My Top 10 Most Useful Free Marketing Tools Of 2010
At the end of the year, everyone is making lists and
I thought it would be helpful if I gave you my most
useful marketing tools of 2010. All of these are
free and there’s no reason why these tools can’t also
help your website or your online marketing.
While they are geared towards marketing, they can also
be used for getting traffic to any website. I also believe
it is the “USE” of “ALL” of these tools in combination
which has helped me succeed online.
So here in no particular order, are my most useful
free marketing tools of 2010:
1. SeoQuake for Firefox
This invaluable SEO tool will give you vital stats
about your own site and those of your competitor. I
use this extensively to check out my linking partners
and how I can better compete with my competition.
Very helpful. www.seoquake.com
2. Google Analytics
Getting traffic is only half the battle, knowing what
that traffic does on your site is extremely important.
I use this program to make my pages perform better and
bring in more sales. Knowledge is everything on the web.
3. Microsoft’s Commercial Intention Tool
Picking the right profitable keyword phrases is the
first step to earning revenue from the web. This very
useful tool from Microsoft will tell you the probability
or how likely your chosen keyword will have commercial
intention or results.
4. Addthis Social Bookmark Button
Social bookmarking has become very important for getting
targeted traffic and for getting higher rankings. You simply
must have an easy way for your visitors to bookmark your
content in all the social networking sites. I find the
Addthis button extremely useful for this purpose.
5. WordPress Blogging Software
Using WordPress blogs are very beneficial because they are
SEO friendly and search engines really like and favor
them. One of the easiest ways to create profitable sites
and adding helpful “plug-ins” makes them even more useful.
6. YouTube Videos
Videos are the future of marketing on the web, so using
YouTube videos to promote your site or product is a no-brainer.
I have also found videos are very important for SEO reasons.
Simple, direct and very effective for getting your message
on the web and into the search engines. You must include
this social book-marking/messaging site in your promotion
and online marketing. www.twitter.com
Surprisingly, along with sites like Compete, I have found
myself using Alexa as one of my most valuable information
gathering tools. While not entirely accurate, it does give
you information you can use to further your marketing goals.
Article marketing is still my most effective marketing tool
on the web. I find using sites like Ezinearticles and GoArticles
vital to my whole online promotion.
10. Search Engines
Hands down, getting top rankings for your lucrative keywords
in the major search engines, is still the most valuable marketing
tools you can have in your tool-kit. I find gearing my marketing
and promoting towards Google has paid off handsomely for me.
Achieving and maintaining those top rankings in Google will make
or break your online endeavors; in 2010 or in any year for the
Happy New Year And all the best for 2011
Helping You Succeed Online Since 2002!
P.S. These are the Actual web marketing tools which
I use daily to earn a full-time online living:
