10 Awesome Ways To Attract More Orders

Hi,

you'll never guess what everybody's asking me lately. "Blaz", they say, "please tell me how to attract more orders...". Well, since you've all been asking so nicely... :)

Get something to make some notes as this might seem short, but it's to the point and contains powerful techniques you can use right away to attract more orders from your web site. Here we go:

1. Create a free ebook directory on a specific topic at your web site. People will visit your web site to read the free ebooks and may see your product ad.

2. Turn part of your web site into a members only web site. Instead of charging for access, use it as a free bonus for one of your products.

3. Add a free classified ad section to your web site. You could then trade banner ads with other web sites that have free classified ad sections.

4. Create two versions of your e-zine so people can choose if they want ads included with it or not. This'll attract the people who hate ads to subscribe. With the latter group, always use the "by the way" approach when introducing them with your proposal.

5. Publish your e-zine only on your web site. Have people subscribe to a "new issue" e-mail reminder. This could really increase your traffic and sales. Also create RSS feeds to your site and let people subscribe to those.

6. Sell advertising space in your product package. You could sell inserts, flyers, brochures, booklets, and digital ads for electronic products.

7. Offer daily or weekly visitor bonuses. This will increase your repeat traffic and sales because your visitors will visit regularly to get the visitor bonuses. Kinda what I'm donig here. If you are a subscriber to my newsletter, then you know. If you're not yet, then subscribe now (you'll see a subscription form on the side bar on the main page of this blog).

8. Allow people to download software or e-books from your web site at no cost. Just ask your visitors in return if they'll refer their friends to your web site.

9. Build up the number of people that join your free affiliate program quickly by temporally offering your product for free to the people that sign up.

10. Negotiate with e-zine publishers to get free or discounted ads by letting them join your affiliate program and earn commissions on the ad you run. To pull this one off, you should first have some results and provide the e-zine publishers with them. For example say: "Hi, I've been testing my conversions lately and found out that my site converts 8% of the visitors to customers..." In essence, give them a compelling reason to put an ad for your site in their e-zine. But remember: Never lie! Always really do the research and provide real statistics.

Bonus tip: Nothing of the above will actually get you more sales if your web copy isn't good enough to convert traffic to subscribers/customers... Probably not many people bothered to tell you this key piece of information. Check out the free Copywriting crash course post for more details.

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did :) You can get some great bonuses and cash prizes if you subscribe to my newsletter. Go to the main page and subscribe. See you inside ;)

Have a great day.
