If you've had a business for awhile now, you know how important it is to have people seeing your offers. Without it, you can't make any sales which is not only discouraging but obviously detrimental to any business – yes, understanding the ways to get more traffic is vital.
The challenge is that most people don't realize that while it's vitally important to get “traffic” to these offers: you always want to start any business online strategically – and it starts with creating the content that people will consume on your own platform.
Now you may be asking yourself, ‘What does this have to do with “ways to get more traffic”?
12 Ways To Get Traffic – Content On Your Own Platform
Look, right now, social media is all the rage.
You will see people telling you the ways to get more traffic is to:
- Gain YouTube subscribers
- Grow your Facebook following,
- Triple your Instagram followers,
- Grow your Tik Tok account
…just to name a few but and so they sell you products to grow your social media accounts but here's the deal:
You are at the mercy of all of these social media platforms and in an instant, you can be shut down without warning – it's an awful feeling – and it's happened to countless online entrepreneurs including yours truly, which brings me to the point of today's email: creating content on your own platform.
I have worked with thousands of students who have come to me believing they have an online business but have NO personal platform where they own the content. A personal platform online is one of the main ways to get traffic and sadly is gravely overlooked.
Creating a successful traffic strategy and developing efficient ways to get more traffic starts with having your own platform – no matter how simple, or how small.
From your own platform, you can control and grow exponentially, without the fear of losing your content, and your followers.
And that’s why you need an internet homebase, a headquarters if you will. This is where a blog comes in.
A home base is a blog where you control the content. You can create content and be in charge of part of your content distribution.
Additionally, blogging content is EVERGREEN.
That means that 3 months from now (or 6- or 12- or even 2 years later), you can still be getting the same or more traffic to your blog posts.
Compare that with something like Facebook, which gives your post a very short shelf-life – and once it’s gone from the newsfeed nobody will find it unless they are looking for it specifically.
Your content is lucky to last more than a day on Facebook!
So creating content on your blog has a longer-term ROI.
So if you don't have a blog from where you can create your own BRAND, share your own voice, and grow your own list to send offers to, not to mention use some other stellar traffic secrets that we talk about in this report, then you're missing a foundational piece of your internet strategy.
