The more traffic you have, the bigger your bottom line. Whether you’re launching a new product or just want a quick influx of cash, sometimes you need tons of traffic quickly. Here are 5 fast solutions to drive traffic to your website.
#1 Social media. Social media works quickly particularly if you have a large following on any of the social media sites. You can generate a ton of traffic to your website quickly with a single Tweet. The key is to create attention-grabbing posts that arouse curiosity, make people laugh or stir up a controversy. You want to generate click throughs to your website.
Make the most of your social networking tactics and use technology to get the job done. For example, one StumbleUpon post can be integrated with both Facebook and Twitter profiles so you’re making waves on all three social sites at once.
#2 Article marketing. Article marketing works well when you concentrate your efforts on quality article marketing sites with large audiences. One well written and informative article, rewritten a few times, and submitted to a handful of directories can generate the traffic you’re looking for. Be sure to include a bio box that includes a call to action and a link to your website to motivate click throughs.
While many people think of article marketing as a long-term stragegy (and it is!) it can also generate quick results in the form of overnight search enginge rankings, as well as backlinks from other sites. The results are determined by the high-traffic article directories where you publish your articles – and by the backlinks you get from other sites republishing your articles.
#3 Blogging. Post on your own blog or be a guest blogger on a blog with a large number of subscribers. Like social networking, if you offer an informative, controversial or entertaining post, you’ll have people clicking through to your website like mad. Of course, if you also promote this wonderful blog post(s) via social media, you can double your traffic results.
#4 Video content. It’s amazing how quickly a video can go viral. Like print content, videos that entertain, stir up a bit of controversy or offer tremendous value cause a buzz. They’re forwarded to friends and downloaded on laptops and mobile devices around the globe. A good video can generate all the traffic you need. Again, integrate a bit of social media to promote your video, blog about it, and you can multiply your traffic results.
#5 Partnerships. Partnering with a relevant or compatible business can work quite well to generate traffic fast. The key is to come up with a mutually beneficial agreement. Find people in your industry who are willing to work with you and help each other drive traffic. A marketing partnership may include guest blogging on each other’s sites, swapping advertisements or even promoting one another in your newsletter.
It’s possible to drive a ton of traffic to your website fast. The trick is to have a plan in place, know your audience and your goals, and take action. To your success!
