How to Promote Your Product on the Internet

Aug 17, 2007
You have a fabulous product, you have placed it on your website, and it is ready to sell, however, you find that the sales are not as you had hoped. You are not getting the attention that you deserve or dreamed when you placed the product on your website. Well, in this day in age, because the internet is so vast and filled with people trying to sell their own products, it is simply almost impossible to sell products without promotion. If people do not know the product exists, how can they buy it? It is up to you to put your product in their face and tell them why they simply cannot live without it.

If you have a product and have not started your promotion yet, it is time to start. Not a marketing or promotional expert? That's ok; this article will give you some tips on exactly what you should do to start promoting your product on the internet. Promoting your product is absolutely necessary in order to obtain the sales and profits you desire. Here are some promotion techniques you can use to get started.

Ezines

Ezines are a great place to start. There are thousands of Ezines on the internet just looking for advertisers like you. You can create an appealing and attractive advertisement, and then place it within the Ezine. Before running out and paying to promote your product through an Ezine there are a few things to look for:

1. Find an Ezine publisher with a large audience. Some will publish to a hundred or so, while others will publish to thousands. Keep in mind the larger the publishing audience; the more it will cost you to advertise.

2. Make sure the Ezine is relevant to your product. You will see many references in this article to target audience. This is absolutely important. The Ezine must be relevant to your product and reach your targeted audience. If you are promoting a great video game, you will not want to advertise in an Ezine for health issues. Make sure there is relevance.

3. Stay within your budget. Set a budget for advertisement and promotion, then stick to it. You do not want to go for broke when advertising, because you may have to back out and try a different method of promotion.

Pay Per Click

Pay Per Click advertising is a great method of promotion. You can find this method in many different places. For example Google's Adwords is one of the most popular pay per click programs on the internet. Here's how it works: You bid for certain keywords that describe your site and products or services that you offer. When someone does a search entering those kewords, they are brought to your advertisement listing.

If they click on your listing and are directed to your website, you are charged for the click. This charge is based on what you originally bid for those particular keywords. This is a great way to promote your product to your target audience, as the advertisement will only show when the keywords you have bid on are searched for.

Articles

So much can be said about articles. This happens to be the most popular and effective method of promotion on the internet today. A well-written, interesting, and informative article can go a long way, especially when a link directly to your product or website is provided in the resource box. Articles can be submitted to article directories or even put on your website. If optimized for the right keywords, the search engines will pick them up and again you have appealed to your targeted audience.

Search Engines

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a very important key to product promotion. If you have taken the time and effort to ensure you have the proper keywords in the necessary places, you will be placed high on the search engine rankings, which is a great way to gain the attention of those searching for your keywords.

Press Releases

You have probably heard about press releases or even seen them, these work great. Whenever a company releases a new product, service, or any changes, a press release is written and submitted. There are guides all over the internet that can help you in creating your very own press release about your product or you can hire a writer to create it for you. After the press release is written, you can use services such as PR Web services to submit the press release and they will distribute it across various parts of the internet, which increases the attention your product gets.

By using these methods to promote your product on the internet, you will find that you have increased your visibility, traffic, and ultimately your profits.
