3 Great Ways to Advertise Your Business Online – The Internet continues to expand in usage all over the world, and with it the multiple opportunities to advertise online. Finding the right online exposure and medium can literally catapult your business into the public light and give your business credit where credit is due. Many different ways to advertise online are even less expensive than traditional advertising methods. Here are three great ways to advertise your business online.
1. Get Rated
If your business depends on local customers, you will want to make sure you are being rated highly online. There are numerous directories that will let people rate the business and leave comments about their experience there. One way to get the ball rolling is just to ask people who frequent your business to review it online. With enough people saying nice things about you online, people will notice and take the time to visit. Always make sure that the place that is providing the reviews also links to your website.
2. Direct Your Customers to Your Website
Advertise your website URL and give your visitors a reason to come back again and again. You can offer online coupons to people who can print them from your website. You can feature your specials online and provide special “Web only” promotions.
3. Social Network Your Way to Success
Heard of Twitter or Facebook? You can use social networking to help build a fan base to get the word out about your business. Twitter will allow you 140 characters a tweet, and is often referred to as a “micro blogging” site. This makes it perfect for offering special deals that are time limited and require people to follow you to get them. Facebook offers a special fan page for businesses and even Social Ads (the advertising media on Facebook) for people who want to advertise to particular demographics on Facebook.
