Which Traffic Techniques Are You Concentrating On In 2012 That Is Different From 2011?


My traffic techniques are pretty similar I am concentrating mostly on video marketing, seo, social networking, and providing great content for my blog.

And obviously listbuilding

I am starting to buy more solo ads too keep building my lists up.( Most are worth every penny just look for the solo ads with a lot of positive reviews ).

What new traffic methods are you using in 2012 that you were not using in 2011? Or are using more and more of?

Thanks, let's get the party started :p

    Yeah? why there's no people coming in here? this should be a good question.

    We in my team(working for James Wedmore).. we're currently adding Pinterest and start learning on the curve of it.

    Still the other methods are working and we still doing.. most specially the video marketing on youtube(powerful stuff).

    Article marketing can't be taken off.. though it's OLD..still powerful.

    How about through mobile apps? (don't really have much info)..

    Just sharing some thoughts.

    Free Social Networking. Social Networking sites are extremely popular. Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube are starting to dominate among network marketers. They have become some dominate that the tv and radio broadcast are utilizing social media and delivering their audience to their facebook fanpage. They are also asking their fans to tweet them a message and to send them a news video. Google a very large search engine requiring that or concerned that who bought Youtube. Which is now presenting google plus in hopes to contend with the symbol on facebook.

    The same way we have done in 2011. Both paid and non paid. But, this time we'll be investing more in PPC campaigns through Google Adwords and Facebook.

    I am working on creating more content and doing less backlinks work and my traffic is UP as a result - Thing is there has been a change and now good content is where your focus should be.

    Also if you have not already done it, make sure you are part of Google's Authorship program - It helps a lot with your picture showing in the SERPS.

    Cheers

    Pinterest has seen a lot of buzz recently. Although its not a straightforward method, but worth a try nonetheless. Web 2.0 link network is another good idea where you use a set of articles linking to each other as well as your money site...Video is another great way to generate backlinks.

      Can I hear your comments on Pinterest? My thoughts its more suitable for photo-related niches.

    I'm currently doing a come-back-tour with SEO. Use to do a lot but I was dished out a good old Panda slappin' last year.

    But saying that, I'm already getting stellar results in the time period I've been doing it.

    I'm also about to launch a viral compaign which should be interesting to see how it pans out.

    I like the way you can do the work once and they are evergreen i.e. always online giving you clicks back to your Opt-in Page.

    All my marketing is geared towards list building and they all contain links back to my Squeeze page where I give away a free gift.

      Solo ads are the business if you have the cash to invest first day. Once you can average a buck per subscriber you can't go wrong really.

      Just want to make sure you have a well converting squeeze page or it could be money down the sink

    The secret is....THERE IS NOT SECRET TO GETTING TRAFFIC.

    It has not changed that much, even with the panda updates from google. Trust me!

    I am using old traffic strategies, and some new ones, like social media and still making good sales.

    Stop looking for the HOLY GRAIL to getting traffic, and just use those strategies that work best for you. Simple as that.

      Because new websites and new sources of traffic popup all the time and your right most of them still do work but it is always good to brainstorm, and share some ideas.

      You can always learn something new regardless of how long you, or I have been internet marketing.

    The best way for each person/business is the way that works most out of it. Try and use a little bit of everything at start. From there you will understand what works more and what less and then try and built from there. It's always a good thing to cycle through ways and tools but not providing full base on each thing. You are the only one that will say "this is the best technique" because it will work for your goals.

    Social Media's popularity ratings are just getting higher and higher. I know it's bound to make a significant impact on SEO this 2012 with the likes of Google+. But content is still going to be King of all kings, Capo di tutti capi, boss of all bosses, that's how I see it.

    For me, 2012 is the year of the joint venture. I burnt myself out last year on fruitless backlinking and SEO (see my sig. and I'll tell you how I REALLY feel about that!)...

    I'm setting my sights (or sites? hmm...) on product creation, soliciting JV's to mail out for me in exchange for _________, and building a highly responsive buyers list on the back end.

    If anyone's familiar with Lee McIntyre's training, then you'll know precisely what I'm talking about. But I just can't do the SEO and linkbuilding stuff anymore. I'm still trying to find those last few pieces of my soul that got stuck in my computer!

      yup i think people are catching on to video more and more. Esepcailly how to SEO and keyword rank a good video that is getting results.

      The way we have done well with video marketing is look at youtube and the top viewed videos and see if we can manage or create something similar and put our own unique twist on it. That seems to get massive traffic to our site.

      James Schramko was my main man for PPC. He actually showed me how he turned a loser PPC ad into about a $300 - $400 a day profit I think it was. Insane stuff too.

      That was just by testing, tweaking testing and then testing some more. Insane how it works, and you have to do this with paid traffic, but the rewards can be friggen outstanding.

      Many years ago I was too scared to do PPC ads, but that age old saying comes to mind. "You have to spend money to make money" and it doesnt get more targeted than PPC. So the rewards can be outstanding.

      If you came to me and gave $1 coin, and then straight away I gave you a gold $2 or $3 coin back..... how many times would you come back to me and re-invest $1. That is how I see PPC. You put in $1 and you can get 2 or 3 dollars in return...sometimes more. Super cool!

      Lucky you that you have the funds to scale at will. Sometimes (oftentimes actually) I don't know where to get $15 just to renew a domain name (and I own 8 domain names only) or to buy a $7 or $9 WSO.

      I hope that one day I will get there too where I can throw money left and right just to split test or scale things up or whatever, like the gurus and successful people do, but that day is nowhere to be seen as it occurs to me.

      Oh well, we will see what future holds

    I am going to focus on not depending so greatly on one source for traffic. Scares me that my earnings are directly tied to my Google rank. Therefore:

    1. List Building
    2. YouTube
    3. PPC
    4. Offline

    I am going to build my lists and work out a good pitch with good copy writing. Once I know the pitch/copy will convert I will do some PPC for those to a squeeze page/site.

    I'm testing out Press Releases. I'd previously used them sporadically at best, and this year plan on sending out 2 or 3 each month and tracking the results. It's only been a couple of months (haven't sent out March ones yet, and results are numbering in the hundreds so not really promising yet. I'm hoping that they continue to build on themselves and increase as each month goes by.

    For me it is product creation, with an upsell and 100% commissions on both for my JV's. On the back end I feed subscribers into my membership site for continuity.

    Have lost interest in SEO although I did spend a lot of time on it last year. Can't even use my Market Samurai properly now thanks to big G - so certainly don't want my business to rely on them - very dangerous!

    My first WSO is coming in a couple of weeks - so excited about that!

        Sorry for jargon - JV is a Joint Venture partner also loosly known as an Affiliate and it is someone who promotes your product to their customers for you - usually for a commission - in my case I am giving away 100% of the sale price.

        When the customer buys (or not) the first offer they see, there will be a second offer known as a one time offer or upsell appear. Again my JV partners get 100% of that sale also.

        WSO is "Warrior Special Offer" and is an offer made to warriors here on the forum - usually a special deal at a great price. If you go to the main page of this forum - you wil see the WSO's.

        Hope that clears it up for you.
