Whether you recently launched a new website or whether you have had a website for years, it is always a good idea to relook the ways that you drive traffic to the site. Here are a few ideas from the digital marketing experts at WSI OMS:
- AdvertiseThis may seem like a no-brainer, but many business owners want to avoid paying for advertising – even if it can make a direct difference to their bottom line. Paid search advertising, banner advertising and paid social media marketing are all great ways to get your brand in front of potential clients. Be sure to use keywords that have commercial intent so that your website visitors can easily convert to paying clients.
- Get Social
Creating content is great, but it’s of little use if it isn’t being shared and read. Be sure to share your content on social media to drive more traffic to your website. Twitter can be used for short, snappy tweets whereas your product photos, promotions or other appealing visuals can go onto Instagram. Update your social media profiles regularly to continue to drive traffic to your website.
What works for one business owner may not work for you. Mix it up by experimenting with different types of content, different lengths of content and different times of posting. Check out what your competitors are doing and learn from their successes and mistakes.
- Target Long-Tail Keywords
