Proven Strategies To Boost Traffic To Your Blog

Boost traffic to your blog

Proven Strategies To Boost Traffic To Your Blog

Sometimes we all Need A Boost for one thing or another. Now, if you follow my blog posts, by now you have learned how to get your business started, find the best business name and create a Savvy Website that attracts visitors. Maybe you missed my posts. No worries, head over to my blog and take a look.

Adding a blog to your company’s website can help inform your customers about the products and services you offer. Keep fresh content on your website, and increase your traffic. If you’ve worked hard on your company blog and still aren’t seeing the results you had hoped, here are a few proven strategies that can help give your traffic a boost.

[bctt tweet=”How to make sure that your blog goes viral!” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

The first thing you want to do is make sure that your blog goes viral. You may think that you’re adding viral content to your blog by writing about trending topics, but there’s more to it than that. If you pay attention to what other blogs are doing (that actually are viral blogs), you will get a few pointers on what you should change about your own blog, such as…

The Compelling Headline

What makes you want to click on a link and read a blog post? A compelling headline. This is a concept that has been around long before the Internet was a thing. How do you think that advertisers worked back in the day when the only resources they had available were newspaper ads? They wrote headlines that would leave the customer wanting to know more. You should do the same when you write a blog post so that the person has no other choice but to click the link.

Clickbait

Whaaat, Clickbait? Yes, Another proven method of increasing blog traffic is using clickbait. Yes, it has become a dirty word among online advertisers, however, if done correctly, you can use clickbait to your advantage without tricking your target audience into visiting your site. You do that by simply backing up the click-through link with honest and truthful content.

Clickbaits are quite common in social media. The basic concept of ‘clickbait’ is to create a melodramatic title for an online article so as to manipulate people into clicking the link and reading the content. Honestly, clickbait is a smart idea for publicity but, the way it has taken over social media over bland content is quite annoying.

Here’s an example of a Clickbait headline: “Man tries to hug a wild lion’ (omg! why did he do that?)”. Now, odds are most people would click on this link to read the story. The storyline would need to lead into quality content that is congruent with the brand of the website.

Content Length-Word Count

The next tip is to make sure you have the right content length to make it viral. An online viral content publisher showed that they get the most shares with content that ranges from 3000 to 10000 words. They received more than 7.5k shares with that content compared to just under 5k shares with blogs that had less than 1000 words.

Remember the more words you have, the more opportunities you will have to add SEO (Search Engine  Optimization) keywords and phrases, backlinks, and other helpful extras that will bring more traffic to your company blog. However, many blog readers tend to zone out when they have thousands of words to read. Some appreciate shorter content that gets to the point faster. So, which is truly better?

Even though shorter posts may seem more popular, the best option is still more words. While everyone else is still writing 500-word posts, your longer and detailed blogs will stand out among your competitors. Plus, longer posts are great for organic leads which will make your content shareable and evergreen. That means that your blog content will have staying power and it can be repurposed multiple times.

Content is King

Aside from an alluring headline, clickbait, and word count, you need to have an amazing idea for your blog topic so that it will go viral on social media. To do that, you need to learn more about your target audience. What are their interests? Their age groups? What type of content could you write that will get your consumers to click the link to find out more? If you’re still unsure about content ideas, you can visit websites such as Buzzsumo or Ubersuggest to generate ideas for you.

Check out the comments on your company’s Facebook page or read up on reviews. Are there products or services that your target audience would like to see from your brand? Are there issue that they would like to resolve? Gather ideas from these resources to help give your traffic a boost.

The best thing that you can do for your company’s blog is to use what works best for your brand. If you had a surge in visitor’s months ago with a post that contained humor, adding more humor. Your blog doesn’t always need just facts, humor can help. People like to read something that’s upbeat and lighthearted occasionally, and humorous posts are more likely to be shared on social media.

Conclusion

One final thought, experiment with your blog and find out what works with your target audience and what doesn’t. This is a learning experience. You won’t always have the very best blog posts on the web, and that’s okay. Just work hard toward creating interesting content that your customers will want to share with others.

