Internet Marketing Strategies #1

By Jamie Boyle

Trafficswarm is it too good to be true?

For most people, getting high-quality targeted visitors
to their site is probably one of the "hardest" things to
do ... unfortunately it's also the most important.

The reason it's difficult for most small businesses and
online marketers is that the majority of popular site
promotion strategies either take up A LOT of time, cost
a lot of money, or are too risky. Right?

Well, I'm writing to you today because I want to let you
know about a new, fully-automated traffic-generation
system that can send 1000's of targeted prospects to
your site, every single day, absolutely FREE!

Trafficswarm It Works!

Would you believe that this new system is:

-> 100% Free! - Always has been, and always will be
-> Automated - 5 minutes to set it up, then forget it
-> Targeted - you'll get only real, targeted traffic
-> "Viral" - your traffic will increase exponentially

I thought it was too good to be true at first ... but
after testing it out, the results have been extremely
profitable. And the feedback so far has been great:

"Holy *#@% ... this is really amazing! I never thought
something free could bring so much traffic. Truthfully,
it seems to be working better than most of my paid ads."

Anyway, do us both a favor and check it out ASAP. It's
still pretty new and you will benefit even more if you
create your FREE account now before most people join.


Give it a try and let me know what you think ...

Effective Tips On Reciprocal Linking

By Jamie Boyle

When reciprocal link is used properly it can drastically increase your PR in search engines and bring you nice quality traffic as well.

Some of the first thing people should do when looking at reciprocal linking are:

1. Make sure the page that your linking to has an equal or greater PR then you. By doing so it increases the quality and value of that link. As your PR increases, search engines notice your site a lot more. You can see your PR by downloading the Google Toolbar.

2. Make sure that when you exchange links with sites that they have related content. When doing so, search engines will notice them more.

3. Make sure that when setting up titles as your links that you contain your keywords in there. Do not just use your website address. By doing so search engines will pull up those keywords in your title and have more effective results when searches are done.

4. Never include more then 100 links on your webpage as search engines picks this up as a form of spam. If doing so it will hurt your PR.

5. Make sure you check to see if your link is still on the other persons website periodically.

6. Make sure you only exchange links that are appropriate for your site. Instead of trying to add more and more links to your site to get your exchange links up, try and only choose the ones that are best suited for the content of your site. Quality over quantity.

By following these simple steps this will help you improve your Google PR and drive some good steady targeted traffic to your website.

Internet Marketing Seminars Are Gold Mines

By Jamie Boyle

You have probably wondered in the past,"Are internet marketing seminars really worth it." The answer to that is,"YES". Some seminars can be quite expensive I have to admit but too be honest that's pennies for what you will gain coming out of there.

I often hate to call these things "seminars", they sound so boring and long. Think of it as school or tools to success. We all went to school to learn to be able to have certain jobs in certain fields. Well internet marketing seminars are your tools to success. Without learning and expanding our knowledge in marketing how can we be truly successful in todays competitive market. These seminars can save people a lot of time and frustration on top of a lot of money wasted on testing if things will work.

What you gain from these seminars are knowledge and networking. You will learn first hand what top internet marketers are doing to make six figure incomes. The things what people need to do is take everything in. These people have already succeeded at it, what you need to do is take that knowledge you learn from there an use it. On top of all the great knowledge and tips you will learn, it will be a great way to network and meet people. These could very well be contacts for life. The next person you meet at these conferences might be the next person to make you a lot of money.

The bottom line is, internet marketing seminars can be quite useful to your business as long people take full advantage of what they have in front of them.

I'ts only a waste of time if you don't use the knowledge that is provided to you and use your time wisely to network and expand your social network. Create business partners and relationships. On top of sharing ideas and sharing your product to their friends it will create that extra edge you need into todays business world.

Increasing Website Traffic Through Reciprocal Linking and One Way Links

By Jamie Boyle

You can drastically increase website traffic by submitting your website to website directories. When submitting your site to website directories you can link to that site either by reciprocal linking or one way links.

