Traffic for the Brick and Mortar Business
When a brick and mortar business is planning on opening the doors, a high traffic area is one of the first things they study before deciding on a location. They weigh the costs of a particular location against the amount of traffic in the area. But, we’re not talking brick and mortar today.
How to Get Internet Traffic Online
There’s so much to learn about internet traffic. And, without it, your business will fail. So it’s vitally important you understand the kinds of internet traffic and how to get it to your site.
Kinds of Internet Traffic
We can’t begin the list all the kinds of internet traffic here. Also if we did you’d get overwhelmed with the choices. So, we’ll pick a few important places to start to generate some good quality traffic to your site.
- Influencer Traffic
- Retargeting Traffic
- Pinterest and Pinterest Group Boards
Influencer Internet Traffic
This traffic comes from the major influencers on the internet who are in the same space as your product or site. For example; if you’ve got a “Low Carb” or “Keto” product you’d be looking for the not notch people in that field.
Ask them if you can guest post on their blog, then request to put your link in the post as part of the arrangement.
Have you ever noticed that when you look up a product, a dress or a car for example; that suddenly you see that dress or car popping up all over the internet as you are surfing. That isn’t by coincidence. That is called retargeting traffic.
Pinterest and Pinterest Group Boards for Internet Traffic
Pinterest has helped blogs big and small gain an enormous amount of internet traffic over the last few years. Many bloggers report that 70% or more of their traffic is due to Pinterest. If you don’t have a large following on Pinterest to help drive traffic, then you can look for group boards to join. Often people with large followings will have large group boards which can help you get traffic quickly to your site.
Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
These are social media sites as is Pinterest. If you don’t have a strong social media presence, you can purchase paid ads on these sites. But, before you invest in paid advertising I highly recommend you watch this video from the 4% group.
They’re an awesome group. We are each working toward our goals of prosperity. Enjoy!
