We all want more traffic to our sites…
Here are 10 phrases that will help you boost traffic and bring visitors back to your sites, time after time.
“Subscribe / Sign Up”
Tell your visitors to subscribe to your newsletter, and when they subscribe you'll capture their e-mail address. Each time they receive a copy of your newsletter containing snippets of articles recently posted, they will be prompted to visit your site. Watch your Analytics go nuts on those days!
Freebies are always a good incentive to encourage folks to sign up for your newsletters. Too, you may allow visitors to use some of your articles on their own web site. Just ask them to include your resource box at the end of the article. This is a free way to advertise your site all over the internet.
Make it easy for your visitors to bookmark your web site, and give them a good reason to do so. For example, promise fresh content daily or weekly.
“Like us on Facebook”
To expand your reach exponentially, your sidebar should incorporate links to all the major social media sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.
“Take our Survey”
Ask your visitors and newsletter subscribers to fill out your online survey or questionnaire. This brings people back to your site. Use the feedback on ways to improve your web site to increase traffic and visitor retention.
“Enter Our Contest”
Give your visitors a chance to enter an online contest or sweepstakes. People love to win stuff, and they will come back to your site again and again to see if you have new contest offerings.
“Join Our Forum”
Ask your visitors to participate on your online discussion board. By participating they will meet other people, and they will return to your web site on a regular basis to stay in contact with their new friends.
“Join Our Affiliate Program”
Allow your visitors to make money selling your products or services. This will increase your traffic (and revenues) when they link back to your web site.
