I have talked about a few of these already but just gonna go over them a little differently than last time to get traffic. Know that traffic is hard for many new bloggers or your links can be extremely hard. I like to share with you what has worked for me so far or a few different ways I have learned in my research. So Let’s get that traffic headed your way with these different ways I found for you.
I know I have talked about this first one a few times already, so don’t go running for the hills once I mention the name. I want to explain a little different way to use this site. YouTube. First, it’s not making videos. This one is taking advantage of what some creators are not using. To do this you need to first find videos in your niche. Then find the popular videos with almost a few thousand views. Make sure they are still getting views, but older videos are better.
If you think about Youtube logically, why would anyone want to miss out on over 1 billion, yes 1 billion unique visitors a month? This is a massive amount of visitors that you can get a hold of a lot of those to your blog or link. Over 100 hours uploaded every minute. The best thing is a lot of these creators don’t have any marketing skills, unlike us(some further knowledge than others yes). They are getting all these views and doing nothing with all their views. That’s is where this new method (well new to my blog) comes in. We are going to reach out to these creators, and take advantage of all that traffic.
What we need to do is make sure we target the videos with a lot of views and in our niche. Reach out to those creators. Make an offer to them. Offer something a month in exchange for them adding your link in the description of their video. Things to look for when finding a video you want.
- In your niche
- Not already a link in the description
- Video with at least 5-15 thousand views
- Trending upwards in the stats
- Older videos with a good history
If you don’t know what to do or how to go about it. This would be a good job to hire a virtual assistant for. Otherwise, go through and find all the types of videos yourself and message them on their social media of choice or some have an email for business enquiries in the description. One good extension that helps you get more in-depth information about the stats is videoIQ. No affiliate link just got to search for the extension. If you can get your link in 25-50 videos getting a few thousand views, that turns into a lot of traffic to your blog or link.
Pinterest can drive a lot of traffic to your site or link. Just keep persistent on there just as you do on any other social media and you can get some awesome results. If you don’t have the time, the best app made me get so many pins out there and I saw the traffic from Pinterest after I started using Tailwind. Create, schedule, measure.
Take advantage of bloggers that allow you to promote yourself on their sites. I had made a post about a blog site before that offered this and today I have another for you. Just make sure you go and check out other peoples blogs as well. EarnmoneywithJessica. Always look for more. Get to know your fellow bloggers and help one another out. We are all here to help each other out not stab each other in the back for traffic. Even a little boost of traffic from another blogger will lead you to your own followers as the word on your blog gets out more.
That leads me to the next one, blog carnivals. I have noticed a lot of my followers are in the same niche and this is something great for us. A group of bloggers in the same niche get together and decide on a topic to write about in a certain amount of time. Then the ones that are doing the writing each put the post on their blogs so it gets all the new names shared among the new sites and new followers. A good way to get your name out there and bring in lots of traffic. This one I really might take advantage of.
Solo ads are a great way to get an email out describing your blog, or product when you don’t have a list of your own. I take advantage of these for my affiliate marketing. I noticed a lot of people on these sites are all usually in the same line of niches so it goes well with anyone you email on these sites. I found a really good one where I got a very great return on my email. Adexchangeteam, is one of the best return rates plus they have given away the most free ads. 10 free banner ads, 10 free solo ads and 10 free login ads. Plus they give the most for surfing. I have over 30000.00 points to purchase more ads when I need to. If you’re just starting out, or for an affiliate link, these ad exchange programs work so good.
To do a banner properly you need to first make your banner then upload it to a site that gives it a secure https to use on the ad exchange sites. I found a good one so far called secure banner hosting.
Last let’s take a look at torrent marketing. This one is new to me. I have used torrents for years just never thought to use them for marketing. Really simple to use though. Put a bunch of blog posts together or just a taste of your work. Torrents are made for bigger files usually, however, I have seen smaller ones in there. But make sure you use keywords in your title when you upload it to your torrent client like bit torrent. Also a small description of what your torrent is about make sure to use keywords in there also.
