If you didn’t already know (and if you don’t listen please) traffic is essential for any affiliate and performance marketer. Buying traffic is one easy way to generate traffic, but as any half-assed marketer will tell you, organic traffic is the best place to start. So, without much ado, here are several amazing places to start on how to generate traffic to your site.
Blog Titles: How to Write Winners Even if you Suck at It From the Traffic Generator Queen herself, Ana Hoffman, this is a great intro for those who aren’t the best copywriters in the world. Highly recommended for those who don’t want to spend time reading a dozen books on power-words.
An Insider’s Look at a Viral Blog Post. Great post of Benny Lewis who got 220,000 visitors to one page called “29 life lessons learned in travelling the world for 8 years straight”. What I really like about this is that he’s not really an “expert” in my opinion but has some really great tips.
How to Become a Niche Rockstar. This is posted on the ViperChill website, the home a great viral marketing program. It’s great advice on how to focus on one topic, becoming a self-proclaimed expert on that topic. I particularly love this part, “Within 24 hours I had five requests for meet-ups, a conference invite, and a woman offering to cook for me. All of which, of course, were much appreciated.”
How to Get Free Traffic Without Google. Great video series that I highly recommend you take a look at. Maybe some of you already know this stuff, maybe some of you don’t. Either way, a great refresher, and highly recommended.
