Viral Marketing 101 – Not Using It Could Kill Your Business!

Creativity.

This is one virtue a site must possess to lead the race in the ruthless competition in the Internet based business. With so many competition and rivalry going on, every method of marketing must be employed and utilized.

It doesn’t matter if you have a killer product or a fantastically designed website, if people don’t know that you exist, it doesn’t matter, and you are not going to make it big. Worse of all, you business could just get killed.

While there are so many methods and schemes used by so many e-commerce sites today, there are still some of those that can help you with an extra boost in the popularity ratings. One of these is the so called Viral Marketing.

While the term Viral easily depicts a virus, a word very much dreaded by all computer owners, it is not what it seems. You do not actually use a computer virus to spread your business; on the contrary it just might kill you. Everyone has had enough of all those pop up ads and spywares.

Viral Marketing Overview

Viral Marketing also known otherwise as Viral Advertising is a marketing technique used to build the public awareness of one’s product or company. They use many forms of media to reach out to the public without actually promoting the product by riding on in other forms of addictive means that could get a person hooked and be obliged or amused to actually pass it on, with the product or company advertisement along with it.

In a nutshell, companies ride on the idea that if people like the content of a media they will pass it on to their friends and family. They sponsor the certain media, such as a cool flash game, funny video, amusing story and such, which one may pass on to another with the company brand or logo or the products description or any other content to help promote the company or its product.

Viral marketing has become a popular means of advertising and marketing because they are relatively low cost. To avoid being tagged as spam mail, viral marketing counts on the eagerness of one person to pas on the product. If a person sees the name of the person they know as the sender, they won’t block it and open it as well.

Many companies offer incentives such as discounts and rebates when they help in spreading their viral marketing. They rely on the number of recipients a viral marketing gets from one person in determining the amount or number of incentive they can be attributed with.

Using Viral Marketing to your advantage

The main and foremost advantage of viral marketing is that you get a lot of publicity and public awareness about your site and your company. You get to generate a flow of traffic that are potential customers. With a little ingenuity and imagination, plus some incentives or prizes, you can reach out to a great number of people and announce your existence.

Most every site and companies are catching on to the effectivity of Viral Marketing and Advertising. Not using it could kill your business. Along with other schemes and methods in promoting your site, like Search Engine Optimization and such, viral marketing could easily push you ahead in the rating games.

Viral Marketing could be a sneaky way to get people to know about you and your company. You get them to pass your advertisement along. They are also very low cost that not investing in it could be downright a business suicide. All it takes is a great idea, a good addicting game, a funny story many ideas are still out there. Create a gossip or a buzz, many movies are promoted by using scandals and gossips to make them moiré popular. Remember the movie “The Blair Witch Project”?

Many big companies have tried viral marketing and have had many success stories with it. A classic example is Microsoft’s Hotmail. They were the first known big company to utilize the scheme and it has worked wonders for them.

Now it’s your turn to use viral marketing to work wonders for you. Act now and reap the benefits Viral Marketing will provide for you and your sales figures.

One of the best prosucts to use and promote zero cost traffic

Banner Bonanza

Banner Bonanza

Here’s the deal. You have a website. You need to get traffic
to your website and you’ve decided that you’d like to use
banners to generate some fresh hits. This is a good idea.
Banners should be a tool in everyone’s marketing toolbox. So
where do you begin? Right here.

First, let’s take a look at the different ways you can get
your banner placed on other sites. The three top techniques
are:

1. Joint venture
2. Reciprocal links
3. Banner exchanges

You can use some or all of these techniques, depending on
how much space you want to devote to banners on your own
site.

One of the most focused and largely successful ways to get
your banner placed on someone else’s site is to offer them
a joint venture (JV). A joint venture works on the same
principles as an affiliate program.

1. Your JV partner places your banner on his/her site
2. A visitor from their site, clicks on your banner
and lands on your site
3. The visitor makes a purchase at your site
4. Your JV partner receives a percentage of your profits from
that sale

The easiest way to locate potential joint venture partners is
to go to your favorite search engine and type in keywords that
describe your site. Take the top 10 listings, visit the sites
and contact each webmaster by email asking if they would be
interested in a joint venture. Keep records of who you contact
and the response. Then go on to the next 10 on the list. This
method of finding potential joint venture partners allows you
to control which sites will be displaying your banner. It takes
some time to do this, but your banners appear on targeted sites
and often draw a better response than from other methods of
banner exchanging.

The next way to get your banner out in the market is to offer
reciprocal links. A reciprocal link is your agreement with
another webmaster to place their banner or text link on your
site, in return for them placing your banner or text link on
their site. Quite simply, you trade banners. This method works
well if you have some extra space that you would like to use
for banner advertising. You can target your prospects the same
way you did for joint ventures. This method of getting your
banners out in the marketplace will be limited to the amount
of space that you would like to devote to other people’s
banners on your site.

