3 Ways to Increase Your Social Media Traffic

by tiroberts 166 replies
Hi Warriors,

I know there's many newbies who are interested in getting more traffic from social media. I personally am a HUGE fan of social media traffic and I've used it heavily to build up my blog traffic. In fact, social media helped me generate 8,500+ visitors to my blog in only 34 days.

So, if your having trouble driving traffic through social media, I want to share with you 3 tips that should help you see a spike in your traffic stats this week.

1.) Cackle - this is a fantastic wordpress comment plugin I use on my blog that has been responsible for sending me a typhoon of Facebook traffic. This commenting system basically allows your visitors to post comments to your blog and it automatically cross posts the comment to their social network status, including Facebook, Twiiter, and Google+ to name a few.

So for example: If you have cackle installed on your blog and I comment on your post saying how informative and helpful it was, the comment that I leave on your post will automatically post as my Facebook status update with a link pointing back to your blog post, bringing you more exposure and traffic from my network of Facebook friends. This is extremely powerful and is a wonderful way to drive tons of Facebook traffic to your website, plus get more engagement and interaction on your own Facebook page.

2.) Visibli - This is a quick and easy way to see a visible spike in your social media stats TODAY with hardly any extra effort.

Visibli is a neat little tool that helps you to retain the visitors after you share an external link. For example: Say that you want to share an interesting blog post with your following on Twitter. You can share the link via this service and when a person clicks on it, they'll be taken to the external link you shared but at the top of the page they will see a personalized toolbar with YOUR information on it.

This is really cool because it's sort of like they're taking your site with them around the net. This is a great way to be social and share others people information while still pointing them back to your blog site, thus creating more traffic for yourself and retaining your readers.

Quick Note: When you're creating your personal Visibli bar, you want to make sure that your bar has the same look and feel as your blog does. You want to create a feel of the reader browsing content within your personal framework and it'll increase the chances of them returning to your blog.


3.) Connecting with influencers - In my book, this is THE most effective way to get a TON of social media traffic. By connecting with influencers in your niche that already have a large following, you can leverage them for traffic, plus build long-term beneficial relationships that could lead to future endeavors such as potential JV's and affiliate opportunities.

One of the easiest ways to do this and the way that I did this when I relaunched my blog was to do a Top 7 or Top 10 blog post highlighting the top influencers in my niche. You can see an example of this here.

What you want to do is a roundup of the best tips that you've learned from these influeners, maybe some great content creation tips, traffic tips or marketing strategies. Compile them all into a blog post with pictures of the influencers, the tips that you've learned from them, links pointing back to their blog (or the specific post you learned the tip from), and a link pointing to their Twitter page. You can even take this a step further by adding a quote from one of their blog posts. This will show the influencer that you've really done your homework and that you value their insights.

After you've created your post and it's live, you want to reach out to the influencers and let them know about your post and that you've included them in it. Reach out to them thorough email, and all the social networks that you can find them on - mainly Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

When you email them you want to let them know how much you appreciate them and their content. Let them know how they've helped you, mentioning specific posts of theirs that you found especially helpful. Then, you want to let them know that you've included them in your top 7 or top 10 post and leave them the link to check it out.

You don't want to blatantly ask for them to share your post with their networks. They will usually naturally share your post with their networks because you've included them and you've gone the extra mile to connect with them on a deeper level. To make this even more effective, before doing your top influencers post, you can begin commenting and interacting with them on their blogs and on the social networks - sharing and retweeting their posts. This will aid you in getting on their radar as well and they'll remember you when you reach out to them with your post.

For those of your looking for quick and effective ways to tap into social media traffic, I hope you found this post helpful.

If you have any other quick and effective social media traffic tips or suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

See ya' around the net!

    1) Cackle

    I don't like commenting sites that are tied to my social media accounts. If I want to post to them, I will. I sure don't want sites posting my thoughts on articles I don't want them to. If I see a site that has that commenting option, I won't leave a comment. Plain and simple.

    2) Visibli

    I used them for a while and they worked nice, until I noticed they started double posting everything I linked to in my Twitter feed. Then I wasn't happy and turned it off. Went back to Bit.ly and Hootsuite stats.

    3) Connecting with influencers

    This is the one solid idea of the bunch. Good points and way to approach them.

