I was sitting down watching tv this week when I thought ‘why not do a detailed killer traffic strategy’ for attracting thousands of visitors to your website on a regular basis week in and week out…
I went off and noted the seven main areas to include:
- High-Profile Article Marketing
- Forum Marketing
- Ebook Syndication
- Video Marketing
- Viral Pushes
- Ad Swaps
- Paid Advertising
Wether you want to build a list of promiote your site i’ll out line the strategies do follow to enable you to do this. SO lets go and out line what you need to do.
** High-Profile Article Marketing
Within the internet Marketing arena we all know that article marketing is one of the best ways to drive highly-targeted traffic to your website. However, if you re-focus your efforts towards high-profile article marketing can generate 10x as much traffic as standard article marketing.
Don’t waste your time submitting your articles to bulk standard article directories when you can submit to the more specific targetted top websites and blogs in your target market.
If you have a blog about sports then we need to be submitting our articles to sites such as http://bleacherreport.com/ which is one of the most popular sports websites online today. What if your website is all about weddings and wedding related servcies then you should be submitting articles to sites such as http://www.favorideas.com/submit-wedding-articles/
How about if your niche web site is all about parenting, you could submit articles to http://www.momsnetwork.com/submit-articles.shtml
How about if your niche web site is all about about finance, you could submit articles to http://www.istockanalyst.com/article/submitarticle.html
Do you see a pattern emerging here? We need to be submitting your articles to a targetted audience of readers to gain massive amounts of traffic for your articles. So use the very popular websites for submitting articles to gain this massive traffic.
Here’s a list of very popular websites that I personally submit articles to. The list below is a gold mine for building a list of thousands of subscribers. If you published just ONE really good article every day to the following websites, and had a good call to action in your resource box that sent people to your squeeze page, then you would have a highly responsive list of AT LEAST 1,000 subscribers by the end of the month.

http://www.tutorialized.com (Submit your articles in the Marketing or SEO sections. This site will send traffic directly to your blog or website. So you will need to have a website set up to submit your articles here. But they can drive hundreds of visitors to your site.)
http://www.copyblogger.com (a very popular IM blog that accepts guest bloggers.)
The following is a list of sites where you can syndicate your articles.

** Forum Marketing
Forum marketing is another excellent strategy for building a list of subscribers and sending tons of traffic to your website.
Forum marketing is a highly underrated, but extremely effective strategy for building a list of subscribers, driving highly-targeted traffic, and establishing yourself as an authority in your particular market.
Forums put you directly in front of your target market, making it a goldmine for driving thousands of highly targeted visitors to your website.
But keep in mind here that the key to successful forum marketing is to become an active participant in the community. Your first priority is to deliver lots of value. And that means posting highly valuable content in the forums and helping people with their questions.
Once you’ve become a trusted member and delivered some great value in your posts, people will naturally want to learn more about what you have to offer.
This is where your signature link comes in…
You’ll want to use your signature link to send people to your squeeze page where you can build your list of subscribers.
Here’s an example of a good signature line:
“Find out how to get front-page Google Rankings in 24 hours with my FREE Google Mystic 2.0 Video series… http://www.yoursqueezepagehere.com ”
The key here is to entice them with some sort of benefit to get them tocome to your website. Keep your signature file short and to the point.You should only be promoting one page in your signature file. Don’t confuse people with multiple options.
Also keep in mind that it’s the value of your post that drives people to look at your signature. If you provide people with extraordinary value, then they will naturally want to check out more of your content.
So focus on providing value. One extremely valuable post is worth 10x more than 20 average posts.
Here’s a list of the top Internet Marketing Forums:
You can also use the Warrior Forum to quickly build a large list of subscribers by posting free WSO’s. http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers-forum/
You can also build your list by posting free offers on the Digital Point Forums as well (in the Buy, Sell, and Trade section.)
Another great place to post your offer and build your list is http://marketplace.sitepoint.com
You can create free reports to give away on these forums simply by combining a collection of your article into a free PDF report. By re-purposing your articles, you will be able to generate even more traffic and subscribers.
