There are so many ways to get targeted online traffic to your website and it all starts with you and the product or service you have to offer. Of course it doesn’t matter what it is but whatever it is you do have to promote it to be any kind of success. So, you have your product or service now what?
Three words: Promotion, promotion, promotion. You need to promote your product or service and your website. Setting up your website was the easy part. Now you have to find ways to promote it. If you are like most people who are starting an online business you probably do not have much of a budget so to find your targeted online traffic you will have to be creative and do the right things to get ranked high on the search engines’ results pages.
This is very doable and will not cost you much at all, just a little of your time. The first thing you need to know about is keywords. They are called keywords for a reason. Keywords are the ‘key’ to getting that targeted traffic you need to your website. Keywords are the words or phrases people type into the search bar when they are looking for something online. If you have your website optimized with some of the keywords that people are using then you will rank the highest on the search engine results page and people will come to you for what they need.
Those keyword phrases? They are called long-tailed keywords and are like little gems if you can find one. They will get the most targeted traffic to your site. They are used by people who know exactly what it is they want and so they type in those exact words. If you get your hands on one of these long-tailed keywords and no one else is using it…just imagine the possibilities! Sales would go through the roof.
Other ways to get the targeted traffic you want is to write articles and submit them to article directories. Use the same keywords in your articles to connect back to your website. If you can’t write then hire someone who can. This is a very important step so do not just blow it off if you do not consider yourself a writer. If you do not have the budget to hire someone to write your articles then you will have to learn how to do it yourself.
It isn’t hard to write a 500 word article. I will tell you a little secret, if you look around at other articles out there you will be surprised and appalled at the lack of quality content of other article writers. You will soon be so confident in your writing ability that you will consider your articles much better than what is out there.
Make a video selling your product or service. Once again if you are camera shy, hire someone to be your representative in front of the camera. If you don’t know how to make a video then hire it out as well. Keep it professional and you will soon reap the benefits of increased targeted online traffic to your website and hopefully increased sales.
