Without traffic, your website is an online paperweight

We often say that quality over quantity. When we are talking about the website traffic, this sentence does not make a sense anymore. Quality does not matter if no one sees or hear anything about your webpage. I have seen multiple good articles, and I have watched amazing YouTube videos when I have been doing my Internet research. Sometimes I have wondered why these people do not get more viewers to their pages, and simultaneously much worse article writers and YouTubers will get a lot more viewers to their pages. I think that they don’t know or don’t care how they could drive more traffic to their web pages. Probably they do not see the whole picture, and they have no idea how talented they are.

YouTube is a great example where talented small YouTubers will not get that popularity which they deserve. The reason for this is that they do not market their channel, they do not produce new content often enough, and they do not trust themselves. At the same time, some other YouTubers will come up with the same idea after they have copied it. Then they will produce an own video of the same content, and the only difference is that they will put some effort into work on how they will market the content. If you do not take the full potential out of your work, then someone else does it, and this is how things work in our world.

I think that the growing traffic in your webpage is a reward for hard work, and there are no shortcuts with this case. We will not get anything for free in this world, and the only way to get what we want is to work hard towards our goals. I have seen many people only publishing their articles, and then they wait that people just come and read their stories. I can say that things are not working that way. Everyone needs to get people around to succeed, and before that, it’s you who need to do the hard work. There is no-one who will share your works and ideas with the world before you have earned your status. At least not for free.

Without traffic, your website is nothing. It doesn't matter how attractive it is.

Without traffic, your website is like an exotic car that has no gas in the tank – it may be good to look at, but it isn’t going anywhere


How to drive quality traffic to your website?

There are hundreds of articles on the Internet which are telling you different ways to drive traffic to your webpage, but most of these methods are not very useful. The problem with most of the methods is that you need to do some favors to get traffic to your pages. One of the most popular ways to make page exchanges is social media, where you can ask people to visit your webpage, and for the return, you have to go visit their web pages. You can get some traffic if you use a lot of time for this method, but I do not think that is worth it. I think that the biggest problem is that these people are probably not interested in your content.

When I was researching my website traffic, I have noticed that 50% of the people from social media will never come to visit your web pages after I have visited their page. Then 25% of the people click my pages and close it after 2-4s. Is this quality traffic that I want to get my pages? Well, obviously it’s not, and for this kind of traffic, there is more harm than good when we are thinking about the website bounce rate. Why am I wasting my time if 75% of people do not even bother reading my articles for return after I have bees visited their page? The reason is the remaining 25% of people, who prove to be trustworthy by reading my article after I have read their articles. Most likely not many of them are interesting about our video game projects, but this is the first step to looking at trustworthy people in our community.

The idea behind this all is that my webpage will be working as a filter. I do not want to get that 2-4s traffic to our game websites, so it’s better than this traffic is coming to my site first. I believe that this method will help us to get quality traffic to our game site because most likely people who are not interested will not come to visit the game site. I think that the importance of this method will be smaller when we get things running, and some visibility our projects. However, when we create something new on the Internet, it’s necessary to get good rank in SEO as soon as possible.

Other ways to drive traffic to your page for free?

I’ve been trying to drive traffic to my website in many different ways, and one of the methods has been automatic website traffic pages. I don’t see that these automatic traffic exchange pages are an effective way to drive traffic to my page. Sure, I will get free traffic, but what is the point of traffic if no-one sees your content? Maybe this will work for some purposes when the only idea is to drive a massive amount of traffic to one site. Manual traffic exchange sites are a little better option because people need to click the pages manually, but I do not think these sites are worthy of my time. I also notice that some of the pages are full of malicious software so I would not recommend using these automatic or manual website traffic pages without the good anti-virus program.

There are hundreds of ways how you can drive traffic to your webpage, and so far this is one of the best articles that I’ve found so far. I wanted to take this article as an example because as usual when you are promoting someone else’s content you will be paid for it, or you will get something back for it. I can say that I will not get paid or I will not get any favors back to this promotion. I like the content of the article, and it’s useful to me, so I can not see any problem in sharing it. I think that it is the most important thing is to find the niche, no matter what you are writing. After you have found something useful, fun or fascinating to write, and you will notice that people are beginning to share your content without asking for anything back you are on the right track.

The biggest problem with the promoting your content, and getting more traffic to your page is the time what you need to sacrifice for this work. Producing new content should be only thing what we should do because its simply best way to get more traffic, but things are not that simple. If you’ve ever wondered why famous YouTubers and bloggers can produce so much new content so fast the simple reason is that they can focus 100% of the writing new content. They have not earned their position for free, and they have done this same job before what we are doing right now. Sometimes when I will see my friends sharing content, I will try to find out why this person is sharing this content. This way I have been able to find out the reasons why the people are sharing the content. Now I need to learn to produce similar content when I’m preparing to market our video games in the future. Thank you for reading this article, and feel free to push the share button if you liked my posts.


Mastering online marketing is not easy

I have always been bad at marketing and selling anything, and I have been envious of people who can make it look like so easy. However, things have changed since the Internet is giving us new kind of opportunities for online marketing. It has opened a whole new kind of possibility for people like me to do business in online.

