Having started two online businesses, just over two years ago, getting website traffic is still a number one priority for me. Both my businesses are based on an affiliate marketing model, so I can have all the monetization tools I want on my website, but without traffic they are completely useless and won’t generate any money for me.
Don’t get me wrong, you can also drive traffic to your website using paid advertising, and/or sharing links all over social media. However, what I would say is the online space is becoming ever more crowded and it costs more to succeed here – i.e. you have to be doing it better and slicker than almnost everyone else to succeed. This is possible, but you need to know what you’re doing or you can end up tipping a whole load of cash into a black hole for very little return.
I don’t think anything will replace good quality content, aimed at helping other people, on a website. The website itself needs to be built up over time, and be refreshed often with new content, especially for organic movement up the search engine rankings. This takes time! Both my sites are being fleshed out with new pages and posts, which helps show the search engines the sites are active and worth showing more often.
But how do you start getting traffic, while you continue to build out a website? I came across this article on Jeffbullas’s Blog and it explains the whole concept of traffic and where it comes from really well. So I’m sharing it here to help anyone who is starting out on their website journey. basically, I couldn’t have said it better myself!
