If you run a business with a website, then you understand how insanely important it is to get people to go to your site. Traffic on your site is important because, if the people are not there, there will be no sales.
Of course, you can theoretically have a ton of traffic and still no sales. Getting them is no guarantee they will buy something. But if there isn’t anyone going to your site, they for sure will not be buying anything.
How do you actually get people to go to your website though? These tips can help.
Use Facebook Wisely
You can have a business page and post all day long, but you can’t be sure anyone is seeing them. The way to fix this is to join Facebook groups in your niche. Some may be promotion only groups and those are fine, but make sure you mix some other types of groups in as well.
In any of them, post daily, but be certain they are valuable, useable, relevant posts. Do not exceed 5 posts per day, and do not make them all obviously promotional.
Pinterest Can Stir Interest
This can be used in a way similar to Facebook. Set up a business account and join group boards. You can pin to group boards even if the others in the group are not following you. Be certain the board you join, pinners you follow, and pins you pin are relevant to your business and high quality.
Be Active on Blogs
Read blogs, and make knowledgeable comments that add value to the post. For example, if there are three points, you can comment how great the points are and then suggest a 4th point that could be added, if you know of one.
The goal is to build relationships with other bloggers, while establishing yourself as an expert in the niche and exposing yourself and your page to others who may be interested.
Do Not Be Obvious
Simple posting, commenting, or pinning for the sake of being seen is not going to help you. It is painfully obvious when there are multiple frivolous posts daily. You want people to actually be interested and want to visit your page. This takes effort and thought, and in reality, a true relationship with others in your groups.
Relationships and trust are not built on shallow comments. They are built on response, and value added posted. They are built on legitimate, sincere interaction.