In the past reciprocal linking was widely used but now a days one way linking is the way to go. Once you get visitors to your website you want to keep them there. The longer they are there the higher chance of a sale. What people need to do is submit there site to 1000's of directories and which will in turn have thousands of links pointing back to you. Most directories out there offer free submissions but people always have the chance to have there site listed higher in the directories for a small fee. Now we all know that submitting sites to 1000's of directories would take a very long time by hand, now on the market people can get Directory Submitters that will have the form all filled out for you speeding up the whole process. Submitting to directories is a sure way to increase your page ranking on search engines.

There are many others you can choose from just go to any search engine and type in internet marketing and it will give you a list of great forums to choose from. If you get into a routine with forum marketing you will see great results with your website traffic.

Generating Website Traffic By Forum Marketing

By Jamie Boyle

One of the best ways to generate traffic to any website is through forums. That is the best spot to get some high quality traffic to your site. Forums offer people a spot to exchange ideas and communicate through posting. Its like a small community of people that talk about business or other issues depending on the type of forum you join.

Forums offers you a chance to:

1. Ask questions- You will be able to ask any question you may have that people will respond back to, experts in that topic. For example, maybe you want to know more on how to generate website traffic or your looking at information on getting your website among the top search engines.

2. Answer questions- You can answer questions on the the topic that people may be inquiring about. For example if you know a lot of tips on internet marketing you will be able to share with others.

3. Ask for an opinion- You can ask others on what they thought of a particular product or service that others may have used or tried. You can even ask people their thoughts on an article you may have wrote on your blog. You can make a post asking for their thoughts leaving you good advertsing for your signature and they are able to leave comments on your blog that provide back links to you.

Forum marketing is something people should do on a daily basis. It's highly effective and provides links back to your website. When signing up to forums you should first update your profile before posting anything. On your profile page is where you can add your website or websites in your signature link. So for every post you make your signature is there for everyone to see. Try and use catchy phrases that will draw people to click on your link. Make sure also when you join forums you read all the rules. Every forum is different so make sure you do this. When using forum marketing properly every day can drastically increase sales while helping others along the way. Forums are great way to meet people and there are a lot of new people looking for information. I'ts a truly great way to bring lots of website traffic your way.

Why You're Losing Traffic and How to Make Them Stay

Why You're Losing Traffic and How to Make Them Stay

Don't make these common mistakes that turn off your visitors, never to return
If you’re like most website owners, chances are you’re losing a large percentage of your visitors before they complete a desired action on your website. Although the number of factors that drive potential consumers away can be varied, I’ve noticed many common mistakes in my work of designing websites for optimal performance. Here’s where many sites go wrong:

1. Lack of a Clear Purpose

Why was your site designed? What is the purpose of your site? Are you selling a product or service? Are you sharing information or serving as a forum to aggregate ideas and comments? Are you providing a social benefit?

If your website doesn’t communicate its purpose in 3 seconds or less, you’re going to lose visitors. I’ve seen this on numerous occassions, especially among companies who don’t know what they want their site to be or communicate. Make sure your website has a clear purpose and everything else will follow.

2. Making it Long-Winded and Complicated

Today, individuals have less time than ever before. As a result, time is their most precious asset – don’t waste it. The majority of people using the internet today still prefer brevity over verse. Try to say what you need to say in as few words as possible. If users have to scroll through 2 screens or more then it’s too much.

When writing for your site, highlight things of importance. You can use bulleted lists, short paragraphs, bolded and underlined text. Some of you may be asking about the marketing websites with long copy. If you know what I’m talking about, these are generally marketing pages (squeeze pages) that have been developed to promote a single product or service. This is not what I’m referring to here. For websites, copy should be brief and to the point.

3. Giving Web Visitors Too Many Distractions

As I alluded to before, websites should be designed with the single purpose of directing visitors to the information they want. A real prospect is one that needs the same information you want to provide; the art of sales is directing potential clients to relevant information, and presenting it in a way that visitors see your product or service as fulfilling their needs.

This is the reason why I don’t promote Google Adwords on my website. Why? Because it distracts potential buyers from purchasing what I have to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I make a nice living promoting affiliate products, but I do so on my own terms and I only promote those products that I haver personally reviewed and approve of.

