Cheap Advertising Blog Article by Charles Fuchs

Cheap MLM Leads
When you are looking for cheap MLM leads, there are a lot of companies out there promising you a large number of leads for a minimal amount of money. However, more leads does not always equal more sales. You need to know how to get the best cheap MLM leads to maximize your sales efforts.

Efficiency is the key to running a good business. Getting a lot of cheap MLM leads that do not lead to any sales is not running your business efficiently. It is wasting your time and your money. You want cheap MLM leads that yield results. By getting the best cheap MLM leads you may not be getting a lot of leads, but you will be getting leads that lead to sales. This means your sales percentages will go up, and so will your profit potential.

So, how do you get cheap MLM leads that lead to actual sales versus frustrating sales calls? You have two basic options. You can go with a lead generating company to sell you cheap MLM leads, or you can get the leads yourself through your website and other advertising. Either method will give you cheap MLM leads, and both methods can yield effective MLM leads. You just have to decide how involved and how much control you want over getting those cheap MLM leads.

No matter whether you get your cheap MLM leads via your website or through a company, you need to realize that a fresh lead is the best lead. You will need to contact those leads within 24 to 48 hours of getting the information to be the most effective. When people say that they are interested in something, they want a prompt response. If you wait too long, minds can change or someone else can come in and steal the deal. “Strike while the iron is hot,” needs to be running through your head.

Also, you will want targeted, new leads. This is where buying cheap MLM leads from a lead generating company can go bad. Do your research into the companies to make sure that the leads you get are for a product or service you are selling. Also, make sure that the cheap MLM leads have not been sold over and over. Otherwise, you are going to be calling a lot of irate people who either have no interest in what you have to offer or they have been “sold” so many times they just slam the phone down in your ear. Now ask yourself if those cheap MLM leads are worth it?

