Using Video Marketing to Drive Website Traffic

If you’re looking to get your website seen, one of the best techniques you can use to drive traffic is video marketing.

It’s one of the most engaging, influential, and potentially profitable forms of marketing today.

There is no cap on the amount of videos you can do if you have the time and put in the effort.

This doesn’t mean post a bunch of videos just to be posting videos, but it does mean that if you are doing videos that are informative and value packed people will respond.

Video marketing has the ability to capture people’s attention and allows you the luxury to establish authority like no other form of marketing.

People get to actually see you in the flesh and hear you speak about your product or service.

This one traffic source has been the bread and butter for many successful online businesses today.

Benefits of Video Marketing

Video Marketing provides an number of benefits to improve your business or promote your products or services.

Some benefits include:

  • Allowing you to highlight your products and services in an informative and entertaining way to viewers.
  • Increase blog traffic by driving YouTube video traffic to your blog.
  • Visitors are more likely to watch a 2-5 minute video then read an entire blog post.
  • Video allows you more flexibility in conveying your message compared to writing a blog post.
  • Videos allow you the opportunity to create fresh content more rapidly.
  • Videos rank high in the search engines.
  • Videos add diversity and a breath of fresh air to your content.
  • The amount of traffic can be endless and best of all once the video is done it does the work for you over and over again.

When it comes to video marketing you must take action.

It may be intimidating at first to get up and create your videos, but with practice you become better and more comfortable.

The main thing is just doing them.

A lot of times people let many other factors deter them from doing video marketing and never gain the courage to do it at all.

They come up with excuses of why they can’t post a video like “my hair isn’t right, I don’t know what to say, people aren’t going to like them, I’m not good enough.”

You must not let anything stop you from doing your videos.

Video marketing can be an important asset to your online business.

Do what you need to do to get over any fears you may have and you will quickly learn the benefits of remaining consistent with your efforts when you see the traffic it can bring over time.

I’ve done videos months ago that still bring in traffic daily to my blog.

If you don’t want to submit your videos to multiple sites just start with the biggest, YouTube.

YouTube gets an enormous amount of visitors each day.

You should find your niche and redirect some of that traffic to your blog or website through video marketing.

Facebook is also an awesome resource to use because videos can quickly go viral with the help of your Facebook friends.

Your videos can easily get shared and you can also post your videos to different groups associated with your niche.

Video marketing should definitely be added to your repertoire if you want to improve success in your business.

Your videos don’t have to be extravagant, but make sure they are genuine and informative.

If done correctly video marketing can be the only source you need to get the word out about your business.

Search Engine

Search Engine Traffic Tips

I’ve been away from my blog for a little over a week now.

It’s been tough for me to get blogging done with internet connection issues, family issues, and other obligations in my life.

My mind has really been going thinking about not being able to post and do the things I enjoy most when it comes to blogging and growing my blog business.

The one thing I’ve learned through all this is that the work that I’ve put in up to this point is paying off.

Thinking that not being able to blog has hurt me I have come to realize that it hasn’t been that bad.

I’ve continued to get a steady flow of traffic to my website through the search engine and also through other traffic resources I’ve been working on.

Finally being able to get back to blogging I feel energized, refreshed, and motivated to get back to business.

Today I wanted to discuss why it’s important to focus on getting your website or articles ranked in the search engine for traffic and some things you can do to improve your search engine rankings.

Why is Search Engine Optimization Important?

Search engine optimization is important to your website because it allows you the ability to gain visitors organically.

The people that come to your website through the search engine are usually targeted and looking for what you have to offer.

This is huge when it comes to gaining subscribers and making sales – big or small.

Good SEO practices improve the user experience, as well as the flow of your website.

Using good practices allow you to rank much higher in the search engines improving your credibility and authority in your niche.

This goes a long way when it comes to separating yourself from the competition.

If you and another website are offering the same products and services, the website that is optimized the best is more likely to have more customers than the other.

This can also lead to more sales if your copy and funnel is set up correctly.

3 Tips to Gain Success With Search Engine Optimization

If you want success with search engine optimization you will want to focus on a few strategies that will allow you the best results to improve your business.

Here are three tips to focus on:

1) Monitor your competitors

Focusing on what other successful people are doing in your niche is vital.

If competitors are making changes to their websites they have probably discovered a new strategy to improve in the search engine.

Make sure you are keeping up with the latest trends and strategies in your market.

That doesn’t mean jump on every new thing that is going on, but it does mean be aware of changes and do the proper research needed to figure out if they will be beneficial to you or not.

Never get comfortable in your business.

If you’ve been doing things that have been working by all means stick to that, but always be on the lookout for ways to improve and take your business to new levels.

2) Study your traffic logs

Studying your traffic is important.

You should always know where your traffic is coming from and how much you are getting.

If it’s a particular keyword then make more articles surrounding that keyword and leverage it.

Continue looking for keywords that don’t have much competition, but have a decent amount of searches and figure out how to get ranked for those keywords.

If you can rank high in the search engine for low competition keywords with reasonable traffic you can get visitors flowing to your website like clockwork.

You can locate your logs through your web hosting service or use tools like Google Analytics to give you an idea of the kind of traffic you’re getting daily.

3) Try to inspire sales

If you’ve reached a point where traffic is flowing and you feel comfortable with your SEO efforts you want to figure out a way to convert those visitors into sales.

With the right tools and copy in place you can create an income for yourself.

The main thing you want to be doing is capturing your visitors and sending them through a sales funnel.

