Web traffic is a prized commodity in the online space for many reasons. For some people, web traffic equals potential customers, and for others still website traffic equals popularity or social proof that one can use to further escalate one’s station in the pecking order of virtual popularity.
I have yet to find the true measure of the value of web traffic because it means
so many different things to so many different people. With that being said,
I still aim to give you quality content based on an actionable model that will
bring traffic to your website in 60 seconds.
The most generalized description that one can make about traffic is that it can
be divided into 2 categories; free traffic and paid traffic.
2 great sources of free traffic are word of mouth marketing where you simply tell someone you know to go to website “X” because it’s a cool website that they will find value at. The next no-cost traffic method that I recommend and have used to build a client list of over 10,000 people from around the world is a traffic exchange website such as: http://www.TrafficDynamite.com
Both methods work to get you traffic in 60 seconds or less.
Since I gave 2 examples of free website traffic, I will not discuss 2 paid versions
of traffic that might work for you (or not). Depending on what your budget is for paid traffic generation let’s cover 2 of the most popular paid traffic models
that you can apply in 60 seconds;
1st – an ad swap or solo ad to a known buyers list, this is a situation that
exists when you contact someone who has access to a list of people who have
bought the exact or similar product or service that you are marketing and
advertising. You agree to a set price per person that takes action and opts
in to your list or buys whatever you are selling.
2nd – is the currently popular purchase of social traffic, for example a
Facebook ad or a sponsored post that you pay someone with a large fan base
of following to endorse your product or service.
There are many more methods and strategies to marketing and advertising with
free and paid web traffic which is why I invite you to join me for a webinar with Michelle Pescosolido on 21 March 2012 (Thursday night) at 7:00p.m Central time to learn how to leverage the power of free and paid Facebook advertising.
