Hello everyone, this is Clark and welcome to BecomeWealthyWithMe.com. If you want to learn how to promote products online for free, you’re at the right place. Let me share what I know with you below.
On this page I’m going to be focusing on just the promotion aspect of it – how to let more people know about your product over the Internet. If you have your own product, you’ll have to arrange a way to transfer your products to the buyers’ hands. If you currently don’t have a product to promote, that’s fine, because there are more than 100,000 affiliate programs that you can join, and I’ll explain more about this below.
Start by Building a Website
Don’t worry that this is going to be something technical or expensive. For instance, at Wealthy Affiliate, you can build a website in less than a minute by clicking a few buttons. And if you register for their free starter membership, you can build and “host” 2 free websites through their SiteRubix platform. So you see, a lot of technical work can be taken care of for you in this day and age, and you just need to concentrate on promoting your products via your website content.
It is possible to promote products on the Internet without a website, such as through Facebook groups, and forums, but a website is where you can build brand and trust with your potential buyers.
If you want to reach a large number of people online, having your own website is a GREAT plus. Publishing high-quality content puts you in good standing with Google and other search engines, which will then get you a lot of website visitors (see below). So, yeah, having a website will greatly enhance your likelihood of success.
Publish High-Quality Content Frequently
Getting lots of people to visit your website is going to be the key factor as to whether you succeed in your promotion efforts or not. No website visitors (also called traffic) = No sales = No money. There are a few ways to get traffic, but when starting out I recommend getting free traffic.
With the technical website aspects taken care of for you, here is where your work really begins. To get lots of free traffic, publish relevant, engaging, helpful and informative content that can help your website visitors with their problems. When a person types in a “search term” into Google or some other search engine, the most relevant and helpful content will show up on their page 1 results.
Publishing content frequently is also important to getting lots of free traffic. Publishing one post (content) a day is ideal, at least at the initial stage, but if that’s not possible 2-3 posts per week is fine.
Promoting Other People’s Products
As mentioned above, if you currently don’t have a product to promote, there are more than 100,000 affiliate programs that you can join. Almost every product you can imagine has an affiliate program.
What you’ll be doing is affiliate marketing, where you (affiliate) promote products online for companies (merchants). This is done through affiliate programs.
All you need to do is sign up (free) for the affiliate programs whose products you wish to promote. To find an affiliate program, just type in product + affiliate program, for example exercise equipment + affiliate program, into Google.
Next, send your traffic to the merchant’s website by having them click on your affiliate link. An affiliate link is a URL, such as http://merchant.com/yourid, that contains your ID under a particular affiliate program product. If they buy through your link, you earn commissions.
