Hi,

I want to start a marketing campaign soon for my company to get more sales and bring more buyers to our website. However, I have a very limited budget, I would say between 500 and 1000. What would be the best way to use this money to get the most bang for my buck? I have considered buying a years subscription to yahoo's paid inclusion, but I am already listed in the search engines. But maybe it could raise the position more to get people to click on me instead.

I have also considered one way or two way links, but need to pay someone to do this for me.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I'm not too certain that $1,000 is going to cause any bang at all. You might get a little fizzle here and there, but no bangs!

If that is the extent of your budget, save it and use it to develop something on the site to attract more visitors, that will bring more bang in the long run.

I am spending money to totally redo the site, this is separate from the marketing budget.

I use google adwords already and get some movement from that, but not enough and as keywords have increased in price, I can't afford to use it any more to get the results I need.

>>I am spending money to totally redo the site

Before you rebuild, study (which isn't costly, it's actually free) what makes a site search engine friendly, and learn to do thorough keyword research. Those are foundational for eventually getting organic search traffic, and "studying" what goes into making a site that converts well is another area to delve into.

You can actually market on a very, very limited budget, but spending time learning is the best investment you can make.

I have pretty much done that for the last several years, I did a lot of self SEO already, and my products and services are very niche, so it is tough to find new customers as it is. I am a one man team, so I don't have a lot of extra time to do more. I only get about 60 visitors a day to my site, and I have done whatever I know how to do in self SEO..
