How To Get Free Advertising By Giving Away Online Content

Giving away content is a powerful way to get free advertising. For example, give other people permission to use your article on their web site or in their e-zine. The resource box at the end of your article acts as an ad. In return, you get free advertising. It's a win/win situation for both you and the people that need the extra content.

There are many forms of free content. It could be articles, reports, news stories, e-books, e-zines, e-mags, virtual e-mail courses, press releases, web books, etc.

You can take it a step further and make giving away content an even more powerful way to get free advertising. For example, give your free e-book to one person and allow them the rights to also give it away. Do you see what I'm leading up to? Let's say only 20 people download your e-book. Those 20 people may give away your e-book to 20 more people. That's a total of 400 people that have seen your ad in the e-book. And it just keeps multiplying!

If you keep producing free content over a long period of time it starts building up. Now, take all your free content and create an online directory. You can use your free content directory as a web site traffic generator. You can ask people to add the directory to their web site by linking to yours.

In conclusion, giving away content gives you three powerful ways to get free advertising. You can submit free content, allow other people to give away your free content, or have people link to your web site to give away the free content. My advice is to take it one step at a time and this system will bring traffic to your web site over and over for years to come.
