You’ve already figured out that your small business needs a web site to compete with the big boys and maintain every aspect of your relationship with your customers. But once you have your web site up and running, you’ll need web site promotion ideas so that people know about your web site. After all, no one will visit your web site if they don’t know it exists.
The first of your website promotion ideas is submitting your web site to all the major search engines. Search engine traffic is a major draw to web sites and most web masters will tell you that the vast majority of their traffic is coming from search engine clicks. Most of the major search engines have a specific page you can use to submit your site. Once it’s submitted, it will usually take a few days to a week before it starts showing up in keyword searches.
Other web site promotion ideas include advertising your web site on internet message boards and discussion forums centered on subjects related in some way to your business. For example, if you run a small business selling pet supplies, you could go to message boards and discussion forums frequented by pet lovers.
Other tried and true web site promotion ideas include affiliate and banner exchanges. You can contact other web sites involved with the same target market and ask to exchange banners on each others’ web sites, or you can sign up at a banner exchange portal that will automatically generate banners for other sites on your site and banners for your site on other participating sites.
For even more web site promotion ideas, there are many online resources dedicated solely to teaching people how best to create awareness of their web site through the internet at large and strategies for attracting more visitors to their web site. Start with these basic ideas and when you’re ready, explore for more!

We often get newbies emailing us asking whether or not investing in HYIP’s is worth the time and the risk. This is a great question and the short answer is “it all depends”.
First of all, the main question you must ask yourself before investing in any HYIP is: “Do you plan on investing money that you will definitely need in the future?” In other words, is your life going to be made worse off if you lose the money that you plan to invest? Unlike secure Stocks, Bonds, and other financial investments, HYIP’s differ in that they are more like a game of poker than a true investment.
As an HYIP investor you must be able to tell if the Program admin is bluffing or telling the truth. Are there signs of a bluff, such as; massive advertising campaigns, cheap hosting of the site, warnings from other investors, or extremely high payout claims? If so then you can avoid that particular program. The problem is that not everyone is a poker (HYIP) expert. It’s often hard to distinguish between a bluffer or an honest admin.
Also just like poker, you shouldn’t go in expecting to play one hand and leave a winner. You must bring enough money to the table to play a while and use your skills to outsmart your opponent.
People often email us asking where they should invest their $5. We usually respond telling them to put it in the bank instead. In our opinion you should not be investing in HYIP’s with under $50. Why do we say this? Well usually the less money you have to invest, the more of a return you want to earn.
With only $5, investing in a program that pays 5% per week (even though it’s probably more stable) would not be appelaing since you would only earn 25 cents per week. Instead, most people with low amounts of money tend to go for the big quick payers, ie. programs that offer 10% per day or more. Usually these programs are scams right from the start. If however, you have $1000 to invest you can easily put it in several low paying secure programs (perhaps 5 programs each paying between 4-10% per week). This way you are earning a noticable amount while also being safe and secure.
The best advice we can give you is to learn a strategy. Just like in Poker, a smart player can outsmart his/her opponents and walk away a winner.
