Beyond Pay Per Click: Advertise your eBook for Free on Plugboards

The Closet Entrepreneur by Kendra Leah Fuller

A good online marketing campaign incorporates many different advertising venues such as, pay per click, banner ads, and social networking. Along with paid advertising, there are many places a person can advertise for free online. After ten years of doing business on the internet, I thought you couldn’t teach this old dog any new tricks…enter plug boards.

This neat little tool is very simple. Basically, it is a board of advertising that someone is displaying on their website or blog. All you need is the right size image, along with the url for that image (where it resides on the internet) and the url of the page you want to link to.
To find out the url for your image, right click on it then click properties. You will see the http:// address for the image. Just copy and paste it into the form on the plug board. Obviously, you can only do this with images you have the right to distribute.

You can even download your own plug board for free to have on your own website or blog. Why would someone want to do this? The internet is a network. The more links you have coming and going from your website, the higher you will be listed in search engines – the best free advertising.

To find plug boards that you can advertise on for free, simply do a Google search for “Free Plug Boards”. Choose plug boards that are relevant to what you are advertising. If you are selling product, place your ad on a shopping plug board. If you are advertising yourself as a virtual assistant, place the ad on a business services plug board.
