How To Be A Traffic Building Superstar

Once you have created your Internet marketing strategy and plan, it’s time to execute this plan and start to build traffic to your website. In order to get a steady and constant flow of traffic to your website, you will need to use many different forms of online content, have relevant information leading viewers back to your website and be everywhere online.

Forms of Online Content

There are many different content types to choose from: videos, blog posts, articles, social media, social bookmarking, emails marketing and directory submissions. You should try to position your website so it appears in many different forms of content in order to appeal to the many different types of people in your target market.

If you are unsure of which type of content to start with, why not start with something you enjoy doing (because you will be doing a lot of it). If you enjoy writing, then try blogging or writing articles about your business and services. If you like showing off your creativity then maybe creating whiteboard animation videos is more your style.

Whatever content type you choose, make sure that you come up with a plan that will help you get many videos, articles, blog posts etc., out there as possible so you have a better chance of getting ranked in the search engines and building traffic to your website.

Relevant Information = Quality Traffic

When writing your content or making your videos, it’s important that your content is relevant to what your traffic is searching for. In order to build good quality traffic, you will need to make sure that your content is relevant and provides helpful information to your viewers.

You will need to appear as though you are an expert in your industry and your viewers should trust you. In order to know what your customers want from you, you will need to do some keyword research and see what questions your target market need answered and what types of information they are searching for online.

If you can help answer their questions and provide them with help and benefits, they will be more likely to click on your website and keep coming back for updates or come to you with questions about your products and services.

Be Everywhere Online

It’s not enough to have just a few articles on one site. Try using different article sites to post the articles to, but remember that Google and other search engines don’t like duplicate content. You will need to write a lot of unique and relevant content, that relates to your niche so that you can build traffic from multiple sites.

Use social media to help build your brand and spread the word about your business. Some of the most popular social networking sites right now are Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Pick one social media network to start with and post relevant tips and helpful information. Once in a while, include a promo, coupon or some type of incentive that will help you get more traffic to your website.

As you build your following on your social networking sites, the more helpful tips you post, the more traffic you will get to your website. Remember to not always sell but be helpful. A good rule for status updates is to post relevant, how-to, tips, quotes or funny information 80% of the time, and only promote your products or services 20% of the time.

Call-to-Action

When you put out your quality and highly relevant content, you need to make sure that you have a call-to-action at the end of your content so your viewers know where to go next. In order to get more traffic, it would be helpful if you added a benefit to your call-to-action at the end of your content so that the viewer will be more inclined to check out your website to see what you are offering.

Some good call-to-actions include:

Do you want more helpful tips from us? Subscribe to our blog!
Do you want to see more awesome videos about _________ subscribe to our YouTube Channel!
Need some free tips on ______? Check out our website here!

Using different forms of content, posting relevant content, being everywhere online and using call-to actions will help you build a steady flow of quality traffic to your website and help you convert that traffic into buyers of your products and services.
