3 Unusual Traffic Sources You Probably Never Knew Existed
- General Forums
The first of todays traffic sources is forums. Another one of my favourite ones are commenting in forums. This is a great way to get the word out about your product or service. The only rule of thumb when it comes to using forums is by avoiding sharing when it is unsolicited for. Most forums would ask you to register your details before joining. One of the best things to do is to add your blog or website link when there is a space for it. The key is commenting on or answering questions in your area of expertise. Give freely and point them to a resource on your blog or site if you have one. Join the conversation and contribute to what everyone is saying in the forum about the particular subject. It drives traffic to your offer and helps you generate leads in the process. Find forums in your business industry and start relating and helping people.
- Question and Answer Sites
Quora is a question and answer site very similar to yahoo answers back in the day. It now sits as one of the only best question and answer sites available online today. Question and answer sites are quite simple to understand. The objective here is to answer questions you have answers to and be useful to someone else first. So the concept of using it to get traffic and generate leads is a very good idea. Just like forums you have the opportunity to leave your website link for other people to follow your link. I also found that they also rank in search engines
The Easiest and My Favorite Traffic Source
- Blog commenting
This is another good old trick. By finding blogs that are related to your niche or industry you can start leaving useful reasonable comments that contribute to the blog you are commenting on. The last thing you want is your comment to be blocked as spam. There is nothing worse than that when it comes to blog commenting. So make sure to leave comments that are not only useful but contributes to the owner of that blog. In return most blog would link back to your profile or brand.