4. Eroding Your Own Credibility

Does your website give first time visitors plenty of reasons to trust you? Website visitors are constantly looking for reasons why they should abandon your site. Does your site have a number of spelling errors or images that don’t display? How easy is it to find your 800 number or other contact information?

If you want to develop trust among your visitors, make sure that the basics are covered, that your site looks and feels the part of a well established company. Present important information in obvious places, have an about section, and make it easy for visitors to contact you via email or phone. This will establish trust and confidence in their buying decisions.

5. Not Giving Web Visitors Enough Options

When offering a product or service, it’s a true benefit to offer multiple options, but not too many. You want to make sure that website visitors have more than one item, price point, or model to choose from. When analyzing why people leave websites, I’ve found that the reasons are much to often simpler than you might think; “I didn’t want everything in the package, only the trading cards…”, “They had X but didn’t offer Y”, “The price was too high…”, etc.

People like options. Identify the most compelling bundles or most popular products and offer solutions at various price points. This is the most effective way to position your products or services.

6. Giving Web Visitors Too Many Obstacles

Removing obstacles to a purchase is the most important thing you can do to ensure optimal sell through. Do you make people go through the order processing system before they can find out how much something costs, or do you demand potential customers read all of the fine print that only a lawyer could understand? Is your order process long and complicated?

When evaluating the effectiveness of a website’s checkout process, I’ve always found a large drop off rate. In fact, the majority of consumers who click, “buy now” never finish the purchase. There are a lot of reasons why, and its unrealistic to think that 100% of these individuals will convert, but a major reason is that the purchase process is much too long and complicated. Keep yours simple.

7. Giving Web Visitors Too Many Forms To Fill-in

Do you attract your visitors with special offers or free white papers and then demand that they fill-out complex forms, surveys, and questionnaires before you give them access to what they came for? If you do, you are probably losing a lot of people you attracted. Keep your sign up forms very brief.

Many websites loose a significant number of individuals who are just no longer willing to complete a long form. Keep your questions to a minimum – only collecting the information you need to take the next step with your prospect.

Conclusion

There are a number of ways to keep visitors on your website and improve conversion rates. I just described a number of the most common mistakes that websites are making today. Start with a clear purpose and put yourself in the shoes of a first-time visitor. Is your website clear, authoritative, trustworthy, and easy to navigate? Think like a potential customer and make your user experience second to none!

Secrets Of Successful Marketing

Discover the Secrets of Successful Marketing
By Michael Fleischner | Marketing Expert, Internet Marketing Secrets*

The discipline of marketing can often be complex and confusing. As a marketing veteran, I have seen countless marketing professionals get hung up on various aspects of marketing that have little impact on actual marketing results.

Based on my experience, there are four critical elements to an effective marketing campaign. Whether you're looking to improve your search engine marketing results, internet marketing, or marketing in general, be sure to follow these simple guidelines which I refer to as the A.T.O.M approach.

A.T.O.M - Audience, Timing, Offer, Message

1. Know Your Audience
No one can effectively market, communicate, or sell without knowing their audience or what motivates them to buy. Is your potential customer male or

female? Young or old? A first time buyer or frequent purchaser? Are they the final decision maker? Do they have preferences for a particular product, service, or delivery method? The more you know about your audience, the more targeted and relevant your marketing can be.

2. Timing is Everything
Even with the most convincing marketing campaign, prospects will have no interest in your product or service if you aren't communicating to them at the right time. Be sure your marketing message is in front of prospects when they're ready to buy. This could be at a particular time of year or perhaps prior to a life event.

3. Finding the Right Offer
In direct marketing, experts say that results are 40% dependant on your list, 40% on the offer, and 20% on your creative. The same is true for internet

marketing, search engine marketing, and the like. Test your offers and find the one that out performs all the others. This offer should continually be tested and refined to improve your results.

4. Its all about the Messaging
If you know your audience well enough, you should be able to craft a message that addresses their needs and differentiates your product or service

from the competition. Additionally, be sure to stress benefits over features. This will give your audience a reason to read, try, and buy.

