How To Get Traffic To Your Website
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are just starting out with internet marketing then you will quickly learn that there is really no great secret to being successful with your business. The bottom line is you can have the greatest product or service in the world, and even set up the nicest website on the internet, but it does not mean a thing. Because being successful online really just boils down to one thing.

And it can be summed up in one word.

TRAFFIC!

Traffic is the lifeblood of any business, whether it is an online business or a bricks and mortar business like a restaurant.

You have more than likely heard the old saying when it comes to a business that location is everything. Location...location...location.

The reason is obvious. If a business owner has a great location then that means he has more exposure to potential customers. It could be that the business is located at a busy intersection that thousands of cars pass through every day. Or maybe they have a business in a busy shopping center or mall where there is lots of foot traffic and thousands of people walk by daily.

And for an internet business it is just as important to get high quality targeted traffic,

There are many different ways to obtain traffic online as follows:

  • Pay-Per-Click
  • Pay-Per-View
  • Blogging
  • Article Marketing
  • Search Engine Optimization
  • Video Marketing
  • Traffic Exchanges
  • Email Campaigns
  • Social Networking

Used properly every single one of these methods will work.

When I started out in internet marketing I was a big Pay-Per-Click guy because I wanted immediate results and there is no quicker way to get highly targeted traffic than with Pay-Per-Click advertising. However, as you may have heard, there is usually a big learning curve in the beginning with Pay-Per-Click and losing money initially is not uncommon.

I stuck with it and eventually was pretty good, often using it to create nice net profits each month for my business.

But over time, I started developing free traffic methods, and those have proven to be effective over time as well.

Currently, my favorite method for getting highly targeted traffic is via the social networks Twitter and Facebook.

And the main reason I love social networking is because of the viral power that these networks have built within their platforms.

Send out a Tweet and it gets sent to all your Followers. If any of your Followers retweet it then that gets sent to all their Followers.

Facebook works similarly. Post a link to your Wall and all your friends see it. If they "Like" your link then it gets sent to all their friends and so on.

And this can be utilized whether you are marketing an affiliate product or a local business.

So learn to use the power of the social networks to increase your exposure and get more traffic to your website(s).
