Video Marketing

Using Video Marketing to Drive Website Traffic

If you’re looking to get your website seen, one of the best techniques you can use to drive traffic is video marketing.

It’s one of the most engaging, influential, and potentially profitable forms of marketing today.

There is no cap on the amount of videos you can do if you have the time and put in the effort.

This doesn’t mean post a bunch of videos just to be posting videos, but it does mean that if you are doing videos that are informative and value packed people will respond.

Video marketing has the ability to capture people’s attention and allows you the luxury to establish authority like no other form of marketing.

People get to actually see you in the flesh and hear you speak about your product or service.

This one traffic source has been the bread and butter for many successful online businesses today.

Benefits of Video Marketing

Video Marketing provides an number of benefits to improve your business or promote your products or services.

Some benefits include:

  • Allowing you to highlight your products and services in an informative and entertaining way to viewers.
  • Increase blog traffic by driving YouTube video traffic to your blog.
  • Visitors are more likely to watch a 2-5 minute video then read an entire blog post.
  • Video allows you more flexibility in conveying your message compared to writing a blog post.
  • Videos allow you the opportunity to create fresh content more rapidly.
  • Videos rank high in the search engines.
  • Videos add diversity and a breath of fresh air to your content.
  • The amount of traffic can be endless and best of all once the video is done it does the work for you over and over again.

When it comes to video marketing you must take action.

It may be intimidating at first to get up and create your videos, but with practice you become better and more comfortable.

The main thing is just doing them.

A lot of times people let many other factors deter them from doing video marketing and never gain the courage to do it at all.

They come up with excuses of why they can’t post a video like “my hair isn’t right, I don’t know what to say, people aren’t going to like them, I’m not good enough.”

You must not let anything stop you from doing your videos.

Video marketing can be an important asset to your online business.

Do what you need to do to get over any fears you may have and you will quickly learn the benefits of remaining consistent with your efforts when you see the traffic it can bring over time.

I’ve done videos months ago that still bring in traffic daily to my blog.

If you don’t want to submit your videos to multiple sites just start with the biggest, YouTube.

YouTube gets an enormous amount of visitors each day.

You should find your niche and redirect some of that traffic to your blog or website through video marketing.

Facebook is also an awesome resource to use because videos can quickly go viral with the help of your Facebook friends.

Your videos can easily get shared and you can also post your videos to different groups associated with your niche.

Video marketing should definitely be added to your repertoire if you want to improve success in your business.

Your videos don’t have to be extravagant, but make sure they are genuine and informative.

If done correctly video marketing can be the only source you need to get the word out about your business.

Best Wishes!

Search Engine

Search Engine Traffic Tips

I’ve been away from my blog for a little over a week now.

It’s been tough for me to get blogging done with internet connection issues, family issues, and other obligations in my life.

My mind has really been going thinking about not being able to post and do the things I enjoy most when it comes to blogging and growing my blog business.

The one thing I’ve learned through all this is that the work that I’ve put in up to this point is paying off.

Thinking that not being able to blog has hurt me I have come to realize that it hasn’t been that bad.

I’ve continued to get a steady flow of traffic to my website through the search engine and also through other traffic resources I’ve been working on.

Finally being able to get back to blogging I feel energized, refreshed, and motivated to get back to business.

Today I wanted to discuss why it’s important to focus on getting your website or articles ranked in the search engine for traffic and some things you can do to improve your search engine rankings.

Why is Search Engine Optimization Important?

Search engine optimization is important to your website because it allows you the ability to gain visitors organically.

The people that come to your website through the search engine are usually targeted and looking for what you have to offer.

This is huge when it comes to gaining subscribers and making sales – big or small.

Good SEO practices improve the user experience, as well as the flow of your website.

Using good practices allow you to rank much higher in the search engines improving your credibility and authority in your niche.

This goes a long way when it comes to separating yourself from the competition.

If you and another website are offering the same products and services, the website that is optimized the best is more likely to have more customers than the other.

This can also lead to more sales if your copy and funnel is set up correctly.

3 Tips to Gain Success With Search Engine Optimization

If you want success with search engine optimization you will want to focus on a few strategies that will allow you the best results to improve your business.

