1. Numerous internet marketing programs will tell you “short article advertising” is a good approach for advertising or advertising your niche, website, affiliate eBook or product. This style of marketing is particularly effective for individuals who have a nonexistent or little marketing budget.

When writing articles you have the opportunity to. furnish usable information to your reader and provide links to your website, eBook or affiliate program.

You will also be able to use the viral effect of article marketing by submitting your articles to article directories, third-party sites and ezine publishers. Finally, allow reprinting of your articles as long as the promotional links are maintained within the article.

2. “Viral advertising” is an additional terrific approach of advertising and driving traffic to your site. This is not a new method and is well suited as an eBook marketing strategy. It targets people who like to share ideas, network, and have a similar interest.

You can start a viral marketing campaign by simply making an attractive offer to customers on your mailing list; submitting an article that you’ve written, by providing away something for free, or offering a substantial discount.

At the same time give them the option of passing the information along to their family, associates and good friends knowing they will understand at least another individual that will have an interest in exactly what you’re offering. This strategy should allow you to see a visible boost in traffic.

Both of these strategies are excellent methods for marketing any product or service. However when combined they work together to unleash an extraordinary eBook marketing strategy.

The best way to attract visitors is to give away something for free. Produce an eBook that you can give away for free. Write an informational article about your eBook. Place that article on your website, in your autoresponder and post ads giving away your ebook.

Include an invitation for interested parties to pass your information around. This makes it very easy for your visitors to recommend your site to people they know. Referral marketing is a great way to find qualified prospects, according to Billie Richards. Getting customers to buy new or unfamiliar products, like treadmill desks, can be challenging without a third “known” party who is making a recommendation.

Obviously, these are not the only methods, but represent a fairly easy eBook marketing strategy for driving traffic to your site. These methods have been used by scores of marketers with an excellent deal of success and, if done correctly, need to prove to be similarly effective for you, too.
