your website via Start Page Exchanges is a bit like holding up a sign
at the airport - lots of people see you but nobody cares.
with Start Page Exchanges, you set your browser home page to display a
special URL given to you when you join the Exchange and other members
do the same. Their websites show up as your browser home page and your
website shows up as theirs.
This guarantees extra hits to your
website, but the quality of the traffic isn't the best. There's little
or no targeting so your message rarely reaches the right people.
Start Page Exchanges are closed systems. In other words, your site is
only being promoted to those people who are ACTIVELY using the system.
The same surfer will probably see your website several times over.
with a little bit of work, you can devise a Start Page Exchange
strategy that will get several systems working simultaneously and
bringing in high-quality, targeted traffic - not just from members of
the exchange itself, but from right across the Internet. Here's how it
STEP 1 - GET YOUR PAGE RIGHT...
a web page especially for the Start Page Exchanges. This can be a page
from your website (if it's a real attention grabber) or it can be
something separate altogether. The important thing is that this page
has got to scream "LOOK AT ME!"
Remember, the only people who
use Start Page Exchanges are webmasters. If your own product or service
isn't of interest to webmasters, it will be a hard sell. Find a product
or service that has a good affiliate program and that's geared towards
the needs of webmasters. Promote that product via your Start Page
Exchange page. Try to offer something for free - an e-book, a demo, a
free trial, or whatever. Many of the better affiliate programs will
give you free stuff to promote. The ClickBank MarketPlace is a good
place to start looking: http://clickbank.com/marketplace/
By way of example, take a peek at the page I use on the Start Page Exchanges: http://www.bizzydays.com/47k/
Now that you've got an attention-grabbing page that's geared towards webmasters, let's move on...
STEP 2 - DOUBLE THE TRAFFIC...
This is where we add some extra elements to the page that brings in lots of extra traffic from outside the exchanges.
you looked at my example page and then closed it, you'll have noticed
that a separate window then opened in the background. That Window was
'delivered' by ExitExchange:
joining ExitExchange (for free) and placing their code on my Start Page
Exchange page, I get my website displayed to a surfer elsewhere on the
Internet for every two times my Start Page Exchange page is visited.
ExitExchange offers targeting, so I can be sure that my website is
being shown to people who are interested in what I've got to offer.
my Start Page Exchange page I've also place an exchange banner at the
bottom. Again, for every two times my Start Page Exchange page is
visited, my banner is displayed on a book-related website.
two steps have hugely increased the amount of traffic my Start Page
Exchanges generate AND it brings in high-quality TARGETED traffic.
But it doesn't stop there! Let's move on to the next step...
STEP 3 - AUTOMATE IT...
that you've set up your Start Page Exchange page to maximize the return
from each page display, it's time to maximize the amount of actual page
displays you get.
Now, I'm sure you don't want to spend hours
clicking through Start Page Exchange pages to generate hits, which is
