Website Traffic Building

Being a beginner to website building and Affiliate Marketing, I found many places that boasted ways to help me in my en-devours that just did not help me much. Either their training methods started so far over my head that I was lost before I started,.or all they wanted was money in return for a bunch of stuff I could not read or understand. I was lucky enough to find a place that would take my hand and walk me thorough all the pit falls of website traffic building.

What is website traffic?

Website traffic is the amount of people who visit your website and your potential customers.There are many things a person can do to generate internet traffic. One is article writing. I use this method mainly because I love to write and it is cost effective, which means basically it only requires time. I have started out on a shoestring budget and this method really is effective for getting people to my website without the cost of advertising.

What else works?

Another way I have been getting my stories out to the public is by using social networking. I have found that many of these sites can offer a huge return on your effort of posting your stories to them. I have a friend in my network who is getting viral results every time I pin one of her stories on Pinterest, and she is now doing the same back for me.Blogging is another great way to start out as you can get an online business actually functioning with little cost and great results just by building up a social following.

What if I have never done this before?

I have learned so much lately about failure. It is something in the internet world that just means another way to try something. If you don't fail, you do not succeed. I guess what I mean here is you must not be afraid to try things and learn new ways of doing things.

How long does it take?

As with building any worthwhile business, it does take time and commitment, and having a place where you can go and get all the help you need is priceless.I have found the perfect fit for me in my article writing and website building, and anyone can do this if they are willing to follow directions and spend the time it takes to build an online business.

So if you are looking to generate internet traffic, or boost your website traffic, or just build your blog traffic, you might want to go were I started and get the basics.

Please be more specific: what is the 'place that took your hand and walked you through it'? Is it the same place you go for all the help you need? That is a rare occurance. I never found anything like that; the closest I come to something like that is Copyblogger and/or Hobspot. What is your go-to place?
