We all know that whatever business model you have, be it affiliate, MLM, or other self-owned online business website, getting traffic (visitors) to your website is utterly crucial for your success.
But, you don’t want just any old traffic. You can buy junk clicks for a few pence a click, but that’s just what it is, junk. Waste of time and money. What you do want is targeted traffic. People that are actually interested in the type of offer you have.
For example, if you had a pet accessories store, you’d want visitors who owned pets and getting traffic from a football fan page wouldn’t be of much use.
Keep this in mind when you’re thinking of traffic. For best results with traffic you want to create “traffic lanes” that keep a steady flow of “correct demographic” type visitors flowing to your website.
One of the simple ways to do this is via Facebook fan-pages. I won’t go into all the details of this in this article, but I will put a link at the end that you can follow if you want to find out how to set these up.
There is an abundance of traffic on Facebook, but also on YouTube too which is equally useful as a great source of targeted traffic. Targeted because the subject of the channel that you use videos from or that you set up yourself filters the kind of people that you’re looking for. Again, just check out the link for more info on getting more free traffic from YouTube.
Once you set these “traffic lanes” up, you can expect a steady flow of responsive visitors to your website.
Traffic, of course, isn’t the only thing you need to run a successful online business, but without it, all your work will be for nothing, so make sure you understand how to generate targeted traffic to your business, before you invest much time or money into it.
Let’s face it, you wouldn’t set up a high-class expensive restaurant in the dead beat area of town where no-one can afford your services. Don’t make the same mistake online.
Flourish and prosper!
