Here are 5 top tips on getting traffic to your local website.
Writing and publishing what you want your visitors to read or see. Excellent posts, content, articles and anything else that will make your visitors want to come back time after time. This is what Google and your online visitors want. Why do anything else?
Useful relevant links: The top search engine is of course Google and it is now doing it’s best to filter out websites that have links that are not relevant to your own site. So, this means linking only to sites that are relevant to your niche. There are exceptions but if your site is new I’d stick to this linking method.
Social Media Sites: What does this mean for a local business…it means plenty. Facebook and Twitter are 2 of the biggest social media sites online today. It is essential that you build a facebook fan page. You could include links back to your website, signup page or even find products you are offering.
Continuous updates and content: Having a static site worked very well in the past however, it is difficult to add or edit content on a daily or even weekly basis. It is now best to have a content management website via wordpress, joomala, drupal and a slew of other software that your web designer should know. Google loves new content and eats it up like a kid eating candy.
Email marketing: When a potential visitors finds your site you must find a way to get his email information. The best way is to add a newsletter page with an option to join it or give a freebie ebook, coupon or some incentive to get this person to enter his name, and email. Once you have that you can now converse and offer other products. Maybe you just want a way to converse with your potential customer? You can now email your potential client or customer and point them to your services or products.
