How to get targeted traffic?

by Leviathanos 44 replies
Alright so I'm back. I need a small income and I'm prepared to work hard. Do note that I am not planning to make any big income so I am not planning to pay for services and such. My problem is that I am horrible on finding the right offers, and then to find the traffic. I live in sweden which is a fairly small country. Instead I decided to focus on small US campaigns (That often only require a registration, email submit or just a page visit.). My question is, how can I get US traffic to a blog? Like, where would a good place to find a lot of american traffic. My goal of earning is around 100usd a month (If I earn more it's not bad..)
If you have any other suggestions or such feel free to come with them.

(Crap, just noticed I missread which section I posted in. Admin move please?)

    Hey if your goals are that I would look into finding campaigns that you can marry up with social networking. Facebook ads are relatively cheap and combined with a good Twitter campaign you could do some damage with a hundred dollars! Just look for a right campaign and go for it hope this helps!

    To be positive your success you need to make positive the first paragraph captures the attention of the reader. You ought to make positive the paragraph is fascinating as well as on topic. Even if you are successful at getting your prospect to your net site, it does not finish there. Now that you have targeted traffic on your net site, it is your job to keep them there. In the first paragraph, supply these readers with value. Give them what they are wanting and they will stay. Your traffic has expectations of what your net site ought to be and it is your job to live up to those expectations. Failing at this step will only make the user leave your site after visiting it, which is something you do not need.

    Forums seems to be the place that seems likely to generate traffic. I'm a newbie affiliate me and I am about to leave because I get bombarded by all kinds of tools and magic tricks to get traffic. Now I've found this forum, I found hope again because I feel like here is real people and not just sales people.

    Well the problem with social networking for me is that
    Facebook: In that case I have to make another facebook mainly for that, and mass-add US people. I am planning on doing this.
    Twitter: I do have a Money Making Online twitter with about 700 followers, but the traffic generated is fairly small imo. I might be doing it wrong though.

    I think my problem actually is with making a "selling" blog. I am horrible with making a good blogname, and then writing in this selling way. I write good, informative and all but not with the spirit so people get all "Oh my god I NEED this."

    For your targeted traffic you need to define and know your audience, their taste, their like. Then post according to your audience's desire. Then do social bookmarking within your targeted local audience. Then forum posting in the same basis. Thus you may get targeted traffic. Oh, also do article submission with unique and informative one.

      Well that's pretty much my question. Am I just meant to search around for US forums and such to find good US traffic?

    I you have zero money to invest which is they impression i get from reading your post then you just really need to concentrate on forums, blogs and other forms of communication with the public.

    If you wan't too find out wether a specific blog/forum has a lot of US traffic then go to alexa.com and type in the URL.

    It will give you a rough percentage of how much of the traffic is from the US.

    Another idea is buy a domain .com or .org only, create the website and then submit it to google webmaster tools. Once you have you can then change your domain to target google.com, this usually lowers your ranking in all over google's however it will put you slighlty higher in .com.

    If you wan't the 100 percent free way then try uploading videos in youtube, finding searches using google.com keyword tool. And set your target country to the US. Then when you find a good search term create a video with the search term as the heading, and in the description + keywords.

    This will bring you targeted US traffic with about 10 hours work, windows live movie maker is great for making videos and free.

    Peerfly and maxbounty offer great email submit offers and are easy to get into.

    Article marketing is good. Submit to the top 5 article directories and also place the articles on your site. Make a note at the bottom of each article that publisher's can reproduce your article on their site - as long as the contact information is left in tact.

    Join twitter and join twellow.com to attract followers to you on twitter. One of the best ways to get immediate followers is to simply follow other people in your niche. With good solid info and a pitch page that closes well, you should be able to earn some money in your niche.

    Forums are excellent also, so find one in your niche that you can join, and that will allow you to leave your signature at the end of each post. The last tip is to create videos and post them to Youtube. Be personable (?) and provide good information that will inspire users to want to learn more.

    Currently, the fastest way to get targeted traffic to any website involves using the little classified ads on the right side of search giant Google's results pages.

    Called Google AdWords, the system allows any advertiser to open an account with a $5 activation fee and start seeing their ads appear on Google within about 15 minutes.

    Advertisers only pay when visitors actually click through from their ad on Google to their website or affiliate link.

    Overture.com also sells traffic by the click, but they make you wait three to five days to go through their editorial review process before allowing ads to appear on their network.

      I use Adwords quite a bit myself. Just a quick note - If you're going this route don't pay a $5 activation fee. Do a quick search for the latest coupon code & receive up to $100 in free advertising. Believe me, you will need it..there's a serious learning curve when it comes to Adwords.

    Create a dating blog. These types of blogs attract a lot of customers and perhaps you can charge a once of fee of $1 to be part of the site. Bringing potential daters together from all over the world. I'm sure you would attract a few Americans too?

    For traffic is necessary to define and know your audience, their tastes, their neighbors. Then, since according to the desire of their audience. Then do social bookmarking within your local public station. The following forum posts on the same basis. So you can get targeted traffic. Ah, so do article submission with a unique and informative.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[3863818].message }}
  • Make a video using a free service such as Animoto and then post it at YouTube, Metacafe, Kewego and dailymotion. Make sure you have your keyword in the title and your URL on the first line of the description. If you optimise properly you can get on Page 1 of Google pretty quickly and get yourself some free traffic that way.

    Hope that helps

    Apart from all that suggested over here, what you can do is do submission in some local directories of your targeted city. You will find them is plenty and they usually appear in local search results ahead of even some great websites and generate lot of traffic.

    1) Post low cost display ads on relevant sites

    2) Use Adword's display network to advertise your display ads on sites hosting Adsense

    3) Implement postcard marketing to get high converting offline traffic to your site

    4) Submitting articles to the article directories is a good idea. But it takes a while to see alot of traffic from it.

    5) Run an SEO campaign targeting low competition keywords in your niche

    6) Implement PPC advertising (just hope that Google doesn't ban you for any dumb reason)

    7) More still to come....

      Thats true. Make killer content that attracts people to read and tell them to subsribe to your newsletter and get a list going. After that you can sell them down the line after you have proven you know what you are talking about. You dont even need a big list!

    You are so smart. I am trying forum marketing but seems those forum didn't welcome me. My account was banned again and again even if I don't spam. I am so stupid to send links in the past. lol
    But I don't have too much time on those forums. I'd better ask for some advice to start. Anyone have good suggestion? Or I have to Google it myself.
    Anyone that are interested in can also PM me.
