Traffic is the lifeblood of your website and what gives it selling power. No wonder people often say, no traffic no business. But the problem may be how to get free traffic to your website.
Creating a site and posting articles and offers to it would not automaticvally bring the targeted traffic you need for your site to be succeesful. You therefore need techniques which will bring you the type of visitors who will be highly interested in what you have to offer on your site, and who above all, will take action such as commenting on your posts, giving you their email addresses for freebies, newletters, mailing lists, updates and acquiring their needs through you.
Without much ado, let’s delve into these methods.
1. Create an email signature with your affiliate link or website url
If your email account is on gmail like mine, sign in to your account, go to the “settings” tab under the sort of wheel under your profile (as shown in the screenshot above) and scroll right down to the bottom where it says signature. Here enter your affiliate link or website url.
Should you be using another type of email account, google how to add a signature to that email account.
Once done, any time time you send out an email message, you are potentially promoting your offer or your site and you could also be making a sale.
This is because people will click on your link to go see what you are about. And they may just become a regular visitor to your site or a buyer there if they like what they see.
2. Post your affiliate link or website url on your Facebook page
Facebook is the biggest social network now, and still growing. In this sense, it is the biggest single market you can find anywhere. Neglecting to target people on Fecbook is tantamount to leaving money on the table.
Here is an ideas for a post you could use for your Facebook page to get free traffic to your website.
Text: You will succeed in affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate Training!
Headline: The Training You Need to succeed as an affiliate!
Doing this is one of the best ways to generate some interest among your Facebook friends in your offer to make quick money!
You can also create a quality post on your website featuring a product or talking about some aspect of your website theme, and post it on your facebook page. With a link to your offer or website, people will click to go there.
3. Tweet your Message to your Twitter followers
140 characters may appear too few to some people, but its power on Twitter is enormous. An important requirement to succeed here, just as on Facebook, is to have a large number of followers.
If your present Twitter account does not concern you link or website niche you are promoting, you may create a new Twitter account geared to that and start following as many people as you can who are interested in your niche. Once you have enough people following you back, you can start tweeting to them.
Either broadcast your affiliate link with some text talking about the program you are promoting or instal the Twitter bottom on your website pages and simply tweet anyting you post on your site.
4. Post your Videos on YouTube
YouTube is the second most popular search engine in the world after Google. Besides, it is easier to do than Google. This means you can rank much easier here.
The popularity of Google could also come from the fact that people like to consume videos.
So, create some short videos reviewing your offer or introducing your website. To be credible, give the pros and cons of the offer. Use keywords in your video title that are related to the video’s theme to help your video rank. Don’t forget to include your affiliate link or website url inside the videos! You would make some great money.
In addition to this, you could comment on all the YouTube videos you come across that are related to your theme or niche and include your affiliate link in the comment section of the videos.
YouTube makes this easy for you by proposing other videos related to your area of interest when you publish a video to the platform. On the other hand, you can carry out a search in the YouTube window and it will propose you videos relevant to the search terms.
Do you already have an instagram account? Then build a “following” if you don’t have many people following you already. But if you don’t have such an account, then it behoves you to create an instagram page, and start uploading interesting pictures or images to it. These pictures and images would generate free traffic for you.
The best way to proceed is to pick a niche. When eventually you have followers, they will visit the links you post in your account!
6. Article Marketing
Since Google still ranks sites based on the quality of the articles posted on them, article marketing is still a very effective way to promote offers and websites.
All you have to do is create articles on a given subject or theme and post them on your website. If you used the right keywords in the title, in the body of the articles and in your tags, your article or page could just rank on the first page of Google and people will find it.
You can also submit these articles to article sites such as ezinearticles.com and goarticles.com where you embed your affiliate link or website url in the resource box which is very effective for promotions
7. Forum Posting
There are all sorts of forums on the internet related to any niche you can think of. Find forums having a bearing on your niche or website theme. Create an account there, and start making useful comments there. With your affiliate link or website url added to the signature area of your account, your forum posts, will create a link redirecting traffic to your offer or post.
Be consistent at it and you will soon see this start to deliver a lot of sales for you!
8. Free Press Releases
Doing a press release is another great way to generate a great amount of free traffic to your offers or website. Happily, there are services that enable you to create a press release for free!
If you are good at it, you can write your own press release about your affiliate program or website.
Otherwise, specialized websites like HireWriters.com exist where you can get a press release created for you by a specialist.
9. Start a Blog
The ninth trick to getting good free targeted traffic to your offer or website is to start a blog or review site. Of course, this blog must be related to your niche or your website’s niche.
After giving some informaton about the product, show the pros and cons and at the end tell the visitors whether you recommend the product or notand why.
What is sure is that with time google will index your blog and this will bring you more and more organic traffic.