Here are three tips to focus on:

1) Monitor your competitors

Focusing on what other successful people are doing in your niche is vital.

If competitors are making changes to their websites they have probably discovered a new strategy to improve in the search engine.

Make sure you are keeping up with the latest trends and strategies in your market.

That doesn’t mean jump on every new thing that is going on, but it does mean be aware of changes and do the proper research needed to figure out if they will be beneficial to you or not.

Never get comfortable in your business.

If you’ve been doing things that have been working by all means stick to that, but always be on the lookout for ways to improve and take your business to new levels.

2) Study your traffic logs

Studying your traffic is important.

You should always know where your traffic is coming from and how much you are getting.

If it’s a particular keyword then make more articles surrounding that keyword and leverage it.

Continue looking for keywords that don’t have much competition, but have a decent amount of searches and figure out how to get ranked for those keywords.

If you can rank high in the search engine for low competition keywords with reasonable traffic you can get visitors flowing to your website like clockwork.

You can locate your logs through your web hosting service or use tools like Google Analytics to give you an idea of the kind of traffic you’re getting daily.

3) Try to inspire sales

If you’ve reached a point where traffic is flowing and you feel comfortable with your SEO efforts you want to figure out a way to convert those visitors into sales.

With the right tools and copy in place you can create an income for yourself.

The main thing you want to be doing is capturing your visitors and sending them through a sales funnel.

You can do this through an autoresponder that has an email newsletter series.

Give your subscribers an ebook, video series, or a list of tools that can help them improve their business or solve a problem.

Don’t allow your SEO efforts to go to waste.

Turn your traffic into sales.

When it comes to running a successful business this should be your end result.

Keep these points in mind and you can have success in your business in no time.

Start using these strategies immediately in your business.

Your list building efforts should be started on day one.

Once that traffic starts flowing free or paid you can already have your funnel set to turn those leads into sales.

Best Wishes!

Free Marketing Methods

Free Marketing Methods to Generate Targeted Traffic

Free Marketing MethodsWhen it comes to having a blog or website generating traffic is vital.

With no traffic you have nobody reading your work and no opportunity to make sales.

This is a big problem if you’re looking to have a business that creates freedom for your life.

You need traffic if you want to succeed online, but with that traffic comes patience if you’re in a position like I was when I first started online.

I had no extra money to use for paid traffic strategies.

This left me in a bind, but I didn’t give up.

I figured out alternate ways to get traffic, which lead me down a new path of learning free marketing strategies to generate free targeted traffic to my blog and squeeze pages.

While free methods take more time to build your business as opposed to paid methods, they work extremely well once the ground work is laid and you begin to get a constant flow of traffic.

The past week has been hectic for me and I hadn’t had much time to do a blog post.

With the free marketing methods I’ve used to build my business the flow of traffic to my blog has stayed consistent because of the previous work I’ve put into my blog.

Traffic flows to my website whether I do work or not because of the groundwork I’ve laid with free marketing methods.

Eventually you will get to a point where you are getting sales consistently and doing it on autopilot.

It all starts with a foundation.

If you have the time free marketing methods can outperform paid advertising methods in terms of generating traffic.

I know this from experience.

There are all kinds of free marketing methods that you can use to take your business to the next level.

Look at all the different options that you have at your disposal.

It’s phenomenal!

Free Marketing MethodsYou have article marketing, video marketing, forum marketing, blogging. search engine marketing, blog commenting, email marketing, affiliate programs, and many more.

These are some of the free methods I use and they have worked wonders for my business.

By taking the time to combine all of the free strategies you can create a ton of traffic daily for your business.

When you get to a point where you are making sales you can use that money to put back into your business to generate customers through paid traffic methods.

Just think of the traffic you can get using both free and paid strategies.

With that being said you have to start somewhere.

You must have a plan and work that plan.

Not everything has to be done quickly, if you build a foundation first you have something to fall back on if things don’t go according to plan.

With free marketing methods you learn more about yourself and how to run your business effectively from the ground up.

You have that foundation built.

