5 Weird Ways To Buy Traffic That Actually Work
Traffic Exchanges were designed as a way to “trade traffic” between website owners. While nobody that knows what they’re doing would ever recommend surfing weird websites all day long, those that do are a great target for business opportunities and traffic related offers. Most of these services offer the ability to buy credits instead of surfing.
For this to work, the network cannot be an “autosurf” network. Every member that doesn’t pay for clicks, needs to click from one site to the next. They normally use a browser extension to make this work. If you see the word “autosurf” anywhere, it’s not worth paying them to show up to their customers. Nobody is looking at the sites and the next one in line pops up automatically.
Test out your offer with a small amount of credits on a non-autosurf network to see if what you sell is a good fit for this kind of traffic.
Launchbit is a cost-per-click (CPC) email service. You pay-per-click on an ad that gets sent via email. It’s a very unique network, but they have access to most major niches. Their lists are pretty huge and the cost-per-click is generally much lower than more mainstream advertising services like Google or Facebook.
With any CPC advertising, you have to have a very clear budget in mind before you test out any network. Make sure you limit your budget to whatever you’re comfortable with for your first test.
Outbrain is the service that provides those sponsored results under posts on your favorite blogs. Publishers identify their audience and Outbrain will place links to their content under high traffic, relevant blog posts. They represent some of the highest traffic websites online, so it’s worth considering. Even if you have to custom create a new sequence or funnel, this is an inexpensive traffic source.
This kind of advertising works best with high quality content or advertorials. An advertorial generally shows people how to best use a product or complete an overly difficult task that a product makes much easier. If your products fall into either of those situations, it’s worth trying.
Sponsoring someone or something is an easy way to gain access to an audience that should know about your products. The best part about sponsoring someone is that most times, giving them a simple affiliate link is enough to get a community leader to recommend your products. As long as you have something of value to offer their audience and they can profit from it, you can get tons of exposure and a large amount of leads and sales from an arrangement like this.
Don’t assume that you can just go in with a financial offer and have someone respond. You have to cover the value you’ll be providing their audience, too. Make sure you cover both in your initial conversation and you may be able to make a very profitable arrangement for all involved.
