Are You Being Killed By a Shortage of Traffic?
Traffic kills… actually a shortage of traffic kills any dreams you have of making money online by affiliate marketing. There are million people surfing the net daily, so the potential for making money is huge… extremely huge. Making money as an affiliate is extremely easy. You advertise some product and get a nice percentage of the sale kicked back to you. Well, in theory that is easy, but unfortunately it is not always so easy like most things in life. The problem is not advertising the product, that is very easy… the problem is getting people to visit is more difficult. Of course there are a lot of options to get traffic to your site, but usually it cost money, making it more difficult to be profitable as an affiliate marketer. Luckily there are a few free options available to help you increase traffic to your site without costing money. Of course these methods do take a bit more time, but in the end it can be worth it.
Some of the best methods is to let other people know about your site and hope they visit you. Here are three of the best, proven methods for improving traffic to your site.
Write Articles and publish to Online Directories
This probably one of the best ways to improve traffic to your site, although I have experienced it is not one of the easiest or fastest ways. Writing articles and publishing them to the different Online Directories take time. Yes, there is people advertising, and claiming, that it is very easy and quick, but how good can the articles be if you churn out 50 a day? Writing a good quality article takes time. And this is maybe the biggest secret: in the long run good articles will improve your web presence more than a lot of quick, badly written ones. Each Online Directory has its own criteria for judging an article before publishing it. Some people write articles and make use of special software to publish their articles to thousands of publishers. I found that submitting to about 5 or 6 high quality online directories is worth far more in the long run. This is probably one of the best ways to build good, solid traffic to your site.
Add Signatures to your Email.
This is so easy it is almost laughable. How many emails do you send out daily? Why not add a short signature to every email you sent out? That way you reach a lot of people easily. This will probably not give you millions of visitors, but still every visitor is good. Just be careful before adding this to the email account of the company you work for… it can land you in hot water. But use your personal email account freely and regularly. If you are able to add your info and link in HTML format the person can simply click the link to reach your website, making things much easier.
Post at forums
Some forums allow you to add URL links in your profile. This is a very good way to place your website out there. Just make sure that the forum's rules allow this since you can be banned on certain forums. Do not post just to advertise though. If your posts are good you will gain the trust of other members on the forum, which will really improve the chances that people will follow your link. So join some forums and get posting.
As you can see it does not take money to improve traffic to your site, but it does take some patience and a little bit of work on your site. There is a few other methods, one of which you will find on my site ;-). So why not visit my site and see another good method for improving traffic to your site for free.
