Monetize Your Site With Web Site Advertising

A simply way to monetize your blog or sales site without making your web site advertising look too cluttered or obvious, is to use an effective exit strategy.

Simply design an exit page with your sales pitch nicely laid out for the prospective customer. Bingo, you’re giving your traffic a whole new experience where you can bring in more subscribers or more product sales for your business.

Did you know that ninety five percent of visitors to your site will leave within the first 3 – 5 seconds of arrival?

Using this strategy, you can…

  • Increase Your Sales By Up To 40-percent!
  • Increase Your Traffic By Up To 1200 Visitors!
  • Increase Your Opt-Ins By Up To 800-percent!

… and all this from effectively managing your EXISTING traffic.

You see, the problem that most sites have is that 95 out of every hundred visitors to your site, are leaving WITHOUT taking any action. This applies equally to;

  • Sales Pages
  • E-Commerce Sites
  • Landing Pages
  • Squeeze Pages
  • Content Sites

All the valuable leaving traffic is being wasted, let go without seeing your pitch.The exit page opens up a whole new channel of communication with which you can grab their attention, and potentially convert into a lead or product sale.

How does it work you may ask?

All you do is to insert some web script, into your web site code, as supplied by ‘Exit Splash’ which re-directs your leaving visitor to your nicely designed subscription or sales page.

Initially the visitor sees a dialogue box with a message that, gives the visitor a reason to stay on your site. When the visitor clicks to stay on, they are directed to your exit page.

This is a simple idea effectively developed by ‘Exit Splash’ that enables you to capture the attention of the leaving visitor, effectively forcing them to take action, usually to stay.

There is no programming to do, no responses to write, and no database. All you have to do is copy and paste the ‘Exit Splash’ code, then upload it into your site code, write your dialogue box killer message, and you’re done. Takes 10 minutes of what you could describe as ‘smart work’ and you have a whole new channel of communication opened up.

Additionally there are 3 features to help increase the click-through-rate to keep more visitors on your site, thus directing them onto the exit page.

  • Impact Alert Message, instructions of how to stay on site
  • Impact Image, visual representation of where to click to stay on site
  • Impact Audio, audio message telling the visitor how to stay on site

These messages could offer a free gift, a one time offer, a discount, or anything beneficial for the visitor to stay. Your exit page can be a sales page, squeeze page, or affiliate page. There are many ways to implement your exit web site advertising strategy.

You can use the ‘Exit Splash’ web script code on unlimited sites. Multiple sites can have individual exit pages, or they all could re-direct to the one exit page.

This is the SMART way to increase your web site advertising without increasing the advertisements on your main pages. Also the SMART way to effectively capture your leaving visitors before they leave for good!

Drowning In The Meandering Mind of A Web Site Advertiser

It is a well known phenomena that even after reading the most well thought out, fine tuned website, the average reader (and soon to be potential buyer) still doesn’t assimilate what they have read.

This is not to imply that a person is not intelligent. Far from it. But something else takes over, something else gets in the way of total comprehension.

Which is…

The wish to believe (the hype). The deep down desire that someone else will be responsible for the income you would love to see rolling in. The promise that it will be “easy” and you will not have to do a thing. The appeal to what most of us have in common, to whatever degree, a basic sense of right and privilege, with a twist of laziness.

For years now, the concept of overnight wealth has invaded the minds and hearts of thousands of yearning individuals. The idea of financial freedom, just a heartbeat away, drives even sane people totally crazy. Assumptions we would never make in the “real world” fly out the window of common sense online. The mantra instead becomes, “Will this one be the one?” or “Will this one set me free?” along with “Will it happen, this time, in that overnight flashy way that clever sales page has lead me to believe it will?” You convince yourself that the “proof” looks real, he wouldn’t fudge about a thing like that… would he?

Well the answer is painfully clear, and with conversion rates high on even some of the most doubtful online programs, that answer appears to be “gotcha!”

Before we continue, come take a trip with me for a moment back a little over half a decade, and we’ll take a closer look at reality. The “mentor” you’ve followed so diligently the past few months, the guy (or gal) making hundreds of thousands online seemingly overnight… it’s an illusion.

The average online hundred-thousand-aire or millionaire took years to create. They, like so many of us, spent the first few years struggling online. Read years. Not days, weeks, or a couple months. Years.

What set them apart was their willingness, drive, and desire to succeed – at all cost. They saw their dream and they stuck with it. Then, when success did finally hit, they bottled that “in the moment” nirvana and proceeded to lead the rest down the road of “it can happen overnight!”

Was Google born within hours of opening its doors? Amazon? Paypal? Duh, no… In fact, if you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that Paypal used to offer a $5 incentive to create your account. And they let their “affiliates” (new customers) spread the word and make $5, too. This went on for quite some time, because they knew (just like you know, too, in your heart of hearts), that marketing and advertising and spreading the word takes time, patience, persistence, and money.

So getting back to the original premise… why is it that perfectly normal people will infer and convince themselves of promises never made on that (well read?) website? Each properly put together website should have that handy legal disclaimer for all to read. You know the one, it states “there are no guarantees of making money with this program.” It’s there for a reason.

The average Joe or Jane hasn’t a clue what is really involved in launching a business be it their own or an affiliate commitment. It would be fair to hazard a guess that 99.9% who attempt fail.

