100 dollars to invest. SEO?

32 replies
Hi all.
I'm still trying to drive traffic to my squeeze page using free methods (Twitter and forum posting), but I have just 10 subscribers without any clicks on my affiliate links.
I have 100$ and I have doubts about investing this 100$ in Facebook CPC.
Now I'm thinking about SEO. Should I hire someone to rewrite several articles and submit it to ezine + put these articles into my squeeze page? Then I will make forum posting and blogs commenting. Can I succeed this way?

      Would be interested, too. Does this work for any keyword, or for specific ones only?

    if you want quick results SEO is not recommended. Gone are the days when a little SEO could get you fast results, actually I think they are long gone . Ranking itself for a decent keyword takes some time. You might want to look for alternatives.
    If you are planning to go for CPC, start off small. If you your budget is 100, start with as less as 20, test the waters and make your next move. I have a heard a few good things about Facebook CPC, if you know how to use it right.

    Good luck!

      In what niche are you in?

      Can we see the squeeze page?

      As far as i know traffic exchange does not perform well for all niches.

      Cheers,

    If what you are offering to your subscribers is really good quality, I would recommend using the forum's JV sub-forum and trying to offer your product/service/freebie to someone with a good list.

    They win because they can give their subscribers a good product/service/freebie, you win as you get some good subscribers.

    Not guaranteeing, but definitely worth trying..

    As for the 100$, yes you can get some good clicks from facebook, but that completely depends on your niche.

    You'd be better off actually building a website then putting the pages into articles and submitting them to ezine and article base.

    You can then add opt-in boxes to your website.

    In my opinion it's far easier (in most niches) to build a website and then get people to opt-in than to just build a squeeze page and promote that.

      What do you need your traffic to do once on your site?
      What type of business do you have?
      Where are you based?

      You have to understand these points before making a decision.

      There are limited options due to your budget, so it would be wise to make sure you chose the right method and not waste the money you do have.

    What you really want to do is build your list fast and rake in the affiliate sales ?

    If that is the case you got to invest in solo ads . It is fastest way to build your list . You are going to need a little more than $100 if you want a huge list of subscribers and rake in the affiliate sales

        it took me months to figure out how to use it to it's full potential.

        you need to create and spin some enticing tweets or "teasers" that u send out with your URL. also shorten the URL with like 8 different shorteners and spin those into the tweet as well (u dont want it posting the same exact URL for each tweet)

        there are plenty of ways to increase the followers with targeted users with the software. for example, u can follow users who follow a competitor's account.

        you could also scrape the followers of a competitor's account, and then generate your tweets in @replies to them. this alone can bring in thousands of unique visitors.

    Most Niche Experts are looking for contents to feed their blog viewers or lists.

    You may try to write up about 30 pages of ebook in your niche and give it to the experts for free where you place your squeeze page or affiliate links on it.

    Hope it help.

    Yours Sincerely

    if you need more traffic, you can always read up this forum..it has plenty of info!!!there are some that even give you high PR where you can post comment to..all this for free...the only part that you to do is WORK on it...

    you can also outsource some of the work with the $100..but sometimes the problem is not with the traffic but the landing page itself...

    Check out my sig?Maybe I can help...

      increasing the PR is done by building quality backlinks from sites with authority in search engines.

      basically, you need backlinks. lots of them. but not some crappy fiverr gig where they will blast out thousands of them, that will just sandbox your site.

      link building is best done in small blasts, maybe 800 or 1k per day at the most. and ALL urls you use for backlinks should have a PR of AT LEAST 1. anything less doesn't do any good.

      you are still going to want to build higher PR links though, pretty much PR4 and higher.

      Oh: also, DO NOT PING THEM!!!!!!

      let them index naturally. it takes time but it's important to just let them be found by engines on their own.

        I agree with the person who said hold onto your $. I don't think you're ready to spend yet. Try to learn more first. Of course you could always get lucky with your first ppc or ppv ad. Ask yourself how quickly you could replace the $100 if you try something and it doesn't work.

I'm taking action, but I really need help to know what to do with my squeeze page.. If I invest 100$ on articles and submit it to ezines + SEO work will it increase traffic on my squeeze page?

            As Aneel said, if you want quick results SEO is not recommended.

            You can try buying a solo ad in the JV section here:
            Warrior Joint Ventures

            OR you can create (or outsource) a report and give it to people who already have a newsletter and a big list, so they can give it to their subscribers for free, without any optin.

            At the end of that report, offer them the second part (or the "Missing Chapter") if they optin to your list. The thing is that you have to give away a lot of value in the first report, so they will want more. And, of course, offer a lot of value in the second report as well.

            These reports doesn't have to be 30 pages ebooks. I've given 1500 words reports, filled with great advice, with great results.

            English is not my main language neither, that's why I like to outsource most of my content. You could use those $100 to outsource the 2 reports, or to buy 2 PLR reports (good quality ones, please).

            Also, find blogs in your niche that accept guest articles. Comment on those blogs, create a relationship with the owner-writer. Soon, write them an email telling them how much you like the articles. Be specific so you won't look spammy.

            Other day, tell them that you have a great article for their readers. Ask if you could send the article for them to review it. Make sure it's a great, superb, excellent article. The deal here is that they can post your article on the blog with a link to your squeeze page. Or with a link to your free no-optin first report.

            Create a relationship with other bloggers and offer them great and exclusive articles (one article for each blog, of course).

            This way you will start branding yourself as an expert author (this is good for your future list subscribers) AND you will start having more daily visitors from these blogs as long as your articles stay there.

    You should find a facebook ad coupon credit for $100. Look around the internet. I found mine in a magazine. That should get you started

      Facebook won't approve my squeeze page..

      I want to tell very fun story... I'm in IM from April. The ammount of money I received is ZERO. (0$). Investments - more than 700$.
      Today I registered on PokerStars and playing all day (I'm not bad poker player).
      I invest 50$ and win 128,50. (78,50 net profit). I've found this very fun..

      I'm going to do 50$ per day and invest all money I earn by playing poker to my IM campaign.
      But I don't know much about SEO and the main problem is that I'm not native speaker and I can't write articles.. Forum posting for me is like a torture (I need to build credibility with people in my niche and every mistake can be a fatal..)
      That's why I think optimizing my squeeze page is the best way to build my list.. The language is my main problem.. (but I wrote very good stories in my native language, I know that I can write even sales letter, but not in English)

    $100 is probably not going to get you far in the world of SEO. SEO is all about quality, quantity and time. $100 is not going to be able to get you all three

    Thank you Alfredo!
    I have my own ebook report, I give it to my subscribers (future subscribers).
    Accordingly to my situation I have to:
    Create the second part in my report telling people (who get this report from bloggers, etc) what they will have when they will subscribe. Put the link to my opt-in where I offer another report?

      Or you can keep this as the second report (the one they optin for) and create a new first report that people (bloggers, etc) can give away for free and without optin. At the end of this first report, put a link to the squeeze page you already have.

      The new first report can be a case study of how a woman saved her relationship using one or two tips of your report (the one you already have). Stress how painful it was for the woman to have the problem.

      Then, at the end of the report, offer them your "7 things every woman..." report.

    If I were you I'd buy a copy of TheBestSpinner and then rewrite your articles.

    Then buy a few gigs on Fiverr.com to have those articles submitted through Unique Article Wizard, Article Marketing Robot and some high PR blog networks.

    This should give you a very nice boost in the SERPS.
