5 ways to effectively promote your website under $50

So, you’re finally done with the long-awaited website of your company. Congratulations! However, don't sit back too soon- you've got a lot of important things to do. The next step is to spread the word about your company and product. And, what can you do to boost traffic to your website with minimum expenses?  There are a bunch of available options on the worldwide net, and here are some of the most effective ones.

Donation backlinks

Get donation backlinks

Donation links have become highly popular as a link-building strategy. You can obtain an authoritative backlink for a few dollars towards a charity or cause that you contribute to. Agree that it’s a ''win-win'' solution for both parties - PR for a link-builder and donation for the charity. Use donation backlinks as a tool but not the focus of your link-building campaign.

To get more value out of this strategy, you should check the page rank your link will be on as it influences the quality of your link.  You don’t want to see your link on a no-follow back page, do you?

Bloggers' reviews

Ask bloggers to review your website

Another low-cost strategy of promoting your website is asking bloggers to review it. Links and auspicious reviews from blogging sites with an active readership can also make your website more visible and shared on social networks across the web.

To pique a top blogger's interest, you can offer something in return for a review. Think of something creative to offer the online content creator in exchange for his/her service. (Standard options like a tip or backlink are no longer appealing for skillful bloggers). It can be a free product, a discount code to their readers, or funding a contest on their blog.
