Online Traffic Tactics For Network Marketing
I am sure you have heard that network marketing is a numbers game. So the more people you introduce to your opportunity the more money you will make. Try these traffic tactics to start generating a steady stream of traffic to your site.
Write and Distribute Articles, Ebooks and Reports
Information is the one thing that Internet users are all interested in. So use this to promote your business by creating high quality content and allowing others to reprint it for you. A successful way to do this is to distribute a special report or brandable ebook, meaning that a website or list owner can change it to include a reference to their website. It doesn’t mean that it looks like they are the publisher, only a way for them to include information on where the ebook was downloaded from and (if applicable) to include their affiliate link for your products and services.
Join and participate in Forums, Newsgroups and Mailing Lists
As there are hundreds of forums online you can find one for almost any topic imaginable. Many allow you to include a signature line that will be attached to every message, thus providing an opportunity for you to advertise your site. If you visit these forums, post thoughtful questions and offer your expertise then your signature will be viewed by others and will bring you free, targeted traffic. Obviously how much traffic you get depends on how often you post and whether your signature makes people want to visit your site. Use an ad you have had success with elsewhere as your signature.
Join Networking Sites to Build your Personal Network
These sites are designed to make it easy for people to meet others in their industry and to advertise their products and service. They are similar to offline networking events where lots of people come together for the sole purpose of meeting people and online networking sites work the same way.
Make use of Traffic Exchanges and Classified Sites
Some traffic exchanges and classified ad sites and have got a bad reputation but they really do work if you know how to use them. By promoting a product or service that advertisers can benefit from then they are a great place to get traffic. Whilst not very many consumers visit these types of advertising sites, many website owners do in order to make sure their ad appears on the site. In so doing they can’t help but notice other ads and if one catches their attention you’re likely to get a visitor.
Consider running a Contest
Most people love the prospect of winning something and that is why a contest can be a great traffic generator. Choosing a prize that will attract people from your target audience is the key. For example if you make the grand prize a new laptop you will get entries from everyone who would like to win a new laptop (which is basically every computer user in the world!). So get more targeted traffic by choosing something that your target audience is interested in but wouldn’t mean much to other people. Start promoting your contest by doing a search in Google for “Contest Directories” and you’ll find lots of places to list your contest for free.
On all outgoing emails include a Powerful Signature
Whenever you send an email you have the potential to get a visitor to your site by simply creating a “signature” that is automatically added to every outgoing message. In the signature briefly explain what you do and add your slogan and hyperlink it to your site. You don’t have to think about it again once it is set-up.
Use Newsletter Classified Ads
Make use of the many newsletter publishers who give classified ads to new subscribers. Whilst these don’t typically bring a huge response they can generate some traffic if you offer something with a high perceived value but low price tag. You can also use them to test new ads to see which ones get the best response. When you find a winner use it in a PPC campaign, run it as a top sponsor newsletter ad, use it as your forum signature and even make it your new email signature.
There are many more online marketing methods that you can use, but if you make use of these traffic tactics on a consistent basis you will start playing the numbers game and drive targeted traffic to your network marketing site.
