There is no denying it, traffic is the currency of the web, without it our website is left to rust and eventually die out. So it is your job as the owner of the website to keep pumping “blood” into the veins and arteries of your website and make is a success.
Another vital piece of information you need to pick up on traffic is that not all traffic was created equal. Getting thousands of untargeted visitors will probably do you no good (besides maybe boosting your Alexa ranking), these visitors will not buy your products neither sign up for your newsletter. You need targeted traffic!
Luckily for you, the topic of this article is just that – ways to generate targeted traffic to your website!
Pain traffic is for those of you who are impatient to get the ball rolling and see if your effort in building the website was worth it. Our story from the first couple paragraphs about the importance of targeted traffic is even more crucial here.
There are a lot of providers out there, selling traffic that is not very targeted and of high value. You will have to do your own testing and figure out which is the best traffic provider and stick to them.
One of these respected providers is http://webtrafficgeeks.com/ . They will offer you the possibility to choose traffic from 120 different niches and even get target it, giving you the choice of 60 countries.
Forums are a great way to generate good, targeted traffic but only if you know what you are doing and invest time and effort into it. Making a profile and spamming the forum with your low quality posts, all in effort to promote your website, won’t do you any good.
The other marketers are not stupid and they will see right through you; you have to be smarter than that. You need to position yourself as a person of authority, always try to answer questions using credible sources or your own experience (if you have any). And after a while, once people begin trusting you more, you can direct them to your website.
Using Facebook groups and pages is another great way to attract some traffic. Granted, they will not be the most targeted traffic you even had, but these will be the people generally interested in what you have to say.
For this reason you need to nurture your relationship with your followers and also try to position yourself as an authority in your niche. Once you get people’s trust things will get much easier. And after you get it, you will need to work even harder and give them even more useful information to maintain that level of trust.
Teaming up with other marketers in your field is a great way to get the word out on your products and services. These other marketers, especially if they have been in the market longer, usually have large mailing lists and just one shout to their readers about you can propel you to the stars.
