7 Low Or No Cost Ways To Generate Laser-Targeted Traffic To Any Website

Aug 17, 2007
There is one vitally important rule in generating a consistent income for your website: You need a steady flow of targeted website traffic. If you do not have any visitors coming to your site, you will not make any money. That is just a fact.

Be assured: There are many ways to generate low cost website traffic so you do not have to spend what you do not have or cannot afford.

Here is a short overview of the most effective ways of getting visitors for free or low cost:

Joint Ventures

If you have a product that is of high quality, you should try to get list owners to promote it for you. In return, you should offer them a much higher than usual commission. Even the full 100%. Your goal should be not to profit on the frontend but on the backend.

In other words, you must build your list and offer these new subscribers or buyers other, related products. Once they are on your list, you have multiple chances of making them an offer they cannot resist.

Link Exchanges

This is a surefire and proven method and has been working for years. You will seldom find a website which does not have any link to another site. Most webmasters are willing to exchange links with each other so that they could produce more public awareness about their sites. You will soon see and feel the sudden upsurge of the traffic coming in to your site from other sites.

A major prerequisite in exchanging links with other sites is being in a related niche or have similar content as the other site. Exchanging links also boosts your chance of getting a higher ranking in search engine results; even though it is working better with one way links.

Viral Marketing

Viral marketing, also known otherwise as viral advertising, is a marketing technique used to build the public awareness of your product or company. In a nutshell, companies ride on the idea that if people like the content of a media, they will pass it on to their friends and family.

Viral marketing has become a very popular means of advertising and marketing because it is relatively inexpensive. To avoid being tagged as spam mail, viral marketing counts on the eagerness of one person to pass on the product. If a person sees the name of the person they know as the sender, they will not block it and open it as well.

Write and Submit Articles

There are many ezines and article directories on the internet which are waiting for your article submissions. Also, many freelance writers are willing to write articles for you for a small fee if you cannot write them yourself.

Write about something that you have expertise in so that when they read it, they can see that you are the expert on the subject. Provide tips and guidelines related to the subject or niche your site is about. Include a resource box at the end of your article and link it back to your site.

Publish a Newsletter.

Publishing a newsletter gives you free advertising to targeted prospects. If you think that you are not a writer or you do not know how to write an ezine, you can outsource that part of your business.

Hire writers on freelancer platforms like Elance.com, Scriptlance.com, Guru.com or similar websites. In your newsletter, make recommendations for products you like and which you have personally used. Then you are almost guaranteed to make sales.

Participate in Forum Discussions

This only requires your time and nothing else. You can share your knowledge and expertise in many online communities and get well known as a helpful person.

You can get free advertising when you are frequenting forums that are on the same subject or are in the same niche as your own website by using your signature line when posting. This signature line has a little description and link leading to your website.

Start a free Blog

You can start a blog for free on a platform like Blogger.com. By adding exclusive niche content to your blog on a regular basis (at least 4-5 times a week), you can achieve the same high positions which regular websites are getting.

You just have to be careful that you are not choosing a too competitive niche or keywords. Then direct that traffic to your main site where they will read your salesletter in order to make sales.
