Here’s A Free Traffic Generating Article For You To Give To Your Readers

Posted on March 7, 2007. Filed under: Free Articles For You To Use, Traffic Generator |

Are you currently using co – registration leads to build your opt in list?

If you are…then I’ve got a free gift for you in the form of an article that you can use to generate traffic for your site.

Here are a few suggestion as to how to get the biggest bang out this article.

I would suggest that you place it on your blog or as a freebie to your subscriber list.

If you do decide to use it as a freebie to your subscriber list..then try writing a teaser in the message that comes before it.

I’ve found the readership of my articles goes up dramatically when it’s given a good teaser.

For ex.

“In your next lesson/tip/message you’re going to learn about 7 useful tips for making co registration advertising work for you. Just following anyone of these tips could lead to bigger and better paydays. ”

Did you notice something in that example?

Notice how I tied the tease in with the actual title of the article itself.

Why did I do that?

For congruency…

Huh..what’s that?

I’ll explain that some other time…for now just know that is the reason I did it that way.

“So Keir you’re giving away one of your articles for me to use as a traffic what’s the catch?”

There is no catch.

The only thing I ask is that you leave the article content as is. I did the research to make the article worth reading so why tinker with it. 🙂

“But if I give away your article with your resource box still attached how can that benefit me?”

There’s a simple way for you to get around that issue and still bring in sales to whatever program you’re selling.

All you have to do is write an intro that goes above the article itself. It doesn’t have to be long, just express your opinion or create another teaser or whatever. Then you can sign off with whatever program you are promoting at the that time.

The point is that you don’t want to make the article the only thing your reader will see. This of course works best when you put it in an autoresponder. But use your imagination. I’m sure you can come up with some creative ways to use this article and still bring in benefits to yourself as well.

So without further ado…here is the article.

7 Tips for making co registration advertising work for you

By Keir Smith

How do you get your newsletter to stand out on a co registration page filled with other newsletter offers?

Well, that’s the question I will answer for you here today.

So without further ado, here you go.

1. Why should they sign up for your newsletter?

You need to answer this question for your potential subscriber. They need a reason to sign up for your newsletter and not the other 5 or 6 offers that might be on the same page.

A good idea here is to look for ways to make your newsletter stand out. Forget about using things like capital letters highlighting etc.

Here you need to make your words count.

2. Copy counts.

Keep your web copy short. Think of your co registration ad as a mini billboard. Use short words, short sentences. Short one syllable words work best.

Keep the 4 line rule in mind as well. That is, try to make your copy under 4 lines.

3. Freebie

Are you offering a free subscription?

Then let them no that.

Please do not assume that your potential subscriber already knows that.

4. Dangle a carrot.

Give them a bonus for signing up to your newsletter.

It can be a free report, a free white paper, a free case study or whatever…

However remember to assign a dollar value to your bonus. It will be perceived much better in the mind of your potential subscriber if they know that they would have had to pay extra for it but now they don’t.

5. Use proven direct response copy rules

Forget about using words like we and our and instead plug in words like you and your.

Another tip is to get rid of the passive voice and instead use the active voice.

You can make sure that you’re using the active voice by simply placing active verbs in with your words. Words like get, subscribe, join..etc.

6. Use Questions to grab attention,

Start your co registration ad off with a question.

Ex. “Want to know how to build your affiliate subscriber list really fast”

Then follow it up with 2-3 lines of copy.

7. Test your ad copy

Make sure you test your copy. One headline will sometimes work a hundred times better than another one. But the only way for you to find out is by testing it.

I hope that you found these tips to be helpful.
