If you pill that hey whoa God hey guys, just because you build a website, doesn’t mean anybody’s. Gon na see it even if you’re good at writing. Content it doesn’t mean anybody’s. Gon na see it you got to drive traffic.
So how do you get traffic to your website? Aside from the traditional SEO ways, there are five ways that I want to show you today on how to drive free traffic to your website. So without further ado, let’s, roll into it, okay.
So I’m back. What’s up guys? I’m Adriene Boyzone! Thank you for tuning in to another Adriene, graphics and marketing video. I always love spending this time with you guys to talk to you guys about building your websites, building your business and building your future.
Okay today is very special because I’m, going to show you five ways to generate free traffic. Now keep in mind, you may be using some of these one or more of these, but these five ways are very, very important to help you drive traffic to your website and if you build your website, the right way generate the right traffic with the right messaging.
That’s, actually going to convert and to income and to revenue into business and into a future that you can actually see. So let’s, go ahead and jump right into it. All right number one is podcasting man.
It seems like everybody in their mom their cousin, their aunt their uncle their friends, their colleagues. Their dog has a podcast these days. It’s, crazy. How many podcasts are online, but you may not know that 95 % of podcasts at least the last statistic that I checked are listened to on iTunes.
So what I want you to do is I want you to get on to a podcast okay. That is my first homework assignment for you today, and this video is to get yourself on a podcast. Now you may be asking yourself how the heck do I get on to a podcast? Well, a podcast is going to help.
You generate a ton of traffic back to you, especially if it’s, a bigger podcast, even on the smaller podcast. Even if one to five ten people see you that is free traffic, just from spending some of your time.
Now it’s, not going to cost you money financially, and if a podcaster tries to charge you fine. Actually I would just wan na Lee recommend going a different direction unless it’s really really cheap and they have a big following.
I would recommend you just getting on free podcasts. The goal is is to have something to offer a strong. Why a strong message, and so what you can do is if they have a strong. Why a strong message, then you can go and approach these people on Facebook, on Instagram, on Twitter, on their websites for their podcast, and you can write comments on the podcast and say that you want to be featured.
But don’t make this all about you, as you know, and as I’ve talked about in many other videos. It’s all about delivering value upfront. I want you to go, listen to their podcasts. I want you to do this very authentically very organically, go to these podcasts and listen to their episodes.
Listen to the speakers see how you align with them, because I want to make sure that before you go on these podcasts that you’re, a good fit that you actually have the same core values the same interests, because the worst thing to do Is to be on a podcast, the 5 10 15 minutes into it and all of a sudden realize.
Oh, I’m, not on a show that really aligns with Who I am and have tension with the podcast host, or maybe somebody else that’s on the show and you don’t want to have that. You want to make your every opportunity you have to generate traffic yourself.
You want to make yourself look good and putting yourself in a tough position with a podcast that you shouldn’t be on, is not a good, not a good scenario. So I want you to get on the podcast and aligned with your vision and aligned with your purpose and aligned with your mission very important and then just send them a message on Facebook, Instagram Twitter.
Any of the platforms you can and don’t. Make this all about you! It’s, okay, to put a little gold nugget about why they should listen to you in terms of what you’re willing to offer them what you do but make it about them because they’re asking themselves.
Well, what’s in it? For me, what’s in it? For my audience? Okay, they’re, always asking what’s in it, for the audience so make sure that whatever it is, you have that you’re gonna offer them is valuable to them.
First, lead with the value upfront it’s. Always you want to lead with the with a napkin, not a bib. You’re, not trying to feast and off of these people, you’re, trying to deliver value to them. So if you can deliver content and information and knowledge and expertise that actually helps them and helps their audience, you’ll, be way more receptive to that person.
That person will be way more interested in and having on their show and make sure that your unique make sure that what you’re doing is different and special from everybody else, because you don’t want to sound the same and That’s.
All part of your brand. Your brand should be different from everybody, and anybody else is out there. Nobody else could be Adrienne, graphics and marketing right. Nobody else could make these funny faces and do these funny intros and who else could have hair like this.
I mean come on, so you want to make sure that your podcast episode is good, that you have a good spark with the person, and so leading with value is very, very important. That’s number one. Okay number two is zum-zum, is an awesome platform.
