Today’s post is part 2 of my blog series on how to increase your blog traffic fast. I told you about how my traffic dropped crazy fast in the first post, along with 3 tips on how I revive my blog traffic quickly. Here are 3 more of the fast acting traffic tips I used to get my traffic back in 2 weeks.
1. Participate in a Fire Sale, Teleseminar or Niche Appropriate Fund Raiser
All of these will send traffic to your blog as well as add to your email list. I recently participated in a Fire Sale hosted by Kelly McCausey for a friend who needed help raising money to be able to move from her “sick” apartment to a healthy home. This has resulted in 320 new visits to my blog, 198 new Happypreneur members added to my sales funnel, my list and hopefully blog readership. I believe this number will grow over the weeks as many more participated that have not collected their merchandise yet.
2. Host a free webinar
Hosting a webinar is not nearly as scary as it sounds. There are lots of services out there that make it pretty simple. The one I am currently using is Meeting Burner. It’s pretty straight forward and inexpensive. However, I recommend no matter what service you use, that you really practice with it before inviting your list to a webinar, just to work the kinks out.
Offering a free webinar is a great way to create interest in your blog. This works in a couple of ways. First, you can collect names and email addresses to grow your list at the same time you drive traffic to your blog, buy putting up an opt in page on your blog for your guests to register to attend the webinar.
You can also post the link to join the webinar on your site and drive traffic there in order to access the webinar. If you record the webinar you can post it on YouTube, embed it on you blog and post the link to it on social media, sending even more traffic your way.
3. Facebook Event
Creating a Facebook event can really drive traffic to your blog in a big way! I held a virtual mortgage burning party and invited my Facebook friends by creating an event, then promoted the event by posting about it often and then using the “promote this post” feature on Facebook. It cost me $7.00 to promote my post for 3 days. I sent people back to my blog to register for the party. This stirred up a good bit of traffic. You could do this with a podcast, webinar, training class, teleseminar or Google Hangout.
As you can see, there are a number of pretty simple things you can do to drive traffic to your blog quickly. It takes a little effort, but it can be done. Be sure to watch for the next post in this series.
If you have a good tip to drive traffic, we’d love it if you’d share with us.
