Making money online is almost impossible if you have little or no traffic coming to your website. So, how do you get more traffic? That's the question that everybody wants to know.

With my years of experience giving away, something free is the first thing every Internet marketing guru tells you to do. However, the only way this will work is if people see your offer and the only way people are going to see your offer is if you have traffic.

There are many different ways to get more website traffic. One way to get more website traffic is Facebook. but before you go posting there are something’s you should keep in mind. You have to stay focus on your goal and your goal is to get people to opt-in to your list. The way I am going to show you how to get people to opt-in, will at the same time get you free traffic to your website. The first thing you are going to have to get is hosting and a domain.

For your domain, I would recommend GoDaddy.com. For hosting, I recommend Hostgator.com. Once you have your domain and hosting. Go to your cPanel and under “Software/Service”, click on QuickInstall.

Click OuickInstallThen look to your left and under blog software, click on WordPress.  Click Blog Software

Some information about WordPress will come up, just click continue. Click Continue Select your domain from the drop down menu and fill in the rest of the information. Install WordPressThe reason why I am telling you, you need to install WordPress on your domain is because of your squeeze page and tracking program. They are both WordPress plug-ins.

The first plug-in is called Hybrid-connect. With Hybrid-connect, you can create squeeze pages (also known as a landing page), light boxes, slide-ins. Hybrid-connect allows you to create the kind of squeeze pages with picture backgrounds, and if you really want to make your squeeze page look impressive, you should use a gif

Light boxes and slide-ins are similar to a squeeze page but a light box, pops ups and will not go away until you exit out or do the requested action. A slide–in does just that, it slides in. You can have it slide in from the top, bottom, right, or left. Depending on how you set your settings, you can also dictate the position of where you want it to stop.

There are other features, like automatically displaying an opt-in form at the bottom each blog post and page. They also give you the WordPress short code. You can display your opt-in form anywhere on your website!

The most user-friendly feature is how you get your squeeze page to display. All you have to do is enable the squeeze page to show on a page you created and when you or somebody, goes to that page the squeeze page will automatically show up.

Another great feature is hint, the word hybrid. Hybrid-connect will automatically detect if a person is logged into Facebook and display a sign up Facebook button.

If the person is logged into WordPress, it will automatically show a one click WordPress sign up button

opt-in3

If the person is not logged into Facebook or WordPress, it will show the standard name and email fields.

The only way to get more website traffic is to spread the word. But once they get there, then what? How do you keep them coming back for more?

Many people just create daily content and hope somebody searches for it. This is just not enough. You have to promote it. Building a list is the best way to do this. Your list is traffic that you own. What I mean by owning it is, you do not have to rent, pay, or follow the policies and posting rules of some other company. In addition, the people that opt-in, opt-in because they like you, they like what you are saying and they want to know more to the point that they are willing to give you their email address!

After you built a list and for now on, every time you create a post all you have to do is send your list an email and you will have instant traffic! However, just because you send an email to your list, does not guarantee that everybody on list will open and click on your link. If they do not know who you are or if your content is garbage, they will never open your emails and they might even unsubscribe.

Go to hybrid-connect.com. You can choose from a single site, multi-site, or a professional license.

Now that you have your squeeze page set up, you are finally ready to start driving traffic to it. According to alexa.com Facebook is the second most popular website on the internet. The number one most popular website is Google. You can understand that since the first thing people do online is search for something. They also own YouTube, which is number three.

The reason why I am telling you this is that every time I mention the word Facebook, most people frown up their faces. I can somewhat relate because when Facebook first came out, it took me years to create an account. The only reason is at that time Facebook and MySpace were perceived to be for young kids playing games and trying to get a date. When Facebook started to grow and more marketers started doing training on it, I saw the opportunity and joined.

If you are anything like me you need to realize that just because you are not on Facebook, does not mean your customers or prospects are not. It will be a lot easier to convince a prospect or customer, to join your team or buy something from you if you have a present on the number two most visited website on the internet!

I am not saying spend eight hours a day on there but at the very least, you should create a profile. Now of days, almost everybody goes online first before deciding to buy something. If you or your company does not have a presence, then most likely those people are going to think you are a fraud.

If you have not already created an account, create one and after that create a page. If you do not have a company, just use your name. I have several Facebook pages but my main page is Rodney Brooks Jr. Depending on when you are reading this, currently, I don’t have too much on there but starting today, this is the one that I am going to be working on the most.

Two months ago, I created a new website for a page that I did just for fun.  On my fanpage, I got over 6,000 likes and on my website; I got close to 20,000 visitors in the month of June! All I did was post pictures and videos at the peak times most of my fans were online. The only other thing I did besides posting at peak times was, posting a link to my website in the description.

Below is proof! Look at the date I took this screen shot. As you can see this site has only been up for three months. Along with the 25,787 views, I got 419 WordPress users and 161 subscribers to my list!

subscribers

The only way I would have known this data, was through tracking. WordPress comes with its own built-in tracking. The first three-pictures are an example the jetpack plug-in, which is free. All you have to do is activate it.

jetpack

The last picture is of my getresponse autoresponder. If you want to read a little more about autoresponders, go to my post titled, ‘What is an email autoresponder”. I explain more about autoresponders and mention several others too but for this post, I recommend getresponse. In the future, I will tell you why.

The only drawback with WordPress's jetpack tracking plug-in is, you cannot track actions or sales. For this, I recommend adtrackgold.

Adtrackgold is a ad-tracking software program. It allows you to track how many people clicked your link, how many people took action (signed up), how many people brought (sales) your product, split test, and more! The picture below is how the stats look. These two campaigns were for clicks and actions only.

The first campaign was for the page I mention earlier. The second campaign was for a page that I am currently one of the content managers. My goal was to see if anybody was clicking on my link and opting-in afterward. As you can see my first campaign got 1,489 raw clicks, 942 unique clicks and 156 actions (sign ups). My click thru rate was not that great but I got 156 free subscribers! The second campaign I got 20 free subscribers from the page that I am a content manager!

Conclusion

Go to Adtrackgold.com and hybrid-connect.com. download, and install the two plug-ins. After you have installed and activated them, write a blog post and if you have a list, send them an email letting them know you just created a new post. The next step is choosing a picture to post on Facebook. Once you have chosen one, make sure you post a link to the blog post you just created in the description..

After that, choose another picture or video that you think is funny, cute or inspirational. post this one about two hours after your blog post. Place a link in the description to the squeeze page that you created in this one.

What is a squeeze pageWhat's a squeeze page? The best way to explain what is a squeeze page is, a page with an opt-in form that collects a person’s information that they submit. It is also called a landing page. Some squeeze pages only ask for your email address. Others might ask for your name, address, email address, how did you find them, your telephone number and who knows what else.

 

p style=”text-align: left;”>Squeeze pages vary in size and design. Some can be the full width of your computer screen, some might pop up 30 seconds after you land and some might even pop up when you exit.  The next time you go to a website that promises you something but you have to submit your email address first, that’s a squeeze page. Don’t automatically think it spam or it's a scam. It marketing 101!

A squeeze page is the only way you will be able to build a massive email list and as the saying goes “the money is in the list”. If you don’t know what that means, I would suggest reading my blog post “What is an autoresponder”. If you want to make money like some of the top online marketers, a squeeze page is how it’s done!

But there is more to the story then just creating a squeeze. You have to offer something that would make a person want to submit their email address in exchange for what you are offering. All the top gurus teach giving away something free. This can be e-books, software, video, or anything you can think of. The goal is just to collect email address.