Some banner sites allow you to specify the type of
content that you would like for your site. This is
beneficial, so you are not inadvertently showing a banner
with content that your visitors may find objectionable.

There are numerous ways to get your banner exposed online.
Whether you use a combination of all the different methods,
or concentrate on one or two, the important point is that
you have your banner out in the marketplace.

To Your Success,

How To Drive Massive Amounts Of Traffic To Your Squeeze Page

There are hundreds of ways to generate traffic – I’m going to focus on the ones I use the most, which of
course also are the most effective for me. As with the other articles I’m going to rank these step by step – note
that it does not mean that #1 is the best, it means that I believe #1 to be the easiest to master and get results
from. You don’t have to use all the traffic sources, you need to figure out what works best for you and how
many sources you can use effectively. But at the same time you don’t want to limit yourself to just one source.


Tracking Your Conversion Rates

I mentioned this briefly in the first article – It’s very important that you track your conversion rates, because
you want to know:
1.What works, so you can focus your time and money on the traffic resources that perform best for you.

2.What to change on your squeeze pages, in order to improve your conversion rates and what version of
your squeeze page works best with a given traffic method.

3.The cost per sign up – You can then compare that to what you earn (on average) per subscriber going
through your follow up series. Knowing these 2 numbers will allow you to put your list building into
overdrive, because you can basically use this to “buy” unlimited traffic and still be in profit.

When you set up your tracking link, you will get a small piece of code that you can add to your thank you
page. You will then be able to see how many subscribers you get , where they are coming from and what that
cost you. As I said this in invaluable information – you need it to build a truly effective and profitable
campaign.

I recommend that you add the conversion tracking code to your download page (or whatever page they go to
after clicking the verification link) – that way you will be tracking what matters, new subscribers. Not much
point in advertising somewhere that brings in a ton of (fake) sign ups, if none of them verify their subscription.

Traffic Generation Methods

Here are 4 very simple traffic generation methods you can start using today (and they are all free to low cost).

Traffic Method 1: Traffic Exchanges
First off all we know exactly why people are using traffic exchanges. They want to make money online, they
want free traffic, and they are likely using that traffic to promote a “make money program” of some sort. As
you can see the traffic is very targeted if we provide what people want e.g. “how to make money online”, “how
to get tons of free traffic”, “how to recruit more people to their biz opp” or any combination of these 3. On the
other hand you will be wasting you time marketing other niche products on traffic exchanges, people might be
interested in e.g. football, but they are not surfing traffic exchanges to learn about football. If you want to
promote niche products on exchanges you need to spin in from the “make money” angle.

Here are a few of the best traffic exchanges:
1.Dragon Surf
2.Traffic-Splash
3.I Love Hits
4.Advertising Know How
5.StartXchange
6.Traffic Bunnies
These 6 exchanges are a good starting point, and you can then expand with the exchanges that make it into
the top 10-15 over at Affiliate Funnel

Traffic Method 2: Safelists

Most of what you just read about traffic exchanges also applies to safelists. It’s basically the same kind of
users (target market) and it’s very important that you use them to build your own list. Here are a few extra
points that will help make you a successful safelist advertiser…

As with traffic exchanges, there are thousands of safelists on the market and most of them are worthless.
They are either small “hobby” lists run by amateurs or they are populated by auto submitters with no real
people reading your ads. You need to focus on 5-10 good solid credit based safelists, and then post to these
as often as possible

As I said it’s the same target market as on the traffic exhanges. Work at home/make money people, who are
often just getting started. They are looking for free traffic and for information on how to “make it” in internet
marketing. With the the squeeze page and follow up series you created after reading the first two articles, you
are poised to give them what they are looking for.
You don’t want to write long ad copy for your safelist ads, and you certainly don’t want to send people directly
to a sales page. Here’s what you need to do:
1.You need a good strong, and interesting, subject line to increase open rate on your ads.

2.Your ad should be short and to the point – you just want to create enough curiousity to make people
want to click on to your squeeze page. A good strong sub headline, a few benefit laden bullet points
and a strong call to action is all you need.

3.Understand that most readers will only open your ad because they need to get to the credit link at the
bottom. Your job is to either stop them before they reach it and send them to your squeeze page, or to
at least pre-sell them on what they will see when they click the credit link.
Focus your safelist advertising on capturing leads. Link to your squeeze page both from the ads and from the
credit links.

Traffic Method 3: Viral List Builders

Like with safelists you should use these viral list builders to promote a squeeze page, so you can build your
own list, and you do it in much the same way. However you should note that there are usually no credit links
on viral list builders, so your subject line and ad copy is much more important for conversion rates.
List Bandit and ViralURL are two excellent viral list builders, and taking up the one time offer in both of them was one of
my best decisions ever.

