When we first get on the internet we are told that there is a lot of advertising available. If you are starting a work at home business the first thing you come come across is get free classified advertising. Well there are two kinds of Classified advertising paid and free. Of course we all would like to get it free.
As they say you get what you pay for and in Work at home business that is certainly the truth. Will you get a lot of traffic with free classified ads? Well my experiences is no. I see free classified ads as a come on for you to buy "PAID" classified ads. I never got any traffic with free classified ads.
The question then become do "PAID" classified ads work. The Answer is yes you can get traffic with paid classifieds, but be careful because what you want is "TARGETED TRAFFIC". Targeted traffic is traffic from people that are interested in your product. There are may people that guarantee you traffic for a price. But if it is not targeted it does you no good. Well why would people visit your website if they are not interested in your product? Because they get paid to visit web sites.
Here is how that works. A promoter advertises that he will pay for people to surf the net and click on ads. He pays say 2 cents per click. Many people will do that and spend their time clicking ads---traffic. The same promoter will advertise he can get you guaranteed traffic. He charges you 10 cents per click.
You get a lot of hits but no sales for your Work at Home business. It was not people interested in your product, they were interested in the 2 cents. The promoter makes an 8 cent profit.
Does this mean Paid Classifieds do not work. No! It means if you are going to advertise with classifieds be careful. Make sure the traffic is targeted traffic that is looking for your product. There are people out there that sell that type of traffic. Do some research on the internet and by all means start small and test. It can payoff but it requires a little work.
