There are lots of ways to generate traffic to your site. Here is an overview of some of the most powerful methods. The best strategy is to use as many of these methods as possible.
Remember the key is not just to get thousands of people to your site, but to get thousands of people who are actually looking for what you are providing on the site. People who are willing to take out their credit card and buy something, so that you actually get paid.
Getting links from other sites - This is a great way to get visitors to your site. And, in some cases you can get links that don't cost you anything. once you have the link set up to your site, then you will have a steady stream of visitors that you don't even have to pay for. View more info on getting links.
Pay Per Click search engines - This is probably the quickest way to get hits to your site. And the hits will be people that are specifically looking for your product. The only problem with this method is that it costs money for each visitor. For more information on pay per click search engines click here.
Ezine Marketing - Ezines are another great way to get qualified hits. Usually this involves putting a paid advertisement in the ezine, however it is also possible to get free publicity for your site by writing articles for Ezines. View more more information on ezine marketing.
Bulk Email Marketing - You should not and cannot send unsolicited emails (or spam emails) to millions of recipients. It's illegal, and it doesn't work. However you can get great hits from targeted bulk emails.
Get to the top of the search engines - If you can get a top 10 listing with the free listings in search engines, you can get heaps of traffic this way. Click here for more info on how to get top 10 listings with the search engines.
Marketing in newsgroups and forums - this is not a great method for promoting your product ... and if you do it you must be professional in your approach. Spamming newsgroups does not work, and will get you banned. However if you have no money it might be a way to start. For more information on newsgroups click here.
Other methods I don't recommend:
Guaranteed Hits - there are a number of sites selling you 'guaranteed hits'. What this usually means is pop-ups on other people's sites. You site will come up as a pop-up or pop-under when they visit the other site. The problem with 'guaranteed hits' is that they are also usually guaranteed to be very poor quality. Most people will close your site window immediately and will not take any notice of your site at all. You can get them pretty cheap however, and pop-ups can work for some products. If you do use this method, make absolutely sure that you track very carefully to find out how many sales you actually get from these 'hits'.
Off-line advertising - large companies may be able to afford to advertise their site off-line, but for the little guy it is usually very expensive. What you can do is to make sure that you have your site listed on your business cards, letterheads ... and any promotional material related to your business.
