Best way of getting traffic to squeeze page?

Profile picture of the author Confined To Life by Confined To Life Posted: 11/18/2012
In email marketing, the goal is to build your list. To do that, you need to get traffic to your squeeze page. Obviously having a well converting squeeze page is important, but I want to talk about traffic.

What is the best way of getting traffic to a squeeze page? Is it okay if my website is literally just a squeeze page and I create backlinks on other websites to that squeeze page? OR do I need another site (perhaps on the same domain as my squeeze page) with my own content that draws people into the squeeze page (e.g. a blog)? Personally, I think it would be easier to manage a 1-page site rather than a blog and the squeeze page, managing a blog is a task in itself. What's the best way to go here?

    There are hundreds of ways, but what you want is what is best for your traffic.

    Personally I use PPV, Youtube, and handful of others.

    Confined, that's a couple of very broad questions...

    Regarding the type of site, the goal of building the list is to maintain it long-term and provide value to them. How you accomplish that is your choice, whether it's through a newsletter, a blog or another means.

    On traffic, there are dozens of methods, many very good ones. These need to be chosen based on your niche and your talents. Social Media, Solo Ads, Article Marketing... the list goes on and on...

    I like social media marketing, a lot.
    You could just use the one squeeze page, with that, potentially.

    I just want to know if I'll need to setup more than just the squeeze page. If I can generate good amounts of traffic to that page via external sources (videos, social media, PPC, etc) then I won't need another page like a blog or authority site.

    to make another traffic source yourself to bring in traffic will take a lot of time. Consider media buying from the sites in your niche... that's the best advice anybody can give you. Find sites, contact, negotiate deals of banners, links etc...

    It also depends on the niche, for some of them ppc would be good...

    just an example: last month I negotiated a deal with one site that put my link in his main menu. I had 1,213 clicks with conversion rate of >8%, + I got a a laser targeted list now) hope it hepls

    Either is fine. You could split-test by doing each of the two.

    But at some stage, you will have to create good quality content to keep your business inthe mind of your readers. There's unlikely to be any escape from that unless your niche is more of an exception rather than a regular one...

    Well, you'll need some sort of thank you page at the very least, preferably with an offer... or one leading to an offer. Or, I suppose you can just send people to an affiliate site, but that will reduce the branding.

    And with listbuilding, you want to also build a relationship with your list, not send them offers. And for that and other reasons, having a blog is very helpful.

    The problem is I won't be starting out with much money. I will only have enough for the minimal stuff. I want to spend my earnings on PPC but I can't use PPC and whatnot to get those earnings.

    Either is fine. You could split-test by doing each of the two.

    Where do I host this good quality content? Is it just the good stuff I'm emailing them on Aweber or do I need an actual base of information somewhere?

    One of the best ways to get traffic is to offer to either BUY or PARTNER on major blogs that a have a product they sell. You then have your offer (squeeze page) on their own thank you page. The list you build from a thank you page are buyers. An opt in list of buyers is so much more valuable.

    Since you want to send directly to a squeeze page you'll need to try and purchase that real estate (their thank you page).

    You want to set up a sales funnel to get the most from the traffic you drive to your squeeze page.

    the best thing I can recommend to you is to write your squidoo lense, build backlinks to the lense and it'll rank in google page 1 and it'll get your squeeze page trffic.

    Don't forget to link the squidoo lense to the squeeze page by placing a link.

    IN short if you want traffic:
    do all things when it comes to traffic, all free traffic you know, etc.. but you just need to manage on how to do the mass promotion to get targeted traffic so you won't feel it's like a bad choice.. Otherwise it'll result profitable business to you (if you manage it well).
    Schedule when to post this, go to this forum several times in a day, etc.

    You get my point ,right?

    There really isn`t any secrets to it

    You just have to get a plan together and stick to it each and every day and you will start
    to see results

    Start off using free traffic and then as you progress maybe throw a few paid methods
    in there as well

    Here are a few traffic methods to use to build your list

    Forums
    Articles
    Videos
    Blog
    solo ads
    ad swaps
    ppc
    blog comments

    nothing ground breaking but the old school methods still actually work so don`t listen to
    anyone that tells you they don`t :-)

    I need to rephrase my question.

    I'm not sure If I understood your question..

    Anyway, I have my blog as my main domain and I set up squeeze pages by simply adding folders in my control panel.

    You do know that you will have more than just one squeeze page, right?

    best ways to get traffic?

    Start by blogging, putting a nice signature in your profile and start getting into discussions, you can do a little ad swaps here and there but don't rape your list with them.

    you can try and purchase one solo ad from Igor Kheifets.

    find a solo ad rolodex and check out the recommendations.

    go to yahoo answers and help people in your niche.

    etc..etc..

    Ah yes, that's excellent information. I forgot about Aweber's lightbox function. Not only can I have an opt-in in the top-right, but I can also use that on my blog. Sweet, thanks! Blog it is!

    - Do a free WSO that leads to a nice opt-in form
    - Make a guest post on someone's blog and refer back to the squeeze page
    - Solo ads - Buy 250 clicks for like $90 and if you have a well thought out email campaign + funnel structure you can make that back in a flash

    Hope that helped!
