Utilize the Power of StumbleUpon to Drive Traffic to Your Site

By: Don Crowther

StumbleUpon is an amazing site in terms of driving traffic. Basically, people sign up for StumbleUpon, they indicate which topic areas they are interested in, then load a toolbar and vote on which sites they like and which ones they don’t.

But where it really gets interesting is that members can, at any time, click on a Stumble button and be taken to a page that fits their areas of interest. In fact, so many people do that StumbleUpon has become a major traffic source for many sites, especially those that have some kind of interesting or entertaining linkbait associated with them.

For example our data for www.StomperBlog.com shows that, other than direct and internal traffic, the number 2 source of traffic for that site is StumbleUpon!

And that we actually get more traffic to that site from StumbleUpon than from Google!!!

Hmmm... maybe this IS worth paying attention to.

And that traffic isn’t worthless either. Our research has shown that it buys and clicks on ads at levels at rates that are usually at least equal and sometimes higher than other sites.

So, here’s what’s happening for your site right now, whether you’re a member of this service or not
• StumbleUpon members who come to your site are seeing it, and rating it either up or down
• They’re also adding reviews
• Some may be sharing your site with friends
• If your site is getting good ratings, StumbleUpon is including it in their list of sites that they feed out to people who click the StumbleUpon button. So you’re getting free traffic, with no effort on your part!

Place content on HubPages.com

By: Don Crowther

Hubpages.com is another great example of a site where you can post content, get it read by others, and get people to visit your site.

HubPages is basically an article publishing site, where you can set up an account, post articles or other content (hey, there’s even some poems up on this site!) and get great, quick search engine exposure for your pages.

But there are some other factors that make HubPages particularly interesting.

First, at least at this moment, it doesn’t nofollow links. So links, carefully and judiciously embedded, pass link value to your site.

Second, HubPages allows you to post sidebars above the fold and in other locations on your article.

One advantage that HubPages has over Squidoo is that could take less effort to build out a HubPage than a Squidoo lens, so you get a better ROI.

Another is that, while HubPages allows you to monetize your site like Squidoo, HubPages gives you a much bigger percentage of the revenues than Squidoo (60% of all the revenues you generate – they do this by showing your ad 60% of the time, and theirs 40%). That means that HubPages could result in a nice little check arriving in your account each month, in addition to the revenues you earn from getting more people to come to your site.

So, you can just do quick and dirty pages, or you can take things another step further, by putting a little more work into your pages to both add interest, and to try to become one of HubPages “featured pages” which will drive even more traffic to your pages.

Big Direct Traffic

By: Don Crowther

Your social marketing campaign will also drive big traffic DIRECTLY to your site from the social media sites, and that's huge. After all, that's really the holy grail, isn't it? We all want more traffic to our site, right?

Well, remember... these social media sites have more traffic than Google. And if you use the right strategies and tactics to put yourself in front of that traffic, then you don't have rely on Google to get traffic to your sites. And you don't have to worry about expensive AdWords campaigns, or other advertising.

Of course, let's be real... just because you start getting big traffic directly from the social media sites doesn't mean you will abandon your Google rankings and stop all advertising. What it means is that you will be getting a lot more traffic, and the average cost of that traffic will plummet down to levels that are more like 1998... there's that “back to the future” stuff I've been talking about.

And here's why we're so excited about social marketing (and our SMARTS technologies)... in this new frontier, Social MARKETING can spike your traffic FAST, and if you do it right, you get LONG TERM Search Engine traffic too. It's really the best of both worlds.

I mentioned this example in the video... Photobucket generates 55% of their traffic from their Widgets and applications on MySpace and Bebo, and it's now replaced Flickr as the largest photo sharing site in the UK. Why? Because for a variety of reasons Flickr didn't properly use social media and only gets 2.4% of its traffic from social media sites. What a great example of "you snooze you lose!"

Is It Too Late?

By: Don Crowther

This is the weird thing... lots of people actually think that it's too late to get the jump on those big name social media sites. They think that you needed to get onboard months or years ago to have first mover advantage. Well, the truth is, most marketers haven't even BEGUN to understand how to use them, let alone hit their true potential.

This is the bottom line: we're talking about a HUGE flood of Internet traffic AND attention... and it's all sitting there, waiting for you to tap into it.

So the real question is how do you market to that starving crowd? How do you put yourself and your business in front of that traffic and that attention?

Well here is the SUPER KEY POINT... and this is why this is one of those once in a lifetime defining moments for you and your business...

It's just like back in 1996 when you could submit your site to Inktomi and get listed that same day...

TODAY if you know the correct strategies and tactics for Social Marketing, you can grab nearly INSTANT traction on these social media sites... the very sites that are collectively getting MILLIONS of new users every month.

As I mentioned earlier, this opportunity won't last forever. It's easy pickings now... but that window will start to close in the next 12 to 18 months. But if you get there now you will have a HUGE first starter advantage.

First, let's look at traffic.

By: Don Crowther

You probably already know that traffic to social media sites has exploded over the last three years. But not many people know just how explosive that traffic really is. Let's look at a few facts...

