All online businesses need traffic to succeed but if you are an Affiliate Marketer it is one of the most important things you need. You are going to need to use several or all of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your website.
Writing articles and submitting them to article directories has got to be the number one way of getting targeted traffic to your site. Make sure your article is well written and you put a link to your website in the resource box.
My second favourite is blogging, people love reading blogs, especially if you make them personal. let your readers get to know you and they will soon start to trust your judgement and start clicking on your links.
Make sure you include links to your website in all your forums signatures. The best way to do this is by using your keywords as anchor text. Don’t try to sell things in your posts, just take part in the discussions and offer help where you can, the more the members get to know you, the more likely they are to visit your site.
If you use them properly email campaigns can direct loads of targeted traffic to your website. You can make sure you do this properly by sending relevant information in emails to your list and including a link back to your website, either in the content itself or as a p.s.
Social Bookmarking sites are great for driving targeted traffic to your website, sign up for a few of them and every time you put something new on your website or blog then submit that page. Be careful here though and make sure you submit other peoples too or you will get banned.
