Traffic Building – Why I Use Article Marketing To Generate Traffic
When I first got started online, I wrote a book, created a web site and a sales page, and then I realized that none of that mattered if I didn’t have traffic.
I looked up traffic online and found that I could buy traffic – lots of it! I knew it would just be redirects and stuff, but I figured at least it was traffic – surely some of it will buy!
Not so! I began to play the exchange links game and many of the other traffic schemes on the market.
Nothing really worked – sure I was getting hits, but no sales or subscribers.
So, almost by accident, because I was doing it only to get inbound links, I began writing articles. And people started clicking on my links that were designed to help me get backlinks. I never really thought that would amount to much traffic.
And it wasn’t much traffic, but it was weird. This traffic actually converted into subscribers and then into sales. In fact, at that time, I sent a lot of my traffic to sales pages rather than squeeze pages, so I was getting sales, too, upfront.
This was all very exciting to me – so I started writing more articles and submitting them for the purpose of getting direct hits and traffic. And it worked!
Before long, I was receiving dozens, then over a hundred unique visitors everyday, and they were real people – not just hits. This traffic was subscribing, buying, generally pretty responsive. Article marketing is great for traffic!
