The Importance of Tracking Your Traffic

By
The Software Gold Club

Would you like to know how I continue to give myself a pay raise, without really doing much work?

I simply set up “tracking mechanisms” for all my traffic sources. This lets me see which reports, ebooks, articles, and joint ventures, etc. are working well and which aren't.

Then, I simply drop the ones that don't work and focus more of my time on those that do work! And it takes less time to do than you would think!

Imagine being able to double, even triple your profits within a matter of hours? Wouldn't you become addicted to such a strategy? I sure hope so.

See, the gurus and top experts know this secret! And, they're reaping the rewards. It's time we all started getting the kind of results they're getting everyday!

It's all about maximizing your time, effort, and resources… and most importantly, your results!

And you can either “guess” at what's working, just like most people do… or you can test things out (like the experts do) and get maximum results out of everything you do for your business.

No guru or expert can tell you what the best strategy for your business is. No copywriting expert can create a salesletter for you that will guarantee maximum results and profits. Only you can. By testing.

You can beat the results off any advice, tip or strategy you get from the experts… no matter how good they are… simply by testing it out and making it better!

Here's an example of a 'headline' test I did for one of my reports…

I wrote a report and called it, “How I Got 1000 Subscribers in One Week!”

The title worked and I got quite a few downloads and requests for it.

But, I decided to test another headline just to see if I could get even better results. (And you can always get better results! You just have to test it out and see.)

So, I rewrote the headline to read…

“How I Got 1,124 Subscribers in One Week!” (I used a more specific number instead of a round figure of 1000.)

Results improved!

So, I changed something else and ended up with…

“How I Got 1,124 Subscribers in 6 Days!” (Again, I used a more specific number… “6” insntead of “one week.”)

And again, results improved.

How long do you think it took me to change the headline?

Just a few minutes. And my results jumped by over 30%!

Was it worth it? You bet!

Even if the change improves your results by just 1 percent, it still means more profits for you!

And, don't be surprised if you're able to improve results by 5, 10, 20, or even 50% by continuing to test.

The best marketers are not necessarily the smartest or most popular or the richest. They are the best because they don't assume anything!

They are the best because they test and retest every single piece of their marketing system. They make sure that they're getting the maximum results for their time, and dollars!

Don't you deserve to maximize your results and profits in the same way?

Imagine changing a single word in your headline that instantly doubles your profits!

It's definitely worth the time and effort, believe me. In fact, it doesn't take that much time and energy to do these tests at all.

It's easy money.
You can test just about every component of your marketing system and business. And each time you do, it's like giving another adrenaline shot to your profits!

The best place to start is, of course, with your ads and sales letters!

Now you know the secret. Don't let it go to waste like most people will do! Be different and you can break the !

Test… tEsT… TeSt… and TEST!

Then, just sit back and watch your profits soar!

Test everything, and test every traffic stream that is coming in. That's the best, and fastest, way to continue giving yourself a pay raise, without doing much work at all!

Final Thoughts

Some of the strategies I have discussed may take a little more effort up front, and a little longer to snowball. But when they do, it'll be all worth it! Like I said before, pick only a handful of the best strategies and invest all your time into them. Forget the rest…at least for right now.
They'll only waste your time.

Every strategy you use should offer high leverage so you can get massive results with little work up front … and/or … have the capability to create a viral/snowball effect so that it can continue to work for you indefinitely.

The great thing about using the strategy is that you can just about make a profit from any ad, article or ebook that you publish. It reduces your . So, if you don't make money immediately, it's okay. As your virus continues to spread, it will continue to generate
traffic, and profits, for you. Therefore, whenever possible, try to add the viral twist to all your marketing strategies.

Always remember that the best strategies are not necessarily the sexiest, or the newest, or the most complex. They are usually simple and straightforward.

You may be wondering what I think about using other commonly mentioned techniques … like posting on forums, using signature lines, business cards, custom-printed pens, etc. I really don't have anything against them. You can use them all. Just don't depend on them entirely. Most of them are fairly slow, expensive, or just inconsistent traffic generators. If any of them are working for you well, then obviously, keep using them!

If not, don't continue to throw money at a dead strategy. I see most businesses doing this with Yellow Pages advertising. They continue to renew their ads without ever tracking the results of their ads. As a result, they continue to flush money down the drain.

The best advice I can give you on generating traffic, or any other marketing related subject, is this…

Don't try to go at it alone. Most of us don't have the time or the energy to build a business all by ourselves. You don't want to spend every waking hour on your business. (You also need to give to your non-business relationships and your physical & mental health.)

So, if you have the cash to spend on high-priced ads, that's great. If you don't, go to the people who are already successful, who are already at the top of the , who already have large customer bases.

Ask for joint ventures. Ask for endorsements. Ask them to become your affiliates. Ask for help! And help them back! In fact, help them first! Make it worth their while and the chances of them helping you go up dramatically!

Most of the successful people are very generous. They'll be happy to help if they're able to and have the time.

Approach every strategy by first asking these questions…”What can I do for them? What do they need that I can provide? How can I make it worth their while?”

Do that and you'll get the joint ventures, you'll get the ebooks circulated and the reports published, you'll probably even get invited to the radio or talkshows that you're interested in.

Always start by finding out what it is that they want!

And, by the way, it's not about tricking others into doing something for you. Not at all. It's about honestly stepping into their shoes for a moment and finding out how you can help them get what they want. That's the best way to create any worthwhile relationship.

If what you're doing right now is producing the kind of results you're after, good for you.

If you're not getting the kind of results you'd like and you seriously want to get more, put these handful of strategies to use.

Don't let the simplicity fool you. These techniques are very powerful – if you apply them correctly, and with a little creativity.

Understand the mindset behind them and understand why they work so well. Give them the added twists that I describe. Then, unleash them and watch the magic!

Traffic generation, and in fact marketing in general, is a numbers game. The more traffic you can get to your site in the shortest amount of time possible, the better your chances are for succeeding.

And always remember that…at the end of the day, your goal is not to “get more traffic” but to create more customers! Happy, satisfied 'repeat' customers. So, while you're working towards getting more traffic to your site, always keep in mind that converting that traffic to subscribers & customers is really what it's all about.

May your web site get hit by a never-ending traffic jam and an avalanche of profits! 🙂
