Promoting your Yahoo Store for Free

"Build it and they will come" may have worked for Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams, but doesn't hold true when it comes to attracting website visitors to your Yahoo Store. You may have a great website, but it is all for nothing unless shoppers know you exist.

The basics of promoting a great Yahoo Store can bring tremendous success with the proper marketing steps. If you are willing to spend your time and effort wisely, then there are ways to market your storefront for free.

Actually, you can promote any website for free. It doesn't necessarily have to be a store with ecommerce enabled.

Here are some free tips to market your site for free:

  • Spread your URL around by talking about it and putting it on every piece of literature you own
  • Join your local Chamber of Commerce and have your site be listed with them
  • Yahoo has a set of free promoting tools that you can use in your endeavors
  • Join online forums that are related to your niche and drop your URL
  • Start a blog and use other blogs

These are just a few free ways. I hope to expand in depth about bringing massive website traffic to your Yahoo web site in the near future.
