Writing and distributing articles: Articles can become viral and drive qualified traffic to your website. Include a resource box at end of your article that features a link back to your site.
Buying ezine ads: Because these ads are targeted, you will see traffic. Be sure to measure effectiveness of your ad and your cost per visitor!
Pop Under advertising campaigns: Cheap, but you have to know how to properly set-up a pop under campaign. Read this article for some tips for a successful advertisement: http://www.cnetcs.com/tips.htm A well-designed pop under campaign can bring lots of cheap visitors, but most advertisers send visitors to a page that is not especially designed to convert visitors into customers or subscribers.
PopIn (layer) ads: A good option: Cheap and effective. PopIn ads receive a click trough rate of 1.0% - 2.0% (some popin layer ads receive a CTR of up to 5%).
And one last thing: The industry visitor to customer conversion rate is about 1.0% - 2.0% only if everything else – web design, sales copy, product, prices, etc – is perfect!
That means that you will need 10,000 ad exposures to get one hundred TARGETED visitors (1.0% click trough rate), to convert one of them to a customer (1.0% conversion rate)!
If you make any profits, your web site is a winner! Just buy more ad exposures to make more profits!
