Your list is the backbone of your business… no list, no business! To build a list you need traffic… visitors to your website who subscribe to your list.
Traffic makes the Internet world go around!
To get traffic your visitors first need to find you in some way. When they find you there needs to be an opt-in box on your webpage that will allow them to subscribe and an autoresponder that will organize these respondents in to a list you can phone or email.
A high ranking on the search engines is one way to do this. If your listing shows in the first three pages of a Google search, then this is prime real estate… you have arrived. You will almost certainly have people clicking your link and visiting your webpage.
Here are some ways you can make this happen:
You can write articles on topics relevant to your business and publish them on article directories.
The article directories have extremely high Search Engine rankings because of the frequency and diversity of their new postings… the spiders love new material and lots of pages on a site.
You effectively get to ride on their back. I have had sites indexed in less that one day with only two articles posted on one directory. This is an amazingly powerful tool for getting traffic.
Why is that?
Because you get to put a resource box at the end of your article with your contact information advertising a free book or report. People who find your book description interesting will elect to subscribe to your list.
The second benefit is that these articles begin to grow exponentially (going viral we call it) as other Ezine publishers post your articles to their sites, complete with your resource box.
You can visit forum sites and make regular posts to appropriate threads.
When you post make sure to attach your resource box at the end of the post. If you become a regular visitor and other forum members find your posts valuable they will begin to click your link for your free material and will subscribe to your newsletter.
Sometimes they will forward your post to other friends and this technique goes viral too.
You may also want to consider exchanging links with some other reputable established sites whose content impresses you.
Back links add to your Search Engine ranking. Just try to make sure that the site you are exchanging links with has something that relates to your own site content.
Start a Blog
Just go to Blogger.com and start your own blog. It takes about five minutes. Post to your blog every day. Remember the spiders love fresh content. Post your articles and business commentaries and some personal information if you like.
Then visit other blogs in a similar space to your own and add comments to their posts. Ask them to visit your blog and post a comment and you have another backlink.
There are many more things you can do to expand you web presence and your prospect list.