The Internet is growing so fast that now days almost everyone is using the Internet to find information. Every day, people spend more time on the Internet, and they’re already changing how we live and work. I think that this is not a good change for us, but unfortunately, we can do not anything to stop this train. However, This will open us thousands and thousands different online marketing ideas and strategies. Twenty years ago, people already said that the Internet is here to stay, and it will revolutionize the way we do business. I believe that this change will only get stronger years to come, and big companies such as Amazon will keep growing because the e-commerce marketing is still in its growth stage. In this digital era, starting an online business is easier than ever, but also more competitive than ever.

The best advantage of online marketing is convenience.

“Big companies such as Amazon will keep growing because the e-commerce marketing is still in its growth stage.”

The first thing I need to understand that, I need to build own brand before I can begin marketing anything. A good example is this article, which you are reading right now. If you go to Google and write my article text there, you will get better search results for this subject. Can I compete with them with their rules? I can not. I need to play my own game. If I would play their game by their rules, I have already lost that game. The only way I can separate from the gray mass is that I will produce own content. While I’m writing down my thoughts to my content, it will make it unique. It still does not mean anything, but at least I know that no-one else can’t compete with my thoughts. The same principle works in marketing and advertising as well. I think that the most important thing is to be familiar with your product and be honest.

Karl Fazer Blue (Marianne) Peppermint Crisps in Milk Chocolate Bar

If you like peppermint you will love this peppermint crisps milk chocolate. I am a huge fan of peppermint and Marianne brand. I usually buy them as candy, but this chocolate is also one of my favorite chocolates. Made in Finland

Know your product before you write about it

And what would be a better example than chocolate what I’m eating at the moment? The product has made in my home country, so I know the background of it if I need that information when I’m doing the marketing. The main problem with this product is that it’s not my own product. If someone buys this chocolate bar from Amazon using my affiliate link I receive a small commission. Amazon pays 1 – 10% commission rewards depending on the products. For this product, I would get 4% commission reward, if someone buys it through my affiliate link. When the price of a product is 5$, then we can quickly count that one chocolate bar commission reward is 0,2$. If we imagine a situation where I got 10 000 visitors to my webpage, and one percent of them will buy this chocolate bar, how much I will earn? The answer is only 20$ even the total sum of the sales is 500$. This is the difference between your product and someone else’s product when you are doing online marketing.

However, we are on the right track. I think that the first mistake what people make in marketing is that they do not know what they are selling to the people. Only a few of us are so skilled at selling that they would be able to sell anything to anyone, without knowing anything about their product. Most of us do not have this skill, so we have to build our brand around the people trust. The best way to earn people’s trust is, to be honest with them. Before you can be completely honest with people, you have to learn everything about the products which you are trying to sell for them. I’m not good at marketing anything, but I can see how people like you and me can make this work by using this method. Nowadays the Internet offers new opportunities for people, which were not possible before.

Affiliate marketing is a good step to start the business

The Internet is full of the different ideas how you can make affiliate marketing and earn money. Starting affiliate marketing is free, but it needs a lot of work and patience to generate sales. However, it is good to remember that when you are doing affiliate marketing, you are doing work for someone else. But if you do not have own product to offer to the people, then this is a good step to start the online business. Affiliate marketing is an excellent option for me to practice and learn more about the secrets of the online marketing. My goal is to offer own video games in the future to the people, but first I should learn how to implement the online marketing.

DJI Phantom 4 PRO Professional Drone

By selling over 200 chocolate bars, I will earn the same commission reward than selling this drone above once. 

When you are doing affiliate marketing, you should pay attention to how much is your commission reward for different products. In a previous example, I imagine a situation where I got 10 000 visitors to my webpage, and one percent of them will buy this chocolate bar. It meant that 100 customers bought the product and my commission reward was 20$. What if only one person of these 10 000 visitors (0,01%) will buy this drone above through my affiliate link? The price of this product is $1,375,00, and Amazon offers me 3% commission reward for this drone. That means if I can sell even one drone, my commission reward will be 41,25$ which is half more than in the previous example. The Internet is full of the different affiliate programs, but not all of them are worth your time. After all, you are only an employee who does the selling, and the product owner will collect the biggest reward. Thank you for reading this article, and feel free to push the follow button on the right if you liked my posts.

Online marketing is a long-term investment

When I’m planning to write new articles, I know that I should always do the keyword research first, and identify the keyword that can bring me the most traffic. Then the first question will be that, how can I find the right content marketing keywords? I have not given these much thoughts before because I feel like I’m losing my mind and the whole idea when I am trying to build everything around the one keyword. I have previously written my articles first, and after that, I have done the keyword research. Now I decided to try something new I chose the keyword before I started to write my article, and let’s see how this will work.

Memories can change our way of seeing

Watching my kids playing on the playground with other kids reminds me of my own childhood and how carefree everything was back then. The other kids didn’t care how I dressed or looked, they didn’t care how to perform at school or how much money my parents had. However, they did care about how I felt or they always asked me to play with them. If something change in our neighborhood they noticed the change and they were talking about it. I had a happy childhood and I know I’m lucky to be able to say that. As we grow up, we slowly begin, to see the world’s harsh realities.
