digg your home business
If you run your business from home, then one thing you know is that there is nothing better then free advertising. When you advertise for your home business, chances are that you are only reaching customers who are specifically looking for a service or product like the one you provide. But, if you could put your business in front of a large crowd of people who are just browsing the internet, chances are that you will attract some new clients who are simply just interested in what you have to offer.
Websites like Digg, and StumbleUpon are both very good ways to get this accomplished. Both websites have a setup where users can submit any type of news or information that they want. This information is then immediately published and categorized on the Digg or StumbleUpon website. Most of the traffic that Digg and StumbleUpon bring in are just internet surfers browsing through the Digg and StumbleUpon communities looking for any information that interests them. If you post your business in front of these viewers, it can be a very effective form of advertisement.
Digg and StumbleUpon post submissions in the form of a teaser, kind of like what is used on BrightHub. When readers click on the title, it will bring up a teaser. If the reader is interested by the teaser, than he or she will be able to navigate directly to your website and view the content. Also, readers can "Digg" your submission by giving it a good rating. The more ratings your submission gets, the more publicity it will receive from Digg.
By submitting an interesting story reguarding your business, you are not only putting the information in front of viewers, but you are also creating a direct link back to your business's webpage. That way interested readers can have full access to all of your services or products listed on your site.
I have personally used Digg and I must say that it has brought a lot more business to my website. I highly recommend using both Digg, and StumbleUpon do drive traffic to your business. It is free, and it is a great source of advertisement.
