My website is in the process of being built which i hope to have finished in around 3 weeks. My questions are ...
1. How can i promote my page without paying for it and without spamming lots of others pages? if possible at all?
2. is it possible to start a list of email addresses for email newsletter before my website is finished ??

    Okay, so there are lots of things that you can do here. For starters paying for traffic is the very best way to really do this, but for the sake of coin I'd say YouTube. I don't know what niche your in but making product related youtube videos and ranking the videos will bring in traffic.

    Now, you can easily create a simple lead collection funnel. So you're building a website already? Hopefully you went with a hosting plan that allows sub-domains. What I do personally is use a sub-domain such as offer.yourdomain.com and install Wordpress. Use something simple like Thrive Content Builder, OP2, or Instabuilder to create a small funnel (squeeze, ty, download).

    Offer up a free report for opt ins on the squeeze page, maybe throw in a one time offer in there (recommended) and start sending traffic to your squeeze page. Be sure to have links fr TOS, Privacy policy etc so you can buy ads to it if you want (read FB/Adwords rules so you don't get banned).

    I would also recommend having a good follow up email sequence in place that will kick off promoting related products to whatever the free thing they opted in for was... IE if they opt in for a report on email marketing send them offers for email marketing programs. Also, monetize your download page.

    Hope that helps.

    Couple of questions to better help you

    When you say you're getting "a very good response" promoting posts with affiliate links on Facebook, do you mean SALES?

    Does the website you are building includes Landing page to build a list of interested parties to your topic/niche? (a MUST!) Does it leads to a Sales Funnel? (a MUST as well!)

    The only best way to promote a website "without paying for it" is to produce high quality unique content. And I mean KILLER content! Content that folks will be compelled to pick and share all over the place. Goo... will highly rank such content, however the overall website MUST provide also HIGH value to visitors.

    Best regards,
    Andre Foisy

      Thanks for the advice. I'm currently genating a good amount of sales from clicks on the links. I am only using facebook page, and fb advertising. Spending around £300 per week on adverts and generating around £650 profit per week. Obviously i am hoping my page audience keeps growing at same rate, to widen audience.
      With regards to website, i am planning on landing page, with a pop up for email newsletter registration to claim offers etc after around 10 seconds. (Please forgive me if i don't use right terminology as very new to this ) Then various pages with weekly / daily offers for different brands of clothing, from different sites, with affiliate links (i am presuming this is what would be called a sales funnel ? ) Any other advice greatly appreciated.

    As long as you can generates many likes, you will get many people see-ing, once a person like your post, his or her friends can see your post. So 1 person like your post, he or she got 500 friends then there are 501 people can possibly see your post.

    Your aim is to get as many likes as possible. Held event like giving out free tools and services for liking your page etc.

    Yes, start email newsletter as soon as possible. This way you capture all the possible future customers and keep converting them into $! This is how you generate passive income.

      Getting likes is only the beginning of engagement. One must keep posting interesting and targeted content (to those who liked), so it appears in the feeds of those who previously liked your posts at first, and then from there they need to click again if they feel compelled enough to do so, to send them wherever you wanted them to go to. Even if one has thousands of likes that does NOT mean they'll keep engaged and click what you want them to click, if they're not compelled AGAIN to do so. Being constant in that route is key...

    1. Paid traffic is going to be your best bet. When you start collecting leads funnel them into a OTO and then email market to them. Work out your EPCs and you'll know how much you can spend on advertising.
    2. You can put an opt-in form on your FB page. Whatever Autoresponder you use will have training videos on how to do it.

    Hi dakota 1976, welcome to the Forum!
    Before you get too involved with List Building and other ways of promoting your site, may I respectfully suggest you engage a mentor? IMHO, all newbies who are a bit unsure of themselves should study with a mentor. I wish I had taken this advice myself when I started, instead of wasting valuable time and lots of money, struggling on my own. I finally realized I wasn't going to get anywhere without a mentor! Now, at last, I'm making progress. Good luck with your site. Keep smiling!

      Thanks for the advice Cherrytom. Without sounding daft, how would i go about getting a mentor? I've sort of muddled through this far on my own, and tried to learn by mistakes, but obviously with a mentor i guess it would be easier and save wasted ad spend.
      ps how do i thank someone on here ???? I've looked and looked but can't seem to find it??
      pps must get opticians appointment sorted :-)

        At the bottom of each messages posted in a thread there should be a Thanks button, it is placed at the far right. My guess is if you don't see that, it might be because you do not have enough posts yet in the forum. Don't ask me why there's such a "rule" lol

        I'm sending you a PM.

    Forums in your niche, guest blogging, blog commenting, SEO, opt-in email marketing, etc.

    Sure.

    When your website and monetization system is finished, then release it to your leads. But in the mean time give them helpful things to get them more interested in you.
