Internet Marketing & Getting Site Traffic | What Your Not Being Told
Finally Some Common Sense On Getting Website Traffic
It is by now no surprise that people are making a pretty good living marketing products and information on the Internet. What isn’t being talk about enough
is how to market correctly.
Sure you can find 100′s of people selling some kind of training or online marketing course.
You can pay some hot shot SEO Geek with the hopes your getting your monies worth. But I bet that you are still left scratching your head wondering why you haven’t earned the type of income these courses lead you to believe.
Well I am here to tell you why.
- They tend to only tell you only half truths or spoon feed you what you need to do to get traffic to your website.
- They’re telling you all you have to do is write a couple of articles and submit then to
article directories or Web 2.0 social media site without explaining how to setup and link these
sites up correctly.
- They tell you how much they have made by showing you a bunch of screen images
of their Paypal or Clickbank or whatever bank accounts. But leave out how they got the sales
in the first place.
Look there are many great ways to make sales and earn an income online. I personal like affiliate
products. As they are already created and in most cases have marketing tools available.
So how do you get sales?
First go and find a Affiliate program to join. Like Amazon, Clickbank, Paydotcom
Set up a page or post on a simple blog about that product and write a review or search for
others that have already written about it. Then come up with your own take and post it to your site
with a link back to the affiliate offer. Another great thing about selling affiliate product is once you get someone to click through, on your affiliate link. The affiliate sales page is designed to close the prospect and make the sale. Your job is to just figure out how to get them to that sales page through your link.
Now the kicker. How do you get people to find your page, post and affiliate link?
Simple, you need a proving marketing system and you need to stick to it. PERIOD!!!
This is where most everyone get’s it wrong, time and time again. It took me forever to
get this myself. Because I was so busy chasing after even shinny little object that these online marketing guy’s were throwing at me.
Just find a system or method that is getting you traffic to your website post or offers.
Once you see that there is traffic. Start building backlinks to that URL.
If your getting traffic but no sales. Then change the offer.
If you don’t know how to get traffic. Then just try one of the oldest but most effective ways for get website traffic…
Article Marketing (Done Correctly Of Course)!!!
Sign up to as many article submission sites as you can or outsource it at fiverr.com
Register to couple of dozen Social Media Web 2.0 sites like wordpress.com and squidoo.com There are hundreds of these types of sites that allow you to post content or start a free blog, so use them.
Now the big Secret to all this. You might even say, Hey Mike “everyone is already using these types of sites, this isn’t anything new. Yes and No!
True, just about every online marketing course suggest some kind of variation of this. But what they fail to say is. How to correctly build backlinks to these sites and what sites to link to from these Web 2.0 properties.
See everyone is setting up these social media sites. Submitting articles with links that are all pointing back to their own blogs or post, but very few are building back-links to there backlinks.
Yes you do need to be setting up these sites with links pointing back to your posts and offers. But the secret sauce is, you need to be setting up more of these sites with links, but now with links just pointing back to your Web 2.0 Properties. (Not all your Social Media Sites Linking Back To Your Main Post or Offers.)
Just think of It like this; Building back-links to your back-links!
Now for a Method. You just need to use at least one of these to start with and add more as you progress.
Here are just a few places to use for building backlinks:
RSS FEED Submissions
Article Networks ( This is where you submit your article(s) to blog networks and other people in turn post them on their blogs with your link(s) you put in your articles, which point back to whatever it is you trying to link to.
Website Directory Submissions (This still works great)
Social Bookmarking and Social News Sites. like stumbleupon and Digg.
Don’t confuse this with what I call “social spamming”.
There is a correct way to use Social Media Sites.
Just think of it like one big party and you’re there to share as well as listen.
Write a few articles or have some one do it for you again at Fiverr and Post it on Web 2.0 sites.
Just to let you know I submit one article to someone on Fiverr and just tell them which keyword phrases I am targeting and to leave it in the title and in the article body and for a measly 5 bucks. They Spin 250 unique articles for me from just that one article, You do need to think a bit outside of the box on this one. That is how I found someone to create massive amounts of articles for me.
So there you have it. Free and to the point. Now sure there is tons of other thing that you can be doing like on-site and off-site SEO and on and on for that matter, but hey like I always tell myself; just keep it simply st@&#? any just apply one of these methods. Remember it’s about how you setup, structure and build your backlinks that is the real secret that works for me and many many others for building backlinks and getting website traffic.
