Ooops, been a long time I must say since the last post and I apologize for that. Thanks to all of you who still took the time to come and read my posts anyways. I hope you all had a good Christmas. I enjoyed mine.
The holiday season can either be a slow one or a very busy one depending on what type of business you are in. For me it was filled more with getting people to know I exist than for selling much.I am hoping by next Christmas though I will be swamped with orders for my books.
We need to stay focused and with our eyes always fixed on the goal even when we are tempted to give up because things are taking longer than we hoped. I like to remind myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
I have so many artiles I have saved to share with you and now I need to decide what to post first. Seeing as it is a chatty time of year I thought this was an appropriate theme for discussion.
Chatting your Way to Increased Website Traffic
Copyright 2005 Anton Cheranev
Millions of people are drawn to the websites every day just
to chat. Chatting is one of the most popular activities
done by those using the web. Many people admit that once
they begin chatting, they become almost addicted to it.
The average online “chatter” will log on at least once a
day for a chat. Although there is no definite reason why
people love this form of communication, there is something
to be learned by their behavior. When it comes to your
website traffic, you may be able to utilize this chat
“addiction” to increase website traffic. There are two
main ways you can use chatting to help your site. One
involves less startup time, but more maintenance time by
you. The other involves a longer startup time, but less
maintenance. Consider these ideas and begin using chatting
to help your website increase traffic immediately.
If you are interested in using the chat audience, then you
can certainly log in a few hours a day delivering
advertisement to them. This basically means that you can
go into chat rooms with the purpose of posting your website
link into the chat. You can do this randomly, hitting a
room, posting the link without prompt from other chatters,
and leaving to another room. This is the best way to reach
the largest number of chatters. The best way to do this is
to join rooms that relate in some way to your website and
its content. However, by doing this, you will likely
annoy some chatters, which is not good for your website.
You can decide whether the risk is worth it or not.
You can also be more personal about your advertisements.
This will call for going to rooms where you think the most
selective targeted audience may be located. For instance,
if your website is about music, then you may want to visit
chat rooms with music themes. Once you engage in
conversation a bit, you can freely and casually bring your
website link into conversation. You may gain more respect
with this approach but you will likely not have as large of
an audience as with the random posts. If you are an avid
chatter, then also consider adding your website link to
your chatting profile. As you chat, others in the room
will be looking at your profile, without you even knowing
they are doing so. This is a subtle, but effective way to
use chatting to help increase your website’s traffic.
Those that view your profile will likely want to check out
your site and may even tell others about it as well.
Another way to use chatting to increase website traffic is
by adding a chat element to your website. This will likely
take quite a while to set up. Adding chat to your room is
not the simplest thing to do. It can however be a great
way to draw people into your website. This is especially
true if your website is about a specific hobby, passion, or
job. If you have a retail site, it is unlikely that chat
would be appropriate. However, if your site is about stock
tips, then a chat room would enable traders to discuss tips
and information with each other, which would likely keep
them and their friends coming back frequently. One thing
to remember however is that you should always monitor your
website’s chat area every once in a while. It would be
unfortunate to have chatters using your room
inappropriately or abuse certain policies you have placed
upon chatters. This would only make your website look
Using chatting to help increase website traffic is a free
way to advertise. If you do chat often, you have likely
seen other chatters using this delivery as well. Take note
on which methods of chat delivery is most attractive to you
when you see others doing the same thing. This will allow
you to have a view on both sides of the issue and likely
help you to create a plan that is more effective. The more
time and effort you put into this task, the faster you will
see results, so go ahead and start right away!
