Many who decide to put up a website and make a living online have the idea that traffic to their site will not be a problem. "If I build it, they will come." It seems to be a popular approach for a lot of webmasters.
The sad truth is that traffic doesn't just show up at your website without some planned, consistent effort on your part. They aren't knocking your front door down just because you have a fantastic looking website. This is true whether you are in mlm, direct sales, affiliate programs, etc. Today's free network marketing information tip covers 3 quick ways you can generate traffic to your site.
Someone once said: "Running a business without advertising, is like winking in the dark. You know what you are doing, but no one else does."
If you are needing more traffic to your site, here are three specific approaches that are guaranteed to work:
BUY SOME TRAFFIC-
One of the fastest ways to get some traffic is to buy it. Google AdWords is one of the better known and largest place for you to throw some money at this traffic issue.
You pay only for actual clicks on your Google ad to your site or affiliate link, but you need to be careful and watch your advertising budget. It can get quite expensive if you end paying for clicks that aren't producing sales. Be sure to track your ads to determine your return on investment for your keywords and search engine.
As a note there are several other places beside Google to buy PPC traffic. Yahoo.com, Amazon.com, MSN.com and dozens of other places provide the option of PPC traffic. They all operate about the same way. You only pay for targeted visitors to your site who have clicked on one of your ads.
BORROW TRAFFIC FROM OTHERS-
Locate those who have mailing lists related to your area and ask them to post an ad in their list in exchange for a link on your site.
If you have your own mailing list, you could propose an ad swap. "I'll run your ad in my list; You run my ad in your list." You might have to offer a commission to the publisher to induce them into running your ad. That way they make a profit on it too.
You can locate these prospective publishers at a good search engine or publications like the Directory of Ezines.com. Be sure to target publishers who readers will be receptive to the type of offer your ad is offering.
If you are selling something to do with internet marketing, your targeted readers should be those interested in marketing on line.
BUILDING YOUR OWN TRAFFIC-
One of my favorite and time-tested ways to promote and market on line is to write and publish original articles. Other newsletter publishers will sometimes reprint my articles and send them out to their readers.
To save a lot of work and aggravation when sending these articles out to publishers and article directories, you may want to consider a distribution service
like iSnare.com . For a nominal charge you can have your articles widely distributed in a very short time. You get what you pay for and this is one service that has proven its worth.
Be sure to include a resource box at the end of your article so that interested readers may follow your link to your site or your affiliate link you are promoting. Ideally your article has prepared the reader and motivated them to be receptive for the type of offer you are making in your resource box.
Write many articles. Publish and distribute lots of articles.
If you will consistently apply there three traffic tactics discussed above, You will benefit from it with lots of traffic and permanent links (more or less) to your site which can benefit you for years to come.
