4 Easy Ways To Get Free Traffic To Your Website
There are one million and one ways to get free targeted traffic. I’m just going to touch the basics here. There are so many free manuals about getting traffic, that it would be a waste of time to spend too much effort on this subject.
If you join forums that have to do with the subject of your product, you can drive traffic to your squeeze page. For instance, if your squeeze page is offering a free Internet Marketing report, join a few Internet Marketing forums and start making helpful posts.
Eventually, you’ll be able to add a link to your squeeze page in your forum signature. If your posts are helpful and you are an honest member of the forum, people might see your signature link and visit your squeeze page. The best part about this is that they are completely targeted, because they come from a forum that is related to your product.
Finding relevant blogs and commenting on the blog posts is another great way to drive free traffic. All you need to do is jump onto Google and search for your topic plus the word “blog”. Google will basically automatically return the most popular and powerful blogs.
Go through and read a few of the posts and leave a few useful comments that add to the conversation. When you write a comment, most blogs will allow you to give your name and a link to your website – make sure that you enter your squeeze page as your website URL. So, when your comment shows up, your name will be a link to your squeeze page.
If your comment is helpful or thought provoking, people might click on it and visit your squeeze page. Once again, since they’re coming from a blog related to the topic of your squeeze page, they are highly targeted.
This is a method where you write short informational articles of about 500 words on the topic of your squeeze page. You will then submit them to article directories around the Internet.
These article directories will allow you to leave a link back to your website at the bottom of your article. When people read these articles, if they find the information helpful or interesting, they might click the link at the bottom. As long as you point the link back to your squeeze page, this traffic will be highly targeted and free. Article marketing isn’t quite as effective as it used to be a few years ago, but it still works – just make sure you submit to the most popular directories such as Ezinearticles.
A safe list is a collection of email addresses of people that have agreed to receive marketing email messages from other members. In turn, they are allowed to mail other members on the list as well.
A safe list can be very useful because you don’t have to spend time building up a targeted list of e-mail addresses. You can just join a safe list and send out your advertising message. The best part is that it won’t be considered SPAM because people have agreed to receive these messages.
However, the effectiveness of safe lists can certainly be argued. Members of safe list services receive thousands of e-mail messages, so it’s hard to say how many they actually take a good hard look at.
