As what I’ve promised in the first part of this article series, I’ll talk more about internet marketing tools that you can use to generate more traffic to your website. As you know, this is the key to secure more leads, sales, and profit.

Article marketing. When talking about very effective traffic-generating tools, you can expect that article marketing will always come up in the discussion. This is because it’s proven to attract attention in the online arena. This is the process of writing and distributing short, keyword-rich articles to directories, blogs, and ezines. The goal here is build links for one’s website, to establish expertise in one’s niche, to create product awareness, to secure stronger online presence, and to pull up the site’s page ranking. These can be achieved if you write and distribute hundreds of high quality articles and if you make use of compelling resource box.

Forum posting. Forums are the best places to visit when you want to get in touch with your potential buyers. Identify those that are related to your chosen niche and visit them on a daily basis. Then, build an ongoing communication with your potential buyers. Join their discussion by giving them expert advice and by sharing with them a slice of your expertise. Most forums will allow you to use signature at the end of your posts where you can include the link of your website. Obviously, more posts will lead to more inbound links.

Social media marketing. One of the reasons why millions of people worldwide are using the internet these days is because of social networking sites like FaceBook and Twitter. This is the reason why I suggest that you use these sites to your advantage. Through this, you’ll easily be able to connect to wider market with just few clicks on your mouse. You can announce the launching of your new products for example by announcing it on Twitter.

Blogging. Right now, when the online competition is cutthroat, you will need to use every tool that can help you advance in this endeavor. Aside from your business website, I would also recommend that you build your own blog. In here, you can talk about your products, issues related to your niche, and you can talk about yourself and your business. This is one good way in building huge following in the online arena.

Ebook distribution. Years of doing internet marketing have taught me one thing; you can easily get people to pay attention to what you’re saying if you give them something for free. So, make time to create short but very informative ebooks. Then, offer them as freebies to entice more people to sign up to your list. You can also use these as your ultimate viral marketing tools. Just instruct your recipients to forward your ebook to all the people they know.
