I am just starting out as an internet marketer. I have found a few ways to promote my products and websites for free, but I haven't had much luck with them. What are some successful (and free) online marketing techniques you have used? Any help with this will be greatly appreciated.
Cute picture. Let's see, for FunAdvice, this is what we're doing:
1) outreach to blogs examples:
This gets you links, write ups, and encourages other people who run blogs to link to you, which in turn gets you some traffic.
2) Potentially viral videos
That video took us 2 hours to produce, and then another 15 minutes to get it up on youtube. So far, we've had 143 views in 3 days, 5 ratings, and 3 comments...of course, we promoted it here, which helped :)
3) Product content - articles, pictures, videos on a topic you like or love
Writing stuff on a topic that you're interested in will give you a bigger audience, as people enjoy reading articles, seeing pictures, etc, from people who are into a certain hobby, activity, or pasttime.
4) Network with other people in your space
For my day job (not funadvice) I frequently keep in touch business owners who provide similar services as myself, exchange information, etc. It's worthwhile because nobody knows everything about a certain subject, and the ideas you can get from people who are into the same stuff as you are invaluable.
Good luck with the blog.
New trick I learned .If you have domains with key words in the urls and point them to your main site the search engines will find them. Example: Monster.com has high position with google, yahoo etc. with the key word jobs but there main text only has the word jobs 3 times. They get ranking because of all the inbound links with the word Jobs in the url.
. My 9 parked pages are getting over 1,000 views per week , but nobodys clicking my advertisers, The site with the least traffic gets the most clicks its strange. I'll put a link on my site if you want send me a fun mail It will go on about 100 pages and 10 sites. In conclusion my sites are like a roadside accident everybody slows down(page impressions) but nobody stops to help(clicks ads). I just started 2 months ago so I think I'm doing ok
I started a new business a month ago I have between 5-10 spots on the first 2 pages of google. Here's my keyword phrase... cheapest place to buy domain names.
Track what I'm doing and copy me. I also use key words in my domain name
Heres an example BEST-PLACE-TO-BUY-DOMAIN-NAMES.COM (USE THE DASHES TO SEPERATE THE WORDS) I have about 20 domains for each business. Don't forward all the the domains to the same link. Forward your domains to different pages on your main site. Also see what your competitors use as key words and copy them hit the cached button to see how google finds them.
Also join blogs and advertise on free sites.
If you need help or have advice for me send me fun mail. Good luck.

Great advice, dude. Thanks.
I'm doing a few of those things, and I have a lot more traffic than I used to, and the online networking has worked a little bit.
That video thing you're talking about sounds pretty cool. I might try that in the near future.
