Run a Contest and List them in These Places

One of the proven ways to get more traffic to your site is by running a contest.  If you haven't run a contest before - what's stopping you?  It is easy to do and you will be surprised how you will literally gain thousands of new visitors. 

You don't need to do anything elaborate.  It can be as simple as a small prize from the products you sell.  It is proven that those offering a small prize can receive just as much traffic as those offering a large group of prizes. 

There are a large number of people on the internet who spend the

 

majority of their time entering sweepstakes and contests - and they enter them all. 

Instead of running a contest on your own site, we offer a twist on gaining exposure for your website and business by utilizing contests on other people’s websites.  If you do not feel that you have the time or resources to put together a contest for your website, or if you do not currently have a website, become a contest sponsor for someone else.

Running contests on your site is a wonderful idea, but can be very time consuming.  Think about all the time you will save by not having to coordinate the contest, answering all the emails from those confused on

 

 

how to enter your contest, and going through all the entry forms.  Instead, find a contest offered by a site that is your target market and offer them a prize from you for their contest.   You can gain quite a bit of exposure and traffic if you are careful in choosing the right contests to sponsor. 

A great type of contest to sponsor is a scavenger hunt where the contestants must go to your site to find a graphic that you have hidden.  After the contestants register they are brought to the page with all the sponsors, their links to their websites and the clues to find the graphic.  When we have run these types of contests in the past, we have people who have received more than 1000 new visitors within the first week or two.  We have also had many of the sponsors of these types of sites receive new sales from contestants who have happened onto their site via the scavenger hunt.

Another contest, ideal to sponsor, is one that will list you as the sponsor in their ezine along with on their website.  Most sites these days offer ezines to their visitors and will run a contest for their ezine subscribers.   Again, great exposure for you, all for just offering a prize.

Finally, another type of contest would be those which require the contestants to answer a question each day in where they need to visit one of the sponsors sites. The sponsors are rotated throughout the month for the question of the day.  Each contestant must visit the featured sponsor site of the day in order to answer the question.  This again brings more traffic to your site.

How do you find contests that need sponsors?  Besides word of mouth, you can approach sites that run contests and ask if they are looking for sponsors.  Most sites are happy to get more sponsors.  You can also list yourself and see who is looking for sponsors in our Forums area.  This is to help connect webmasters and sponsors in order to help them both build traffic to their sites.

Take advantage of the free exposure offered to you by simply providing your products or services as a prize.  Your name will consistently be out in front of potential customers and your traffic will steadily increase without the time and work of running a contest yourself.

Below is a list of sites we suggest you use to list your contest.  Be sure to follow their instructions on how to list.  Some will requires a link back to their site in exchange for listing your contest.
