Have you ever wondered how the experienced Internet Marketers Generate loads of Traffic?

Here's a two pronged approach to getting the traffic you need and find out exactly what your customers want.

Why not Combine Surveys and Polls With Pay per click.
I'm sure you already know that surveys are a great way to finding out what your target market wants but if combined with low cost, quick and easy to use Google Pay Per Click, surveys can also send lots of hungry customers to your site every month.

First of all you'll need to do some keyword research you'll need to find keywords and keyphrases that relate to your survey topic but also don't have too many Google Adword campaigns running.
You can do this very quickly with a tool like Jeff Alderson's Adword Analyzer, which will show you exactly how many Google campaigns are running for various keywords at any given time.

Second, sign up for an inexpensive survey service like Survey Monkey.
I won't recommend free survey services, for they tend to limit the number of participants, and well the whole point is to get as many people as possible to take your survey.
The next step is to design a survey that will appeal to your target market.

Next, come up with an incentive for people to take your survey,
Make it a download, so you can capture the prospect's email address.
And make it viral. Even a simple white paper can be viral.
You don't necessarily have to cram it with affiliate links just make sure your URL is visibly listed on every page now put up a simple web page that introduces people to the survey topic, offers the incentive, asks for an email address where you can send the download link and the survey results, and links to the survey.

Finally, use at least a dozen of the keywords you researched earlier to set up Google Adwords campaigns advertising your survey.
Make sure the ad uses your keyword, and that it mentions the incentive "Take this Cooking survey, get a free recipe E-book."
You don't have to be the #1 ad, you can even be on the second or third page.
The point is to capture a targeted prospect's contact information for a very small investment.
But there are also some additional serious benefits in addition to all the traffic you'll gain.
First, you'll collect valuable information on what your prospects are looking For.
Second, you'll have their permission to contact them with the survey results and the download link for the thank you gift.
And third, if you make that free gift a viral report, you'll eventually get more targeted traffic. Nice!
You can also do a variation of this with a simple one question poll.
Everything else is the same, except you'll want to come up with an intriguing question for the poll - something that will attract people's curiosity about the results and get them coming back for more and hopefully bring some friends along too.

Good luck with the future.

A Home Based Business Means Quick, Easy Money...And Pigs Will Fly

Yup, here come those wonderful flying pigs!

Where does it ever end? I've been involved with
Internet-based home businesses for several years and I
continue to be exposed to a seemingly endless barrage of
offers (all costing me money, of course) claiming to be
"the secret" for making a fantastic income, in a very short
time, and with very little effort involved.

I must admit that I may have a slightly self-serving reason
for addressing this topic. My articles are published on my
home-based business websites for the purpose of trying to
give prospective team members a true sense of what is
really involved with starting and developing a successful
home based business. The self-serving part, I suppose, is
that I want people joining my team to have the straight
scoop going in so that we don't waste each other's time. I
admit to being selfish in this regard (I don't want to
waste time working with people that have unrealistic
expectations), but it is also very efficient for both
parties involved, so it is not a totally one-way thing.

Now, back to the topic at hand. There's no magic here,
folks. Once you have selected the home business that you
are going to pursue, there are no substitutes for time and
effort in developing your business. A dream of being an
"overnight success" is just that, a dream.

I can tell you from personal experience, that once you "pay
your dues" and begin to have real success with a home based
business, it is really terrific. Think about Nirvana or
Valhalla, take your pick, but in any event it's really

When I started developing a home based business, making a
good income was obviously an objective, but I also had
other sub-objectives. One of the most important things was
to have nearly total time flexibility (I mean, if I was
willing to continue to wear the 9-5 Mon-Fri collar I could
just have just stayed in the previously "traditional" work

Time flexibility was (and still is) a "biggie" for me. Many
people working at home have the same need for various
reasons. For work at home moms, a home business can be a
real godsend to accommodate the hectic time pressures,
particularly when the kids are quite young and mom is also
spelled "transportation". In my own particular case, the
reason is not quite so noble...I just want (need?) to be
able to pick up my fly rod and go fishing at a moments
notice (sometimes I'll be gone for a week or two at a time,
but now the business has enough momentum that it keeps on
operating just as well as if I were here tending to it on a
daily basis).

Bear in mind, I am only able do the breakaway thing now
that I have put in all the up-front time and effort and now
have developed enough kinetic energy in my home-based
Internet business to be able to enjoy the fruits of my
