Get Traffic To Your Website,

7 Ways To Get Targeted Traffic

List building step 3 – get traffic to your opt-in form, squeeze page, on your website or blog is crucial in your step by step program and effort to build a targeted and responsive email list. Without traffic or visitors to your site nothing happens.

Please make sure to review my other posts on list building and make sure you get the right autoresponder.

Traffic is indeed hugely important and its importance can’t be overemphasized.

However, it needs to be stressed (and this is not done nearly enough) that the traffic you’re looking for has to be targeted.

It will do you no good if you get all kinds of traffic and the visitors to your site will leave right away because what they find is not what they were looking for.

That is why you need to do some keyword research.

#1 – Keyword Research, Search Engine Optimization-SEO

To get targeted traffic you need to use the right keywords, more specifically keyword phrases. That is how your blog or website is found in the search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing.

Search Engine Optimization or SEO is a big subject for this post but you must use keyword phrases in your titles and text that are relevant to your topic and blog or website niche.

That way the people who will land on your pages will be your targeted audience or at least will have an idea what to expect and will be interested in what they find on your site.

#2 – Write A Good And Valuable Content

Make sure you post a content that is of good value to your readers and visitors. You want them to stay and read for a while and to find such value that they will want to come back.

Make sure that your content is your original work, that you are contributing to the internet community. The search engines will reward you for originality too.

Answer your readers comments and develop a relationship with them.

#3 – Link To Websites That Are Related And Well Liked By Google

Most people will resist doing this thinking that it will cause their visitors to leave.

Some of the visitors may do so but the benefits of your site or blog reaching out and linking to other sites will far outweigh any visitor leakage.

#4 – Comment On Other Websites And Blogs

Leave valuable comments on other blogs. Please don’t just say “I agree with you” or “very nice post”. That is not a comment but a lip service amounting to a spam.

A good and valuable comment is adding value. If you can’t write comments of value that are longer than 4 lines of text don’t bother.

But good comments will get you noticed and besides getting a link to your blog or site they may even bring you some visitors.

You can also join forums related to your niche and comment there. If you do a good job at it some people will want to visit your blog or website to find out more about you and what you have to offer.

#5 – Join Social Media, Facebook, Twitter

You can find people through social media sites and form contacts and relationships there.

Whatever you do, don’t be just interested in selling your stuff. Be interested in other people, build relationships, form friendships and network.

#6 – Post Videos On You Tube

You can post videos on You Tube about yourself, your business and your hobbies.

Include your blog or website links in the video.

#7 – Put your Blog Or Website URL Into Your Email Signature

This is such an easy thing to do that you can implement it right away.

Whether you write lots of emails like most people or just one or two per day it really doesn’t matter. Once you have your email signature in place it will be there forever and people will see it every time they receive an email from you.

If they click on your URL in that email you have another visitor.

Who knows, they may even opt into your mailing list if they like your blog.

Get Traffic Conclusion:

There are of course more ways to get traffic to your website or your blog and to your opt in box inside of them.

I cannot possibly cover everything here. Please leave me a comment if you are unclear about anything that I’ve written or if you would like me to expand on any particular point.

I will definitely answer you to the best of my ability. I may not have the answer to all questions but I will go and find it if I don’t.

I hope that I have given you some basic information in this post on list building steps, step 3 -get traffic to your opt-in form.

List building step 2make free opt-in offer is the second vital step in successful list building. Without it, it will be very hard if not impossible to have people opt in to or join your email list.

(If you’ve missed List Building Step 1 – Get Autoresponder it is crucial that you go through it. And get the free e-book List Building With Alex.)

Unless you offer your blog or website visitors something valuable, they will have no reason to join your mailing list. Why would they?

And whatever you offer them needs to be free of charge. Otherwise, they are not likely to respond.

People, your site visitors, need to get a taste of what you have to offer them. They don’t know you and they most likely don’t trust you either.

People don’t like to be sold to especially by somebody they know nothing about. Even if they know you they want to check out and get a sample of what you have.

People love to buy from their friends or at least from people they know and trust.

We will get to building relationship with people that are on your list later.

Right now we need to learn about attracting them to our opt-in form and have them give you their name and e-mail.

Your opt in form should be prominently displayed above the fold of the web page and if you so choose even in the body of your post.

There are marketers who recommend displaying the opt in box up to 3 times per page.

You can point out to your opt in box and what is behind it in your post text as well like this:

To receive more free information on list building please fill out your first name and email address in the form provided and press the big button under it.

