Online Marketing: Five Fun Ideas that Increase Traffic
by Catherine Franz
1. Using Hidden Links to increase subscribers or for a
contest. Place a not so easy to find link in your copy and
then ask people to find it. Give them a prize or freebie for
finding it. Or you can give them the ebook after they find
the link and click on it. By burring it inside the
material, they will definitely need to read it carefully in
order to find it.
2. Have unique information? Start a member-only web site
or ezine. Tell subscribers what they will receive for
joining. Offer free memberships in exchange for something
3. Use viral marketing by increasing awareness about your
product or service on discussion boards or blogs? Exchange
your product or service with others who mentioned you on
specific boards or blogs. You will need to track all these,
so you will want to keep it simple.
4. Help others set up an instant article directory. Offer
your articles to be posted on their web site. This works
well for others who do not write. It also creates links and
increases search engine status for both of you.
5. Create a book web site. You can do this in lieu of
offering a free ebook. Market it as a free web book. The
term is seldom used and builds curiosity. Design the web
pages with a title page, table of contents, chapters, etc.
Then place your ad or banner for your product or service on
the top and bottom of every page.
