These are some of the most powerful and low cost ways to generate traffic to your website.

1. Offer free reports and content. Giving away some freebies and including your website URL in those freebies is an effective and low cost way of building traffic to your website. You can write some useful short reports with your website link in them and offer those reports for free on a website where you ask visitors to leave their email address before they download the free reports or articles. This means you can give away the report with your URL and also build a list.

As you probably know, having traffic is very important for your website if you want to successfully earn money online. You can drive traffic to your website using a wide range of tools.

Among all the different ways of driving traffic to your website, writing and submitting articles remains the most powerful tool for increasing your web site traffic and boost your sales and online profits.

So why is writing and submitting articles so powerful in driving traffic to your website?

1. Articles help you become an expert in your niche. By writing high quality and informative articles in your niche, you become an expert. You also build trust and confidence in your prospects. As an expert, customers will feel confident to buy from you and this will increase your sales and online business profits.

2. Articles are an affordable way of driving traffic to your website. You can write your own articles or you can hire a ghostwriter to write some articles for you, and this is not very expensive. You can then submit your articles to many directories. There are some tools that you can use to automatically submit your articles to many directories, and this increases the number of links pointing back to your website.

3. Articles are viral and powerful in driving traffic to your website. At the bottom of all your articles, you have a resource box with your website URL.

Scam Watch

Okay. I am soooo tired of seeing Email Processing System postings, get paid to do nothing, etc. I also am tired of seeing people with a bunch of cash laid out all over their computer, their floor, their bed, their lap, etc. People please do not fall for this. Anyone can go to the bank, cash their paycheck, spread it out and take a picture.

Seriously it really angers me when I see how many scams there are out there. Paid Social Network Jobs is another one I have started to block from my news feed. Do you really think that a company is going to pay you $125 to answer a one question survey? If it was that easy, EVERYBODY would be doing it! It just makes me so mad that there are so many people taking advantage of others that just aren’t as internet savvy as others or people who are really in desperate need of money.

I look on my Facebook Groups every day, sometimes several times a day, and most of what I see are these people saying give me $1 and you will make $1 million. Come on!  And also there are so many people falling for it. That is what is so crazy to me.

My dad is a retired FBI agent and he taught all of us (I have three brothers) that there are people out there that will want to take advantage of you and people that just aren’t trustworthy. I have followed this advice my entire life and it makes me sad to see people being taken advantage of.

There are no links in this post as I just wanted to warn you to BE CAREFUL! Always Google whatever program you are thinking of joining to find out if there are any reviews, comments, sites, etc. that are telling you the ins and outs of it. Of course there will be sites that will give a favorable review because they are trying to earn a commission. There is nothing wrong with affiliate marketing, hell I do it myself, but there is something wrong when someone hasn’t even used the program and is trying to get you to purchase a complete waste of time.

In conclusion, please, please do your research, don’t believe everything you see or read on the internet and always know if it’s too good to be true, IT IS! 🙂

How To Use Viral Marketing To Build Traffic To Your Website

Viral marketing is one of the most effective ways of driving traffic to your website with little effort on your part. With viral marketing, you can send your marketing message to selected recipients who then pass on that message to others. Viral marketing is easy and affordable, so anyone can do it.

If you have high quality products, your marketing message will be passed on to many people. Internet marketers want to pass on high quality products or services to their own lists. So the more appealing your products are, the quicker your marketing message will get spread all over the internet, and this will generate huge volumes of traffic to your website.

You can carry out your viral marketing campaign by creating e-books, reports or articles and distribute them to targeted recipients, giving them for free. Any internet marketer can do this; since it simply involves creating the product, pass it on and let other people pass it on further for you.

Examples of how you can do viral marketing are as follows:

  • Offer high quality products that spread your marketing message. Write well-researched reports and e-books on your niche and add your URL on these reports. Many people like getting free reports and e-books. These e-books will provide very powerful information on your topic, and people who read them will visit your website. Further distribution of your reports and e-book will result in more traffic to your website as well as increased awareness of your business or brand.
  • You can also offer a free service or product on your web site that spreads your message to an increasing number of people who hear about it. Send out news releases concerning the free service or product available on your site. This in turn will generate huge volumes of traffic to your website.
  • Setting up an affiliate program that encourages links to your products can also be helpful. If you can afford it, provide attractive financial incentive for other sites to pass on your marketing message. You can also install a ‘Recommend it” referral system on your website so that other internet marketers will pass on your website address to their lists. By having your own affiliates promoting your website, you drive a lot of traffic to your website.
  • Use traffic exchange programs where you exchange website links with other internet marketers. When you add your website link to another site, some people may be interested in it, and they may bookmark it or pass it on to other people who may be interested in your niche.
  • Write good quality articles and encourage other webmasters to post them for free as content on their sites. If you’re an expert in a niche, write an article on that niche and give it away for free to complementary sites to post on their site as free content, so long as the article contains links to your site. Write high quality articles and distribute them online for free with reprinting rights. More directories, newsletters and e-zines will publish your article with your resource box and URL. With little effort, your URL will be distributed all over the internet, and this will lead to a huge flow of traffic to your website.

Use the power of viral marketing to spread your marketing message all over the internet and drive high volumes of traffic to your website.

6 Ways To Drive Targeted Traffic To Your Website

Hi all!

Although it is important to generate high volumes of traffic to a website, it is important for this traffic to be targeted such that the people who visit your website are likely to buy the services and products you offer on your website.

