Offer Traffic-Driving Incentives - Sign Up Contests
(Page 4 of 4 )
Want to get a lot of new traffic to your site? You can always consider hosting a sign-up contest which rewards users for the amount of visitors they bring in to the site. This is sort of like a referral program, with a twist. This time, traffic is competing to see how many new users they can compel to the site. The contest could run for a week, a month, as long as you decide -- but at the end, whomever has the most new traffic attributed to them is a winner.
Contests traditionally come with a prize or reward at the end. This is the incentive they get for telling all their friends to join your site. Make sure you offer some goal for them to strive toward, as this will create excitement for your contest and give it a much better chance of succeeding. When traffic has a good reason to participate, they usually will. A sign up contest is a great way to spread the word about your site, create excitement among your existing users and perhaps even help you get some new traffic to increase your overall site revenue.
You do a lot to increase the amount of visitors your site receives, but you donít have to bear the responsibility alone. Make it easy and rewarding for your visitors to spread the word, and they will. People who use the Internet are used to interacting with their Web sites and usually enjoy participation. By offering traffic-driving incentives on your pages, youíre involving them in the overall success of your site - and youíre helping them to create a base of friends with which they can share the information and features of your space. Youíre giving them more, and youíre getting more traffic because of it. Arenít incentives great?
