1. Enlist your Business on 'Google My Business'
Listing your business on Google My Business is the single most important thing that you can do to attract more clients.
Why is that?
Because, it will attract local clients, clients that are more likely to purchase your services. And it will build a good brand image. Will bring back reviews, which is important for building trust in the market.
And also search for other review platforms, like Yelp. It will help to build a good brand image. And in-turn will drive more traffic to your website.
2. On-Page SEO
After 'Google My Business', SEO will drive traffic from google searches. This only will cover more than 25-40% of your overall traffic. Read my blog Beginners Guide on SEO, to learn in detail.
3. Social Media Marketing
Social media is one of the most popular free marketing tools and plays a role in driving traffic to your website. Use Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn to promote blog posts and other useful pages on your website. This way you can turn your social media audience into website visitors, and draw traffic from their networks if you post shareable content.
You can leverage the power of social media in a big way. With social media as a marketing tool, sky is the limit. Use Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, LinkedIn, etc to promote your blog posts. This way you can turn your social media audience into visitors and can draw more traffic on your website.
4. Email Marketing
Sending out regular newsletters and promoting offers through email is a great way to stay in touch with your customers and can also help to get traffic to your website. Provide useful information and links to pages on your website where they can learn more, such as through blog posts and landing pages for particular offers. Just make sure that you don`t continually bombard your readers with emails or your customers will either disengage with, delete, or unsubscribe from your emails.
Also, put careful thought into your email subject lines. These heavily influence whether or not a user opens your email. If your emails never get opened, they can’t supply traffic to your site!
Ask your visitors to subscribe, to receive the new offers and content first. That way you will have a more loyal visitor and in the future, you can prompt any purchase that you might offer on your website.
Also, ask for suggestions. This way you will increase the engagement with your visitor.
5. Increase Your Online Presence
It’s free to be active in online groups and on websites that are relevant to your business and community—and it helps you to obtain more traffic. Comment on blogs and social media posts, answer questions people are posting and participate in conversations about your industry. The more you engage with your community, the more exposure and profile visits you get.
6. Build Backlinks
Backlinks are the links of your site on other websites. This will bring a more qualified audience onto your site. And also, Google renders it as a recommendation from other trusted websites. And in-turn improves your page ranking.
7. Guest Blog
Having an industry influencer publish a blog post on your site or having an interview with them into a blog post can help to drive traffic both through organic search but also via that influencer promoting the content to their audience. This can also help to add more variety to your content and show your visitors that you are active in your field.
And, you could also ask the influencer to mention your business in their own review. This method is free, but you still need the collaboration with the influencer to be an exchange with mutual benefit.
You can also be a guest blogger. Identify complementary businesses in your area whose audience is relevant to your business. See if you can contribute a post to their blog with a link back to your website. Make sure your content is relevant and useful to their audience so that it’s more of an even exchange.
