5 overlooked ways to market your work at home business
Everyone is always looking for more ways to market their work at home
business. You often here about PPC advertising, writing articles, link
exchanges, and a few other business marketing techniques that everyone uses.
However, there are many other ways to market your work at home business that
a lot of people just don’t think of.
I have offered five good business marketing techniques below that are often
overlooked. Of course, many people do use them but there’s not nearly as
much competition in these techniques as there is with some of the others.
Plus, these marketing techniques are all either free or very near it.
Getting traffic to your site for free or very little cost is always a good
thing in my opinion.
Here are five ways to market your work at home business
that you may not have thought of before:
1) Enhanced Business Card – Get a business card with color, an eye catching
background, and add your picture to it. Maybe you could also have a cool
quote or a free offer on it, plus anything else you can think of to get
The point is you need to make it stand out among all the other business
cards someone might see in a month. Make sure your website URL is on it in a
highly noticable place. Then, leave it everywhere you can, and hand it out

business marketing strategy ever thought up. Pretty much all the “big-dogs”

at your website, or in your newsletter, without telling anyone they will be
Say someone visits your website from an ad you placed that didn’t mentioned
anything about getting a free ebook. They will be absolutely delighted to
find the extra free gift.This is a great way to get people to not only
return to your site, but tell their friends about it too.
3) Sponsor Events - A great way to spread the word about your business is to
sponsor events in your area. There are many games, events, charity drives,
intramurals, little leagues, etc... That are just waiting for people like
you to give a little bit of your money to help out.
You will usually get your business name on a T-shirt, a sign, a flyer, or
something else related to the event. A lot of people will be seeing these
events and YOUR business name. It’s a great way to drive local traffic to
your online business website or offline business if you have one.
4) Blogs - Having your own business blog can be a great marketing tool. With
a blog you can quickly and easily offer free business advice, information,
fun stuff, resources, tips, or anything else you want.
If you have a very interesting and/or informative business blog people will
keep returning for the great stuff that your blog offers. Update it every
day or two with fresh info and you can build a strong following fairly

websites that you can sign. Most of them allow you to put a link to your
website when signing. This can be a good way to bring some traffic to your
site and get a one-way inbound link that those search engines really love.
Make sure you don’t just post a random comment or spam the guestbook. You
should actually check out the website and leave a useful message. This will
keep your reputation intact and provide the webmaster with usable
information. A win-win situation!