If you make mistakes from using paid traffic methods and lose the money you have in your budget you still know how to get traffic to your site free.

Your business doesn’t have to completely suffer until you get the money to generate more traffic to make the necessary tweaks to generate sales.

This is why free marketing methods should be a part of your marketing strategy in the beginning.

My 3 Biggest Free Marketing Methods That Generate Consistent Traffic

1. Youtube VideosFree Marketing Methods

YouTube has been one of my best sources of traffic.

If you stay consistent with posting videos and learning how to search engine optimize your videos in YouTube you can generate lots of traffic in a short period of time.

YouTube is one of the largest visited sites on the internet.

What a wonderful source to get traffic back to your website by doing videos that people find informative and helpful.

You can link your videos back to your website or post and get people to check out your site to see what you have going on.

I’ve generated thousands of views just off one YouTube video before.

Your videos don’t have to be extra long.

I usually do videos anywhere in between 2-5 minutes.

Just make sure you are being yourself in the videos and people will resonate with them.

As time goes on you can learn how to edit and add things to your videos to make them look much better.

Just don’t be afraid to post.

Free Marketing Methods2. Blog Commenting

Blog Commenting has been a fulfilling traffic generating method to use.

Since I’ve started going to other blogs in the community it has increased my traffic, improved my comments, and has grown my list in a fairly quick time period.

Blog commenting takes a lot of time going to other people’s blog, reading their work, and making quality blog comments.

Two things I’ve learned is that you actually learn much better that way to improve your blog.

And you actually create genuine relationships and friendships with other people in your niche that can assist you with leveraging your business if you are sharing each other’s work.

You should take a block of time out of your day to frequent some of the most active bloggers in your niche space and begin building a relationship with them through blog commenting.

You will begin to see a spike in your traffic and interaction in no time.

Free Marketing Methods3. Search Engine Optimization

SEO has been a journey, but slowly has been building loads of traffic to my blog daily.

It’s a strategy that I have used to build a strong foundation by getting my blog posts ranked in the search engines for views.

When people type in a specific keyword in a search engine they get to my website because my articles where one of the one’s that popped up in their search.

This is nothing, but free targeted traffic!

It has took much time to get my articles ranked in the search engines, but has been well worth it because once the work is done it’s done.

I am constantly looking for better and more effective ways to improve my SEO efforts and it has been a rewarding task seeing the many people that frequent my blog due to the SEO techniques I’ve learned to apply in my business.

If you’re looking to take your business to new heights you should be learning and applying free marketing methods into your business as often as possible.

By using free methods you give yourself the ability to get a constant flow of traffic without having to pay.

With paid traffic you get a flow of traffic only for the amount of traffic you can pay for.

With free marketing methods you can get a consistent flow of traffic for a longer period of time.

In my opinion you should be learning how to apply free marketing methods to your business before moving to paid methods.

They’ve done great things for my business and I’m sure it can for yours as well.

Best Wishes!

Blog Commenting

Becoming a Blog Commenting Extraordinaire

I’ve been on a blog commenting blitz lately and boy oh boy is it working.

I’ve spent time really putting in the effort to check out other people’s blogs, read their content, and make real genuine comments.

I set aside anywhere from 1-2 hours daily to frequent these blogs and give my input.

Not only have I learned so much through the stories of other bloggers, I genuinely enjoy reading about other people’s tips, successes, and failures with online business.

And even better I have also seen a boost in my daily traffic to my blog.

All through blog commenting.

It’s amazing the results got so far since really going hard to implement this strategy into my daily routine.

If you have a blog or website one of the best ways to increase your traffic should be done through blog commenting.

Experimenting With Blog Commenting

Through different forums I heard a lot of people express how well the strategy works to improve a blog’s performance.

Initially, experimenting with it as a link building tactic on high traffic blogs I began blog commenting mainly for SEO purposes.

On the days I performed these link building tactics I began seeing spikes of traffic to my website.

Not only did my traffic increase, but people were actually commenting on my blog and leaving engaging blog comments.

You see, if you comment on do follow blogs you have to enter your name, email, and website.

When you leave a comment on someone else’s blog it gets linked back to your website.