Six Savvy Ways To Market Your Website

Savvy Website

Six Savvy Ways To Market Your Website

You want your company’s website to reach out to as many people as possible. Its primary purpose is to be a virtual advertisement that teaches visitors more about what the brand has available. If you aren’t marketing your website correctly, no one is seeing your content. And that means your website isn’t doing its job. Let’s discuss six savvy things that you can do to help market your website and boost the number of visitors you receive.

[bctt tweet=”Doing It Right: Six Fundamental Ways To Do Website Marketing” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Search Engine Optimization:

This is the process of increasing the visibility of your website in search engine results. By optimizing keyword phrases, you can help rank your link to the top of search engine result pages such as Google or Bing. Since most people do not go beyond the first page of their search results, being at the top really matters when it comes to SEO.           

There are several ways you can improve your website’s SEO. You can improve your existing content to include more keyword phrases. Add a blog to add fresh content to your site, and increase the number of backlinks or inbound links that are on your webpage. Inbound links are links that your website receives from other websites. They help to improve your online reputation.

Blogging:

The second thing on our list is blogging. Having a company blog on your website will provide you with a place to inform your target audience of everything new. And keeping consistent content on your page will help keep visitors coming back for more. The wonderful thing about blogging is that your content doesn’t always have to be about the company. It can be about something distantly related to your brand that is popular or trending right now.

PPC or Pay-Per-Click:

This is an online marketing strategy that’s been around for years, yet it’s still very effective. PPC advertising can bring in traffic to your site from search engines. You pay a fixed price for every click your ad receives. The goal is to convert the visitor to see a return on your investment.

Google Adwords uses PPC and allows you to set a budget (such as five dollars a day or a maximum of ten cents per click). You choose the keyword phrases and Google helps you get your company’s ad in front of your target audience, no matter where they may be on the web.

Facebook Ads:

On average, more than 483 million people use Facebook every day. That’s great news for companies who wish to advertise on the social media giant. Facebook ads can help you direct your ads to members of your target audience. You can choose your ads to show to people in a certain location, age demographic, or fans of other similar companies to your own. It’s a great, affordable way to bring new traffic to your website.

Retargeting Ads:

This is a method where you place a tracking cookie on your visitor’s computer. When they leave your website, they will see ads from your company, allowing them to click and come back if there were something they missed. This advertising method can help you reach visitors who leave without making a purchase, which can often be around 98% of your total visitors.

If you’ve spent any time online you’ve seen retargeting ads yourself. You may visit an online store, looking for an item to buy and then leave the website. A few minutes later while on Facebook, an ad shows up on your wall for the exact store or the exact item you were looking for. This keeps your company or the item the visitor wants, fresh in their minds. And that will increase the chances of the visitor coming back to buy the product.

YouTube:

Creating a video about your company and posting it on YouTube can help expose your brand to others in a creative and convenient way. Google will index the content and others can embed your video on their blogs to share on social media. While not everyone has a video to go viral, you can still use YouTube as a resourceful tool to help get your name out there.

YouTube also gives you the option to advertise on other videos by purchasing targeting ads which are relevant to your business. If you sell athletic apparel for example, you could purchase a targeted ad for a video featuring sports news. People interested in athletics viewing the news video will see your ad and will be more inclined to purchase something from you than someone in another demographic.

How to Grow a Targeted Follower Base on Instagram

Instagram is becoming increasingly popular. It’s a useful social media site for any entrepreneur that wants to remain updated with the latest marketing channels. Grow a Targeted Follower Base is not that difficult.

As with most social media platforms, the more followers that you’ve got the more effective your social media marketing will be. So, to begin increasing your Instagram followers, you need to focus on a target audience.Grow A Targeted Following

Here’s a set of simple tips to begin growing a targeted follower base on Instagram.

Start Liking Posts Related to Your Niche

The first way to begin increasing your follower base on Instagram is to start liking posts. Like posts that are related to your niche industry.

For example, if you sell products for internet marketing, you’d want to like posts related to internet marketing.

Liking other posts is a good way to gain attention, especially from industry leaders or people with more followers than you.

Instead of simply following an industry leader, you should go through and like 5 to 10 of their posts. Make sure that you leave a comment on at least one of these posts.

Respond Promptly and Leave Authentic Comments

Commenting is a good way to gain followers, retain followers, and increase engagement. You should respond to comments as soon as possible. You can set up email notifications so that you never miss out on these comments.

