Advertising online is meant to bring you all types of traffic, to make sales on your website. The products, and items you sell should be included in the descriptions of your site, so there is a clear focus on your business. As a newbie online, you will seek out as many types of free ads, and free links as possible, to stay within your budget, and to get your business name out on the web at the same time. One method of getting your name out there is free advertising in newsletters, campaigns and on other sites.
Therefore, we have free submittals
As you make your way across the Internet, visiting hundreds of pages in search of free advertising you will come across engines that are known as free, to submit your information. You may be submitting information to an engine that in turn is going to submit your link and description to hundreds or thousands of search engines and sites. You will need your domain name, a brief description and often times your contact information is entered in as you list your site with the search engines.
Sure, this is going to get the newbie busy, entering information as you work your way through the free advertising links and submissions, but you also have to be aware of what is going to come next. Next your email is going to be on overload, as those sites you have sent your information to, send you confirmations, this is not a bad thing, just a little more work, remember it is free anyway.
You will also find that as your contact information is spread across many sites, you will also be subject to additional mail, spam, and email letters that are going to offer you more and more things. This is advertising by the free sites you submitting your information to, and it will slow down after a few days. It is important that you use your email, that is not customer service, that you can easily screen, so you are not left with lots of email to screen all the time, when you need to be looking for more important emails, orders and questions about your products.
One thing is sure, the free submissions are not going to hurt anything, and you may find the links are going to boost the traffic to your site. You will however, need to keep in mind that with these types of free submissions you should be providing a separate email that you can check, and sort through, but leaving your customer service email in tact without the added traffic there. You want to be able to focus on customer needs, as they come in without the possibility of losing those questions or comments.
