5 Ways to Drive Traffic to Your Website

We all want more traffic. Especially if you’re an online business. There are plenty of ways to encourage people to come to your website. How many are you doing?

1. Get an email with your domain.

Websites cost money. They cost money to register, they cost money to build, and, sometimes they cost money to maintain. On GoDaddy, you get an email address when you register your domain. So, use it. When you send an email from yourname@yourdomain, your getting your web address out there with every email.

2. Encourage your friends to like and share.

When people like and share your website and content on social media, it becomes more visible on those social sites. And, the more fans you have on your page, the more people will see your content. Think about asking your friends to like and share before you start paying Facebook to boost your post.

3. Pay Facebook to boost your post.

Consider it part of your marketing budget. It may not work 100%, but it will get your content out there. Also, it allows you to pick the audience you want to see your content. Don’t disregard it as a money grab.

4. Email signature

Just like putting your domain name in your email address, you can also put it in your email signature. This helps your exposure, making sure people see your website address twice every email. They just might click through.

5. Tell the social media world where you work.

On your personal Facebook page, tell everyone where you work. There is a spot on Facebook where you can put your Education and Work. You can also put a domain name in your Twitter description. Make sure you have a LinkedIn company profile page that people can click on. Better yet, share your content on LinkedIn just like you would on other social sites. It might not seem like it encourages that behavior, but it’s actually a good place for driving traffic.
