3 Tips For Gaining Traffic
Traffic is an important aspect of any type of website, especially for Internet marketers. No traffic means zero potential clients, sales, or visitors in general which leads zero profit. There are many different methods for gaining traffic, but below I've listed my favorite three methods for doing so.
Method # 1: YouTube
YouTube is one of the most populated websites out there. If you create good quality, helpful videos you're sure to get a few subscribers and followers. Of course, those subscribers will be interested in your stuff so they will be sure to check out your site and potentially sign up if the squeeze page is looking good.
Method # 2: Social Media
Facebook and Twitter are the most popular social media sites you can advertise on. Be sure to post to relevant pages, quality tweets, and do not spam. If you look like a spammer, most people will not even think to click on your site. Work smart and get them interested in what your email list has to offer.
Method # 3: Forums
Forums are another good way for getting traffic, as long as you post relevant posts and follow the rules. Most sites require you to have quite a few posts before they allow any sort of advertising in your signature (this is especially true for the Internet Marketing and Weight Loss niches), so get into the mind set that forums are for long-term and take your time building up reputation in order to get the most out of that forum.
As said, traffic is vital, yet that is not the only variable of a successful sale. A good sales or welcome page is also necessary for converting traffic into sales. If you have a bad squeeze page, odds are people will close the page as soon as they see it. If you are using a WordPress-based website, then I'd recommend checking out lead Rocket. Lead Rocket is a set of several well-designed squeeze pages that are sure to convert your traffic. It is simply installed as a plug-in to your website and very easy to navigate. If you're interested, I highly recommend looking into it, but if you're good at building squeeze pages then just focus on gaining that traffic.
Lead Rocket will also target the right audience for your business. Demographics are an important part of any advertising campaign, as it's a good idea to know who you are advertising to so that your conversions will be top notch.