Have you opted in? I certainly hope so. If not, please do it now.

Your name and email is safe with me and will never be given out to anybody. I love and use AWeber and hate spam. AWeber is spam proof. You can opt out any time.

Make A Free Opt In Offer,

But What?

You can create your own report or e-book. It doesn’t have to be of big proportions, 5 to 50 pages is good.

Or you can offer a subscription to your newsletter.

If you are just starting like me, you can use a product that you have a license to and can give out freely.

Please make sure that you have the rights to do so in writing. Not everything that you purchase can be used in this way.

In fact it is very rare and you need to purchase the rights. Many so PLR (Private Label Rights) products can be sold but not given away for free.

Once you make sure you can use a product that you haven’t created yourself you need to ensure that it is a high quality product. Nobody will be happy with your offer if it is not.

I’m using Alex Jeffreys List Building With Alex e-book because I have been granted the rights and permission to do so.

It is an e-book of the highest quality that could easily be a required reading for all internet marketers who want to build a mailing list.

I’m currently working on my own product that I’ll be using as a free offer for list building as well. It may take from 1 month to 9 weeks to have it ready.

Once it is available all my readers will be able to get it here.

As soon as I learn how to create my own product and create it successfully I will share with you how I did it.

I hope that this post was helpful to you. Please ask any questions you may have about list building and give your suggestions in the comments.

Not everything may have been covered so far but there should be no doubt about the importance of List Building Step 2 : Make Free Opt-in Offer.

Is Alex Jeffreys Coaching

All Style & No Substance?

Alex Jeffreys coaching style wakes people up from the very start. He will have you glued to your chair and hanging on to his every word. But is it just Alex’s style that is mesmerizing ?

Are people being hypnotized by his star-like performance and his quick rise to internet marketing success? Are they left empty when it’s over?

I am Alex Jeffreys student and I will answer the above questions. I paid Alex a good amount of money for his mentoring and therefore I have the right to speak up.

Alex Jeffreys Style

Alex has a very convincing way of speaking. It makes people feel like he’s speaking from the heart and means every word he says.

I have been fooled on occasion and therefore can’t trust my instincts 100%. But as deep as I dig, so far I have not detected the tiniest trace of insincerity in Alex. I know of no other student who has.

Alex Jeffreys Attention To Students – Communication

When Alex has a live webinar, he actually reads the box that is there for communicating with the audience. And he replies to whatever his students type there immediately. This is before and after the coaching module lesson or session.

During the live session when he’s lecturing he has a member of his staff answering anything that students type into the communication box if it’s a general question. Alex answers all questions directed at him when he’s done lecturing.

In the numerous webinars that I’ve attended not put on by Alex this kind of communication is unheard of. Alex also responds to his students in the students forum. This is very rare as well.

Alex stays on after giving his coaching program session and speaks to every student that wants to speak with him.

This is something that never ever happens with other so called gurus. Please let me know in your comments if you know of anybody else who does this.

Important Note:

Alex is not paying me to write this post and knows nothing about it. I’m free to write the truth and nothing but the truth.

Even if he paid me (and I wish he did) to write about him I would still write what I know to be factual and wouldn’t leave anything out.

Since nobody is perfect I promise you that by the end of this article I will let you in on at least one thing where Alex Jeffreys is not perfect. He after all is human too.

Alex Jeffreys Substance

By substance I mean the actual goods Alex delivers.

Is it all smoke and mirrors?

The answer is an unequivocal no.

As far as I’m concerned Alex Jeffreys not only delivers what he promised he gives you much more.

What Was Expected – What Was Delivered

What I expected from the limited coaching and mentoring program was to come out with an internet marketing system that I could use. A system which once learned and applied completely would be able to stand on it’s own and make money.

Alex has provided that and delivered not one but two of his products that can be monetized. He also provided instructional videos so that a virtual newbie like me can set up the whole system which stands on its own and can be readily expanded upon.

It is an independent system. Alex won’t get a penny of your profits ever. The system is on your hosting company’s server and you have a 100% control over it.

Unexpected Things Also Delivered

This will be a partial list because:

1) The coaching is still in the process

2) This post is getting a bit long and I don’t want to overkill it

3) I have to deliver on the promise of finding an imperfection with Alex’s stuff.

What was totally unexpected was getting not only the system itself but also the Forward To Basics – Not Back To Basics – How To Run Business coaching and materials. This part alone could easily be worth half the money spent on the entire program.

