Marketing For Local Business...
Hello again, and welcome
to this third article on how to promote your local business using the Internet.
Yesterday we looked at how to
super-size your potential market while only attracting the exact visitors you
want - those who are passionately interested in what you offer. And if you missed yesterday's
lesson you can read it
Today I'm going to share that the
absolute best way (apart from paying for traffic or getting visitors from search
engines :-) to boost your website's traffic numbers.
Let's face it, there's just too much
for the average website owner to do when it comes to building content,
attracting visitors, finding affiliate programs, and everything else we have to
do. All this in addition to running your business and the myriad of things that
Focus On The
Highest Leverage Strategies
The best way to leverage your time
as far as building website traffic is concerned is
to outsource the grunt work while you focus your time on the highest and best
payoff projects you can find.
One of the most powerful traffic
generation methods you can use is to write and submit articles to major online
article directories. I've attracted thousands of visitors to my sites with
articles over the years, and many of them have turned into repeat, loyal
The downside of writing
and submitting articles has always been that the actual submission process is a
gigantic pain in the butt because it is so labor intensive.
What if there was a way to cost
effectively have your articles sent to thousands of webmasters and article
directories all over the web by submitting them just once?
Fact is, this is what I've been doing
lately and it's helped me to massively increase traffic using articles while
spending a fraction of the time doing it that I used to.
The key here is to write
articles and then let Article
Marketer.com submit them to their thousands of directories and other
publishers for you.
Short Term And Long-term Traffic
Writing and submitting articles results
in both short term (within a couple of days anyway) and long-term,
highly targeted visitors from all over the world
arriving at your website to learn more about you and
what you offer.
yourself as a knowledgeable expert in your field and start to build great
credibility with your target market. Honestly, there's no real downside
from writing and submitting quality articles. And there's a LOT of
The main one being that
your traffic flow remains
virtually unaffected by search engine's (particularly Google's) ongoing algorithm changes (or the Google-slap
effect as it is known now) and they have proven to be a much more reliable long
term source of targeted visitors than relying on search engines alone for many
You can always submit your articles yourself (if you've done this, you'll
already know that it's a painful and very time consuming process if you want to
submit them to a lot of directories), but you get massive leverage when you let
someone like Article
Marketer do it for you because you save your most valuable asset - your
Week Is All It Takes
I write and submit at least one article every week if I can manage the time and the Article Marketer
guys check it and get it out to their list of thousands of contacts within a day
I subscribed to the Article
Marketer lifetime subscription, but you can take it three months at a time,
or even submit some of your articles for free to a smaller list, and for the
amount of time it saves me over doing it myself, it's a no brainier.
I can now use the time I
used to spend submitting articles much more productively (and profitably) while
at the same time doing something I'd prefer to be doing instead.
One of the most empowering tips I can give you is to start outsourcing as much
of this labor intensive stuff as you can. Since I started doing this, my free
time and my productivity have tripled; I highly recommend it.
Of course your article resource box needs to drive people to a page where they
can opt-in to your newsletter database and not your home page (I made this
mistake for YEARS) so you have a chance to follow up with them.
As we've already discussed...
If you make your site's Most Wanted Response getting
your visitors to opt-in to a list of some sort, your traffic and revenue will
get a massive boost over time, guaranteed.
Getting a visitor once and letting them go is a huge waste of
time. Get them onto a list and they'll keep coming back to fill your bank
account with money year after year if you look after them.
And of course, you can use your
articles as part of your offline promotion efforts as well. Create an email
newsletter and send your client and prospect lists one article each week to keep
in touch, and a promotion for a related product or service can tag along for the
