It may sound silly, but the reason that most people fail when it comes to getting traffic to their websites is that they don't have the right attitude for the job. This is why most websites just sit there with no traffic to speak of, and therefore, they don't earn any worthwhile income for their owners. Why is this? Well, for some wierd reason, most people don't give the job of getting traffic to their website/s the importance that it deserves. So many times I've seen people build a site and then move on to building the next one and the next one, and so on. What's the point in doing that? All you need to do is to get into the habit of doing something EVERY day that will drive traffic to your website. I don't care if it's writing articles, link building, posting on forums, etc.
Just make sure that you set aside at least an hour every day, where you do nothing but work on driving traffic to your site. You'll be amazed at the massive difference it will make to your income as the work you do each day builds and builds to bring more and more visitors to your website. For example, here's just one simple idea you can use. We all know that the major 'Guru's' in most market sectors usually have a massive list of names that they can email on a regular basis.
In addition, we know that their websites can generate huge amounts of very targetted traffic. So how would it be if you could grab a share of their traffic at no cost to yourself? If you've purchase a product online over the last few month's that is to do with your particular niche market and you've been very happy with the quality of the product, here's how you can benefit even more from your purchase. How about writing a highly complimentary testimonial about the product and email it to the product supplier? If you take your time over it and make it a really strong and powerful testimonial, there is a good chance that the owner will include it on his/her website, with your website URL at the end of the piece. Even if he doesn't put it on his site he may well include it in his autoresponder series of emails to his list or in his newsletter or ezine. Your testimonial (along with the URL for your site) then has the chance of being viewed by thousands of visitors, some of whom will check out your site from the URL in your testimonial.
Getting into the habit of writing a testimonial for every product that you buy online (as long as you are genuinly impressed with the product and it is relevant to your niche), can allow you to generate a very useful increase of traffic to your own website. It's the cumulative effect of doing something every day to drive traffic to your website that will set you apart from the crowd. I promise you that if you set aside just one hour each day to do this, it will have a huge impact on your earnings this year. Getting traffic to your website truly can be very easy! So make the commitment right now to set aside that hour each day to build your traffic and your business.
