A website is nothing more than a billboard in the dessert unless you have a strategy for driving traffic.

Driving traffic is easier than you think but it does require some thinking and work.

ASSUMPTION: You are offering something people are already looking for; you are converting visitors into buyers and you are ready to drive more traffic.

Here are three ways of driving traffic:

  1. Buy Traffic
  2. Borrow Traffic
  3. Build Traffic

1. Buy Traffic – is essentially advertising.  You can purchase banners, pay per click ads, pay per action ads, banner ads, ezine ads, classified, and a whole host of others types of advertising.

2. Borrow Traffic – is leveraging other peoples traffic.

3. Build Traffic – through SEO and SMO you can build traffic through search engines.  There are several components to this and a well thought out strategy is worth while!

To build traffic you have to look at both the on-page and off-page strategies.  SEO – Search Engine Optimization is one of the fundamentals for getting found.  It doesn’t carry a lot of weight but you have the foundation.

Off-page optimization includes backlinks, social media, articles, videos, blogs, social bookmarking, etc.  Putting together a strategy that will give you the best return for your efforts will save you a lot of time in the long run.

Back to blogs next post. They are a critical piece of the strategy.

Make Money Online – How Do I Get My Website Found?

Posted on 28 January 2009 by Linda Joseph

Make Money Online
How Do I Drive More Visitors (Traffic)
to My Website?

I have not had a single client who has not asked this question!

I have to start off with a question: Who is you market?I want more Traffic!
Can you describe your ideal visitor?
Do you know what he/she is looking for?

The sad thing is, most website owners can’t tell you!
If you don’t know your market or your audience, it is hard to attract visitors who want what you offer!

When you come into our membership area, the first thing I have you do is make sure your understand your market, audience and offer.  You list the keywords you want to target to reach your market. 

Then we look at traffic generation strategies.

Before you waste a lot of time and money on a website or blog, make sure you know who you want and have a good reason for them to visit your site versus the other million sites.

Make Money Online – Secrets

NOTE:  Jimmy D. Brown is a highly successful Internet marketing that stays out of the limelight.   I have bought most of his products and listen to what he recommends.  Here is an article I have permission to use on my blog.

The Real Secret To Building A High-Profit Internet Business

By Jimmy D. Brown

My wife laughs every time she sees me doing it.

At least once or twice every week, I’ll be at my desk (or at the dining room table) with my Franklin Covey planner open and a stack of laminated checklists in hand.

“What are you doing, honey?” she calls, already knowing the answer.

“I’m planning”, I reply with a smile.

She laughs and I get back to work.

She laughs because she swears I spend half of my time “planning”. But, if you ask me how I’m able to get as much work done as I do in only 3 hours a day, I’ll point to a black Franklin Covey planner with about a dozen laminated checklists inside.

Building an Internet business is easy. Seriously. I’m not saying that it’s not complicated, because it is. I’m just saying that it’s easy to accomplish if you just have a system in place.

There’s very little in this world that can’t be accomplished with the right set of action steps in front of you.

Today, I’m going to give you such a system for building your Internet business. There are only 4 steps…

1. Decide What You Want To Do.
Do you want to run an eBay(R) business? Be an affiliate marketer? Buy and sell reprint rights? Get involved in niche marketing? While all of those things will likely find their way into your plan in time, you gotta begin with one thing at a time.

My recommendation: Choose a “broad” topic you are interested in and begin building a list of folks interested in that topic.

2. Determine A Weekly Action Plan.
After you decide what you want to do, it’s time to determine how to get it done. What I do is this: I create a weekly set of action steps. That is, I have a set of things I do on Monday, on Tuesday, and so forth. Decide how many hours (as little as ONE) you want to work each day and schedule yourself a reasonable amount of things to get done in that time frame. Repeat this process week after week.

My recommendation: Begin writing ezine articles to promote your list … and affiliate programs. It’s the easiest way to get free traffic and build your list at the same time.

3. Devote Yourself To Staying On Schedule.
The important thing here is to stick to it. The easiest way that I know of to make certain you develop discipline in your schedule is to NOT set unrealistic expectations. Give yourself ample time to do each day’s action step – don’t overschedule. Look for progress along the way to celebrate. Reward yourself when you’ve reached a milestone. And, remember, you’re GROWING a business. Just like physical growth, it takes time … it WILL happen if you remain committed.

My recommendation: Weave in simple activities related to the following categories – List building (ezine articles), product creation(conduct interviews or hire ghostwriters), site development (making your site convert more visitors into buyers),and education (continuing to learn new ways to grow your business).

4. Develop Additional Shortcuts.
As you get better and better at working with your lists, creating products and tweaking your site, you’ll want to continue to improve your business with new ideas, strategies, tools, and resources. The key is simple: never stop learning!

My recommendation: Visit forums. Read articles. Download reports. Identify sites and resources that CONTRIBUTE to your success in educating you. You want faster results, bigger increases, automated processes, and other ways to get more accomplished and more profit, with less work involved.

Everything depends on your developing a plan and sticking to it.

And that is the REAL secret to building a high-profit Internet business!

Believe it or not, there is a tremendous “operations manual” that you can download right here at SR Zone to help you create a plan that works for YOU.

Check out “Homepreneur Habits: How To Run A Successful Home Business ”  You’ll learn all the tools you need, how to setup your work space and how to create a day-by-day schedule of recommended activities to start and grow your business.