By leaving quality and engaging comments on the posts people generally want to learn about you and come to check out your blog.

Not only do you borrow other bloggers traffic, you also increase the strength of your blog in the search engines through building quality backlinks.

Blog Commenting With A Purpose

There are many bloggers online who blog just to make money.

They post links for affiliate products all over the web and write inconsistent posts while never taking the time to interact and build relationships with PEOPLE.

One thing I’ve learned about blogging is the importance of networking.

Blogging done correctly is a people business built through relationships.

Really being interested in people and showing them that you care through solving problems and creating lasting friendships.

If you come into this business only focused on money I guarantee you will not succeed.

The money is a result of the work and value you provide to your market.

Building the Right Relationships

If you’re going to spend time on blog commenting then do it the right way.

Bloggers appreciate it when you participate on their blogs.

You help to build their community and many bloggers will often return the favor if they feel your comments are genuine.

They should be informative, from the heart, and respectful.

By doing this you can create relationships with bloggers can that allow you the opportunity to do guest posts or even get a mentor.

You should always be learning, growing, and implementing as a blogger.

Surrounding yourself with those who’ve been there or are going through the same journey as you creates success.

I feel so motivated after speaking with like-minded individuals in my niche.

If you’re serious about taking your blog and business to the next level then blog commenting should be a part of your arsenal.

Take some time to spend throughout your day going to other people’s blogs to comment.

You can easily do a Google search on blogs in your niche and begin checking out the one’s you enjoy most to do some blog commenting.

Take a trial run at it and see how much your business improves over time.

Blog Traffic Tips to Grow Your Business

If you have a blog you need a constant flow of blog traffic.

There’s no point in having a blog if you don’t have any visitors coming to your site.

When your blog becomes established you don’t have to spend as much time on it, but in the beginning it’s going to take some work to get it going.

Your objective should be to establish your blog as a great source of information that get people coming to back your blog consistently.

With this, you establish a loyal group of followers who can assist you with getting more blog traffic by sharing your information on social media and word-of-mouth.

This is going to take time, but in the meantime there are other ways to get blog traffic.

Today I wanted to discuss some ways you can get blog traffic to your website easily and effectively.

5 Ways to Increase Blog Traffic

1. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SEO is a process that deals with optimizing your blog so that it ranks better in the search engines.

This method should be use when writing your blog posts because it’s an awesome source for generating free traffic.

Your blog posts should be written around keywords that people search for on the internet daily.

It requires some research, but once you have a list of keywords you can right posts that are search engine optimized fairly quickly.

SEO is complex and requires a lot of different techniques and strategies that you can learn over time.

To keep it simple for the sake of this post you should focus on creating exceptional content around relevant keywords.

If you have a WordPress blog the “All In One SEO Pack” plugin should be downloaded immediately.

It will help you with writing optimized posts.

2. Blog Commenting

One of the best ways to get blog traffic is through blog commenting.

I use the method daily in my business commenting on different other people’s blogs.

This helps in two ways.

First it gets readers of other blogs to check out your content on your website and second it creates backlinks to help your site in the search engines.

Make sure you are leaving valuable comments on other people’s blog that is engaging and relevant.

Take some time each day to actually read other bloggers posts in your niche and make comments that are useful, informative, and helpful.

If you show people you have something willing to offer they will check out your blog to learn more about you.

3. Forum Posting

Similar to blog commenting you can get blog traffic by posting on forums in your niche.

Posting on forums gives you the opportunity to get your comments seen by people interested in your niche.

People see your posts and then click to check out your blog if you have it linked to your forum signature.

I get tons of visits from commenting and asking questions of different niche specific forums.

Not only does it bring me traffic, but it also builds links to my website making it strong in the search engines.

By regularly posting using this method you can build relationships with people and turn them into regulars on your blog.

4. Social Media

Another source of my blog traffic comes from social media.

Facebook and twitter do wonders for supplying me with a nice source of traffic.

By linking your blog posts to your social media sites you can get friends and family to share them.

This will bring you a steady flow of traffic.

And if you post goes viral who knows how long you can have a flow of traffic?

