#2) You need to make a YouTube channel.
A YouTube channel is one of the best ways to get traffic because you can reach a huge audience. It’s very easy to make content for a YouTube channel. You just get your camera from your smartphone, you can have a green screen set up if you want to do it very professionally, you can have a crew, you can do it all by yourself, you can do screen captures if you want to do more of a presentation style. A YouTube channel is one of the best ways to get tons of traffic and YouTube is the third largest website in the world. Video is really taking over. It’s the future of traffic and it’s growing year after year.
The best way to make a successful YouTube channel is to follow the points in this course: YouTube Secrets Here you see exactly how to set up your YouTube channel to achieve maximum views and engagement and how roughly 30 minutes a week is all it takes to make serious cash and drive traffic from youtube. A YouTube channel is one of the absolute best ways to get traffic especially for a younger demographic.
#3) Build a social media presence.
Facebook has over a billion users, Twitter has hundreds and hundreds of millions of users, there are hundreds of millions of users on Instagram and some of the others like Pinterest. You need to have a social media presence if you want your business to thrive. If you want to get the best info from the best experts then go to this blog social media examiner. It’s a great blog about the latest social media tactics, what experts are saying in social media, what the trends are for the future of social media, what the best tools to use are etc. Social media examiner is one of those top resources you can go to whenever you have social media questions. A social media presence is one of the best ways to get traffic, build a brand and show people who’s the person behind your brand and just connect with your audience on a whole new level.
#4) Consider starting a podcast.
A podcast is basically your own little radio show that you can start. There are many successful podcasts now. From celebrities to businesses to personal development strategist. It can get you a ton of traffic.
#5) Repurpose content.
There’s no point in just making one piece of content with a lot of great stuff in it and then just leaving that as the only version of it. You can really reach a whole new group of people if you just repurpose it and recycle it. If you make a really good blog post and that’s your main source of traffic you can take a blog post and you can turn it into alternative posts. Post them on LinkedIn, post them on forums, you can post them on Hubpages you can repurpose them into sections so you can create individual social media posts from different points that you make in that blog post, you can turn a blog post into a YouTube video and share that video on multiple sites like Vimeo and Dailymotion, you can turn into a podcast episode or turn it into multiple podcast episodes, you can turn it into SlideShare presentations where you turn it into a slideshow. Consider repurposing your content into many different forms to get the most traffic.
#6) You need to advertise on Facebook.
Advertising on Facebook is cheaper than Google AdWords and it has more targeting options than Bing. You create a Facebook page, get the traffic through sponsored post or right column ads or writing to your audience. The best way to get started in Facebook marketing is going to a page like Facebook Blueprint. With more than 90 eLearning courses, Facebook Blueprint helps you learn the skills. These are free, five-minute lessons. You can go through them and figure out how to target the best people for your Facebook ads. They go over location, demographics like age, gender, they do language and interest targeting. You can target things like peoples occupations or what the kind of magazines they read. There are some pretty specific tricks that you can do to save money and get the most value per click from Facebook. Learn a little bit before you start with Facebook Ads. I recommend Facebook advertising if you’re looking to do any kind of advertising. If you’re on a budget you don’t have to do paid ads. You can do very well with content marketing. But Facebook ads can be very worthwhile if you do them correctly.
#7) You can collect emails.
This is something you have to do in today’s world. If you’re running a business, you have to collect emails. Especially if you have any kind of website. This is how you get people to return to your website and how you get people to see your product, your offers multiple times so that they can really understand why they should make a buying decision. People are usually not going to buy the first time they see your business. They have to see it about five, six, seven times before they make a buying decision and people tend to do the research. So you need to collect their email when they first come to your site so that you don’t have to worry about being out of sight, out of mind. You can focus on giving them value, giving them blog posts and YouTube videos and things that teach them something, that shows them why you know what you’re talking about, why your business works and how it improves their quality of life. And then, of course, you can send them to sales pages from these emails. It’s the best way to market overall and the return on investment is amazing from email marketing.

#8 You can get traffic from answering questions on Quora.
Quora is a place where you answer questions for people. But you can link to resources after answering the question. If you give people very high-quality answers to their questions and if they want to get more elaboration on the topic you can let them know if they want to see even more on this topic they can go to this website or this page or this blog post or this video and you can link to it in the answer to these questions. Hundreds and thousands of people see each question and a percentage of them will click your link if your answer is good. It’s a great way to get extra (free) traffic from just another type of resource. Quora is a great way to help people and get more traffic.
# 9 You can publish E-books on Amazon or Clickbank.
Publish a e-book and point the visitors back to your brand, your YouTube channel, your website or your social media profiles. This way you can get their emails, you can collect their information, you can get more followers, you can get more visitors to your blog and your channel. All through Amazon books or Clickbank. And if your books are good you’ll notice that bestsellers tend to have very popular blogs as well. Look at somebody like Tim Ferriss. He wrote the 4-hour workweek, Look how popular his blog is. He just gets so much traffic because people know him through his podcast and through his books and he references his websites through his books by having resources on his website related to the material in his books. This is a great way to get more traffic by writing a very well-done book, publish it on Amazon and as people read your book you can reference different additional resources on your website.
Now I know what you think… publishing on Amazon and creating my own e-book? I can’t do that! Creating your own product isn’t as hard as it sounds. It can be easy if you put in the work.
