What can be the source of traffic for your website? – PC based marketing
No website can be successful without traffic, but how can a website owner drive traffic to their site using PC based marketing techniques? One of the most obvious methods is to ensuring that your website has good SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization, in order to rank high on search engine results pages. Ideally, you want your site to be on the first page of the search engines results for specific keywords. SEO has the advantage of being a free, or low cost option for driving traffic to your site.
Other free options include using links place on social media outlets and in forums. While this can help drive traffic to your site, it must be done in a discrete manner lest you may end up getting blocked. You also run the risk of alienating other people on both social media and the forums, in order to keep the traffic flowing to your site you must provide visitors with quality content. If you have the talent for making videos that have the chance to go viral that can be a great, low cost, way of driving traffic to your site.
If you’re not good at making videos, why not advertise on other people’s videos? YouTube can be a great source of driving traffic to your site whether from your own videos or by advertising in other people’s videos. As online games become more and more popular, placing ads in online games becomes an increasingly popular method of driving traffic to websites. Beyond video and online game advertising, many offline software packages and games are offered for free and include small ads. By purchasing ads in these offline games and software you can effectively bring visitors to your site.
Pay Per Click or PPC marketing is another effective way to drive traffic to your site. With PPC marketing you place ads with a PPC marketing firm who then places the ads on other websites. The advantage here is that you only have to pay when someone clicks your ad.