I’ve known some bloggers get massive flows of traffic for months just because of one blog post that went crazy over the internet.

Don’t overlook social media.

5. Video Marketing

Using video is a great way to get blog traffic.

Many people enjoy watching videos and like to see the face behind the business.

You can use this method to increase your readership and become more relatable to viewers.

People will naturally want to check out your blog.

In your videos you can do a call-to-action on the end to check out your blog and subscribe.

This goes a long way in building credibility with your readers.

Video marketing isn’t difficult, but it will take some practice in building up your confidence to get on video.

Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

The more videos you do the more comfortable you’ll get and the better you will become.

These are five methods you can use to instantly gain more blog traffic.

You can master one of perform all five each day.

It will do wonders for increasing your traffic and get your business going in the right direction.

Remain consistent with your efforts and good things will happen.

The best part about these methods is they are all free.

If you can master these you can combine your efforts with paid methods and take your business to new heights.

Traffic

Generating Traffic to Your Squeeze Page

You’ve decided to make an attempt at internet marketing and have done your research.

After reviewing a few tutorials on how to build your list you are ready to go.

You get hosting, purchase a domain name, build a squeeze page, set up your autoresponder and are ready to go with your free offer.

The only problem is you don’t know how to get people in front of your squeeze page.

Today I want to discuss some ways to get people in front of your offer and potentially getting them on your mailing list.

3 Ways to Squeeze Page Traffic

Solo Ads

If you are looking to generate quick traffic, paid ads are the way to go.

One of the best sources of paid traffic are solo ads.

Solo ads can help you take your email advertising to the next level by driving extremely targeted traffic to your page.

You can build your list quickly with this method.

Also, if you find quality solo providers your list should be composed of quality subscribers.

It will take some research and a bit of trial and error finding good providers, but when you do it’s one of the quickest and easiest ways to build up your email list.

FB Ads

Facebook ads are another paid traffic source that you can use much the same as solo ads.

With Facebook ads you can get clicks pretty cheap if you market right.

It’s all about pinpointing your target audience and figuring out how much you are willing to pay per click.

FB ads will take some trial and error with tweaking the right campaign for you business needs.

Once you get it to where you want, you can virtually run it on autopilot and get clicks for very cheap.

Be sure you review the policy on FB first though to ensure you aren’t violating anything and you should be well on your way to building a high quality responsive list.

Youtube

I talk so much about Youtube, but it is ultimately the second largest search engine on the net next to Google.

If you are comfortable with doing videos Youtube is a great resource, and free way to get quality traffic to your squeeze page.

People enjoy seeing the face behind the product or service provided so you instantly satisfy a need and build credibility at the same time.

Youtube has allowed me to connect with so many people just from doing a few videos.

Content is very important.

Your content should be informative and genuine.

Make sure you end each video with a call to action and provide a link for them to click to get to your squeeze page.

Do not ask for a lot of information from your responders, just email and name.

Keep it short and simple and people will respond.

There are countless ways to generate traffic to your squeeze page.

These are just a few effective ways that can get you traffic quickly and easily.

Start off small and work your way up to bigger and better once you get comfortable with each method.

Handle one traffic source at a time and you will be generating traffic for your business in no time.

Master it and then move on to the next.

Best Wishes!

Article Marketing

Using Article Marketing to Drive Traffic

Article marketing is an awesome way to drive traffic to your website if used properly.

It can be used as a form of marketing and advertising by which you write articles and submit them to article marketplaces.

The articles should be niche related and can be used to redirect traffic back to your main site.

Article marketing is a great way to get high quality traffic for free.

Many people join article marketing directories daily to promote products or services and acquire information.

These directories can be used to grow your business by leaps and bounds quickly and for free.

Tips for Article Marketing

Write 400-600 word articles- Keep your articles within the 400-600 word range. People tend to like to read the shorter articles that are information packed and to the point. If you can stay in the range you will keep peoples attention and attract more engaging readers.

Interesting Titles- Try to make your titles interested and SEO focused. If you have a keyword you are working off, which you should, it should be in the title and strategically placed throughout the article to help you in the search engines. Try to make your titles information focused and stand out from the competition.

