There is always plenty of advice “out there” about how to generate traffic to your website so that you can instantly maximize your income and automate your online business.
The problem is choosing one strategy from the avalanche of methods that pour into our inbox every day. So how do you know which ones will ultimately generate the highest volume and the best quality traffic?
Throughout the years, there have been two main ‘blocks’ of traffic:
- Free Traffic – this was traditionally slow and sometimes tedious, but would ultimately get results
- Paid Traffic – not everyone can pay for traffic and even when the cost involved did bring traffic it required constant monitoring to know which ads were bringing in the highest ROI.
Things have changed in recent years and there are ways to siphon high-quality traffic to any website or landing page you choose without spending a fortune on advertising or waiting a long time to see results.
By using a few FREE traffic resources you could ultimately flood your website with more traffic than ever before, instantly increasing your profits while solidifying your place as an authority in your market.
Search for forums in your niche and find conversations where you can add a helpful reply. In your forum signature, have a link to your website or article to get a backlink to your site from the forum. The better the ranking of the forum, the more valuable your backlink, but remember it must be relevant to your own content as this is one of Google’s ranking factors.
On the page where you are linking to, have a quality free offer in the niche with an optin-form to grow your marketing list.
Social Media Traffic
Social marketing is all about directly connecting with your customer base, engaging them in conversation and building relationships with your target audience. One of the easiest ways of building a customer-based marketing campaign is to take advantage of the popularity of social networks like Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter.
You can set up marketing campaigns at no cost just by creating a Facebook page for your business and connecting with potential customers. You can enhance your pages by offering discounts, special coupons and savings available only to those who join your Facebook group, like your page or connect with you in another way.
