7 Killer Strategies for Unlimited Traffic

In this article, I’m going to share with you 7 killer traffic strategies for attracting thousands of visitors to your website each and every week. They include:

  1. High-Profile Article Marketing
  2. Forum Marketing
  3. Ebook Syndication
  4. Video Marketing
  5. Viral Pushes
  6. Ad Swaps
  7. Paid Advertising

These are the exact strategies I have used to build a mailing list of over 7,000 subscribers.So without further ado, let’s dive into the details…

1. High-Profile Article Marketing

As you probably know, article marketing is one of the best ways to drive highly-targeted traffic to your website. However, if you re-focus your efforts towards high-profile article marketing can generate 10x as much traffic.

Instead of submitting your articles to article directories, you submit them to the top websites and blogs in your market.

So, for example, if you have a blog about sports, you could submit your articles to http://bleacherreport.com/ , one of the most popular sports websites online. If you have a website about weddings, you could submit articles to http://www.favorideas.com/submit-wedding-articles/

If you have a website about parenting, you could submit articles to http://www.momsnetwork.com/submit-articles.shtml

If you have a website about finance, you could submit articles to http://www.istockanalyst.com/article/submitarticle.html

Are you starting to get the idea here? No matter what market you’re in, there are very popular websites that you could be submitting articles to for massive traffic.

Here’s a list of very popular websites that I personally submit articles to. The list below is a gold mine for building a list of thousands of subscribers. If you published just ONE really good article every day to the following websites, and had a good call to action in your resource box that sent people to your squeeze page, then you would have a highly responsive list of AT LEAST 1,000 subscribers by the end of the month.

2. Forum Marketing

Forum marketing is another excellent strategy for building a list of subscribers and sending tons of traffic to your website.

Forum marketing is a highly underrated, but extremely effective strategy for building a list of subscribers, driving highly-targeted traffic, and establishing yourself as an authority in your particular market.

Forums put you directly in front of your target market, making it a goldmine for driving thousands of highly targeted visitors to your website.

But keep in mind here that the key to successful forum marketing is to become an active participant in the community. Your first priority is to deliver lots of value. And that means posting highly valuable content in the forums and helping people with their questions.

Once you’ve become a trusted member and delivered some great value in your posts, people will naturally want to learn more about what you have to offer.

This is where your signature link comes in…

You’ll want to use your signature link to send people to your squeeze page where you can build your list of subscribers.

Here’s an example of a good signature line:

“Find out how to get front-page Google Rankings in 24 hours with my FREE Google Domination Video series… http://www.yoursqueezepagehere.com ”

The key here is to entice them with some sort of benefit to get them tocome to your website. Keep your signature file short and to the point.You should only be promoting one page in your signature file. Don’t confuse people with multiple options.

Also keep in mind that it’s the value of your post that drives people to look at your signature. If you provide people with extraordinary value, then they will naturally want to check out more of your content.

So focus on providing value. One extremely valuable post is worth 10x

more than 20 average posts.

Here’s a list of the top Internet Marketing Forums:

http://www.daniweb.com/forums/forum25.html

You can also use the Warrior Forum to quickly build a large list of subscribers by posting free WSO’s. http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-special-offers-forum/

You can also build your list by posting free offers on the Digital Point Forums as well (in the Buy, Sell, and Trade section.)

http://forums.digitalpoint.com/forumdisplay.php?f=24

Another great place to post your offer and build your list is http://marketplace.sitepoint.com

You can create free reports to give away on these forums simply by combining a collection of your article into a free PDF report. By re-purposing your articles, you will be able to generate even more traffic and subscribers.

*** Always be looking for ways to re-purpose your content. There are a TON of ways to get extra mileage out of any type of content you create online.

3. Ebook Syndication

Speaking of re-purposing your content, another excellent way to re-use your content is to combine your articles into an ebook and submit them to all of the top Ebook directories.

This is an extremely powerful technique that very few marketers are taking advantage of.

Simply combine your articles into a PDF ebook, which you can do with a free piece of software called NitroPDF.

Here’s a list of the most popular ebook directories where you can submit your free ebooks…


Free Ebooks

Jogena

ebook2u
GetFreeEbooks
EbookMall
Scribd

DocStoc
Published.com

Ebook88
EbooksTemplateSource
Ebook Tags
Ideamarketers
EbookJungle

Ebook Directory

KnowFree

E-Books Directory

MyBook

In order to collect subscribers from your ebook, be sure to put an ad at the top of the ebook that points them to your squeeze page. You can also use a PDF PopUp to collect subscribers.

