Generate Targeted Traffic Using Entrecard

By · November 24, 2008 · Filed in Traffic Generation · 1 Comment »

I’ve been having a lot of fun with Entrecard lately. Entrecard is a blogging network that allows you to advertise your blog on different high traffic blogs. The great thing is that you “drop” or visit other blogs and earn credits to advertise your blog. You also earn credits when others drop on your blog and when you advertise others on your blog.

This can be extremely beneficial if you target your drops to your specified niche. You can view the most popular blogs, click on the drop button to show them that you visited their site and so far all of them have returned back to my blog. This can increase your chances of your blog being showcased on an already high traffic site.

You want to build up credit in order to advertise on the blogs that have the most traffic. I enjoy dropping on other blogs because it gives me ideas for my blog. I’ve seen some incredible blogs from great design to great content. Here is my other blog that shows the Entrecard widget Fat Loss Blog

The only downside is that you can’t use Entrecard with your free WordPress.com blog.  These blogs don’t support javascript which Entrecard requires to add the widget. I’ve actually worked around this problem with my self-hosted wordpress blog by linking this blog to that site. I have had a TON of people visit this site from my other blog.

Graham Langdon is the founder and CEO of Entrecard. He launched Entrecard in November, 2007. Since its launch, Entrecard has grown to serve millions of free clicks to its members every month. There is an easy to follow Entrecard ebook on their site to get you started right away with some great beginner to advanced traffic generation strategies. Have fun blog hopping!

Twitter Viral Marketing Strategies

Twitter, twitter, twitter…Everyone is asking What is Twitter? How do you use it? I’ve heard people say that they signed up but didn’t catch on to it. Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users’ updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length.

Many people use this for fun to meet new people, some use Twitter to get traffic to their blogs or websites and some use Twitter to gain more knowledge from well known experts in a certain field. Here are some Twitter tips that I implement that brings me new followers every day.

1. Post Some Interesting Things Going on In Your Life – people are interested in learning more about you as a person.

2. Target your market by searching for your niche area – find and follow people of interest that you can learn and grow from in your niche market.

3. Join Professional Social Networking Sites – find the Twitter groups and write a blurb about yourself.  People that are interested will follow you.

4. Post a question with a poll – of course your poll will be on your website or blog but let everyone know that you have a poll.

5. Ask for help or direction in an area where you need clarification – people love to share their experience and knowledge to help others.

6. Don’t just post tweets, get involved with conversations – it may seem awkward at times but join in and respond to tweets. The more involved you are, the more friends that you will establish.

7. Review your followers and decide if you want to follow them back – some people may unfollow you if they feel you aren’t responsive or engaged. You don’t have to follow everyone but it’s a great idea to follow the ones that you feel would be a great asset to your knowledge base.

8. Sign up for TweetLater to help with automation – you can set it up where an instant thank you message is sent to all of your followers.

9. Post your Twitter link in your social networking sites like Myspace, Facebook (has an application that automatically shows all of your Twitter updates), LinkedIn, etc.

10. Search for a big name/successful person in your niche market – go to their followers list and start following them. Most of these people can be potential customers that are looking for more information. You can follow a max of 2000 people until 2000 people are following YOU. Then you can get past the 2000 mark.

11. HAVE FUN WITH TWITTER!

5 Ways ExitExplosion.com Will Multiply Your Web Traffic

5 Ways ExitExplosion.com Will Multiply Your Web Traffic

As I’m sure you know already, ExitExplosion.com is taking the
Internet Marketing world by storm.

They’ve taken the tried-and-true concept of a traffic exchange,
and combined it with the “exit grabber” — one of this year’s
most powerful marketing innovations.

Here’s 5 simple ways that ExitExplosion.com will multiply
the traffic coming to your website..

1. ExitExplosion.com takes the traffic that is ALREADY
leaving your website, and turns that traffic into
“credits,” which then earns you more traffic. And then,
yes, that new traffic will eventually leave your site,
and earn you credits again! I know it sounds crazy, but
this really does keep looping around over and over…

You have to see it to believe it…

2. You earn credits on everyone you bring into the system,
10 levels deep. So, this “looping” process described
above will be happening to everyone you refer into the
system, and everyone they refer, and then everyone THEY
refer, etc. for 10 levels. Can you handle that?

3. ExitExplosion is ridiculously easy to set up on your
web site (it really does take only a few seconds), so
there’s no worry that you or anyone you refer will be
able to set it up. This just makes the speed at which
your traffic grows virally that much faster.

4. Their system is based on the revolutionary “ExitGrabber”
technology, which is completely unblockable. So, 100%
of your credits will be put to good use. This has
got to be one of the most reliable ad-delivery methods
to date.

5. It cannot negatively impact your site or your marketing
at all, since it only shows up once it’s already
calculated that people are LEAVING your site. Once
someone’s already decided to leave, why not at least
turn that into something beneficial?

I could go on and on, but there’s only so much you can learn by
me talking. I mean, I could sit here and tell you about how
to play tennis all day, but you’d only really ever learn if you
picked up a racket and gave it a shot, right?

And in this case, since their site is free to use and only takes
a matter of seconds to set up, it’s best if you just try it out
for yourself.

You can take it off just as easily if it doesn’t work for you.

But I doubt that’d happen :)

Explode your website traffic now!