Since promoting your website can take some effort and money, you don’t want to just anyone to visit your site. Instead, you only want people who would be interested in what you have to offer.

This shows how you can build a steady stream of visitors to your website who are targeted and likely to bring you sales.

1. Know your target customers and make sure that all your advertising campaigns are targeted at these customers. This means that you must use all the necessary keywords which define your potential customers in all your advertising campaigns. If you are using Google Adwords, your advert must specify the targeted customers. If you are writing articles as a way of promoting your website, your articles must contain the keywords for your niche.

2. List your website with top search engines and directories in categories that suit your niche. If your website is about selling products or services that relate to making money online for example, get your website listed under this category on relevant websites. This means that people who are looking for this specific information that relate to your website will easily find your website.

3. Advertise your website in relevant forums and online groups. The more you know about your potential customers, the better you will know where to find them. This means you can go to the relevant forums or online groups where your customers are and you can advertise your website there through having your website URL in your signature when you make posts in these forums. People in forums that related to your niche are targeted customers who have high potential to buy from your website.

4. Write articles that are rich with your keywords. Your articles get picked up and published by many websites, e-zines and directories. You can therefore quickly have thousands of back links pointing to your website. It is therefore important that all your articles have several of your keywords so that when people type these keywords on search engines while looking for information, your website comes up and ranks high on these search engines. This drives targeted traffic to your website.

5. Use your own e-zine and other related e-zines to advertise your website. By publishing your own e-zine, you already have many prospects who are interested in what you have to offer. Make sure that your e-zine has new content and gives away some free report or e-books to your subscribers. Make sure that your website URL is added in all your e-zine publications. Identify other e-zines with a readership that matches your target niche market and advertise your website in these e-zines.

6. Research and look for other web sites where your target customers visit and inquire about advertising your website on these websites.

The six tools outlined above can help you generate targeted traffic to your website. If you want to increase your conversion rate and boost your sales, you need to have targeted visitors on your website.

As always if you have any comments or questions please don’t hesitate to ask. 🙂

I have been Wowed by Traffic Monsoon

I signed up for Traffic Monsoon about two weeks ago just to see what it was all about. I must say I am impressed! I bought my first ad-pack and then I was fortunate to be able to buy another a few days ago. Not only am I earning on the two ad-packs I have but I am getting tons of traffic to my links I set up in my account! I have even received some sign ups and some sales.

I am always leery about these rev sharing sites but from what I have read in the Facebook Group and what I have seen in my own account, this is a winner! Below is a screen shot of my account as of today, September 10th, 2015 at 11:40 am Central Time.

TM09102015

 

I have done nothing but purchase two ad-packs and use them to send traffic to my sites. My packs will mature at 55 days and I should be able to replace them with my earnings and then I’ll add another one every month until I can get built up. My goal is to reach $500 per day and then I can just maintain after that.

I am so excited!!

Has anyone out there been involved with Traffic Monsoon for a long time? Any comments or suggestions?

If you would like more information or would like to try it out for yourself, Click Here and please let me know if you do. I will be there with you every step of the way!

I will also post another update of earnings when it comes time to either purchase an additional pack or when I can purchase with my earnings.

Thanks!

Your objectives and goals will guide you in deciding the level of promotion you need to do to advertise your website and build traffic to it.

2. Establish your advertising budget. This is a very important step. There are many ways of driving traffic to your website; some are affordable while some are expensive. You need to decide what your budget is and therefore what tools you can use to drive traffic to your website.

3. Invest in the necessary tools that you need in advertising your website.

PPC can also help you drive targeted traffic to your website. However, you also need to have some marketing strategies that will generate traffic to your website in the long term. Pay per click marketing is normally considered to be the short-term solution for generating targeted traffic and leads fast, but it is also considered to be one of the most expensive ways to advertise your business. Therefore, it is important for you to have other affordable ways of generating traffic to your website which will drive traffic to your site in the long term. Article marketing, blogging and forum participation are some of these less costly ways of generating traffic to your website.

Traffic Monsoon Update

Hello all!

I have an update on the Traffic Monsoon program. So far it is great! I am getting visitors to my sites, my blog, my CPA offers, etc. And…they are signing up and converting! I know there are a lot of traffic exchanges out there  but this one seems to be working the best so far.

I have seen some amazing testimonials about Traffic Monsoon. People are legitimately earning from their ad packs and the Facebook Page is chock full of excited, motivated people. My sponsor has been a huge help in getting me started and understanding the site and what I need to do.

It takes a total of maybe 10 minutes of my time a day and then my plan is to purchase two ad packs every two weeks until I reach the daily amount I want, which is about $400 a day.

This is not a get rich quick program unless you can afford to go all in at one time. If you purchase 100 ad packs you will earn $100 a day until they run out in 55 days. Of course you would have to purchase another 100 in order to keep going. 🙂 There is no way I can afford that, I mean seriously, who can? But, I will work my way up to my goal and then just maintain after that.

The other nice thing about this is along the way you can advertise your business(s) and get quality traffic. I am trying it with a CPA offer and see how it does. Mind you it is a CPA offer that allows incentivized traffic. You have to be careful about that. I will make that the subject of another post. 🙂

If you have Traffic Monsoon and would like to share your experience, please comment below and let us know!

If you would like more information, Click Here and/or email me. I’d be happy to help!
