What are these internet marketing tools and tactics?

1. Use single web pages to market each product you have. Do not combine all of them together to save a little money on web hosting. It is best to have a site dedicated to each product.

Include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an preview of what the product can do for them. Include testimonials from users who have already purchased the product. Make sure these customers are willing to allow you to use their names and photos to promote the specific product you are marketing.

Write articles stating the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive, compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to read more. Highlight your focal points.

2. Provide free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they cannot be missed. Create autoresponder messages that will be sent to those who put their information into your sign up box. According to research, a sale is closed usually on the seventh contact with a prospect. Build that list!

Only two things can happen using a web page alone: a closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never returning. By placing usefulinformation in their in-boxes at specific times, you will remind them of your product. Be sure that the content is focused on beneficial reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.

Focus on key points like how your product can make things simpler and more enjoyable. Include catchy subject lines in the email. Avoid using the word “free” because there are still older spam filters that dump that kind of content into the junk before anyone can view it. Convince those who signed up for your free reports that they will be missing something big.

3. Get traffic that is targeted to your product. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that are focusing on your targeted customers.

Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can send targeted readers to your site every day.
Remember, only 1 out of 100 website visitors are likely to buy your product or get your services.
