Pack some more punch in your online marketing at no cost.

Jan 15th 2011 at 3:11 PM

I just ran across a service that could be extremely useful to the online marketing community. I haven't been using it but a few days, so can't say whether their income generating possibilities have merit.

You can get free blogs which they host for you, which isn't all that special these days, I know. The fact that they're free can come in pretty handy for folks just starting out who don't have enough income being generated yet to devote to hosting their own sites.

Here's a link to one I just made which isn't fleshed out yet, as I just began using it, but you'll be able to see an example of what's available without cost.

Don't pay much attention to my site as much to the platform it's presented by. I don't have adsense anymore since my account got slapped a couple years back, but the adsense ads showing would be mine a percentage of the time if I entered my publisher info.

So far I haven't run into any limitations because of being a free user, and their stripe across the top of my pages is pretty unobtrusive while being noticeable enough people might be interested in learning more about them, which would benefit me if they sign up or purchase advertising.

Granted, they do offer upgrades for premium themes and more storage, but for someone getting started the free level is not very limited at all. I could see this being real handy for SEO purposes by linking from there to your established sites, if nothing else.

As far as I've seen my admin area is a installation with some included SEO plugins, as it works just like my own hosted blogs. If you're working with no budget and could use another web property to post links to your main site, or just want a place to get started, this could be a good option for you.

My example site

There is an affiliate program and the potential to spend money if you want to for more features, but I can't vouch for any of that and won't push it since I've just begun using my free site. Doing my best to keep it real, and keep it free so folks who need to earn money before having to spend money can do just that.
