5 More Effective Ways To Get Traffic And Build A List

1. Promote your list on forums

Another great way in which you can promote your list is to post on forums regularly.

You can start by finding a number of forums related to your particular niche.

Start at http://www.big-boards.com/ and browse for related forums.

As you go, make a list of the URLs and the primary subject matter of the forum. Also, consider how much traffic and how many subscribers each of these forums have.

Ultimately, your goal should be to select a number of high-traffic, active forums with many subscribers.




You will then want to frequent these forums and post on them whenever you get the opportunity.

Make an overt attempt to be helpful whenever possible and to demonstrate your expertise.

After you have been a member of the forum for a while, you'll want to add a signature that promotes your newsletter or your free offer.






In addition to providing the actual link to your subscription page, include a short, 5-10 word pitch that will entice readers to at least consider clicking the link.

Of course, your efforts shouldn’t stop there.

Once you have the signature in place and have gained a strong reputation, you should continue to cultivate relationships on those forums, to post regularly, and to gain exposure to many forum visitors, so that your signature has more chances to be seen.

2. Run a competition

As mentioned before, it is vital that you get your own readers involved in the promotional process of your site and newsletter .

If you already have a large list, then the potential to grow even larger is higher.

Running a competition is a fun and effective way to build your list with the help of your current subscribers and your new subscribers.

Not only will it allow you to interact with current subscribers, but get them to bring in new people, and those new people will bring in new people thus growing your list size very large, quickly.

For example, you could run a simple competition on your blog where people who link back to your site or leave a comment or answer a question can win a prize of some sort.

The same kind of competition can be run on social media sites with incentives for sharing your link or web page.

You could get people to "like" your facebook fan page or "re-tweet" your link with a hashtag and you would pick a random winner.

If you have a special website script that allows you to run competitions, such as a referral contest, using it would be a very powerful way to build a list.

Whatever you do to encourage your readers to provide referrals, keep in mind what it is they want most whether it be cash, advertising space, or products.

If you can’t offer them what they want or need, then they are unlikely to have an interest in promoting your list.

3. Know and seek out your target audience

One important part about generating new subscriptions is knowing your audience and where they hang out online.

 If you don’t know who you’re marketing to that is, the “type” of person who has an interest in your list and business then you’ll have both a hard time persuading them that they should join your list and a hard time finding them.

In short, if you’re not familiar with the “typical” buyer or subscriber in your niche, it is time to get to know them better. Find out what they want, the problems they are having etc.

Ways to find out about your audience is to s eek them out on forums, interact with them on blogs, join their newsletters, in social marketing groups and do whatever you can to understand them better.

Once you know where your audience is spending most time online, you can focus on targeting them there that rather than spreading yourself out thin over many avenues.

4. Get backlinks to your squeeze page

A backlink is a hyperlink on another web page that points to your web page.

When people click on that link, they end up on your site. Backlinks can do two things for you.

1) Give you direct traffic by people clicking on the link, and 2) it can boost your rankings in the search engines, thus resulting in more traffic, and more subscribers.

To get backlinks, you can buy them in bulk at places like http://fiverr.com , but beware that some backlink packages are quite low in quality and won't do much for you at all.

You'd be better off going to an expert SEO backlink service to get quality backlinks.

Traffic Travis is an all-in-one SEO software that is easy to use.

For a more easy way to get backlinks, you can post comments on blogs, in forums and in article resource boxes when you submit articles to directories.

You may want to outsource these tasks as they can be quite repetitive and time consuming.
