Chapter 1: Introduction
The Internet – The Most Inexpensive Business In The World!
Ever thought about starting a business only to abandon the idea because of a lack of finances? Well, your penny-saving days have come to an end thanks to the Internet’s way of getting customers!
Welcome To “Free And Low Cost Ways To
Huge Web Traffic!”
In this book, you will learn about 5 essential techniques that you can use to greatly boost your website’s traffic without spending your life savings on expensive ‘traffic generation’ software or even paid traffic!
Yes, you don’t need to invest your life savings in Google AdWords or pay through your nose for private advertising space on high traffic blogs.
These techniques are so powerful that it will help you create so much traffic; you will think you are in Internet marketing heaven!
So why do these techniques work? Here’s the reason why:
Of course, I am not implying that all paid traffic is bad. Both free and paid traffic has its place in the grand scheme of things, but it is always better to start off with free traffic and monetize it FIRST.
And once you’ve mastered the art of monetizing free traffic, does that mean that you will do away with paid traffic?
Of course NOT!
If you are already making $1,000 on autopilot you wouldn’t mind investing $500 of your monthly residual income into paid traffic to pocket yourself another $1,000 monthly now would you?
The key is for anyone who is just starting out to ‘plant their seeds’ all over the Internet’s soil. You can pick and choose which of your ‘plants’ grow faster and bear fruit and spend more time nurturing it.
It sure beats setting up a shop downtown, sitting there all day waiting for customers to arrive. So let’s tap into the power of the fastest and most inexpensive business in the world right now!
Chapter 2: Viral Marketing Fever!
Why Viral Marketing Is Extremely Powerful
Ever had Chicken Pox? It all starts from one member of the family getting infected by a friend or a relative. He brings the virus home and pretty soon the entire family gets hit by chicken pox… but not before the ‘carrier’ passes it to another friend’s family!
This is what viral marketing is like – when you have the necessary tools to drive traffic to your website, your profits will be unstoppable!
Here are a few key components you will need to accomplish this feat:
Finding The Right ‘Carrier’
If you want to kick start your viral marketing campaign you will need to find a suitable ‘carrier’ for your ‘viruses’.
By having the right carrier, you will be able to launch your campaign as swiftly as possible because it will take a while before the viral effect starts to kick in.
A suitable carrier would be an E-product that will easily fall into the hands of many readers automatically and it must have a targeted audience (related to that particular niche) who will find your ad useful.
However, you must choose the right kind of carrier. This carrier must either have a lot of credibility or an attraction factor that will appeal to the target audience or the resellers (other carriers).
An example of an effective carrier is that the E-product must have an appealing E-cover that will capture the attention of your prospects.
You must give them a reason to do the viral marketing work for you without you doing it yourself. The key is to set it up correctly the first time (choosing the best product to place your ad, writing a compelling advertisement and choosing the best placements).
Then, when your campaign launches, you won’t need to do anything more other than watch the traffic flow in!
Spreading The Love
Now that you have found your ‘carrier’, 95% of the work will be done by your ‘sales force’ while you sit back and watch them spread the love.
They will promote the carriers for their own profit or benefit, while your ads and your links are sitting cozily in their books.
Here are a few examples of how the viral effect works out in the form of your E-products:
You can create as many viral campaigns as you can for your website. Once they are all setup, all you need to do is tweak your sales pages or landing pages to maximize your profits.
Chapter 3: Fire Sale Contributions
A Great Source for Paid Leads
What better way to get highly targeted traffic other than being a contributor for a fire sale!
If you don’t know what a fire sale is, it is a special type of sale with three important characteristics:
So what does that got to do with getting paid leads?
The nature of Fire Sales requires the merchant to sell tons of valuable products for a rock bottom price. Therefore, they would want to provide as much value for the prospects as possible in order to guarantee a sale.
In order to maximize the value, the merchant either:
If you know about a fire sale going on, what you can do is to ASK the merchant if you can add your own product as a bonus. Normally, they will allow the buyers to download YOUR product by directing them to YOUR landing page!
This is pulled off within a limited time frame so the scarcity factor involved. Paid leads are also very valuable because they are highly targeted traffic. The fact that they are willing to pay money to buy Internet marketing products shows that they are serious about making money online.
No Hard Selling Required!
One of the best things about being a contributor for fire sales is the fact that you do not need to exert additional effort in collecting paid leads.
Firstly, because people are already pre-SOLD on the idea that your product is of value and they will gladly opt-in to download your product.
You don’t need to do a lot of ‘convincing’ either on your landing page or lead-capture form. All you need to do is write a simple, “Download here, exclusively for the subscribers of the Fire Sale!” and it will suffice!
Furthermore, there is always a theme involved with every Fire Sale. A good theme ensures that the subscribers are all willing to help you out and buy your product (if they are not sold on the idea of the product’s value, at the very least, they will support your REASON for holding the fire sale and buy from you).
There was one highly successful Fire Sale executed during the year of 2007 called Send Us To U.S.
The theme was to send 3 desperate guys from Malaysia to the U.S. by funding their trip through the fire sale.
This garnered a lot of support all around the Internet community and people everywhere are contributing products and buying their package – the traffic they got is huge and if you happened to be a contributor to their fire sale, imagine the number of people downloading your product by opting in at your landing page!
Chapter 4: Blog Barrage
Find A High Traffic Blog
How does one maximize from a high traffic blog when that blog doesn’t belong to you or when your own blog has little traffic to begin with? How does one cope when he is new to Internet marketing?