Also, don’t be afraid to comment on other people’s posts. As mentioned, this can be effective when you start liking other posts.

While these comments are useful, they need to be authentic. Don’t leave a generic comment as a response.

For example, if someone leaves you a compliment, don’t respond with, “thanks!”

Instead, you should come up with a real response. It only takes a few minutes, but can have a major effect on follower engagement and your overall online reputation.

Create Your Own Hashtags and Get People to Use Them

You can start building your own community on Instagram by creating your own hashtags. Though, you also need to get people to start using them.

For starters, you can create a hashtag related to your targeted audience or niche industry. Combining abbreviations and words is a good way to create original hashtags.

You can also search for hashtags. When you create an original hashtag, perform a search to ensure that it’s not already in use.

Find Out What Your Audience Wants

If you know what your target audience wants, it’s easier to create Instagram posts that they’ll enjoy. You can start by looking at who they follow.

Look for Instagram accounts for other businesses in your industry that are followed by your target audience. See what types of posts these people put out. Also, see what types of posts your audience tend to share and like.

Continue to Release New Posts Each Day

If you want to target a specific audience, you need to remain consistent with your posts. Continue to release new posts each day.

You should also pay attention to the time of the day that you receive the most engagement from your followers. You might find that your target audience is more active during a specific time of the day. Use this to your advantage and schedule your posts to be released at this time each day.

Use High-Quality Photos and Videos

Don’t forget to use high-quality photos and videos. If the photos that you use appear to be professionally-taken photos, you’ll be able to gain more followers.

People perceive the value and quality of your products or services based on what you put out there. If you use grainy photographs, people will assume that you don’t have a quality business, as you can’t afford quality photos.

Start making better use of your Instagram account by focusing on your target audience. If you’d like even more internet marketing tips and a system for getting conversion-ready prospects, then click here to learn about my done-for-you system.

[bctt tweet=”The purpose of life is to be useful, honorable, compassionate, and make a difference.” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Here are some tips from my friend, Michelle Pescosolido that all great Internet Marketers should live by to be successful.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR   Michelle Pescosolido

Michelle & Bill Pescosolido are successful internet marketers who have earned multiple 6 & 7 figure income streams online.  They both are committed to helping entrepreneurs around the world achieve success.  This site and all articles on this site are here to help you as a reader and are also here for our team member’s to share.

Trust is generally low among consumers. In fact, about 32% of consumers have trust for businesses and only about 13% trust advertising. So, if people don’t trust advertisements who do they trust? Their family, friends, and co-workers.

You can take advantage of this trust. By establishing trust with your target demographic and making it a priority, you can dramatically increase referrals and word of mouth advertising.

Why should prioritize customer trust? Because it’s key to repeat business. This is one of the top factors that lead customers to either stay or leave a business.

Make Sure That You’ve Got a Quality Product or Service

Customers want quality. If you’re purchasing a pair of pants and find that they’re uncomfortable, you probably wouldn’t purchase the same brand in the future. This applies to your products or services.

It’s hard to be impartial about the quality of your own products or services. The best way to find out if they’re living up to the expectations of your customers is to get their feedback. When you send a “thank you” email following a purchase, include a link to a simple online survey.

Keep track of the input that you get from customers. When it comes time to revise or update your products or services or release a new item, you can use this feedback to improve the quality. You may even find additional features that your customers want that you wouldn’t have considered.

Don’t Use Misleading Claims in Your Sales Copy

Your sales copy impacts your conversions. But, it also impacts customer trust. Don’t use misleading claims or promises that you can’t deliver in your sales copy. If you expect customers to trust you, you need to be truthful.

Truthful sales copy is beneficial for both you and your customer. By giving honest claims, stats, and figures, you’re setting realistic expectations for your products or services.

Solve Customer Complaints As Soon As Possible

When a customer has a problem with a purchase, you should resolve the issue as soon as possible. This helps you establish a positive relationship with a customer that may otherwise take their business elsewhere and damage your online reputation.

Contact the customer as soon as you discover their complaint. Respond promptly. Use their first name, if possible. Don’t make excuses and don’t try to pass the blame onto the customer. You simply need to fix the problem in any way possible—even if this means giving a refund.

Don’t Bad Mouth Your Competition

If you’re discussing your competition, either directly to a customer or in your sales copy, don’t be disrespectful. Customers are smart. They see trash-talking as a method to make your products look better than the competition.

