What are the best methods to market a new website?

43 replies
  • |
I have website (not yet up) that will come out where you can log on and play some games against other players on the web for free. I want to see if the games are good enough to maintain interest, and thus if enough people really are interested in signing up for free, see if there is a market for it for a small cost.

Anyhow, initially, all I want to do is get the word out to see if people want to try it out for free. I don't want to do anything like spamming or things like that, and I do have money to spend on marketing ideas if that is the best way. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance

    Video marketing like YouTube is an effective traffic. Create your video content like video game commentator and promote your video via social media. If you have a lot of Facebook friends or Twitter followers, post your video on your social media pages and then ask your social media contacts to click on the link and give it a thumbs up. And join to forum that related to game topic, make helpful comments and add useful posts. Attached your website link in signature.

      This is pretty common question to almost every newbie with anew website to lock in traffic.this will depend on the type of traffic that you want and therefore the products.That aside,the most sustainable form of traffic is the organic traffic which you can generate through SEO.

      Post a highly optimized article to your website to rank higher in the search engines for the free traffic.

      Make comments on blog posts and internet forums like this.people seeking solutions will reach out to your web link and to enjoy the free traffic from the search engines through the forums.

      You may allow guest blogging into your website as a means to generate unique content.

      Make your website blog interactive.

      Thank you.

    Social media is the best place to promote this kind of website.When people signup for free make sure to get a like or share of your website in social media.You can force them to do that if you like.(Ex - Can't access a particular game without a like or share).
    Also you can run a game contest. Give some prize away to the best gamer.That will kick start your popularity.

    Drive traffic is to promote your website. Way1, SEO is the key point which needs you to optimize the keywords. Way 2, link exchange. You can look for some links which are related to your business. Way 3, put ads. PPC is the good way. You only need to pay for the valid ad click. For desktopad dot com as example, your banner and pop up ads, it is showing your brand, and if there is one click, you get traffic.

    One of the members commented below that you can utilize Youtube as a traffic source. I certianly agree with that statement as YT is a major traffic source for gamers. FB is another good option where in you could create a fan page for the product you are planning to target. Paid traffic is another good option but only and if you have the budget but beware you won't be in profit at the start as it all comes down to testing.

      I would work out what your keywords are. You should know them and get writing to drive traffic back to your website, publish articles where you can and, do guest blogging and leave relevant comments on peoples site, also find a forum that is relevant to your website that is where your clients hang out and start off posting relevant stuff to help people before promoting your website to help these people as that should be your first step. Also youtube is a another quck way to drive traffic back to your website. Good luck

    Promote Your Site in Online Forums and Discussion Lists — “old school” social media. The Internet offers thousands of very targeted email based discussion lists, online forums, and groups made up of people with very specialized interests. But be sure to include your URL in any display or classified ads you purchase in trade journals, newspapers, yellow pages, etc.

    If you decide to give PPC a try, I would suggest to set up a campaign with Bing, I had clicks for gaming niche as low as $0.01 per click.

    Other PPC networks such as FB, Adwords ,YT Ads would be way more expensive. It all comes down to how much you make per visitor to calculate how much you can spend to acquire new visitors..

    Try to make a Facebook page and use facebook ads, but there's an important thing is that your website must be an attractive website, because what's the thing that will attract the visitor or the user to visit your website, are the games new? are they funny?
    all these questions you must answer them by putting them in a sheet of paper and make it on your laptop to memorize these ideas in your mind.

    I would try Favebook ads. You can really target people that way. Also, try display ads. Gamers are very graphical oriented. And as always measure -->improve. If you aren't measuring, you are wasting.

    Hi, this question often asked by new members. As other members mentioned that Social Media is the best source to generate the traffic for your website, specially if its new, because so many users used social media platfor daily.
    In social media i first recommend Twitter. This is the dominant democracy of the social-sharing economy. Relevancy, personality and brevity are the keys to making your voice heard. Millions of users daily visits Twitter Another platform is Instagram, which invites brands with visual content into their customers’ zone-out time. Create and post content accordingly.
    If you asked result oriented platform, so its Facebook, consider advertising or paying to promote your page on Facebook, but don’t make your brand’s Facebook page itself look like an advertisement. Inspire conversations and shares – and be sure to ask questions.
    Of all social networks, Facebook is best equipped to linearly share responses to a post asking a question or sparking conversation. Answers then appear in friends of your respondents, spreading the conversation.

    Inbound marketing must be the best way! Firstly with organic traffic and then advertising to get paid traffic. I guess, SEO, social media optimization on a regular basis can boost up traffic, but email marketing and PPC would be the best to get targeted traffic and covert them into leads! Before all, you must go through proper conversion optimization on the landing page of your website!
