Getting Visitors To Online Money Making Programs

On my own blog I’ve been talking about the various free stores that bloggers can set up, such as DIY Dating, Amazon aStores, Convergence (over 18’s only) and Zlio and so on.

Lots of people take up these offers, along with joining one of the many affiliate programs, but the majority don’t do any business at all.

The question is always being asked: How do you get traffic to these sort of websites?

Nil traffic, of course = nil commission.

Here’s a quick ‘brainstorm’ list of ideas. I don’t profess that they are original but they may be of interest, especially to newbies.

There are dozens of other ways as well. If you have any please leave a comment and we’ll see if we can extend the list.

1. Join forums and discussion groups and have a link within your signature.
2. Write press releases and submit them to press PR websites.
3. Write and submit articles to the many article directories.
4. Submit your website to any directories with similar niches.
5. Promote them on your blogs – both with banners and small text ads at the end of posts.
6. Get links from other blogs.
7. Write a freebie ebook or report with links to your store/shop.
8. Obtain referrals from similar but non competing sites.
9. Try free traffic exchanges such as Blog Soldiers, Blog Explosion, Traffic Swarm, Blog Mad
10. Leave comments on other blogs with a backlink.
11. Advertise on free advertising sites such as Craigs List.
12. Include your URL on all emails sent out.
13. Exchange links with related sites.
14. Join myLot and leave URL when you write comments and join discussions. You’ll also get a small commission for your participation.
15. Start your own newsletter or eZine to build a database of names and email addresses.
16. Start a new blog relative to your store/shop website and submit this to all of the blog directories – there are 100’s of them.
17. Make sure you submit your store/shop to Google and Yahoo.
18. Join a link or banner exchange program.
19. Use free ads on non Internet publications.
20. Join things such as Squidoo and create pages about your store/shop.
21. Leave your link on every profile page of social network sites.

The main point to stress is that traffic doesn’t just arrive because we have taken the trouble to set up a free store or joined an affiliate program. There has to be action.

I’m sure that some of the 21 above may not be very effective but we have to try different things if we want to make money.

Don’t forget: If you have any more suggestions or ideas leave a comment and we’ll increase the list – this way we may all benefit.

Good luck,
Mike.
