Hey all...I should move continents more often...its way early in the morning here and my brain says "enough sleep already"...so thought I'd use time wisely and add some training...
Here at WA we see a lot of lessons devoted to Social Media and we engage in a lot of discussion with other members about social media to build business by gaining a following, getting your content shared and building that all important traffic to your site (and therefore your products and links)
Within these conversations we see talk of Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest etc....
I was never a fan of social media...but I most definitely see the benefits for business. Those of you who have read some of my other traning and blogs know that I'm forever baging on about the brilliance of Pinterest and Tumblr ...now I want to introduce you to the one social network that outperforms every other (for me) and gets me the most social traffic to my website/s.
Reddits slogan is that of being "the front page of the internet" and for good reason. Reddit above all other social media platforms has beeen used successfully by thousands of online businesses to get traffic to their site. its not unknown for a single post to get thousands of views within an hour or two of publication.
The great news - anyone can achieve this level of hits. In my experience within 1 hour of posting a new blog article I start getting reddit hits and likes/up-votes and then traffic to my site. Reddit visitors seem to hang around as well...usually several pages and several minutes each (great for the bounce rate in analytics)
The not so great news - this is going to take work and patience (but in my experience your time is far better spent developing your Reddit threads....I have little to very little success in getting sales from FB and Twitter....so I spend time on reddit..and for me...time well spent.)
The main point is to begin slow with reddit...I'll explain more as we go through this training.
