Content Traffic PREsell is the engine that drives successful e-businesses. Not just any content, though. High-quality relevant information, written to please both human visitors and Search Engines alike, is what turns information into income.
And you need lots of content to pull in targeted traffic. Once you have twenty-five to thirty pages of content, you can see business-building momentum happening. With a hundred pages, your site's foundation is solid, with room to grow, of course.
Researching and writing customer-focused content pages is one of the most time-consuming aspects of your e-business, at least in the early stages. You are always on the hunt for fresh topic ideas and new trends within your niche market. Plus...
It's critical for you, especially in the beginning, to put your personal stamp on your site via your writing style. That's how your visitors get to know, like, and trust you, the person behind the site and business. It's your content that "warms them up."
Information-packed content presented with personality both attracts and presells targeted traffic. Presold visitors convert more easily into customers. Conversion = Profits. And round and round the C T P M process goes.
It all begins with Content. There's an easy way to fuel that "C" sparkplug and it won't cost you a cent...
Connect and interact with your visitors. They are on your site because they are interested in your topic. Some of them will have questions. Some of them have experiences to share or knowledge to brag about. Why not invite them to communicate this information on your site?
Be creative. You could have forms available to collect their ideas or ask visitors to tell their story via a video or set up your own forum, etc. No matter how you invite your visitors to communicate with, the end result will be the same. Interactivity helps you understand your market better while triggering ideas for new content pages.
SBI! 2.0 takes visitor interactivity to the next level. It enables every visitor to your site to write a new Web page for you, complete with text, images, or a video. Each new page is automatically linked within your site for optimal Search Engine results.
As your site gets found for more keywords, especially long-tail words, your Search Engine rankings improve. Higher visibility on the Net means more targeted traffic, more engaged visitor submissions and more potential income streams.
Google AdSense advertising is an easy way to monetize your visitors' submissions. (Acceptance into the Google AdSense program allows you to place small niche-related ads on your site's pages.) "AdSense It!," a tool within the SBI! 2.0 system, simplifies this strategy even further. Because you know best your visitors' advertising tolerance levels, AdSense It! lets you determine your advertising "aggressivity" level on submission pages.
AdSense It! provides a near infinite number of placements (invisible to you), varying the presentation of ads according to the length of the visitor submission page and associated comments. By enabling you to choose how 'aggressive' you want to be with your AdSense ads, AdSense It! individualizes the presentation for each page built. Once you set up AdSense It!, you can forget it. Each time a visitor adds a submission, the newly created content page displays the AdSense ads according to your set preferences.
And that brings us full circle...
A profitable "M" stage, even with the help of tools, such as AdSense It!, doesn't happen magically. It grows from a solid foundation of high-value content, targeted traffic and strong engaged relationships with your visitors... C T P M.
See how SBI! 2.0 and AdSense It! can help you grow your e-business.
