Do you have a Traffic Problem on your website?
If you are like most financial professionals (including me back in the early days of starting my first site AnnuityThinkTank.com), then I am guessing that you need a whole lot more online traffic than you currently have. And there are probably some of you reading this that have almost no traffic at all to your website. But regardless of the case, I am going to show you an effective way to legally divert traffic from big named websites with no out of pocket expenses.
Do you know how to legally divert traffic from big named websites?
Have you heard the old saying, “Don’t dig an entire new well if it is more efficient and effective to divert nearby streams and rivers? Well this theory applies more than ever on the Internet. There is certainly enough traffic on the Internet, the problem is that there just isn’t enough of it coming to your site!
The great news is that the secret behind “How to legally divert traffic from big named websites” isn’t as conniving as it may sound. In fact, you will be adding value to these other sites, and in return, you will capture some of their traffic.
What do I mean? Here is an example:
- Let’s say that you happen to be an expert on life insurance. In particular, indexed universal life insurance
- You come across on article on a big site such as Forbes that is all about the pros and cons of indexed universal life insurance
- You notice that readers are starting to comment and ask questions in the comment section of the article
- Instead of just reading the comments and moving on with our day (like most of us do), this is your chance to help people out, to add value to the conversation, and to showcase your expertise
- Here is what you do: You would simply add your own comments, reply to someone else’s question, or even give them (and the author) something else to think about on the subject that might have been left off of the original article or blog
- The MOST IMPORTANT piece is that you MUST ADD VALUE to the conversation. This is not a place to sell yourself, your company, or your products. In fact, if you do, you will most likely get booted off or banned for life
- At the end of your value-added comment, simply put a link back to your site that goes to a specific page on the subject where they can learn more. An even better idea would be to create a video, checklist, blog, or resource that answers some of the questions or concerns people are voicing in the comment section
- Once they click your link and land on your page, you have officially learned how to “legally divert traffic from big named websites”
The one bad thing about organic content marketing is that it can take a long time to show up on page 1 of Google/YouTube for your targeted keywords. However, there are some proven ways to speed up the process of getting eye-balls on your content.
One of the easiest ways is to post “Value-added” comments on articles that are found on highly-trafficked websites, in discussion boards, and inside of active forums (see example above for step-by-step instructions).
But always remember the golden rule: You Must Add Value
