Today’s topic is a fun one, especially since traffic is the lifeblood of any online business.
Now these are a few traffic generation strategies that I personally use, however there are a TON more out there to try for yourself.
Below are a handful of traffic methods that you can start experimenting with as soon as today.
Free Traffic Methods
Perhaps one of the most underrated sources of traffic around is YouTube (video marketing). This is possibly the best way to get laser targeted traffic to your blog, website, squeeze page, affiliate offer, product page etc…especially since YouTube is continually gaining momentum every year and more and more people are using it as a search engine then ever before. Start building a YouTube presence by posting consistent and properly optimized videos every single week, and watch the traffic start rolling in.
Another excellent source of traffic is through social media platforms like Facebook. Depending on what type of business or offer you promote, this could be as simple as building quality connections/relationships with people in your niche. Create a separate page around your business and encourage people to “like” it, share it and chat about it. Once you start to position yourself as an authority, people will start messaging you asking for your services. This happens in my solo ad business on a daily basis.
Perhaps my favorite method of all is a combination of blogging and search engine optimization (SEO). This blog is a perfect example of how to generate natural, organic traffic from the search engines like Google and Bing. Once you learn the proper SEO techniques, the sky is the limit when it comes to blogging. If you’re confused on how to get a blog started, please see my post here.
1.) Solo Ads:
Probably the fastest and simplest way to get traffic to your website, squeeze page or product offer is by using solo ads. With solo ads, you are simply leveraging someone else’s email list, by purchasing traffic by the “click”. As a solo ad provider myself, I can tell you that if done correctly, this could be one of your most effective traffic generation strategies.
2.) PPC (Pay Per Click):
Although tricky for many first timers, PPC is an excellent way to drive targeted traffic to your website. Make sure you have a daily budget planned out so you do not spend more than you can afford. As in all marketing, this will take some testing and tweaking before finding the winning campaign.
Whether you want to test the waters with free traffic methods or paid traffic methods, it’s important that you actually get your feet wet with whatever strategy you choose.
Too many people never even get started due to fear of failure.
I recommend sticking with one traffic generation strategy until you master it before moving onto the next.
Once you get more experience you can combine multiple traffic sources for maximum exposure!
