Ok, so you may have heard about SEO and being at the top of Google being the best way to get more people to come to your wonderful site. But there are many many other ways and here are just 20 for those of you that want to have a go at doing it yourself. For those of you with better things to do, like running your company, please give us a call on 0845 0573420.
Start writing great articles about your niche area and post them on your corporate blog (if you have one) – there’s a good chance other people will link to you. This will also begin to position you as a ‘champion’ in your business niche. If you are not comfortable doing this then maybe you could hire a PR or copyright company.
Visit the forums that are most relevant to your area and again post relevant information and get involved with discussions.
3. Be useful
Leave useful comments on other people’s blogs and link back to your site.
4. Review a product or company
This may not be relevant in your sector, but if you can it is well worth your time review a product or company. This again will position you as a voice of authority.
5. Online PR
Similar to point 1, but this time submit the articles to online article directories. Be careful to choose the best and most reputable ones such as PRWeb
You could also use PayPerClick Traffic such as Adwords on Google. These are the adverts that appear on the right hand side of Google searches. You will be charged per click and you can monitor the results if your site is set up to do so.
7. Build a mailing list
You should add a mailing list subscribe form in a high profile spot on your site and make sure the readers have a reason to sign up for news about your company.
8. Be relevant
Make sure you optimize the titles of your pages for keywords people will search for
9. Everyone likes free stuff
You could possibly create a freebie product to give away (ebook, software, whitepaper etc.). This helps build your database of potential clients.
10. Build a network
Exchange quality links with a few related sites in your niche, if they are willing to do so.
There are many many more. If you are serious about your product and service and want to drive more traffic to your site then please give us a call on 0845 0573420, we look forward to speaking with you.
