The best traffic source for newbie

by vashet
53 replies
Hi guys,

Only recently I came across this forum and I can see this is a powerful source of knowledge. I turn to you with a few questions which may sound basic to you, but for me can be very helpful.

I run a website in Forex niche. I'm offering free analysis and great forex system. Everything is available for free, all you have to do is to register.

I want to start with e-mail marketing soon, but I don't know where to look for traffic. Can you recommend 1-2 best traffic sources? (PPC? if yes, then which one?).
I posted links and analysis to my website on forex forums already, but most people simply do not believe anything can be given for free, so the traffic is pretty low.

Any tips will be much appreciated.

Best regards
V.

    Youtube can be a goldmine if you do it right.

    Facebook is quick and easy, that's my go-to place when testing or I want traffic quickly.

    You can use use facebook . but don't invest too much in it . People don't want to buy when the'yre scrolling on FB . Gather few followers, try to post engaging content , then start advertising .

    Which sources are best for you will depend upon where your targeted prospects can be found.

    If you just put your ads up on a random site without targeting, your conversion will be extremely low and probable lose you money. You want to market at venues where Forex prospects can be found in great concentrations. Or, target specific keywords that match what you are going to offer. Often, the best places to market are authority sites in the niche. You can discover those by doing market research.

    Facebook advertising is a good option to get started as it can be learned and picked it up fast. Start small by targeting your audience. Try different age groups, location, gender, etc to see which one converts best and add more budget to the profitable segment.

    V . . awesome post man!

    If I were you, I'd link up with people who have sold similar services/products in the past.

    OR

    I'd do a search for some Forex newsletters that collect emails to see if I could workout a possible solo ad blast to leverage their subscribers.

    Just my two cents, but I hope this certainly helps!

    Good luck on your ventures in the Forex niche!

    Depends on your budget.

    If your budget is low (or zero), you can write content, do guest blogging etc. basically free traffic aka SEO.

    SEO also depends on your keyword. If the competition is low, and you do your homework on keyword research, you can rank easily without spending much.

    If you set your expectation a bit higher (target harder keywords), prepare some decent budget.

    PPC also depends on keyword, some forex keywords have some of unbelievable CPC.

    I'm sorry if it's sounds vague ... but really we can't give specific answer without more information.

    My advice is to have great content on your site and promote it on forums.

    that's a super expensive keyword to target for PPC...

    go to the cheaper traffic sources and see if you can find a thriving forex community:

    pinterest

    twitter

    Shout outs from a Popular Forex Focused Snapchater

    newer reputable PPV networks

    test and try out.. but stay away from the usual watering holes for now...

    best of luck

    Honest answer?
    You need to build you website first. I had a look and you have an extremely basic home-page and 4 pretty poor casino review pages.
    For me, Playtech casinos are TERRIBLE for attracting players - and that's all you have.

    Build a big, informative, well laid-out site - wait 6 months and the players will come eventually.
    Sorry, but there's no easy route into making money being an affiliate - it takes a LOT of hard work.

    Good luck.

    Wow! Thank you very much for all the answers, it means a lot to me.

    As for the budget it will be in the range of $200- $300/month, which I quess is not huge for sure.
    Many of you recommend facebook, targeted advertising is great, but I'm not sure if it will be easy in this niche. Same comes with SEO as the competition in 'Forex' is huge, so success here will require not only money but also a lot of time

    I was focused more on PPC, but from what I see it is also based on the popularity of keywords, so it can be hard to break through

    Website is based on the nice wordpress theme, so in this field I think that there is nothing to be ashamed of.

    I think I will start with forums, as I did it in the past, just had not enough patience.
    Twitter, pinterest, snapchat are pretty new to me, need more research.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Vashet,
    Most newbies start out with social media marketing and once done well can be a great source of free traffic, you can use social media management tools like hootsuite to take charge of your marketing. If budget allows, promote on those site.

    Also think of classified as a second option

    I don't know why no one mention go with direct advertising. It is forex niche, and it is saturated niche. If you promoting your own product then I will say first go with direct advertising. Search on Google about specific keyword/query and then contact website owner to place your website links for few bucks.

    If you know your product well, and you have low budget then I recom to go with direct/sponsor advertising.

    If you go with Facebook, and Adwords then you will lose your money instantly without getting any conversation. You should have tight budget to promote that kind of niche, otherwise you will not going to get your winning campaign, it's take lot's of testing and optimization.

    Thanks

    There are many ways to increase your website traffic. As your site about the Forex, so you can write relevant blog commenting, There are many Forum posting site regarding the HYIPs or, Forex, there you can make discussion. You can create thread, you can reply any existing thread, even you can use the Social Media site such as Facebook or, some other Social Media sites. I think you can get a good result. Thanks for your advance.

    Email marketing is the best source to interact with your prospects. I would suggest to start with Solo ad for your Forex business. Here is the list of 2 websites for traffic.
    1. www.facebook.com (You can always create a Fan page in your FB account and run ads to drive traffic to your website or landing pages. Facebook Business Manager is the best resource for this. You need to create an ad account using FB Business Manager and or in other words its called "Advert". FB is the number 1 resource these days to get maximum number of REACH, likes and comments with less budget. You can also ramp up the budget when needed.
    2. www.twitter.com (You can use Twitter to create ads. Ads in Twitter work differently than Facebook but you will get good traffic.
    I also suggest to start SEO of your business website. You should also have an opt-in page on your website to capture the leads. I suggest to use Aweber or MailChimp for Email Marketing. I wish you good luck!

