The best way to ensure your success is to build automated traffic sources to send you visitors day and night.

Traffic is useless . . . unless…

Keyword research is really the first step in getting traffic to your website. This is because you will building your traffic funnels around specific keywords. Which means you need to put some thought into the keywords you’re targeting.

Here are the important considerations for your research:

  • Are the keywords you’re interested in attainable? This involves doing some competitive analysis to determine the ease of entry for each keyword
  • What kinds of visitors do these keywords bring? Certain keywords are good for generating a lot of visitors who don’t buy anything. What you want is buyers!
  • Will these keywords bring affiliates? Generating your own customers is great – having other people do it for you is even better. So make sure you are also targeting keywords to attract affiliates.

Although this is an essential step, doing it all by hand can take a very long time. Experts are expensive and don’t guarantee results. The upside is that these two factors keep most everyone from even doing their keyword research. What I recommend is using website traffic software to save the time of doing it yourself and the money of hiring someone else. This will not only speed it up. It will give you better results, as well.

Once you know your keywords…

Now that you’ve completed your keyword research, you can begin using these keywords to get traffic to your website.

Powerful Traffic Tactics:

  • Surveys
  • “Help” Websites
  • Video Websites

Surveys

People love filling in surveys. You can use this fact to provide “sticky” content for other website owners. They benefit by getting free content for their site and you get a link to your site under the survey. Think about that – you get website traffic for free just for making a survey! This is a sneaky little idea that most people never even think of. Just make the question interesting enough that people will want to share it with their own visitors.

“Answer” Sites

Maybe you’ve seen these help sites where people post questions and other people answer them. But, like the surveys, that’s not why you’re going to pay attention to these sites. What you want to do is use these sites to generate traffic and leads for your business. One thing you can do is to visit sites like Craigslist and Yahoo! Answers and manually extract contact info to contact other users. So, if you’re smart, you’ll use website traffic software to do it all for you. These tools put the whole thing on auto-pilot and just deliver the leads to you each day.

Video Websites

Another great resource is video sharing sites like YouTube. In fact, YouTube has over 2 billion videos watched per day! If used properly, video sites can get you more website traffic than you know what to do with.

Even if you don’t think you can make a good video. One super easy thing to do is take an article or website you’ve written. And use free screen capture software to record yourself reading it. You can even get software that will automatically do this for you.

Summary

Figuring out how to get some visitors to your site is not hard at all. Use your noodle and come up with things other people aren’t doing. And today there are tons of options for software tools that can help with every part of this process.
