OK, 2014 has arrived. Normally it is the habit of many people to make some resolutions for the New Year. And, while many people make plans for their self-improvement, some others opt to make resolutions about their business. Generally, this involves a resolution to increase revenue for their online business.
If you fall in this category–and I don’t see why don’t you–have you determined how are you going to increase your online revenue?
The trick is to drive more traffic to your Internet business(es). As you know by now, more traffic generally means more money.
Without talking about the type of website you have, your success resides heavily on getting as much traffic as possible. But like many online business owners, you have probably exhausted many sources for increasing traffic.
Now, I’ve found three very profitable methods to direct more traffic to your site.
Therefore, if you want to increase webtraffic–and revenue and earnings–in 2014, take advantage of each of the following traffic-building techniques:
1. Utilizing Data Feeds.
What would you say if you could create hundreds, even thousand of pages of legitimate content? And do it all automatically?
Well, with data feeds, that is entirely possible.
If you are not familiar with this concept, a data feed is a file that contains some kind of content; forn instance: a list of products, descriptions and prices for individual items that are sold by a company; a series of articles related to one concept… In a sentence, everything that somebody can put online.
So, with a data feed, you could potentially create a specific content page for each product. So, for example, if an affiliate program has thousands of products, then you can create thousands of pages of quality content. And, as they say, the more content usually leads to more traffic.
Data feeds are great for getting natural search engine traffic because they list specific products and/or content that people are looking for. If you can find a data feed that is related to your specific website, then you can easily generate more natural traffic for your online business.
2. eBooks with the Potential to go Viral.
This is another tool that can dramatically increase your website traffic: a viral ebook, report or manual. Basically, and most of the time, a viral ebook is a file in PDF format that people send to their contacts, which contains your marketing message. It has the potential to become viral because everyone that receives the ebook is given a reason and the permission to pass along your material to their friends and contacts.
Before starting a viral marketing campaign, it is important to create a reason why people will want to share your marketing vehicle. Some of the best reasons can include simple greed or a desire to provide entertaining information to their friends. If you can develop a hook that will take advantage of either of these, then it will be easy to create a successful viral marketing campaign.
What I generally do is create a special 5 to 10 page report on a specific topic. Then I find an affiliate program that is related to the topic. Third, I create a mechanism where people can easily brand this ebook with their own affiliate link.
This type of viral ebook is valuable because you can place a mini advertisement or sponsorship on every copy. In addition, you can let the reader know that he or she can make money by offering this viral ebook. As a result, there is a chance that every person that reads the book will click over to your site.
3. Publish a Blog (or Several!).
By now, you have probably heard about the power of blogs. If you haven’t created one, then you should use the New Year to take advantage of this traffic pulling tool.
With blogs, you are providing your audience with fresh new content about your topic. People love to read them, because most blogs contain new information in an entertaining and easy-to-read format.
The best part about blogs is how much they are valued by search engines. The majority of search engines consider any information on a blog to be important current news, so they pay special attention to articles listed there. As a result, you can use blogs to drive a larger portion of traffic to your Internet business.
For 2014 you should make a resolution to get more traffic to your site. By implementing these three tools into your marketing mix, you will discover that your web traffic (and income) will dramatically increase.
