Who else want to decimate your online competition with totally free traffic strategies that work like magic? If you are anything like most of the people who read my stuff, the simple truth is that you’d like nothing more, right?
It’s true, and in the ever more competitive online marketing landscape, the MEEK are not inheriting the earth. The strong get stronger and the weak go wayside. It’s unfortunate that it happens to be that way, but if you aren’t making real progress on your business right now, the chances are, you never will unless you get some traction and fast! Let’s look at 7 strategies that WILL send a boatload of backsides at your site, service or offer if you do them properly.
1 – The Power of Press Releases: Very few are doing them. And it’s a shame…because they work like gangbusters.For incoming links, and for free traffic to boot.
2- Article Marketing Magic: One out of 10 online marketers uses OFF site content distribution as one of their primary traffic getting strategies. And out of that number, 1 in 100 does it consistently, or well. A loss for them….but a gargantuan gain for everyone else who makes it a habit.
3 – Automation Tools: I use them, and just about everybody I know who wants major league leverage uses them too. RSS plugins, article aggregators and more should be an important part of your “wide net” approach to owning as many eyeballs in your niche as humanly possible.
4 – Smart Social Networking Strategies: The key word there being “smart”. Stop wasting time hunting down “do follow” links, and start spending MORE time on creating compelling, controversial, confrontational or even comedic things to say once you DO comment. Far more powerful for getting an avalanche of traffic than worrying how much incremental value that link is going to give you for sure!
5 – Outsource. Things you CAN’T do in house – outsource. Even things you CAN do in house – outsource. The more of the menial stuff you can pay someone else to do, the more of the gold getting stuff you can do for yourself. ( this is really, at the end of the day, the most important distinction of them all…and if you do nothing else, just start reinvesting in getting help, and you’ll make more progress than ever before on that one decision alone)
6 – Re purpose Your Content. Everywhere! There are plenty of places to distribute your content that will send more traffic to your primary offers. Article directories, document repositories, social bookmaking sites, forums, hobby boards and just about any place else that will accept content is a great place to put it. Outsource it, and for 50 bucks you can build an evergreen, and ever growing source of “drip” traffic that will pay off handsomely over time. (Much the way that you will eventually be able to read THIS article, or some permutation of it in a zillion different places within 6 months or so)
7 – Thing BIG. Go outside the box. Build your own network of sites, blogs and incoming links. Use all of the above to OWN your niche, and don’t over think it. This stuff is not brain surgery and don’t’ let any of the “gurus” scare you into thinking it is. Keep it simple, stay focused and watch as your businesses explodes!
There you have it – you’ve GOT the goods. Now go out there and make it happen – I promise, if you follow the above, you’ve got all you need to get there!
