I’m just in the process of having my website updated and, once complete, want to make sure that I am attracting the maximum amount of traffic to the site. I’m also interested in sending out marketing emails to potential corporate clients.

Has anybody got any thoughts on the best source of advice – i.e. how to best utilize search engines (and maintain placement), whether to use sponsored links on search engines, how to design a marketing email, how to choose search keywords for the site etc. I’ve seen ads for Joe Vitale’s publications (which seem quite expensive). Has anybody had any experience of these, or anything similar?

D.J., You are asking the right questions.

What you are asking is very critical to make your site work for you.

I can not answer you in such a short amount of space and give you the details you need.

But, I do have several suggestions for you.

Email me privately and I will share with you my successes and what I have had to pay dearly for.

I am impressed that you are smart enough to ask.

I've personally found Google Ad words to be an excellent source of traffic at a very reasonable cost.

It can take a long time to get listed on the main listings of search engines. Using the Ad Words concept you can get placed striaght away right at the top.

Try and get as many reciprocal links to magic sites as possible as this will help your positioning on engines like Google.

Just a few thoughts...

Depends what your market is. I just did a site for a retail magic shop whose main clientel is tourists, so I "Googled" and
"Yahooed" for sites to advertise him. Like chamber of commerce, visitor bureaus, hotels, travel agents, shopping malls, attractions in his area.

DJ Also you should use a banner exchange program and buy ad space on top magic sites.

There is a good book out called something like, "Multiple Streams of Internet Income." It's an excellent book for marketing on the web.

DJ,

Your original question was how to drive traffic to your website. My answer would be conditional on exactly who you are trying to attract.

Websites are amazing tools. But driving traffic CAN be unbelievably expensive! I've pretty much done it all. In 2000, I spent $12,000.00 USD on Internet advertising.

If you are local, you can generate incredible amounts of FREE traffic to your site. You can build a list of interested clients and market them a monthly newsletter for zero cost. THIS is probably the best way to go, generally speaking and without knowing your specific needs/requirements.

Finally, Joe Vitale's books are unreservedly fabulous. Really, really good. I HAVE bought books of his and not used his stuff, but I have never bought a book that would be considered "not good". They are fabulous. You can find him at http://www.mrfire.com

Best of luck!

Cheers

Blair

Forgive me for reviving an old thread. I just invested a small fortune in Dr. Joe Vitale's products, and was doing a search.

I just want to mention that Steve is a wealth of knowledge. He is also very generous with said knowledge. I only wish I had taken advantage of it when I had the chance.

Just for the fun of knowing, Joe Vitale is also a magician/mentalist and an avid collector of P.T. Barnum material.

His book, "There's a Customer Born Every Minute" and his "Power of Outrageous Marketing" Audio book are excellent.

Thanks,
Richard
