Introduction Hi, My name is Marius. I am the owner ofWebsiteMarketingTricks.com and I am working with internetwebsite marketing. I am 24 years old student from Lithuania -not such a big, but, trust me, amazing and very beautifulcountry.

I am just a simple man, who uses natural techniques asmost of other website owners to gain traffic and to market mywebsites. Actually, when you are promoting your website it is notthe most important thing where are you getting traffic from. Themost important thing is HOW you are doing this and what tacticsyou are using to increase your website traffic. That’s what I wantto talk about in this eBook.I hope you’ll enjoy reading.Best RegardsMarius Kiniulishttp://www.WebsiteMarketingTricks.com
Write Strong and Original Content! I can talk a lot about the tactics on how to gettargeted traffic to your website. But it will be onlycrappy visitors if they won’t found anything usefuland interesting on your website. So you have toget their attention with strong content from thevery first moment. The main reason, why most bloggers fails withblogging is that they are not paying muchattention to their visitors. You are not writing for bots and robots, soyour article has to be clear and easy tounderstand. If you want to be really successful, you have tobe original and to give your readers something,what they can’t get on other websites. That’s whythey are coming to your blog. They expectsomething interesting and unrevealed from you.And when they are getting this – they begin torespect you. Let’s look to some other popular bloggers, whoare talking about internet marketing and onlinebusiness: 1. Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income blog 2. Glen Allsop and his ViperChill blog
This way traffic will come to your website byitself. Quality vs Quantity There are lots of bloggers, who alwaysemphasize that you have to post at least few postsa week or even more. That’s OK, I have nothingagainst it. But only as long as you can writevaluable content with doing this. Actually, I am not going to write only becauseI have to write. I write, when Ihave something meaningful to say. I’d rather writeone article with valuable information in it andwhich, I think, is worth of your attention thanplenty of crappy small posts. In my opinion quality is much more importantthan quantity. It is good if you have oftensomething meaningful to say, but if you haven’t,it’s better don’t write anything at all, till you foundsomething interesting valuable to share with yourreaders. You should orientate to the information, whichpeople would love to hear and talk about. Glen Allsop already proved onhis ViperChill blog that quantity doesn’t matter at
But you won’t confuse the visitor, which searchengines or other source sends to your website.These visitors, who are coming to your site are areal humans and if they won’t find anything usefulor what he was searching for, they’ll just close thewindow and never come back to your websiteagain! Once again: your main point should be to getREADERS – not visitors!!!
The Importance of Communication I strongly believe, that you have seen manysuch websites, where is no life. This is becausethose blog owners are not trying to create acommunity around their blogs… Why is it so important to communicate withyour readers? When you make connections with youraudience, then they are more likely to share, whatyou are writing about, what means more repeattraffic and more referral traffic to your website… What you have to do to reach this? Try to include your readers into the conversation. Ask them a question and let them share their opinion. This is useful for both of you – your readers can feel their importance to you, and on the other side you can get really cool advises and ideas on what you are writing about. You should also answer to the comments on your blog, especially, some time after you post an article. Don’t be afraid to let them post on your Facebook fan page wall. This way your fan page will get a lot of activity and your fans are involved to discuss with each other.
The Importance of Your Headlines You should know the fact, your headline is oneof the most important elements in your blog post.When visitors are scrolling your website, firstthing, what they see is your post headlines. It could be that it will all depend only from theheadline whether the blog reader will read yourarticle or not. So, it should be as much informativeas it can. Your headline has to draw visitorsattention from the very first moment, when hesees it. And it has to say to him: “this article hassomething worth of your attention and you MUSTcheck it, if you want to find out something reallyimportant“. Have in mind, that your headline will appearnot only on your website! Your headline will bevisible in search engines (that means more or lesssearch engine traffic), in feed, on other websitesand forums. When others will be linking toyour article, then it is very likely they will be usingyour headline as anchor text. That’s why it is soimportant to get their attention from the very firstmoment! Here are some good headline examples, whichI found on various places:1. Headlines on Google:
As you can see, when Pat is linking to otherposts, he is taking article headlines as anchor text. This helps for a visitor to choose by itself, whicharticle he want to read and which one – not. Which headlines draws your attention herefirst? For example, what concerns me, Ihave immediately checked the article named Howto Get 1 Million Website Visitors in 2012 by Stevefrom SteveScottSite.com. And after reading thisarticle I have not only read his other blog posts,but subscribed to his email list as well. This way Ibecame his website loyal reader. I have also
appears bellow in search results. People oftendecides straight from the headline if this is whatthey are looking for or not. And with well written headline you can catchtheir attention even if this is not something, whatthey were looking for. So, is it clear now, why your headline is soimportant? Everything may depend only from theheadline, whether your article will be read or not. Here are some quick tips for your perfectheadline (with some examples): 1. Ask a question: (Example: Is Writing for Others More profitable than Doing this for Yourself?) 2. Use numbers: (Example: 21 Ways to Get Traffic to Your Website) 3. Use the power of words “How to”: (Example: How to Spend Less Time on the Computer) 4. Challenge someone believes: (Example: Why You Shouldn’t Listen to Your Boss) 5. Use superlatives: (Example: The Easiest Way to Get Cheap Flight Tickets)
Go And Get READERS! Ask yourself again now. What type of traffic doyou really need? Is it enough to get lot’s of uselessvisitors or is it better to get few real readers, whowill follow everything you are doing. When they feel respect for you, than they aremore likely to support you in your projects, sharewith you their own experience, or even buy aproduct from you. That’s the real POWER! Having a blog is not all only about writingarticles and sharing your experience - it’s all aboutcreating a community! If you create a strongcommunity than you will be the one everybodylikes and is talking about. So, orientate to your READERS!
