3 Ways to Promote Your Website When You Don’t Have Any Money

Who says you need money to market your business. That's one of the biggest myths in online marketing.

Heck, online marketing is popular because it allows the little guy to compete with the large corporations without needing tons of cash.

Here's how you market your website when you have no money.

Step 1: Go to Quora and search for all of the questions that people have within your space and answer them. When it makes sense, link back out to your website. This is so effective that my Quora profile gets hundreds of thousands of views each month.

Step 2: Create content in different formats (text, video, audio) and promote them on the social web (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Quora). You can post the same content on multiple social sites as Google DOES NOT penalize for duplicate content.

When using this tactic make sure you only put part of your content on social media and make the readers click over back to your site to read the rest.

Step 3: Google for forums within your space and respond to questions. Within your forum response add a signature that lists your website. The better response you give the more traffic you will get.

That's how you market your website when you can't spend any money on marketing. 🙂

      You should change the URL structure and remove any extraneous characters. ($#?&!><,.[]{}) such as those.... it will help with crawling.

    Amazing tips. Thanks for sharing.
    I just had a question that Google tells that posting a link in a forum site is against Google webmaster guidelines. Will it be safe for me to post a signature link in forums?

    • Neil Patel July 26, 2017 at 2:28 pm #

      You can… just nofollow the link and you will be fine.

    • Mark Henry July 27, 2017 at 4:10 am #


    • Neil Patel July 27, 2017 at 7:39 am #

      No problem

    Well Neil:

    But if we still have cost of heat count right? It is because one person cannot do all the things man. What did you think?


    • Neil Patel February 10, 2019 at 11:01 am #

      Not sure I understand your question fully, Jon. Once you get to a certain point, though, you will need to bring other people on board to help.

    • Jon Ching February 10, 2019 at 12:48 pm #

      @Neil Patel Thanks for your reply. I mean even I dont spend on marketing then we still need to pay for someone to help to do the things that you mention above but your suggestion is definitely useful 🙂 Thanks again man
