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.
