“How Are You Generating Traffic”?
Is There Really A Secret To Generating Traffic?
It’s the subject line of so many e mails,The Secret Of Generating Traffic,it’s the lifeblood of an Online business,no Traffic equals no customers,equals no money,it’s that simple really
But is it really difficult to Generate Traffic? well yes and no, sorry to be vague but there is a world of difference between thousands of clicks on your website domain name and dozens of clicks on your order button or names and e mails into your auto responder, for that you need targeted traffic and that’s a whole different animal
We’ve all been offered the opportunity to blast your offer to millions,ever been tempted,of course you have,but then like me you thought about the mass of spam complaints,so that’s not Generating Traffic more like it’s just generating a massive headache, just remember how you feel when all those fake watch and ridiculous claims about male enhancement products show up day in day out,not to impressed are you?
So just Generating Traffic in itself is no use whatsoever,a high Alexa ranking doesn’t pay a single bill,it might massage your ego but it might also get you into hot water,targeted traffic on the other hand want’s to know about your offer,it’s been looking for what you offer
But even Generating Traffic like this isn’t enough unless your offer is compelling, but it’s a start your chance to make a free offer and then to build trust with your new prospect,to demonstrate that you are the real deal in your market
People have become wary of websites that sound to good to be true,it’s been drummed into us from an early age, it it sounds to good to be true it probably is,your job after you have done the job of Generating Traffic is to prove otherwise
So What Are Our Options For Generating Traffic That Is Targeted?
It’s a really important question,what are our options when it comes to Generating Traffic? well if we read all the e mails that arrive in our inbox we are told that Google doesn’t work any more, but contrast that to how many times you use Google or another major search engine and that just gets blown out of the water,I use them all the time in both business and domestic decisions
You see most of the people selling you products for Generating Traffic want you to see some thing shiny and new and therefore buy their product,it doesn’t use any of these methods it says listing all tradition methods known to man,when you open it up however in 99.9% of cases it does use tradition methods, it just dresses them up differently
Now don’t get me wrong,these people need to cut through the clutter and far from all of these products for Generating Traffic are anything other than good,we know that the biggest enemy is people jumping onto the newest shiny thing without actually using what they had before and that never works and it burns money
So do things such as SEO,Keywords,Linkbuilding still work as a way of Generating Traffic in late 2010,you bet your bottom dollar they do,are they slow as we are told,well they are not instant but they last forever once done and yes they need tweaking but they are important parts of site building anyway
But surely Google is banning tens of thousands of sites a week,why go to all this trouble? yes it’s true that Google doesn’t like affiliate based sites,it’s searches are based on relevance and an opt in page isn’t giving detailed information,a lot of people have had their adwords campaigns closed but that really is a different issue
So in essence Generating Traffic from traditional organic traffic is as relevant now as it ever was, in fact as adwords now accounts for just 8% of traffic you could argue it’s more relevant today than it’s ever been
What About Generating Traffic At The Push Of A Button? Can It Really Be Done?
Ah yes the pushbutton way of Generating Traffic,all your problems solved in a few clicks then into your Ferrari and down to the beach,ever heard that story,sounds nice but does it have a basis in truth,well again yes and no,can you the new guy or girl generate $186,927.42 in a week no but you can get things moving a whole lot faster
Many of the pushbutton ways of Generating Traffic use paid methods and there’s nothing wrong with that,paid traffic is highly targeted,it’s looking for what you are offering but Caveat Emptor [Buyer Beware for those of you not familiar with Latin] it can empty your bank account faster than a cute croupier on a table in Las Vegas
Of course you need to know your conversion rates and using a little bit of paid traffic will help you establish those numbers, just don’t go mad on this way of Generating Traffic until you know your Return On Investment,once you know your ROI you can roll it out on a much bigger scale
So if Google Adwords only attracts a small percentage of traffic what other ways of Generating Traffic that is truly targeted are there,well there are quite a few actually,let’s delve in and take a look
When we read about pushbutton ways of Generating Traffic we are often using demographics and there are many great demographics tools out there,two of them are attached to very powerful ways of Generating Traffic,lets take a closer look at one of them Demographics Tool
