    I have MySpace, Google Adwords, SEO done, etc. But what else can I do to drive traffic to my site? I'm willing to pay for it as well as long as they are good leads.

    Thanks.

    Well I don't have first hand knowledge of it (I run a pharmacy site and it's kind of tough to apply as an advertiser) but sites such as Azoogle, Commission Junction, etc. offer a pretty cool way to drive traffic through affiliates. You apply as an advertiser and affiliates can promote your products through various means. Affiliates get paid if people successfully order through their sites/links. I believe you pay for the clicks.

    If you look at thomor's sticky at the top of the forum, he takes it a step further by employing arbitrage. Using PPC, they drive traffic to their sites which in turn should drive traffic/orders to your site. They profit because the commissions they receive outweighs the cost of PPC. I'm still learning how to do it, and it seems like it takes a lot of work, but people have made thousands of dollars per day doing this.

    edit: here's some more info http://www.cj.com/faq.html

    You need to setup an affiliate system with CJ/Share A Sale (there are plenty of others as well, those are the two I promote from personally)

    PM me if/when you do get it setup, I'll set up some campaigns to promote your stuff.

    affiliate traffic is where it's at.


    ROIRocket, azoogle, maxbounty, etc are all good ones to start with.

    You provide them with creatives (banners, landing pages, etc) and then dictate what you want.. Certain $$ amount per sale goes to affil company.. or a %.. whatever.

    Setup subid/affil tracking on your side.. throw in their pixel on our payment succesful page, and you're good to go.

    set up a google sitemap, then submit it to Google's Webmaster Tools, after a while you will be able to see what keywords people are using to find your site.

    Build from that.

    a lot of people i've talked to that are into affiliate marketing have told me that while MSN adcenter's system doesnt bring in TONS of traffic, they are usually very good quality leads that result in better conversions than adwords

    Don't forget to put google analytics (analytics.google.com) on your websites..; It shows you visitors, tracking, keywords, entrance and exit pages, as well as a map overlay to pinpoint where most of your traffic is coming from. This can help you with paper advertising if you're so inclined...

    Best tool I have come by this far..

    Oh and http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.php go here, copy the example site map.. and put your own links in for the example pages.. then read on how to submit the sitemap to searchengines.

    So, I have signed up for ROIRocket, azoogle, they said someone will be in touch with me.

    Isn't there an automated way to do this?
