Urgent Advice Needed ~ !!! #DyingOverHere

26 replies
Hi Guys,

My website is brand new, and I need to know the
best paid traffic sources. I want to pay for tons of genuine targeted traffic.
I originally wanted to do CPM facebook ads, and I already created a fanpage for the website.
But since I used a fake name on the account, I read online that I will get banned, and I
don't want to risk something bad happening to my fan page, I already paid for some fake
likes on it. Maybe all this will get me banned...
I'm not sure, but I decided to forget about facebook for now.

I want to know the other traffic sources, I have enough money to run ads for months,
I just need your opinions on where to start.
Where do I find reliable targeted traffic? ( apart from Facebook, Bing, Google) ?
especially ones that are similar to Facebook's CPM?
Which traffic sources have worked for you?
Which traffic source can make my site go viral?
I'm willing to pay for tons of traffic.
I just need some advice.

Thanks.

    Please stop looking for the Easy button or magic beans.

    Your whole post screams that this is what you're doing.
    Which traffic source can make my site go viral?
    Seriously??

    Get A traffic source, ONE, that is likely to have a high portion of prequalified traffic relating to what you're offering.

    Test it.

    That's the magic button. No one can tell you "here it is, the perfect traffic source" and if they do, they're lying.

    Well, you said you're going to forget about Facebook for now but if you plan to use social media, NEVER buy likes or followers or anything of the sort.

    Scroll down and read my posts here to see why: http://www.warriorforum.com/social-m...l#post10636300

    Just choose a traffic source, and get good at it... that's how you generate lots of traffic.

    From one Jason to another, here's the deal.

    You take a source of traffic and you filter it.

    Unqualified Leads >>> Qualified Leads >>> Sales.

    That's the revenue equation.

    U and Q have a cost. S brings you revenue. Obviously you want the revenue to exceed the costs--as soon as it does, you have a profitable funnel.

    So for example you might have a funnel that looks like this: 1000 Unqualified Leads >>> 100 Qualified Leads >>> 10 Sales. If you were looking at a high ticket situation this might be fantastic, especially if your U cost was $1 each and your S was $10K in revenue.

    A low ticket one might look like 50,000 U >>> 7,500 Q >>> 500 S

    500 sales @ $97 each = $48,500.

    With this estimate you know your U cost has to be less than $1 to break even. But you also should have a back end--an upsell--to make profit with. And that has a Revenue Equation of its own.

    Estimate and test for each source of traffic. Some will convert better than others because they have a higher portion of prequalified leads hidden in them.

    Compare Actual VS Estimated performance. If your U is the same (ie. you dumped as many Unqualified Leads into the funnel as you said you would) but your Q is low, then you know your Traffic source is poor.

    If your U is the same and your Q is on target, but your Sales are low, then you know your Conversion tool needs improvement.

    Once you've got steady, predictable profitability, THEN you ramp up the traffic.

    There are only two sides to the Revenue Equation: TRAFFIC...and CONVERSION.

    Just like in a car, there are only Electrical and Mechanical concerns.

    In the funnel coaching calls I do, the #1 problem people discover they have is this:

    They have nowhere near enough Unqualified Leads coming into the system to generate enough Sales to be profitable. They're beaten before they start.

    Jason, you sound like a rookie going Mach 2 with his hair on fire! And you're about to lose a lot of money unless you change your mindset fast.

    You're not ready to do that just yet.

    My advice to you, since you asked for it, is . . . S - L - O - W D - O - W - N !

    Don't put a lot of money into any traffic source until you've tested and refined your campaigns so you know they are profitable on a small scale. Then is the time to ramp up - not all at once - but ramp them up incrementally.

    You've already done that with your fake account name and fake paid for "likes." "Fake" anything in Internet marketing is risky and almost always bad!

    Jason, you are assuming that traffic sources that have worked for others will also work for you. That is very dangerous thinking. Every market is different, every offer is different, every marketer brings a different set of skills and knowledge to the table. What worked for someone has no bearing on what will work for you.

    Traffic sources don't make web sites go viral! People make things go viral and there's very little you can do about it.

    Spend some time at the WF learning what you should be doing. Take the advice from experienced people here or I can promise you failure from the beginning.

    Hi Jason,

    I can understand your problem. As you mentioned you want genuine traffic to your site and ready to pay for that then answer is genuine traffic are on Facebook, Bing and Google.

    Surely I do agree with Steve please consider his advice Every market is different, every offer is different, every marketer brings a different set of skills and knowledge to the table. What worked for someone has no bearing on what will work for you.


    Be real and genuine. Surely you can get the genuine traffic from facebook if your tactics are genuine and you are a real person and follow the guidelines of facebook. They love to do business with real people with real deal.

    Have a positive mindset right. Genuine traffic is everywhere and it works whether its a facebook, google, bing, twitter, instagram or pinterest. But you need right strategy with positive frame of mindset. That's it.

