One of my customers yesterday asked about ways to increase traffic to their website. I wanted to share a few ideas that have helped us increase our website traffic.
- Participate in Online Forums â€“ Find out which online forums your prospective customers frequent and begin posting messages offering your expert advice. When posting always make sure you include a link back to your website.
- Add a News Feature â€“ Adding a News/Press Release section on our website has helped us generate new traffic and has allowed us to keep our visitors informed and up-to-date about our company.
- Start a Blog â€“ Our website traffic has doubled since Iâ€™ve started this blog. It keeps our site up-to-date (which the search engines love), weâ€™re providing worthy content, and it helps position us as experts in our field.
The suggestions above are real life examples of our success.
The best advice I can give is to make sure you utilize the web medium more. Itâ€™s always good to use traditional methods of promotion â€“ newspaper, business cards, etc. – but if you want to quickly drive more traffic to your website, promote where most of your traffic is…on the web.
â€˜til next time.
