One of my best tips is to cover all angles of marketing. Creating traffic is one of the most important elements that you must thoroughly cover in order to succeed online. There are so many different ways to generate income (subscriptions, product sales, subscriber lists, AdSense income, sales on e-books, synergyTowner income, and more income Yeah!) distrubing your site traffic that it is crucial you put in time and effort to master the entire market; it takes time and some perseverance to stumble upon the perfect marketing system that will help you achieve any of the goals you have for your online business.
Once you find your marketing plan you must put it to the test. Head over to Google and enter your URL (if you don't know what a URL is this blog is never going to make it much more easier for you!) into the search bar. Before you click search, go to the upper left corner and right side to make sure that your URL turns up in their results. If it does then you might have dived into a new market or directory directory on another search engine and your site will be displayed with a link as in the picture to the right. Don't worry about that just yet, most likely Google page rank is through the roof. Make sure the page rank page is a higher one than you currently receive. In most cases lower page rank means lesser traffic, so try to optimize your pages by editing the data. Keep in mind your goal in online marketing and determine where the traffic is headed before you start the work in the first place. Then, give yourself a chance at placing. Give yourself a chance of ranking!
Your header, what list the article is on, your ad and your site almost meaningless if you choose not to ask for your reader's input.
The whole site has to be related to your article for this technique to be effective. As I said before, you have many ways to generate targeted traffic. The first things I would add are articles for newsletter announcing the new posts, email link and site address at the bottom for links from forums or groups. Also, adding comments to other sites of you interest is another way to drive traffic to your site.
Blogging is another great way to get traffic. The key here is to make your blog look like it is a person business, not a pure sales endeavor. This is where your post should have a general theme and have useful information. The more relevant your post is to the topic, the better your chances of increasing traffic to your site. This also helps expose you as an expert in your niche. Try to tag and link all of your posts (pokergalaxy) with key terms. Great, you have got it down. I will add more as I feel them fit better on my site.
In your article, you should keep your readers in mind. Treat them as you would. Give them information. Don't try to hard sell at the start. Give them useful information and then make sure they know they can click the link to your site to buy.
Hopefully these tips will help you on your journey. Remember, nobody uses word processors anymore and no one types in links like they used to. Just think of it this way: if your site was so great people would like to go to your site, but you were getting a 0 to a 1 for every site period, what do you think is the next step? Go find out what the Internet is like in 10 years. That's amazing to me, considering how much we leave on e-commerce sites.
Any emailing that you do is a potential customer to your product. So as a marketer, why not try as best you can to get in touch with your potential customers? Follow up using an autoresponder program that will help hand you out your email marketing information for future visits. People you have connected with with won't mind getting a little email from you once in awhile just to update them with your site.