      I feel the same way. I know that some people like using their Facebook login as a way to post comments because it saves them time/the hassle of creating a new account but I prefer to keep them separate. It's worth a try to see how your own audience responds but you might be better off with the usual name/email/website field in the end.

    Using Influencers is the best tip here - especially if you form a related group for your niche, that way you can use each other to build the traffic.

    @rolough - Interviews is a fantastic way to do top 7 or top 10 posts. Interviews is like getting an added bonus of free coaching from some of your niches top influencers. It's a double wammy ;-)

    @ravi1234 - Thanks for sharing your 3 tips. I like to create what I call pillar posts - long posts packed to the brim with valuable content that over delivers. These type of posts have a natural viral nature and will get shared quickly on the social networks. So, make sure that the content that you're creating and sharing is really world class. Plus, adding loads are pictures always helps to make your content more entertaining and interactive!

    @taylormarek and @CharlieMain - Yes! Building relationships with influencers has always been the best way to drive laser targeted traffic. A lot of newbies fail to realize this and it's sad because they'll give up too easily. My philosophy is that if you put as much time into building relationships with influencers as you do on SEO and building backlinks, you'll always come out on top. Because when Google decides to have a mood swing and your rankings drop, you still have your relationships to fall back on for traffic and other business building ventures.

    @taylormarek - I can understand that some people don't like cross posting systems. I find them extremely effective in my goal of getting social traffic so I think that I'll be continuing to use them for a while. I know most bloggers us a dofollow commenting system and I think they're great too. It all just depends on what your aim is and whats working best for you. I don't find that I'm lacking in my commenting interaction and I think that my interaction is pretty good. I may change up later on down this line but I'm happy for now .

    That's interesting about Visibli double posting. I haven't heard of it doing that till now. Thanks for sharing your experience with it.

    To the rest of you, I'm glad you guy's found these tips helpful and I hope they work well for you!

      I also liked swatiths comment below. I tend to like content syndication more. If you simply setup your blog to autosyndicate to social media sites you will also get more traffic from the socail sites, get automatic authority backlinks and this will improve your chances of ranking as well - organic traffic. So use of social media will also increase your chances of ranking, therefore you get social media traffic inherent in the SM sites plus organic traffic.

        Roberts,

        Thank you very much for sharing this with us. We are well aware of social media's help in promoting our websites and driving traffic to it, but most of the time, we only use Facebook, Twitter, and the like. You know, those that are highly publicized and widely used. It is refreshing to learn about other sites that I, personally, haven't tried yet. Thanks again.

  • Aloha Ti! I like your "Connecting with Influencers" tip. This is EXACTLY what I called this strategy when I started teaching it in 2008. This just goes to show that great minds think alike

    You've dialed in on one of the MOST critical steps to social media success. I'll take it a step further and say that you don't need to just connect with the Influencers, converse with them. Comment on their stuff. Even if they're too busy to respond (or don't want to), their followers will start paying attention to you...then they become your followers

    @swatiths - Thanks for sharing such a great list of other ways to drive traffic! I appreciate your input.

    @BrianCampbelldotcom - Yes, connecting, interacting and engaging with influencers is THE most critical part on building a successful blog and online business. I agree, you should definitely seek to do more than just connect, go deeper and do full fledged engagement with them. Blog commenting is one of the top ways to do this and is exactly what I've done to build relationships. This will certainly set you apart from others, get you on their radar and ultimately do wonders for your traffic.

    @BarbaraMcKinney - Thanks for your response. Yes, it does take some effort to connect with influencers, but it's not impossible. Like @dukerutherford mentioned, it's all about having patience. I'd also like to mention that you must have persistence, creativity and a commitment to producing quality information as well. That last one is extremely important. Even if you do get a influencers attention through interaction and blog commenting, if you're not consistently producing quality content, you definitely won't stay in their circle long.

    @BacklinksPlus - Glad you want to connect further with me. I don't use skype much. But I do use Google chat quite a bit. It'll be easier to get a hold of me through email. So if you have any further questions, just shoot me a email to: tiroberts1986@gmail.com. I'll response as soon as I can.

