1.0 INTRODUCTION

After setting up your product the way you want it, as discussed in Chapter 12, your sales newsletter, and maybe a couple of email slides for your personal and affiliate use, what is the next thing you need to do next? your offer to enjoy the profits of your business? the earnings you’ve been working for for the umpteenth number of hours now.

Your guest is as good as mine:

Traffic! Traffic! Traffic!

2.0 OBJECTIVES

– to discuss free ways to drive traffic to your website.

– discuss why a beginner on a basic budget should start their business with free traffic.

– Introduce more online resources that will help the beginner to use free traffic correctly to obtain the expected results.

3.0 MAIN CONTENT

I have already pointed out in previous chapters the importance of traffic to your online business. And that there are two types of traffic that you can bring to your websites to keep your business prosperous and profitable.

They are: free traffic and paid traffic.

Both types are necessary for your business to survive in the short and long term.

3.1 Why Free Traffic

But in the short term, you should go for free traffic, especially if your business is on a startup budget or is just experimenting to see if things will work out and how they will work out before investing massively in your vision. Free traffic is actually the shortcut to success in all online startups and you should never ignore this.

In this chapter, I’m going to examine the different types of free traffic options available to you as a beginner. But let me add here without overlooking that even high-end and experienced internet marketers sometimes turn to these free methods to increase their profit rate, so don’t take these methods for granted, because they are so powerful.

As an internet entrepreneur, it won’t be long before you realize that all marketers, online and offline, are singing a song and a chorus – My Product – Buy, Buy, Buy.

There seems to be a consensus among internet marketers: despise free online tools, which actually abound when it comes to this business. But you are a man and not a boy, so you should know better.

So if you suspect them for their snobbish attitude towards these free online tools, do you have the right to have your own opinion, true or false?

That said, the truth that bears repeating here, if only once, is that free online tools are everywhere, they are there for the little one like you who is struggling to get their new business up and running. vision. As you master the art, you can choose which of the tools to upgrade or downgrade.

3.2 The correct ways to use it

Shsssssssh … don’t tell anyone that I have revealed this highly guarded secret of the GURUS to you: some of them are still using these free tools and methods in their own businesses until tomorrow, because it is highly efficient as well as payments. – only if you know the correct ways to use them.

Now show me a man with the usual gray matter who will be given free tools and shown how to use them correctly to make a profit in his business, but does he abandon them for the paid ones?

None.

Period.

3.3 Free traffic methods

Let’s now move on to exploring the free traffic sources that you can cleverly use to profit your business right from the start of your business.

There are actually a myriad of free resources that you can use to make your product easily viewable by countless people on your site, but I’ll only examine the most common ones here. You may be familiar with some of them by now, but I’ll just add the profit angle to the social angle you know them by.

Are:

  • Facebook

I know most of the people reading this now have a Facebook account. If not, go there now and sign up. You just need your email and password – then start posting, then make friends. PURPOSE NOT SPAM.

Just aim to increase their social interactions and then send them to see your product or services. When they are familiar with you, business is easy enough for them.

  • Youtube

This is the second most popular search engine after Facebook, so any serious online entrepreneur should use it to promote their business. Open a channel and post short 2-5 minute videos that have a link to your product, affiliate products, or your website.

At the end of your video, make sure you have a strong call to action, add a free giveaway to encourage them to sign up for your giveaway. The topic of your video should include a well-researched keyword.

  • Article Directories

Type in your browser: article directories, it will return several directories for you to choose from. The most popular among them are EzineArticles, GoArticles, among others. Just sign up and publish your articles with your links (only 2) and your resource box and traffic will visit your sites and offers in droves.

  • Twitter

Marketing on Twitter can be very rewarding. Your account like other social networks is free, you only need your email address that you already have and a password. Then make friends, create a group, and become an authority in a certain marketing niche. Share some relevant, newsworthy and common links and content selected in your area of ‚Äč‚Äčauthority. Join the discussions and send hashtags of influencers (popular people) to your friends and you will soon get a sale. But make sure you don’t SPAM.

  • Instagram

This is a photo / video centric social network and learning how to use it can take your business to the next level. Many entrepreneurs are willing to implement this powerful business tool and this fact alone can be a game changer for their business in an environment that has over 400 million users.

  • Snapchat

This works like your normal email. Start by building your audience, friends, and then use Snapchat to engage with them, as well as marketing as you go. Also Google for Snapchat for entrepreneurs.

  • LinkedIn

Although it is a social network, it allows you to promote your business freely. The secret to success is optimizing your page and linking to your blog if you have one. Post regularly and also follow other popular and influential bloggers.

Use hootsuite to link your blog to LinkedIn so your blog posts can be published automatically. Only a few people who use LinkedIn know how to get it to run their business promotions, as it was initially used to find new jobs. This means that if you know how to use the site to skillfully market your business, you will have more visits and sales than using Facebook and YouTube.

  • Guest blogging and vice versa

Another free traffic secret is being a search blogger on someone else’s blog while allowing other experts to be your guest blogger.

But keep in mind that for this strategy to be successful in driving traffic to your website, you need to blog on sites that are relevant to your niche.

Jayson Demers article can be very helpful in the process of implementing this strategy in your business: ‘The definitive step-by-step guide to building your business through guest blogging’ Google for it online now.

  • Go mobile

Strive to optimize your website for mobile phones, as about a quarter of mobile phones are smartphones when I write this chapter, and they will be higher when I read it.

If the web page where you store your product is mobile friendly, you will enjoy heavy traffic from mobile phone users. The experts can help you do this for pennies on Fiverr.

  • Take a look at your competition

Don’t be afraid or forget your competition. In online businesses, competition can be a very useful means of finding out where the money is. See what they do, go where they go and come back with wisdom that will allow you to run your business profitably.

This piece of software – buzzsumo, can help you do it accurately.

See what it can do for you below, search term: big data. You can replace that with your search and search terms.

These are not intended to be exhaustive sources for getting free traffic to view and buy your product from your website, but even only you can put these few to proper use, you will make more than abundant profit on your business to start on the go. to consider other free fonts.

To be frank, it is not about what sources of free traffic you are using to sell your product, it is the level of competence demonstrated in using these resources. Just pick one after the other and get a video on how to set up and sell on those sites and it won’t be long before you realize how powerful each trading tool is.

3.4 Rest …

My undergraduate project

In fact, this is why I postulated in my undergraduate project that no member of the 21st century Homo sapiens sapiens species should have anything to do with unemployment and poverty.

Why?

Because everyone is surrounded by varied and extremely wonderful personal computers never before seen in all of human history, from high-end phones, iPhones and iPads to iOffices in iCars, iTrains, iPrivate Jets and back to iHomes.

Can you beat that?

They just need to figure out how to creatively use these giant personal computers that thankfully became their lot, in a business sense and not just for responsibility-prone socializations laden with responsibility (as defined by rich dad, poor dad and not the accounting sense or economic). .

Now you can go ahead and use them to eradicate your unemployment, underemployment and poverty now.

You can even become unemployed if you want to!

Break time is over.

4.0 CONCLUSION

Free traffic sources are one of the best options to use and test your new online business. They can still be converted if used skillfully. Therefore, listen to the Masters and apply the recommendations in those resources presented here.

5.0 SUMMARY

Only when your business is becoming profitable and you are also familiar with the big picture, you may want to expand your business.
