How to Get Traffic to Your Website For Free
Ok, folks. This has been playing on my mind a lot recently. In fact, it has become one of my obsessions. Learning how to get traffic to your website for free can be an arduous task but it's not impossible. Once you have a system in place, it's not hard at all.
All the information you need is right here in the training but for those who like to hear it from other sources, here goes.
Create a Strategy
What I mean by that is, know your strategy for finding keywords, creating content, SEO, publishing, and after publishing.
Write/type your strategy for the above into short procedures and PRINT THEM OFF! This is important! If you print them off, you will always have a point of reference and you will have no excuses for forgetting a step.
Now for traffic. Again, decide which methods you are going to use for getting free traffic to your site.
Social Media is Your Friend
If you haven't done so already, set up accounts for at least most of the following social media platforms:
Each time you create a post and publish it, run down your list of social media accounts and share your new post in them. Be sure to use your keywords wherever possible.
How to Get Traffic To Your Website For Free
I have created procedures for myself where I documented all the places I shared my posts. It's in a Google spreadsheet. That way, if I'm on the road and don't have my laptop, all I need to do is log into my gmail account and go to my Google Drive to share and update any posts I've recently created and update my spreadsheet.
My spreadsheet includes the following columns:
- Publishing Date
- Post Title
Each time I publish a post and share it, I go to my spreadsheet and update the above columns. I put an x in the sharing site columns so I know I shared my content to that particular site. I always try to do the social sharing within one day of posting. And be consistent!
By extending your reach with your posts you will start to get a lot more traffic to your site. I've seen my traffic slowly increase as I've continued to make this a regular habit.
If you are someone who thinks this isn't necessary, I urge you to rethink your strategy. You can have the most beautiful site with the most awesome information on it, but if no one knows about it, you are writing for yourself. I don't care how great your keywords are.
The most important thing to take away from this post is to develop a strategy, document procedures around your strategy and use them everyday!
It's working for me so I know it will work for you!
All the best,
UPDATE: For anyone interested in getting a copy of my spreadsheet, I've shared a blank one here on my Google Drive:
