3 Simple Ways To Increase Website Traffic

Who else wants more traffic to their website?

No matter what type of site you operate, it seems everyone is always looking for clever ways to increase website traffic.

I guess the better question would be, “Is there such a thing as too much website traffic?”

While you can purchase traffic, I’m of the old-school thought that if we put out consistent great content, people will take notice.

Yes and no.

While you can get plenty of readers without spending money on ads, etc., it does take time. In my opinion though, it’s well worth it because the people that land on your site actually come because they want to and more than likely, you are offering content they are looking for.

Here’s a few sure-fire ways to increase your blog traffic:

  • Update your blog regularly with fresh content. This seems like a no-brainer, but the key word here is “regularly.” You must be consistent. If folks drop by too many times, and there’s nothing new to see, they won’t be back!
  • Visit other blogs. This may sound like a strange one, but making yourself a regular on blogs that are in complimentary niches, increases the likelihood that you will lead folks back to your playground. I’m talking about blog commenting here. (bonus tip: leaving comments like, “Great post, thanks for sharing” don’t cut it — add to the conversation with some real value!)
  • Market, market, and then market some more! Driving traffic to your website takes a plan. You have to make sure your audience knows where to find you. Do that with social media, ezines, articles, guest blogging, networking, etc. You get the picture. Use all marketing tools at your disposal! Here’s the deal. Nobody’s going to toot your horn for you. YOU are responsible for letting folks know you’ve got something exciting for them to see!


Everybody wants traffic to their site. The problem is, many aren’t willing to do the work that’s required. Buckle down, find different ways that work for you, and get it done!

Happy driving!

7 Powerful Ways To Increase Twitter Engagement

Twitter. Still the darling of the social media sites, in my opinion.

It’s one of the easiest and best ways to have conversations with your ideal audience.

However, engagement is the key to your success and many people don’t quite understand how to get and keep it going.

Here’s 7 Powerful Ways to Increase Your Twitter Engagement:

  • Don’t talk so much! While this may seem counter-intuitive, it’s actually not. What I mean is, leave some room in your tweet for others to comment. (especially the retweeters!) Try it. Make those tweets LESS than 140 characters!
  • Weekends ROCK! While many business tweeters are there Monday through Friday, many MORE folks are tweeting up a storm on the weekends. Saturday and Sunday can both be REALLY dynamite days!
  • People like to watch! It’s not what you think. I’m talking about images and videos. People are visual. Even on Twitter. Want to get people talking? Pictures speak 1000 words. Or so we’re told icon smile 7 Powerful Ways To Increase Twitter Engagement
  • Ask! Don’t be shy about starting a conversation. Want folk to join in or RT? Simply ask. Say, “Can we discuss?” or “Please RT” or something similar. Just ask.
  • Use Hashtags. This is the norm on Twitter, not the exception. Hashtags group people together who are talking about the same topic. Use them.
  • Link! Don’t forget your link. People are looking for your valuable content. Tell them where to go get it!
  • Always have a Call-to-Action. This is so important. Whatever it is you want people to do, tell them. Ask them. Suggest to them. Say, “click here” or “snag this” or “let’s chat.” You get the picture!

OK, so now you know WHAT to do, the DOING IT is up to you!

Happy Tweeting!


The Secret To Becoming An Excellent Blogger (In Just 30 Days)

How would you like to join the ranks of the blogging elite?

You can and here’s how! Today starts the Ultimate Blog Challenge for the month of October. It’s a simple task. Write a blog post every day during this month. Yes, every. single. day.

I know. For new bloggers, the task seems rather daunting. But what if I told you, the sheer accountability of the challenge will force you to focus and in the end become a noteworthy blogger?

Need more convincing?

What if I told you the creators of the challenge are personal friends of mine and will bring you blog tips and ideas, sprinkled with motivation and encouragement all along the way? Would that make it a little more enticing?

What if I told you that you would immediately be connected to a blogging community like no other? A community that will support your efforts all along the way?

My experience . . .

At this point in my blogging career and in the life of my coaching business, I don’t necessarily have to blog every single day to have my readers show up. However, I like to give them current up-to-date information that will help push their online businesses further and further up the ladder of success and I like to do it on a really consistent basis.

By inserting that magic called “accountability” into my blogging schedule, it’s amazing how I just “get it done!” There is something about letting the world know you intend to do something that actually makes you get it done. There’s that say-what-you’re-going-to-do-and-do-what-you’re-saying-you’ll-do thing going on.
