Free Or Paid Traffic?
Today while Oil Rig Hopping I stumbled upon a blog created by Steve Denness.
He is currently a student of Internet Marketing with Dean Holland.
A few of Steve’s Blog Posts are dedicated to generating traffic, he mentions some pretty unique ideas toward the subject.
He talks about traffic exchanges and how you can use them to generate traffic to your site.
There is a way of getting paid from doing it too here, BONUS .
It can apparently be time-consuming (Aren’t All Free Methods?) but Steve is getting results from it.
He also talks about posting free ads in one of his posts too.
I have tried this method when i first got online but in my innocence didn’t give it enough time.
Steve said with a bit of practice you can post about 2 ads in about 4 minutes.
It only takes Steve an hour a day to post all of his ads which is very cool.
I am going set an hour aside a day to use this method again.
Next blog i got to was another student of Dean holland’s by the name of Jerry Handy.
He has chosen to go down the paid traffic route.
He is using solo ads and getting some excellent results from this method.
Paid traffic is fast, easy and targeted, it can be quite risky too if you don’t know what you are doing.
You need to make sure that your funnel is fully optimized and converts well.
Jerry’s #1 tip is not to take food off the table to pay for traffic, meaning pay your bills and your groceries first.
Excellent advice if you ask me. Get some money aside first before you think about using this method.
I am sure having Dean Holland as a mentor is making sure Jerry’s funnel is set up correctly.
It is great to see other people starting to get results with their traffic techniques and it just goes to show that having a mentor like Alex Jeffreys or Dean Holland definitely speeds up the route to success. A mentor gives us a map and a compass to find a speedier path to our goals.
What traffic techniques do you think are best and why?
