When marketing your website or blog, what do you like best? How do you get the most traffic? What has worked best for you, and what have you tried that you maybe felt wasn't wo

Before looking into paid ads you have to be promoting and selling products that are giving you a good return.

Amazon products, unless you are selling very high price items, are unlikely to give you any return on your investment and so you would be running at a constant loss.

If you have some good e products then you may be able to afford the paid marketing campaign.

Hi Freya, Good Question, First optimize your website Content.
Know your current Traffic Statistics. (Check website traffic often. Create a better (and Documented) Content Marketing Strategy. Write more compelling blog Headlines. Write better content.
Use Eye-Catching photos. Internal Linking (important) Conduct a Content Audit

I hope it help some. much success to your future

that is a ton of very loaded questions! lol!

But its good because it shows your mind is working like an entrepreneur!

Free vs paid traffic is a philosophy thing. Some people only deal with paid traffic, other deal with nothing but free traffic.

Free traffic is HARDER to generate, but pays off better in the long run.

Paid traffic is EASIER to generate, but as soon as you stop paying for traffic, the traffic stops.

Free traffic is ALWAY profitable because... well... it's free.

Paid traffic requires a higher budget because you have to PAY for data while you optimize your campaigns.

Paid traffic you have to worry wtih return on investment or ROI. That is CRUCIAL.

So in my honest opinion, the best traffic is free traffic from google and social media. It takes a while to cultivate, but once google loves you, you can make truly passive income.

Free traffic is always at risk because you are somewhat at the mercy of a massive google update or facebook update to kill your traffic. Luckily, the training here at WA survives Google updates because of the nature of our articles... .good quality, helpful content.

I cannot tell you a dollar amount for paid traffic because the true answer is that it depends. it may cost you $200 or $1000 to find the right targeted traffic while you optimize your squeeze pages and copy on your sals pages (which likely also takes money). It is often better to have a business generating income before investing in ads.

I believe that you can make more traffic and money with Paid ads, but it is constant work. Good campaigns that pay great ROIs tend to get old after a while and then need revamping.

SEO or free traffic takes more work Up Front, but articles you create now can rank for many years. I have articles i wrote 3 years ago that are still generating me money today.

So all in all, if you are here at WA, you are likely in this for the free traffic route. As mentinoed, it takes times initially to get it ramped up, but once the snowball is big enough to roll on it's own, it's pretty passive and you can work on another project building a nother snowball.

combine the two for the greatest effect, once the site is up and running and generating you money, the SCALE it with paid advertisements.

it knwo that was a bit long winded, but it's the best answer i got.

Thank you very much. I appreciate the detailed response.

It was great knowledge it helped me... thank you!!!