Cheap Advertising Blog Article by pete maughan

Affiliate + Blogs = Money by pete maughan
I've been an affiliate for a long time, trying different ways and many different sites to make money. When I first started there were many things I didn't know and it seemed like I was banging my head against the wall just to make a few dollars... and sometimes just a few cents... but over time I learned a few tips and tricks.
1. One website isn't enough. When I first became an affiliate, I had one website; a site for women that featured recipes, articles, a shopping section, and more. I put affiliate ads on every page, but the shopping section was exclusively affiliate advertising. I spent more than a year submitting this site EVERYWHERE, constantly. I never made more than 20 dollars a month. To profit from affiliate advertising, you need many websites. Do you think having multiple sites is too much to maintain? Once you get them set up and get the hang of it, you will only spend a few hours a day on them, especially if you use BLOGS instead of the standard html sites, as mentioned below in the next tip.
2. BLOG! There are some advantages to having blogs and using them for your affilate advertising. You don't have to know html. Blogging has been made so easy that you just click here, copy and paste there, and you're done. Blogging can be FREE. Many sites such as blogger.com offer you a free blog. Blog articles get picked up VERY quickly at Google and other search engines, especially if you allow people to comment to your posts. If you get a blog, add to it every day, and put your affiliate advertising right into your article. The more blogs you have the better. I have a blog for coupons and savings, one for personal articles, one for news articles, one for just jewelry, one for coupons, one with a punk theme, one for poker, and one for internet chat logs, and I'm always trying to think of new blog ideas. They all link to each other and they all have affiliate advertising on them. In fact, my friends and I are working on building a blog empire!
3. One affiliate company isn't enough. In the beginning I was only signed up at linkshare.com. Sure, I was an affiliate at 100s of online stores through LinkShare, but I didn't realize how much I was limiting myself. You need to also sign up at Commission Junction (cj.com) and ShareaSale.com, and maybe one or two more. Many merchants only use one affiliate site. For instance, if you want to be a Macy's affiliate you'll need to be a member of Linkshare, but if you want commissions from Liz Clayborne, it's Commision Junction you'll need. Don't limit yourself!
4. Coupons and Sales. Many merchants offer coupon and promotional codes to their affiliates. Look for them and take advantage of them. Advertise the sales, too! People love saving money! Have you ever shopped online and then at the checkout you saw a box for coupon or promo code? Did you then open another browser and go try to find a coupon code for that site? I've done that a few times, as many people have. If you have a blog article entitled "Perfume.com coupon code" and then list the code as an affiliate link in the article with "click here to redeem", someone shopping at perfume.com WILL find it. When they see the box at the checkout for coupon code, many people will go to Google, type in "perfume.com coupon code," and find your article listed near the top. Like I said earlier, blog articles get into the search engines very quickly. Of course, my coupon blog, percentsavings.com, is filled with nothing but coupon codes and sales from 100s of online stores, and it's all affilate advertising.
5. Don't just add a link. Tell a little about the store/company and what they offer. If they were proudly founded in 1930, say so! If your link goes to their apparel section but they also offer bedding and kitchenware and dog collars, say so in your post! When you become an affiliate, you become a salesman. If you want commissions, make the merchant sound great!
6. Submitting isn't just for search engines. In addition to the search engines, submit your blog to forums sites that list blogs. Every incoming link helps, no matter where it is! For the sites that list blogs (bloggerinity.com, technorati.com, bloglines.com, etc.) you'll be required to link back to them, but that's a good thing! You should spend at least an hour a day just finding new places to submit to.
7. Consider Pay-Per-Click. Not to your site, but to the merchant's site, with your affiliate link as the URL. For instance, I use Google AdWords to advertise single sites I'm affiliated with, or even single products. Because of the Terms of Service I agreed to, I can't use the word "ZALES" as one of my keywords. But when I was notified by the affiliate company that ZALES was having a sale on children's jewelry, and I was given an affiliate link that landed on the sale page, I started a Google pay-per-click ad for it. I used the URL they gave me as the landing page so that it would have my affiliate tracking link in it, but I used "Zales.com" as the URL that shows up in the results, so that when it's clicked on in Google it goes to Zales but I still get a commission if they purchase. My search terms were Children's Jewelry, and Children's Jewelry Sale. I set it to 5 cents per click, and my entire Adwords campaign stops each day after I've spent $1. I kept this ad running for the duration of the sale. With the small number of clicks the ad got, I only spent about $6, but one purchase of an expensive item of jewelry gave me a commission of $34. Keep in mind, I'm using affiliate advertising, in this case, without ever having the link on any of my websites or blogs.
8. RSS. RSS feeds are becoming more and more popular. I subscribe to several blogs' RSS feeds, myself. It's just so much easier to get new articles to all my favorite blogs all in one place (I use Mozilla Thunderbird), and I know people who subscribe to RSS feeds appreciate seeing an RSS button on my site. It's very easy to implement, too. Just add a link on your blog to "http://yourdomain.com/?feed=rss2" and then anyone with an aggregator can subscribe to it. If you want to give them the option to subscribe to your blog's comments as well, the url is "http://yourdomain.com/?feed=comments-rss2." If you have a blog similar to my coupon site, RSS can really help you by sending your new items directly to a subscriber's aggregator, without you having to do anything at all!
9. Email signatures. For your email signature, use links to all your sites that have affiliate advertising on them. Family, friends, clients... anyone can be enticed to click on your ads!
10. Don't give up, and POST POST POST! It can become frustrating but NEVER give up! It takes time! Just keep working at it and you WILL start seeing some commissions eventually. My first blog was online for a few months and being added to daily before I started seeing commissions. Just be sure to post articles to your blogs constantly! Never miss a day!

Cheap and Effective Banner Advertising

by Brian Welch
One of the biggest complaints that I hear concerning banner advertising is that it is just too expensive to do effectively. Most of the major banner networks and search engines will not even talk to you for less than $1000.00 and most people who are starting out just don't have that kind of money to invest in advertising.
Well, if that is the case with you and your business, there are many other alternatives. Banner advertising can be very affordable and very effective so don't dismiss it so easily. In this article, I am going to discuss three very easy ways that you can accomplish this.
Trade Links
Cross Promotion is a very powerful method of Internet marketing and it will not cost you a dime. Look for sites that are compatible with yours but not competitive and send them an e-mail. Try to find sites that are getting the same amount of traffic as you are so it is a fair trade. Make your offer sound appealing and tell them about your web site, don't just ask if they want to trade.
Barter For Ad Space
Find some sites that you would like to advertise on and try offering them some of your products or services in exchange for ad space or a discount on ad space. This is starting to become a very popular technique and can really pay off if done properly.
Advertise on Smaller Sites
If you don't have a lot of money to invest in banner advertising then stay away from the big sites because chances are, you will not be able to afford it. Instead of advertising with one large company, find a bunch of smaller companies that except advertising. Their prices are usually much lower.
So how do you find sites to trade links with or advertise on? Try the search engines and search for sites that are similar to your own.

