101 Marketing Strategies that are proven to Create Traffic?

By Trisha Frauenhofer

Whatever kind of online business yours is, 101 Marketing Strategies can help you to make it a successful one. Traffic is the thing which every online business must have - without traffic you simply don't have a business. For this reason, there are literally thousands of companies which claim that they have the method which will bring your site huge amounts of traffic. However, there are simply so many companies out there that it can be hard to sort them out - they can't all have the secret to building your online business, can they?

How then can you determine if these companies can live up to all of their claims? Is it true that they and only they out of all of the companies out there can get you the massive traffic your business needs to really grow? When the internet was younger, all you needed to do to get traffic was simply to have a website. However, now that everyone has a site, it's an entirely different game - it can be hard to get your site to stand apart from the crowd.

To get the traffic you need to your site, start by writing articles. Write one about your marketing skills. Make it something which will interest readers, not just a long, disjointed ramble about how terrific your website is. Make a suggestion to readers about where to find the product or service they're looking for.

You've probably tried a few different marketing techniques already - you think you've tried every marketing strategy ever invented. However, you owe it to yourself and to your business to try 101 Marketing Strategies. For instance, they give this useful hint: If you want to make sure that your site gets noticed, don't put links in your article. This may sound counterintuitive to some, but in fact the resource box at the bottom of your article is a far better place to put any links to your site. Readers can read through your article and then see in your resource box that you have a website, the click on the link there to visit your site.

When you've written your articles and want to get them read by the public, it's time to get them out there. Get them to article directories, publishers, anywhere you think they have a chance of being read. Once your article appears in one place, it will likely be picked up by others until you have your article on hundreds, eve thousands of sites all over the internet. Each of these articles includes your resource box, giving you untold opportunities to get more traffic to your site.

If you're submitting articles to directories in order to get them published and distributed, you should be doing this as often as possible, but at least once a week. The more your name and your articles are out there being seen by the public, the more you'll be seen as an authority in your field. This gives you credibility - and people are swayed by this when deciding whether or not to make a purchase.

When you start getting your name in the public eye with articles that you have published, this will drive traffic to your website in hordes. If you do not have a website, but your articles are designed to recommend something sold on another's website, you are an affiliate marketer. Which is fine, because you will profit right along with the person whose product you are endorsing.

Many people think they know the correct way to market their product or site. However if the marketing is not done correctly, the traffic will not make it to the service or product that you are selling. Let's face it, if you are not getting thousands of people checking out your website or an affiliate website, you are not generating the traffic that you could be. To generate an income, which is your main objective in the first place, you must have traffic. - 16651
