You have already designed your own homepage or blog and you are looking for ways and methods to increase awareness of your website? Of course you are free to hire an expert and put him in charge of your advertising needs. But with passion and commitment you can take care of it yourself. The following 5 tips will help you to successfully promote your website:
1. Attractive design
The first impression is essential and determines if a visitor still wants to reside on your website. Therefore, it is important to have a clear structure and to avoid an overload of the webpage with too much content. It is also recommended to focus on 2-4 harmonizing colors. The background should ideally be held in white or black.
2. Relevant Content
There is a good reason for the fact that the saying “Content is King” from the Anglo-American Internet-area is so popular. In order to have users visit your website regularly, the content has to be interesting and relevant. Therefore, put yourself in the shoes of your target group and try to generate an added value on your webpage. You should always bear in mind that it is important to differentiate yourself from your competitors.
3. Free Online-Marketing
The Marketing of a website does not necessarily cost money. Our online-business eBesucher provides this service for free. eBesucher runs a far-reaching and international advertising network. The principle is very simple: While using our Surfbar, you will see the websites of other users displayed and in exchange we will provide you interested visitors for your own webpage. Participating is definitely free of any costs and you can join us straight away.
4. Special offers
With special offers on your website you will not only differentiate yourself from your competitors but also develop your Unique Selling Proposition (USP). In case you are selling a product, it is recommended to offer your customers special product packages which they are unable to acquire in regular shops. Such offers spread quickly around Internet users and are very likely to be shared. It has already been proven to be worthwhile to focus on providing products and services on certain niches.
Customer Loyalty becomes increasingly important. This is due to the fact, that the customer acquisition requires much more efforts than the Customer Retention. Therefore, give your clients the option to benefit from signing up for a newsletter. This marketing tool is particularly effective when it has been adjusted to the individual interests of the subscribers.
During the past, some of you were experiencing trouble with the eBesucher restarter. In some cases, the restarter has reopened the surfbar whenever a site had been promoted for longer than 60 seconds. We have fixed this bug and restored the complete functionality of the restarter. The eBesucher can yet again take full control of your surfbar whenever you are not sitting in front of your desk. Please note: It is not necessary to reinstall or update the restarter.
Keep in mind that using the eBesucher restarter in combination with the surfbar is optional and not mandatory. You can find all necessary information about the restarter in the members area by clicking on Traffic Exchange –> Surfbar and Restarter
Good news for all premium advertisers! The traffic exchange now has a new feature that allows you to target your ads to a specific browser language. This means that you can now choose to only advertise to those users, whose browser language coincides with the language of your website. In combination with the geo-targeting feature, anyone should now be able to reach the desired target group very accurately. The new feature is available to anyone who has signed up for a Premium or a Premium-Plus membership.
EDIT: meanwhile the surfing with Firefox 23 is working again. The error has been resolved by our developers by using a workaround.
The new version of the Mozilla Firefox webbrowser contains a security feature, which disallows using the eBesucher surfbar. We are working on resolving this issue in the long run, but as for now, you will have to manually modify your browser settings in order to continue using the surfbar. Below you will find a brief guide on how to modify the firefox settings in a few easy steps:
1. Enter about:config in the Mozilla Firefox address bar
2. In the following window, press the I’ll be careful, I promise -button:
3. Next to the search field at the top, write mixed and press the enter -button.
4. Choose the security.mixed_content.block_active_content setting and click on it with the right mouse button, a small context-menu will appear, click on Toggle in order to modify the default setting from ‘true’ to ‘false’:
5. You can continue using the surfbar once the value has been switched from ‘true’ to ‘false’.
