5) Submit your article to other peoples' BLOGs. BLOGs are easy to find because web site owners are always adding them to front page of their sites so that you can't miss them.
The challenge of owning a BLOG is contributing to it every day. It's easy to do for first couple of weeks but then that dedication slips.
So, approach a BLOGger with your article and suggest they include it to their BLOG if they ever get in a bind and can't make a posting of their own one day. Chances are, you'll see your article posted within week!
6) Submit your article to RSS feeds. RSS stands for "Real Simple Syndication," which essentially means you add your article to list once and it will appear on potentially hundreds of other peoples' web sites. Search Google for "rss articles submission" to get you started.
7) Have something ready on your web site to inspire any new visitors to get more involved with your business. I'm not saying put hard sell on them. Just offer some way for them to discover more about how you can help them.
Provide more articles for them to read. Maybe add a sound file or two. Have a newsletter subscription area. Offer a free tele-seminar or webinar. Be creative but captivating. Have a definite answer to question, "How can my new web site visitors benefit from being on my web site for another couple of minutes?"
Follow these seven steps and there's a good chance you will not only increase your web site visitors with targeted traffic, but that visitation could happen more quickly than you might expect.
So, don't allow your potential sales for this year's Summer months to be "terminated" before they even have a chance to happen.
Take action this week and July and August could turn out to be two of your best sales months yet.
