Hey guys,

I am a complete newbie at this, but have managed to create a site that I need help driving traffic to. Take a look at it and let me know what you think and any advise on traffic would be greatly appreciated

Thanks so much,
Michele

    that opt-in page looks pretty well set up for a noobie, if you made this yourself than good job anyways here are a few things you can do to increase traffic:

    1. write articles to ezinearticles.com (post website in resource box)
    2. Post your site to high page rank blogs in your niche.
    3. Use social Bookmarking (socialmarker.com is best in my opinion)
    4. Find your niche on yahoo answers and answer questions with your website pointing out.
    5. Go to your local gas station and post fliers up.

      Point 4 get me banned from my Yahoo answers account. Be very very careful when posting a link there too whether it is relevant or not. Yahoo people are carrying Heavy machine Guns and burst the guy who ever is pasting such links.

      If you really want to show your presence there make several accounts and go ahaead with each one with a link or so as these will be banned sooner or later.

      I personally have had a very bad experience.

        The popup that keeps coming up is irritating. You should make it so that when I close it, it will not popup again.

        You can get banned for SPAMMING but I like to write a quick 50-100 word articles then post my website that way it is not likely that they will report it.

        If you do get banned you can always use a different yahoo account.

          I'd definately recommend the Bum Marketing Method. It's simple, free and I've found it to be very effective. In essence, it's article marketing but the author gives you his own, easy to follow strategy. Try it out:

          Best of luck,

    My question to you is where is your targeted customers.

    Different strategies are required for different customers.

    Wait a minute. Back the freaking truck up. How can you possibly be promoting money making product if you can't even get traffic to your site?

      First off I'm an affiliate marketer and as you see I'm not selling on the front page. It's a free offer. I came in here to find help, for new traffic strategies.

      I know all the regular ones like blogging, article marketing, and the like, but just looking for new ideas.

      I'm an affiliate marketer just getting started. I heard the Warrior forum was a great place to get help and that's why I'm here.

      Did you wait until you knew everything to make money online?

        Yeah I don't know. I was really looking more at it being your first post and you wanting people to check out a really professional site. Looked like spam, but hell if Liz is helping you that would explain it.

        Other choices would be giveaways or co-reg. Liz did a video on co-reg a couple years ago, so she would know how to do those.

      My targeted customers are in places like forums, reading blogs on making money, reading articles on making money, and the like.

      Liz Tomey helped me with that. I have to give credit where credit is due. She's my neighbor, and has been helping me get started with affiliate marketing.

      Thank you so much for the strategies you gave me. This is the exact information I need. I know enough to be dangerous right now, but need the resources like you gave me to start putting this together.

      Liz will be helping me make a traffic plan today. I just had to come to her with some strategies because she's teaching me and not doing for me. That's what I need though, right?

        Hi Michele,

        I like the look of the site, very well done! There is a grammatical error in that popup by the way, if you are interested.

        One thing I did ask myself (subconsciously) was how "Brand New" are these ideas and methods? I mean, there are a lot of things on offer on the internet and as I found myself when researching my Work-At-Home eBook, it takes a lot to land on Brand New systems.

        From a readers point of view I liked the simplicity of the site and the fact that I did not have to read a mile long page full of fake testimonials, (prob not possible with Brand New products tho) and also there was very little clutter.

        In regards to driving traffic, I agree with the fore-mentioned ideas. I am also developing this area of my business at the moment.


        Regards
        Bryce

      Hi, this is uncommon. Many self-certified IMers are selling money-making products when they dont even have the basics.

      @mgriswold224

      My targeted customers are in places like forums, reading blogs on making money, reading articles on making money, and the like.
      you have just answered your own questions. go forums, write articles and leverage on blogs.

      Cheers,
      John

    Quite a clean opt in page.

    There are lots of different tactics you can employ to get people to your site - aside from the ones already mentioned, you can try creating a simple branded video and posting it to video engines like youtube. You can also post in free classifieds (only high traffic ones like Gumtree/Craigslist).

    Since you have an opt in page set-up, you could also try joining some product giveaways to build your list.