You can do this through an autoresponder that has an email newsletter series.

Give your subscribers an ebook, video series, or a list of tools that can help them improve their business or solve a problem.

Don’t allow your SEO efforts to go to waste.

Turn your traffic into sales.

When it comes to running a successful business this should be your end result.

Keep these points in mind and you can have success in your business in no time.

Start using these strategies immediately in your business.

Your list building efforts should be started on day one.

Once that traffic starts flowing free or paid you can already have your funnel set to turn those leads into sales.

Best Wishes!

Free Marketing Methods

Free Marketing Methods to Generate Targeted Traffic

Free Marketing MethodsWhen it comes to having a blog or website generating traffic is vital.

With no traffic you have nobody reading your work and no opportunity to make sales.

This is a big problem if you’re looking to have a business that creates freedom for your life.

You need traffic if you want to succeed online, but with that traffic comes patience if you’re in a position like I was when I first started online.

I had no extra money to use for paid traffic strategies.

This left me in a bind, but I didn’t give up.

I figured out alternate ways to get traffic, which lead me down a new path of learning free marketing strategies to generate free targeted traffic to my blog and squeeze pages.

While free methods take more time to build your business as opposed to paid methods, they work extremely well once the ground work is laid and you begin to get a constant flow of traffic.

The past week has been hectic for me and I hadn’t had much time to do a blog post.

With the free marketing methods I’ve used to build my business the flow of traffic to my blog has stayed consistent because of the previous work I’ve put into my blog.

Traffic flows to my website whether I do work or not because of the groundwork I’ve laid with free marketing methods.

Eventually you will get to a point where you are getting sales consistently and doing it on autopilot.

It all starts with a foundation.

If you have the time free marketing methods can outperform paid advertising methods in terms of generating traffic.

I know this from experience.

There are all kinds of free marketing methods that you can use to take your business to the next level.

Look at all the different options that you have at your disposal.

It’s phenomenal!

Free Marketing MethodsYou have article marketing, video marketing, forum marketing, blogging. search engine marketing, blog commenting, email marketing, affiliate programs, and many more.

These are some of the free methods I use and they have worked wonders for my business.

By taking the time to combine all of the free strategies you can create a ton of traffic daily for your business.

When you get to a point where you are making sales you can use that money to put back into your business to generate customers through paid traffic methods.

Just think of the traffic you can get using both free and paid strategies.

With that being said you have to start somewhere.

You must have a plan and work that plan.

Not everything has to be done quickly, if you build a foundation first you have something to fall back on if things don’t go according to plan.

With free marketing methods you learn more about yourself and how to run your business effectively from the ground up.

You have that foundation built.

If you make mistakes from using paid traffic methods and lose the money you have in your budget you still know how to get traffic to your site free.

Your business doesn’t have to completely suffer until you get the money to generate more traffic to make the necessary tweaks to generate sales.

This is why free marketing methods should be a part of your marketing strategy in the beginning.

My 3 Biggest Free Marketing Methods That Generate Consistent Traffic

1. Youtube VideosFree Marketing Methods

YouTube has been one of my best sources of traffic.

If you stay consistent with posting videos and learning how to search engine optimize your videos in YouTube you can generate lots of traffic in a short period of time.

YouTube is one of the largest visited sites on the internet.

What a wonderful source to get traffic back to your website by doing videos that people find informative and helpful.

You can link your videos back to your website or post and get people to check out your site to see what you have going on.

I’ve generated thousands of views just off one YouTube video before.

Your videos don’t have to be extra long.

I usually do videos anywhere in between 2-5 minutes.

Just make sure you are being yourself in the videos and people will resonate with them.

As time goes on you can learn how to edit and add things to your videos to make them look much better.

Just don’t be afraid to post.

Free Marketing Methods2. Blog Commenting

Blog Commenting has been a fulfilling traffic generating method to use.

Since I’ve started going to other blogs in the community it has increased my traffic, improved my comments, and has grown my list in a fairly quick time period.

Blog commenting takes a lot of time going to other people’s blog, reading their work, and making quality blog comments.

Two things I’ve learned is that you actually learn much better that way to improve your blog.

And you actually create genuine relationships and friendships with other people in your niche that can assist you with leveraging your business if you are sharing each other’s work.

You should take a block of time out of your day to frequent some of the most active bloggers in your niche space and begin building a relationship with them through blog commenting.

You will begin to see a spike in your traffic and interaction in no time.

Free Marketing Methods3. Search Engine Optimization

SEO has been a journey, but slowly has been building loads of traffic to my blog daily.

It’s a strategy that I have used to build a strong foundation by getting my blog posts ranked in the search engines for views.

When people type in a specific keyword in a search engine they get to my website because my articles where one of the one’s that popped up in their search.

This is nothing, but free targeted traffic!

It has took much time to get my articles ranked in the search engines, but has been well worth it because once the work is done it’s done.

I am constantly looking for better and more effective ways to improve my SEO efforts and it has been a rewarding task seeing the many people that frequent my blog due to the SEO techniques I’ve learned to apply in my business.

If you’re looking to take your business to new heights you should be learning and applying free marketing methods into your business as often as possible.

By using free methods you give yourself the ability to get a constant flow of traffic without having to pay.

With paid traffic you get a flow of traffic only for the amount of traffic you can pay for.

With free marketing methods you can get a consistent flow of traffic for a longer period of time.

In my opinion you should be learning how to apply free marketing methods to your business before moving to paid methods.

They’ve done great things for my business and I’m sure it can for yours as well.

Best Wishes!
