|Tip 73: Start Getting Involved With Joint Ventures!
It's not hard for someone to generate website traffic all on their own,
but sometimes it's just a good idea to get a partner, which is exactly
where joint ventures come in handy.
Remember when I told you about buying ad space in newsletters? Well,
this is similar to that. However, instead of buying the space, you will
approach the newsletter publisher with a very enticing offer. This
offer will involve giving them a free copy of your E-book or software
and/or a nice slice of the revenue pie (from the traffic that the
publisher brings in).
Why is this better than simply buying advertising space? Because the
publisher takes a greater interest in promoting your website or product
and you build up your business at the same time.
With the newsletter publisher actively promoting your website and/or
products, you should generate a lot more sales than if you were to
merely place a small ad in his/her newsletter. And if you're really
smart, you will do as you have always have done and build a squeeze
page to maximize your traffic gains.
I could endlessly go on about Joint Ventures and how powerful they are,
but I just don't have that kind of time. What I will do is point you in
the direction of the best Joint Venture resource I have ever come
across. Take a Look....

Tip 74: Create Some Useful Software For Your Visitors!
Can't Create Software? Well, Then you're out of luck,Move Along.
Ha, That was a good one. Fooled You, didn't I? No? Well, I'll have to
remember to get you next time. Alright, that's enough kidding around
for now; time to get serious.
The truth is that you don't need to be an expert software coder to get
useful software; you simply have to find someone who is and then pay
them to create it. Discouraged? Don't be, because it's a lot easier
than you'd think. There are plenty of websites that can assist you in
finding people to outsource your software project to. Elance.com,
GetaFreeLancer.com, Guru.com, and RentaCoder.com are just a few of
Sign up, list a project, and then different fre.elancers will bid on
that project. When you see a bid you that you think is reasonable,
accept it and then contact the winning bidder. Bingo, you just found
yourself a software programmer that can create software to your exact
specifications. Pretty simple, do you agree?
Now that you know how to go about finding someone to create the
software, you have to answer the next important question, which is:
"what type of software should I create and why should I create it?"
The "why" part is pretty easy to answer; to generate more web site
traffic. No one can resist free software, especially if it solves a
particular problem or helps to resolve a specific issue. However, it's
the "what" part that might give you some trouble.
There's no point in hiring someone to create software if no one is
going to use it. It would just be a waste of money and time. Therefore,
you're really going to have to find something that helps or entertains
your visitors. I couldn't possibly think of all the different types of
software that can be created; so you'll just have to do your best and
use that creative part of your brain to come up with something
original. Remember, you just need the idea; the software programmer
will take care of the rest.
Quick Note: Creating software, whether it's downloadable or web-based,
is a sure-fire way to generate more traffic and get people interested.
Although, the word (usually) won't spread without you're help. You have
to let people know that your software exists, and you have to tell them
what it can do. Contact newsletter publishers, announce it on forums,
create a press release, write articles, and do whatever else you must
to get the word out. In retrospect, you are actually advertising your
website by advertising your software.
Always keep in mind that "Visit My Website to Download This Free
Software!" works a whole lot better than "Please Visit My Website, I'm
