Increase Website Traffic and Brand Awareness With Social Media
There are many ways to drive traffic to your website. With literally hundreds of techniques and strategies available today, how do you decide which ones are worth your time and effort? How much time, effort, or skill you’ll have to put into the technique? Time to come back on investment (ROI). Whether you spend time, effort, money, or skill into a traffic driving tactic, it’ll take months, weeks, or even months to see that investment to increase website traffic and sales.
One of the best and easiest ways to drive traffic to your website is to do it the social media way. I’ve been using Twitter for a while now and it’s easy to get into the daily habit of posting relevant and interesting information about what you’re working on or studying at the school. One thing I love about Twitter is that it allows me to find out what my followers are talking about. I can use this information to mine as keywords for search engine rankings and to promote my website. In fact, I often times mention other twitter users who may be “followers” of mine who are also trying to optimize their websites for the search engines.
Another great way to increase website traffic and help drive visitors to your site is to make and distribute useful content. A lot of people say that they write all of their content themselves, but in reality most of it gets tossed around, misplaced, never read, skimmed, ignored, thrown in a folder, and forgotten about. That’s because most people don’t take the time to commit to writing meaningful content and to doing it consistently. If you want to make your website the best it can be, you’ll want to spend the time committing to doing it every day.
You can also use a variety of free tools to increase website traffic to your blog or website. One of the easiest and most effective tools out there for doing this is Google AdSense. You simply place Google ads on your blog and whenever someone clicks on one of those ads, you get paid. It’s really simple and all you have to do is put the ads on your site. I recommend that you run a test run of two or three days and see how much money you get from your ads each day once they are on your site.
Social media can also increase website traffic as well as brand awareness. One of the great things about social media is that the more people who are interested in what you have to say, the more likely it is that they will spread the information around. This is a powerful method of creating brand awareness since many large brands use influencer marketing to drive traffic to their websites.
Social media posts and tweets have proven to increase website traffic through word of mouth. One thing to remember though, is that you need to make sure that you only post quality content on your blog posts and tweets, otherwise you could appear as spam. So always try not to post anything offensive or spam, and always make sure to read the rules of the social media system you are using. If you follow these simple to follow strategies, you will notice a dramatic increase in traffic as well as brand awareness.
