As a writer, I know how difficult it is to get people to your website. But, if you have a blog there are a few options that you have that can bring more people to your sites. Below are just a few choices:
Start A Newsletter
Some people think that newsletters are just about giving out discount codes and talking about sales. But, essentially a newsletter can send a little reminder to your sign ups that you are still here and your website is still available to them. You can also create a “round up” of blogs that you wrote for the week and send the titles and a description out to your newsletter. If something interests someone they can click a link and voila, they are on your website.
Social Media Profiles
Social media is such an important part, I think, of getting people to your website. I use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc. Again, these are all mediums where you can post content that leads back to your website.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization
Ranking on Google might seem impossible and yet I can honestly say that all of my websites rank very highly on Google, Yahoo, Ask and Bing for different keywords. For one website I have over 100 keywords I rank for and they are all on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd page of these search engines.
Make sure you do keyword research to see exactly what keywords you should or could be using to get people to your website.
Use a plug-in like Yoast to help you see if your density, readability and on-page SEO is all being properly utilized.
Use titles – not too short, not too long!
Don’t spam your keywords! Use them where and when they can be placed organically.
Use Images On Your Blog
If you have a blog or you have a website with a blog, use images and videos whenever possible. For my one website I constantly am using videos and images in my articles and I notice that I get a ton of image search traffic from those images.
Buy Targeted Traffic
I am definitely not one of those people that believes that I can buy 50,000 visitors for $15. But, there are legit websites out there that will allow you to buy targeted traffic at a cost. I used to have one guy I worked with, but over the years the business just sort of shut down quietly. Since then I have been looking for someone else to use. One company I am getting ready to try out now is called Grow Traffic. They have a pricing structure that fits my needs and you can purchase laser targeted traffic – which is important to me because I have 5 websites and they are ALL different niches!
If you are going to buy traffic, then Targeted is definitely going to be your best option. For example, if I buy traffic from Grow Traffic and its just general traffic, I might get a handful of people interested in my Military website. On the other hand, if I can choose people from the US, that are interested in Military niches like clothing, watches, gear, etc and I can choose men and women between the ages of 18 and 36 I would most likely get more people to my website. Not only that, but people that are actually interested in what I am selling.
THAT is why targeted traffic is so important.
Grow Traffic lets you choose from between 10k to 1M targeted visitors. They also let you choose interests such as Art, Boxing, Ebooks, Football, etc. You can also choose how long you want your campaign to go for.
