I ve been thinking about two keen forms of online traffic generation, would you suggest either the use of bots for promotions on social media or by using their in-build paid ad services?

    It all depends on the nature of your business both bots and social media promotion will work. So look at the targeted audience and categorize them.

    It depends on a lot of factors.

    Another strategy which can work really well is to grow a "tribe" of people who want what you're offering. You can grow it for free, or invest a little in paid ads to get initial growth, then it will continue to grow for free (if engagement is good).

    Your tribe members see you as the expert, and get to know, like and trust you, which makes selling to them very much easier and more effective, and the whole strategy doesn't take more than an hour or two per day initially.

    I hope this helps,

    Chris

    Okay why in the world would you use bots? Are you trying to grow a real long term sustainable business or trying to get rich quick?

    Your best bet is to grow an audience of people that love what you are doing. This may take longer but in the end you will reap the benefits.

    I am not too sure what exactly you mean by bots but your best option is either growing an audience organically for free. Or paying for ads to build brand awareness and build an audience that way.

  • I believe the OP is talking about chat bots, i.e. Facebook's chat bot feature.

    Bots will never bring you quality traffic, leads or sales, and that's exactly why we want traffic in the first place isn't it?

    Don't waste your time or money on automated traffic that brings in no cash. Make some effort to generate traffic organically, it pays.

    I would use their built-in paid advertising services. There's no telling how the automated bots would send you visitors. What metrics would they be using to direct "qualified" traffic to your offer? Something to think about. Have you considered Google Ads and Microsoft Ads?

    It's always better to go with Paid Ads than going for traffic from bots. Bot traffic is not real traffic while paid traffic is real traffic. Paid traffic comes from authorizing sources like Google, Facebook, Twitter, or other major advertisers while bot traffic is always identified by search engines and it can penalize your website as well.

  • Use paid advertising on social media networks, so you can narrow down your focus on buyer traffic in your demographic.

    Bots usually gets you banned eventually if it goes against the t&c's of the social media platform.

    I know quite a number of people who make 6 figures using FB chat bots

    When paired with the right FB paid ad campaigns, you stand to make a lot of money

    WARNING: the learning curve is STEEP (and expensive if you don't have the discipline and patience). Beware of 'gurus' that claim they can teach you this

    You're better off hiring a bot-based marketing firm to run your campaigns
