Looking For Traffic Sources
Posted by Anonymous on

My target market is self published authors of non fiction books that want to make more money from their work. What ideas do you have for finding these partcular individuals and get them to visit a site. (dealing with conversion rates of site visitors separately, just need help with ideas for traffic generation for this specific group.)
P.S. Looking for lots of alternatives. Paid sources ok. Free sources requiring extra work, even better.
Thank you in advance to the marketing gurus here,

Have you considered Google AdWords?
Check out the main Web site for
. It is the most widely used pay-per-click system so at least worth looking into for what you are trying to do.

One of the big tricks is to offer them something useful. What are you offering these authors that would want them to visit. It is one thing to get traffic. It is another to get people to stay at the site and use it.
Offer some advice, how to publish, how to market, etc. The more useful your information the more likely authors will link to your site and spread the word.
Have you speant any time optimizing your site for search engines? This is a must if you are hoping for people to find your site.
