|Tip 37: Create a Mini Course For Your Visitors!
Your goal, along with everyone else's, is to get people to comeback to
your site. Having a person visit for the first time is great, but if
they leave and never return, you don't get anything out of it.
Therefore, you need a way to bring them back and make them interested.
Well, you can do that with a mini course!
A mini course will allow you to "teach" your visitors something they
didn't know, or something they knew little about. Each "part" will
contain new information that will urge the readers to keep coming back
for more. The more accurate and interesting the information, the more
excited people are to get their hands on it.
For each part of the mini course, put something enticing at the bottom
to "force" them to check your website everyday. A sentence like "Part 3
Will Be Arriving Within a Few Days- Stay Tuned!" or something similar
should spark their interest. Although giving an exact day is nice, you
want them to visit your site and check around as often as possible. You
don't want them to just read the mini course, leave for 4 days, and
then come back to read the next one; do you?
You basically have two options when it comes to distributing your mini
course. You can either post it on your website or you can add it to an
auto-responder series. Adding it on your website will allow people to
visit, read it, and then leave, without any type of interaction. That
may be convenient for them, but it does absolutely nothing for you.
Personally, I prefer the Autoresponder route, as you can communicate
with your visitors and give them the mini course directly. Then again,
you could just give them updates and tell them when the mini course is
available on your website; which is win-win because you have their
email address and they are visiting your website as well. Can't go
The decision is completely up to you, but I recommend going with the
Autoresponder option, as it is a shoe in for repeat visitors and more
traffic. Of course, in order to do that, you need a Autoresponder
service that is reliable. If you don't already have one, I suggest
trying Aweber. They offer a money back guarantee, so there's nothing to
Most people believe that Aweber is the best in the business. Honestly,
I can't object to that because they have always satisfied me 110% of
Tip 38: Make Comments On Blogs
This technique is pretty straight forward and doesn't require a lot of
imagination. All you do is simply find blogs relating to your website's
topic and then post a comment about the blog itself.
Say something helpful or ask about a problem and then "innocently" add
your website link at the bottom of the comment (URL only!). If the
information in your comment comes across as an advertisement, the
poster may reject it. Then again, if it is genuinely helpful or
enlightening, he will keep it up and/or even make a reply to it. Plus,
this can potentially add a few backlinks to your website, and that
I advise you to search for blogs that are both popular and useful. That
way, not only will other people see your comments, but you may even get
some useful information out the the encounter as well.
