Don't Spend One Cent On Advertising
Until You Read This Page!

Many ISPs and dot-coms complete their web sites and think the next step is advertising. Quite frankly, it's usually a waste of money unless all of the basics have already been completed. Compared to the cost of advertising, the basics are very inexpensive, so why not first set the stage and take advantage of the free or low cost things prior to spending your funding. One of the basics covered on another page is the creation of an associate or affiliate program. This allows you to leverage each visitor to your site by offering them an opportunity to earn profits by helping you promote your site. But that's another page. Here, we want to determine the best and least expensive way to get qualified "surfers" to your sites rather than those of your competitors.

By far, most surfers use search engines and directories to find what they are looking for. Therefore, it is critical that search engines and directories know who you are, what you offer and how to find you. This is accomplished by submitting your site to each search engine and directories. This is not a one time task, but an ongoing process.

There's a pervasive myth among many web site managers that submitting your web site to hundreds of search engines will result in thousands of new visitors. That's just not true. 

When someone queries a search engine for a keyword related to your site's products or services, does your page appear in the top 10 matches, or does your competition? If you're listed but not within the first two or three pages of results, you lose, no matter how many engines you submitted your site to.

There are two obstacles to solving this problem. First you have to know the many techniques that will move you into a top 10 position. Then, once you learn how to achieve a top 10 search position, you have to monitor your progress - a crucial step, and it normally takes many hours each month to do correctly. 

A top 10 ranking in a major search engine like Infoseek, Lycos, or AltaVista will often generate more targeted traffic than an expensive banner advertising campaign - and, a good search engine position is like highly targeted advertising that is both FREE, and effective! 

Quantum knows the secrets to accomplishing this. Odds are that you found our site because we are ranked among the top 10-30 with the search engines you used to search for the topic or service you have found at our site. It has worked so well for us that we now offer this as a service to our clients. In other words, we practice what we preach.

We would love to show off our skill by doing the same for you. However, if you are a "do-it-yourselfer," you can use the very same software we use for 30 days at no charge. If you have the time to learn these secrets, First Place Software, the makers of WebPosition Gold, gives you all of the information you require to effectively accomplish this for yourself. However, nothing worthwhile in life comes easy. Our clients may think it is magic, but if you do this yourself, be prepared to invest a substantial amount of time both initially and on an ongoing basis.

Over 90% of the search engine traffic to most web sites comes from 8 to 10 major search engines. Therefore, you should prepare your server for a considerable increase in traffic after achieving just a few top 10 search positions with Quantum or WebPosition Gold.