Tons and tons of people are using zoom people are going on zoom for conferences, for virtual summits, for master classes, for trainings. For group group coaching group consulting there’s, zoom being used every single day, especially since we can’t.
Do these one-on-one networking groups it’s, really important that you hop on the digital world and then you get zoom. If you don’t have an account, I would really recommend you go get it account. It’s really cheap and it will pay for itself.
If you use it. Often it’s very it’s, a no-brainer right just like a networking group, and I want to give a shout out to the happy neighborhood project because I recently was on one of their zoom calls where they had like 60.
70. 80 people on one zoom call those were all potential clients all potential business owners that I could build a relationship with. We were broken into separate rooms. I mean it was a blast there’s, so much fun that you can have on zoom calls.
So you should be using zoom and interviewing other people. You could start your own podcast, like I said there’s, tons of people doing it, so it’s, not a it’s a very crowded space, but if you’re doing it just to have it As a platform to be able to have build a relationship with somebody awesome, you can use that content record.
It put it up on the podcast. Put it up on different places, really great way to do it, but zoom is another one. It’s. Just a video version of doing that, so that content that you do on your zoom can also be used on a podcast episode.
So take the opportunity to jump on zoom calls conferences, networking groups there’s, tons of zooms look out for it. You’ll, see it on your Facebook. You ‘ Ll, see it on your social platforms.
You’ll, see people running ads. This is just a really good way to build your awareness, to build your reputation and get in front of more people, especially when we’re stuck behind our computers stuck in our houses and can’t, go meeting.
People out to meet people face to face out of, and networking groups, and things like that, so that’s, a really good way to do it. Okay, number three: this is the third way to generate free traffic, which you’re gonna need is blogging now I emphasize this, and I want to stress this to you, because blogging is a very good strategy, but I just got done with an Interview with an SEO expert that speaks at conferences all over the world on SEO.
If you’re, expecting an immediate return on investment, it’s, not gonna work out that great. You need to understand that it takes six to twelve months of blogging, consistently to see an ROI and just see your traffic go up.
It’s, just like with YouTube. Okay, it’s, really important that you spend the time building the foundation and that you write quality content. You’re, sharing your knowledge, your expertise, wherever you got it from it.
Doesn’t matter, but you’re, putting it into your own words, making it original and delivering it with your authenticity. With your approach with your personality and with your value, that is really really important.
Blog articles are a great way, and you know what another thing you can do is you can go on to Rev com? You can take your Xoom calls. You can take your podcast episodes and you can doubt you can have that transcribed.
You can clean it up and you can upload it as a blog article. You post a photo along with it. You post the video along with it, just makes your blog articles even better better by their benefit. You see, I can’t even talk, so you need to be able to go in and actually focus on, creating content for multi channels.
These are all channels that are gonna drive you free traffic, free traffic is gonna, create conversions. It’s. Gon na create interest because you’re gonna be attracting people that know you like you and trust you.
That is the secret you ‘ Ve heard me talk about this before. If you’ve watched my videos. If you haven’t, you need to be aware that people do business with those that they know they like and they trust.
So if you want to be known, you want to be liked and you want to be trusted. Then you got to be yourself. You’re gonna, be your goofy silly funny self. You got to put yourself out there. You got to be willing to take risks, be out of your comfort zone, and that is a really good way to build relationships with people and by sharing your knowledge of your passion.
You’re gonna create an interest, and that interest is gonna create a desire which, if you do it right, you’ll, get them to take action. You actually got to encourage them to take action. Like I’ve encouraged you to do some homework and start focusing on at least a few of these channels.
At least three. I want you to pick three of these. Then I’m gonna cover with you today. Okay, the next one, is social. Social is a really powerful platform. You can get on Instagram you can get on Facebook.
You can get on Twitter, you can get on tick-tock. I know if tick-tock is a raging, big booming social media platform right now, and if you can jump on early and build bandwidth and you create short little business tips or health tips or cooking tips or whatever your business is.
