We all know that traffic is the key to making money online. The
problem is that most people never figure out the traffic puzzle.
They either give up before they start getting a lot of traffic, or
they go for keywords in Google that are too competitive. There are
lots of other ways to get traffic to a website besides SEO work.
You can get more traffic to your site through various viral
The number one way to get your traffic to go viral on your website
is to hold a contest. Give away something that people want, and
get people to sign up with their email address! This is the kind
of content that can go viral on the internet.
You could make a video where you talk about your contest where you
give away something for free! This is where I would start if you
are trying to grow the popularity of your site. Make a simple video
using a free service like Animoto if you are on a tight budget, and
announce your contest and giveaway. Make the video short and to
the point, and give your viewers a website where they can go to
sign up for the free gift.
This could easily result in thousands of signups. When you get
these thousands of signups, you will have an email list!
Funny videos have a way of going viral too. Just like anything
else, you will have to promote your video all over the place if you
want it to go viral. There are 24 hours of video uploaded on
YouTube every minute, so the days of making any funny video go
viral fast are over.
The second way to promote your contest so it goes viral is through
Facebook. Everyone uses Facebook these days, so Facebook is the
second place you want to promote your contest. Use a Facebook Page
to promote your website, and then promote the contest on your
Facebook page. The goal of this exercise is to get people to like
your page and to sign up for the free trial with their email
address. Facebook tends to go viral fast if you have a nice offer
that people want to win! Take advantage of this strategy.
Promote your contest through Twitter too. Many people disregard
Twitter as a source for promotion, but Twitter is perfect for this
type of viral marketing. Set yourself up to get aligned with other
people who will re-tweet your content information on their twitter
Buy solo email ads that will help promote your contest too. People
love free stuff, so you will get people to sign up for your contest
if you email lots of people about your contest.
If you are serious about getting your content to go viral, you have
to be willing to promote your contest everywhere. Do not disregard
any opportunities to market your product. The truth is that it can
take a lot of time to get your website to go viral. You have to be
dedicated to your project if you feel you have content that can
truly go viral.
