In this episode of Extra Paycheck podcast we will be talking about some of the best strategies of generating more traffic to your website.
We can all agree that traffic is the holy grail of every singly online business, blog and website. Traffic alone isn’t enough though, it has to be high quality targeted traffic that has a potential of converting into new email subscribers, new sales or simply new loyal fans.
Over the years I have seen hundreds of “gurus” showing us how they launch new products and make 6 figures in sales within a few days. I am not calling those guys liars or scammers because many of them did indeed achieve such amazing numbers. Most of these gurus also reveal their strategies, explaining their sales funnels, explaining how they created the content or product. However, most (if not all) always forgot to mention a crucial detail: traffic.
The folks described above either had huge email lists (100,000+ subscribers). Some of that promoted their launches by partnering up with other marketers with huge lists. Some spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on paid traffic. The point is they never really told us how they got that many visitors coming to their website and buying their products. You can create the world’s most amazing product at the lowest price possible yet you wouldn’t make a single penny if you don’t have targeted audience coming to your offer. If you own a website you already know this, if you are just starting to build your first website you must know this. Targeted traffic is the most important aspect of making money online.
