In today’s online marketing climate, it’s getting harder and harder to make a buck online. Many people work hard everyday just to see their efforts produce nothing for them. Why is this? Well, my idea is that they’re doing all the wrong kind of marketing techniques. And in particular… they don’t know how to get a lot of traffic to their website.
Getting traffic is a mystical thing to comprehend. Sure there are countless amounts of ways to get traffic to your website, but only a handful of these traffic methods will bring you the most results. I would know… I’ve been around the internet marketing scene for the last 10 years and I know for a fact that traffic can be easy if you know what to do.
In today’s lesson, I want to share with you some of my favorite traffic methods that I like to use to get loads of people to my website everyday. These are things that you will want to do in your internet business also. In fact, let’s get straight to the heart of the matter and talk about some traffic methods that you should use. Here’s the first traffic method that I like to do:
1) YouTube marketing
I love YouTube. I go there about 5 times a week just to watch some of my favorite videos, and to watch the new videos that come out also from the people that I am subscribed to. But guess what? YOU TOO can go on YouTube and build up subscribers and create your own fan base.
This is an awesome way to get traffic back to your website. If you can strive to make your videos around 10 minutes long, this is a good thing. People tend to like videos that are relatively long and that has a lot of information inside it. One of the biggest things that you should do is to buy a camcorder and record yourself speaking in front of the camera.
Sure there are some people who create videos that have on-screen demonstrations, but nothing is better than a real live video of yourself speaking or interviewing someone in front of the camera. YouTube is just one of my favorite ways to get traffic. Here’s another one of my favorite ways also:
2) Blog commenting
I like this strategy a lot. You can reach a lot of people and build up your credibility at the same time, all while getting people to click on your link that leads back to your website. Plus, you get a relevant 1-way link back to your website too. Finding a blog to comment on isn’t hard to do. Simply do a Google search for blogs in your niche.
Or, you can visit the blog directories and find blogs in your niche that are active and that would be good candidates to post comments on. Make it a point to comment on blogs often, because they can be a great way to drive traffic back to your site. The more high traffic blogs you find, the better.
These 2 traffic techniques are things that I use in my online business everyday. It doesn’t matter what niche you’re in or what you sell… you can easily generate traffic to your site without using advertising whatsoever. Now if you plan to use advertising, make sure you’re getting customers and that you continue to sell to them via backend marketing. But first, just start with getting the traffic.
