Increase Article Click Throughs

21 replies
Hi all, I have been doing article marketing for a number of years, and through varied testing and trying, I have discovered one neat trick to convert views into clicks.

What I do is, after I include the url of the site I want to promote in my Resource Box, I add a second line that simply says " Remember To Add Me On Facebook". This, as I have noticed, increases the likelyhood of readers joining your related fanpage, since social media is the IN thing these days.

Try it and see if it works for you. Have a great weekend!

P.S Remember to include your URL in your fanpage/Facebook profile as well

      Awesome tip. Fan pages are hidden opt-in pages so it is pretty useful

    That's a great tip because people may feel more comfortable doing that than signing up directly to another list or buying something. I'm just curious--have you noticed any change in the number of clicks for the other link you post though?

      Tracy, admittedly, I do get slightly less clicks for the main link, but remember, I always include that link in my fanpage, so it offsets the reduction of clicks. So in the end, I get a higher CTR rather than just posting the main url only..

    Thanks for the tip. Apparently, it's been working well.

    You could try it with Twitter as well...

    But article marketing is dead, right? Ha ha.

    It can be a good way to think about the long term, strategies like this.

    Social Media is in, building a subscriber base is in, etc.

    I think the best strategy would be one link sending to a list building squeeze page and the other to a Facebook fan page, what do you think?

      That'd be the best of both worlds, and while your first link could also send them to a blog/landing page with an opt-in form on it, I think a dedicated squeeze page would probably yield a higher opt-in rate.

        Yes, a well structured squeeze page can yield some prett good subscriber opt ins as well..But never neglect the power of a fanpage!!

    I don’t care how well optimized that article is, or how long tail the targeted keywords are, if your title sucks, then you are doomed from the offset. But writing good titles isn’t just about being clever with words or promising the world – it’s about getting visitors to your site, and doing that – quite seriously is not all that difficult to do.
