I have contributed traffic generation ideas to this forum, because I feel that people need to be reminded of the basics. However, eventually it gets to the point where people just need to stick with known methods to generate traffic, and learn how to implement these methods correctly.
Obviously I am not talking about everyone on this forum, in fact I know there are a ton of people here that work harder and smarter than I do, and I respect that and aim to work more efficiently each and every day.
However: Are some people who can't get any traffic just lazy?:confused:
I know for a fact that I can take a brand new website or blog and have it generating at least 1,500 visitors per month in the first 30 days. Now, I know that is not the high volume traffic numbers that a lot of internet marketers talk about, but if you have a sound business model in place, and focus on actually networking with other marketers then you can accelerate your traffic, list-building (and thus income) rather quickly.
Driving 1,500 visitors per month to a squeeze page for 2 months will get you 3,000 visitors. With a squeeze page that converts at 40%, you can then have 1,200 subscribers in just 2 months, and that does not even include ad swapping or recruiting JV partners!
I am not going to go into any in-depth traffic generation strategies here, because I know that if you use the search feature you will find a ton of great content with regards to traffic generation. However, here is a rough outline of particular methods you may want to research:
Article marketing: (Post to your blog, article directories, document sharing sites, etc.)
Content syndication: (Basically the same as article marketing, but try to network with marketers to get your content featured on high traffic blogs.)
Forum marketing: (You can get a ton of traffic from niche forums.)
Classified ads: (Put a picture in your ad, and have a strong call to action.)
Social Networks: (Twitter and Facebook can be great traffic sources, but don't spam your "friends" or "followers" with affiliate offers please.)
None of these methods are groundbreaking, but they do work, and I am using them on a daily basis to drive traffic to many of my niche websites.
So next time you are looking for ways to drive more traffic, focus on the basics, analyze your own analytics, and see where you can tweak your current campaigns to increase traffic.