If you’re, a creator show designs that you’re doing in 60 seconds. You can post videos up to 60 seconds. It’s, a great platform to generate traffic. I have all of my traffic going from my tick-tock, which isn’t a ton, because I’m just starting out on it going directly to my YouTube channel that’s, a really big deal you want to funnel.
All of your traffic, usually to one place it could be all to your website. It could be all to your Facebook can be all to your landing page. Everything should be focused on delivering to one call-to-action until one offer a very, very key, very critical to business growth is being able to send them to one specific common thing that you’re doing over and over and over again, you’Re sending that traffic that you’re gonna get now over time, as you continue to blog as you continue to post on social, as you continue to share all of this content across all these different platforms.
You’re gonna steer, see your traffic start to incrementally jump and climb and climb to the point where now you have thousands of people visiting your page for a month that’s, the level that we’ve, finally, Reached it’s taken a long time to get there, but if you’re willing to put in the work you’re willing to put in the time you’re willing to put in the energy, you Can do all of these things with no money, no financial dollars out of your pocket? It’s completely free for any of these platforms, so this is something I’m doing a lot of I’m using my content.
That record on my podcast. Am I on my other channels that I’m using I’m repurposing it for other places, especially like YouTube, and that leads me to the last one. Youtube is an amazing platform to help build your brand to build authentically to capture an audience: okay, whether it’s, men or women, 18 to 24 enthusiasts and digital marketing enthusiasts and finance.
Whatever your passion is, there is a community of people on YouTube and it’s. Important, no matter what platform you’re on. If you’re on discord, which is a really great platform, I would encourage you to.
Is another social platform I would encourage you to get on whether it’s, discord or tik-tok or u2 or Facebook. Whatever the platform is you need to make sure that you are being engaged that you’re engaging on them? You can comment on other people’s comments.
You can like other people’s comments. You actually need to be offering value to other people and not just expecting to receive it’s all about giving. So you want to comment on other youtubers. You want to comment on other Facebook posts.
You want to comment on other tik-tok errs. You want to support you want to like you want to follow. You want to be giving back to the community, not just taking things. Ok, you don’t want to be a taker, you want to be a giver, and that is part of really building value with people.
People will see that if you’re a taker, they’re gonna see that you’re just in it for your own gain. You need to have a strong. Why and all that you do, and I have another video that you should watch – I’ll post a link, above of what is your, why your? Why, like mine, should be very strong.
I get up out of bed every day because my mission is to help restore at-risk youth. I restore broken families and help at-risk youth. People who don’t have somebody on their side. People who don’t have an advocate for them.
I am the advocate for you, I’m. The advocate for the creative I am the advocate for the designer I’m. The advocate for the entrepreneur I’m. The advocate for the person who didn’t finish high school. It’s very important that you take the time to understand what your.
Why is, and if you don’t have a why you, don’t, have a strong. Why you don’t have a strong passion. Then you need to take the time to learn that and that’s. Part of what I’m doing here, I just created a video series on how to create an online business and, like I talked about in the very first video I’m doing these every Wednesday.
Is you need to make sure that you have a strong? Why? What is your? Why? What is your purpose so that that can apply, and you can wrap that around all the content? That’s? Gon na create traffic that’s gonna go back to you.
That cannot only offer value to them, but can offer value to you. This should be a fair back and forth it’s, not all about giving and not receiving you will receive. If you give value to people, I promise you you will receive in return it’s, just the way things go.
Okay, so the YouTube channel is a really good one and I’ll start from the beginning in terms of the different channels. Just to rehash number one is podcast number two is zoom number three is blogs. Number four is social and number.
Five is YouTube: these are all free ways you can generate traffic, create a buzz, create awareness, create desire, create interest and create action, and that’s. Ultimately, what you want at the end of the day, but in order to create action, you have to create awareness and in order to create awareness, you have to create traffic in order to get traffic.
You have to post content. Okay, you have to get in content creation mode, whether that’s, you interviewing other people and creating your own platforms or you going on other people’s platforms and doing interviews that’s.
All content that can be used to help bring awareness to you to help bring traffic, so I hope this was very helpful for you guys today I’m happy it’s Monday. I’m gonna go, kill it for the rest of the week.
I hope you guys do too. I love you guys. Thank you so much for tuning in and as always keep looking up. You