Syndicating your ebook is an excellent strategy for building your list, increasing your traffic, and building links to your site.

4. Video Marketing

Video marketing is one of the best ways to tap into the massive amount of traffic on sites like YouTube, Viddler, Veoh, and Google Video.

Create 3-5 minute videos that you can post to all of the top video submission sites.

Use http://www.tubemogul.com to automate your video submissions.

Send people from your video to your squeeze page. You’ll be surprised at just how powerful this technique can be.

Quick Tip: Create 2-part videos to increase click-through rate.

5. Viral Pushes

Once you have built an audience for your website and a list of subscribers, it’s now time to leverage that existing audience with some viral pushes.

This is where you do some extra promotion for the best articles on your blog. For this technique to work properly, you must be promoting a killer article that over-delivers on value.

Once you have a top-notch article, now it’s time to create a viral push!

You can do this in a number of different ways. One of my favorite strategies is to use StumbleUpon Ads.

StumbleUpon allows you to put your content in front of your target audience for just 5 cents a click.

Once people start coming to your site, they will give it a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. By paying for this initial base of visitors, you can easily start a viral campaign that will spread throughout StumbleUpon and onto many of the other popular social sites online.

Buying StumbleUpon ads is an excellent way to give your content the push it needs to get over that tipping point.

Another excellent strategy for giving your content a viral push is to ask your subscribers to tweet your article. Simply by asking your subscribers to do something specific, you will get a much higher response rate.

You can also allow your readers to automatically tweet your post using Tweet Meme.

Create at least one viral push every week and watch your traffic soar!

6. Ad Swaps

Once you’ve built a list of 1,000 subscribers, start using ad swaps to grow your list exponentially.

This is an extremely valuable technique that can add hundreds of subscribers to your list at a time.

Here are some places online where you can find other list owners who are looking to do ad swaps:

7. Paid Advertising Options

Paid advertising is another excellent option AFTER you have optimized your sales process. Here are some of the top paid advertising options for those in the Internet Marketing field…

    Great list Kim, thanks for sharing these.

    I found that building a solid network on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter also helps in getting referral traffic. While it may not be very targeted traffic (depending on how you are building your network and what criteria you use), traffic is still traffic and if viral buttons are present on really good page content, the traffic you get can get others to view your pages that they promote on their own volition and go viral.

    Thanks so much Kim. You’ve put together some great ideas and a great number of resources.
    The idea of submitting articles to blogs and using the web 2.0 properties is definitely working. I’ve tested it before and these articles ranked higher than article directories. Also Scribd and Docstoc are killers to get high ranking in Google.

    truly excellent post. I always look forward to your e-mails and read your new blog posts, because they contain so much valuable information. Thanks for your efforts and keep up the good work :)
    Just one recommendation – you might want to edit your blog posts so that the links open in a new window, otherwise you’re sending away your own traffic.

    hie kim :D

    thanks for your informative site.

    just wondering when you mention

    1. High-Profile Article Marketing

    do you submit same articles to all the different articles site?

  • Kim

    Hey Charles,

    Great Question!

    There’s nothing wrong with article directories in particular,
    but they’re not going to send you nearly the kind of traffic
    that you can get with high-profile content syndication (which
    refers to guest blogging and contributing content to the most
    popular sites within your market.) You will get much more traffic
    by submitting your best, exclusive content to the top sites within
    your market.

    You can also multiply the marketing exposure of your content by
    repurposing it into multiple formats. So for example you can take
    your articles, turn them into PDF reports and then syndicate them
    to all of the top ebook directories online. This will get your content
    thousands of extra views and will allow you to sign up hundreds of
    extra subscribers for each report you syndicate.

    This is an EXTREMELY powerful technique that very few people are using.
    You can also re-purpose your content by turning it into podcasts, videos, autoresponders, etc… And each time you re-purpose your content you can then syndicate it for even further exposure. The best part is that re-purposing your content requires very little work on
    your part.

    So instead of getting stuck just slaving away submitting your articles
    to article directories (which is becoming less and less effective), start looking for high-profile, popular websites and blogs within
    your market where you can contribute your content. And continually look for ways that you can re-purpose and re-format your content to
    multiply your traffic and exposure.

    Hope this helps!
