Multiple streams of traffic

Last Update: February 06, 2020

Many of us have chosen multiple streams of traffic income all at once. Starting from zero.


This is a no go for any beginner, as it only leads to frustration and burn out sensations.


The multiple traffic source businesses we see, have not been built overnight. And certainly not random posting on various social media platforms.


I am speaking to myself, most of all. And also some friends. Very close ones. First thing we need to do is create a product. A wonderful awesome beautiful product. That we ourselves would have wished to be able to buy.


This might be a website. With all the knowledge we have been looking for in years.


It might be an online class, an e book, a video-course, a lot of things. Products that we once were craving and now can be proud to provide.


With this pride and affection at the same time, we need to advertise our products/websites.


On one first traffic stream only.


Otherwise, it would be hard to evaluate if it works.


Give it some time. If it doesn't work, try the next social media platform. But even if it does work, go on to the next campaign.


Just do them one at a time, keep track and enjoy the process!!


Keep us in the loop,


Lady Jane

It is true that one project at a time is much more profitable over time than doing everything at the same time hoping to quickly have income. But we must recognize that there are people who manage to do everything at the same time. Perhaps because they have more time to spend on their business on the internet. I wish you the best in your internet adventure.

Thank you, Ingrid! You are so right. But more often than not, those people who manage, are not the rookies. We newbies should definitely follow the training step by step and not make jumps and random posts on social media. I meant myself more than anyone.
I just go in, leave the training and try to jump to the end by doing random things all at once.
I guess there is more like me, but maybe not

Doing anything well takes focus ... working on a single site/niche allows you to invest, the focussed concentration required, to learn, build and promote a new site.
Once successful, the second and subsequent streams of income will be much easier to develop, in fact you will wonder why the first one seemed so complicated!
Best of luck, my friend ... one step at a time

That sounds good to me. You can diversify AFTER you have gained success and have a solid foundation. But not on the early stages of your business.

Excellent advice Jane. That is the reason why I stopped working on my first website and only working on my second which is promoting WA. I know that I made many mistakes on my first so I am not worried it is languishing undeveloped. I will return to that after I achieve some level of success on the website I am working on.

Right in line with your great recommendation.

Keep up the great work my Lady!

Love and Hugs.

This is a wonderful post full of insights, Janie! Food for thoughts. I have accounts with all social media but it's absolutely impossible to be active on all of them.
And I also don't like spending time there, I like writing, creating pins in canva, even recording videos (!)...just creating something. But I believe everything takes times and who knows, maybe in a few months I will be enjoying tweeting, instagramming, linkedinking and all that.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
Love

That sounds so like me, Lenka! I don't like hanging out in social media either, I just enjoy writing content. :D And creating designs for my t-shirts and images to my website. Yes, the same as you said, CREATING something.

I do like to reply to comments of my website visitors. But social media, I actually have to force myself to even share my posts there.

Same here, Kirsti! I also have to force myself to share my posts there and I don't know what to write there when I'm sharing it. Feels stupid :)
I also like replying to comment on my website and I love commenting here (and asking, writing, everything), it feels so comfortable but it's like a different world. So supportive and constructive criticism, no haters.
Well I hope we learn how to work there one day.
Or we will hire someone who will do it for us and we can just keep creating! :)

Exactly, I also enjoy communicating here in the "social media" of Wealthy Affiliate, but not in other social medias!

I'm relieved to hear I'm not the only one who hates social media, though. I thought it was just me, and everyone else is being social like crazy. :D

That would be awesome, if we could just hire social media assistants! Who knows, maybe someday we can, both of us. :)

Hitting the nail bang on the head there. The first traffic source I go always shoot for it SEO.

Mainly because it is passive traffic. Once I have a good amount I'll focus on other sources of SEO based traffic - Referral traffic through guest posts (also dependent on SEO as you need to rank the guest post).

Then passive social media traffic - Pinterest, YouTube, Reddit, Quora and other non-newsfeed based social media/forums.

Reason: I want to be as passive as I can be with traffic and not spending hours on FB posting, commenting, sharing/liking etc etc and creating more fresh content

Think long term traffic Vs Short term traffic.

creating a diversity of traffic sources has a positive knock-on effect on SEO as you are getting more traffic and from a variety of sources.

also,

reduces your/our dependence on google and less exposed to algorithm changes (in both directions) resulting in greater stability for your online business.

Great post Janie!!
