How Are You Driving Free Traffic?

Being one of those hot button topics that won’t lie down I wanted to revisit Driving Free Traffic to your website or blog and not just any traffic as lots of hits means nothing unless that traffic converts

Now of course this brings us back to the issue of is Driving Free Traffic really free at all? by that I mean how much time do we spend doing it and how much is our time worth?

So with a cost at least in time Driving Free Traffic is part of what we do in our overall strategy lets see how that investment can pay off best

First of all developing relationships online is a great way of Driving Free Traffic, becoming part of a Tribe of blogs each constructively commenting on each others sites, it needs to be structured and everybody must keep their end of the bargain otherwise it quickly breaks down

Now why would Tribes work as a way of Driving Free Traffic? two reasons really, first is social proof that others in your niche value what you write about and secondly there are always going to be a backbone of 15 to 20 comments on any one subject thus creating a buzz when you read the post and then scan through the comments

Now you may be thinking how do comments help in Driving Free Traffic, simple really how many times have you read a blog post, scanned down the comments and found yourself on another blog which you now visit regularly, it started with curiosity but the quality of what you saw draws you back regularly

Outsourcing Is A Great Way Of Driving Free Traffic

Sounds like a bold statement but Outsourcing as a way of Driving Free Traffic makes perfect sense in the days of micro outsourcing sites, I touched on the value of these sites in my post on Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage on DEC 6 and on my post on Micro Outsourcing itself on DEC 3

If you study these sites and you can get the key site details on the DEC 3 post you will see many opportunities for Driving Free Traffic or next to no cost and by that I mean $4-$5 Dollars, the money you spend on a coffee without giving it a second thought,an example here I will send your message to my 130,000 twitter followers, 8 Times In 24 Hours for $4 Dollars

Now this truly is a way of Driving Free Traffic to your site, a word of caution however, a quick e mail to confirm their niche is needed, some actually tell you what theirs is in advance

A further scan through these sites provides countless ways of Driving Free Traffic or near free traffic to your sites, with services such as backlinking, SEO services, directory submission and the list goes on and remember many of these services are very time intensive

Now we know in the end that our time is better spent building relationships but we can’t avoid some of the other stuff that gets us noticed and therefore makes us money, now you can release your time at a very low cost, I see this as a real win,win

Using Software for Driving Free Traffic

The holy grail of Driving Free Traffic, the 7 click ATM method, you’ve all seen the subject lines and we’ve all bought one or two of these, were they selling something radically new, in many cases no but what they were selling was a form of automation and that’s the lesson we must take out of this

You see when it comes to various forms of submission there is a piece of software just waiting to take the strain for you, be it directory,rss feeds,social bookmarking they just make Driving Free Traffic easier, just make sure you have quality content, they will create a spike of traffic, your pillar content will keep them coming back

The various plugins that you can get for your blog for people to like or bookmark your site help in Driving Free Traffic, the best ones out there are the Facebook like button, the Facebook & Twitter share buttons and the Sexy Bookmarks plugin that puts a series of bookmark buttons under your blog post

Over and above those are two others that you really need to consider, one is the Onlywire plugin which sends your content link to 31 Social Bookmarking sites including all of the big ones like Digg, Delicious, Mixx, Twitter, Facebook and the smaller ones as well a great way of Driving Free Traffic

The second of my two is the Pingler plugin, another great way of Driving Free Traffic and building backlinks and pingbacks from high authority sites

So with a little bit of lateral thinking this is a great strategy, truly free traffic doesn’t exist, each has some cost but often not that much, so I’d like to hear your comments, how you do it, what strategies you use for Driving Free Traffic
