There are two ways to drive traffic, you can create it or you can buy it. In this blog post I want to talk about creating free traffic as to be frank I’ve never managed to make paid traffic work for me.
If you do things right you can receive all the traffic your websites can handle and it needn’t cost you one cent. Here’s some recent traffic stats from my latest product launch, as you can see it’s going very well.
So why do so many people fail at driving a significant amount of traffic to their websites?
The first mistake a lot of people make is they think there is some big traffic secret they haven’t discovered yet. Some loophole that will enable them to drive tons of visitors without lifting a finger, and this is what they look for, some automated system that will end their traffic problems. Let me tell you that no matter what you see or hear no such system or loophole exists, if you want to drive any real amount of traffic for free it’s going to take some work, and this is where things start to go wrong.
Do you know that most of the methods I use to drive traffic work extremely well and always have done. Methods such as:-
- Blogging (I’m doing it right now)
- Forum Marketing
- Guest Blogging
- Social Networking
- Integration Marketing
- Ad Swaps
These are all methods I use a lot and they work very well, but then most people know these methods work. Yet so many people don’t implement them because it takes work and they are looking for a traffic loophole where they don’t have to work.
You need to realize if you want to drive free traffic it’s going to take effort on your behalf. If you get this then you are halfway there, however, just driving traffic is not enough, what about when the visitor reaches your website?
Again, this is where a lot of people fail, if you create a blog full of garbage content and affiliate links what happens? The visitor leaves within seconds never to return. Or if you create a sales page that looks like it was put together in half an hour what happens? The visitor leaves within seconds never to return.
This is why you must put 100% effort into everything you create, you want to leave the visitor wanting more, if they want more they will opt-in to your mailing list or buy your product. Then you can generate repeat traffic.
Let me ask you, have you been to this blog before? The chances are you have and if you have you should get what I’m talking about.
So let me leave you with this. Firstly, getting traffic isn’t hard, as long as you understand getting traffic takes work and getting repeat visitors takes work you will be fine. If you are not prepared to work then you may as well forget it. Secondly, when a visitor hits your site they must have a positive experience. Give them anything less and they will probably leave never to return.
Ok John, I get that and I am prepared to put some work in, what’s next?
