Drive Traffic To Your Site with Free Classified Ads

You’ve created a great site and generate a respectable level of traffic. But, your web stats show that most of your visitors check out your site, visit a couple of pages, and never return again. We’ve all heard that a prospect must see your message at least seven times before you’ve earned their trust and they decide to buy what you’re selling. Are you missing out in potential sales because they come to your site and then leave forever?

Several website owners are using Free Classified Ads to tap new markets and provide their visitors with a reason to keep coming back. If you can give your prospects a reason to return to your site, you have additional opportunities to earn their trust…and their business.

Here’s an example,

Let’s say your site offers hard to find auto parts for classic cars. Related markets probably include classic cars, used cars, hot rods, corvettes, etc. People buying and selling these vehicles could also have an interest in auto parts for these vehicles.

By advertising that your auto parts site accepts free classified ads for vehicles, you generate additional traffic. Buyers and sellers search the web, find that you accept free ads, and visit your site to post ads for their cars. As they post free ads, check on the number of times their ad has been shown and visited, they keep returning to your site. Each return visit is an opportunity to share your auto parts offers with them.

Here’s how it works. You place a link to your free classified ads site using appropriate keywords for your market (“Free Corvette Ads”, “Free Hot Rot Classifieds”, “Free Used Car Ads”). Search engines just love these types of links, and including these keywords will undoubtedly improve your ranking for exactly the type of prospect you want to attract to your site. Greater visibility means better traffic.

Here’s an added benefit. When your visitors post their free classifieds, they are presented with an offer to upgrade their free ad with enhancements (feature ad, color, bolded listing, etc). This sets their offer apart from the free ads and gains better exposure for them. Most classified ad affiliate programs will pay you a percentage (usually 10-20%) of the upgrade cost. You’ve just created another income stream for your site.

By joining and incorporating a free Classified Ad Affiliate Program into your site, you create the ultimate win-win-win. You provide your visitors with a free value-added benefit, you improve your rankings with the search engines by incorporating keyword hyperlinks into your site, you attract additional markets to expose to your product, you create an additional revenue stream as they upgrade their ads, and you give your prospects a reason to return to your site again and again. Join a Classified Ad Affiliate Program today and watch as your traffic, and your business, improve tomorrow.
