quick guide to getting traffic for your internet business

Traffic is the bloodline for any internet business. There are many ways to increase traffic and many of us would prefer not to pay for it. But when it comes to driving more traffic to your website, there are several strategies that you can employ that won’t cost you a dime. However, if your business has a budget for marketing expenses, you may want to consider putting it to good use and utilize the various online paid advertising options available.

This post will show you why paid advertising is important as well as how you can also benefit from free traffic methods.

Display advertising, social media advertising, and paid search are all effective ways to attract customers and build your brand. You can adjust your paid strategies depending on your goals. But more importantly, understand why paid advertising is crucial for your internet business.

A. Ability To See Results Faster

Create a Facebook Ad which usually get approve within minutes and you will start to see results almost immediately. Yes, that is how fast paid advertising can be. Compared to free marketing efforts which can take months and sometimes years to build up an online presence and see a substantial boost in your website traffic.

When you utilize the paid advertising options available, your target audience is urged to click through to your site immediately. That means that once your ad campaign is live, you can expect to see an immediate boost in traffic to your website.

Having said that, seeing instant results does not mean that you are getting profits, you need to make sure the ROI is positive.

B. Newbie And Budget Friendly

If you are newbie and have a tight budget, don’t worry. You are sure to find a paid advertising solution that will fit your needs. With lower budget offerings, you may have less of a reach, than with a higher budget, but it will still bring a significant amount of traffic to your site. Make sure you do your research to determine the best option that will fit within your budget.

As a rule of thumb, always test with a small budget first and then scale up.

C. Almost Automated

For the most part, a majority of the paid advertising options are automated. The only thing that you will need to spend time completing is the initial setup of your campaign. After you set your campaign up, make the payments, and finalize how long it will run, the program will take over, and you can just sit back and watch the traffic flow.

But again, do check, monitor and tweak the campaign whenever required.

As you get more traffic to your site and increase your conversion rate, you can start to increase your budget and see a better return on your investment.

Moving on, it can be challenging to improve the organic traffic to your website, but when you apply the correct SEO strategies, you’ll eventually see a payoff from all your hard work. What makes search engine traffic so great is that it is both targeted and relevant.

Here are five ways that you can use to increase organic traffic to your website.

1. Optimize For Your Audience And Just For Not the Search Engines

The most important thing you can do to increase organic traffic to your site is to write for your audience, so you know exactly who you are addressing in your content. Create quality, value-added content that resonates with your targeted audience and your SEO will naturally improve. This requires you to understand the pains and characteristic of your audience and utilizing the keywords that they use in search queries. In short, you must be able to understand your audience.

2. Blog Consistently

Consistently blogging is one of the most effective ways to increase organic traffic to your site. Blogging is like racing a marathon. You’ll need to pace yourself and put out content after content. The key here is consistency. It is not just about quality content that helps your audience. You’ll also need to put up content that engages them and bring them back again and again. This will greatly improve your site ranking.

Another way is to leverage from guest blogging. Being able to secure a guest post on a reputable site can dramatically increase blog traffic to your site while helping to build your own brand. However, standards for guest blogging have changed, and spammy tactics could result in receiving stiff penalties.

3. Use Long Tail Keywords

Don’t merely use the most popular keywords in your market. You need to research on keywords that are specific to your product or service. After a time, Google and other search engines will recognize your site or blog as a destination for that particular subject. This will substantially boost your content in search rankings and allow your ideal customer to find you.

For example, in this post, I am targeting Quick Guide To Getting Traffic.

If you already have your high commercial intent keywords covered, then it’s time to target the long-tail keywords. Long-tail keywords make up a majority of web searches these days. This means that if you’re not targeting them as a part of your SEO or paid search efforts, then you’re missing out on potential traffic.

4. Get Your Meta Data Right

Your site’s meta title, URL, and description are three critical aspects for an optimized website or blog post. Your metadata is a simple but effective way to optimize your site for the search engines. However, it’s not enough to merely add a plugin; you have to work on each page separately. Always remember to change your permalinks to post names.

5. Internal Post Linking

As you build up a decent back catalog of content, you want to start linking to those pages in your blogs and throughout your website to guide your audience to more relevant content. Adding internal links can keep your visitors on your site for more extended periods, which will help to boost your search rankings. When you create and publish content on your website, be sure to look out for opportunities to place internal links. Not only does this help your SEO efforts, but it will also result in a better experience for your visitors.

Ultimately, to increase organic traffic to your site, you need to provide your customers with what they want, quality information, advice, and insight.

That’s it, this is the quick guide to getting traffic for your internet businesses.

3 Common Mistakes When Using Facebook Ads

Happy New Year to all! I hope 2017 is going to be a great year for all of us.

My last blog post was about Facebook advertising and today, I am going to share with you 3 common mistakes that are made when using Facebook Ads to promote our business.

We had learned earlier that it is not about likes, shares or comments. Instead, the focus should be on the conversion and also the ad objective. So, what else do you need to take note when setting up your Facebook Ads to promote your business?

The most common mistake is targeting the wrong group of audience.

For example, if you are selling golf clubs. Most novices would go for the audience who likes golf stars such as Tiger Woods or Jason Day, the current number 1 golfer in the world. It appears that there is nothing wrong with targeting Facebook users who like these golf stars but do they really play golf and buy golf clubs? It will be more relevant to target the audience that likes country clubs with golf courses and a much better audience could be golf coaches.

Another classic example is if you are providing tuition service, do you promote to the students or to the parents?

You will be targeting the parents instead of their children. This is because it will be the parents that are spending and sending their kids for tuition.

I hope that you are able to get my point here.

Use the Facebook Audience Insights to help you check your target audience.

The second mistake is not doing any testing at all. Some of us might think that you only need to start with one or two ads and then wait for the results. That’s not true at all. Advanced Facebook marketers will do split testing and test which image, texts, call to action and color that are the most effective, by setting up many ads and ads sets.

Testing of the image is especially important as it the most critical component of your Facebook Ads. The image is the first to attract the Facebook user’s attention and hence it can make or break your Facebook Ads campaign.

The third mistake is focusing too much on cost and it is related to the second mistake. Facebook advertising can be cheap if you had rectified the second mistake. If you only focus on the cost, you are likely to stop the promotion before you find a winning ad.

Moreover, you also need to consider the niche that you are in and the objective that you are trying to achieve. Are you aiming for traffic to bring in leads and sales or engagement such as likes, shares and comments?

Focusing on cost will affect your judgment and make you lose track of your real objective. However, you still need to aware of your budget and work with it to make sure that the ads is cost effective for your business.

This concludes the 3 common mistakes that people made when using Facebook Ads. Let’s not make these mistakes again. 🙂
