Back again today with more online advice and strategies.
Create a website and get “guaranteed web traffic.”
Nice thought, but totally untrue.
Why? Because you first need to think through the *type* of traffic you want driven to your site(s).
Type of traffic??
Joint venture traffic, affiliate traffic, paid search traffic, SEO traffic, email traffic, are just a few types of *traffic*. For example, SEO traffic is really composed of two subsets of traffic, if you think about it:
- Keyword/keyphrase traffic – words/phrases that generate searches in Google and direct traffic to you.
- Back-link traffic – links from other sites, that direct traffic to you.
So before you shell out a lot of money building your site, think through the keywords you want to target because this exercise needs to be an integral part of building your site code.
But the truth is, few think through what I’m mentioning. For example, you might want to target low-search volume keyword phrases eg: financial seminar marketing; or you might want to target high-search volume keyword phrases: direct mailers.
So you need to have your traffic strategy in mind *BEFORE* you start planning your site design. It will save you both time and money!
I realize this is just some quick advice today — and there’s certainly more involved — but hopefully it puts this notion of “guaranteed” traffic” into perspective for you.
If you don’t know what I am talking about, or don’t want to take the time learn about this topic then look to Team Internet Marketing for a free website analyst. Every website that they create comes with total internet marketing strategy included.
Ever wonder how those little tweet links produce a prewritten tweet with the perfect message all ready to go? I am going to tell you how it is done and you can use this in your newsletter and your blog posts for people to share your material even if you are not regularly using Twitter yourself.
