Website Promotion Secret Revealed

Website Promotion Secret Revealed
Written by Craig Warren

You’ve finished building your website. Now there’s all
that invaluable traffic, just waiting to beat a path to
your site. You’ve dotted all your i’s, crossed all your
t’s and followed the standard to get the word out. You
wear a path out in your carpet pacing back and forth, In
between your pacing you check your server logs, hoping
for a sudden increase in visitors. The reality is, unless
your corporate America with a huge advertising budget,
the days of staggering increases in traffic are way down
the road. Isn’t there something I can be doing while I
wait for the search engine traffic to come?

As a matter of fact there is. Yet this particular form
of Free website promotion doesn’t make the headlines and
requires no software to install, no backdoor tricks into
the search engines and it’s totally free. What is it?

Now, Before I reveal this technique, I want you to
promise you won’t go near the delete button and you’ll
give me a chance to lay this thing out to you. Promise?
O.K. The Technique is “Posting to Forums.” In the first
couple days of “Going Live,” you can hope to attract a
couple of hundred visitors, at the least. This will be
small in comparison to the knowledge you’ll attain, by
allowing the members of these forums to critique your
site. You’ll then be able to make whatever changes
necessary before the search engines crawl your site.
Having your site critiqued by experienced marketers,
For Free, well, Let’s just say, You Can’t Beat The
Price.

If you’ve never visited or posted in a forum. Don’t be
intimidated. These are people no different from you and
I. Merely a group of like-minded individuals seeking to
get answers to their questions or providing answers to
questions asked. Usually on a specific topic or topics.

Side Note: Before you post make sure you read the rules
for posting. Read some of the posts being made. Stay on
topic, You’ll get the hang of it in no time.

Once you get the hang of it you’ll want to make sure you
don’t go announcing your new site to every other forum
you come across. This is viewed as Board Spamming and is
definitely a No No. There are boards that will accept
this sort of post but on a whole you’ll have to remain
on topic and wait for the opportunity to legitimately
slide your announcement in. Sometimes outright and others
in your signature.

Finding forums to fit your needs is easy. Just type
forums into your favorite search box, you can then refine
your search from there. Check to see if the list of sites
meets your needs and go from there.

As a newcomer you’ll want to keep your initial posts
simple. Remember to mind your manners. Be polite and
friendly and always maintain the presence of the
Business Professional that you are. When the time is
right, simply ask them to look at your site. You’ll
receive a pretty good cross-section of positive and
critical comments. Don’t go getting your shorts all in a
knot because someone has posted, what appears to you to
be, a negative comment. Keep in mind that you’ve enlisted
them to critique your site. Be prepared for all the
comments. On a whole, the folks in these forums want to
help. However, from time to time you may run into those
that seem to have nothing good to say about anything or
anybody. Take all comments “Buffet Style.” Take what you
want and leave the rest.

Initially you may want to go look at one or two other
members sites and supply some feedback before asking to
have yours looked at. This will give you valuable
insight. What you may find wrong with someone elses site,
you can apply it to your own and make the necessary
changes. When looking for a site to be looked at, look
for the post who has little or no responses to it. By
responding to their post they’re likely to express their
gratitude by visiting your site when you ask in your
post. This technique may seem a bit sly but nonetheless
effective. Just don’t get in the habit of operating in
this manner.

You will not get a ton of traffic from forums but you
will have engaged in an effective form of site promotion
and all forms of site promotion need to be entered into
the mix. As has been said by someone other than myself,
“You don’t need to get it right, You just need to get it
going.” By applying the above you will have “Indeed Got
It Going!”

Forums are a great place to make new friends and interact
with those that are trying to accomplish pretty much the
same things we are. So keep things rolling right along by
“Posting to Forums!”
