Connect With Your Visitors
Connecting with your visitors is key. If you can build a real relationship with the people you’re serving, you’ll get both links and traffic.
You’ll also start to become better and better known in your market. If you treat your market as just a “target market” to market to, you will get some traffic and sales. However, if you treat your market like you’re talking to real people, then you’ll actually start to build trust and a reputation in your industry.
That’s when your site will start moving away from small-time internet website to a real business.
It Doesn’t Pay to Cut Corners
There are many, many marketers who’ve been trying to cut corners for years. They’ve started website after website trying the latest blackhat techniques to no avail.
Sure, you may make a few bucks here and there by cutting corners. But in the long run, you will spend far more effort cutting corners than if you just built an asset with real value right from the beginning.
Website Traffic Tips
It’s time to demystify getting traffic. The reality is, it’s not as hard as you think. It does take work – But it’s not difficult work. How do you drive traffic to your website consistently? Here are several proven traffic sources and methods to help you consistently bring people to your website.
A Content-Filled Newsletter
You’ve probably heard the expression “the money is in the list.” This is SO true. Website owners who put off building their list until sometime “later” are majorly missing out.
The time to start building your list is now.
The attitude you should take with your newsletter is to build your following or audience. The attitude shouldn’t be one of trying to SELL them.
A 90% content to 10% sales ratio is about the maximum amount of selling you should do. Remember: The goal is to build an audience over the long run, not to try and make as many short term sales as possible while burning out your audience.
Leverage High Quality Content
High quality content is what will bring you the most traffic over time. To build a business successfully means to have high quality content that people want to come back to and send to their friends.
