There are a lot of ways that you can leverage the internet to promote your website or even your physical location. I’ll be writing about a few of these methods in this article.

Articles like this one are great means of getting traffic to a website and also an easy means of getting your business contact information out to the masses. Assuming you produce good content, there is no shortage of opportunities to get your articles published and read. Be sure to have a strong call to action.

If you have a retail business, you can get your business details listed in local directories including both Google and Yahoo which have “local” listings and based on the search will generate a listing usually at the very top of the search engines. For instance, if you search for “Salt Lake City plumber”, you’ll get a list of plumbers, their contact information. You can submit your own business information so that you have local traffic to your site or store.

Another service similar to the local listings is Google base which is Google’s way of creating listings of events, products, photos, and just about anything else that people submit. This is a great way to get your products to show up in Google’s search listings. It doesn’t cost anything to list in Google Base and also has options for uploading spreadsheets.

Online classified ad websites such as Craigslist are great ways to get the word out about new products, new events, products for sale and can be a great way to list regionally specific sales as well. One strategy that works great for online classifieds is a coupon code that can be used on a website or printed out and brought into a store. People tend to respond to offers where there is a “special” deal or even a perceived deal.

If you’ve heard of Facebook or MySpace, then you’ve heard of social networking websites. As much as most of these sites are meant to keep people in touch and connected, these can also be leveraged as means of networking with other business owners or customers that may also be able to get value from your products and services.

Another way to get traffic to your site is to comment on other people’s blogs. This works the best when you have blogs that get a lot of comments and posts that get a lot of views. Adding a comment that provides insight and adds value to the original message will get people more interested in what you have to say on your website which will create traffic to your site, and depending on the blog will also create some search engine optimization benefits and help you with your website’s ranking.

There are several things you can do to get traffic to your website and if you’re wiling to spend the time, you can get a lot of traffic for free. These are only a few of the methods that can help you.