First off, let's look at some hard data from Alexa.com... I showed these charts in my “No Secrets” video, but they're important enough to take another look at – and it's easier this way when they're not flying by in a video.

Let's start with Facebook... it seemed to come out of nowhere, and now it has almost as much traffic as

Now let's look at Myspace vs Google... you can see that Myspace actually beat the mighty G during much of 2007:

And did you realize that YouTube has almost twice as many monthly page views as Google?

And look at the trends on the graphs. Remember, these social media sites are growing by leaps and bounds. In fact, they are pretty much doubling every six months. Just imagine where they're going to be in a year or two.

Here's something else that's going to make you sit up and take notice...

According to Comscore, a highly trusted global Internet research company, in a typical month:
• Just under 2/3rds of everyone who goes online worldwide, visits MySpace
• And 29% of them visited Facebook
• 35% of them visit YouTube
• And 27% of them visit Wikipedia

And like I just mentioned, this all becomes even more important when you realize that the number of active users for most of the social media sites doubles every 6 months.

Facebook is currently adding more than a million visitors every week!
And this is not just a bunch of kids. Well over half of all MySpace visitors are older than 35. And a huge percentage of the growth at Facebook is coming from adults. There are now over 100,000 Facebook users who are older than 64!

And I mentioned this in the video... it's important is to realize that social networking is much larger than the MySpace and Facebook sites that most people think about. In fact, our SMARTS database now contains over 1,920 different social media sites. And we add more nearly every day.

Give Away Free Ebooks

Ebooks are books that are made available in an electronic format. The beauty of ebooks is they cost virtually nothing to produce and distribute. Ebooks initially became popular as the perfect format for information products being sold and delivered online, but they have now been recognized as a very effective resource for building traffic.

After you have written an ebook you can give it away to visitors as a reward for subscribing to your mailing list or newsletter. Your ebook for traffic building does not need to be the same number of pages as a full-length book. Many ebooks being used as free incentives are in the range of 12 to 25 pages.

You can even recruit related businesses and web sites to give away your ebook to their customers. The other site benefits because their visitors get something for free. And you benefit because you reach new readers with your information including a link to your web site.

Many ebook authors include a few advertising and affiliate links towards the end of their ebooks which can lead to additional revenue, especially if their free ebooks are heavily distributed.

Resource-a-day.net - A Review

The Resource-a-day.net claimed that they are the world's first FREE Internet resource which has also a 100% opt-in mailing and affiliate program.

I don't know if this would be attested by my fellow internet marketers. But for me as I began my venture in internet marketing last 4 years as of this date, I could attest myself that Resource-a-day.net is claiming right. Because after my thorough surfing the net and given myself a project to discover a good free resources for internet marketers, I found Resource-a-day.net a one of a kind in terms of its business concept that period of time. I know I'm just looking at my own perspective, but that's what I could affirmed thru my experience.

How I benefited from the Resource-a-day.net?

FreeSurveyLeads.com - A Review

Free Home-Based Business Survey Leads

FreeSurveyLeads.com is a more specific niche of leads. The 100% opt-in leads are of business type related more specifically home-based business. For me the leads are of a great importance for a number of internet marketers, because the type of leads provided at free have a highest responsive rates for business opportunities endorsements.

What's the difference between Free-Leads.net compared to FreeSurveyLeads.com?

I guess they are just developed and maintained by one organization because of its reciprocate links showed at the bottom of each site.
But one thing I could stressed out about their difference - Free-Leads.net is more of a general opt-in leads while FreeSurveyLeads.com is more of a specific business target leads taken from a sort of business surveys.

What's the commonality?

They have in common about the assurance of 100% opt-in leads as well as the revolutionary viral system they both implemented. The viral system has been designed to help them promote their business and help us gain the benefits of dowloading their opt-in leads. It's a win-win situation for both the company and its members.

How we get more advantage of dowloading more leads from others?

Just be quick to step up on the highest level possible you could.
Here the following are the 5 achievement levels:

Level 1: Bronze (no referrals needed) = 25 free opt-in leads weekly

Level 2: Silver (refer 5 people) = 150 free opt-in leads weekly

Level 3: Gold (refer 15 people) = 100 free opt-in leads weekly

Level 4: Platinum (refer 30 people) = 200 free opt-in leads weekly

Level 5: Diamond (refer 50 people) = 400 free opt-in leads weekly

How could the company gain profits?

Simply, if somebody wanted to fast track his/her level to Diamond(gaining an access to dowload 400 opt-in leads weekly), he should avail the one-time upgrading offer to Diamond Level upon payment of a certain amount mentioned in their back office apart from other promotional offers. Thus, a good cash flow of profits will be gained by the company to keep them going into the business.

How to get started?

The 4-step process:

Step 1: You fill out the form provided in the site.

Step 2: Make sure to activate your account thru your email.

Step 3: Log-in and get your survey leads.

