One overlooked or misused form of advertising is free advertising. However, this can be a very
important means of growing your business.

There are innumerable free classified advertising sites on the internet. Obviously, some will be
better than others, and the value of any site may be anywhere from good for your business to a
total waste of time.

One immediately visible advantage of free advertising is the adjective, free. Many people starting
internet businesses simply do not have the funds to buy advertising.

By the same token, a disadvantage to free advertising is that since it is free, everybody floods it
with all kinds of ads, and it is easy for your message to get lost in the flood of advertisements.
Another disadvantage is that unlike people who look through newspaper classifieds or advertising
papers such as are found at the local convenience store, few people on the Internet actually visit
online classified sites in hopes of finding a car or piece of stereo equipment. Even if they do, they
are not likely to see your ad if you are trying to interest someone in an internet income opportunity.

So, how can you turn free advertising to your advantage?

First, as mentioned, some sites will have the potential for improving your business in one way or
another, and some will be totally worthless. Since the advertisement itself may or may not be
effective, or may or may not be effective at a certain website, testing is necessary. Different ads
must be tried, and they must be tried on different sites.

A difficulty in determining the value of a given free advertising site is the fact that with the advent
of automatic advertising submitters, many sites are hardly ever visited by humans any more. Only
the automatic programs drop by and leave off their ads and move on to the next site. Therefore,
one of the first criteria to look for might be whether or not ads must be manually posted. At least in
that case, humans will visit and may actually see your ad.

By the way, even a site which can be posted to automatically may be of value in the area of linking
and search engine optimization. Most of these links will be fleeting or of little value to a search
engine spider, but you may be able to build a little stable of sites which will help search engines
find your site. I know of several sites where I regularly post ads exactly for this purpose.
Ablewise.com (which requires manual submission) for example is regularly visited by search
engine spiders, and if I place an ad there, the page I have linked to will soon show up in search
engine listings.

Second, free advertising is most effective if it is not used to sell anything. In fact, it will operate
best when you use the free advertising to give something of value away in order to establish a
condition of trust between yourself and a prospective customer. In the heyday of mail order
advertising, this was often referred to as the two step method.

It worked, and still works, like this. The seller offers a free report, such as How to Make Money
from Your Kitchen Table. The ad simply makes the offer, and often would request the reader to
send a free, self-addressed, stamped envelope for the free report. In this way, the seller was able
to get his materials in the hands of several interested parties for only the cost of the report and the
ad. The seller was saved the postage by the reader who provided the envelope and postage.
Enclosed with the report were materials offering other items, often more reports, which were sold
by the seller.

If the seller had provided a report of value on the first mailing, it was possible that the reader would
purchase one of the items. If not, the name and address was still on the sellers records (mailing
list) and the reader would receive more mailings and/or a collection of such names and addresses
would be sold to others who had not built their own lists as yet.

The same thing is done on the internet, and many successful advertisements offer free
advertising, software, reports, or services in order to entice the online reader to respond, thus
placing his or her contact information at the disposal of the advertiser.

This sort of advertising on the internet has spawned two distinct advertising methods which, while
free, are not actually advertisements. These two methods are the writing of articles and the
creation of lead capture pages.

When someone writes an article of interest or value, they can publish it for free at several sites on
the internet. They are usually allowed to include a little information about themselves, including a
link to their business website. Generally, to be most effective, the article will be on a subject
relevant to the topic of their website and product. Since these articles may eventually be placed on
hundreds of websites over long periods of time and are mainly read by those interested in the
topic, they are very effective as advertising. If the author writes well and provides value, the reader
may come to respect the writer well enough to accept their advice or guidance and purchase
goods or services from them.

With a lead capture page, the reader cannot get the free gift, which is often information, but
sometimes a service or product, without giving the advertiser their name and contact information.
The advertiser will then use this information to regularly make offers of their products. It is quite
common for an internet surfer to leave his or her name and email address in order to receive a
course of some kind which is delivered by email to their inbox. The course will be delivered as a
series of messages over time, and each will contain the advertisers sales message. The content of
the course will often be relevant to the product being sold. In time, the advertiser assumes the
stature of friend and expert in the eyes of the reader, and this will often result in a sale being
made.

Free advertising can often be effectively used to lead potential customers to the lead capture
pages or even to the articles where they can begin to make the acquaintance of the writer. While
the free advertisement seldom is effective in actually spawning a sale, it can be an excellent
means of gathering customers.
