    To be quite honest, I've never spent money on advertising a new site but I'll leave you with an important thing to consider.

    You asked (more or less) if to spend/invest in ads "until your website becomes popular".

    Here's the thing; do you know how you're going to retain those visitors you get from your ad budget?

    Because if you can't keep those visitors coming back to your site, you'll be wasting money... like pouring water into a bucket with a huge hole.

    Once you have that figured out, then you can focus on making your website "popular".

    Getting visitors to come back to your site can be achieved by building an email list from your traffic, and giving them good content (or anything else) that helps them.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    danieldesai is right IMO. You can make some small budget tests to determine the rates of visitors coming back and such.
    And if it works out, you can throw more money on it gradually. But its a steady process, you dont just throw X money on it and the site is popular or so :-)

    About the length of a piece of string.

    Folks, until you ask clearer questions, you might as well go to the movies instead of starting threads here.

    What does popular mean? 1,000 visitors a month? 5,000? 25,000?

    What niche is your blog/website in? Relationships, health and money advertising is a lot more expensive than, say, gardening advertising.

    Etc.

    Hi Imi,

    Their is no limit of amount. And it also depends upon in which niche, you are going to work-on. But as per my experience
    I will suggest you 500-1000$ per month is good amount for PPC Advertising and 300-500$ per month is good amount for
    Facebook advertising.

    And parallely start doing SEO and other free stuffs.


    Thanks,
    Abhishek

    I normally spend as much as it takes depending on how bad I want to make it work. You can start with small ad spends and test.....test......test....until you find some winning campaigns. However, whether or not your site becomes "popular" is dependent upon many other factors besides how much you spend on traffic.

      You can get away with less than $100. Or free for that matter.

      Of course the more disposable income you have to invest in this, the faster it will be for you to reach some level of success

    It depends on how much money i have to throw at it LOL. As far as "popular" is concerned, the only popular that you should base your decisions on are the number of customers that you get everyday. And how much of these customers buy from you over and over again. This is a quick and great way to quick lower and eventually diminish your frontend (or initial) costs of advertising (ex: breaking even) - and also advertising in the future.

    What you should aim for is to create as much of a buzz as possible, and unless you have an army of affiliates promoting for you, then its up to you. Do you offer a great product or service? Do you REALLY believe in your site? If you do, then pony up as much dough as possible and get your link circulating out there.

    When I launch a new brand (which includes a website and social media presence), I generally start with a budget of $100-$300 to run a facebook like campaign. Depending on the niche and targeting, I can often grow my Facebook fan base from anywhere between several hundred fans to several thousand fans without needing to expand my budget.

    You'd be amazed at how much website traffic you can drive with just a few thousand (or even hundred) real Facebook fans and QUALITY content.

    Start there.

    I wouldn't waste my money on Adwords or any PPC. I have a website on American motorcycles and I don't have much trouble getting traffic. Youtube is free anyway. Promote there. I think you'll find Adwords very disappointing for branding a site. Unless you have something very special about your site.