    Thanks for all the answers it helped me a lot.

    I decided to start with Facebook. I have a fanpage already but I don't know how to promote it properly. Paid traffic will come later, as first I want to know how it works and get more familiar with FB.

    Do you think that buying 'likes' on the start will be a good idea? I know it's fake traffic, but website with 2k likes looks better than this with only 20likes.

    I'm posting a valuable content on the regular basis, but I quess it's not enough as I have only few followers. Should I start quest posting on the other related fanpages? Any other ideas?

    I would suggest that you find and create posts on forum where they have thread section for hyip and Forex trading..

    Eg.. MoneyMakerGroup ,... Talkgold HYIP, Investment & Money Forum

    Those are just a couple forums but you can find many more.. Just google some keywords that your website or service is base on.. Eg Forex Forum etc

    You can also find groups or individual people on Facebook talking about or promoting Forex..

    I hope that helps..

    I am biased V but blogging is the best way for a newbie to drive traffic.

    Here's why: the traffic you drive is TRUSTING traffic. Meaning, instead of focusing on traffic stats/numbers - common newbie mistake - you will learn your niche, share helpful content, build connections with pros, and drive targeted, trusting, engaged traffic to your blog. Which will grow your rep quickly. Which grows your business quickly.

    THAN post on forums as free traffic: forex forums are always plenty of people lookin for strategies, etc, just go to DonnaForex, or ForexPeaceArmy etc..

    THAN go to Bing: cheap traffic, cheap leads. Just laser-target.

    Than go to Facebook Ads: just take care on not makin 'big claims' like earn a lot of money, etc, cause their rules are becomin strict.

      Thanks very much, lot of useful informations!

      Yes, I'm offering very decent trading system, also regular analysis, everything for free of course.

      I can see that quest posting, or even running my own topic on Forex forums can be great source of traffic, the main problem is, that most forums won't allow to do it. I've contacted forex factory, babypips and they say that is not allowed. Donna forum is great, but it's getting much smaller visitors last months, no idea why is that. Peace army may be a good idea.

      I will try Bing soon, I just want to make capturing the leads easier, as maybe my current form (easy registration) is discouraging. Some kind of popup banner when you need to put only your e-mail to get instant download.

      Best regards

    That'd be too easy -- Nobody with a site in your niche that's getting significant traffic would outright give you their best traffic sources. They don't have any interest in creating more competitors for them out of the army of Internet marketers here. That's why you got mostly generic answers here with what you're asking, i.e. Google Adwords, Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc.

    So, if you want to know the specific traffic sources that are used by heavily trafficked sites in your niche, then you should spy on what they're doing; and

    This means the first thing you need to do is to identify the sites or Web properties of your top competitors. These can be heavily trafficked forex-related blogs, Web forums, social media pages and sites that are offering niche content and promoting popular forex-related products and services, especially those with top ranking pages in Google and Bing for relevant exact match keywords with significant search numbers ...

    Once you have a list of your top competing sites, you can then use SimilarWeb.Com and SpyFu.Com to do the following things:

    1. With these tools, you can identify the specific traffic generation methods that are working well for each of your top competing sites. These include direct traffic, referral traffic, social traffic, organic search traffic and paid search & display traffic;

    2. For sites with significant direct traffic, you can study the things that they're doing to get direct traffic, i.e. Do they have irresistible opt-in offers? Are they offering enticing membership subscriptions? How are their offers and sales funnels crafted?;

    3. For sites with significant referral traffic, you can identify through these tools the exact sites that are driving referral traffic to them. You can then confirm if there are any advertising or content placement opportunities for you in those referring sites;

    4. For sites with significant social traffic, you can identify through these tools the exact social networks that are driving social traffic to them. You can then study their social media pages in those networks and also confirm if there are any advertising or content placement opportunities for you in those social networks;

    5. For sites with significant organic search traffic, you can identify through these tools the exact keywords that they use for their organic SEO campaigns. You can then study the onpage and offsite SEO work that they've done on their sites, and you can then confirm if it would be feasible for you to compete with them for those keywords; and

    6. For sites with significant search & display traffic, you can identify through these tools the exact keywords that they're using for their search & display campaigns in Google Adwords. You can also study how their ads are crafted, especially those with long running ads. You can then confirm if there are advertising opportunities for you in Google Adwords for the same or relevant keywords ...

    Note: You can also use these tools to learn about the traffic generation methods along with the traffic sources of non-competing sites where a significant percentage of your target audience most likely hangs out, especially those with top ranking pages in Google and Bing for laterally relevant keywords with significant search numbers; and

    You can then confirm if there are advertising and content placement opportunities for you in those non-competing sites and their traffic sources. These sites might be heavily trafficked Web forums, blogs, social media pages and so on about laterally relevant niches like investing, bizopps, gambling, etc. -- Just choose popular sites with content, products and services that might be complementary or supplemental to the needs of your target audience when it comes to forex trading ...

    Thank you for your sharing. I am a new person, want to do email marketing soon but do not know where to start and how to gather valuable information. Thanks to you that I also have a bit of knowledge about email marketing.

    Best traffic source?
    Best way is to JV (team up) with someone who is already succeeding in your market even if you share the commissions.

    If you wan't a 'buyers' email list you need to put a price on your products because otherwise you'll only attract 'tire kickers'.

    For email marketing study anything you can get from Omar Martin.
    He also has a Buzzinar plugin strategy to help your traffic go viral on the Social Media.
    Hope that is useful,
