So I just wanted to write a really quick post to help you guys who are getting started with traffic. There are things you need to keep in mind that will actually HELP you to get traffic in the correct ways using the correct processes.
You see it's not just about driving traffic. It's about driving traffic to the right place, and using the right traffic tactics that work for your business model.
I drive ALL traffic to a squeeze page. (http://backpackbusinesslifestyle.com/sp/) My business is all about teaching people to create their own online business. So tactics like…
Buying solo ads from people who have lists in my niche
Buying advertising on sites that are in my niche
Writing articles about my niche
Using social media tactics
Etc, etc, etc…
Those are all things I do because they are proven to work in my niche.
So before you even THINK about traffic you need a squeeze page so you can drive traffic and get people in your niche on your list. This way you can send an email to your list and get them to any link you want them to go to. The bigger your list the more traffic you can drive to any link you want.
Well 95% of people aren't doing that…
So once you have somewhere to drive traffic then it all comes down to educating yourself about the different traffic tactics and finding the ones that work for you and using them each and every day.
Yes! You have to drive traffic each day in order to keep that traffic coming. That's something else 95% of people don't do. They are too busy chasing the dream and aren't actually WORKING. 🙂
So here's a diagram of how this all works…
Here's an explanation of the diagram…
1. You learn tactics to drive traffic
2. You drive traffic to your squeeze page
3. You get people on your list
4. You email your list when you want to send them to a site (maybe a link to your product, a site you're an affiliate for, etc)
5. Your list subscribers click on your links and go where you want them
See how easy that is?
So quit making this driving traffic thing so hard… Get a squeeze page, drive traffic, get your list subscribers to anywhere you want. 🙂
I hope this helps and if you have questions about what I've covered here please leave them in the comments section below…