Remain Consistent- Post as often as possible to show how serious you are about your craft. Engage your readers and comment on other peoples posts. Spend time daily reading other articles and exchanging ideas among members of the directories.

Benefits of Article Marketing

1) Free Targeted Leads

If you are looking for a way to get organic traffic article marketing is a good way to get free leads that are targeted to your niche.

If you are writing niche specific articles on topics people are interested in they will respond well to your posts.

Your articles will give you the ability to build trust with your subscribers as long as you are providing them with quality content.

Your objective should be to convert these people into raving fans.

The more articles you post the more people will see you as an expert and will want to join your list and purchase products from you over time.

There are many directories out there to choose from.

Make sure you join the ones that have a steady flow of traffic and have good interaction between members.

Some examples of directories you can join include:

www.ezinearticles.com

www.goarticles.com

www.directoryofezines.com

www.articlealley.com

2) Improve Search Engine Rank

By utilizing the power of article marketing you can also boost your search engine rankings.

It all comes down to getting your articles out there and building that foundation on the web with back linking, keywords, shares, and traffic.

Over time your site will gain recognition and your popularity will increase gradually bringing you more quality free traffic.

This isn’t an easy way of generating traffic for your blog/website, but the traffic will be quality organic traffic.

People that are totally looking for what you have to offer.

It will be time consuming compared to most other strategies, but is a great strategy for building a strong foundation for your business that will generate leads gradually over a longer period of time as opposed to paid traffic strategies.

Best Wishes!

Backlinks

Backlinks: A Way to Increase Web Traffic

Backlinks are the building blocks of good search engine optimization and are excellent to use when building a website.

If you are looking for a way to improve how your website shows up in the search engines, backlinking from other websites to yours is a great way to get your search ranking up.

If you currently do not have any backlinks to your site or aren’t building any here are some basics to get started.

What are Backlinks?

Backlinks are hyperlinks that are directed to your website from another website.

You might have links from a webpage on your site that point to another site or outside links from another webpage that point to your site.

Links that come from another web source to yours are considered backlinks because they direct back to your site once clicked.

They can be used as a means to improve site authority in the search engines or as a way to improve incoming traffic to your page.

Why are they Important?

The number of links a website has is a good indicator of its popularity and its importance with search engines.

Google, the most popular search engine on the web today, gives higher rankings to websites with a larger number of backlinks giving the site more credibility.

It’s important to build links to your website via credible sources because it shows that your website provides quality content that is relevant.

It’s not enough just to have a bunch of links from sites that aren’t of any value in the search engines, but from sites that are credible and are of similar content.

Your links should come from relevant websites that provide quality content.

Other blog site, press releases, and social media sites are places to link with.

Paying for links is not recommended because there is no way for you to control where the links are coming from and how fast they are being linked.

It would seem pretty suspect if you have a brand new site with 50,000 backlinks all done in a week.

Done this way search engines may end up banning your site if they feel like you are manipulating the process.

It’s best to build your backlinks slowly and over time.

Having quality backlinks to your site will attract quality visitors.

There are many strategies that can be used to link your website with others.

Some have been discussed here, but there are many other ways that can be used to backlink your site.

Figure out which ones work best for you and what you are trying to accomplish with your site.

Keeping track of your links is helpful to know which sites are linking back to you for any tweaking or research to continue improving your rankings.

Backlinks should be a priority in your search engine optimization efforts.

It’s going to take some work, but shouldn’t be rushed and should be done over time to gradually increase your rankings and improve the quality of your traffic.

Keep track of which techniques work best for you and continue to improve on those and learn new techniques over time.

Remain consistent with your link building campaign and over time you will see vast improvements traffic.

Best Wishes!

Increase Traffic

Increase Traffic Using Video

If you don’t know by now Youtube is an AWESOME resource that can be used to increase traffic to your website.

It can be used to drive tons of targeted and free traffic too if used properly.

If you are not using Youtube as a source to increase traffic then you are definitely missing out on another way to generate leads and increase your presence on the web.

Learning how to upload, market, and provide video content will quickly give you another vehicle to market yourself properly, giving you a strong foundation.

