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.

Getting The Most Out Of Your Solo Ads

Solo Ads is one of the easiest paid traffic methods to implement, especially if you are new to the internet business.

You do not need to learn about any new advertising platform or learn how to create a compelling ad copy or decide what are the keywords to target.

The only thing that you are required to do is to research for the solo ads vendor.

All you have to do next is to contact the seller and make a payment. Of course, you MUST provide him with your website URL that you wish to promote.

Solo ads is most effective for promoting squeeze pages. Please do not buy solo ads to promote your content blog!

But take note, as this is an online world, the truth is that, there are scammers out there. So be careful 😛

Today, let me guide you through some basic steps to get the most of your solo ads investment.

As I am in the make money online industry, the steps below are with reference to this industry. If you are in other niche, the same rules and steps apply too.

Below is the basic guide for you to follow before you buy a solo ads.

1. Basic Rules

– Expensive solo ads doesn’t mean it is quality

– It is not necessary to buy 100% tier 1 traffic, at least 80% tier 1 traffic is good enough

– Buy at most 100 clicks at one time when you are first starting out

– Do not be enticed by the seller’s massive discount when he offered you more clicks

– You must always test the seller first before buying more clicks from the same seller again

– If the clicks are too cheap, then they are too good to be truth

Always remember these basic rules so that you can maxmise the use of your budget.

2. Do Your Research

– Make sure the vendor is in the same niche as you are in

– Check the latest testimonials before you buy solo ads from the vendor

– Make sure they have some testimonials with sales

– Check out for any negative feedback

For internet marketing niche, you can search for “Solo ads Testimonials” on Facebook and you will come across many groups.

Request to join a few of them.

Next, check out their posts after your request to join the groups has been approved.

Select one solo ads seller that you are interested in.

Use the search function and look for the rest of the posts with the name of vendor to see if the vendor has any other feedback.

When you are checking out the testimonials, do take note if there is any sales. You should also try to cross check the buyer of the solo ads on the same group to see if he buys from any other sellers.

If the same pair of seller and buyer keep appearing but without having any other different seller or buyer…

WARNING: They might be fake testimonials.

So you’ll need to do your due diligence to research on the vendor. It should not take you more than 30 minutes to do this.

Repeat the process everything you are looking for a new solo ads vendor.

3. Shortlist A Few Solo Ads Vendor And Contact Them

If you are not sure if they are in your niche, please ask them.

When you are interested to make a purchase, check out the price first.

Tell them that you are new to solo ads and ask them if it is possible to give you a discount.

If you are agreeable to the price, then the vendor will provide you with steps to make the payment. Most of them use PayPal to collect payment.

Also ask them when they will deliver the clicks. Usually, they will inform you when you can expect to receive the clicks.

After that, please provide them with your website URL so that the vendor can send to his list to drive traffic to your website.

4. Receive Your Clicks

After you have received the clicks, most vendors will provide you with the traffic report.

Now, you’ll need to check certain statistics about this report.

Check the unique number of clicks received and the quality of the traffic. How many percent is tier 1 traffic?

Make sure that the numbers tally with what you have purchased.

Scan through the report to check the IP of the traffic sources. If there is an IP address that consistently keep popping up.

Contact the vendor and ask why.

Next, you should also check the number of subscribers that just joined you and if there is any sales.

If you are interested to get your own tracking software, check this out: http://ClickASAP.com

We use this service for tracking clicks and many solo ads vendors use this too.

5. Read The Statistics

Check the optin rate which is the number of new subscribers divided by total number of unique clicks/visitors.

If the percentage is ridiculously low such as less than 10%, you might want to ask the vendor.

A typical internet marketing squeeze page performs at, at least 30% optin rate.

Next, you should check out the number of sales. If there are sales and you earn commission, then you might have a profitable solo ads campaign which earns you free subscribers and commission.

Here you have it. A simple guide for you to follow to get the most out of your solo ads investment.

I hope this helps you.

Best Of Both Worlds – Free Traffic VS Paid Traffic

Traffic is the main fuel for running your online business. Without traffic, your business will not be able to move forward and generate revenue.  There is mainly 2 main categories of traffic – Paid Traffic and Free Traffic.

I always encourage our students to master one paid traffic method and one free traffic method. Hence, you will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds. Please also note that the traffic methods are also dependent on the niche of your business. Different niche has a different reliable source of traffic.

In general, paid traffic means using money to get the traffic while free traffic means that you are required to do some “work” to drive the traffic.

Why do we encourage using both types of traffic? This is because for most of the time, paid traffic will be able to provide you with instant result. On the online world, speed is very crucial to your success. You’ll want to be able to test, tweak and maximize your website conversion as fast as possible. The result may be positive or negative but it allows you further fine-tune your website.  Free traffic tends to be slower and you may not be able to see the result immediately.  However, as you build up your free traffic, it will grow in momentum and continues to brings you traffic even when you stop doing activities that brings in the traffic. On the other hand, your paid traffic strategy will not work once you stop investing in it.

Here are some of the ways that you can get your traffic.

Free Traffic

  1. Social Media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
  2. Forums
  3. Blogs
  4. Videos
  5. Basic SEO

Paid Traffic

  1. Per Per Click such as Google Adwords and Microsoft Bing Ads
  2. Social Media Ads such as Facebook Ads and Twitter Ads
  3. Banner Ads
  4. Emails Ads
  5. Native Ads

Now, let’s get going and get some traffic!
