We are all freebie seekers. It has been proven that giving some of your best away for free is one of the best ways to get customers. Ask Mike F, or Frank Kern, or Eben when their businesses turned the corner. I believe the answer will be when they started giving away their best stuff.
If your free stuff is really good the user will think–Wow Rick’s stuff that he sells must be really awesome. And if it is just good they will not be bummed because you have already over delivered.
One Step at a Time
Give away the first step and make it really good. Think through what they will really want if they succeed with your free product.
Whet their Appetite with the Free First Step
Get them on your email list with your free first step. What will they need next? Sell them the second step and make it really good. Then Sell them the next step.
There are basically two things that Google uses to rate your webpage.
- Content on your page
- Backlinks to your Page

Build an Ezine Article
This takes a little more time but is well worth it. The article once accepted by Ezine Articles gives you two very powerful links and often your article will get picked up and put in ezines and other websites. There are a number of article directories but I will normally only post to the top 5.
I have a bunch of blogs I add comments to regularly. I have several websites and I have several identities that I use to comment on blogs with. I store my favorite blogs to comment on in a file in my favorites. I use Firefox and I store them in a folder in my favorites.

What is an Affiliate Program?
It is a program where you will get paid when one of your website visitors does something. Usually the action required of the Visitor is for them to buy something. The Amazon Affiliate program started out as a program where you could talk about a certain book and then if your Visitor goes through your link to Amazon and buys the book you would get a percentage of the sale. There are thousands and thousands of affiliate programs out there.
