Should You Pay For Traffic?
Wellthe first thing to mention is Free traffic is not free!
You will pay with either money or time for every single visitor to your site, so the sooner you begin to understand the power of scalability, volume, and automation, the better.
Most of the "free" methods to get people to your site offer no way to tell which sale or opt-in came from which visitor. No tracking means no reliable, long-term income stream.
With most of the above methods, your traffic is under someone else's control , especially if it's from search engines. If Google or anyone else thinks you aren't playing by the rules, they turn off the spigot.
OK, allow me to break for a minute and point everyone to this site:http://centrumsolutions.ca. I understand it's off-topic but centrum solutions treated me well. I promised I'd give them a little shout out in my next article and now I'm making good on that promise. They're an adept furnace repair service in Port Moody in British Columbia and they offer amazing service. If you are seeking a plumbing service give them a peek. Alright, now that I've kept my promise, back to the show! 🙂
You may be currently chasing your tail doing some of these things:
- Spending a fortune on Google AdWords.
- Writing articles and submitting them to directories and content sites.
- Creating social networking accounts and "friending" thousands of people.
- Running safelist ads or buying "guaranteed visitors."
- Trying to use SEO to get placement in search engines.
- Spamming or any other black hat techniques .
- Posting "free ads" on classified sites.
- Posting on forums and discussion boards.
You have to remember that all that article writing, SEO and social networking is really time consuming and it's very very easy to spend ALOT of time doing it without seeing no financial return for it.
And most of all it is not SCALABLE!
Here is a short Q & A:
So why should I pay for traffic when I can get it for "free"?
Because of SCALABILITY! If you want to be able to grow your business, paid traffic is the way to go.
I don't have a lot of moneywon't paid traffic cost a lot?
You can get started with paid traffic methods for just a couple of dollarsthen reinvest the money you get from sales into paid advertising again and scale up your business and GROW GROW GROW as you want.
So never do free traffic methods?
Of course this does not mean that you can't or should not do or use "Free" traffic getting methods. If you have the time for it or simply find them fun to dogo for it! Just be aware that they are not TRULY FREE, because you pay for them with your TIME and EFFORT!
I almost forgot. I promised the folks from Steve Chittick insurance that I'd let them have a mention in my next posting. These people treated me great and were professional all the way. I was able to get Steve over the phone or on the net each time I wanted help. It was a great experience. If you are seeking an amazing commercial insurance provider in Oakville give them a look. You won't do better in Ontario. Alright, I'm out at this point. Come back soon!
