Generate More Traffic to your Website or Blog
In last month’s newsletter we talked about how obtaining and using good copy can propel your business from good to great in the shortest time possible of any aspect of your business.
You also received an invitation to attend our Job Fair – a place where you can mingle with nearly 300 professionally trained copywriters should you be ready to take that step. I will be attending and I hope to see some of you there!
I often have people write in to ask me for advice on marketing techniques for their blog, website, or list. So this month I thought I would share the top 3 frequently asked questions I receive along with the helpful resources I normally recommend to find a solution.
So let’s get down to it, shall we?
The first and most FAQ I get is “how can I generate more traffic to my website or blog?”
This is a great question because we all know the more eyes you have on your site = the more people you have to sell to.
To that end, my favorite article to recommend is by Brian Edmondson and you can find it here:
In it, Brian discusses a number of ways to get more visitors to your website or blog … some of them free and some of them paid. Things like:
- Article Marketing
- Joint Ventures
If you are looking to grow your list or increase your traffic, I suggest you give it a read.
The second question that I get asked a lot is “How do I find my voice in my newsletter, blog or website so that I can begin to establish a relationship with my readers where they know, like and trust me?”
And my answer leads me to an article found in the AWAI archive by none other than Nick Usborne.
In it, Nick discusses the finer points of how to find your voice and use it to communicate to your readers … and how to use that relationship to sell with integrity.
The third question I hear most frequently is “I don’t have an opt-in email list now. How do I build one?”
And luckily John Wood is here with a great answer!
In it, John shares 10 ways that you can convert your current website or blog to begin capturing email addresses and build your list. As I have mentioned before, collecting the email names of the people that you are already putting effort into attracting to your site can make a huge difference in your monthly sales.
Hopefully these resources will help answer some of the question you may have too. And remember that I am always here to help so if I haven’t addressed your question here or if you would like to suggest a topic to cover in a future newsletter, please write in to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to get you an answer.
