There are many ideas for marketing your business that you'll find all over the Internet, from your friends, and from your colleagues. And many of them will work, too. The problem with asking people like that for help with your marketing ideas is that they're going to be biased based on what was good for THEM, not what will be good for you.
In this article, I'm going to show you 3 easy to implement ideas for marketing your business. These will work for both online and offline businesses. The best part about these ideas for marketing your business is that not only will they get people looking at your website, they'll also bring targeted visitors. After all, I'd much rather have 10 targeted visitors than 100 visitors who aren't targeted!
With that said, let's get right into it.
1) Article Marketing - As you can see right now, you are reading an article from me. It's obvious that you're interested because you're still reading. The best part about article marketing is that not only does it give you more credibility, it can also be done very easily and the visitors you get are extremely qualified.
If you spend just one hour, or even 30 minutes, per day writing articles... you'll eventually develop a very constant flow of new visitors to your site. And those visitors are some of the most highly targeted visitors you can ever find!
2) Integration Marketing - One very little known idea for marketing your business is something I like to call integration marketing. This simply means that you're integrating with somebody elses business to get in front of the other person's readers. Why is it so effective?
Because if they have a great relationship with that other person, they're going to instantly trust any recommendation that person gives. It's like you telling your friends about a great movie! There are many ways to do this... one of the simplest ways is to give away a valuable piece of content to other people's products when they sell them.
3) Guest Blog Posts - The last great idea we'll cover today is writing guest blog posts for people in your industry who aren't direct competitors. This is a very, very easy way to get quick traffic that's highly targeted since they're already reading a blog post by someone in your industry. Plus, you get the transferred credibility of the other person.
Another great aspect of this is that it results not only in big spikes of traffic when the article goes live, but also trickles of traffic if that blog post starts ranking for certain keywords in the search engines. Plus, if you write good articles and can get a regular column, you can become an established leader in your field very quickly!
As you can see, these are only 3 great ideas for marketing your business. While that might not seem like a lot, most of the time it's better to focus on just three ideas to market your business instead of trying to do 20 different activities at once. I hope these ideas for marketing your business have helped you, and I hope you'll use them! "Enjoy Your Coffee"