The next time you are conducting a marketing campaign, use the A.T.O.M. approach. Knowing your audience, ensuring that you reach them when they're ready to buy, experimenting to find the

most productive offer, and communicating to them productively, are essential for any marketing campaign to deliver results.

How To Increase Website Traffic

How To Increase Web Traffic
By Michael Fleischner | Marketing Expert, Internet Marketing Secrets*

To succeed on the Internet, you must learn how to increase web traffic. Without getting targeted visitors to your website, you don’t stand a chance of selling your products or services to any large degree. There are a variety of tactics, tools, and resources you can use to increase web traffic. In this article, I’ll share with you the specific resources I’ve used to increase my website traffic and generate a large annual income online. More specifically, I’ll tell you some of the secret tools I’ve used to drive targeted web traffic.

Google Adwords
If you want to know how to increase web traffic instantly, then learn about Google Adwords. This is the most targeted form of marking on the Internet. However, it requires that you have a marketing budget and can realize a positive return on your investment.

Google Adwords allow you to drive traffic to your website using a specific keyword or phrase. Your ad appears across the Internet on websites displaying relative content. When users click on your ad, they are redirected to your web site. You must pay each time a user clicks on your ad which can get expensive, especially because a click does not guarantee a sale. Therefore, before using Google Adwords, you must fully understand how to increase web traffic using online marketing techniques such as cost per click and generating a positive ROI.

Optimizing your Webpages
A much simpler method to increasing web traffic is to optimize your homepage using on-page and off-page optimization techniques. The best part of this method is that it costs nothing! Learn to employ on-page optimization techniques such as using your selected keyword phrase in your meta tags (page title, description, etc.), as the title of your page using < h1 > tags, and sprinkling your keyword phrase throughout your text. Lastly, you want your keyword phrase to appear as the last thing on the page. These techniques alone are sure to increase your web traffic by improving search engine results.

Off-page optimization techniques are quite simple, yet more difficult to achieve. If you want to improve your search engine results and therefore increase your web traffic, then you must build links to your web page. This can be done through a link exchange program, directory submissions, or purchasing one-way links to your website. Don’t forget how to increase web traffic by combining on-page and off-page optimization techniques.

Low Budget Online Marketing Techniques
If you don’t have a budget to throw at online marketing, you may want to use some tried and true marketing techniques that require little or no investment other than your time and some basic HTML programming knowledge:

· Build an opt-in list that you can market to over and over again by offering something of value in exchange for an email list.

· Use viral marketing (referrals) to have your website visitors generate links to your website such as “email a friend”.

· Generate compelling “one-time-offers” to get users to take action and optimize these offers on their own web page so that the search engines can pick them up.

· Focus your website copy using the WIIFM concept (what’s in it for me?). By doing so, users will find your site engaging a recommend others to visit your site.

· Develop an affiliate program and get others to generate traffic to your website by offering a commission when selling your products or giving you referrals.

· Use testimonials one your site and see your on-site purchase rates skyrocket! Using this technique alone to increase web traffic has generated thousands of conversion that I otherwise would not have had.

These are just a few of the marketing techniques I’ve used over the past few years to generate serious online income. I learned these techniques and a number of others from a report I read online about web marketing techniques. I usually don’t recommend someone else’s products, but if you’re serious about generating an online income, you should check out the Butterfly Marketing Report. It really helped me understand basic marketing techniques and apply them quickly to generate a steady monthly income. If you want to check it out, just click here or serch on Google for traffic generating strategies in your specific market niche.

Increasing Web Traffic by submitting your site to Web Directories
I couldn’t believe how many websites offer free directories for those seeking specific information on the web. After doing a number of Google searches, I quickly found one powerful way to answer the question of how to increase web traffic – Search Directories. You can submit to a lot of web directories, but the most popular is DMOZ. Dmoz is the Internet’s largest human edited directory. The drawback is that it takes a long time to get your website listed. So if you haven’t already submitted your site, go to DMOZ.org to find a relevant category and submit your site.

Using these techniques and a number of others, I have learned how to increase website traffic. What’s great is that I do so without spending a large sum of money. The best investment you can make is to read all you can about online marketing techniques that show you how to increase web traffic and apply them.
