Increasing My Presence Online

Focusing on the use of online advertising to direct traffic to my website. Placed ad for a team member on craigslist recently. My phone has not stopped ringing. Too bad these calls are mostly computer generated Some are individuals on the other end offering to guide me to riches. Don’t get me wrong, I have received genuine responses also.

These ads take very little time to place and require little or no registration. My ads on craigslist like many other free listing sites disappear or get pushed out of sight quickly. I believe the ads rank really high in Google. I find myself placing ads over and over, making some slight changes within the title. Still not convinced this is where I want to spend my time.

Sites that take more time to place an ad (30 minutes for some) and allow me to use tags, describe in great detail, add links and share with other sites actually get stronger results. Maybe it’s the audience.

I’ve started adding links to my social networking profiles, such as twitter and face book. These ads stick around longer, they remain on the site in view for a greater time. One advantage, once I place the ad I’m done! Should I refresh them often?

My goal is to use both types of advertising for a while and track my efforts.
