This special software offers the ability to
attract website visitors and build your own
mailing list - all automatically.
This type of promotion works particularly well for sites
with a specific "niche" theme. Example themes include pets,
music, clothing, food, electronics and many more.
This solution works by generating traffic through
your own Internet contest.
Marketing through contests is nothing new. In fact,
marketers have been doing it offline for over 30 years. Polls
show that every year over half the adult American
population enter contests and sweepstakes (contests in
which the winner is chosen at random).
Internet contests are also becoming increasingly common
these days, generally offering a much simpler and lower
cost solution than their offline counterparts.
One of the top contest directories currently lists around
6000 active contests,
showing how popular this form of promotion is
Despite this fact, the vast majority of small online
business owners have never considered running their own
It's actually very easy - and costs very
little - to run your own contest.
You just need a web page to announce the details of the
contest and a suitable small prize for the winner (preferably
related to the theme of your website). Common prizes include
books, music CDs, pet accessories, etc. (depending of
course on the theme of the site).
Once you've set up a contest, you can list it
on lots of contest directory sites, completely
free, generating a steady stream of people to
your website at zero cost.
Contests don't just draw people to your site though.
They also allow you to capture names and email
addresses through the contest entry form.
This gives you an easy way to build a
profitable mailing list as well as generating immediate
traffic to your website.
All this makes for a powerful solution for
promoting your site at minimal cost.
Of course running your own contest is a lot
easier if you have some sort of software to manage
the contest for you, allowing people to submit their entries
and automatically adding their details to your list.
That's where the second item in our Web Traffic Power Pack
