Joel Comm's Internet Marketing Tips
March 22, 2008
You've registered your domain...
You've created your site design...
You've added original content...
And now you wonder where the money is.
It's a common story, but it is one that is easily resolved with oneword.
You can easy-button your way through registration, design andcontent.
But there is NO easy button for traffic. It doesn't exist.
That doesn't mean you can't generate traffic!
In fact, there are a number of ways you can generate traffic toyour site.
Today's entry focuses on one method of traffic generation...
Take, for example, this new site all about fresh maine lobster.
Now I am not a fan of lobster, or any seafood for that matter.
But people who like lobster really like lobster!
What is FreshMaineLobster.com doing to get traffic?
Simple. They are giving away a $100 LobsterGram gift certificate!
There are two things I want you to take note of...
1) If you like lobster, you should definitely enter as there areonly a couple entries on the page as of this writing. Seems like agreat opportunity to have a chance at winning.
2) Pay attention to how the contest drives traffic to the site andthink about how you might be able to encourage visitors with somesort of contest. It's not difficult to do!
Your contest doesn't need to be complex. It just needs to offer alow barrier to entry and provide a prize of value. In this case,simply commenting or linking to the site can get you a $100Lobstergram gift certificate. Both criteria are met.
Take a look. The actual contest page is here...
Good luck. :-)
