    classified ads

    I would add that there are also free classified ad forums where you can place you porduct or service. These free forums allows to add link in signature and link directing your potencial client to the product/service page. I use it by myself. I have a few forum links but for now I can not give them here. ad forums are very useful because you promote both your site and product. Try in google free classified ad forum.

    Nice posts. Along with these SEO techniques, SMM (social media marketing) is also helpful. Try that out!

    velsh mentioned a lot of ways to promote a business for free or inexpensively. i think you can also include sponsorships on clothing or something like that. a little website link at the back of the shirt or at the sleeves or at the left side front of shirt. well, this should be done in fashion as to not make the shirt or something look like an advertisement billboard. or you can also make stickers!

    To be honest, "Answers" sites doesn't really help that much in link building, unless a few traffic every now and then, since these links are NOFOLLOW.
    Other than that, I consider it as SPAMMING and OVERUSING the system made to help other people in need and to those who wants their questions answered.

    Another free promotion idea is to research blogs and websites in your niche. Contact the owners with an example of your writing style and offer to write a guest post or article with completely unique content for their site. If you're a good writer, you'll likely get a positive response because website owners are always happy to get unique content.

    How this helps you:
    1. You can have a backlink in your bio on the article.
    2. The website where it's posted will already have a following. You gain their attention with the added benefit of an endorsement from a website they already trust and frequent.
    3. It helps to establish you as a thought leader in your field.

    Not every business used classifieds, it depends on type of business. But article submission, blog commenting and related forum posting are easy ways to promote your business for free.

    Hi,

    Great tips. But you have missed Social Media Marketing. This really helps to promote your business for free. You can start a business page in social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, G+ and many more and improve number of visitors and sales in your business. By sharing post, images, videos, links and many more you can make your customers follow your website frequently.

    Why? What are the advantages, or disadvantages, of each method? What makes these two better than other methods? Your posts would be more helpful if you could expand upon your thoughts and opinions.
