"My 2007 Top 10 Traffic Sources"

Once a year I like to examine my website stats to get a handle on my best traffic sources. During the past 12 months my websites have had more traffic and generated more sales than any of my previous 10 years in business. These sites include...

www.bizweb2000.com
www.make-a-living-online.com
www.ezWebBusinessBuilder.com
www.work-at-home-site.com

But it's not the volume of traffic that supports my business, it is the QUALITY of the traffic.

As a marketer who spends nearly nothing on advertising, I pride myself on utilizing only the most effective low-cost and no-cost traffic sources available online, just as I've done since 1996.

Today I'd like to share those traffic sources with you so you can see what is working on the web these days. I think you'll find this list interesting. And who knows, you may even find a new way to get targeted traffic to your websites...

1. Joint Venture Partners

Over the last year, joint venture partners have sent more than 250,000 high-quality visitors to my sites. (Yes, that's a quarter of a million visitors!) This traffic alone has resulted in more than $300,000 in sales.

What is a joint venture partner?

Simply put, it is a business in the same or a related niche as yours, that agrees to promote your products or services. In most cases, you in turn, promote their products or services. Hence the name, joint venture.

During the last year I've taken a more pro-active approach to teaming up with related businesses in joint ventures. The result has been phenomenal. Not only have I seen a sharp increase in sales, I forged new alliances with some of the web's top marketing companies. These relationships invariably result in increased profits not only this year, but for years to come.

So what do you need to start profiting from joint ventures at your website?

A. a product or service of your own.

B. an affiliate program management solution (I use us  webbusinesswizard.)

C. A commitment to contact potential JV partners on a regular basis

If you're not doing joint ventures in your business, what are you waiting for?
 

2. Affiliates

My number two traffic source this year is my affiliate force. As usual, my affiliates sent thousands of visitors a day to my sites. While my joint venture partners mentioned above are included in this affiliate force, they are just one part of the entire force of thousands.

If you have not started an affiliate program for your best products and services, I highly recommend you do so.

Although there are some costs involved with starting your own affiliate program, it is well worth it. Justify the expense by telling yourself that you are hiring thousands of sales people and paying them only when they sell. A web based affiliate program is just that.

A few secrets to success with my affiliate programs include paying decent commission rates (I pay 40% commissions), paying on time every month and offering lots of tools and tips for my affiliates. I also actively seek out potential super-affiliates (JV-Partners!) on a regular basis. Like with any marketing strategy, a pro-active approach works best!
 

3. Repeat Visitors

A perennial, top traffic generator at my sites is "repeat visitors." You know, people coming to my site who have already been there before.

The importance of getting repeat visitors is something you used to hear marketing experts talk about a lot. Lately, it seems that the value of repeat visitors has been overlooked. Yet repeat visitors are usually the people who end up making purchases at your site.

There are lots of ways to get these valuable repeat visitors. I get most of my repeat visitors through my follow-up autoresponders, (again, the tool I use is webbusinesswizard). I also get lots of repeat visitors through this BizWeb eGazette newsletter. I suggest you try similar techniques if you are not already getting lots of repeat visitors.


4. A Free Traffic Network

Though I've never been a big fan of start page networks or traffic exchange programs, I'm glad I tried one called TrafficSwarm. It quickly developed into a top traffic source and has remained near the top for years now.

There are lots of traffic networks to choose from on the web, and the few I had tried never impressed me. But TrafficSwarm now delivers hundreds of highly targeted visitors a day to my sites.

I now have a PRO account and at just thirty bucks a month it has been a self-propelled traffic (and income) generator. While it definitely works best for webmasters with large opt-in lists (telling your subscribers about it helps build your credits quickly) I'd recommend it to any webmaster on a tight budget.


5. Google

In fifth place this year, and still delivering heavy traffic to my websites is Google. The web's top search engine really delivers high-quality traffic to my sites. In fact, I've managed to help a growing number of my members grow their google traffic as well.

There are no tricks to it either. It really is as simple as taking the recommendations directly from Google's site at www.google.com/webmasters/ and then making sure your site is properly optimized with the right keywords for your niche. The rest happens by getting good links.

Note: If you have my ezWebBusinessBuilder software, you'll see exactly how I do it by watching videos 10, 13, 15 and 16.

6. Links/Content

Getting lots of incoming links to your site is important. Not only will traffic arrive via those links, but a site with lots of incoming links does better in search engines than sites with few links.

The best strategy I've used to get links, starts with content. You write articles based on your niche, post the content at your site, then share the content with other webmasters. You can do this "on-the-fly" by including a short footer after your content that tells webmasters they have permission to reprint your article at their website or in their newsletter. Be sure to let them know that they need to include a live link to your site. You may even want to tell them exactly how to link to your site. (Preferably with a short description of your site and a hyper linked keyword or two. This will help search engines determine that the sites are related and give the link more relevance.)

There are lots of websites in need of decent content. Supply it and you can benefit greatly - your links will grow continually with no effort on your part. And the beauty of this strategy is that only sites in your niche will use your content. This means your links will be high quality links from sites in the right 'neighborhood.' This goes a long way with the search engines.

If you would like to see this content-sharing link growing strategy in action, visit my marketing articles archive. There are lots of other ways to get links into your site, and you need to use your imagination. You'll discover the pro-active version of this strategy, when you get to number 10 below.


7. MSN

Yep, MSN.com is finally making a dent in the search engine market, and they are making a concerted effort to expand in that area. In fact, I've already seen traffic to my sites from search.msn.com grow steadily, especially over the past year. If you have not added your URL to their search engine, take a minute and submit your site for free.
 

8. "Sister" sites

Over the years I've put together a number of "sister" sites offering various Internet marketing information, products and services. These sites include my WebBusinessWizard.com, Afiliate-Showcase.com, JV-Alert.com and a few others.

Naturally, these sites contain references to my main sites. So as the traffic has grown to the sister sites, the traffic to my main sites has grown as well. Putting up additional websites is easy, with website templates readily available online, and web hosting fees at all-time lows.

So if you are sticking with just one site, it may be time for you to explore a bit of expansion. Just keep costs to a minimum and make sure all your sites complement each other. Before you know it you could have an entire network of sites all helping each other grow!
 

9. Yahoo!

Although this traffic source moved down the list a bit from last year, Yahoo.com still delivers quite a bit of traffic to my websites. But search has changed quite a bit recently at Yahoo, and with those changes comes cost to webmasters. If you have the budget, consider using their SponsoredSearch service. Or at the very least, use the Free URL Submission Yahoo now offers.
 

10. Article Submissions

I highly recommend this no-cost strategy to other grass-roots web marketers. The traffic you get comes quickly and keeps delivering long-term. Using this strategy can also go a long way in establishing your expertise on your topic of choice.

If you are not using article submissions, I suggest you try it. Visit an article directory and submit your best, current articles. Make sure the article is helpful and includes a small footer at the end, about the author.

Here's a short list of article directories:

http://www.ezinearticles.com
http://www.ideamarketers.com
http://www.goarticles.com

Next, you should submit your articles to ezine editors in your niche. This can expand your reach exponentially. If you do not have a list of editors in your niche, I suggest you start growing one immediately. You can start at those article directories above.

Well, that's it for today's gazette. Take a few minutes today and try a new strategy or two. You may be surprised at how much traffic you can generate to your site. And it sure beats paying for advertising!!

See ya in a few weeks...
