I find traffic to be one of the most important skills that any marketer should learn to have. It doesn’t matter what business model you choose to do online, if you can’t get traffic you’re doomed to failure. So let me share with you 3 methods that I like to use over and over again to get new subscribers…
Method #1 – Forum Marketing
This is straight forward and so easy to do. A good place to start is in the Warrior Forum. Start by posting useful replies in other threads. You don’t have to be an expert at any particular subject, just share your opinions and honesty with others. When you create an account you’ll get a chance to add your own signature and link. Add something like “Struggling To Make Money Online? Download This eBook For FREE – http://www…”, or “Still Paying For Internet Marketing Training? Why Not Get Them For FREE – http://www….” and socialize with others.
The threads at the top get the most views and older threads get pushed down the page so it’s worth to posting every now and again to keep the traffic flow going. The more you get involved, the more your posts will show up along with your signature link. Don’t spam as it will clearly show and get you banned. Once you’ve made several replies, you’ll be able to start a new thread of your own and direct people to your great free resource (squeeze page)!
Method #2 – Email Signature
Since you’ve already got your own forum signature, why not copy that into your email signature? Every time you email someone, friends, colleagues, social network sites and so on, you’ll have a link right after your email which will spark some curiosity. It doesn’t take long to add and can continue to bring in new subscribers even when you’ve long forgotten about it!
Method #3 – Blog Post Comments
Again this is really easy to do. Just like forum marketing, you simply reply to a blog post related to your subject.
Most blogs allow you to leave a URL, so read the blog post, you can make an intelligent comment. A simple search for ‘make money blog’ on Google will bring back the most popular blogs – ones which get a lot of traffic and ones you should be socializing and making comments in!
These are some of the easier traffic methods to apply yet are still overlooked by many marketers. You want to be where all the social activity is happening and you want to be in forums related to your niche. From there you can interact, help others and leave a link back to your website or squeeze page. This is the essence of getting traffic.
