I mentioned yesterday that I launched a new viral marketing site called ContestBurner.com where you can get a copy of my viral marketing WordPress Plugin. The plugin lets you run your very own viral contest on any WordPress blog. I’m giving away the free version of the plugin early to all the visitors who participate in the contest.
Today I wanted to share a little bit of what has happened with that brand new site as far as website traffic is concerned. Last week that website didn’t exist. As of today, Alexa shows that ContestBurner.com is among the top 40,000 websites in the world. That’s a BIG deal… and it happened in 3 days! To see what I’m talking about, head over to ContestBurner’s Alexa’s Website Traffic Page. Click on the “Traffic Stats” & then “Traffic Rank” tabs. As of right now, The site is ranked 39,570 out of all the sites in the world for today’s traffic stats. As time goes on the 1 month & 3 month numbers will catch up, but since the site didn’t exist 1 month ago… they can’t properly rank it.
In addition, I’ve picked up a TON of new inbound links, people Tweeting about the site launch & talking about it on FaceBook. If you go over and sign up, you can have this same exact thing happening on your own website. That’s why I launched ContestBurner. A viral marketing contest is an extremely affordable way to virally increase website traffic. Viral advertising campaigns can cost tens of thousands of dollars, but with ContestBurner all you need are prizes and my WordPress plugin.
