Have you ever felt the thrill and excitement of seeing traffic rush to your website or an affiliate link and sales quickly follow?
Let me tell you, having the power to direct traffic to any site you want, when you want (for free) and then seeing sales pour in is one of the most rewarding and satisfying things about running an online business.
So what is this magical method of driving traffic instantly, for free?
Well, it’s no mystery at all actually.
Instant traffic without cost is possible when you have a ‘list’.
If you’re unfamiliar with the term ‘list building’, it’s what us marketers call the process of collecting names and emails of potential customers and emailing them with offers.
The beauty of emailing your list is that your subscribers will get your email, potentially open it, read it and click on a link to your website or website you recommend.
Having an email list = Instant Traffic when you want!
Seriously, in the same time it takes to make your favorite bowl of instant noodles, you can actually see sales flow into your inbox or PayPal or whatever when you send out to your list!
Hopefully now you see the power of having a list that you can email.
“But hang on Stuart, I don’t have a list…how can I build a list quickly?”
Never fear! Emailing a list is not the only way to get traffic.
There are hundreds of ways to get traffic to a website…I’m sure you already know a few ways.
You can buy it, trade it or steal it 🙂 (More on those three another day.)
But where so many marketers go wrong is that they are in too much of a hurry to make a sale and forget about building a list first.
They waste traffic by sending visitors straight to a “pitch page” without capturing it first. i.e. not building a list.
A small percentage may buy on the spot (0.1% – 2%) but the remaining 99% of that traffic is gone forever.
Don’t make that mistake!
Build a list first buy sending your traffic to a squeeze page first. It may take a little time at first to get subscribers, but the long-term gain is that you’ll be able to get that free INSTANT website traffic and sales whenever you want it!
List building and email marketing is nothing new.
But it’s still up there with one of the most effective, cheapest (can’t beat free!) and simplest ways to send traffic in an instant to any site to promote and sell anything online.
To your success,