Instead of focusing on your competition, you should focus on your own qualities. If you can highlight the strengths of your products or services, there’s no reason to bad mouth your competition.

Always Stick to Your Promises

The final suggestion for establishing trust is to always stick to your promises. When you make a guarantee, you need to stand by it. The same is true of any claims that you include in your sales copy, promises that you use in marketing and personal guarantees that give to customers.

When you say that your product or service can deliver a specific result, you need to ensure that you can keep that promise.

Establishing trust with your customers doesn’t need to be difficult. Keep these tips in mind. If you want access to more powerful marketing tips, as well as a way to generate conversion-ready marketing prospects every month, then click here to learn about my done-for-you system.

Creating an Effective Social Media Posting Schedule

I can remember in my early days of getting started in my home business struggling with staying on task in my daily routine of productive activities. My coach suggested Creating an Effective Social Media Posting Schedule. So I started researching and monitoring when my friends where on their Social Media outlets in order to learn peoples daily routine. The frequency of your social media posts can directly impact the number of followers that you get and keep.Effective Social Media

If you post too infrequently or frequently, you’ll lose followers. You’ll also have trouble getting people to take notice of your social media accounts. For this reason, you need to come up with a schedule.

[bctt tweet=”Do You Have A Social Media Posting Schedule? ” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

A social media posting schedule takes into consideration the following factors:

  • The best time of the day to post
  •  The best day of the week
  •  The topics you should post about
  •  The percentage of promotional content

Determine the Best Time of the Day and Best Day of the Week

The best time of the day to post will vary, depending on the social media platform that you use. Also, your target audience may have different internet preferences.

Don’t forget to take the time difference into consideration. 80% of the US population are in the Eastern or Central time zones. If you’re in California and want to target the largest audience, you’ll want to plan your posts based on EST time.

Engagement tends to peak at the following times during the weekdays:

  • 9 AM EST – overall engagement
  •  1 PM EST – most shares
  •  3 PM EST – most clicks

Next, consider the best day of the week to post. Monday through Wednesday, people are less active on social media. The majority of the population is too busy getting into the work week.

By Thursday, people are looking forward to the weekend and are more likely to spend time browsing on social media.

User engagement peaks on the weekends. This goes against previous studies that showed higher engagement during the weekdays. But, trends change over time.

The bottom line is that you should post between Thursday and Sunday to increase engagement. You should also plan at least one post for 9 AM, and subsequent posts around 1 and 3 PM.

Find Topics That Your Target Audience Will Enjoy

Along with considering the time of the day and the days of the week to post, you need to consider the topics of your posts. Find topics that your target audience will enjoy.

The first place to start is with the platform that you’re using. Facebook makes it easy to share just about anything, but Instagram and Pinterest are more image-centric. This means that content with a compelling image included in the post will be more effective on these platforms.

The topics should also be related to your niche and provide real value to your readers. This could include:

  • News
  •  Tips and tutorials
  •  Advice and suggestions

Essentially, it needs to contain quality content with beneficial information. What is the benefit to the viewer to click and read your post?

You can explore the most popular topics by performing searches through each social media platform. Each of these networks, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, includes a search box. Watch for a follow up blog post that will provide a neat search tool.

Type a keyword into the search box and look at the top results. View the profiles of the original posters of the top posts. Look for posters that tend to share content related to your niche and see what topics receive the most likes, shares, and retweets.

Balance Your Promotional Content

Along with your schedule and topics, you need to balance the use of promotional content. It’s a perfectly acceptable business practice to use self-promotional posts on social media. But, if you use too many promotional posts, you’ll lose followers. Try using curiosity statements or questions to keep your audience engaged.

20% appears to be the median where engagement increases or decreases based on the frequency of promotional posts. This means you should plan one promotional post out of every five posts.

If you post once per day, this is one promotional post per week. If you post several times per day, you’ll share a promotional post every other day.

Start using a social media posting schedule to increase the effectiveness of your social media marketing efforts. Along with these suggestions, you can get more internet marketing tips and a system for generating more internet prospects by clicking here to learn about my done-for-you system.

Take some time to get to know your target audience’s interests, routines so you get the best engagement with your posts.
