How to Advertise Your Business for Free

One of our community members, Luke F was asking where he can advertise his new business venture. Luke is selling tablets but wants to spend as little money as possible in advertising, if not for free. This is something many online sellers ask and can relate to. I hope this video provide some ideas on advertising your business for free.

To summarise, here are some key points that were discussed on the video on how to advertise your business:

1. Before advertising your business, you need to build your business first on a solid and reliable foundation. To do this, you need to research your niche, find the demand, find the right products, look for a reliable and safe supplier and get some good references.

2. Having your own website - this is your central hub for all your online marketing efforts.

3. Social Media - is an excellent source of traffic and general visibility if used in the right way.

4. Blog commenting - is a good marketing tool for your business and very useful for SEO and backlinking.

5. Video Marketing - can generate very good levels of traffic and exposure for your business and a great way to showcase your products.

I am fond of tweeting and that's my main way of advertising my business online. So far, it works although I need to be careful not to be very spammy.

    Hi Meryl,

    It can be a fine line between active promotion of your business and coming off spammy but if you can mix in some content only tweets and re-tweets of other peoples stuff then I think you're just fine. It's a great tool for getting traffic to your pages so don't be afraid to make good use of it.

    All the best,
    Andy