    I am telling this because on the basis of my results in my recent campaign on Facebook I got 73 page likes, 24 subscribers, 35 shares, 137 website clicks @ of 0.11 cent which is really cool and it costs to me $14.40 and it is still running.

    And except Facebook, Bing, Google, you can go with buysellads.com, Advertising.com, Taboola for native ads and yes very lucrative now-a-days Solo ads and for that you can go with udimi, safeswaps, dedicated emailmarketing but before going with solo ads vendor try small, read recent reviews, investigate properly then go for it. Hope this will make somewhere sense.

    So never ever go to fake side and be real.

    You need to focus on the bigger picture. Internet marketing is no longer an type of business model that is done overnight, it takes real work, dedication, and perseverance. Forget going straight for pay per click advertising right out of the gate, first you need to focus on creating a truly well designed & developed website/product, then work on getting your conversion rates up. Once, all of that is done, perhaps go and try out a little PPC advertising, using the free $100 Google Adwords credits, $50-$100 via Bing, $50-$100 via Yahoo, and another $50-$100 via Facebook.

    Wow marketing is so intriguing. You can put 10 people in a room and they will all have totally opposite strategies for their business.

    Paid and Free, Personalized and Pen name, real and fake, done manually or outsourced.

    Build over time or Built over night.

    Jason and others are giving real world smart advice especially the 4 letter word. TEST.

    I get a kick from people blatantly saying what they will do and how they will do it with no regard to getting opinions on their business strategy. Marketing will always fascinate me.

    Be careful my friend...

    Urgent and a ton of spending does not automatically equal fire put out and could mean inferno of flames.

    Good luck either way sounds exciting and would love to know how it turns out.

    Hi Jason:

    I use blog ads as those work for me. Try to find blogs in your niche that are not too expensive.

    Blog ads dot com has many "HIVES" as they call them that focus on a niche that is narrow. This way you do not have to waste time looking for blogs to advertise in. Budget hive is great for low cost traffic, but I have found that my conversions are poor. Better to pay a little more. Get blogs that match the interests of your consumers.

    Bing is similar to Google, but less expensive. Also, I feel it has better conversion. However, that might just be just my experience. Try both and test them to see. Technical support from Bing is also superior. I feel that Google adds a clutter of ads to make more money. Result is that your tiny box is lost due to a mess.

    I also like project wonderful, and it is a great platform that many rec. Try to find blogs that match your niche in order to maximize your conversions. Best of luck to you.

    There are many places to advertise. You can just use buysellads and propellerads and you can also search google for "Advertise here" + keyword. This way you'll find blogs and websites and forums where you can place your ads. No matter what advertising network you use make sure to test small and expand only if it proves to be working for you.

    Don't just throw in hundreds or thousands of dollars. Find the sites that you think would be a good thing to advertise on and then test for 7 days. Weed out those that don't work and increase the spending on those that work. There is no shortage in traffic my friend if you know where to look, it is good offers and conversions where the shortage is! Remember this.

    I don't see the problem. You want targeted traffic, but can't use Facebook PPC? That's easy -- try Adwords.

    HOWEVER... Adwords will NOT create a "viral" effect. For that you need YouTube, Facebook, or other forms of social media.

    But, if I were you, I'd TEST Adwords and see what kind of results you get.

    If you have good keywords, split-test your ads, and have a landing page with a good quality score, you may be pleasantly surprised at the result.

    You want FB ads, then what steppes you? But my opinion instead of FB PPC or CPM you should target a dedicated FB page of your website and promote your website through your page, I believe it would be easy and cheap than direct website promotion through PPC

      Thats what I thought too. But the thing is,
      my facebook account has a fake name, it does not match with my paypal or visa card...
      And also, I previously bought fake likes for the fan page,
      All this might get me banned.
      I really wanted to start facebook ads earlier this week, but after reading online reviews of
      accounts getting banned, It just killed it for me.
      I don't want to lose my fan page... I worked hard for it.( in my own way)

      Is it still safe for me to run facebook ads?
      I do 100% genuine stuff, and I will follow their guidelines.

    One of the best paid traffic methods that I have found is solo ads! I go to facebook and look up solo ad page. There you can trust that you are to get authentic clicks because you are going to write a testimony about your experience once your done. I have bought the so called top tier "known solo ad providers" and I got crap opt ins for what I paid for. Will not do that again. I like this method because it is quick and gets you results.

    My advice would be to master one paid traffic strategy before jumping to another one. Spend $150 a month on Facebook PPC (a daily budget of $5) and see if you can refine your campaign to get it to at least break even. Start off small at first then simply scale. Jumping from strategy to strategy because your hungry for traffic will have you spinning your wheels. Patience is a virtue when it comes to this internet marketing game.

    Hi Jason,
    I would start by spying the competition for the product you want to sell. If it is your own product I would spy for similar products. So I would go to similar web and analyze my competitors, means their traffic sources. Thereafter I would follow the best competitor (best practise solution).
