I love writing about traffic, but not because it’s the most important part of this business, it is actually the easy part like I told you the other day, but because I know you love reading articles how to get traffic… and I love writing about what you love.
You gotta say the title is something else, a?
I love it too… which reminds me even Spock said it was all about the title.
Titles are important, though these surprising ways to get traffic are more refreshing than new socks, I can’t wait to tell you about them, so let’s start right away.
1 Leverage the power of content generators
like a blog topic generator, or a title generator or any kind of idea generator that people can use… maybe a tweet generator, anything.
I regularly use them and although they run out of ideas pretty fast (since they are usually only programmed a certain number of results, some get updates), they are still a killer way to get free traffic… lot’s of free traffic, and not just new visitors but returning such too.
2 Interview famous people
I know a guy who does nothing else online, but interview people and he’s pretty huge.
He’s made some reality site, or whatever it is (haven’t really had much time to browse it) and only posts interviews with popular marketers for traffic… the site is pretty new and already has loads of traffic, not to mention interviews are a lot easier than constantly creating content yourself.
Some of his podcasts rank pretty well on itunes too and he gets tons of fresh traffic daily, as people love listening to podcasts while driving, or whatever they are doing.
You can just turn them into articles if you don’t like talking, I prefer reading articles than listening to podcasts and watching videos, you’d win me if you posted an article interview.
3 Publish on Amazon
Publish a 50 page book and link to wherever you want in the description.
You can giveaway the book if it’s nothing special, or charge a dew bucks and make money too.
The more books you write and publish, the more traffic you will get.
You can do the same with Ebay, you can publish your book there too.
A 50 page book takes about a week, and if you make it a business quotes book or anything like that, you can make it even faster and it will probably sell better too, as people love this type of stuff – the type that doesn’t require any thinking whatsoever, yet at the same time is pretty entertaining.
4 Post gif pic ads on Craigslist
Craigslist is a beast if you know how to treat it properly.
When I started online I only used Craigslist to sell, I had no site, no money, no credibility, nothing, and I knew the fastest way to start making sales was leveraging an already popular site’s traffic.
I posted a gif pic of a van man cooking outside of his van with a huge blinking sign saying something like: “from a van man to being rich online, click here to see how you can do it too” in the jobs section, which led to a capture page and then after optin to a sales video.
You’d be shocked by the awesome results I got: every 20th person bought right off the video. Of course I knew how to write great copy, but the results were mainly because Craigslist has tons of free traffic waiting for you.
It’s a lot of work and people looking for jobs are not that great traffic, but if you want free traffic and fast sales, you can try it out.
You need a few phone numbers to be able to post since some of your ads will get ghosted and you will need a few accounts, you can search the internet, there are a lot of phone number services out there.
I don’t feel like explaining how the whole thing works, as you’ll be better off learning as you go.
You can enter your email in the form to your right and learn how to write copy that sells though, as this is what matters the most.
I used only one title and it worked like magic:
It just makes you click and after you use the form to your right you will see why.
5 post on forums
LOL You know I’d never advise you to do something useless, forum posting is for suckers, there are way better things to do to get traffic like:
5 Guest blogging
Guest posting is the real deal, it is nothing special and doesn’t need any serious explaining, just search out some of the blogs that accept guest authors and go for it.
You might get a few rejects, but who cares, it’s a part of the game and nothing to worry about.
To be honest, I don’t like doing it, I’ve been invited by a few of the big dogs like Semrush quite a few times, but never accepted their offers, it doesn’t matter what I like, really… it is one of the most effective traffic strategies and I think everybody should do it instead of wasting time on forums or trying to reach out for links and crap like that.
6 Create a free guide
Nothing beats free, create a free traffic guide (or any type of guide, maybe a guide how to motivate yourself, anything like that), put up a nice clean page, run some cheap Fb ads until it gets going, ask people to share your page to get the guide and bam – you will get hoards of traffic.
There, now you have a few more refreshing than new socks ways to get traffic.
I’ll end right here as it is a lovely day out there and I’m thinking of going out shopping for a new car… you know, to kill time LOL.
Let me know if you liked this article and stay awesome.
I buy expensive shit… you know, to kill time LOL
