This is the second blog about getting highly targeted traffic. Today we want to look at turning your subscribers into raving fans.

Every business should have a blog as part of the strategy to get traffic. Your blog must have interesting high quality content that will attract attention.

The most essential part of your blog is the content. If you don’t have quality content there, you will not attract the traffic. And we know if we do not have traffic we will not have sales. Therefore, you must present content that is keyword rich and it will attract people to your site.

Some people only have a blog as their site. To create a blog and get traffic to it, you need for that traffic to spread the word about your blog. You want to get traffic because this is where you will find some customers.

I will list some ways that I believe will help you.

1. Post great content. You want to only post unique content that will provide value to your readers. If you do this they will keep coming back to see what you are posting.

2. Make you blog look great. Your blog has to be pleasing to the eye so it appeals to your readers. Match the theme to your subject matter. If you are creating a blog about golfing, get a golf theme or if it is about fishing get a fish theme. Make sure that you layout is easy to read and navigate.

3. Create a blog with your users in mind. Ensure that it is organized and has categories and tags.

4. Your blog must be able to load quickly.

5. Your blog must contain content that people want to read.

6. Your readers want to look at a site that is visually attractive and filled with information.

7. Your blog should only contain information that is relevant to your subject line. Don’t try and show sales messages.

8. Your blog can be written in a conversational way but must have correct grammar and punctuation. Use a spell check to make sure there are no errors. Ensure that the information you are giving is accurate and informative.

9. Regularly post more content to your blog.

10. Have an RSS feed as this will help drive traffic to your blog.

11. One way to spark interest from your readers is to finish your blog with a question. Invite your visitors to leave a comment.

So go and put a post on your blog. I want you to start attracting traffic to your site.

ScreenHunter_01 Feb. 22 11.28Today, I am going to show you how to get highly targeted traffic from the web. The internet is a place where people can connect with one another and share information online.

On the internet, there are a lot of communities like blogs and the various social media sites like Facebook and Twitter and there are video sharing sites like the popular Youtube and then there are social book marking sites like Digg, Reddit and Stumbleupon and these sites allow you to share information.

Now the question is how are we going to get targeted traffic? That is just what I am going to divulge to you.

My aim with this blog is to show you ways to get lots of free traffic. Thanks to the internet we, as users, have a high level of interaction with other users. Social networking sites are a goldmine when it comes to getting traffic.

The first port of call is to go to forums in your niche. On most forums you are allowed a signature link where you can insert your URL. Now this may be after a specific number of threads you answer or it may be a time factor before you are allowed a signature link. Different forums have different rules.

When you give meaningful information on different threads it will allow people to want to know more from you and they will click on your link and go to your website. The traffic you get from forums is always highly targeted to your particular market.

Some marketers are still not using these methods to get traffic.
Next create free accounts at these sites and start building a community there – include a link back to your main site.

YouTube
Squidoo
LinkedIn
Facebook
MySpace
Twitter

There are others and I will mention them in another blog. When you create a profile on these site, go and spend some time there and see your community and following grow.

Social networking sites allow you to belong to different groups. These groups allow you to discuss any topic you want and it generally allows you to share information.

Social sites allow you to share videos and you can find that by sharing videos here it can go viral. Always remember to include your link on your videos so that you can get traffic to your website.

Once you have written your blog there is a plug-in that can repost your information on as many social sites as you want. You must sign up to these sites to enable you to do this. If you have a WordPress site just add the plug-in Shareaholic and chose where you want to republish your information.

So next blog, I will send you ways to turn your customers into raving fans.

I want to give you some advice on how you can enjoy your time working in your internet marketing business.  This is how to best employ your time and we all know that time management is important.

The first thing is that you treat it as a business and this will help you a great deal. This is the place where you eventually want to make your living. You maybe only working there part time at the moment but you are looking at eventually giving up your day “job” in favor of working full time online.

Always be positive – associate with positive people. If something does go wrong, fix it up and move on. Do not feel defeated but just progress forward.

Always write your plans down both long term and short term and even what you want to accomplish every week then break it down to what you want to achieve every day. This will help you to stay focused. Know how long it is going to take. It is much more powerful to write these goals down and see yourself achieving them. Pick one project at a time. This will allow you greater focus.

You will never achieve unless you are prepared to take action. Without action you will never move forward.

Select times when you check you emails and skype messages – unless you are waiting for a particular answer. I suggest first thing in the morning and before you close down are great times. Staying in skype chat rooms can be a great time waster. Another place that you can waste precious time is in forums. Forums are a great place to ask questions and get help but you can get caught there and the time will just fly. So I would suggest that the maximum time in a forum is 30 minutes a day.

Always ensure that you take breaks away from your computer. Get up and stretch every hour and make sure that you drink a lot of water. Water helps to flush out any toxins that can accumulate in your system. Avoid sodas because they are full of sugar and apart from helping add to your weight, they are not good for you.

Now that does sound strange that I am saying that failure is part of your success. There has never been anyone who hasn’t had some type of failure before they have succeeded. Historically, there were a number of people who failed before they were successful.  Edison took 10,000 attempts before he invented the electric light bulb; Henry Ford’s engineering team took a year before they built an eight cylinder car; Edmund Hillary failed on his first attempt to climb Everest but went back the next year and he was successful and there are many more who have appeared to fail but then became very successful.

If you feel that you have had a failure – just learn from it and give yourself permission to move on from it. Don’t beat yourself up and wallow in that “why me” state. You have to change what you are doing so you will achieve a different result.

Life in general gives us lots of challenges along the way. If you are trying to succeed online and haven’t to date, can you tell me the reason why? Is it lack of time, lack of commitment or do you lack the knowledge to help you move forward, or do you need help to be successful? My coach/mentor, Craig Caron, has totally restructured List Driven Profits Workshop and you can now get into this course for a one off payment of $27. He wants to help as many people as he can and he is a great coach.

Craig will show you how to create your own product, and most importantly how to build a list were you will be able to sell to your subscribers. Craig teaches you via live and recorded and webinars and is always available to help you.

Hey don’t do it for me – do it for yourself. Make the year of the Snake your year. Come take a look what he is providing. If you listen to the video you will hear that Craig was charging $97 for this course but when you click on the button you will see that you are only going to have to pay $27. That is a great offer.
