How to Drive Traffic to your Website
Driving traffic to your website is a grueling and time consuming task, especially if you don’t know where to start. When I first started online marketing about 5 years ago all I did was blog. I wrote articles, posted it, and then waited… I did no other means to drive traffic to my website. I basically threw my blog in the internet hoping for prospects to find it.
I did no web traffic advertising or auto syndicating to any social sites. Why? Because I had no guidance or training on what to do. I was like most online newbies trying to learn things myself. I was attending webinars, researching the web, and reading tons of other blogs in the same niche. It was information overload.
The most difficult part of online marketing is driving people to your capture page. There are tons of mediums to drive traffic and generate leads through your funnel system. Which vehicle should you utilize to drive traffic? Attempting to do all will discourage 97% of all internet marketers and drain their bank accounts.
- classified ads
- safelist advertising
- ezine ads
- article marketing
- forum marketing
- solo ads
- traffic exchanges
- list/email marketing
- social media
- video marketing
- social bookmarking
What to do…
Select one or two mediums (ie. blogging, Facebook…) and master it before attempting other means to drive web traffic to your capture page. Set your auto-responder accordingly to ensure you stay in touch with your contact list once a week.
Another term for online marketing is called “passive marketing” – setting up capture pages, sending traffic to it, and waiting for leads to pop in. Take note that if you need money now your best bet would be “active prospecting” which most people fear. Picking up the phone (most effective) and connecting with individuals one-on-one or using Facebook if used properly.
Free and Paid Web Traffic
