7Â Leading Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Website or Blog
Social networking and media is the hottest trend in 2011 and beyond. With websites like Twitter,Youtube, LinkedIn. With Facebook having over 500 million users, this is not going away anytime soon. Remember when networking you are always branding you. So whether it be Facebook or Youtube always use your real name and a good/professional or fun photo of yourself. Network with like-minded professional people. Join professional groups, networking groups, mlm groups. Post on walls and groups and fanpages, Post good valuable content. Never post links to your opportunity page while social networking (this is not professional)
Traffic Swarm is a free or paid for traffic generation or exchange network. You can put ads in a network that cycles through 10’s of thousand of people, mostly home business owners. Now much of the traffic is going to be click-throughs (people just clicking on your link to gather points) but overall some people may opt-in to your list and the extra traffic will help in the search engines.
Now Youtube was also listed under Social Networking, but I put it under its own heading because it is one of the most powerful tools in driving quality traffic to your website or blog. By quality we mean people that feel like they already know and trust you. Scam artists are less likely to put themselves â€˜out thereâ€™ like honest people. At least that would be the general consensus. Videos are definitely more personal than just text or audio. People can look into your eyes and hear your voice. Youtube is also social where you can build a following (called subscribers)and friends. They also have a PPC (pay-per-click) marketing service. also Google loves Youtube, so much that they bought it.
Article marketing is probably the most time consuming of all the recommended traffic formulas. You want the article to be 400 to 800 words and post them to your blog and a site like ezine.com. Now you want to syndicate the article through a network using software like Article Marketing Robot you can get that by clicking AMR. Writing article is going to bring value to your prospects and edify you as a leader. Writing articles is definitely worth your time!! You will not see quick results with article marketing but they are long-term effects.
TribePro is a community of people that syndicate each others content to social networking,bookmarking and media sites using â€œOnlyWireâ€ service. The 2 work hand in hand. Tribepro has free accounts but I recommend the middle paid account for aroung $40.00 per month (worth every penny) You can sign up for an account by clicking TribePro. Now you will have to get a paid onlywire account also for around $40.00 per month. For about $80.00 per month you will see the traffic to your website or blog explode!!
I will put this in the same category with list building. With list building you are collecting emails that you can then market to. You really want to get good at copy writing for this category. I suggest you to copy any emails that catch your attention and save them to a folder called copy wright. You probably heard the old sayingâ€if youâ€™re going to be a copycat copy the right catâ€ 🙂
Pay-Per-Click , the dirty word for you attraction marketers out there. Just kidding. We have many avenues for PPC. Google,Yahoo,Youtube, Facebook and now Mobile Admob; just to name a few. this can be the quickest but also the most expensive. This is where tracking your ads is important. You want to know which ads are getting the best ROI (return on investment)
These are some of the top ways I drive traffic to my blog. start implementing this today. Pick one and work it for the next 30 days or until you get good at it. If you are getting results after 30 day keep using it and add you new one for the next 30. When fishing for prospects you can never have too many lines and bait in the sea. To your success…Paul Butler
