The key to high traffic volume is getting your name and website address out there. You want it noticed by as many people as possible, in as many places as possible.
Some, but not all of these methods may be right for your business. Some of these methods may have limited use. Do not limit yourself only to what you see in this book. If you have an idea about how to generate traffic to your website, give it a try and see what happens. You may just strike gold in a place you otherwise would not have expected.
Make sure you take a good look at your website. There’s no point in driving traffic to it if you are not completely clear about what you want visitors to once they get there.
As you evaluate your website, look at the following:
- Is your design eye-catching, but not to the point where it is distracting?
- Is the website easily navigable?
- Do all links work?
- Is your copy tailored to your target audience? Will it convince themto do what you want them to do?
Do not rely on a single method or a combination of any of these methods listed here as your only marketing efforts. Use these tactics as part of your overall marketing strategy and campaign. Do everything you can to spread the word, and you’ll see traffic grow.
Of course while we all want to go viral, there is never a guarantee that anything you produce will achieve it. Sure, going viral will help you reach your goals a lot faster, but it is consistent marketing efforts that will get you to where you need to be. Optimize your website. Systematically build links with these methods. You’ll get there!
