Everyone wants to increase their website traffic.
However, everyone wants a way to scale their efforts to get a quick win. Many of these people resort to risky “black hat” SEO practices.
But those strategies don't work anymore.
When it comes to increasing your traffic quickly, you’ll want to put a process into place.
Without a marketing process, you’ll just be throwing darts at the wall hoping one sticks.
The place you’ll want to begin is content marketing and social media marketing. These are the type of channels that can earn you organic traffic quickly without risking penalties from Google.
To further streamline your activity you should consider marketing process outsourcing. This means hiring a virtual assistant that can help you with time-consuming but simple tasks so that you can focus on the important stuff.
Here are some tips for growing your traffic quickly:
One of the best ways to increase traffic to your site while also contributing to your SEO is by guest posting on high-authority sites. To do this you’ll need to write a really well-thought-out, insightful, helpful article that demonstrates your expertise.
While you should do the writing yourself, a virtual assistant can easily help you compile a list of high-authority sites you should reach out to.
Once you have a list of sites to reach out to, you’ll need to come up with topics for the posts. While you may have an idea or two in your head, by doing a little keyword research you can find a whole list of ideas!
Bonus points if you research topics using Google’s Keyword Tool and choose terms that have high search volume. Doing so may help increase the visibility of your posts in search engines. If one of your guest posts earns the blog a large amount of traffic it is likely that you’ll be invited to guest post again
In addition to writing blog posts, you’ll want to promote them via social
media. When it comes to the number of times per day that you post to social sharing sites there is no right or wrong answer. Every community is different in terms of what they are receptive to.
In general, you’ll probably want to stick to updating your Facebook page no more than three times per day; however, on Twitter and other sites like Instagram and Pinterest you can and should post many times per day.
It can be overwhelming for one person to write really high-quality content and then spend a large portion of the day curating social media posts as well.
The good news is there is software like Buffer and Hootsuite that allow you to schedule posts in advance. In fact, you don’t even need to do this yourself. You can hire a virtual assistant who can craft social media updates for you and schedule them using the software.
Get started today by putting together a marketing process outsourcing plan that you can stick to – and that will lead you to your desired results. If you’re short on time then a marketing process outsourcing company may be a great fit.
