    Why not try all of them and track where your visitors come from?

    better?

    they should work together dont you think?

    to test, paid traffic is best because its immediate

    but for the long haul, you'd want a body of work that garners traffic on the regular.

    best of luck,

    It's not easy to get traffic. To get traffic you have to increase visitors for your site. For this reason, I think fb is the actual target. Because, It is free to use and easy to increase visitors by creating a page. Thanks.

    If you use paid traffic, then you will be able to see immediate results. While you are using paid traffic to send visitors to your site, you should capture their email address so that you can own that traffic instead of just renting it.

    While you are building a list with the paid traffic, you can be working on SEO so that you can start to get free traffic in the long run.

    Use what you can afford, just make sure that your leads are targeted
    to your niche.

    As far as email marketing goes, anyone who is trying to make money online is
    foolish if they are not collecting and promoting through emails.

    I agree with the others. Try both and find out what works best for you. Maybe you'll find both are good options.

    You ready to take notes, because I see some solid truth here, but I'm just going to lay it out for you, since blog sites are my specialty;

    1. Create solid content that surveys the readers, and has the reader interact with the content, allowing them to feel involved. This helps them to remember your content better, and solve their issues/learn what they want to on a personal level.

    2. Write out about 10 articles, varied in size and topic, but all related to your niche. DO NOT TRY TO BE A SALESMAN!

    3. Create a Facebook Page. Introduce yourself, and your blog and its purpose.

    4. Share all of the articles on that FB page.

    5. Use FB Ads to drive traffic to your page after you have linked your page to your website through the articles, as well as your page info (Website URL on profile).

    6. Write 3-4 awesome articles every week, or what you can, preferably minimum of 3 articles a week for the first 6 months.

    7. Use your FB Page to interact with and involve your audience through surveys asking what they want to learn/read to help with their problem.

    8. Write content based off of that, and share to your page.

    9. Continue using FB ads to drive traffic to your articles.

    10. Have a landing page with a solid free offer for an email to get subscribers once you have built a small fallowing and get feedback one your FB Page and comments on your articles.

    11. Send new FB Ads to the landing page that shows comments of how your audience like what you do for them, and how that gift will help them, and how following you will improve whatever it is that they want.

    12. Rinse and repeat.

    It's the easiest way to quickly grow traffic, get comments and interaction on your site, and boosts your rankings through SEO because social interactions from your website traffic now has a large effect on your rankings.

    Hope this helps. Of course there are many ways to do this, and this isn't in perfect order, but it's basically the idea you need to have. Just work with it until you find solid results.

    I would also recommend that you add Google Analytics to your website, so that way you can see which articles get the most visitors from your FB Page, and which articles get the most interaction, and improve/expand your content based off of that information.

    Cheers!

    Hello there,

    It would be best for you to utilize SEO and FB to get good traffic for your blog. If you want to have good results quickly, paid traffic would do. However, I suggest you start with FB first; make your blog appealing and enticing, but not too sales-y; people don't like that.

    Email marketing is good, as long as you know how to do it. Make sure you add a personal touch to your emails and make it interesting. In this way, your readers will surely check out your blog/content.

    Hope this helps.

    The answer is: Pick one traffic method that converts for you and stick to it. Different niches and different affiliate programs have different target audience. Some people prefer to ask people on FB before buying. Some people will usually Google for that keyword, product name keyword, etc before jumping into buying decision.

    Yes, for long term profit, it is recommended that you learn free traffic tactics, such as SEO or social media marketing, since these traffic sources will cut lots of your budget for long term. The trick is to test that keyword by using Adwords/Bing Ads first, and then if it converts, try to optimize your website for that keyword.

    For getting immediate results you should try some paid methods like- FB ads, google Adwords, bing ads etc. And for free and long term you should try SEO. These days Email marketing is giving maximum ROI. So it's also good way to promote your products or get targeted traffic.

    Bing ads for instant traffic and it can be cheap. For SEO you can find good services on SEOclercks. You can test Bing ads first and see how it goes and meanwhile do SEO.

    @MM11 - Here's the thing with anything other than basic on-site SEO. If you get too deep into it, just as you THINK you have it all figured out, the algorithm will change enough to mean, in real terms, that the goalposts just moved again. In short, your income could fluctuate massively if you are too reliant on SEO/organic traffic for your income. Ignore this advice at your peril - you will end up stressing about what the search engines are going to do next if you go down this rabbit hole too far. Basic SEO is fine.

    If you are going to use Bing Ads or Facebook Ads for you blog, then I recommend using a email list or newsletter to get visitors to subscribe to your blog. Then so whenever you make a new post it gets sent directly to their emails. Bing Ads and Reddit have gotten me massive amounts of signups in the past. I don't know too much about Facebook Ads.

    SEO is a long term strategy ( FB and Ads are both short term and long term based on your budget )

    If you looking for fast result, then ads are the way to go, this being said, FB is not great for page conversion ( great for facebook pages conversion ).

    Blog for SEO is a free method to drive traffic - very often blogging for SEO can hardly gain readers for your blog. I'm not familiar with SEO anymore... AIl I'd like to say is to use the paid method and more important is you'll need to invest your time to it.

    Bing and Fb is a paid method to drive traffic and of course you can start to generate targeted traffic tomorrow and how much you're willing to spend to drive more visitors to your website.
