Q: How can I get more customers online?
A: Hi Denise! The best way to get more customers online is to drive traffic to your site. Here are a couple of sure-fire methods for getting traffic:
1. Pay per click advertising. I'm not a huge fan of PPC advertising, but for a product site like yours, investing at least $100 a month (assuming that you can get leads for $.05/$.10 each) would be a profitable strategy for you.
2. Develop a list. Give some information product away on your site to encourage visitors to get on your email list. Once you create that giveaway, make sure your signup box is available on every page of your site. The majority of your traffic won't come to your site via your homepage, which is why it pays to have that call to action on every page of your site.
3. Write and submit articles. By far, this is my favorite strategy. Just one 600-800 word article each week that is submitted to online article banks can easily double your traffic. www.GetMoreClientsArticles.com is my secret article success weapon!
4. Social networking. If you're not yet on Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin, it's not too late. Starting following members of your target market, and then send regular status updates about what you're doing and what you have to offer that will help them. Don't overly promote yourself and your products — try to help the members of your network first.
