You started with an idea for an online business – created an impressive looking website – but the people are not coming to visit.
Getting traffic to your site could be a very expensive venture, if not done right. So I’ve put together ‘5 Tips’ on how to get more people/traffic to your website – even if you have a small budget.
- Free Content:
You’ve probably heard of article marketing. This is where you place free content on the internet for anyone to access. Make sure that the content is HIGH in quality, as you want to connect with people and look like an authority in what you are writing about – then you can redirect them back to your website via a link.
- Social Media Marketing:
This is a great way to get your content out there, and a great way to attract more people. But don’t mistake ‘likes’ with a sale. Sure, it’s nice to get a whole lot of likes and followers but in the end it’s about selling! Again, sharing great content and striking photos help with getting people’s attention – but always link back to your website.
- Search Engine Optimization – SEO
A proper SEO strategy with definitely get your website in front of your targeted market – but it does take time and depending on your selected market and keywords you are targeting could prove costly. So look for the ‘low hanging fruit’ when it comes to keywords. Go with long-tail keywords with low competition and a good amount of searches per month.
Personally one of my favorites – and that of most internet marketers. Google ads… Bing Ads… Facebook Ads just to name a few. For a couple of dollars a day you can get your website in front of highly-targeted people looking for your product or service. You can also do a 15-30 sec video and upload to YouTube related to your audience. With proper tracking you can check which one is performing best for you – bring you the best ROI.
This is also HUGE with many internet marketers… considering you have your own product. You offer your product to others (affiliates) to promote/advertise your product for you – and they earn a commission – usually between 50-100%. This is a great, low-risk way to advertise with no initial investment up front.
