Welcome To The Selling Lounge!

We are a friendly forum where sellers help sellers to help our/your online E-Commerce Business grow by having a place of resources and support along with help in promoting ourselves and each other.

I have been selling on line since 2003 in which I started out with eBay where I was doing very well as a Powerseller until all the fee hikes and changes. I then opened up my first Website almost 2 years ago and have been a member of a few very nice informative E-Commerce Forums and have learned so much about this new world of online selling that I wanted to have all my information in one place to help me succeed and by doing that helping others at the same time.

I have noticed that there is a ton of information out there on the net to help us become successful business owners and there are certain things that we must do in order to get our products out there and noticed and to get the buyers to us.

So I'm hoping that we can all share with each other "our tips" of "what works" and "what does not work".

What is Linkreferral

The Linkreferral Concept

We are striving to provide an affordable alternative to search engines and banner ad campaigns which give mediocre results. Our four pronged approach to developing free traffic for our members is described below,

Members directory traffic - By joining, you will be included in our members directory which is visited by our community of over 200,000 members, and thousands of outside visitors on a daily basis. You'll have the opportunity to earn a ranking at the top of your category, absolutely free! Receive valuable feedback from visitors of your website, network with your peers, and give your opinion on other websites in the directory. The more you participate, the more you get in return! (more details)

Referral based traffic - You are probably familiar with the concept of network marketing, well this is a free version of that marketing method - by registering and promoting your linkreferral affiliate link, an exponential growth of 5 levels of referrals can be created (ex. you refer 10 people who refer 10 people each who refer 10 each....), potentially 10,000s of visitors/day all viewing your link prominently in the top spot of our 'Featured Sites' section on our home page for your referral ID. It works because its free, fast to register, easy to implement and no risk. People that are referred from your site will have nothing to lose and everything to gain, just like you. (more details)

Search engine traffic - By registering, you'll benefit several ways, including,

1) having your webpage listing indexed more quickly - the major search engines continuously spider our site, and the sites listed in our directory.
2) Improved search engine rankings and SEO optimization.
3) Indirect search engine traffic via Pages such as your directory listing and your affiliate page listing feature your link and description, are picked up by all the major search engines. Your sign-up description, combined with our strong traffic base (a prime ranking factor for most major search engines) can pull in a significant immediate steady stream of traffic to your listing on and then on to your web site.

Linkreferral forums traffic - By participating in our forums on a daily basis, you'll build relationships and your reputation within the linkreferral community and improve the odds of successfully converting visitors to your end goal.

Referral Based Traffic - Getting the Referral Process Going

LinkReferral provides two great ways to get traffic to your site, ranking high in our member's site directory, and our multi-level marketing referral program, which is a hands off method to see increased traffic month after month. With that said, most people, given the choice, would like to see an overload of traffic to their site NOW.

To do this, instead of just passively waiting for traffic to build through the linkreferral link placed on your site, here are a few proactive ways to get the ball rolling more quickly.

1. Promotion on Your Site - Besides just placing the LinkReferral link on your site, a little promotion and explanation of what LinkReferral is may encourage more people to click through to see what it's all about.

2. Promotion on Other Sites (blogs, other traffic sites, etc...) - List your linkreferral link, id)

on other free advertising type sites where a large percentage of the people are looking for new avenues such as for free advertising. This will allow you to create a large first level referral base, and expose these people and all their referrals to your website once they hit the homepage.

3. E-Mail
- You may have noticed the form letter during the sign up process allowing you to send ten people an endorsement of the site. It provides them a link with your ID number attached so their membership would be under you should they choose to join. A personal e-mail from you to your associates describing how the program works and your belief in it, will see even better results. Use good judgement. DO NOT SPAM (sending mass e-mails to people you have not had prior contact with). It generally doesn't work and will be in vain as we will shut down your account...

4. E-Mail Signature - A passive way to take advantage of your email is to set an email signature, where you set an appropriate one line message and linkreferral link id)

at the bottom of all your email messages. Check with your email documentation (MS outlook, eudora, hotmail, etc..) on how to set an email signature.

Any method you use to get your first 10 people to join is 90% of the battle. The faster this happens the faster they get people on board for themselves and thus helping you promote your site. Good Luck!!
