The number one trick to web marketing for your small business obviously is to hire someone that knows what their doing. As we all know being a business owner you're flat out running your business, let alone take on the task of marketing your website.
But if you're at a stage where you just want to learn a little bit more then this article will explain a few insider tricks which will get you some big results.
First of all you should be promoting your website where your name appears, this may be online as well as offline. The more people you get to your site the better. Because the insider trick I'm about to share with you includes people creating viral traffic to your website.
Alright … so now that you're doing everything you can to promote your website you need to install options to your website that enables people to share your content, your offers or your products with their friends on other social networking sites.
Yes that's right. You can install a Facebook share this button on your website or a link that allows people to share your site with their friends on Facebook.
Now just think about this. Let's say on average people viewing your site have about 50 friends on their account. If this person makes use of your share button their network of friends YES all 50 will see the link on their account also. So in essence this one person has just promoted your business to 50 other people by the push of a button.
Now let's say you've got just 10 people who share your link, that would be a total of 500 people that are exposed to your business. Do you see the power of this?
And all it takes is adding a share this on Facebook or tweet about this link or button next to your content on your website!
But we're just assuming that each person has only got 50 friends, what if these people had 100 or 500 which is the amount of friends many people I know have.
This is a simple way to actually distribute your message. And if you're offering good content that is liked by a lot of people expect a rush of traffic to your website and ready to be monetized.
But to top this strategy off you can add numerous social bookmarking sites to do the same thing. The same way you added the Facebook button you can add social bookmark buttons to your site.
Think about it … you have just a few visitors share your content on multiple sites … your content would go viral.
But the key to making this work as mentioned earlier is giving away good content that a lot of people will like and will be willing to share with their friends.
