2. Articles Marketing and Submission
This is also similar to blogging, but article different in such a way that it does not allow any adverts placement where you can place your advertisements spaces or input your opt-in form for people to subscribe but it work well to drive traffic to your squeeze page.
Article is also best use if you are into affiliate; the very quick way of earning money fast in promoting others people products and services. A good site to start posting and publishing article is ezinearticles.com, it has a good rate of traffic while other sources are articlebase.com, scribd.com, searchwarp.com and goarticles.com etc.
We can only make a link at the end of the article to direct our visitors who read the article where ever we wanted our link to direct them. If you want your link to direct them to your squeeze page or to other website, you can only use it at the end of the article in the resource box. This is reason our squeeze page needs to be attractive with a good graphic design and invite people for a click.
Articles dictate a lot of success and drive traffic to your website. In writing an article, you can also include a link in content as a sentence to refer or direct your readers to your squeeze page. When writing an article, you can mainly focus on a related to self-help, or tutorial, or tips so that it get published more often by other publishers and by that you will start to get a lot of traffic with your article to your squeeze page. When your article begin to circulate, you will start generating traffic to your squeeze page and more visitors to your website, definitely you will start making sales with your products and services.
Another reason for article is that it can really help to add value to others if they like it and if they share them with their friends, then it will start to circulate. But such article we are writing should be on a particular product we are promoting or free package we want to give out as gift so readers who read the article can know what to expect if they eventually click on your resource box links. Since the gift is free once they click through the link to see it on your squeeze page, they will eventually sign-up with their names and email address to receive and that will also allow you to contact them in the future.
You start with ezinearticles.com, it has very high rate of traffic generating when you publish your article with them while other sources are articlebase.com, scribd.com, searchwarp.com and goarticles.com etc.
3. Participating In Forum
Forum posting will help drive traffic to squeeze page but there is definitely a procedure to make this process work. However, not following the guide will get you banned from participating in the forum.
Firstly, to participate in forum, one has to become a trusted and recognized member in the forum by answering questions, participating in posting but has to be careful and following other peoples discussion. You cannot just register and burst in to start posting because forum does not work in that way. Once join you have to be participating in answering questions for a while then after a few weeks, you can start your posting putting a link of your squeeze page in the signatory. Then from there other forum members will follow to see what you are doing.
Here’s some few steps plan for anyone to establishing on any forum when joining.
Firstly, you must register for forum account and fill out your profile genuinely. Then before you start posting spend a few days to lurk for a while which simply mean to glance through some others discussion and past post in the forum in order to learn, understand other members and the tactics use.
Secondly, once you understand the forum system then start posting but don’t be eager. It is very advisable to start with a brief introduction and start to answering questions or posting some of your own questions. Once you are gaining the ground, you can start posting with your link to your website, or to any of your squeeze page.
Those two steps will help to build reputation because that’s what we need to start driving traffic to our websites and squeeze page. You need to establish yourself as an expert on the forum by showing them what you know. You just have to continue making some good posts and answering question thoroughly as much as possible so that people in the community forum will see you as an expert. The more respect you are in the community forum, the more click you’ll get on the link back to your squeeze page or website.
These elements will generate us traffic, but they will probably be a little slower than some of the more dramatic techniques discussed. The benefit is that the traffic will be targeted and mostly people willing to buy any of our products and services we offered on any of our websites.
