How to Boost Your Traffic and Profits with Content!
Are you aware of how vitally important and valuable CONTENT is to your online business? In fact, content can do more to build your business and profits than just about any other resource or service available.
Following is a list of 5 key ways that content can help build your traffic, subscribers, and customers starting today!...
1. Boost your search engine ranking and daily visitor count by posting keyword rich articles and content on your web-site. For example, if your business involves offering products and services related to fitness, posting fitness related articles and content will attract unlimited prospective customers on a regular basis!
2. Generate double or even triple the number of newsletter subscribers you do currently, simply by offering content in the form of "special reports" or manuals as bonuses for subscribing to your publication. People love freebies, so give them what they want and watch as your results increase!
3. Create an automated cashflow by using content to formulate multi-part email training courses with related web-site or affiliate links "sprinkled" throughout each course. Use an autoresponder service to automate the delivery of your training course (such as a 5 part training course delivered over a 5 day period).
Training courses can also serve as excellent bonus offers for your prospective newsletter subscribers.
4. One of the most important keys to a successful online business is not JUST having a list of mailing list or newsletter subscribers... It's about building a trusting relationship with your subscribers (ie, "cultivating" your list)...
By sending informative articles (content) to your list on a regular basis you will establish yourself as an expert on your topic of business, as well as gain the trust of your subscribers over time. As a result, your subscribers will be EAGER to take advantage of your "paid" product and service offers. (Just make sure that you NEVER take advantage of the relationship you develop with your list by offering products or services of poor quality just to make a quick buck!)
If there is one "constant" in Internet marketing, it's this: A cultivated list of subscribers is as good as money in the bank. Write that down and never forget it!
5. Another excellent way to generate no cost traffic is by submitting ready-made articles to "content hungry" web-site and newsletter publishers with your "resource box" attached. A resource box is nothing more than a little 3-6 line "bio" about you and/or your web-site - including a link to your site (or even instructions on how to subscribe to your newsletter)...
When submitting or offering your article(s) for reprint purposes, just make sure to specify that each article is to be reprinted "as is" with your resource box attached.
...Even one article can go a LONG way towards generating no cost traffic and visitors for you. Just imagine your article being sent out to a newsletter subscriber base of 100,000 individuals - many of whom will be reading YOUR included resource box and clicking on your URL to learn more about what you have to offer!
Well there you have it, 5 sure ways to build your online business exponentially with the help of articles and content...
With the declining effectiveness of many of the online advertising methods that we've relied on in past years, content is only strengthening its position as the ultimate KEY to generating unlimited traffic, subscribers, and customers!

Minisite or a Theme Based Content Site - How to get Started ?
It is really difficult to decide as to how to get started.
Whether to create a minisite and focus upon selling a single product or create a killer content site and sell multiple products.
There are many gurus who recommend a minisite system whereas few recommend to create a killer content rich site.
First lets talk about minisites...
Minisite is a 1 to 5 page site and its main focus is on selling a single product.
You can sell your own product by constructing a powerful salesletter or sell some affiliate product by preselling your affiliate program and directing them to the affiliate site.
To sell with minisites you require a whole lot of creativity, as the minisites mainly focus on a sales pitch.
You either get the visitor to purchase your product or they will quit.
Minisites fail to provide huge valuable content, therefore it is difficult to make the visitor stay on your site for a long time.
Secondly it is difficult to build search engine traffic on a minisite. Search engines love keyword rich theme based content site.
You just can't target many important keywords on a 1 to 5 page minisite than you can do on a 200-page content site.
It is difficult to build credibility with a minisite unless you are a renowned and established expert on a particular topic.
Now lets move on to a theme based content site...
Theme based content sites are nothing but quality rich site with huge content that targets a particular topic or a theme.
It is easy to attract search engine traffic to a keyword rich theme based content site.
Lets say you created a 200 page content site and each page is stuffed with 1 important keyword of your niche.
That means your site will now receive targeted traffic from 200 keywords right from the search engines.
Search engines will rank your site higher due to its quality content which will in turn get you more traffic.
Due to its quality content the visitor will stay on your site for a long time. Thus improving your chances to make a sale.
Due to the quality content you provide on your site you establish credibility and your visitors start respecting you and consider you as an expert. This in turn improves your chances of closing more sales.
From the above discussion you can clearly see that it makes more sense to create a content rich site tightly targeting a particular theme.
While statistics have proved that creating just a one page minisite with right psychological formulas will sell $1000s worth of products.
This is what I have personally done and has worked for me...
I make use of minisites as well as content sites to sell my products.
I created a 5 page minisite that sells my products and services. I also created 3 content sites worth 100s of pages that presells my visitors and drags them to my minisites.
What I would suggest you to do is create a simple minisite, test it and then once it works fine and pulls in great profits start creating a killer content rich site around your theme and divert your traffic to your minisite.
This system has worked for me and I bet will work for you.
So don't get confused as to how to get started. Just take the first step and MOVE ON...
