How to Do Internet Marketing the Right Way
I know a lot of people that have created a website only to see it fail, or barely generate any traffic no matter how much work they put into it. There is a lot that goes into a proper internet marketing campaign and finding the right solution can either be timely or very cost inefficient. A few months back I introduced my brother in law to Google analytics so he could see what kind of traffic he was getting to his site. He thought it was the coolest thing ever, not only could he see how many people but also from where. This is a great tool to help you aim at a particular target audience and to see if you are hiring that mark.
I guess I should not have shown him that site because after using it for the past three months he's noticed that his site is only getting a couple dozen visitors a week. I'm sure that would be fine for some people but he was trying to run a business. Not knowing much about getting traffic to his site he asked me what I would suggest. I proceeded to inform him about the types of internet marketing solutions out there and what he could do to get more traffic to his site. I realize some people see this as a ventre worth exploring while others find it best to leave to the professionals. Personally I think it all depends on the amount of traffic and type of traffic you are trying to get. I think anyone with a brain and about 10 hours a week to spend can increase their traffic flow, but getting your targeted audience to show up; you know the people who will actually want to buy your product. Now that is the challenge that might be worth investing in a professional for.
Honestly, I do not know who would care if 5,000 people went to their site everyday if none of them were interested in the product. In fact that would probably bother me since their using up my bandwidth and have no interest in the product or the company. So I guess I'm writing this article to help convey a message that I firmly believe in, if you need to generate more traffic to your site and do not have a great deal of time to dedicate to learning and executing the proper methods just hire someone to do it for you.
