Bringing organic traffic to a website is a challenge most business owners encounter, especially now, when there is a lot of competition, and Google’s algorithm keeps changing. The only choice is to put up for paid ads to get traffic to your site. But, of course, some businesses don’t want to spend much money to boost their traffic.

USE KEYWORDS

The first thing when starting a website is to use keywords to drive some traffic to it. You can use keywords related to your products and niche to make it specific.

There are tools available in the market that will show you the best keyword that will help drive traffic to your site.

However, not all keywords with high search volume will be able to bring attention to your site. It’s because many websites are using it, and competing with larger companies for the keyword would be difficult.

The best thing to do is to use keywords not only related to your website’s niche, product, and blog post but with a small search volume. These keywords will bring you a small amount of traffic, but they are definite customers.

OPTIMIZE FOR SEARCH ENGINES

Although optimizing your website for search engine is challenging, it is crucial to focus on it. Make sure that you follow Google’s guidelines to make your website search-friendly.

Some of the things you have to focus on when making your website search-engine-friendly:

  • On-page SEO
  • Internal links
  • External links
  • Local SEO
  • Speed of your website
  • Voice search
  • Mobile devices- friendly
  • Work on backlinks
  • Create excellent and valuable content
  • Aim for Google’s Featured Snippet by answering common questions
  • Use long-tail keywords
  • Web design

START A PODCAST

Staring your podcast can expose your brand to more visitors. When they hear your podcasts, chances are, they’ll visit your website and support your business.

You can also convert your podcast content into a text format and embed your podcast into it. This content will also drive traffic to your website.

GUEST POSTING

Guest posting is building backlinks for your website. You have to reach out to websites or blogs that are similar to your niche, but not a direct competitor.

If approved, you can create content for their website and add a link to some of your products. You can gain traffic from this process.

INCREASE YOUR WEBSITE TRAFFIC  BY USING SOCIAL MEDIA

Social media is one of the most popular tools used by marketing experts to generate traffic to their clients’ websites. However, social media is an exhausting platform, with hundreds of thousand businesses trying to promote their brand. It doesn’t mean you can’t use social media for your business. In fact, despite the competitive market, social media is still encouraged to be used.

There are various social media platforms you can try for your company.

  • TikTok
  • Pinterest
  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Snapchat

TRY EMAIL MARKETING

INCLUDE VIDEOS TO INCREASE YOUR WEBSITE TRAFFIC 

Video is the most popular media viewed by millions of people online. If you want to drive more traffic to your website and decrease your bounce rate, using videos will help.

You can create videos for your social media platforms and websites. Videos will make people stay on your site for a long time. The longer they stay, the more Google rewards you back. Your website will increase in ranking, which in return, can increase your website’s exposure and traffic.

HOST A GIVEAWAY

People like contests or giveaways and businesses can benefit from this. Use your social media and email platforms to announce your giveaways or contests. Allow social sharing of your giveaway content to increase your website’s traffic.

Your audiences will enjoy creative content like this, and they are more likely to refer your brand or become a loyal customer.

ENGAGE WITH YOUR AUDIENCE AND CUSTOMERS

Yet another way to increase your website traffic is .first, always engage with your audience by answering questions, replying to comments, and liking their comments. Engaging with your followers will make you seem more as a caring and thoughtful brand that people want to subscribe to and come back for more.

Second, after your customer purchased an item from you, this doesn’t mean the end of your relationship with them. You need to stay in contact with your customers by reminding them to subscribe to your email list. It will encourage repeat purchase and long-term traffic for your website. Also, your brand could even be recommended to others.

 SPY ON YOUR COMPETITORS

If you want to know how your competitors are getting ahead of the game, you can spy on them. There are tools created for digital marketers that will show what keywords and how your competitors are doing.

You can use their strategies to come up with your own and make other aspects of it better than theirs.

COLLABORATE WITH OTHER BRANDS

Some businesses don’t require payment, so if you want, you can work with them. They can mention your brand, and you can return the favor by doing the same.

Work with brands that are in line or closely related to your niche.

    I think this is a great article, thank you for the share, I particularly liked the host a giveaway idea. One way I increase traffic to a website is via natural SEO. It can take a while to achieve the results, but it is really worth it. I would advise that all content should be written to be grammatically correct, as all technical SEO specialists know, content is still king. It is also rewarding when people link back to your content, it is great to share quality information.

    Fantastic posts, really helpful as most people are looking to get more traffic. I have not really focused on social media as yet. I think I need to sign up for an account on Snapchat and Tiktok and learn how to market my online business on it. Really impressed by how this blog posts is setup, the table of contents and overall flow of it. Well done on that. Did you use a plugin to create the table of contents within the post? Would love to be able to add those to my own blog posts. Thanks again for the tips. Moz
