Building Traffic to Your Internet Business – 5 Ways

by doug on 28 May, 2009

Building traffic to your internet business is critical to the success of any online project.

There are many ways to build traffic to you website.  Here are just a few:

  1. Set up a blog
  2. Post regularly to your blog
  3. Use article marketing
  4. Leave comments on other people’s blogs
  5. Leave comments on forums

There are many others, the above are some of my favourite traffic building methods.

Notice that they are all free.

You can also buy traffic, and I do that as well.  This is not really building traffic though, because when you stop paying, the traffic stops too.

The five methods listed above work for ever.

These methods have several advantages:

  • Free
  • Permanent
  • Easy
  • Builds credibility for your business
  • Builds a relationship with potential customers
  • Casts your traffic net far and wide

These free traffic-building methods also have disadvantages:

  • Hard work
  • Takes time to show results

The good news is that you can spread these activities over time, although this will slow results.  For maximum business acceleration, work through these methods as quickly as possible.

You can also hire people to help you.  For example, you can hire people to write articles for you.  Just be sure that they write at a level of quality that you can be proud of, what ever level that is, because when you hire writers, they become the voice (or at least once voice) of your company.

You should use faster methods to get traffic to your internet business website as well, especially in the beginning when building a blog and posting articles will do little to get traffic.  This is only a short term problem.

Putting a free traffic program into place is a great long term strategy, so start early and keep up the effort in building your blog and posting articles.
