Consider this your beginner manual for boosting traffic and creating a successful business.
Two words best describe traffic: free and paid.
Paying for your traffic, in my opinion, includes all forms of PPC (pay-per-click), ezine advertising, offline advertising, and paid directory submissions.
I also view any endeavor that demands your time as paid advertising.
After all, time is money in the corporate world.
Paid marketing isn’t all awful.
Simply put, it indicates that you are paying for traffic.
Although free traffic is more difficult to obtain, it is also completely free.
The majority of free traffic comes from users discovering your website on search engines.
In the previous post, we discussed employing content as your ultimate search engine ranking booster.
Here are a few strategies for boosting traffic.
Some are alternatives for paid advertising, while others are completely free.
Create articles, then send them to a number of specialized websites.
It can take a while to manually submit articles to numerous websites.
All of my laborious work is done through a submission service.
Participate in forums.
You won’t be able to advertise your goods or services on many forums.
That makes perfect sense.
Finding a fantastic forum where you can participate is what I advise doing.
Give individuals excellent, thorough responses when they ask questions.
Not for sale.
You can post your website in your signature on almost all boards.
Use this opportunity.
Submit your website’s individual pages to all major search engines.
Every time you make an update to a page, make sure to submit it to all of the main search engines as well.
Use this one with caution.
Each engine has very detailed guidelines and submission restrictions.
Make sure not to spam!
Page submissions should follow each engine’s rules.
Additionally, I employ a submission service that takes care of this for me at no extra charge.
Form partnerships with websites that aren’t competitors.
Partner with a business that enhances your offering.
Make sure the partnership benefits you, the partner business, and your clients.
Joint ventures can be difficult to organize and accomplish, but if done correctly, they are well worth it.
Investigate PPC, web advertising, and/or ezine advertising.
Each technique requires a one-time investment and learning time, but they can all increase traffic.
Personally, I find this way of increasing traffic to be “iffy” at best, hence I do not favor it.
Put the name of your website in bold on every business correspondence.
Not only is this work easy, but it is also easy to complete.
Add it to your letterhead, business cards, forum signatures, and email signature.
Establish a culture of exceptional customer service.
This always results in recommendations from current customers.
More recommendations equal more traffic!
The truth is that without traffic, your website would be lost in the abyss.
Your services and content are not being used.
Any business depends on traffic, and as a general rule, more traffic equals more revenue.
I’ve reached my last and most important point regarding traffic now.
You need to be aware of particular once you establish a good flow of visitors.
From where did those guests arrive? What led them to you?
Which of your website’s pages are the most popular?
Which page of your website did they first access?
Which page of your website did they leave?
Which search terms did they use to locate you?
You must be completely familiar with your visitor!
Although traffic analysis and search engine submissions can take a lot of time, your hosting provider ought to be offering the majority of these services at no cost to you.
A limited number of people do this, but it is well worth looking into.
