How To Drive Organic Traffic That Lasts For Years! (It's not Facboook)
So my first few videos, are gonna be talking about traffic -- due to popular request from you guys. I would say that 60% of you when you filled out the questionnaire wanted to learn about traffic and how to drive traffic. And I am glad you asked that because Traffic is my domain.
I've owned and operated websites and networks that deal with traffic, I've been a traffic & leads broker for several years in my career. So I'm very comfortable talking about traffic and lead generation.
I would say that learning how to generate traffic is the most valuable skill you can have online. You can have everything in place but without driving steady and growing traffic your business is dead in the water.
You can have best product... the best copy... the best video sales letter... the best prices.
But without traffic your business is going nowhere... So let's talk about traffic...
A lot of people think of traffic as the last and final thing in a marketing process...
People spend a lot of time preparing their marketing for the final phase... that is traffic... . .
Building funnels... get the copy perfected... getting the videos done...etc.
But did you know that traffic is not a final ingredient, but an ongoing process in your marketing...
If you have an idea or an offer, you should immediately put up that offer on lead capture page and send some traffic, even if the product is not completely ready...
Because you'll know if that idea is going to work or not by sending some initial traffic to it... and getting some feedback.
So traffic is so important even before the product is fully launched... right from the beginning test phase.
So traffic is not the final thing to do but an ongoing process that will last as long as your business is alive.
I should also mention that one of the most expensive product online is Traffic...I mean literally.
That's why sites like google, facebook, bing and yahoo, and media websites are the most valuable companies in the world.
Because they sell traffic to literally tens of millions of businesses around the world.
A normal online business invests 50 to 60% of their revenue on buying traffic....
If you ask a top producer in an MLM company, or the top affiliate marketer.... they will tell you that 50 to 60% of their revenue goes back into driving traffic.
Now there is Organic traffic... that in the minds of newbies is absolutely free of cost.
Yes, organic traffic does not cost you money but not all organic traffic is free traffic...
There are ways to build your organic traffic to a point where you can make a few sales but it stops when you stop.
For example, Facebook organic traffic will stop immediately when you stop engaging on Facebook.
If you don't believe it, try this -- Stop engaging on facebook for an entire week, and you will see that all of your traffic from facebook will also stop.
Now, Let's talk about organic traffic that is sustainable.... in other words generating organic traffic that is going to last.
Even if you stop creating content, you can still generate organic traffic through Serarch engines.
This process takes time and not many people have patience for this...People want immediate and free traffic...
This is not for those people who want immediate traffic....This is for people who recognize the power of content in the online world...
This is for people who are building a long term business online... I want to give you an example of someone who did this pretty successfully....
Neil Patel is a top online marketer, and you may have heard of him ...
Every time you search for any online marketing stuff on google, you've probably landed on Neil Patels blog... This is organic traffic that lasts for years even if you don't do anything.
We have several sites that gets free traffic and qualified leads from Google every single day as well. We also have paid Google campaigns that generates hundreds of clicks and leads to our web properties.
This is one of the most powerful ways to drive traffic... and it's not from Facebook engagement.
Content is the most powerful way to generate organic traffic that can sustain your business. Specifically blogs, and videos.
Youtube channel is another powerful way to generate organic traffic that lasts for years...
You can work on creating this type of leverage for your business even if you are starting out.
Let me give you a step by step setup process on how to start building real organic traffic...
