Advertising Your Online Business

Aug 18, 2007
If you are looking to market your online business and need some tips on how to go about it this information should help you discover three of the best ways to go about your online advertising. The first option is pay per click. There are sites you can choose from that offer pay per click advertising. This means whenever someone does a search for items using keywords that are found on your site, your sites link will be showed in the ad space next to the persons search results.

You do not pay to list your advertisement and there are no other hidden costs to this type of advertising. Pay Per Click can also be included on other web sites giving you the most exposure possible with very little out bound cost. Pay per click offers a great way to utilize your money, get more traffic to your site which can help increase sales.

One of the best things about Pay Per Click is that you only pay each time someone clicks on the advertisement that takes them to your site. Be wary of search engines that offer clickers money or incentives to click through their results as you may end up paying for clicks that result nothing for you. Pay per click can also be known as pay per ranking, pay per position or pay per placement and all of these sites offer the same type of service.

Creating a web banner is yet another way to advertise online. A banner is generally a color animated or still advertisement for your site. The banner is clickable and will take people directly to your site. This means that your banner should be on other sites that people frequent in order to see your banner and click on it. There are companies that offer free banners and online advertising but this is not always the best way to go.

You will have to look at the site and determine if this is going to be the right way for you to go. While the advertising may not cost you anything to create your banner and advertise on a site they often require you to allow other banners on your site to advertise for others. You will also likely get half the displays that you generate. So if your site advertises 1000 banners for someone else you will get 500 banner advertising on other sites. This is the average and some may offer more or less then this.

Your third option is to pay for advertising through an online advertising company. This generally offers you more control over how much banner advertising you receive but costs you money up front. The choice is up to you and no matter which way you go you will generate more sales if you advertise online.
