How Can Offline Strategies Help Improve Your Online Sales?

Aug 17, 2007
By now you figured you have a decent site to promote your products online. You're trying different traffic generation strategies on the Internet to get traffic to your site such as forum marketing, pay-per-click and others. From these traffic generation strategies, you feel that you can get sufficient traffic to your site.

However, why not get more traffic so you can increase the chances of making a sale and improve your website conversion rate?

These traffic generation strategies do not have that much to do with the Internet. These strategies are called offline strategies. Some of the offline strategies you can use are:

1. By Word Of Mouth

Go to your family members or friends who support you in this Internet marketing venture. Promote to them with what you feel can help them in their lives. For example, if you're promoting a book on personal development, you can advise them on purchasing the book to help them in their problems, marriage etc.

To get them in touch with them, you can write a friendly email and provide them with the link to your site. Or you can talk about it with them and give the link to your site and ask them to check it out. There's nothing more like moral support from your family and friends.

2. Business Networking

When you're attending a seminar, do as much networking as possible. Equip yourself with name cards so that they can go to your site and let them see how far you have gone in Internet marketing. By mingling around with potential business associates, you can find ways in which you can promote your site by doing a joint venture with someone who you feel has the resources to give your site more exposure in the Internet world.

3. Submit Advertisements & Press Releases

You can write a press release to your local newspaper if you have a really great site to boast about and get people to know what you can offer to them. If your press release gets published, you've just earned a portion of a newspaper in which thousands of people will read your article, gain interest and head on down to your site.

You can also advertise your site by placing an advertisement in a newspaper or a business magazine. Make sure that the advertisement can greatly interest the reader and make them motivated to go to your site. What you can do is to ensure that your advertisement has a good sales copy and a specific time frame to tell your readers not to miss out in this time-limited opportunity.

These three simple offline strategies can greatly help your site in terms of traffic and sales. You do not have to look far in order for you to promote your site. Most Internet marketers underestimate the power of offline strategies, and I advise you not to be one of them.
