TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC, TRAFFIC

One of the key reasons why people do not make it online and drop out half-way is the lack of traffic.

Look, if you own a retail store, you need food traffic to your store, same if you own a cafe, restaurant or any other business either online or offline.

So why should it be any different when it comes to your online business?

Traffic is NUMEBRO UNO to the success of your online business.

Here’s what traffic can do for your online business

1Generate subscribers for your list

Yes, without traffic online, no one knows that you have built a website besies your Aunt Annie or family members whom you have told. That is fine if you are building a family blog to store memories or keep in touch with relatives who are staying apart in another city or another part of the world. However, if your main aim is to create a source of income online, then you absolutely need to have your selected audience know that you exist.

2Turning visitors into paying customers

Having traffic will allow you to turn visitors to your blog or website into paying customers eventually. How many times do we visit a website or blog and make a purchase immediately? I think the chances are very slim. Having traffic and a list allows you to build a list of subscribers and build a relationship with your subscribers before they learn to trust you and view you as the Guru or expert in that field. Once you are a recognized expert in that niche, you can attract buyers literally like ‘bees to honey’.

So how do you attract traffic to your website or blog

There are several ways to attract traffic to your website

  • Write and contribute articles.

This is one of the effective ways to generate traffic to your website if you have more time than money when you are just starting out online. I have used this strategy to begin building my list online when I started.However, this method is a lot slower and you have to write copies amounts of text before you can attract a huge list. Also the articles that you have written have to be related to the niche you are in or in complementary niches in order to yield the best effect for building your list.

  • Buy Ads

If you have more cash, you can begin by buying ads such as Google Adwords, Banner ads or blog ads on related websites or blogs with a link back to your blog or website squeeze page. This allows you to build your list of subscribers and you can continue to keep in touch with them.

  • Create a video with a link to your website

Another methods that I have seen friends use very effectively is the use of video marketing. What you do is to create a series of videos, each sharing one or two tips in a related topic in your niche. You can post it on Youtube, Vidmeo and all other video submission sites to drive traffic back to your website.

  • Create Facebook post

If you have a lot of Facebook Fans, you can do a short posting announcing the start if your website. This can drive visitors to your website.

  • Create a Squidoo Page

Squidoo allows you to promote one item or product online. However if you are using this as a traffic generation method, be sure to provide lots of valuable information with a link back to your squeeze page or website for more information. By using Squidoo,you are leveraging on the high PR page rank to drive traffic to you.

These are just some of the main traffic methods to drive traffic to your website. There are tons more ranging from SEO to Pay-per-click that are not covered here.The best way to learn about traffic generation is either through the costly methods of trail-and-error or through a course by a qualified professional. This is the course that got me started generating thousands of qualified visitors in less than 24 hours.Click here for Traffic Explosion Secrets.
