Need to generate traffic, fast? In this article, we’re going to cover three techniques that work within just hours to just a few weeks. These techniques can help take even a website with no traffic and bring it back to life.
Six Hours: Pay Per Click Traffic
Pay Per Click (PPC) traffic is the fastest way to bring a traffic boost to your website.
You don’t need to worry about the whims of the search engines or about waiting for your brand to get established. All you need to do is whip out your credit card and let the traffic flow in.
Of course, it’s not that simple. First, you need to come up with lists of keywords for what people are likely to type in. Then, you need to write compelling ads that’ll get people to click.
Finally, you need to install tracking software that allows you to detect exactly which keyword(s) are converting.
Once you’ve done these three steps, activate your campaign and watch the traffic come flooding in.
Two Weeks: The “Bum Marketing” Method
While this method won’t work within two weeks consistently, it does often enough.
The “bum marketing” method is so named because it’s supposedly so simple that even a bum off the street could do it.
The method? Find keywords that have less than 10,000 competing exact-search results. Write an article for that keyword. Post it to an article directory.
With the directory’s PageRank, the article should easily outrank the rest of the competition, provided there aren’t any super-strong sites in the 10,000 competitors.
Make sure you target keywords with at least 1,000 searches a month. Success with this technique comes from doing many, many articles, not just one or two.
One to Four Weeks: Finding a JV Deal
Finding and launching a JV deal takes a little longer, but can be very lucrative.
A JV deal essentially means someone else agrees to promote your product. They send two to four emails out to their list promoting you.
First, you need to land the deal. The best way to land JV deals is through friends and friends of friends. The second best way is to just call up potential partners.
Once you have an outline of the deal, you’re not finished. You’ve then got to craft the emails, create custom landing pages and create tracking codes to make sure your partner gets paid.
From start to finish, launching a JV deal can take anywhere from one to four weeks.
Each of these methods, if executed well, could bring in a lot of traffic. You could make a full-time living just from using these techniques well. Don’t jump from technique to technique; instead pick one, commit to it and see it through.
