I wanted to create a quick post to share my Top 3 most effective traffic strategies.
Over the past 7 years I've tested hundreds of different traffic strategies
and these 3 have continued to be our top dogs over and over again.
I personally like to track everything using Adtrackz Gold so I know
exactly which sources are converting highest into subscribers and sales.
So without further ado - here are my Top 3. I'd love for you to share your favorites as well!
1. Facebook Ads.
When it comes to media buying and generating traffic on demand this is by far
my favorite source. We're having a lot of really good results using Facebook
Sponsored stories in the News Feed.
Facebook allows you to get laser-targeted in front of your exact audience.
Whether that's parents of 3 year olds or women 20-28 who have a wedding
in 3 months or less. You can hone in on your EXACT audience in a way that
no other platform has allowed us to do previously.
It's a great place to create consistent lead flow and subscriber growth even on a small daily budget.
It's a lot like Adwords was in the beginning. A LOT of traffic available at very affordable prices.
2. Blogger Outreach.
This one is a bit more time-intensive but it's the exact strategy I use to get
my first 100 retweets and facebook likes.
I like to send out at least 100 fun, personalized emails to related bloggers / social media influencers.
You can find related bloggers using sites like:
Here's a sample email:
I am LOVING your twitter stream. Soooo much cool stuff.
I found a ton of blogging tips just reading through
Just added you to one of my Twitter Lists of 'Cool Bloggers'
so I don't miss any of your updates.
I also just published a new blog post I think you might like...
It was retweeted yesterday by Neil Patel
We're doing a little internal contest to try and get 100 retweets
so if you're able to share it that would be super cool. I'd probably
do a little happy dance in my chair lol
Also, please do let me know if there's ever anything I can do for you.
Have Fun and get creative with it!
Look for connections that you can make with the blogger. Similar hobbies,
interest, coffee addiction
I've met soooooo many cool bloggers this way. Just remember to keep it
personal. Don't just blast out emails for the sake of it.
3. Forum Marketing.
It's old-school but it's STILL one of the best traffic drivers around.
And extremely high-quality traffic at that.
Forums allow you to tap into a laser-targeted audience.
It's literally one of the few places online where you can generate high-quality traffic within 10 minutes.
But the key is to provide MASSIVE value.
There are currently millions of conversations taking place around the web
about parenting, photography, fitness, pet care, personal finance, traveling,
and every other topic under the sun.
By adding VALUE to these conversations, you can generate hundreds of visitors per day.
When I first got started online, this was the main strategy I used to start building my subscriber list.
There is simply no other strategy out there that works this quickly, this effectively, and completely for free.
So now it's your turn
What are your top 3 favorite traffic strategies?
