Dramatically Increase Your Traffic at Zero Cost
by Michael Hopkins

Bringing in lots of quality traffic to your website is the key to success for your online business. But it also happens to be the hardest and most expensive part.

Fortunately, there's still ONE easy way to bring in floods of quality traffic without spending a cent...

Just write simple articles and submit them for publication in relevant ezines.

It's not new and it's not revolutionary but it DOES work!

There are several benefits to using articles to promote your product or service:

  • You can generate huge amounts of quality targeted traffic by having your articles published in ezines related to your market.

  • By having your articles published on other websites (and ezine archives), you'll increase your link popularity as well as directly bring in extra traffic.

  • By including the articles on your site, you'll have some good keyword-rich content for the search engines to pick up on.

  • Once you've written a few articles centered around the same topic, compile them into a free ebook and, hey presto, you've got yet another traffic-generating tool!

  • You can make your articles available to your affiliates as a tool to promote your product.

  • You instantly enhance your reputation in the eyes of potential customers.

In short, articles are an EXCELLENT promotion and sales tool.

And, despite what you might think, writing quality articles that Ezine publishers WILL use is much easier than you might think.

These kind of titles ALWAYS work well at attracting the attention of the target audience AND they're quick and easy to write -- all you need is an introduction, the list of points and a concluding paragraph. Heck, just find a few useful websites or free tools related to your subject and you're probably half way there!

Once you've written your article, wait a few days and then read it again. This will give you a fresh perspective to make some improvements and clean up errors. (Don't ignore this step -- it's important).

The next important step is to create a good resource box (the 'About the Author' bit at the end). The resource box needs to have two things...

1) A link back to the site you're promoting. Make sure to include the full http://www part or else the link will not be 'clickable' and will not be recognized as a backlink by the search engines.

2) A 'call to action'. Or, to put it another way, a good reason for the person who's just read your article to click the link and visit your site. Ideally, this should be an offer of something for free that will appeal to those interested in the topic of the article. It could be a free report, a free ebook, a free sample or whatever.

Now, start submitting your article to article announcement lists and article directories. The easiest way to do this is using software like Article Submitter PRO which does 90% of the work for you (and does it very quickly).

Otherwise, if you decide to do it manually, here are a few places you can get started:

Announcement Lists

Once you've done submitting your article there, it's time to get specific...

Start submitting to relevant ezines and websites inviting them to publish it. You'll find tons of ezines that are crying out for content in Ezine Directories like Zinos.com or Amazines.com.

Make sure the ezines you're submitting to accept articles and, if so, find out if they have specific guidelines for submission. It's a good idea to find out the name of the publisher so that you can personalize your submission.

This is a copy of the message I use when submitting articles. Feel free to copy it and adapt it to your own needs:

And there you have it, a quick and easy (yes, easy!) approach to generating quality targeted traffic in the short and long term.
