Traffic is the lifeblood of Internet Marketing, and you've undoubtedly heard that other things are the center of your profits, like your list or your sales page or your pricing. Until you can get traffic flowing in to these things, however, none of them will matter at all. That's why it is worth spending time every day to raise your traffic numbers and get more eyes on what you have to offer. Actually, one of the easiest things for you to do is send traffic to your site, but many IM people make it complicated. So check out the following methods that are all about traffic generation and growing it.
Press releases are still a powerful tool. Press releases can be used for many purposes, though some people think they are only for major announcements. A press release should be more than a typical ad or promotion for your business. If you generate actual news for your business, though, issuing pres releases will only seem normal. Come out with new products and run special promotions. Whether you create your own press releases or have a service do it for you, make sure you send them out to a large number of distributions sites. If the release is well crafted and the offer is enticing you'll get more traffic than you can handle.
Search engine optimization or SEO can appear complicated, but it's important to at least learn the basics. SEO is what allows your site to become visible in the top search engines. When your site appears on the first few pages (preferably the first) or the search engines, it can be easily found by people looking for what you're offering. Search engine optimization isn't that difficult, so don't be afraid to learn about it. When studying SEO, don't read material from a few years back as this is largely obsolete already.
Submit your website to the social bookmarking sites. People do not talk about the bookmarking sites the way that they used to. But, people still use them a lot. The best thing about StumbleUpon is that people will get on your site by mistake. If you categorize your site well, you could bring in hundreds of new visitors through this portal alone. Digg is great because people can vote how good your site is.
But, if people do not know that you exist, you will not make sales. One good thing is that you can do this in many different ways. The irritating thing for you is that you cannot not do it immediately. So, get to work.
