Document Sharing: Another Easy Way to Get Traffic to Your Website

Scribd.jpg

This is the third article in our series which shows you easy ways to get traffic to your website.

I love document sharing; I don’t do it as often as I should.

Here’s how it works. You create PDFs of your content (articles, reports, ebooks) and upload them to the document sharing sites. There’s a social aspect to this; think of it as YouTube for documents. People can subscribe to your uploads, and add comments.

Popular document sharing sites include:

Scribd

DocShare

You’ll get the most value from document sharing if you look at it from the point of view of your readers. Offer genuine value in your documents.

For example, I’ve just started offering free reports. My aim with these reports is to offer real value. I’m creating the reports based on what my clients and writing students need to know.

I want each reader to get at least one practical nugget of information from each report that they can use right away. I could create reports more quickly, just by repurposing articles, and while I’ll do that in the future, at the moment, I want to offer unique content.

Visit both the above sites, and join. Check out the Terms of Service, and follow them to the letter. Aim to provide great content, which is truly valuable, and you can’t go wrong.