Cheap Advertising Sites

Are you interested in advertising as a small business, affiliate or for personal items? Are you also looking for free and/or reasonable advertising rates? If the answer is yes, I have compiled a list of Advertising sites to help you place your ads.
New affiliates or associates have a difficult time getting started. They often pay money to learn the “Secrets” of making money on line but, frequently do not get enough support. Don’t get me wrong, there are many classy, well supported “Secrets” programs but the truth is, you don’t have to pay a dime to become an affiliate marketer. A bit of research and all the marketing strategies can be found for free. Where do we advertise? I was pointed toward using Google Adwords.
Many of you are aware of Google Adwords. It is highly recommended for advertising but can be costly and ineffective if working with a low budget. With Google, you set your monthly budget, select keywords to target and are charged on a cost per click basis. The minimum budget allowed is $30/month or $1.00 per day. For the newcomer on a small budget, you will most likely find yourself clicked out of budget early, depending on the minimum bid for each of your keywords. One of my ad campaigns was budgeted for $1.00 per day but had minimum keyword bids of $5.00 and $10.00. My keywords were inactive. I tried all variations of Google recommended keywords but could not get a minimum bid of less than $5.00. To activate my keywords for this campaign, without increasing my budget, I ran my ads for a few hours per day. One click at $5.00 I found myself done for the day. I did get one sale from Google but not enough to cover my expenses. I highly recommend reviewing and joining the Google help forum’s before getting started. Ask questions, set a budget and stick to it.
Below I am listing for you free and/or cheap advertising sites.
1) Adpost - will run your free ad for 30 days with free renewal for 90 days. After 90 days you may opt for a paid ad.
2) Adlandpro - is one of the best for free ads, and offers an affiliate program to help you promote your business. The also offer free websites.
3) Amazon – You pay nothing until you sell you item.
4) CMathers - offers 7 days of free advertising with 4 free renewals. Better yet, 6 months for $5.00 or $12.95 for 1 year.
5) EBay – charges fees to list you item on their site. They do not allow linking to your home page or web page.
6) Ezine - offers free and paid ads reaching millions of subscribers. You will find the free ads under recommended links.
7) Google – You must set a minimum budget of $1.00/day. This is keyword based and you pay per click based on the minimum bid set for selected keywords.
8) InetGiant - offers a free service for starters. Once on your way you may want to explode your ads at minimal costs.
9) USFreeads – Offers two free ads. Affiliates, however, are required to pay $10.00 for a one year membership which allows 25 ads per month. Premium memberships are available with many more options.
10) Yahoo offers free advertising with duration of 7 days. Just click on “Post a Free Ad”. Don’t forget to renew the ad after 7 days. You can also opt to pay for more premium services.
11) ZipZapads allows free listings with duration of 30 days. Premium packages are also available.
Please read all rules and restrictions when placing your ads.
Please visit http://myweb.ecomplanet.com/rick9147/ for more information regarding advertising sites. I will strive to add additional advertising sites as I find them.

8 Low-Cost Advertising Ideas by Dale King

Despite what you may have heard, advertising doesn't necessarily have to be expensive. In this article, I'm going to give you eight low-cost advertising ideas. These ideas can be used for both online and offline businesses.
1. Article Marketing is far and away my favorite method of promoting my business. If you write articles and allow them to be freely published, your articles become viral, meaning your articles can actually spread like a virus and have the potential to be viewed by hundreds of thousands of Internet users.
2. Targeted ezine advertising is one of the most cost-effective ways to promote your business. For example, you can purchase an ad in DEMC for around $50 and reach 36,000 people. For a list of suitable ezines to advertise in, visit BestEzines.com
3. If done properly, Google Adwords is still a very cost-effective way to advertise your business, despite rising pay-per-click costs.
4. Advertise in local neighborhood newspapers. In some areas they're called "Pennysavers," and in other areas they're simply known as "shoppers." Whatever they're called, you can place your ad in front of thousands of eyeballs for as little as $10 a week.
5. Buy television ads on local cable TV. Cable tv ads are cheaper than you might think, and you can target your ads to run in specific parts of your city. Check with you local cable company for more information.
6. Advertise on high-traffic websites. There are many websites that will allow you to advertise your products and services on their websites very inexpensively. Visit AdBrite.com for more information.
7. Advertising in a local direct mail package like Valpak can also be very cost-effective, since you'll be sharing an envelope with other local businesses, you'll pay a fraction of what it might cost otherwise. For more information visit Valpak.com
8. Participating in online forums is an excellent way to get the word out about your business - and it's free. To find a forum related to your particular business, just go to your favorite search engine and type in the kind of forum you're looking for. For example, if you sell dolls, you would type in "doll forums." And if you sell real estate, you would simply type in real estate forums, etc.