There are a couple of credit based viral list builders out there, I guess you can say they are a crossbreed
between the viral list builders and safelists.
List Joe and List Auction are both worth joining and upgrading in.
And you can see more list building programs in Affiliate Funnel.

Join a few of the better list building programs and upgrade (you get the best deals on the OTO when joining).
Then mail them as often as possible, always linking to your squeeze page. I can guarantee you, that this will
build you a nice list fast.

Traffic Method 4: Signature Links

Email signature:
With most email programs you can automatically set up a signature link. Put in a couple of
lines of catchy text and then link to your squeeze page. Once you set it up, it’s a very hands off form of
advertising.

Forum signatures:
can be one of the most effective forms of advertising generating highly targeted traffic.
Simply add a line or two of text and a link for your squeeze page


How To Drive Even More Traffic To Your Squeeze Page

Here I’m going to take it to the next level and show you have to drive even more traffic, with some more advanced resources – note that
these aren’t supposed to replace the resources in the last article, they are meant to be add-ons to your overall traffic strategy.

Conversion Tracking & Split Testing
Hopefully you have set up your conversion tracking after reading the last chapter. As I mentioned there are a
couple of reasons why you want to pay close attention to your conversion tracking stats, let’s take a close
look at two of them…
1. With proper conversion tracking you know the exact cost of one new subscriber to your list. If you (on
average) pay 25 cents per subscriber at source A, and 50 cents at source B – you of course want to focus
your advertising budget on source A (all other things being equal).
But since you have monetized your sign up process and have a good auto responder follow series – you also
know roughly how much money you make from each new subscriber going through your follow up series.
So if you earn $1 per person going through your follow up series (that’s a very realistic number btw), and we
take a look at the example above – you would of course keep purchasing as much traffic as you can from
both source A and B, for as long as the conversion rates and earnings stays up.
And that’s the beauty of doing proper conversion tracking and knowing your numbers. You can pretty much
automate (pay for) most of your traffic generation and still be in profit – and that leaves you with time for
testing and tweaking your pages, emails etc. to improve your conversions and earning, and for developing
new systems and products.

2. But just because you are in profit doesn’t mean you should be satisfied. You should use your conversion
tracking to continuously improve your squeeze page. That way you can raise you conversion rates, decrease
your cost per subscriber and in turn allow you to build your list faster, for bigger long term profits.
What you want to do is run some simple split tests on your squeeze pages. I’m not talking about advanced
taguchi testing, although you can do some pretty advanced stuff with a free Google Analytics account – I’m
talking about simple A/B split tests, here’s what you want to do:

1.Make two versions of your squeeze page (for each different traffic source). Rotate the two pages so
each of them get 50% of the traffic. This is very easy to manage using
Hitsconnect
as they have both have conversion tracking and rotators.

2.You want to test simple changes, like a different headline, changing one of the bullet points, changing
the font style or background colour etc. You ONLY want to split test one thing at a time, otherwise you
won’t know what is causing the change in conversion rates.
3.When you have collected enough tracking stats to determine e.g. which headline is converting the
best. You toss out the losing squeeze page and keep the winner.

4.Then you try to beat the winner by creating a new squeeze pages testing something else, like
changing a bullet point

This sort of split testing is an ongoing process, that will continue to improve your conversion rates and thus
both speed up your list building and earn you more money

Tips to increase your Adwords Profits

1. Create a list with all possible keywords that fit to your product, service or business field. The more the better.
So you will get also a lot of keywords which you must pay for only the minimal commandment of 5 cents.

2. Benefit from misspelling in order to find keywords which your competitors did not think of. For example if you have a emergency service , do not only bid for “emergency” but also for “imergency”, “imergensy” or “immergency”.

3. The first position on Googles search result page achieves usually most clicks. However this is also the most expensive position. Give it a try if the second to fourth display position gives you more visitors and more customers for less money.

4. The position of the Adwords-ad is determined not only by the maximum click price that you are ready to spend. Google evaluates also the relevancy of the displayed ad in order to position the Adwords-ads. The more clicks your ad receives, the higher it gets listed.

5. The headline in the Adwords-ad must catch the viewers attention. If you implement the keyword in the header line, you receive considerably more clicks onto your ad.

6. In the ad-text mention one or two reasons, why the internet user should click on it. Which problem solves your product or service? Do you offer a product at a cheaper price or do you ship without the dispatch charges?

7. Avoid price wars at which a competitor and you attempt to outdo the click price for a keyword continuously mutually. You only see to it that the click price fires into the sky. It is better to find search-terms which consist of several words and which are more precise.

8. Google AdWords offers keyword-options which you should absolutely study. If properly set up you can make sure that your AdWords-ad appears only for example if the internet-user has exclusively entered your term and no further.

