    From my previous experience I have seen that Facebook brings the high quality traffic which has good conversion. Rest of the social sites only bring traffic to visit the site. No conversions from there. Thats from my practical experience.

    I have been doing Search Engine optimization for my personal websites for some time and I feel Social media is key to bring in a lot of traffic.

    It all depends on the content. The strategy for each social media is different. For example

    1. In Facebook: we need to make people follow us before we write any good content. Understand who is your target audience. Attract them with unique image / video content. These days image / video is more dominant in FB.

    2. In Twitter enthusiast, people follow you back if you follow them. Moreover there is more chance of getting Retweeted if you are in touch with key people who are experts in your target domain. Keep interacting with them and engage them

    3. In Reddit, you have subreddit for each topics. This has the most chance to get hits if your content is really good. If you are able to write a content which can stay at the top of a subreddit for a day you can get a minimum of 1000 hits. (Depends on the popularity of subreddit).

    There are other platforms like Pintrest, Stumble Upon which are little different to the existing ones. But generally the strategy remains the same.

    From my experience, LinkedIn brings best traffic to our website. Also, we get conversions through LinkedIn posts.

    Facebook so far. But you need to be clever while promoting your service or offer. The best source of quality traffic is from the facebook group. Because that's your niche mine. Make sure you communicate with members and help them. Then you will get more attention which means people will visit your profile. In your profile, you can add your link for promotion. But stay active.

    If i'm talking about genuine traffic and conversion, LinkedIn is the best. There may be less impressions compare to Facebook but quality of conversion is great.

    The answer leads to a whole other question... what are you selling and where can you reach them?

    Its not that one is better than the other.. its that one may be better than the rest to reach a particular demographic. Facebook, is killer for older age demographics. IG is killer for younger age demographics. Pinterest is killer for the more thrifty tilted more towards female demographic. LinkedIn is probably more male oriented and obviously on the business side of things.

    Again... There isn't an all in one solution or answer here.

    Depending on your niche but I have found success using facebook youtube instagram and offcourse google and twitter.You would have to test it out. I think the traffic subject is subjective because two people in the same niche can use the same platform and get different results.

    Well, It totally depends upon you which social media you need to target to bring more exposure, traffic, and followers on your website. Nowadays most of the people are preferring Facebook to drive traffic to the website. Apart from that Twitter also helps in bringing potential customer and traffic to the website. So just analyze ones and go ahead.

    Thanks!!

    It completely depends on the type of your business/website. Every social media platform has it's own follower base and serves in a different way. Facebook and Twitter will the top priority channels if you are only looking for the "visitors to your website". Linkedin works better if you are looking for "B2B Leads". Pinterest serves better if you have an e-commerce business/website.

  • Hey, traffic from certain social media depends on niche, e.g. twitter has more people who are interested in "politics", etc. ( let's call them smart ), while on Facebook you can find any kind of people ( young, old, middle-aged, smart, "silly", etc. ), while the most people who use Instagram are young, so personally if I would be looking for high quality traffic for my website e.g. about traveling then I would use Facebook and Twitter, but if I managed website about fitness, food, etc., then I would aim for Instagram. Like already users said it, there is no better and worse social media for high quality traffic, it all depends on your content/niche.

    I've had good results with Twitter. Especially in the countries where Twitter is an important source of information: like UK, US, Canada. What I found was that Twitter traffic was more engaged thanks to the communities already built on this network. With Twitter is really important to target your tweets right and use the right hashtags.

    ORGANIC TRAFFIC SECRETS WITH FACEBOOK

    WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RELATIONSHIP SELLING AND CONVENTIONAL SALES?

    Relationship selling is EXTREMELY CASUAL.

    There is no high pressure or no hype at all, you just basically CONNECTING with people.

    CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE.

    Here are some valuable stats.

    2% of people will enroll on thier first connection or exposure.
    3% of people will enroll on thier second connection or exposure.
    5% of people will enroll on thier third connection or exposure.
    10% of people will enroll on thier fourth connection or exposure.
    80% of people will enroll on thier fifth connection or exposure.

    Most people are not properly trained on how to become top networkers.

    DROP THE BIG HYPE AND FOCUS ON THE RELATIONSHIP AND CONNECTION.

    Get very good at finding things in common and touching base with people.

    Get into the habit of connecting with people.

