One of the questions that I get frequently from my subscribers who are just getting started in building there online business is…
What are some of the best ways that I can use to start generating traffic to my website?
In this post I’m going to cover 4 of my personal favorite ways on how you can drive more traffic to your website for free starting today.
There are a number of effective strategies that you can use to drive traffic to your website for free. There is social media that a lot of people refer to when getting started. But unless you have built up a following. Social Media can be a bit slow unless you have a big budget to spend on paid adverting on these sits.
So I have listed these four free ways in this post to help out beginners who have a low budget when getting started.
Free Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Website #1
Article Marketing is a slow process but can be a very effective way over time to drive free traffic to your website. The more people who share your articles the more exposure your website will get.
Here are my top three article marketing directories you can use to get started in.
Quick Tip: I would start off with Ezine Articles first. Ezine Articles has a lot of pull so when you get your article approved on there site. I would then move on to the other article sites and post your article there.
Do I Need To Join Several Article Directory Sites To Get Free Traffic To My Website?
It all depends on how much time and effort you want to put in to using this type of marketing strategy. If you have more time the money then why not join several of these sites and place your articles on them. The more articles you have the more traffic you can receive from them.
Free Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Website #2
There are a ton of forum sites that you can join. To find more then just the one I mention below, is do a Google search for forum sites.
My favorite one is WarriorForum.com
Do I Need To Join A Lot Of Forum Sites To Increase My Website Traffic?
Not necessarily. The more forum sites you join the more exposure you will get. But, one thing you need to keep in mind, is that the more sites you join you will need to attend to them daily and reach out to people and build up your following just like with social media. You will need to stay active on these sites.
Free Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Website #3
Traffic Exchanges are great to market your business. There are hundreds of thousands of people who use these sites to market there business. For best results use your landing page and offer a freebie to grow your list.
These are my top traffic exchange sites.
Do I need To Join A Lot Of These Traffic Exchange Sites To Get Free Traffic To My Website?
The more sites you join the more people will see your offer. However keep in mind that the more you join the more time consuming it can become considering it can take you 1 to 2 hours daily to login to your gmail accounts and start clicking for credits. You have to click on emails that you receive from these sites from other members like yourself to earn credits. You need these credits in order to send out your email ad to other members and this can become a pain in the butt.
The eight I mention above have shown me the best results and I have tracked a lot of them witch brings me to another point. Make sure you keep track of the unique clicks you are receiving from these sites.
I use a tool called HitsConnect.com to keep track. It’s free to join however, if your serous I highly recommend you upgrade. Keeping track will help you to determine witch sites are giving you clicks and witch ones are not. If you are receiving low click through rates. I would delete your account from any sites that are showing you less then 20% click throw rates.
