My Secret Strategy to create Viral Traffic and Return Visitors with ChatBoxes!

by Phil The Marketer 31 replies
Hello Warriors,

I would like to share one of my strategies in getting return visitors and
putting a Viral Twist on it also!
Hope this will benefit you so listen up!

And NO this is not SPAMMING THE HECK OUT OF CHATROOMS as some may think!
Anyhow this is a slightly long post so let me continue..

(In a nutshell)
I create chatrooms that attract people in a chosen niche, they come together
and chat and naturally build into a community within the chat.
In a short amount of time the chatroom will grow as more members
know of the chat resulting in more traffic.

The members in the chat are basically like a Opt-in list cause you have access
to them and can send them messages publicly or privately.

All the while the chat members are exposed to Advertisements,
Product recommendations, Links, etc.. and in the same note you build
trust with the people within the chat resulting in easier conversions.


And I know what your thinking..Who would want to be chatting all day right?

Well definitely not me, I have better things to do and the truth is alot of
these "chats" that I have set up run on there own and people chat at all hours
of the day everyday and have no idea who the creator of the room is!

People love chatting online especially with those with the same interest!

Okay now, your probably wondering how do I do this..
Well here you go, here is the basic Blueprint to do achieve this.


(The Resources and Strategy)
First off it is very easy..
What you have to do is create a chatroom for FREE,
Do a google search if you like, but the one I use is Chatango

and NO I am not affiliated or earning any commissions or anything like that
just to clear that up. THIS IS JUST A HUMBLE RETURN FOR ALL THE HELP EVERYONE HERE AT
THE WARRIOR FORUM HAS GIVEN ME!

At Chatango you can create a custom chatroom, with different sizes and fonts and colors.
Being the creator of the room you can moderate chat posts, ban members.

Its a simple process to create a room and in 3 steps you should have a room created.

Now you should create a Profile for yourself, this will be your Screename and Bio and you
can add a picture if you like. It is useful to do this step cause you will find most people
will prefer to message you in private.(Word of Advice, go to settings configure that to your
liking..like being emailed if you recieve an offline message, having others see your idle time, etc.)

Chatango will give you the html code that you can copy and paste and drop into any website,
this will allow you to place your Chatroom anywhere online.


--Where to place your Chatroom?--
You can place your chatroom almost anywhere that displays HTML..heres some examples

Blogger
Wordpress
Your Website
Forums
Myspace Pages
(You can even comment peoples pages and place a small version of your Chatroom in the comment!)

---The Viral Effect of This..--

Your chatroom has a convenient little button on the bottom left hand side when clicked that says
"place this chat onto your website" allowing visitors to easily click and copy and paste the code
onto there own blog, myspace, wordpress, etc.. for easy connection with the chat.

I have found that after a short period of time people were copying and pasting my chatroom
on there websites all over the place and numbers started multiplying FAST!

I had a simple Chat I built that started with maybe 5-10 unique visitors and ended up with 6,000
unique visitors within 30 days and the numbers are growing constantly! These aren't return visitors
either I have a hundred or so "return' visitors that frequent that chat daily..so there is some
retention. (Place a free stat counter on your page, StatCounter is one u can use)

But it would be impossible to calculate the actual numbers of people who see the chatroom, considering
it is being posted all over the place.


--Cool, you get Traffic but how can you turn that into money?---

If you can't already see how you can turn those visitors into money well let me explain a few things..

The Headline on Top of the Chat is my website name.. "www.MyDomain.com" everybody sees this..

Naturally people in the chat see this and are intrigued and WILL end up going to your site..
From there the strategy use us to convert visitors into buyers is no different then any other
method online..Also you can have a site that will monetize the traffic with Adsense, opt-in list,
Affiliate Links. etc..

Heres a example..

Create a chatroom targeted for people who want to talk about "WeightLoss"

Your Headline on the Chatroom would be "www.HowToLoseWeight.com" or something like that..
See how someone in the chat would just naturally end up going to your site.

Its really as simple as that..

I went ahead and created a webpage to show you what I mean about using a ChatBox cause it'll make
alot more sense if you just "SEE" it for yourself..

THIS IS BY NO MEANS A WAY TO GET SHAMELESS PROMOTION, I HAVE NO INTENTIONS ON DOING ANYTHING WITH
THIS SITE IT WAS CREATED SOLELY FOR THE PURPOSE OF HAVING EVERYONE GET A VISUAL IDEA OF MY STRATEGY.

AND PLEASE..DONT JUST COPY MY EXACT LAYOUT I KNOW ALOT OF MARKETERS ON HERE REFRAIN FROM SHOWING PEOPLE
ACTUAL SITES..JUST USE THIS FOR YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING OF THE STRATEGY AND APPLY YOUR OWN TACTICS TO IT OKAY-

Well there you go one of my secret strategies to create traffic online, hope this information becomes
valuable to you and if you have any questions feel free to PM me, THANKS WARRIORS.

Heres a demonstration of the strategy, took me 30 minutes to create and costed ZERO..Enjoy

    • I have to also state that I found that using the the 'chatango' platform combined with targeted keywords on my site has giving me high first page ranking on ALOT of keyword with the results showing up as "mysitename.chatango.com"..sorta like how a video shows up with a youtube link only difference is its a chat not a video, Dont' know why search engines like it so much but I've had pages indexed and ranked in a few days before using that combination.

      To add chat for your site users makes your site interactive for them and can discuss whatever you have on your site or come up with suggestions.

            Hopefully it will benefit your guys business, remember you can change the size of the chatroom, it doesn't have to be that big or laid out the way i created that demonstration.

            I've seen my chats posted on myspace in peoples comments out of nowhere!

            Theres a few more benefits once you create the room and create a profile, you'll see what i mean when you do it, like being able to place more links in your signature for people to click and also maintaining a 'buddy list' in which you can chat privately..Goodluck!

          Hi Phil,

          That's an excellent idea--Thanks a lot for sharing!

          One thing I was curious about is how well the traffic that you generate through this method converts?

          Do you have any rough figures or statistics to share? Just thought I'd ask because I've read about how traffic from certain social bookmarking sites hardly converts well or is only useful for short bursts of traffic. So am curious about how well this works long-term?

          Thanks a lot!

              Thank you Phil,
              this is a great idea.

              Chatango has a PR of 5 so this can probably help
              as well.

            I've only been doing it for the past 6 months and so far certain niches I created seem that they will last long term, some chats of course that I made had a burst of traffic and then slowly died..but a lot are still solid and even if theres not a huge amount of traffic i do notice return visitors coming to "check up" on anything new.

            In terms of conversion its so hard to get an exact number or ratio of visitors/to buyers, but I do notice steady sales and steady adsense earnings with this one method of traffic generation. hope that sorta helps.
