On an earlier blog entry, I gave you this list of free, press-release posting sites, http://www.rembrandtwrites.com/FreePressReleasePostingSites.htm.

But are you using these free tools to build buzz and sales too?

Free Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Add the keywords people search for online, and you can significantly increase site visitors and sales. And there are free services to help you find just the right words.

Take a look at the free-trial services at www.wordtracker.com and www.keyworddiscovery.com.

Both services are easy to use. And before you know it, you’ll have SEO keywords on all your online copy to help bring in new customers.

Free Blogs.

If you don’t have a blog, you are missing out on an opportunity to share valuable information with potential customers. And it’s easy to start your own blog with a free service like www.blogger.com or http://wordpress.org/. And once you start writing entries, try to insert some of your SEO keywords to attract more attention.

Now, it does take some extra time to use these free services, but they are well worth the effort!

Do you have questions about your public relations and SEO copywriting? Please let me know here or at www.rembrandtwrites.com. I’d love to hear from you! Thanks!
