Your website is one of the most important things to you. Maybe it’s your source of revenue or maybe it’s just a place where you like to put up pictures of cute cats. Whatever it is, you enjoy putting content out there for the world to see.
But what’s the point of creating and posting content if only your grandma is going to read it? No offense grandma, but we’re dreaming a little bit bigger here.
There are many ways out there for you to bring more viewers to your website. And some are going to work for you and some aren’t. But no matter how you process it, you have to put in hard work to increase your audience numbers.
It’s just how it is.
But below are some of the top ways to increase your website traffic to make your life a little bit easier. Read on, my friends!
Work with Other Influencers and Write Guest Posts.
One of the absolute most effective ways to bring a ton of new viewers to your website is to post on other sites in your niche. Especially if their site is more popular than yours, you should be contacting other digital influencers, engaging with them, and proposing to write a post for their site.
When their followers read your post, they will automatically be drawn to your website and boom! You’ve got more traffic and everything is great. Be sure to keep up the relationship with influencer for future posts and collaboration opportunities.
Then, Invite Them to Guest Post on Your Site.
So, you’ve got this great relationship going with another blogger or influencer in your niche and you’re wondering what to do next.
Invite them to post on your site.
This is fantastic for a couple of reasons.
A) You’ll have someone who’s likely more influential than you posting on your site, increasing your site’s credibility in the eyes of viewers.
B) They will most likely be more than happy to promote it in their weekly newsletter or social media channels.
And C) You get great content for your blog (that you don’t even have to write).
Yes, You Have to Be on Social Media.
Have you been telling yourself that you don’t really need to be on social media to succeed? And to that I say…how’s that rock you’ve been living under for the past couple of years
Being active on many social media accounts is the key to bring more traffic to your site and building an engaged audience.
Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Musical.ly, etc.
You should be active on most, if not all, of these social media platforms.
That way, when you create a new piece of content, you can automatically share on all of the relevant channels and bring many more views to your site. Never underestimate the power of social media to determine the success of your website!
Post More Than You Think You Should.
Of course, you know that you have to post on your website to generate traffic and sustain an audience that consistently reads your articles. But you may be thinking that it’s enough to post maybe once or twice a week on your site.
I’m going to tell you that that’s probably not enough.
It’s recommended that you post as many high-quality articles a week to generate more traffic to your site. After all, more activity on your site is almost always a good thing.
However, don’t just post to post. Make sure what you put on your site is something that you’re proud of and you think your audience will appreciate. So, that article about how cats should eat more peanut butter is probably not on the list. Maybe next time.
Now that you have some of the top traffic strategies in your head, you’re fully prepared to take your site to the next level. What are you waiting for? Get out there and change the world.