Step 4: Start referring others to move up to higher membership levels and get more leads by using your referral link(ex. http://www.freesurveyleads.com/?ref=3328)

Traffic Myth: More Traffic Equals More Profits

by: Jason Dolman
At first, this statement screams to you that it MUST be true. I mean, of course more traffic equals more profits ... right?

One of the biggest "myths" of online marketing and Internet promotion is the idea that more
traffic equals more sales -- not so!

All traffic is not created equally!

If you can't make money with 100 visitors a day, what makes you think you're going to do anything more than increase your bandwidth costs when you're getting 1,000 or 10,000 visitors a day?

The fact is, you need to target your message as closely as possible to your desired audience. You don't want to promote items for cat owners to people who only own dogs.

That's why you won't see any PPC ads showing up that offer products and tips on dogs when you search for “cat owner tips” into Google.

The cat owner isn't looking for information about dogs, they're looking for information about their cat.

In fact, the person used in this example is looking for very specific information.

Information that you can use to learn a lot about them and their intentions once they get to your site

They've type in “cat owner tips” and because of that, you already know a lot about them.

First, they're probably already a cat owner. Second, they're looking for some tips about owning a cat.

Just by typing those words into the search engine, this person has quickly separated themselves from those people searching for other information that's much more generic – cat, cat food, cat toy, and the like.

The person searching for “cat owner tips” is someone that you MUST have visiting your site.


They're much more likely to buy something than someone looking for general information about cats

Like I said, they probably own a cat already and want some guidance or they're thinking about it and could use the same information.

They have a question or problem, they're looking for a solution to fix it and are willing to pay for it.

There is a very simple equation:

More Buyers = More Profits

If you want to build a successful Internet business, you must generate more buyers to produce more profits and there are two ways to do that ...

Get More OF Them. Sell More TO Them.

To get more of them, you need to be able to sort the buyers from the rest -- don't worry, there's a way to do that and the example given above is just a glimpse.

To sell more to them, you need to uncover their needs and provide them with offers that solve their problems.

To truly be a successful niche marketer ...

You MUST Flood Your Site With Targeted Buyers

Squidoo - A Review

Squidoo is being told as a next door generation BIG social networking site apart from the well-known Myspace gigantic existence. Squidoo is said to be easy to use and, Yes!,so addictive when you get started. Because of its more appealing advance features and a wide-free of customization capability that designed for your advantage and for every members of Squidoo. A constant updates or add-ons of modules are provided for lenmasters discretion customizing their lenses.

Lensmaster is the alias for the one who created lens or webpages within Squidoo website. A Lensmaster could manage several lenses in one account, that can be accessed in a dashboard similar to any blogging provider site like blogger or wordpress.

What is the cutting-edge of Squidoo over other social networking site?

In squidoo your lenses are regularly ranked accordingly as controlled by the intelligent algorithm or formula the squidoo use in ranking lenses.The ranking number can be seen in the upper right corner of the len or webpage. This may rise or fall according to Squidoo's algorithm. They say that the ranking is based on the combination of the rating by other members, the reputation, the click-through rates, the frequency of updating the lens, the inbound and outbound links, and more top-secret elements inside the algorithm procedures.

Basically, your lense or webpage popularity is controlled of how other members view your lense at their perpective of interest. So this would poster a good and relavant content because the lensmasters are disciplined to write up or make a lense that is of interest or passion of other members in a specific category of interests or else they would get a low ranking thus give a poor traffic to your webpage.

Squidoo categorized their lenses or webpages based on the members field of interest or expertise. Some of the categories are Arts, Automative, Business and Finance, Politics, Recreation,..., and World.

Various of modules that are ready-made plug-n-play formats are available for all lensmasters for them to easily customize their lenses. Some of the modules are Amazon, ArtbyUs, BBC, BoingBoing, Buzz Machine, CafePress, Christian Science Monitor, Church of the Customer, Cool Tools, YouTube, Digg.., and Flickr Pictures.

And for some elements of Squidoo, the site would share profit with you - just like the Ads from Adsense, Ebay, Amazon, and CafePress, for instance. So, whenever, someone buys or clicks an adsense' ad, you get a commission, same thus with Squidoo. It's really a win-win approach for everybody!

In fact , a number of my Internet Marketers I know are fun of squidooing - the term they use to pronounce when they make use of squidoo lenses for the purpose of driving a targeted traffic to their websites, thus may in return give them a good profits. They best recommend squidoo as their best alternative choice in terms of an advance social networking site ever existence on the net.

What is Blog Marketing?

Blog marketing is the use of a blog or blogs to produce traffic for the purpose of monetizing that traffic. Using a blog to market a product or merely as a means of producing online income is cheaper than using a website, a lot cheaper. This is mainly because of the availability of free blog services that are in many ways just as good as having a website you spent a boatload of money on. Because blog marketing has few barriers to entry, it is an excellent way for a beginner to get their feet wet in the Internet Marketing business.

Thanks to both the human and Search Engine demand for quality content, it's entirely possible to make serious money from creating, promoting, and maintaining blogs. Turning a blog into a cash machine is relatively inexpensive and can be done by anyone who understands the basics of marketing and the Internet.
