Online marketing is known as the meal of your website. When it is fed with good food, it performs better in search engine ranking as well as attract targeted traffic.
If you have a website, and you are not one of those webmasters with deep pockets to fund your new project then the very first thing that pops in your mind is “How to drive visitors to my website and spend as less as possible or even better, for free”. And if you just perform a search on your preferred search engine to find free marketing tips to promote your website you will find many of such strategies, such as, blog commenting, forum posting, using social bookmarking and social network sites etc.
Use of these free strategies to promote your website online is definitively something you should consider, especially at the early days of your website. One tip that pops up my mind right now is not to start an aggressive internet marketing of your website if you do not have a solid plan on how to continue from there, rather take it slow and learn during that period, this is a mistake that many new webmasters do, gear up them selves at the first two months and then they cool off when they don’t see that magic formula to bring the huge amount of traffic.
Internet marketing takes time and it is not just about bringing traffic, it is about building something stronger and with more value for your site, internet marketing is to build a brand, to show that you are an authority of that subject and that things are the way you say they are.
But back to the question, when can you rely on free internet marketing strategies?
Aside that in the first period you launch the site, you should however put a good use of internet marketing through these free ways during the entire period that you run that business, never be aggressive, but always be there marketing your product, updates of the product or even new tips you are about to share with the others. A consistent work is what is required, but I repeat, never do it too aggressively or when you don’t need (i.e. don’t post on social bookmarking sites something that is not news worthy, do not tweet every single post, especially if you do daily posts).
