Use A Tell A Friend Method To Drive Traffic

Use A Tell A Friend Method To Drive Traffic
Published on June 8, 2012

More and more website owners have the recurring dilemma on how to increase the flow of traffic in the websites. During the past few years many methods have been developed to solve this predicament. While most of them would work, there are those that would not make even a small impact.

One of the methods that have spawned many success stories in driving traffic into websites is viral marketing. Viral marketing makes use of the tendency of a person to share something to find informative, entertaining or amazing.

Many companies bank on this behavior to spread their products and increase the popularity of their company or their website. Viral marketing makes use of many mediums in enticing this behavior. One of the easiest methods in viral marketing is using a tell a friend script. Find Your Net offers this method implemented via Share to Facebook, Tweeter and email to friend options on all of our templates. 

Tell a friend script eliminates greatly the chances of being blocked because they use the information inputted by the sender. This allows for wider spreading of this marketing method. It can be quite sneaky but it is very effective.

Then the process begins again. As more people use the tell a friend script, more and more people will know of the existence of your company's website. People would follow through and click on the link and visit the site. This drives traffic into the site resulting to great number of potential customers.

This option is very easy to enable on all of our websites and is in fact enabled by default, so if you haven't disabled it, you should have been enjoying this functionality from the get go.  As you see the pros are huge, and cons are nearly non-existant.  The only con that I could personally think of is that this takes up the real estate of your website, but the icons are so small, that this should not be an issue.  Yet still, as always Find Your Net is offering an option to turn this setting off and hide it.  We provide the tools. The choice is yours.

I received a postcard from you guys. I am not a client yet, but I am definitely considering it. I already have a website, but it does not offer much, but a little description of what we do. The appointment scheduler widget would definitely help us out. I don't usually jump into anything unless I research everything thoroughly, but this seams very straight forward and reliable. Your offer seems to good to be true, but give me a week to think about it.

Frequent Questions

What if I already have a website??

If you already have a website and are completely satisfied with its capabilities, you may want to leave it as it is. If you register with Find Your Net, you will gain a fully operational profile and you can still pick a template that will work with a sub-domain under the main domain of Find Your Net that is associated with your type of business. In other words, if you have a hair salon website at www.johndoesalon.com, and you want to maintain it, you can have a secondary website at johndoe@findyournet.com hosted by us. If you want, we can also provide you with special code for embedding of your profile into your own website as an iframe. What this means is that you can create a new page at www.johndoesalon.com, and add your own profile from findyournet.com on the website itself. Of course if you're double guessing your own website, you can always switch and host your website with us.
