Ten Power-Packed Promotion Strategies
There are many ways to creatively and affordably promote your online business. I have
tried all of the following and they worked very well for me.
Joint Ventures - Participating in joint ventures with fellow publishers can be a very
profitable experience. This could be anything from a group pop under window to
advertising each other's ezines in your welcome letter. I also know a lot of people have
had some results with signature buddies, where you would swap ads, so to speak, in each
other's email sigtag.
Writing Articles - Extremely effective method of building your reputation and your
business. Writing articles is not hard, just stick with what you know and do not think
you have to use big words to impress anyone. People are just looking for understandable
articles with helpful info and useful resources. Write as if you were talking to a friend.

Ad Swaps - Swapping ads, or running another publisher's ad in exchange for him/her running
yours, is a very popular method of promotion. There are hundreds of thousands of ezines on
the net and most of the publishers are willing to swap ads. When writing to a fellow publisher,
be sure to include a link to a sample issue of your ezine. Introduce yourself and let them
know how you know about their ezine. Tell them about your ezine and suggest a possible swap.
There are publishers who will even swap solo ads which is a great opportunity!
Discussion Lists - Participating in discussion groups can get you established as an
expert in your field as well as build your reputation as one who is there when needed.
This can bring you subscribers, customers and clients. Always follow each group's
guidelines for posting and treat everyone with respect and courtesy.
