Getting traffic to your site doesn’t have to be super complicated. One easy – and free – idea to try is Article Marketing. There are many article reprint directories on the web (just Google that term and you’ll see there are tons!). Website owners and bloggers visit these sites daily to grab pre-written articles for their sites and blogs.
When you submit an article to these sites, you are giving permission for others to post it on their site, for free. As a “thank you,” these site owners will include your author bio and your link. You’d be surprised by how much traffic can come to your site from these articles!
Let’s say that you submit 10 articles and they each get published three times, and that 25 people view each page they’re published on. That comes out to 750 new people reading your article and possibly clicking on the link to your website. Now, let’s say each of your articles are published 10 times and that 100 people see each page it’s published on…. Well, that’s 10,000 views and possible clicks.
To be effective, keep your articles related to subjects that match your website. Since the person reading the article is already interested in the article’s subject, they’ll be more likely to visit your website if your website’s topic is on key with the article topic.
For example, if you make handmade soap, you could write an article on why organic ingredients are better for your skin or an article on the toxins found in grocery store brand soaps. At the end of the article, your bio will be displayed and the person reading it will see that you make natural soaps and will be so intrigued by your article, they will want to click that link!
