Have you ever been in a situation where you put your heart, time and mind to writing your best article, thinking it get the most traffic ever, only to find that some days you literally have close to zero, or just a few, visitors reading “your best article”?
I have been there and been frustrated that crappy articles that could have cost less than 30 minutes of writing time are getting tons of traffic.
I just bumped into a new traffic method that is not widely common and in the coolers of not so many marketers.
The traffic trick is from Traffic Dashboard by Kim Roach and I want to share with you one of the over 24 methods in Traffic Dashboard. I tried this one method and saw over 500 visitors from just one of the channels in less than 1 week, just from 1 single article. I got close to instant traffic spikes – same day. I can’t wait to try out the other methods – Kim as usual is always not afraid to release all her best strategies in a single low cost product; many Gurus would make a kill unbundling the over 24 traffic methods to create 24 different products. Not Kim – and I like that.
I am sure Kim won’t mind me bringing this strategy in the open. If you know Kim, you’d know that she knows her stuff.
Well, let’s quickly delve into the 10X Method from the Traffic Dashboard.
Step 1: Write 1 article and submit to top 10 article directories.
Good contents easily get shared – people retweet, email, share on Facebook and other channels. Your content has to be damn good if you want to attract. If you are going to be using these strategies I am sharing, it means you’d be able to cut down on the number of articles you produce because just one can bring over 1,650 visitors every month.
Step 2 – Share each URL from every single article you submitted to the article directories to 30 Social Bookmarking Sites using both Ping.fm and Hootsuite’s 100% auto-submit feature. Both are free tools to automate social bookmarking of your articles.
Step 3 – Convert Article to PowerPoint Presentation
Convert that article you submitted to article directories to a PowerPoint Presentation and distribute to top 5 slide presentation (document) sharing sites such as slideshare, slideboom, authorstream and slideburner.
Step 5 -Convert the Same Article to Audio Podcast
Convert same article to an audio and submit to top 5 podcast directories like itunes, odeo, podcastalley, podfeed and podcast.net.
Step 6 – Convert Article to Video
Now convert that article to a video and distribute to top 5 video sharing sites like Youtube, metacafe and vimeo. You can automate your video submission with traffic geyser (paid) or tubemogul (free).
Step 5 – Convert Article to a How-To Tutorial
Transform that same article to a how-to, step-by-step tutorial and submit to top 5 tutorial sites including ehow, tutorialized.com, good-tutorials.com,designm.ag.com
Step 6 – Convert Article to PDF
Convert your article into a PDF (like eBook) format and submit to top eBook directories such as free-ebooks.net, getfreeebooks.com
Step 7 – Distribute that PDF
Submit that same PDF to top document sharing sites like scribd and docstoc.
Now you can see how you can literally extend the power of just a single article and give it wings. Are you beginning to imagine how many unique visitors each of those sites can bring you every month?
Just to give you an example, I submitted 2 of my PDF articles on Scribd and got over 500 views in less than 1 week. These PDF articles would continue to bring me visitors month after month.
Now let’s do the math – 1,650 visitors from just 1 article.
– You’ve got 1 article repurposed to over 5 formats (video, audio, tutorials, PDF etc) and distributed in 55 different channels for traffic
– 55 Distribution Channels, 1 single article:
o 10 article directories
o 20 bookmarking sites (assuming you only signed up with 20 of 46 bookmarking sites supported by ping.fm)
o 5 slide presentation sharing sites
or 5 podcast directories
o 5 video sharing sites
the 5 tutorial sites
o 5 document sharing sites
Now, let’s take our math a little further but we’ll be very modest for a start, however expect traffic spikes over the months. Imagine in the first month each distribution channel brings in 1 visitor daily, that would be 30 visitors monthly. So you could have an average of 1,650 visitors monthly from 1 single article every month.
Have you seen how you get spend a fraction of the time you spend on article writing and power every single article just by repurposing it into different formats and distributing them to different channels. That way you can be sure to satisfy the information consumption preferences of different audience – audio, video and text.
With this strategy, all you need to put more power into creating exceptional articles and blog posts instead of dissipating energy by creating low quality silo articles.
Imagine again using this content syndication strategy for traffic on most of your articles? That would be putting your article marketing on steroids.
By the way, the traffic getting method I just shared with you is only one of over 20 modules containing tons of unusual traffic strategies in Kim Roach’s new Traffic Dashboard containing tons of different unusual and unpopular traffic getting methods.
Getting over 500 views from just 1 article I syndicated in only one of the 55 distribution channels Kim exposes (a fraction I shared here), I can’t wait to start implementing the other methods in this module and the other modules.
I hope you’ll take action to implement this method on your website. I’d love to hear your results with this traffic strategy – feel free to share it with me.
