Newbie with a site.

by 13 replies
Hi All,

I own a wordpress site that aggregates 5 interesting posts per day. I have not done any marketing whatsoever but get almost 200 visits per month. My questions are:

1. How to increase traffic to the site.

2. How to monetize from above traffic.

I am very low on cash, but have a lot of free time. I am willing to put 40+ hours a week on this.

Also, this is a niche I quite enjoy therefore would like to monetize on it and provide a quality user experience.

    I agree that social media is huge to increase traffic so I would use that to direct people to your website.

    The answer for question 2 would be to ensure you have a way to capture emails on your website so that they can sign up for more. From there you will be able to monetize by doing affiliate marketing.

    All the best,

    If you are just starting out your website, you need the help of professional writers, editors and content marketers.

    In order to minimize the cost that you need to cover for your website, I suggest that you try hiring Filipino writers, editors or marketers here

    I've posted a job there just two days ago (by the way I'm a content manager) and I've hired 5 great Filipino writers for my client's website.

    Do you collect email addresses and then drive traffic back to your site when you post new content? Repeat visitors turn into buyers with repeated exposure to your website. When you email previous visitors, they tend to return, whereas if you don't, they probably won't come back.

    Here are some ideas for getting you website out there. You can place an ad in Craigslist. You can write an article about your site with a link and put it on an ezine. You can write a press release and submit it through one of the press release sites.

    Remember to include you website in all of them and of course include a way to capture emails.

    Wow it is very impressible with your works and your visits when you do not have any marketing on it. It shows that your site has great potential.
    You can use guest posting, collecting email... to increase traffic. Register for GA, affiliate to monetize it.
    Keep up your good work.
