If you have your website up and running but don’t have a clue about attracting targeted visitors, you can use these quick tips to get the ball rolling:
Utilize Videos – Web visitors are a lot less patient than they use to be. Given the option to watch videos over reading a new book, your web visitor will probably choose to watch an informative and educational video over reading a book that drones on and on. If you don’t know how to create a video and upload it to a site such as YouTube, you can either outsource it to a website such as Fiverr, or you can use our services to help you.
When creating a video, make sure you pick a topic you’re knowledgeable about, and feel comfortable discussing at a length. IN other words, if you choose a topic that you could discuss for hours on end with friends and family, this is probably the topic you want to use for your video creation. After you’ve created the video or had the video created for you, be sure to upload it to a video sharing site such as YouTube. Don’t forget that YouTube is not the only video sharing site out there, there are many others, so be sure to explore your options (we do that automatically for you).
Create captivating podcasts – Podcasts are another popular form of reaching out to your fellow subscribers and visitors. They’re easy to create, and they enable you to connect directly to your audience. Also, some people prefer listening to a podcast rather than watching a video. People on their work commute, for example.
Create forum accounts and interact regularly – Create a spreadsheet of forums that are related to your topic. Be sure to store the forum URL, your username, and your user password on this spreadsheet. Be sure to regularly contribute valuable information to these forums. You may have the option to share your website link in the signature area of your account, if this is the case, take advantage of this resource. AS you contribute to threads with valuable information, people will click on your URL link in your signature, and will be redirected to your website.
Article promotion – Content or articles is another promotion technique that may be utilized. Previously, people use to write articles and redirect readers to their websites using the author box that was required for article directories. Because people often took advantage of this technique, Google doesn’t recognize it as highly as they use to. Still, it’s a valuable asset and it still works; just to a lesser degree.
Comment on other blogs – Some blogs have left the comment option available. If this is the case, be sure to contribute something useful and share a link back to your site. Just don’t spam your link all over the place.
Guest blogging or guest posting – This has become a valuable way to contribute your wealth of knowledge to other interested readers, as well as promote your very own website. Some top websites in your niche need help generating content ideas and will enlist the help of people who are knowledgeable about your particular topic. If you’re awesome at writing and know a lot about your topic, consider reaching out to other website owners and asking if they need help generating content for their visitors in exchange for a mention of your website. You can often times get the ball rolling by suggesting possible content topics.
While this list isn’t comprehensive in any way, it’s enough to get things moving in the right direction. If you need help getting started or are overwhelmed by the entire site promotion process,
