Another source of free advertising is publishing articles that others can reprint freely.† People such as webmasters and e-zine publishers are always in need of fresh content.† Write about something you are interested in.† If you have a certain area of expertise, write an article about that.† Place a resource box at the end of your article with all of your pertinent contact information.† Donít attempt to sell your product here.† Do that when you get contacted for more information.
