tips of handing out money for advertising space pls?

5 replies
When starting out in the online world and trying to bring in traffic to your website, would you just use PPC and go on free online directories to start or would you sign up to £50 a year links on websites across the UK relevant to your business?

How long would you give the PPC and online directories before handing money out for advertising space or would you not do that?

thank you

    probably start with your free known methods, use social media as a start , face book, twitter, forums, maybe create a blog or interact with other blogs, look at guest blogging as another good alternative and read up here about using article syndication as another method.

    You then have free / paid directories ? most look crap but you may find some good ones.

    With the paid stuff you would use a budget then it is more a trail and error to see what works for you and returns a profit / and or value for money, probably take it slow and find your feet then speed things up.

    I doubt handing over a years worth of dollars out of the gate is a good call as it would probably be better to test on a smaller scale before jumping in with both feed and parting with your $

    I will always work first with PPC because it brings results. With free advertising like back links, you just don't know how fast your traffic will come or if any.

    I would never rely on the search engines to get me the majority of my traffic. It would be total online marketing suicide.

    This is a business and you will need to spend money.
