This is a tip-of-the-trade for my fellow warriors here. Grabbing traffic to your website is seriously one of the most pain in the a$$ experiences that we all have. However, sometimes by leveraging resources we can produce a lot of traffic with little to no work.
Materials Needed For Traffic Strategy
- Original Articles or Spun PLR Articles (doesn't matter)
- At least 50-100 articles
- Ebook Compiler
Basically you are going to take your articles and compile them into an .EXE format by using an Ebook Compiler, old school marketers will remember the old .exe books prior to PDF.
Now that you have a piece of software, because that is what an EXE file is, you can submit your software to 100's of software directories and grab two things.
One) A really nice backlink
Two) Traffic and a Mailing List
The nice backlink comes from the authority sites such as download.com, tucows.com, regnow.com, shareit.com, etc...
The mailing list is built because you require the visitors to registar before receiving your free EXE (compiled ebook)
Here is an example of what I'm talking about:
SEO Tutorial - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
Web Design, SEO and Internet Marketing Secrets 2005 - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com
You can see that the first link received 1,000 or so downloads, and the second one got 6,500 or so.
The second one being from 2005, but the first from 2009.
Yes, I know this is not 10,000 but there are 100's of software directories out there, and they don't have as harsh submission policies as EZA, on top of that, you can directly have them register to view your ebook from the link.
Bottom line, over the past three years we have used this technique, it works, and works well.
- Since we are compiling the software you don't have to worry about duplicate content, so PLR will be sufficient, however, the better the content, the better the rating, the better traffic you receive
- If you have the income, have someone create you some basic software in your niche, and publish it through these links, you may be looking at a six figure list by the end of the year