    @smartbiz38129 - I was using Cackle in lieu of commentluv. However, I've just recently changed my commenting system over to Disqus. I'm sure you've seen this commenting system around on other blogs. I had some issues with Cackle. Like I mentioned, it's a fantastic system for driving social traffic, but the issues I began to encounter wasn't worth the headache. Plus, according to the feedback of my readers, making the switch to a system like Disqus was a better move for me.

    Disqus has the same capability for cross posting to social networks that I love, but it's not as technically complicated and it allows your commenters to link directly back to their websites rather then their social profile. I would suggest you take a look at both commenting systems and figure out which one would better suite you and your specific needs.

    As far as commentluv is concerned. I haven't yet used that system and I'm not sure if I will. For the time being, Disqus is meeting my needs perfectly.

    Thanks everyone for your responses and awesome feedback. I really appreciate it!

    Hi Ti,

    Great post! I was debating whether to go with Disqus or CommentLuv and ultimately ended up with the latter. I just loved the potential I saw with CommentLuv whenever I would make a comment on a blog using it. Once I read all of the features on their site and all of the reviews from people like Ileane over at BasicBlogTips.com, I was sold. I think I made a good choice for my blog.

    Thanks for your feedback everyone!

    @dawala and @MakeMoneyNinja - I've recently changed my commenting system over to the Disqus commenting system. I like this system much better than Cackle. I had some issues with Cackle, but I wouldn't completely dismiss it. The Disqus system pretty much lets you do the same things that cackle does, just with less complications. And I've found that I'm getting a TON more traffic from using the Disqus system.

    I suggest you test out both systems you're considering, track your stats and see which one you feel works best for you.

    Meh, Cackle isn't going to make a lick of difference for 99% of the blogs owned people on this forum. It's one of those things that sounds good on paper but ends up being crickets chirping in practice because so few people get comments on their blogs to begin with. Add to that that few people on FB are going to care enough to a) read the comment and b) actually visit your site from reading the shared comment (CTR on FB to external sites are horrendously low) and you have very little traffic coming to your site.

    Visibli is gimmicky and will just irritate people.

    As for influencers, they have a gazillion wanna-be social media people chomping at their ankles with mindless post after mndless post. Unless you know how to create really good viral content, they won't care about you - and often influencers will upload, rather than share your stuff, resulting in little recognition to you. Plus, and this is the biggie, the traffic often sucks because it's not targeted enough from the influencer's page. For example, in my industry there are a few FB pages with 250k+ fans that have shared my stuff. I've gotten about 2k fans out of it. But guess what? Those fans suck because they're not targeted enough. It's tough to find the level of targetted fans necessary from big, influential pages because their fan base is so large.

      I don't think that connecting with and writing about influencers is a bad way to go at all. If you do it right and build up at least a bit of a relationship with them, you can really do well over time. It helped me a great deal, I have to say...and I did it well before coming here and seeing the OP's post.

      No matter what, people are still people...and they like to be celebrated. If you do it right, you'll increase your traffic by doing it.

    Thanks for the list. Just installed Cackle for a demo go. I'll see how it goes.

    Tried Visibli for my blog, but didn't care for it. It forces new sites in same window. My biggest concern is where I reference sites in my sources, the link appears to be an iframe which doesn't legitimately reference the site. I didn't try it from my social media because I seldom link out to other sites.

    I really appreciate the suggestions though - always learn something here.

    Hi Ti,

    Thanks a whole million for such a very, very helpful post.

    I am only now trying to learn how to be a part of the social
    media phenomenon. In spite of so much information available
    on the web, I still have not been able to fully understand, just
    yet, what it is all about.

    I know someone reading my post is almost gasping for air..
    because they just6 cannot believe that anyone, especially here in
    the United States, is not a part of this great source interaction :-)

    Anyways, once again, thank you ever so much, Ti. Your post has
    encouraged me to beginning this awesome journey.

    Thanks again.

    Alodie

    Hi Warriors,

    I know there's many newbies who are interested in getting more traffic from social media. I personally am a HUGE fan of social media traffic and I've used it heavily to build up my blog traffic. In fact, social media helped me generate 8,500+ visitors to my blog in only 34 days.

    So, if your having trouble driving traffic through social media, I want to share with you 3 tips that should help you see a spike in your traffic stats this week.

