum. 
5. Link exchanges - Research your websites for high popularity rank (PR) that are relevant to your website. Once you do this offer a reciprocal link on your website or blog in exchange your own link being placed on this site.  If you find websites that are popular with the search engines, you'll drive additional traffic to your website. If you are new to this I suggest you research it completely before using it.  Many search engines frown on some link exchanging techniques so be careful what you use.
Preparing to market and promote your online business requires a lot of work. However, using these easy to use, cost effective tools means that you don't have to spend thousands of dollars in marketing to get traffic to your website.  Sales are driven by traffic and profits are driven by sales. The right marketing tools are all you need to watch your bottom line grow.
