Press Releases For Traffic- Have You Submitted One Lately?
Press Releases are the easiest and one of the most effective ways to drive traffic to your website, establish credibility within your niche and build your brand. Whether you are in a competitive market or not, you can easily achieve first page search status by submitting a news announcement about your business or niche.
The main reason that these are so effective is because Google places a “news” section on the first page of their search results. Where do they get their news? From press release sites. So even if you are competing with millions of other pages for the normal organic search, you can get a major leg up on the competition by submitting an announcement.
Yes, your announcement may only stay on the first page for a few hours if others within your market are also actively submitting to the press, but you can achieve a great deal of sales in a few hours. Once you have been bounced off the front page news, you simply submit another release to get back in that spot again.
This is very powerful stuff. If you put a little effort into creating and submitting just one press release per day, you could spend the majority of your time on page one. Do you think that would be helpful to your business? I think so.
Another advantage is that many people interested in your market will subscribe to the news on press sites or on Google News. That means that by using this method, you have the ability to be placed in the inboxes and RSS feeds of many of your potential customers.
Not only will you realize more revenue, you will quickly establish credibility within your niche. This is particularly important if you are trying to establish your brand for your business or product.
If you are just getting started and your budget is tight, I suggest submitting to the various free press release sites available. I also suggest at least once per month, if you can afford it, to submit to a premium site. The premium sites tend to offer better services and there are also services out there that will, for a fee, handle your releases for you.
Whichever route you decide to take, you really should be adding this to your arsenal of SEO weapons that will help you gain an edge over your competition, get more traffic to your site and increase your sales. What is stopping you? Submit a press release today!
