Hello everyone, greetings to you and best wishes. I want to give you some facts about online traffic and why you need to know this as an online entrepreneur. These are the core principles you need to learn about online traffic.
You will not hear a lot of people talking about these things, but these are the truth about traffic online.
Not all leads is created equal. There is high quality subscribers and low quality as well. Let us examine these a little closer. What makes some high quality and others low quality?
Those leads of high quality come from places like Blogging, Article Marketing, Webinars, Teleseminars, Special Reports, Video Marketing and others in these category.
The question is, why are these sources so good? They are good because they give before receiving. It is just a natural order of life, when you give something to somebody, they want to reciprocate and give your something in return. Many times that giving back is spending money with you and buying your products.
When you help people, they will help you back. People will reciprocate, they will pre-sell for you; and pre-selling is crucial. You are now promoting to a warm market, and warm market buys. A warm audience is a group of people who know you, trust you, and you have given them high quality free information.
As I said, some leads are of low quality, why is that? Low quality comes from free postings, safelists, auto posting or commenting, traffic exchanges and guaranteed visitors all create low quality.
Don’t be confused now, these sources can generate clicks, but they are low quality and they don’t normally buy from you.
Now, why are these bad for your business? Here is the reason and it’s very important that you know this. These are poor quality because the visitors they created are not interested in what you have to say or offer. They are clicking or visiting to earn traffic or get paid.
There are only two sources of traffic. Those you buy with your time and those you buy with your money. Leads you purchase is powerful, it’s available to anybody with a modest budget. They come from sources like Solo advertising, Banner advertising, Pay Per Click, especially on Facebook, very cheap. Also from Endorsed Mailings, Text Links, CPV Traffic, Your own Affiliate Programme, Re-marketing and Ads on your competitors’ sites.
There are traffic you buy with time or you earn, these come from sources like Article Marketing, Social Media, Blogging and Forums, Viral Marketing, SEO, Joint Venture, Ezine Publishing, Webinars and Teleseminars.
The secret is really in the mix, when you combine proven paid sources with proven free sources, you will create high quality traffic. These people join your list, become loyal followers, and buy the things you recommend.
They also reward you with repeat sales and recommend their friends to you.
When it comes to leads you need less than you think. The reason is this; it is not the amount of traffic that matters, but what you do with it.
Consider this scenario, if you send a 1000 visitors to a site that converts at 1%, that would mean ten sales, so you would make money today and that’s good, but then it’s over for ever.
But what if you send that same traffic to your squeeze page and 30% opted in to your list? Now you have a mailing list of 300 real prospects that raised their hands saying they are interested in what you have to offer and you can mail to them any time you want!
You will make much more by sending to your own small list many time, than blasting to the biggest list one time. It cost you nothing more than your time to send to your own list as often as you want. But is cost quite a bit to send to a big list.
With your own list, you can send for other people and have them send for you in return, and that is called a list swap or ad swap, and it is very profitable when it is done right.
You can have people approach you to do joint ventures, think about that for a minute, how cool would it be to have someone write to you and say, I would like to do a JV with you. Because now you have a list, you own your list. When you own a list, you are the category of the elite.
If you add 300 leads to your list every week, you would have 15,000 people on your list in one year. How long have you been trying to sell things on line? What if you had been adding 300 people a week to your list all that time?
If you are thinking, well, that sounds great but I have no idea how to drive traffic. Put it the correct way, you can learn how to attract leads to your site. The truth is, you cannot drive traffic like they are cows or even an automobile. You have to attract people who are interested in what you have to offer to your site.
So what are you doing with the leads you generate now? Do you send them to a sales page and hope they will buy? Or do you get them on your list and give them more reasons to buy? There are a lot of reasons why people buy products. When you are sending them follow up emails, you can cover all those reasons.
The choice is partial profits or more profits. If you send traffic to any page other than your squeeze page, you are settling for partial profits. You must learn to create maximum profits. Anyone can do this, you don’t need to have lots of money, you don’t need to be a guru, you just need to learn to do the work once and profit over and over again.
