5 Little Known Ways To Double Your

by Monika Beck | Featured Contributor 

Do you dream of thousands of new visitors flooding your website?

Picture people from all over the world flock to your site hungry for more of what you have to say.

The massive traffic you drive to your site helps you monetize your site in ways you have never imagined.

Is it really possible?

What does it really take?

#1 – Are you willing to work harder than 99.9% of your competitors?

I know the answer is a resounding “Yes”.

But, are you really willing to work that hard?

For example, you have to be ready to create great content with great detail. I don’t mean a 500-word article.

I mean a 2000 to 4000 word article or blog post. Most people are not willing to work that hard.

Content that is several thousands of words long will take many hours to write. Ask successful bloggers, and they will tell you that it is not unusual for them to spend up to 40-hours writing a new blog post.

Are you willing to work that hard?

I can tell you with confidence that most people are not. But, if you are ready to make this kind of commitment to your website you will come out ahead of most.

#2 – Can you make the necessary connections?

Even with the latest social networks, apps, and tactics, there is no substitute for the human factor.

Develop a habit of networking with the right people. Now, I don’t mean the cheesy take my business card kind of way.

I mean the real human way.

You take a genuine interest in another person. You take the time to learn about their business.

Write about other businesses and influencers on your site. Ask influencers for quotes about your niche or content.

The key is to try be helpful before you ask for anything.

Again, if you are willing to do this you will be ahead of most people.

Some of the best ways to network is through Twitter, and attending industry events. I know with all the technology out there, face-to-face meetings are still very effective.

The larger network you build the greater reach will you develop, and it will result in more traffic.

#3 – Get your visitors involved.

Encourage interaction. Don’t just hope that they like what they see. You want to know what people think about your site. Find out if they like it or hate it. If they love what you do, keep doing what you are doing. If they hate, make adjustments.

Ask your visitors to provide you with feedback.

Ask them questions like:

  • What would you like to know about?
  • Is there something that you want to learn about that is not yet part of our website?
  • What do you like or dislike about our website?

Create more content based on the questions people ask. Once you create the content share it with the same people and ask them to share it with their networks.

Make it easy for people to comment on your site. Once people comment respond back to the person quickly, so she knows there is someone on the other end listening.

Stay connected.

#4 Promote your website beyond the obvious.

Everybody is using Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to promote their websites, but there is so much more out there for you.

Use some of the smaller web properties to promote your site such as:

  • Quora – There are questions about anything you can dream of on Quora. Becoming part of the conversation is a great way to drive people to your site. It also gives you an opportunity to learn about common questions.
  • BizSugar – If your audience is small business or entrepreneurs, BizSugar offers a great way to share your content.
  • Triberr – A great community of bloggers and entrepreneurs who want to help you promote your website.

#5 Don’t believe in shortcuts.

It takes time and hard work to drive substantial traffic to your website.

There are always new games to trick the search engines, but it almost always ends badly. Even if you manage to game the search engines now, it will come back to hurt you in the end.

Resist the temptation to waste your time on shortcuts.

There is simply no substitute for creating great quality work. It will pay off in the end.

In the comments section, let us know what is your preferred way to grow your website traffic.
