How To Get Laser Targeted Traffic

Aug 5, 2008
If you are an Internet entrepreneur, your reason for setting up a website is to make money. And you would probably like to make lots and lots of money from the comfort and convenience of your own home. But to get that money, you must have targeted traffic.

Targeted traffic means visitors to your website who have a very high probability of already being interested in buying the products or services you offer. It doesn't do you much good to get a plethora of people to come to your website who are interested in buying something that you don't even sell. You need to attract people who are interested in your specific products and services.

So, what can you do to get targeted traffic to your website?

Well, one tool is a newsletter. With this, visitors who visit your website can choose to sign up to receive a free periodic newsletter from you in their e-mail. This won't be seen as spam because they have given you permission to contact them by signing up. A newsletter keeps your name in front of them and allows you to easily send out updates, promotions, special offers, etc.

Your opt-in list can also be a great source of referrals for you. These people may find they know other people who may be interested in what you offer and they'll pass on your contact info to them. Next, they will visit your website. Referrals are usually extremely targeted traffic, so make sure you provide high-quality information in your newsletter.

But, probably the best way of initially getting the necessary targeted traffic to your website is by writing articles. Just one article written by you can be published in article directories such as the famous EZineArticles.com or GoArticles.com, among scores of others and with more emerging all the time. There are literally hundreds of article directories to choose from.

Now, you might be wondering, "What's so important about articles?"

First of all, they establish you as an expert in your industry. People want to do business with the most knowledgeable people. Another thing articles do is establish trust. Potential buyers want to deal with people they can trust. Gain their trust and your much more likely to convert a casual visitor into a customer.

Your articles can be picked up and republished by other people who run similar, non-commercial websites (or sometimes complementary commercial ones). Not only is this a surce of targeted traffic, but it will also help increase your link popularity. More links always equals more traffic!

Your articles will eventually show up in search engines and be read by many more people over time. Once you get this powerful traffic machine rolling, there is literally no way to stop it (not that you would ever want to though).

To get maximum results, each article should focus on a specific keyword phrase, have a link in the bio section to your website, be between 450 and 750 words long, and offer very valuable information that is presented in an easy-to-read format.

After you have published 15 or 20 articles, you'll likely see a big increase in your targeted traffic and your profits! So, what are you waiting for? I suggest you write and submit your first article today!
