Free Network Marketing Information-3 Ways to Generate Traffic to Your Site

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.

Free Network Marketing Information-Get Endless MLM Referrals

Today's free network marketing information post hails from Tom, Big Al, Schreiter's "Big Al Report." The tip that he offers is so easy that ANYBODY can do it, even the shyest person!

Embarrassing, but you have to try.


A few days ago at dinner I was demonstrating how easy it was to get referrals. I pointed out that we would want to get some "blue" personalities, as they would lead us to more prospects quickly.

How do you find "blue" personalities?

Easy.

Just ask, "Who do you know that is a great storyteller?"

"Blue" personalities were made for network marketing. They love to talk, love to tell stories, and they talk to everyone.

So the busboy comes in to clean up the dishes and I say:

"Do you know somebody who is a good storyteller?"

And the busboy said one word, "No."

Okay, it doesn't work all the time. Later on I found out that he didn't understand English. He understood Chinese.

Another good reason to eat at Mexican restaurants.

If you don't know about the "Color" personalities, it is really very easy. Take this no-cost mini course by going to:

Free Network Marketing Information-Internet Marketing and MLM Leads

NO matter what business you are trying to build online whether it be mlm, a direct sales business, affiliate marketing, etc. , you will need sales leads if you are ever going to make sales, and sales leads are what you are trying to generate if you are marketing on the internet. In order to survive, any web site needs a steady flow of qualified leads. Today's free network marketing information tip is about how to use internet marketing strategies to get more qualified leads.

The aim of any lead generation campaign is to build your mailing list. Internet marketers often say "the money is in the list", which is totally true. A list of responsive buying customers that trust you is worth its weight in gold!

While spam filtering has lessened the impact of email marketing, it’s still a viable means to getting your sales messages out there. In theory, email is marketing is free, although of course its costs you in terms of your time. The theory behind email marketing is that by using a "hook" such as a free product or some other incentive, you can "funnel" interested parties onto specific products and services.

When you consider generating leads via an email campaign there are basically three avenues you can explore: email signatures, joint ventures and safe lists. One word of warning though, and that is avoid spam at all cost, one spam complaint can seriously damage your online business. You should familiarize yourself with the laws concerning spam, and at the very least ensure you include a un-subscription link in ALL your marketing emails. Due to spam, it is advisable that you avoid buying leads, no matter how reputable the company, buying leads can easily lead to a spam complaint, you have been warned!

In its simplest form, email marketing is a matter of putting a signature in all your emails that contains a link to your main product.

If you are looking to vastly increase your list quickly then a joint venture (JV) may well be the key you need. In its simplest form, in a JV you supply the product and a fellow marketer supplies the leads and you share the profits. Hopefully, you will then get the emails of your fellow marketer’s customers, so you can then mail them with further offers.

When considering a joint venture there are many considerations you have to think about, but the main one, before you consider contacting anyone about mailing to their list, is "what's in it for THEM", not "what's in it for me". NEVER write to a fellow marketer unless you can offer them something of value in return for their help, and that is not necessarily just a share of the profits, be inventive!

Finally you have safe lists. A safe list is a list of people that have agreed to receive marketing emails in return for being able to send their own marketing email. The value of this form of marketing has never been that good. After all you are trying to sell to people who are only interested in selling to you!

You can use pay per click advertising such as overture or Goggle adwords to advertise your site and draw in interested leads.

One other highly effective way of generating interested leads is posting in forums that are related to your area of business. Include a link to your site in your signature and people interested in your sphere of business will often click it if your forum post was interesting.

Three other popular sales lead generation techniques are submitting articles to ezine publishers and article directories, press releases and testimonials for products in your target market.

No matter what lead generation technique you employ you will need a way to capture your leads email address when they arrive at your site.

The traditional method has been to use a pop up or pop under which contains some incentive to get someone to sign up. With the invention of pop up stoppers their effectiveness has dwindled and therefore unstoppable pop ups (also know as hover ads or slide in ads) have evolved. This new generation of pop ups are built into your webpage and as such cannot be stopped. Simply do a search on Goggle for "unstoppable pop up" and you are sure to find a software solution to produce these types of pop ups for you.

The other alternative is to use what is called a "name squeeze page".

In essence a name squeeze page is a web page whose sole purpose is to capture an email address.

They generally contain a small amount of information about the product or service you are selling as a "teaser" for the reader and will contain a sign up form, with a message like "to find out more simply fill in the form to be immediately directed to further details on this amazing product".

A name squeeze page not only helps build your list, this information can also be used with certain software to help personalize your site for your visitor, a technique that has been shown to increase sales. Again, simply do a search for name squeeze page generators.

No matter how you generate sales leads there is one thing always to bear in mind, and that is to be effective your leads must be in your targeted market. If, for example, you are selling internet marketing products, then it's no use advertising on a site that is all about scuba diving!

When you start to build your online business, ensure you include a well thought out sales lead generation strategy from the beginning. Do not make it an afterthought; this should be in place from the very beginning if you want your business to be a success. Use these free networking marketing information tips today!