    This is powerful and will make a huge impact on how you run your business, and how you connect with people and get relationships going.

    FOCUS ON THE RELATIONSHIP AND NOT ON SELLING YOU PRODUCTS.

    The more you focus on the relationship, the more people will ask you what you doing, and they will ask you about your company and your products.

    They will start watching you, they will watch from the sidelines they all of a sudden you will find out

    You will have people signing up for your business on AUTOPILOT.

    HOW TO BUILD RAPPORT FAST.

    This is a rapport-building business model.

    Rapport is finding things in common.

    People like doing business with people that they know, people that they like and trust.

    And they also like to do business with people that they like, or that they aspire to be like.

    START A CONVERSATION AND CONNECT

    F.O.R.M your prospects.

    Talk about these topics to create a connection.

    FAMILY
    OCCUPATION
    RELATIONSHIPS
    MOTIVATION / PASSION / DREAMS

    Get into the habit of getting to know people on a deeper level.

    Really get that connection to get to know people.

    It's not your job to sell or convince, all you need to do is PEEK CURIOSITY and then get out of the way.

    Then ask QUALIFYING QUESTIONS TO SEE IF THERE ARE PROBLEMS TO SOLVE.

    You cant find out someone's problems unless you have a conversation.

    SOMETHING OR SOMEONE OTHER THAN YOU MUST DO THE SELLING - NOT YOU ( Eg..your sales funnel )

    People can go through buyers remorse if they are not the one who asks you for your link.

    BUILD RAPPORT AND ASK QUALIFYING QUESTIONS TO SEE IF THERE IS A NEED - THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO DO FOR THE NETWORKING PORTION.

    Then the rest happens from your links and funnels.

    You can become a millionaire if you can master this yourself and if you can teach and train other people to master this as well.

    QUESTION TO ASK:

    Based upon what you have seen and heard can you see an opportunity here?

    Its a yes or a no.

    There is no emotion attached to networking.

    You have to let the tools do the selling for you, something or someone else.

    LET THE TOOLS DO THE SELLING, NOT YOU!

    Only focus on the relationship and the connection, getting that warm and fuzzy.

    The things you find in common with a person the more they don't even realize them just like you.

    We typically like people that are like us.

    That's how human beings work.

    If you get good at this, you can go from nothing to a multi-millionaire in a very very short period of time.

    BUSINESS IS RELATIONSHIPS.

    The better you get at how to win friends and influence people, the better that you get at relationships, the more money that you will make.

    IT'S NOT YOUR JOB TO SELL OR CONVINCE ANYONE ABOUT ANYTHING.

    Just be the TOUR GUIDE or TRAFFIC CONTROLLER and steer the people to YOUR FUNNEL.

    Then just follow up to see what they like best about what they saw.

    THAT'S IT.

    There is no emotion connected to that.

    HERE IT IS IN 5 EASY STEPS.

    Connect with prospects
    Build Rapport
    Find a few things in common
    Ask qualifying questions
    Get out of the way and let then see your video or funnel.

    THAT'S IT.

    BE MARRIED TO THE PROCESS BUT DIVORCED FROM THE OUTCOME.

    Completely disconnect from the emotion of what the response is.

    This is what it means to be a TOP NETWORKER.

    You can take a brand new newbie and take them to a full time professional in 30 days.

    Most people struggle with this model because they are not properly taught, they are never properly trained on how to become a professional networker.

    ZERO EMOTIONS ATTACHED.

    Put yourself into the mindset that you already making millions a year.

    BUSINESS IS ABOUT CONNECTIONS, RELATIONSHIPS, AND EXPOSURE.

    That's how simple it is.

    If you are emotionally connected from the outcome and are committed to the process.

    GET IN FRONT OF MORE PEOPLE.

    This is not a sales model this is a connection relationship model

    PEOPLE WANT TO JOIN PEOPLE THAT ARE TAPPED INTO THIER POWER.

    They want to follow people into a battle that will lead them into victory.

    All the best!

    You are just one funnel away

We were going to go on youtube in the spring, but with the new COPPA rules, we decided to stay away from youtube and go with podcasting. Lots of our readers(our=my wife and me at Kool Kat Health) were requesting a podcast/audio. Our blog has only been online since August and we thought about doing podcasts when we started, but we wanted to make sure it would be worth the time to do it--really encouraging to see our readers wanted us to do it
