Most of the people who begin to build residual income with home internet business (we call them newbies) all begin with the same question. Now that I have my brand new website, how do I get people to recognise it?
Do I have to spend money for expensive advertising? How do I do it? The simple answer is no. Unfortunately, so many new people seem to make this a more difficult issue than this really is.
Newbies generally spend a lot of time with things like ezine solo ads, banner exchanges, free classified sites, forum posting etc. So did I! Why? Because I had the plan to make residual income some time after the start and I blindly followed the training lesson.
Now, I am not saying these methods are ineffective ways to send free traffic to the web site. I have done all of them myself. What I am saying is that there is a longer lasting, more efficient way, and it will bring in not only free traffic, but highly targeted traffic.
And you can get residual income without doing anything. How can you do this, if you have just started and do not know so much about promoting? Simply by writing articles and submitting them for directories.
Articles are the most sought after content online because they are what people are looking for new, fresh content. Most webmasters are looking for new content for their websites so that they can have something to keep their visitors coming back.
And think about search engines, they are always hungry for fresh content. Let us look at a possible case rapidly. In this case, let us pretend that your site is about making residual income. You want to get visitors to your site so that you can sell them affiliate programs and related products about the possibility to make residual income.
This is a simplified breakdown of a process you can use to build constant traffic from residual income buffs and people looking for exactly what you are selling. First step, Write some articles about home internet business.
Remember to pick right key phrases for each article. They do not have to be Pulitzer Prize winners, just your own style. Just make sure they offer something useful and will catch the attention of a reader and inform them of something they either do not know or want to hear about making residual income.
Second step. Add about the author box to the bottom of your articles. This is a very important step. Your author box is to identify you as the author and to tell your readers that they can find more information about ways to make residual income by visiting your website.
Be sure to place your website link in this box. It is your ad. Third step. Check spelling and grammar of the articles to make sure they do not contain any spelling errors or words out of place.
Every article must build trust and present you as an expert on your field. No one takes anything seriously from a poorly written article that is full of mistakes.
Fourth step. Submit your articles to directories, where others can find them to read. Also, allow others to use your articles free with your author box intact on their own websites.
You will be surprised at the extra traffic you will gain, plus you will also gain one way links back to your site from other sites online. Submit your articles to niche directories related to your article topic.
This is an important step because people will go to these niche directories only looking for information on your topic.
Fifth step. Article submission is not a once in the year process , but a constant work. You can do this for every website you own. You will be amazed at the results.
Over time, the more content you can create and submit to these niche directories, the faster your traffic will grow and the more your site will generate residual income.
Writing articles must be a habit, the more articles have been circulated, the more residual income they will bring. Do you see how easy this all is?
Do not quit doing the other things you do to generate traffic, as they all will serve their purpose but make sure to spend your time most on the simple things that will generate the best outcome. And residual income.
