All in one internet marketing service for my small business? I have a Bed and Breakfast and I also make custom jewelry, but my adwords campaigns are losing serious money. Is there any company I can pay a monthly fee and they will guarantee so many -Backlinks, Leads, Website Visitors? I have looked at a few, but they are WAY too expensive for my budget. I have no idea about the web, but I do know there is business to be had.
I’ve lost a lot of money on AdWords and Facebook myself in the early days; so I know exactly how you feel. But I have lost more money paying for hits through other services. One site was simply sending me forwarded traffic from random web pages that have absolutely nothing to do with my services. I honestly wouldn’t trust any company or site that claims to send me a guaranteed certain number of hits or amount of traffic.
Nearly everyone uses Google these days, so your best options for getting good traffic are proper search engine optimization (SEO), legitimate link exchanges, social bookmarking and careful, researched use of Adwords or a managed Ad-Words campaign service such as ours.
SEO is also a service that we provide and is a much better solution than trying to do this for yourself. You can expose your site to penalties by Google if you progress any SEO back linking incorrectly and you should certainly steer away from a guaranteed number of hits a month. Paying per leads is a different option and this is a viable option.
Bookmarking your site at popular web 2.0 sites like Digg, Delicious, etc. is not a difficult task and will take you about 15 minutes a day and your done.
Adwords – you really need to make sure you are bidding on the proper terms and structuring your ads and landing pages correctly. Also, there are other paid ad programs besides AdWords, like Yahoo and Bing which you should also consider.
Good luck with your business.
