5 Ways to Get a Flood of Targeted Visitors

Just a few months ago I received a mail from one of my subscribers describing the launching of his new site. He was really very excited and thought that this site would really bring him a handful of money. When I visited his site I was also surprised by the creative design, easy and quick navigation, graphics, etc. but what I came to know by his second email after some time that he is not earning a single penny.

In fact, he had not earned near the amount that he spent on developing the site. He was really very upset and sounds dull. What's the reason is that his mind blowing site not earn a single dollar? The answer is his site didn't get targeted visitors which really want to buy the products he is offering.

The backbone of any internet-based business is Traffic. Traffic is the first need for the success of any e-commerce business. If you don’t have traffic on your website, you can’t make even a single penny, no matter how beautiful and attractive your site is. Even if you have the best product in the world but don’t have traffic, you can’t make any sales.

Traffic is the most essential thing to a successful e-commerce business. Every book you will find about internet marketing would always include the importance of generating traffic.

If you are reading this article, I am sure you already have a site and you are not getting enough traffic that you're supposed to be getting.

To help you out in generating more traffic for your site, here are some ways to get a flood of targeted traffic.

1. Link exchange with similar sites

Link exchange with similar sites is a great way to increase traffic to your site because both sites get benefited. The more you exchange links with different sites, the more traffic you’ll get. One thing you should remember that always exchange links with compatible sites, not competitor sites.

2. Write Articles and submit to article directories

This is a sure and proven method for targeted traffic. Writing articles and submitting to article directories can give massive exposure to your site. Not only your site’s page rank and search engine ranking will increase, you will also become as an expert in your field. You can write articles yourself or get it written by freelance writers for a small fee.

3. Start your own Newsletter

If you want lifetime traffic to your site, it’s time to start your own newsletter. It’s a proven fact that only 5% of visitors buy from any site at the first visit. If you get them in your opt-in list, you can follow up with valuable content and they will come back again and again to your site.

4. Participate in Online Communities and Forums

Forums and online communities can become a huge source of traffic to your site. It requires only your time and nothing else. All you have to do is sharing your knowledge and expertise. It’ll also build your reputation as an expert and people always want to work with experts.

5. Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is the fastest way of getting traffic. Do you know what the reason behind the grand success of Hotmail is? It’s viral marketing.

Viral marketing allows you to spread the word about your company and product without any costs or low costs only. You can create a short report or tiny software and allow others to pass it to their friends and relatives. You can also attach your link to a funny video or entertaining game.

Just follow these simple and easy to follow tips and get your site flooded with traffic. Not only traffic but better say targeted traffic which really wants to buy your product as they need it.
