How to create traffic
This is what I learned from Dave Wood today. Did I say he's my favorite person right now btw? Let's begin: Why do people go to websites? Your site is an island, and you need to create bridges to get to your island (traffic). There are many ways to get to your island, and that's how many ways you want to get traffic. In marketing, there are only so many things that get you traffic, and you need to use all of them. The bridge you can use--is a link. If there's a link on your site, people will click it. Create lots of links and create links people will look at. A LINK IS A BRIDGE. How many kinds of links can you use? Article, picture,video, social media... These are links that build into your website. If you want trraffic, YOU'VE GOT TO BUT NEW UNIQUE MATERIAL LINKS EVERYDAY. BUT HOW AUTHORITATIVE ARE THE LINKS? How do you get a more authoritive link? It' s determined by how many bridges you have to it? That's the only thing that controls how much traffic you get on your website! In order to succeed you must: blog daily. Create good content, and you will create the links that people want to click. Create unique content--people want to be entertained more than they want to be informed. Inform them, but don't make it boring informative content. Be yourself--your personality is what people want to connect with. Just wanted to jot those things down for ya. Excelsior, G.A.B.E.
