Increase Traffic On Your Website For Free

There are many ways to increase traffic to your website without forking out any money. To succeed you will only need time, creativity and patience. It also pays to be persistent. In these ways which I am about to explain you will not only succeed to grow the amount of traffic which is directed to your website but this traffic will be generally more genuine, meaning there would be a greater chance of winning the potential customer over.

 

Website

 

For your marketing efforts to succeed you need to have a proper website. The website should have one or more landing pages which act as the first page potential customers see when they visit your site. In order to successfully increase traffic on your website you will need to offer a product or service on your website, something to keep the new customer or visitor entertained. If you are just starting out, as a minimum you should have a registration form where people can enter their name and email address to be informed of future developments. If you do not have a website yet, create a free one now before moving on to the next section of this post.

 

Increase traffic on your website with social media

 

Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram and so on, are all examples of very popular social media. In some ways they are the same, in others they are completely different. Whilst an American user would most likely prefer a Twitter account, Europeans tend to choose Facebook. Where Youtube is great for uploading videos, Instagram is the best option for picture display. One thing is for sure, you need to have one or more social media pages set up to increase traffic on your website.

 

To start off, select 2 or 3 social media accounts. You don’t want to spread yourself too thin. I recommend starting with Google +. Whilst this media is not considered to be the most popular, since it is part of the Google family there is a higher possibility that your posts will appear quicker on search results. For the same reason I would also recommend opening a Youtube page. Google ranks Youtube pages with the appropriate keywords very high on the list of search results. If you could create videos regularly you will see a considerably increase of traffic on your website.

 

As for the 3rd social media page, think of where your audience is most likely to be. Facebook has many pages where your audience is likely to be. Linkedin is the preferred choice for business to business websites whilst Instagram is best for promoting your website through imagery. It is very important to include hashtags into each post to increase visibility. Be sure to post regularly and post at different times of day, until you start seeing a pattern of what works and what works less. The most important thing to remember is to include a link to the appropriate part of your website on each post. The easier and quicker you can make the process of going from post to sale, the higher your customer conversion rate.

Write a company blog to increase traffic on your website

 

In order to increase traffic on your website you need to focus on having the right keywords that direct customers to your website. The right keywords and sufficient quantity of them. Whilst having these keywords on your website is a must, it might sound very repetitive if you are not careful. Writing a blog allows you to have the main keywords written in each blog post and this will lead to a higher ranking result of your website. It is best to have your blog incorporated in your website.

 

Just like with social media, you need to keep your blog up to date. Do not focus on long articles, stick to your point and be clear. Like many things in life, practice makes perfect. In your blog posts focus on a particular topic, such as a product or service, or information on the industry you supply to. Offer your knowledge and experience to answer common questions. If potential customers find your blog and see you as a reliable source of information, they will also consider you as a reliable supplier.

 

Review websites can also be used to increase traffic on your website

 

There has been a proliferation of customer based review websites for practically any industry. Trip Advisor is probably the best known one for travel services. Some other popular ones you might be interested in are Yelp, Trustpilot and Which? There are many, many more, and I would recommend you focus on the one which is best suited for your website, depending in which country you are based in and what products or services you offer. You can create a business page and then link back to your website to increase traffic on your website.

 

People trust reviews, even if they are written by strangers. A recent study found that over 88% of consumers trust online reviews. You should encourage your new and existing customers to leave their review on your selected review site and this will help generate new traffic. Understandably you would need to get positive reviews for this to succeed, but offering a good product or service should guarantee overall positive reviews. You can even share great reviews on your website and social media posts as well as share the overall ranking.

    Thanks Fun Entrepreneur for sharing the beautiful post. I especially like “offer a product or service on your website”. I now know why it is important to offer a product or service. I’ll try to implement it on my blog and I hope I’ll be able to increase traffic as well.

      You need to offer something if you are going to make money. Very often people choose their product and then see how to sell it. I recommend you find your clients first and then see what they would be willing to buy from you.

    Thanks for the idea of the company blog. I didn’t realise that it can help so much, though it makes sense because a lot of businesses I buy from have one. I never made the connection! Thanks for this great article.

    Hiya, I am really glad I have found this info. Nowadays many bloggers publish only about gossip and net stuff for technical people and this is really frustrating. A good website with easy to understand content, that’s what I need. Thanks for making this website, and I will be visiting again. Do you do newsletters by email?
