15+ Ways to Boost Your Website Traffic

15+ Ways to Boost Your Website Traffic

1. Facebook remarketing

Facebook is a great promotion tool whether you’re in the B2B or B2C industry. But did you know you can set up remarketing audiences in Facebook? By installing a Facebook tracking pixel on your site you can continue to market to customers who have visited your site. This is a great way to create return traffic to your business blog or website. And you can start remarketing to audiences as small as 100 visitors.

2. Facebook email custom audiences

Staying with Facebook, you can also give that email list of yours a second life. Instead of just using it to blast emails to your customers once in a while, you can upload that list into Facebook and capture the social accounts of anyone that has their email address attached to it. This is a HUGE benefit since it will allow you to market to those users on their mobile devices.

3. Twitter remarketing

Twitter remarketing works in almost the exact same way as Facebook remarketing. Just install the pixel and you can target your sites visitors on Twitter. The main difference is that Twitter will require a higher minimum audience count before you can start advertising towards them. (500 people to be exact)

4. Twitter custom audiences

Just like Facebook, you can target Twitter users on their mobile devices by uploading their emails into Twitter. However, if you cannot get at least 500 users into your custom audience through an email upload, then you won’t have the required minimum to advertise towards them.

5. Twitter Cards

Twitter Cards is a great tool to drive traffic to your site. They are larger tweets that incorporate images and allow you to have buttons built into the tweet. They allow you to have engaging calls to action, attractive images right in the stream, and you can even give them special functionality like having downloads attached directly to the tweet. Tweets with images can get 18 percent more clicks than its text counterparts, so make sure you’re using Twitter Cards.

6. Spend 80 percent of your time on the ad’s headline

Did you know that 8 out of 10 people will read a headline and not read the rest of your ad? If this is the case, you should be spending the majority of your time perfecting the headline to grab your audience’s attention – and driving them to your site. Whether you’re running ads in Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or pay per click, make sure that your headlines are on point.

7. Build an email list

I just told you how you can use emails for social promotion, but they’re also an amazing tool for driving traffic through a newsletter. Make sure that you have a newsletter opt-in on your website. Try using Drip. It’s a great tool and it’s free and very easy to set up.

8. Blog, blog, blog

Blogging really does drive traffic. Blog as much as you can even if if that means you have to keep reposting things until you get all caught up on content. I do this all the time for everyone who’s reading this and hasn’t noticed. I’ve been able to grow my blog from 0 followers to 450+ by consistently doing this in only 3 weeks. But if you’re going to blog a lot at all, you better do number nine.

9. Promote your blog on Facebook

You may have heard that Facebook has cut back on their organic reach. This means that almost no one will see your social media posts on Facebook. Instead, you need to put a little bit of budget behind them. A good strategy is to have a campaign constantly running that is featuring your blog posts and target that campaign towards your custom audience and remarketing audience as described above.

10. Optimize your site for SEO

Trying to manipulate the search-engine rankings is a losing proposition at this point. Instead, what you should be concerned with is making your site look as good as possible for the search engine robots that will be crawling your website. Software like SEMrush can give you a complete SEO audit and show you what you should fix. Spending time on your site’s SEO optimization is always time well spent.

11. Exchange blog posts with other sites

Syndicating your blog on other sites is a great way to drive new audiences to your site. A great way to do this is to search for blogs that are in a similar industry as you and that are in a similar situation in terms of size and audience. Then, you reach out to their editor or site administrator and ask if they’d like to swap blog articles and you each take turns featuring each other’s blogs and linking back to the site. Special measures should be taken to avoid duplicate content, but this is a great way to drive new customers to your site.

12. Automate your emails

Shockingly, marketing automation has only been adopted by 3 to 5 percent of all businesses. Yes, this number is higher if you only look at larger companies but this list is trying to help smaller companies compete with their bigger brethren. So, why aren’t you using marketing automation? It may have been that the costs were too prohibitive or that it seemed too daunting, but there’s help with that. There are new lower cost marketing automation platforms like Autopilot and Hatchbuck that are great for small businesses.

13. Become a contributor

Contributing to other websites is a great way to drive traffic to your site. To become a contributor you need to start small and work your way up. Also, you need to hone your craft when it comes to writing. To do this you need to be writing every single day. The more you write, the better you’ll become, and the better your chances will be at becoming a contributor.

14. Create a quiz

Quizzes are fun pieces of content that work really well at driving engagement with your visitors. Plus, they’re a fun to promote on social media using the techniques presented earlier in this article. Sites like Quizzr allow you to create free quizzes to then post on your blog and drive traffic to your site.

15. Host a webinar or webcast

Regardless of your industry, I can guarantee there’s a topic you have enough expertise on that your customers would come to listen to you speak. The trick is to identify this topic and then to create a fun and engaging presentation.

16. Create a podcast

If you’re worried you can’t present to a live audience or develop the right message, then instead consider a podcast. Podcasts are great ways of distributing your expertise and are a surefire way of driving traffic to your site — but you need to be consistent and promote it.

When you first start off, it will seem like you’re talking into a black hole and no one is listening to you. But if you stay persistent and promote your podcast on social media, your audience will grow and your future episodes will gain more and more listeners.

Another great trick to getting a boost in your podcast audience is to invite a guest that has a large social following and asking them to help you promote it. You’d be surprised who would say yes to joining your podcast, if you only ask them.

17. Find partners in your industry

There are usually dozens of partnership opportunities for any business out there. The trick is to find those partners and establish a working relationship. To try this out, go to Unbounce and sign up to partner with them. They’re a landing page creation software that helps companies optimize their marketing campaigns. It’s free to sign up as a partner and they even featured you in their partner section. Plus, they also allow you to do a little write up about your website!

  2. Ok and how can you actually make money on wp.com? Eventually bloggers move on to WP.Org I believe. And here you only have limited space for data and limited choice on themes.

Your wordpress.com dashboard will still exist but any new content you produce they won’t be notified of and it won’t show up in wordpress reader.

That’s really all it takes which is to keep going no matter what happens!
