5 Methods to Keep Visitors Returning to Your Site

Jul 17, 2008
The biggest concern for Internet Marketers or anyone marketing online is traffic. Obviously, if no one comes to your site or your affiliate sites, you're not going to sell anything. Therefore, you will not earn any income.

In fact, a low number of visitors is just about as bad as no visitors, as far as financial prosperity goes. Now, the key is to not only get more visitors, but to not let any previous visitors slip away. You work hard to get them, so it makes very little sense to not try to hold on to them. You want them coming back again and again.

If you have a content site, you obviously want people to revisit as much as possible in order to keep your offers in front of them.

Here are 5 methods you should use to keep visitors coming back to your site again and again:

1. Have a newsletter

On your site, you should have a newsletter sign up form prominently displayed along with an offer for some kind of a freebie. When people subscribe to your newsletter, you can stay in contact with them, as they have opted-in to allow you to send them emails. You should then provide them with great content they can use.

2. Keep updating your site

If there's never anything new for your visitors to see, there's no sense in them coming back to your site. Always make it a point to add fresh content regularly.

3. Use give-aways

Give-aways can be anything, such as gifts, coupons, tickets, articles, ebooks, or whatever. People are curious, so try the "mystery gift" give-away. People will come back to your site just to see what it is.

4. Use games

Games on your site may make people want to come back repeatedly to play. This is a great way to make people addicted to your site.

5. Take polls

People love to give their opinion. So, if you want to know what people think about your site, just ask them. They'll come to your site just to fill out the opinion form. This method has a second benefit - it allows you to make improvements to your site or newsletter based on public opinion.


Traffic is the name of the game when it comes to marketing online and earning income.

You work hard to get traffic to your site. You may even buy advertising in the way of pay per click or ezine advertising. So, to get the most from your investments, the key is to not let anyone come to your site without giving them a reason to want to come back.