9. Use “excluding keywords”. Those ones are keywords for which your ad is supposed not to appear. In this way you do not have to pay for clicks, when somebody is searching for free stuff or only for a pamphlet.

10. Construct for every keyword and for everyone of your AdWords ads an own landing-page. There you can offer especially that which the internet-user searched for.

11. An own landing-page beside has also the advantage that you can measure exactly how many customers a specific Keyword and a specific ad brought in. You can optimize your displays continuously in this way and increase the purchase rate.

12. Update your AdWords-ads at specific events or holidays, for example to the New Year, Valentine, Easter or Christmas.

13. If you mention the price for a product or a service in the AdWords ad, then you can exclude in front the free- and all-free-searcher from clicking your ad.

14. Be conservatively in the selections of the countries and the languages’ in which your AdWords ads are supposed to appear. If your product or your service turn only to customers speaking in a German manner, you should tune “Germany” and “Austria” as countries. With corresponding success you can try out also further countries, for example Switzerland, and areas close to the border. This method can also be applied to any other language.

15. The Google ads are also displayed on partner sites of Google, for example at Focus.de or T-Online.de. If your AdWords ad costs too much and/or goes for too little profit, then interrupt the option that lets announce your ad also on the partner sites of Google. Test wisely. Not all ads run well on the partner sites.

Here you got 15 powerful methods to increase your Adwords profits. All you have to do is to take action and apply them NOW!

Happy earnings!

Consider Paying For Your Traffic

There are numerous success stories you will hear about businesses making it good on the internet . The troubling thing is, there are maybe a tenfold or even a hundredfold of stories inconsistent to theirs. Many have unsuccessfully launched a business venture that is internet based but only a handful shall succeed.

Is this because of luck? That is even more remote. It takes good business sense and a lot of help and team effort. Most importantly, it is the eagerness to succeed and the persistence to learn and the willingness to put in a lot of hard work and some money.

However, before shelling out your hard-earned money on advertising, here are three (3) smart reasons why you should consider paying for your traffic including common-sense methods of showing you how to prepare your website.

1. The quickest method for getting customers to your website is to pay for your traffic.

Like Neo, traffic is ‘The One’ . Without traffic, all your efforts would just go to waste. Every business needs customers, without them you wouldn’t have anyone to sell your products to. In the Internet world traffic is the walk in customer. The more traffic you possess the more people you’d be able to sell your products to.

But similar to any business that’s in every corner building or in the mall, not everyone that goes in will buy. But for those who do come in to browse your merchandise, most of them will buy your products. It is a clear and known fact.

But, how do you get traffic, traffic great enough that could make a small portion of resulting buyers enough to make a fair profit. Many big companies generate traffic of tens of thousands a day and a measly ten to fifteen percent actually buys, but that small percentage is enough to supply them with adequate business.

Many of these success stories get their traffic from paying others. Yes that’s right; you have to spend money to make money. Advertising is the key. The more people who know that your site exists the more people would of course go to your site, that’s common sense.

While there are numerous ways to get free advertising for your business, free advertising doesn’t generate the same high volume of traffic as paid traffic does. Paid advertisements include such advertising schemes as those offered by Google and Yahoo.

2. In order to take full advantage of the search engines, make sure that your site is properly optimized to rank high before paying for your traffic.

Search engines are the fastest and easiest way for finding what you need on the internet . Search engines are extremely popular because they provide an indispensable service to many people. They are free and easy to use. Because of their popularity, search engines receive many visitors as well as click throughs . With these benefits in mind, it is easy to see why so many companies would pay to advertise with search engines.

Search engines provide information to the millions of users they receive each day. They provide relevant links to many sites that a user may be looking for. If your site’s link pops up as one of the top ranked sites on the search results page, you stand a great chance that the user will click your link and go to your site. While search engine optimization is a cheaper and low cost way to get your site a high rank, paying for advertisements will ensure that you will be on the top ranks.

When you pay for your advertisements, it is like paying for guaranteed traffic to your site. This may not seem like a good idea at first, but the benefits of doing so far outweigh the cost in the long run. When you pay for your traffic, you are guaranteed a consistent flow of traffic to your site. You will at no time go without making a sale on any given day.

3. Find and use tools that will aid you in researching relevant keywords for your chosen niche so that you don’t waste money on advertising.

Normally, you will be charged with the number of hits a link gets when your ad is clicked, this is known as pay per click. For some search engines, you will be charged with the number of times your ad shows up when a certain keyword or keyword phrase is searched. It is imperative that you have good keyword content in your ad. There are many tools on the Internet which can aid you in using the right keywords at the right moment in time.

All the money you spend in paying for your traffic will not be for nothing. You will get an impressive boost in traffic which will also result in a great boost in your sales figures.
