The life blood of your website (or your marketing efforts) is targeted traffic to your product. When you write blog posts, articles for e-zines, and electronic reports, you can also post them on your website and elsewhere on the web, such as Facebook and LinkedIn. In this way, you are laying breadcrumbs across the internet, a path to your site / product.
By locating online posts that are already targeting your target customers and placing your guest posts – or free articles or reports with them – you’re drawing a well of prospects who are already leaning in your direction.
In this way, you are finding your market’s stream of prospects and entering a stream of prospects that are already there, rather than using a scattered gun approach to find those who are already interested in what you have to offer.
When using article writing for targeted traffic, you’ll want to try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, at least 300-600 words in length, but if you could squeeze in 4-5 articles a week consistently, you’d end up with more. 208 to 260 new information articles in just one year.
And if you put those articles on, say, just 3 sites like ezine sites, a Facebook page, or LinkedIn, in a year you will have your presence in more than 700 locations on the Internet.
By writing consistently each week and keeping your articles producing, you can generate up to 100 specific readers for your site in one day. Perhaps more so if you provide information that is truly valuable to your potential customer.
Other sources of targeted traffic you might like to include in your marketing arsenal:
Pinterest (where you create ‘pins’ that link to your site or affiliate product),
Search engine optimization (which will be part of the writing of any article, web pages, blog posts, etc. so that people who search for your content will find it),
Facebook (put ‘like’ and ‘share’ buttons on your site, link posts on your Facebook page to your site, Facebook ads, etc.)
Twitter (a 140-character microblogging platform, you can put a Twitter button on your site to get Twitter traffic)
Your own blog (Having your blog is one of the best ways to get consistent web traffic, plus you can put your articles on your blog as posts, as well as on your Facebook page and ezine sites)
Marketing Forum (participate in forums related to your niche, google “your niche” forum – “weight loss forum” or “golf forum” for example, and participate by answering questions, there are other considerations like making sure they allow your link on your profile for them, but we’ll delve into more at a later time.
These are just a few of the many sources of traffic for your website / affiliate marketing that are also covered at https://JosephsMarketing.com/traffic.
Keep in mind that statistically you should expect that only about 1 in 100 people are likely to buy your product or service. If with your email sequences and writing guest blog posts and articles, Pinterest and Facebook efforts, etc., you can generate, say, 1,000 specific visits to your website per day, you could expect to get 10+ sales. up to date. And all with traffic that costs you only a few hours a week.
