Posted: 31 May 2010
1. Inbound Links
Inbound links to your website are very important. It is one of the biggest ways that your site is rated. An inbound link, is a link from another site to yours.
Find as many sites as you can, and put a link on it to yours. Forums are great, and if you know other site owners, ask them. Just keep in mind, the more relevant the linking site is, the better.
2. Email Marketing
E newsletters are a great way to increase web traffic. You should ask you customers polity to join your email list, and hit them up every now and then with great specials and great info. The trick is, to make it worth their while. Don't just send them anything, send them a great deal. Then they will encourage other to join. If you just send them boring info, they are most likely going to unsubscribe.
3. Printed Marketing
So you have a site, but no traffic. Are you printing your website on everything? It should be on your dockets, your shop signs, your stationary, your shopping bags... Everywhere.
You may not think this helps, but it does. Your customers might not even know you have a website is you don't tell them. Get it out there.
4. Purchase Online Advertising
This is a quick but expensive way to boost traffic fast!
There are great advertising platforms out there where you can pay per click, that means you only pay when you get a visitor. Thats great compared to other advertising where you pay, and not one visitor is guaranteed.
Try Google Adwords, and Facebook. They have millions of visitors, and your advertising can be targeted.
5. Blog, Blog, Blog
Join up to some blogs, and write some great releated content, and add a link to your site. Just make sure your content is good, and is keyword rich. Then it will appear in search engines, then people will subscribe, the you will have more traffic. Also, once your a blogger, add comments to other peoples blogs and include a link to yours. Easy.
