There are 100s of methods to generate traffic to your web site however unless you master these 7 highly effective habits your website may only receive a trickle of traffic. 1. Learn multiple traffic generation methods Don't rely on one method of generating traffic. You never know when one strategy will lose it's effectiveness. Different products often require alternative or a combination of methods. For instance optimizing your articles for the search engines before publishing them uses a combination of SEO and copywriting. 2. Become an expert in one method Online marketers often spend to much time and money trying several methods to generate web traffic. They keep purchasing new ebooks and software hoping this will be the secret sauce for boosting their web traffic. They don't become anexpert for any marketing method so they continue to fail in attracting many visitors. Select one traffic generation method that works well and become an expert on it. 3. Tracking
If you don't monitor your traffic generation method, you won't know how effective it is and how to improve it. Regularly check your web site statistics to see where your visitors are coming from, what keywords they are using to find your web site and monitor the number of unique visits you receive each month. If it increases every month you know the method is having an impact. 4. Consistency You need to promote your products or web site consistently to produce a never ending stream of visitors. Create a timetable for yourself. For example if you do article marketing, write and publish 3 articles a week and stick to it. If you need more traffic increase the frequency of your promotions by writing and publishing more articles. 5. Set goals Make a goal how many visitors you want to attract to your web site. If you are currently getting 1000 visitors a month, build it up to 2000 a month. The more traffic you receive the more sales you'll make...it's a numbers game. 6. Stay focused If you're the sole proprietor of your online business it's easy to get distracted by other duties such as web design, copy writing, email, blogging, etc. These are all necessary to run your business however if you slow down or stop marketing your products your sales will decline. Stay focused on your marketing goals by taking action on them. 7. Be ready to adapt Technology can change very quickly. If your main marketing method ceases to work well, look for an alternative marketing strategy. Don't place all your eggs inone basket. For instance if all your traffic comes from getting and maintaining top rankings in the search engines, then suddenly your rankings disappear due to a change in search engine algorithms, your sales will decrease dramatically.
