Website Traffic for a Home Business

Sep 12th 2010 at 1:09 PM

Having more website traffic is something that all business owners want and strive for. The main advantage for a home business owner to have more website traffic is sales. The more visitors you have, of course the more you have the opportunity to See… You also increase the amount of leads that you get. Most home businesses work off leads for more of sales. Here you will find 3 of the best ways that you can get more website traffic, and keep those sales and leads coming in.

1. Trade Links
Trading links with other websites that are relevant to yours will definitely help increase your website traffic. Try not to ask for link trades from those that are in direct competition, because often you will find that your competition will more than likely not be willing to trade links with you. For example, if your home business is a travel business, you could find a website that sells vacation style clothing or swimsuits. Use your imagination to come up with things that are relevant to your home business but not in direct competition with it for link exchanges.

2. Start a Blog
Having a blog about your home business website is a really great way to get more website traffic. The way blogs have become so popular on the Internet; you will find that many people will search only for blogs when they are looking for an opinion on something.
Promoting your home business website on your blog, will send more visitors to your website, which can result in more leads as well as sales. You can also advise your blog readers on how to get more information from you about your home business on your blog. Perhaps have them leave a comment, or offer them a newsletter for more info.

3. Post In Forums
Locating a forum that is relevant to your home business is an excellent way to get more website traffic. The key to this is to have your website link in your signature, and answer posts with confidence in knowing your products.
Using a travel related home business as an example again. You would find a forum that is relevant to vacationing. Register there to become a member (most of the time this is free). Place your website URL in your signature that the forum allows you to have. Then just start replying to posts about vacations. Most forums do not allow ads or self-promotion. However, people are curious by nature, and will click on your website link to get more information. This really works.

Website traffic is not something that just comes to you when you have a website. The old saying “Build it and they will come” does not apply. You have to promote your home business to get more website traffic. Using the techniques above will get you results that you can see and use. They are not all that time consuming, you just have to be consistent with them and you will see that they will pay off.
Remember: You CAN Do this!
Sincerely,
Carole Gardner 828-582-1965