It’s not that they couldn’t be successful, the problem lies in the fact that they are impatient. A week online and nothing… two, two months, six months, a year. Impatience (and a certain disregard for their wallets) turns even the most reasonable person irrational.

Concentration, goal setting, planning and implementation.

The idea of never having to lift a finger to ensure one’s success online or offline is ludicrous. You know it and so do I. The fine print, whether truly there or not, reads “you must help yourself.” The program’s web page that you joined did it’s job, it got you, right? Then, after signing up, did it magically change to read, “Okay now I will make you rich?” No it did not. It’s purpose is to grab the next guys attention, and the one after that, and after that, and so on. It is doing its job. Ergo, the person or people behind that webpage are doing theirs. They set out to open a program to draw others in, and it is doing exactly what they set out to get done. And so must you.

Do your own thing!

The crash course in marketing and advertising begins now, before you commit to the next guys program. Before you jump in with both eyes wide shut, why not consider doing your own thing first?

What’s wrong with taking the next three months, six months, a year to get your own site together? Teach yourself something useful – how to put together a website! There’s a valuable skill! Now you are in control of your life.

Ask yourself what are you interested in? What can you personally bring to the web? Research what other people are looking for and develop a real plan for success online.

Take the next weeks or even months and educate yourself about search engine strategies, and the right combination of virtual street smart advertising. They do work!

Time and money. Doesn’t it make sense to pour your time and energy into your own piece of virtual real estate? It’s going to take months or even years to establish, why not spend that time and energy, and money doing your own thing? Then you have something solid to hold on to, to change and update, and expand and grow, and potentially make money with.

Take the time to do it right. Build a list of solid followers, and they will do their job… follow you. Bring integrity, knowledge, and a willingness to help others to the table. People want that, people need it.

People buy from people they feel they know. Not strangers. Setting up the right web site, and following a solid advertising and marketing approach makes a difference to your success (or failure) online.

Whether you are your own domain owner or affiliate marketer, you must market and advertise. Without these, how in the world will anyone ever find your website among millions? Just because its “live” doesn’t mean its evident to the rest of the world. You must market, you must advertise. Plain and simple.

So going with the flow of do we really read, here’s something to ponder while you scope out the best web site advertising spots:

“[Marketing is]… the business activity of presenting products or services to potential customers in such a way as to make them eager to buy. Marketing includes such matters as the pricing and packaging of the product and the creation of demand by advertising and sales campaigns.” – the MSN Encarta Dictionary

Did you read that carefully?

You, or the affiliate program owner, are responsible for packaging and pricing. The web advertising or marketing is merely the process by which you strive to inform others that you exist. Marketing informs, advertising informs. Again, plain and simple.

So where do those “sales” come in?

Keep in mind that unless you have a call center hooked to your website, or to that affiliate program you join, online you have one “salesperson,” and one only, at your disposal. Your web site.
Your web pages, just like the ones that started out this article, are your sales force. They, and they alone, have the power to make or break your sale. Quality visitors – people arriving ready and interested in finding your web site (assuming it can convert the sale) – should be your targeted audience.

Much heartache can be avoided online if one approaches opening a business online like a real brick and mortar store. It takes time to work up the clientele, and even many brick and mortars close due to lack of interest or intense competition.

Take your time joining that (next) program. Consider first the potential of starting your own informational website. Invest your money and time into it, build something to call your own online.

Do not be desperate. Desperate people, more often than not, make poor choices. If you are currently desperate for money, get a job or maneuver an advantageous career change for yourself.

Come (back) to the ‘net when you are ready and able to be here.

Time, read, time, money, read, research, plan, time, implement, time, research, money, adjust, time, money, time, time.

Those aren’t keywords for this article, they are your mantra.

Free Advertising For Web Sites

All websites need traffic and there are many ways to get traffic. Most of them cost money, lots of it. Pay per click programs are guaranteed to bring you instant traffic. In fact, as much as you can afford. Once you money runs out, so does the traffic. Some people swear by this method, but they are usually making a fortune from it, or more precisely, they are making a fortune from selling you theories on how to profit from pay per click. If most of these so called gurus were making the fortunes they claim, they wouldn’t be peddling $20 ebooks on how to create competitors in their own market and kill their own, supposed, large pay per click incomes.

So what are your alternatives for web site advertising? Well, several to be honest. First of all, there is of course article marketing. A well discussed topic and an invaluable tool of any one serious about making money online. Secondly, community forums. No matter what topic you are involved in, there is almost certainly a forum community built up around it. If there is not, then build your own. You can join the community and add valuable information to discussions and answer questions all while including your all important back link to your site in your signature. If you join a community make sure you contribute quality information to the community. Do not spam. Its pointless, unfair to the community, and in the long run will discredit you and your product in very short time.

Thirdly, advertising sites. There are advertising sites out there that welcome you to post advertisements for your product, business, web site, etc. These sites usually allow you to write a sales copy, add pictures, and most importantly, a link to your site or product. Amazingly, this can be done for free, yes free advertising.

Free web site advertising on a site such as these will bring you traffic in a steady stream direct from the advertising site, and in some cases, from organic search engine results. Once you experience the traffic from sites like this, you will no longer put pay per click as your first choice of traffic sources. This is not to say you should not use pay per click, it is phenomenal as far as traffic, but paid traffic should not be your first choice over free traffic.
