Where to get Free Traffic and Free (or Near Free) Advertising

Hi, I'm Still Around,

I would like to tell you about a couple of interesting websites that
A traffic bar: It is and add-on to your browser and will show text ads that appear while you surf. You are supposed to get credits for the sites that you visit.

One such is Free Traffic Bar. It is similar to another well known traffic bar, but with a few more bells and whistles. There are more options than I can ever use. There are trainings, tools, downloads, and useful links that I had never heard of before. HitExchangeNews reviewed this program and it got high marks.

It is a since to set up and is free. You earn by surfing the links provided. There are, however, other levels of paid membership which are dirt cheap and that won't bust your budget.

Once again that site is Free Traffic Bar.

Another one that is of interest is the advertising forum. Usually forums have very strict rules about advertising on their boards. Just don't do it! They will go so far as to BAN members that post ads. Unless it is in your signature only. Their goal is to protect the value of their forum. They understand the value of a happy membership.

Forum postings are quite valuable when it comes to spreading the word on you product or opportunity. Search engines also love forums.

I have found one of interest that I have been playing with. It is called
Your Advertising Forum. This is a place where one can place an ad in exchange for reading a previous posters ad.

This forum encourages advertising. This is also:

- Free to join.
- Free upgrade to Gold by referring others.
- With SEO optimized pages and URLS.
- Offering 50% - 75% commission on referred upgrades.

For me this was a no-brainer. It's free to join and the site has thousands of visitors every day.

If you're looking to increase your traffic and your profits, you should visit:
Your Advertising Forum


I do like free things.

Unspoken, But Crucial To Your Online Success

Hey Guys,

In the beginning there was the marketer. There are certain truths you come to understand the more time you spend making money online – or trying to.

Witness the evolution of marketing online. Whether you are new to the net game or an experienced pro, there is one thing you will have in common if you are moving towards entrepreneurial success.

As you read this article you will realize what you have in common with all the other million dollar earners online, and what you’re missing that can take you from where you are to where you want to be.

So let’s get started shall we?

I will begin with a bullet point list and short explanation of the marketing necessities you want to have:

For starters, most established markets will already be using this by default:

- A Domain: something specific to what you want to promote like (ex.www.mysite.com)

- Hosting: a place to put your site, if you’re planning on making money – find a paid solution so you look like a credible business and you cut back on high traffic crashes.

- A website: your image your presence and your marketing message, don’t get pulled into the trap I see everywhere of trying to put too many choices on your website. Maximize on the effectiveness by only giving one purpose to a page. For example if you want to build a list - focus all your efforts and copy on that singular focus, if you want your site to sell a product, then only put that focus on your site. You’ll also need a good editing program, and an ftp software to get this up and moving.

- A merchant account: If you have something to sell, people will need a way to pay you. There are a ton of great providers out there, but there are a specific few that give your visitors the security to pull out a credit card with assurance.

- An Autoresponder: This is a real necessity if you want a business and not just a hobby. When you have a family to support this is a real no brainer. This is your email follow up service. You get a name added to your list and this is where they go. You will use this to stay in touch and build relationships with your customers and soon-to-be customers.

- A helpdesk: in the beginning when your business and sales are small you can handle all the little questions and emails yourself. One of the things that will keep a small business is small is thinking “I can do that myself” if you want to truly grow; you need to share the workload (petty tasks) and focus on what you truly want to do creatively for your business.

- Membership Site software: once you’re addicted to the internet marketing lifestyle, you will realize this oh-so-simple fact, it’s great to make a sale, but it’s even better to make a sale once and get paid for it every month. Continuity is king.

- Teleconferencing software: If you want an easy way to create and crank out high ticket products, audios and a transcript is an easy to make, high-value product.

Of course everything we’ve touched on so far only scratches the surface, but these are the necessities that not only get you started but will make you above average. Keep your eyes peeled for more articles that will take you from beginner to winner.

We’ll cover resources that will help you stay organized and expand your business to make you truly prosperous such as:

-PDF creators and converters
- Mind mapping software
- Site tools to make your business a set and forget it – money magnet
- Internet video and audio creating software
- And the how-to’s of outsourcing

Keep learning, and most important: be persistent – it will be a quality you share with the biggest money makers online today…
