Website Promotion



Learning how to start home business website promotion correctly can save you an incredible amount of time. Entrepreneurs often start promoting their home business website to everyone they can find, but this can hurt your business launch. Planning exactly how to promote your home business website in the best interest of your visitors / customers, and your business, will be an essential part of a good foundation when starting a home business online.


There are many ways to promote your online business website, and you will have to figure out what ways will work to compliment your business. One of the best free ways to promote your website is to get quality links from sites that are relative to your website. It will greatly benefit you to reach out to websites to see if it will be in the interest of them, or you, to add a link to their website. It may also be in the interest of both parties for you to link to them as well. There are many online opportunities like this that create scenarios where both businesses will benefit.


When you are planning how to start home business website promotion, please keep in mind that many websites will not want to link to you simply due to there own interest. They may feel as though your information, service, or products do not fit their specific theme. If [and when] this happens, please do not take it personal or get discouraged. You must find a way to promote your business website, but you can also use road-blocks as opportunities to reevaluate your website promotion plan.


Many entrepreneurs will put too many ads and affiliate links on their websites too soon. Established websites that rely on providing their visitors with quality information, absolutely cannot stand websites with a lot of ads. If you submit your websites to quality directories like DMOZ, they may not list you if you have too many ads and / or affiliate links. Even paid services like AdWords and Stumble Ads will probably not allow you to advertise with them if there are too many ads on your website... and you are paying them!


So when you are planning how to start home business website promotion, how do you submit your website to these sites if you do have a lot of ads on your website? You can adjust your website and remove most of the ads. Your ultimate goal is to start getting a lot of your own free traffic. So you can remove the ads for now until you have enough people coming directly to your website. Then you can stop using these website promoting services, and put your ads back on your website. Be very careful if you plan to take your ads down and resubmit your website. If you resubmit your website too many times, many of these places will cancel your account. Google AdWords is notorious for doing this.


If you feel the ads / affiliate links on your website are relative and beneficial to your visitors / customers, then you can [and may need to] find others ways to promote your site. Just because an online company doesn’t want you to advertise with them doesn’t mean you have to use their services. Many websites will have ads / links on their websites that are perfectly suitable for their visitors / customers. But your goal when starting a home business online is to get your own quality traffic, and it may benefit you to consider making short term sacrifices to your website to benefit you in the long run.


Please be very careful when planning how to start home business website promotion. When you are promoting your website on other sites, be sure to read all of their policies related to site submission. Understand what they are looking for and adjust you website as needed. And if you [or they] feel as though your site is not appropriate to advertise with them, or link from them, find sites that will. When planning how to start home business website promotion, please remember that you can find unconventional ways to promote your site. By first looking out for the interest of your customers / visitors, you will give them incentive to help promote your website because they know your business is putting them first.
