You and I both know that without traffic, there’s no sale.
There are many ways of generating traffic, but which one actually works?
There are two main ways you can get traffic:
1) Pay for traffic
2) Get traffic for free (more worked involved usually)
However, paying for traffic might not be for everyone, especially if you’re just starting out and on a shoestring budget.
In this email, I’m going to explain 3 ways you can generate traffic, no matter what your offer is.
These traffic methods can be implemented right now, without paying a single cent.
Here it is:
1. Ebook directory traffic. Using this traffic, you basically take an eBook you own or have private label rights to, and submit it to eBook directories.
Here are a few sites you should submit your free eBook:
On these sites, you’ll normally find a link or button to submit your ebook.
You can submit an ebook around any topic – health, marketing, business, pets and more.
Here’s what you wanna make sure you do. Embed your website or affiliate links throughout the eBook where it fits. You could even place your website on the footer of every page of the ebook.
This method can help you generated about 50-100 visitors a day. It works and it’s free.
On to the next method…
2. The “P.S. exchange”. With this one, you seek and approach those who are already collecting a list of subscribers.
You can find out if he/she is building a list by looking through their sites and blog. Do you see an opt-in form anywhere? Is there a lead capture page?
If they were smart marketers, they would be building a list.
Now, what you do is approach these list owners and ask if they would like to exchange a simple 2-3 line “P.S.” including your URL in one of their existing autoresponder sequence messages.
Use a call-to-action P.S. Here’s an example:
P.S. – Unannounced bonus: Download your free copy of the
XYZ special report to discover 3 easy ways to ____________:
Quite simple, but it makes them take action.
In exchange, you do the same. What’s great about this method is that it’s less of a commitment for the list owner. If you were to approach them and ask to put an entire email in their autoresponder sequence, they may hesitate.
You’re probably thinking, this method only works if you, yourself, have a list. You can exchange in other ways. Perhaps you’ll place his/her banner on your blog for the life of the agreement? In the end, it’s a win/win for everyone.
3. Blog commenting with a bang. Blog commenting isn’t new or revolutionary. It’s been a favored method amongst internet marketers alike.
It is a proven method that helps gain new readers to your own site.
However, one of the biggest mistakes made from people who do blog comment is that they are:
a) Not consistent with blogging on the same blog
b) Not delivering any value in their blog comment.
Let me explain the first – Consistency. Whenever you find a blog that gets lots of traffic (obviously you want to only comment on high-traffic, high-engaging blogs), make sure you bookmark it and always come back to comment whenever there’s a new post.
Not only will you become a “regular”, you’ll also gain trust from the owner’s readers because you do post often.
The next part is to deliver value in your comments.
Most people simply leave a comment like “Thanks for sharing your valuable post. I learned a lot”, or something along those lines.
It’s vague. It adds no value to other readers.
Here’s what you do instead. Read the ENTIRE post. Add 1, 2 or 3 other tips in addition to what the blog post author wrote.
For example, if the post is about “My Top 5 Ways That Helped Relieve Back Pain”. In this context, you would add an extra tip or two that works together with what was presented.
I would add something like “One thing you should also try is to ____________.” to the blog comment.
The author and readers of the blog will appreciate your thoughts/suggestions, and in most cases click on your link to find out more about you.
Think of it as planting seeds. You place a comment, it gets approved and other readers will see your comments. Blog posts stay forever unless the owner shuts the site down.
What you want to do is offer as much value to the community. Think of it as a place where you’re all helping each other. That’s pretty much what it is in the end.
In addition, you want to make sure the blogs you’re commenting on are directly related to your niche.
Aim to blog comment about 5-10 times a day or if that’s too much, 20-30 times a week.
To maximize the traffic you generate, make sure you direct your visitors to your lead capture page. That way, you’ll build your list so then you can follow-up on them anytime.
When it comes to generating free traffic to your website, it’s not that hard.
With anything new you learn, it’s always good to take action while your mind is still fresh.
Not only should you take action, it’s also just as important to stay consistent and persistent with your efforts.