It includes Coaching On How To Plan in 3 areas and Creating Your Lifestyle: Your Business Plan, Your Entrepreneurial Plan and Your Personal Plan.

Alex also shows you How To Get Organized, Focused and How To Avoid Being Overwhelmed.

I never expected Alex to introduce me and all the other students to other outstanding internet marketers and business super minds Like Rich Schefren and Andrew Fox.

Alex mentors not only the basics but transitions you to the top game of internet marketing.

I had no idea about being able to participate in Alex Jeffreys Students Forum.

And most of all I didn’t expect that Alex would keep in touch with his students when the coaching comes to an end.

The last sentence has not come into being yet since the coaching has not yet concluded but based on all the promises fulfilled so far I will take it at face value.

Imperfections With Alex Or His Stuff

Here I want to ask all former and present Alex Jeffreys students to comment.

I do want to be 100% factual and want to present an overall view. Being imperfect myself I need your help to point out anything that I will have missed on this point.

Please give me the dirt on Alex, not personal stuff of course but in regards to his coaching program, course, style, substance etc.

The one thing that Alex doesn’t do everybody wishes he did:

Alex doesn’t do all the work for you. This is one big shortcoming that he’ll have to work on.

He gives you the system and shows you how to set it up. He points you in the right direction and educates you on how to do things.

If and when he is able to do everything for everybody he will be the perfect dream internet marketing guru and teacher.

Until that happens, people will keep on writing, discussing and pontificating about Alex Jeffreys coaching style and substance.

Why Learn List Building

With Alex Jeffreys Student?

To learn list building on your own is certainly possible but to avoid many mistakes,
learning along with a student of Alex Jeffreys makes good sense.

Alex has built and is building his mailing list very successfully. For him targeted opt in list and email marketing is the foundation of his activities and success.

The student, Vance Sova considers list building to be the most important activity and foundation builder for any business in general and the foundation for internet marketing business in particular.

He’s not just mimicking Alex Jeffreys. Vance has thoroughly investigated the importance of building a mailing list.

O.K., I’m Vance Sova and I’m the student. I’m learning from Alex Jeffreys and with him. The methods Alex uses work. You can get his free e-book on list building and learn his methods from it now.

But both Alex and Vance still keep learning.

Like everything else the methods and ways to build a responsive email list constantly evolve and change.

Alex is busy developing business and marketing systems and takes more global view on things. He is not much into details now. He’s in the high big league.

Vance, on the other hand, is in the process of mastering the art of list building. He is closer to your level than Alex and therefore will be thrilled to share with you everything he learns about list building as he learns it and implements it. He will share with you what works, what works the best and what doesn’t work.

Right, I’ll go back to using “I” for a while. I just get tired using it all the time.

Well, I want to share with you that building a list is both easy and hard. It is easy when you listen to people who have done it. It is very hard to do it from zero, from scratch.

Even Alex says that it is easy BUT it does take time. It took other now successful internet marketers 3 or more years to build a significant and large email list. Even Alex took more than a year.

If you read the articles available on the internet about list building you’ll find that most of them will give you points or steps that you need to implement. But they are all just a summary.

You certainly can’t implement any of them without further instructions that would tell you more closely what to do and how to do it.

Virtually everybody who touches the list building subject steers away from it very quickly.

It is not a get rich quick scheme and it is not therefore a big and popular money maker.

It could also be that the big wigs and gurus who seem to get the big chunk of internet marketing niche profits are reluctant to create more competition for themselves.

But if you and I don’t learn how to build a list we will always be at the mercy of get rich quick schemes and those who profit from them.

I’ve decided to learn everything about list building that I can from what is available on the net and from Alex Jeffreys and develop a method that anyone can follow.

Aside from Alex’s e-book I have yet to find anything that would fit the method that I just described.

If it exists I’ll find it soon and will let you know exactly where I found it. My mission will thus be accomplished and I’ll continue building my list without writing one more word on the subject.

I invite you to please let me know in your comments of any comprehensive and yet concise list building course aside from that of Alex Jeffreys.

Also, please let me know what you’d like to learn about list building and any helpful tips you may have discovered. We can all work together on this without forming a list building club. At least for now.

I looked into a list building club which is readily available on the internet and I’m not convinced that it is what I’m looking for. (That club is a paid club incidentally).

There has to be a better way.

I’m writing this post to challenge myself as well as you the readers.

Let’s learn list building with Alex Jeffreys, Vance Sova, Everybody. Let’s learn list building together.
