"Get 5000 Visitors In The Next 30 Days-->Guaranteed!"
You've seen headlines like this one. Perhaps you've even
purchase the HIT GENERATION service in the hope that it might
sky-rocket your online business success.
These days-->with the sophisticated tracking software used by
many hit generation businesses, it is possible for people to
actually deliver on their promise and produce traffic at you
site. In fact, they can even produce TARGETTED traffic-->people
interested in the kind of offers you make on your site.
Seriously, does that increased traffic really make a difference.
Sadly, for most sites, the answer it NO!
Why not? Well, let's begin by stating that the problem is not
with the hit generation company. They are doing exactly what
they promise to do-->bring traffic to your site.
The problem is you, or rather with your site. It is not doing
what it is suppose to do! There are two potential problems. Your
site may not be keeping the visitors long enough for them to
place an order. Or your site is not offering your visitors a
reason to BOOKMARK and return to your site.
This article is written with the following assumption: The Only
Visitor That Counts Is A Repeat Visitor!
An old advertising proverb declares: "Six times and they're
sold!" Here's the theory: "To make a sale you need to get your
marketing presentation in front of a prospect at least six
So here's the question: How can you create a site that will
motivate people to keep coming back and become a REPEAT VISITOR?
That is more simple than it sounds! Here's the answer in a
nutshell: Offer people a reason to come back and they will!
So what do people want? Here is a brief list of things that
PEOPLE WANT in life. If your site includes fresh and interactive
content that addresses these WANTS, then they will keep coming
back to your site.
People want to know how to make money. People want to find ways
to win money. People want to learn how to save money. People
want to lose weight. People want to look better. People want to
feel better. People want to have a better sex life. People want
to have a happier home life. People want to have more knowledge.
People want to help others. People want to experience personal
success in life. People want to develop friendships.
You get the point, don't you?
So--how do you begin to address these WANTS on your site in
order to attract REPEAT VISITORS. Here are three ideas:
ADD A DISCUSSION BOARD
A discussion board can be a tremendous draw for repeat visitors.
They can provide your visitors with an opportunity to make
comments, offer advice, and/or ask questions. The benefits are
numerous. A sense of community will develop around your site.
Friendships will form. People will learn from one another. They
will discover ways to help others.
All this will add up to ongoing repeat visitors-->which will
greatly increase your business success.
People want to get more money and more stuff. Greed may or may
not be good, depending on how you define it. One thing you can't
deny is that it is a real motivation.
So find a way to feed that motivation in a postive manner. Host
a contest on your site. There are several different businesses
that you can join that will permit you to host THEIR sweepstakes
contest. People will keep coming back to your site for a chance
to win-->and their return visits make it more likely that you
will win their business.
A recent survey from a major search engine asked how people used
the Internet. The overwhelming response was that people used it
for research--to get more information about a topic of interest.
Now asked yourselves two questions!
-->What is the niche of your web site? -->How can you educate
people about that subject?
For example, one of my sites (http://ezinesuccess.com), is
clearly focused on ezine editing and promotion. The site markets
several products that will aid the typical ezine editor.
In order to educate people to start or publish a better ezine, I
have included a brief tutorial, an article library, advertising
options, free on subject ebooks, ezine recommendations,
autoresponder reports, and much more. The site is changing
constantly to keep people wanting to come back for more.
Isn't this more useful than hundreds of banners, buttons, and
Please remember that the key to you success is not to get them
to come to you site--but to come back. If they don't come back
you won't make the sale!
