The best way in my opinion overall for increasing web site traffic is to build an opt in email list. Building an o-p-t in email (which means they sign up for your emailing list by will, as I do not endorse spam whatsoever) list will allow you at the click of a button to speak to 1000's of people who want to know more about you or your product you are offering. Building the email list is the all important tool of any online or internet marketer and it is one of the most useful ways to round up some good traffic of people who will potentially buy from you at some point. They liked you well enough to sign up for your email newsletter in the first place right? Increasing web site traffic with your email list is easy and these few steps will show you how to explode your website traffic once your list is built up. Don't panic building the list isn't as long and time consuming as it sounds and I'll show you the ways to make it much easier.
Step #1. Its easy to increase web site traffic. First you are going to need a program that is going to be able to capture someones email when they sign up for your newsletter. Do not use ho tmail or any of the free email options. First off doing it that way will be more time consuming and secondly they do not have the proper measures in place to allow you to build an effective email list as well as look extremely unprofessional. You'll want to sign up for a program online such as aweber that can capture and put everything on auto pilot for you. They do everything from hosting your newsletters to allow you to set up easy to use send outs through auto responders. You can custom the time that your emails send out and have an unlimited number of email lists and your lists can swell to as big as you want! So the $20 is worth it, doing this all on your own is a huge pain and its better to spend your time focusing on your business not the technically side. Also building the actually web form is all done automatically by Aweber you simply type in what you want they generate the code you copy and paste into your website So all the hard work is done for you.
Step#2. Now that you have the program you'll need to get you started building an email list for your website its time to come up with something to grab your readers attention that will make them sign up for your email list. My favorite technique is using a free offer when they sign up. For instance on this website I offer Free Traffic Tips to all those that sign up for my newsletter. This allows me to send out emails to everyone on my list periodically. You may offer a free report, or a free e-book - just make sure that is has value. Not only should the free offer, offer some type of value to your customer but so should your messages you send out to their email boxes after they sign up. If you try to sell them something during every email you'll never be increasing web site traffic to your web site because they'll be un subscribing to your newsletter left and right. The key is to treat your newsletter signs up the way you'd want to be treated, with respect and with value rich content.
Step#3. Setup your opt in email newsletter to go on autopilot that will send a new message out every so often (as many days apart as you'd like). Or if you'd rather just type new messages and not have it on auto that is fine as well you just want to stay in contact with your list every week or 2. Just be sure not to over do it by sending them an email every day unless you offered them a course that needs to go out daily. Again irritating them will just leave no other option but un subscribing by hundreds of your list members , which would prove rather ineffective when trying to increase web site traffic. This is probably the easiest way to get traffic on a weekly basis. Recently with this technique I captured 4,000 email sign ups for my newsletter in under 7 days. Talk about a way of increasing web site traffic as every 7 days I'll send an email out to my list and have 2,000-3,000 extra web site hits in a couple of days. When your list later swells to over 10,000 people or more thats when people really start coming in. Then there is the 50,000 mark..... you See where this is going....
Now no matter where you go you have a targeted list of people stored online that you can reach at the click of a button. You'll start to see a huge increase in your web site traffic and stats and should see a nice increase in sales as well.
