So your website traffic is as immobile as a boulder on a cliff – it’s about time you draw into your bag of tricks and change your marketing strategy. Most of this centers around the wonderful world of Information Marketing, but there are other markets you can work with. There are many ways to skin a cat, but here are just a few quick tips to jumpstart your web traffic.
Buying hits for your site. Pay for targeted hits to your web site. In other words, this is pay-per-click advertising. This form of advertising entails paying search engines for each time a person clicks on your website link. This is by far one of the quickest ways to get those visitors on your site.
If you don’t have an opt-in email list you have a lot to learn about Internet business, but let’s assume that you do – in it you can send promotional emails and offer informative courses or newsletters to the people on your list. Pay your competition a flat fee to email your promotional offer to their lists. This is a great way to build relationships with your competitors.
You can do what is referred to as a Joint Venture. In many ways, this is like the above tip where you pay your competitors to email your offer out to their email lists, only this time you are paying them a commission for sales.
You can pay another webmaster upfront (a flat fee) so that they can advertise your site by posting your banner ad or website link. You can pay for advertising by offering a commission to your competition or anyone on sales when they put your ad, banner or link on their site.
You can submit your website to search engines with your keywords and website description.
You can submit your link to other websites, and in return, add them to yours.
You can write a free report or course to give away to other websites in your market and allow them to put an affiliate link inside (so they have an incentive to give it away), and give that away for free. Good information travels faster than the speed of light. You’ve heard of viral videos – the above technique is called viral marketing.
This makes it even more important to prioritize content – good content makes people want to spread the word to their family, friends and co-workers. You can also offer affiliate programs so your customers can earn commissions when they refer some one to buy your product.
These are just ten fast tips, but who knows – maybe you have some killer ideas that may work for others!