If you want your business to be up and running for the long run here are some strategies that can be used to increase traffic to your site using videos:

Ways to Increase Traffic

1) Make Consistent Video Content

Making consistent video content will increase your subscriber list on Youtube.

People will literally be waiting to see your videos and learn from you.

Make sure your videos are filled with genuine and quality content.

Your objective is to create raving fans and fans want content.

You won’t have to do much promoting from there and you also have an opportunity for your videos to go viral once uploaded.

People will share or suggest that their friends check out your videos if they are interesting.

If you have an online business you should be using videos to promote your content and Youtube should be one of your marketing venues.

Next…

2) Upload to Facebook

You can combine your efforts of video marketing by uploading your Youtube videos to your Facebook page.

This gives another opportunity for your videos to be seen and shared by people.

Both of these strategies are free and can be highly effective and lucrative over a long period of time.

Once again consistency is important.

People love to see content and they love to see something from you daily or at least frequently.

Your friends and family can help promote your content and if you have a little money to spend you can learn how to market your content with Facebook ads.

If you’re not using Facebook to promote your business then you are missing out.

Lastly…

3) Share with your List

If you have an email list, which you should, you can share your videos with your list.

Your list will enjoy this because they get a chance to see you in the flesh.

And if you are keeping your videos within the 2-5 min range people are more likely to watch the entire video.

It doesn’t take up much of their time and they can check it out on the go.

This method is very effective with improving your relationship with your list and increasing sales.

You can also redirect them to your website, which can also increase traffic and build your brand.

These strategies are a great way to increase traffic to your website/blog.

Your goal should be to upload one video a day with content pertaining to your niche.

Most people are afraid of doing videos because they are afraid of making a mistake, but if you remain consistent you will get better.

Your objective is to get traffic flowing through all resources.

By combining your efforts you can get a steady flow and increase traffic across the board.

Best Wishes!

The answer…GIVE THEM SOMETHING FREE!!!

Studies have shown that people are more willing to join your subscriber list if you have something to offer them free.

People enjoy value and will be ready to provide you with their personal information if they feel like they are getting something in return for it.

I’m going to share with you some free offers that you can use to promote anything and get subscribers to your email list.

If it’s a blog, squeeze page, forum, social media, or your very own site these methods work.

Free offers have been, and probably forever will be, a sure way to get targeted subscribers to your list.

After that it’s your duty to provide them with massive value and give them the necessary solutions to their problems.

There are many things that can be offered for free, but today the focus will be on a free report, software download, and video series.

Recommended “Freebies” to Offer Subscribers:

1) Free Report

A free report does not have to be too extensive, but should have detailed information for their wants and needs.

Most reports range in between 10-30 pages.

Once your report is done, all you have to do is drive traffic to your website and make sure you have multiple ways to show them your offer.

For example, pop up boxes, header tabs, or widget tabs with your offer for a free download.

Images also work well to help increase subscribers downloading your report.

The importance of your report is to help build your credibility and put you in position as an authority figure.

Make sure the information is precise and to the point.

2) Software Download

Not all people are interested in reading a free report.

A software download could include an MP3 for listening to a report or it could include software to improve their business.

Also, if you are providing them with an MP3 download it gives them the opportunity to listen on the go.

Images are also good here because they give the feel of  a complete product that they are getting for free.

The objective is to get the subscriber to opt-in to your list so making them feel like they are getting something for nothing is important.

3) Video Series

One of the most effective methods to get new subscribers is providing them with an informative video series.

Videos can be broken down into a 3-5 part series giving the subscriber a little bit of information in each one that leads up to the next.

This is a great way to build up a relationship, show them who your are, and stretch out the information over a reasonable period of time with sending a video daily or every other day.

Once you figure out which method works best for you, you could incorporate all three into your autoresponder sequence leading up to your offer.

These three methods can can be offered on your blog, capture pages, forums, or website to get more subscribers.

Anywhere that people are looking for what you have to offer.

Your duty is to make sure that it is beneficial to them and can improve their problems.

If you can fix their problem you will be able to help someone out and potentially gain a customer for life.
