When it comes to promoting your business, there are many types of advertising that you can use. The main categories are free and paid. Your budget will dictate which one you choose for your own business.

Some places where you can advertise your website for free are social sites, traffic exchanges and classified ad sites. A social site is a site like Facebook or IBO Toolbox. You can tell people you meet on these sites about your business. If you act like a used car salesman and are very pushy, you will have a hard time keeping any of your social network friends! At these sites you can usually buy advertising if you want to.

Traffic exchanges are sites where you visit someone's website for a specific amount of time in exchange for a visit to yours. Although most are free, all of these sites have an option to a paid upgrade. At some, the exhanges are done via email where you open messages and click a link to visit the site. For each site you visit you will be able to send an e-mail to anywhere from 1 to 1,000 people. Other sites are hit exchanges where you view a site for a specific amount of time and then just click the right icon to go on to the next site. At some of these sites you have to view 4 sites in order to have your site viewed once. Some sites offer a one to one ratio. It depends on the site. If you want to try out this type of advertising, I recommend this site that ranks them based on statistical testing:

Classified ad sites are sites like Craigslist. It's generally free to post an ad. You have to be sure to follow their terms or you may be banned. These sites get a high volume of traffic so if you post a catchy ad in the right category, you can generate income from your classifiied ad. If you post in the wrong category, your ad will probably be deleted.

Other ways to promote your business for free are adding a signature to the end of every e-mail you send, joining a forum where you can post regularly and have a signature with a link, and writing articles or Squidoo lenses. Here at IBO Toolbox you can add blog posts like this one to get traffic to your site and it is 100% free.

Paid advertising can vary greatly in cost. There is advertising for every budget. You may want to start small and work your way up to the more expensive advertising. Paid advertising can really take any form. You can use banners, text ads, solo ads, pop ups and pop unders, to name a few. Probably the most important thing you can do is track all of your advertising so you know where you are getting results. You don't want to waste your money.

Advertising that offers an opportunity to generate income is a real winner. Click the link to sign up and get 1,000 free Advertising Points.

The 'free and paid' advertising is the way to go! Great blog Jennifer.

Jennifer, thanks for educating us on the variety of options to advertise a business. I am intrigued by classified ads, I have not thought of it as a good place to advertise.
