Traffic generation is not difficult at all despite that you might be thinking exactly the opposite right now… the difficult part is converting it into sales. You can make the same money out of ten people as out of 100 when you know how to sell.
But let me tell you what traffic generation methods work, what to expect and how to implement them in your business.
I will start with the one traffic method that could possibly be considered free:
Not only is it the only free method, but it is also the one marketing strategy that will always work, at least as long as the Internet runs on content creation.
pros: free, efficient, fun, gives you authority (if your content is good), it is an asset that could always bring you revenue (as long as it is online it could)
cons: too slow, too competitive environment, can be complicated
How to do it?
I have written quite a few articles how to promote your content, this one will tell you what really works:
A couple of years ago it was all about mass submitting to the article directories, no matter what quality the articles were. It was obvious right from the start this strategy would end very quickly and not only this, but it got many marketers in trouble for backlinking their sites with crappy backlinks.
So mass submitting should be out of the equation, except if you have an authority blog and hand spin your articles so they could read perfectly. Even then you should be careful.
The best way to do Article marketing is to write an awesome piece of content and publish it on your blog first. Wait a few days for Google to index it, after that hand-spin it and publish the piece to a few of the top article directories – Ezine Articles, ArticleBase etc. When you publish it, link back to your money site.
After that use a tool for mass submission like Article Marketing Robot to blast spun articles to wherever you can. Link all those articles back to the first tier directories’ articles. The first tier directories work like a filter for you in this situation and you will not get penalized by Google.
This traffic generation strategy is pretty straight forward. You can use a tool like traffic geyser to syndicate (share) your videos to as many places as you could to try to rank them on the first page, however the real traffic from videos comes when you are entertaining…
…think about what you like to see on You tube, maybe sometimes you search for guides and stuff (which should also be entertaining), but you most often look for entertainment.
‘How to’ videos and such will also get you traffic, but don’t expect miracles. The massive traffic comes from cool videos, not from tutorials on how to use the latest boring SEO tool. People search for tutorial videos just to understand how something works and that’s it. You might get a like out of them though, or maybe a subscription that will buy some day.
Sooner or later everyone starts looking to learn optimization, cause it is awesome… though it takes a lot of time and money.
It took me three years to build my authority and start ranking with no links.
Pros: Long lasting traffic (as long as you hold your first page of Google Positions)
Cons: expensive, too slow, too complicated, constant Google algorithm changes
How to do it?
I have the full SEO promotional process as well as the four deadliest SEO tools prepared for you. I wrote them about a month ago and can assure you they are all you need to do SEO. The full SEO promotional process will work no matter what changes Google makes simply because it is concentrated around getting diversified backlinks, some other next level shit… just go take a look.
The fastest way to grow online. It takes some upfront money, but what doesn’t?
and the results you get are instant. The moment I started running Fb ads back in the day I started making money, before that it was all about submitting to bookmarking sites, building links, sharing, all kinds of promoting and no money.
Pros: fast results; simple; the fastest traffic generation strategy
How to do it?
Paid marketing is simple, you only need money and I’ve done a search for you to get to know the rest:
It is not what it used to be, you could just put up a page and post fun videos every once in a while and get thousands of likes and comments and everything… nowadays though there are millions of pages and it’s a bit more challenging to grow one… it takes a lot more work and money. Social media has always been about popularity anyway.
pros: might be fun, free, medium fast
cons: difficult to promote (the normal way), might take some time to build a name before you start getting results from social media.
