You’ve done the hard work, researched the market, and setup your affiliate website. The ground work is done for the site and programs, but now you need traffic. Today we will discuss some basics on getting good leads to your site and beyond.
Receiving traffic from Google or other search engines is the best way to get good leads. You will need to build your website to be friendly not only to leads, but easy for the search engine to explore. On-site optimization is about making your websites pages keywords and format easy for search engines to pick up on what your about.
Post in Forums
Posting in forums that have the same topic as your site will help bring traffic. Do not just say “Hey visit my site” this is spammy and not welcome. You should participate in the forum answering others questions constructively and then providing a link to your site. Also, each post can have a signature, this is where you could put information about your site.
Get Listed on Directories
There are thousands of directories on the internet and getting listed on them will lead traffic to you. Submitting your site to industry-related directories will put your brand out with others. Most of these sites will have a directory submission page where you can let them know about your site. Search Google for your keywords and “directory” to find some lists quick.
Get Incoming Links
Having links come into your site will drive traffic (it can also help with SEO). There are several ways to go about this, having links from directories you are in for one. You can also backlink from other relevant sites. Get links from other sites by contacting their webmasters. Also, build links to your site through blogging.
Posting articles on forums or your own site will attract traffic . Write articles to link to your site and promote your site, this allows traffic to access your affiliate offer. The more articles you write the more traffic and potential qualified leads will be generated.