    1.) Cackle - this is a fantastic wordpress comment plugin I use on my blog that has been responsible for sending me a typhoon of Facebook traffic. This commenting system basically allows your visitors to post comments to your blog and it automatically cross posts the comment to their social network status, including Facebook, Twiiter, and Google+ to name a few.

    So for example: If you have cackle installed on your blog and I comment on your post saying how informative and helpful it was, the comment that I leave on your post will automatically post as my Facebook status update with a link pointing back to your blog post, bringing you more exposure and traffic from my network of Facebook friends. This is extremely powerful and is a wonderful way to drive tons of Facebook traffic to your website, plus get more engagement and interaction on your own Facebook page.

    2.) Visibli - This is a quick and easy way to see a visible spike in your social media stats TODAY with hardly any extra effort.

    Visibli is a neat little tool that helps you to retain the visitors after you share an external link. For example: Say that you want to share an interesting blog post with your following on Twitter. You can share the link via this service and when a person clicks on it, they'll be taken to the external link you shared but at the top of the page they will see a personalized toolbar with YOUR information on it.

    This is really cool because it's sort of like they're taking your site with them around the net. This is a great way to be social and share others people information while still pointing them back to your blog site, thus creating more traffic for yourself and retaining your readers.

    Quick Note: When you're creating your personal Visibli bar, you want to make sure that your bar has the same look and feel as your blog does. You want to create a feel of the reader browsing content within your personal framework and it'll increase the chances of them returning to your blog.


    3.) Connecting with influencers - In my book, this is THE most effective way to get a TON of social media traffic. By connecting with influencers in your niche that already have a large following, you can leverage them for traffic, plus build long-term beneficial relationships that could lead to future endeavors such as potential JV's and affiliate opportunities.

    One of the easiest ways to do this and the way that I did this when I relaunched my blog was to do a Top 7 or Top 10 blog post highlighting the top influencers in my niche. You can see an example of this here.

    What you want to do is a roundup of the best tips that you've learned from these influeners, maybe some great content creation tips, traffic tips or marketing strategies. Compile them all into a blog post with pictures of the influencers, the tips that you've learned from them, links pointing back to their blog (or the specific post you learned the tip from), and a link pointing to their Twitter page. You can even take this a step further by adding a quote from one of their blog posts. This will show the influencer that you've really done your homework and that you value their insights.

    After you've created your post and it's live, you want to reach out to the influencers and let them know about your post and that you've included them in it. Reach out to them thorough email, and all the social networks that you can find them on - mainly Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

    When you email them you want to let them know how much you appreciate them and their content. Let them know how they've helped you, mentioning specific posts of theirs that you found especially helpful. Then, you want to let them know that you've included them in your top 7 or top 10 post and leave them the link to check it out.

    You don't want to blatantly ask for them to share your post with their networks. They will usually naturally share your post with their networks because you've included them and you've gone the extra mile to connect with them on a deeper level. To make this even more effective, before doing your top influencers post, you can begin commenting and interacting with them on their blogs and on the social networks - sharing and retweeting their posts. This will aid you in getting on their radar as well and they'll remember you when you reach out to them with your post.

    For those of your looking for quick and effective ways to tap into social media traffic, I hope you found this post helpful.

    If you have any other quick and effective social media traffic tips or suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

    See ya' around the net!

    Ti

    These is a great list. I also recommend that if our website or business is already making money, you can allocate a portion of your income for investing in paid advertising, like Google Adwords or Facebook ads. It's one easy way to get relevant and targeted traffic if you have the money.

    Thanks for the insightful post. This is social networking at it's best, going out of your way to establish a real bond with another person on the net, someone in your niche who is an influencer and has the power to persuade others in your direction. Joining up with powerful influencers in this way is a guaranteed way to ensure you reach others who would ordinarily be out of your sphere.

    Social media is something I have neglected over the past few years, so I thank you for your advice. I have been searching for good ways to increase my Twitter following and have found some very useful and interesting methods! Do you think that using hashtags in all of your tweets will help bring new followers?

    Thank you for the great tips.

    If somebody posted a negative comment on your blog, can you still delete the negative comment BEFORE it automatically post on Facebook, Twitter and Google +?
