Generating Traffic On A Budget 24/7

Building traffic on a budget for the novice marketer, can be overwhelming but beneficial if you do your homework and some research.

Speaking from experience I knew nothing about marketing online and didn’t know where to start. But the most important thing was for me, was taking action and getting my feet wet.

Marketing is like anything else, IE…when you buy a car you check the carfax to get some history on the vehicle you’re considering to buy.

Thankfully, the internet has provided a world-wide platform that each of us can use to express our creativity, and do it for free in most cases.  There are  tons of directions to start from but I am going to give you some simple and inexpensive ways to attract traffic, if you’re on a budget.  Keep in mind there are free traffic that may help some, but you get what you pay for.  However, the more you learn the more valuable you become, the more money you make.

In fact, it’s easier to get tons of free traffic today, than it was couple years ago thanks to sites like Youtube, Myspace, Facebook and twitter.  You don’t have to spend big money to get big traffic any more.  Keep in mind and figure out what sort of budget you got to work with and work within your means.

1. The website CraigsList is www.craigList.org – place classified ads on there site to direct visitors to your website. Advertise under small business ads. Be sure to read the terms and conditions carefully.

Try to advertise under the 27 major cities within the U.S.

Here’s another resource you can use for free advertisement, www.backpage.com, I have used this many times and had some good results from it.  Placement in business section or Business Opportunity section.

2. Online video sites like Youtube are exploding on the scene like crazy and it attracts a lot of free traffic. Plus it’s a free service to open an account. Make sure you open only one account, this is operated by google and you don’t want to be band from this free service.

Use your movie maker to download your video.   This software comes with most windows version computers.

3. Press Release and Article Writing is the next method of attracting traffic and redirecting it to your site. Check Google for free press release sites.  Placing articles with Ezine, Goarticle are just a start.  {Optional}: Here’s a helpful ArticleWriter tool , to help you, when you’re ready to place articles.

When you write your press release or article use your keywords and the search engines will list it in some cases on the search rankings, many times in the top ten for those certain keywords.

4. Every business MUST have a blog– very simple reasons a web blog is an online publishing platform that allows bloggers to create and post content. Rather it is for personal or business, these published content are placed on blogs with various topics and you are able to link to others blogs.

You can get free traffic from search engines, social marketing websites, and other blogs by following with your link.  This is the easiest way to quickly generate leads and traffic for your business without spending a ton of money.  It may take a little expense out of pocket, to own your blog and you control it.  WordPress.org is the most popular blog to use and a web host is required.  After reading this entire post, if you want to know more about wordpress.org (Click here -to direct you to WordPress.org how to start from scratch.)

Free blog services available like Blogger.com or WordPress.com software, but keep in mind you don’t own it, and they can shut it down upon there request.

5. Post on Forums on your topic and link back to your blog.

6. Encourage your readers to share their thoughts, ideas and feedback by commenting.  Don’t be shy to request a command action, ie..“leave me a sweet comment, if you liked my post.”

7. Add a signature to all your outgoing email with a link to your blog.  Few places to look, gmail.com and aol.com

8. Link to your blog from other social networking sites – Facebook, Myspace and Twitter are the most popular ones to start with.

9. Join Mybloglog.com and Google friend connect and add the widget to your blog.

10. Promote your RSS feed to sites that allow submissions.

11. Claim your blog on Technorati.com

12. Learn about the basic components on your blog like pings and trackbacks (see http://codex.wordpress.org/Introduction_to_Blogging).

These are some of the basic online tools to use for now.  So start building your marketing pipeline now, because this is where the magic happens….  Take it slow and gradually work your way threw the list, until you feel comfortable with what is expected of you.  Remember this is your business, so treat it like you invested all your hard earn money into it, so it’ll eventually  make you more money from more of your clients automatically generating 24/7 for you.

I hope this has been helpful to you and gave you some direction.  Let others know and  go ahead and share this and leave me a sweet comment and tweet. I appreciate it!

Blessings To your Success!

    Absolutely Lani!

    Great list for people to add to their
    “learn this little by little” list!

    You outlined a bunch of really good
    things people can leverage to their
    simple message out to targeted groups
    of people.

    Remember at the end of the day…
    your message must be on point,
    targeted to offer solutions to ONLY
    your target market… and we’re all
    PEOPLE – meaning, we are attracted
    to other GOOD PEOPLE who are interested
    in us – before and more so than any
    widget, tactic or comp plan etc…

    CONNECT.
    Inspire.
    Uplift.
    Motivate.
    FEEL others.

    It’s a little piece of the human condition.
    Art + Science. And the magic is all formula:

    Loverage + Leverage = Mahalo! and O’Hana!

    See ya! Keep rocking Lani!!

  15. Lani says:

    Aloha Kimberly, the pleasures mine and thanks for your great input and stopping by. Lani 🙂

  16. That’s a really really top notch list you’ve put together Lani! Each of those pointers is huge huge topics in and of themselves. I’ve found its best to offer a top-down view like this but also to remind people that if they try to dive into all of these at once they’re going to be seriously overwhelmed. We eat the elephant one bite at a time, and in this case one approach at a time due to the learning curve. Thanks for the great summary!
    Kimberly
