What should you do to increase traffic to your website? Has the traffic to your website become stagnant? Or worse, is it dwindling? Here we present five ways of increasing traffic to your website.
Before you try these methods, make sure that you have your website indexed by search engines. Apart from this, make your link-building activity more aggressive. Keep building back-links by leaving good comments on popular websites, particularly with “do-follow” links in comments.
1. Buy traffic for your website: Pay for targeted traffic to your website. You can do what is called “pay per click” advertising from ad networks such as Google AdWords. You pay search engines every time someone visits your by clicking your link. It gets you visitors almost instantly. However, it can be pretty expensive. This strategy can work if you are selling some good and expensive stuff.
2. Promotional emails: Send out a promotional email to the opt-in email list you should be creating by offering free reports or courses to your visitors. If you don’t have any, start working on creating an email list today.
3. Paid promotional emails: Get familiar with the popular websites in your space. If they have an email list, ask them to mail your promotional offer to their lists. You can work out a flat fee or a commission on sale.
4.Buy ad spots on popular websites: If any popular website in your niche or related area offers advertising space, you can get some exposure through paid ads, banners or links.
5. Free reports/resources: Offering high-quality freebies is a proven method of getting free traffic. You can write a free book and allow other blog/website owners to share it with their readers. You can let them put an affiliate link inside or add their name so that they have an incentive to give it away for free. A good report/freebie will spread like a virus. This concept is called “viral marketing”.
