6: Promote Yourself Internally
See that banner space on your web pages? It can be used for more than just selling banner ads. It can be used by you.
While you're waiting for Microsoft and AOL to buy banner ads on your site (don't hold your breath), you can create house banners that promote the products or services that you sell. Design a series of banners that you can slip into a variety of pages on your web sitefrom your home page on down. The ads can bring attention to other areas of your sitedaily specials, a clearance center, etc.or entice them to join your preferred shoppers club.

These house ads are attention-getting and cost you nothing.
