Advertising for free using Google Drive for web hosting

The internet provides plenty of ways to advertise your business for free. There are of course compromises you have to make such as if you advertise in a free service, chances are if someone finds your listing then they’ll also be presented with rather large ads from your competitors. Google now provides free space and if you know how to use it, you can use it to advertise for free.

I decided to take Google’s service for a spin. I modified one of my programs which enables anyone to create a list of items for sale, share, loan, or even giving items away. The program enables you to include pictures of items. The beauty with the Google services is I can enter items into the program, click on a button to generate the page for the internet and Google’s services will automatically upload the new page and pictures almost immediately.

As an example, this link is to a site which displays a list of books I’m happy to loan to family, friends and clients.

Google provides free space on the internet and I know of a very good free program you can use to create your site, so now people can literally advertise whatever they want for free.

The beauty of JustLocal is JustLocal has been designed to link to and promote your page on the internet. The sites JustLocal links to often get a very good position in Google which increases traffic to the site. JustLocal’s main advantage is businesses outside of the area can’t advertise on a local page and thus smaller local businesses don’t lose business to bigger businesses with deeper pockets for advertising.
