If you have an Internet business, or you’re thinking about starting an Internet business, one of the most important things you’ll need is targeted traffic. If you can’t get targeted traffic to your website you will be able to get the exposure you need, believe you need, or the sales that result from that exposure. A lot of people come to me complaining that they can’t make money on the Internet, but the main reason why is the fact that they don’t get enough targeted traffic to their websites. The biggest issue is the fact that a lot of people don’t know what the top techniques to getting traffic to their websites are.
What I would say is probably the number one way to get targeted traffic to your website is by writing each articles and adding them to article directories and to your own personal blog. The Internet is about content, so if you don’t have enough article content online you’re not going to get the targeted traffic that you are looking for. Most of the most visited websites with online have one thing in common, they have the most content. Most of the time content is referred to as articles but content can also be videos as well. In light of this, make a game plan that you will follow consistently and start adding articles to your own website as well as putting them on article directories like e-zine articles.com.
E-mail marketing has been around since the beginning of the Internet but few people really harness its power. If you don’t have your own e-mail list, the best way to get targeted traffic through e-mail is by buying solo ads through other websites and newsletters. If you have a weight loss product or website, all you have to do is go to Google and type in weight loss to find all the weight loss related site that may have e-mail lists. When you look at besides look for things like an opt in form that allows people to join their e-mail list, or an “advertiser here” link. Networking with the right webmasters or website owners can result in a huge influx of targeted traffic coming from e-mails that they send out for you. You can either ask them to split the profits with you, or you can simply pay them for sending out an e-mail for you to their e-mail list.
Over the past 10 years pay per click advertising has become very popular because you are able to show your ads to people write when they’re typing in a search term in the major search engines like Google. So take your time and come up with different search phrases that are relevant to your business so that you can create ads for those terms. There are many major search engines but right now you should focus on signing up for both Google Adwords and Bing. By combining all three forms of advertising above, you will get a consistent flow of targeted traffic and leads to your website.