Well, one of the fastest ways to get started out is to search for blogs that are constantly looking for content from contributors like the blog on the previous page.
Contribute Relevant Content
Choose a blog that talks about Internet marketing and making money online. It provides targeted traffic for anyone who wants to learn about Internet marketing.
If you want to divert traffic from blogs like these, what you can do is to contribute your own blog posts as a contributor.
Talk about topics that are relevant to their blog as well as your own. This is a good way to capture the reader’s attention.
You will reap the following benefits:
Contribute Relevant Content
As mentioned above regarding credibility, there is one section that you must take note of because it is really valuable.
Beneath every article that you contribute, there is a section called the author’s bio. This bio books allows you to ‘sell’ yourself and brand yourself as an expert in whatever niche that you are in.
A sample bio looks something like this:
Article ©2008 all rights reserved. Alex Major is a product creation expert, copywriter and E-consultant. He has created HUNDREDS of E-products online within a span of 8 years and has a strong passion for writing. For a dose of his writings & products, check out his website at http://www.nicheempires.com.
Use this bio box wisely and you can be sure to drive tons of traffic to your website!
Chapter 5: Article Directories
Find A Relevant Topic
Have you read the newspaper only to get the feeling that the very article that you are reading is already published all over the Internet for a long time?
Those articles are probably taken from article directories from the Internet, and yet it is a viable source for information on any niche!
If you want to drive tons of traffic to your website using a free or low cost way, then article directory submissions are the to go!
Why article marketing is so lucrative is because of the following reasons:
Write an article about product or something related to your website. (If you can’t write, don’t worry… you can pay someone as low as $5 to get a quality article written for you).
Once your article is complete, do a search on Google for the search term – “article directory”.
You will find a list of article directories.
Choose one of them and register as an author or an article writer and contribute your article to the directory. It might take a few days or even a week to get an article approved, so make sure you are patient enough to wait.
Once your article is approved, it will remain on the ‘front page’ of that particular niche for a couple of days before it is ‘pushed down’ by newer article submissions.
Rinse And Repeat
One of the advantages of article directory submissions is that you can take the same article and author bio and re-use them over and over again.
What you can do is to ‘cut-and-paste’ the article and post the article to a list of article directories (when in doubt – use Google).
Occasionally, you may find the process too tedious; you can outsource it to someone else for a low price of $27-37 dollars to submit that article for you to a few hundred directories.
If your article is well written, employing this outsourcing method will send a HUGE surge of traffic to your website so you must be prepared. This will not last forever because the articles do not remain on the top page all the time.
Make sure that you are not too ‘sales pitchy’ about your product or your website because some article directories are particular about the quality of the articles. They are after all, looking for quality content, not another sales letter.
Chapter 6: Content Membership Contribution
Another Source Of Massive Traffic
If you have your very own E-product, you can easily submit your product to a high-traffic membership site that provides quality content.
The concept is also similar to blog and article contributors except that it takes it up a notch to E-book creation.
The nature of these content membership sites requires new content to be added in from time to time.
What better way to get your own product in front of the eyes of thousands of resellers and Internet marketers who can’t wait to sell YOUR product for their own profits (assuming that your product has resell rights to it of course).
The Members Are Your Resellers
If your E-product has master resell rights or unrestricted private label rights, you can be sure that your products will be all over the Internet in no time.
Resellers are always looking for products with a complete sales letter to it. If you have drafted out a sales letter that converts well, you can be sure that a lot of resellers will ‘cut-and-paste’ your sales letter and your E-book and sell it to their mailing list.
The same goes for certain PLR products as well.
The most important thing for you to remember is this – your books must constantly lead the readers to your websites.
Your links must be placed strategically in the E-books and as your E-books are duplicated all over the Internet, you can be sure to drive plenty of new visitors to your website – even if they are not in your circle of influence!
Chapter 8: Flooding Your Site With Forum Traffic
A signature on the forum is something like a P.S. at the bottom of a forum post and it used as an advertisement for any website you are promoting.
The signature is automatically inserted into some emails but it works very well in high traffic forums as well.
This is one of the best sources for free traffic that you can utilize. Here’s how:
Write a one-liner description about yourself and place the URL of your site right beneath it.
e.g. Jimmy Sloth – Internet marketer and free traffic expert.
The Right Niche
One of the best ways to search for the right niche is to do a simple search on Google.
Find the niche you are targeting and enter the keyword followed by the word ‘forum’.
(For example: if you are looking for visitors to check out your cooking website, do a search for the word cooking forum).
You will see a list of forums that you can tap into. Find the topic that everyone is talking about or asking a lot of questions.
These people are your gold mine! The reason why they keep asking these questions is because answers have yet to surface and this will be your chance to show them what your website has to offer!
Sign up as a forum member and start contributing as a regular. After awhile people will start noticing you and they will start replying to your messages. Some of them will click on your link and it will lead them to your website.
Certain forums also allow forum members to post their offers on the forum as well.
Chapter 7: Summary
Getting Something Valuable For Free
The best thing about free traffic is that you don’t have to worry about failing. After all, the worst thing that can happen is that you don’t get any traffic and you’ve wasted some time.
But for most of the examples mentioned above, you will still have your E-products with you!
You still have your articles, blog posts, E-books that you can reuse for another website!
Here is a recap of what we’ve learnt:
Make sure you take action and get started immediately!
