Free Traffic Generating Tools You Can Use Today

Last Update: March 04, 2019

There are several tools I use to help automate repetitive tasks that suck up all of my time. These and other such tools have helped me considerably. Well, certainly some more than others. I did some more research on it and put together a list for you. Many of these tools are free to use but have PRO versions for a charge. Take a look...

Hootsuite & Buffer - Each of these will let you manage your social media posts all in one place. You can schedule posts months in advance. You can include infographics, images, links to blogs and videos. Social media accounts include Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and LinkedIn. It’s one of the best tools I use to stay active on social media.

ManyChat lets you create a FB Messenger bot for marketing, sales and support. Really high click through and open rates. You can push out blogs through manychat with high click through rates.

Buzzsumo shows you all of the popular articles that are trending now. You can research a particular topic to find out which ones are most popular and then write your own blog on the same topic for greater traffic.

Zapier is a great way to automate many repetative tasks such as sharing your Facebook page posts on your WP blog, post an Instagram photo to your blog or add your WP posts to Facebook as new cards.

Zapier is a web automation app. A zap is a blueprint for a task that you want to do over and over again. It integrates with over 1,000 different apps including HubSpot, Twitter, Facebook and Istagram on the short list.

In fact, there are 152 different WP zaps you can utilize. The trick is getting your WP site verified with Zapier so they can talk to each other. It will require access to your site’s security settings. Something I was unable to find and as such had to ask for help with.

IFTTT - So IFTTT stands for is “If This Then That”. Its a free way to get your apps talking to each other. IFTTT calls these connections “applets”. SCREENSHOT To set up these “applets” you define triggers followed by a specific action. So the trigger could be a new website subscriber and the result could be a welcome email is automatically sent or a PDF is sent. The possibilities are endless!

Social Blade tracks user statistics for YT, Twitter, Instagram, Twitch

Shows your subscriber growth over time as well as how much content your pushing out. Also, shows you how well your content is generating new subscribers throughout all social media sites including YT. Which means that you can then determine whether or not more content more frequently actually results in more or less subscribers/visitors to your site.

HelloBar to get subscribers and generate new leads and sales through pop ups and horizontal bars that appear on your site. You customize these things easily to say and do what you need them to. For instance, I use hello bar on one of my sites to encourage subscriptions and on the other site to generate WA affiliate links.

Subscribers is an excellent way to build a following for your site and communicate with them without asking them for an email. I run a real estate blog site and more often than not, people are really wary of providing their email. Recognizing that fact, I implemented this system to grow my lead generation. They have a free basic program and a paid pro program for $29/mo.

This might be viewed as self promotions with the cloaked links...just saying

The links are NOT affiliate links. I have no affiliation with any of them. Just put it in as a convenience to everyone else. So, no self promotion.

I have no affiliation to any of these. There is no attempt at self-promotion here. No affiliate links. I just thought others may want to know some of what I use and what else is out there.
