Are you still stuck on an old idea that you can only get visitors to your website by spending a significant chunk of your financial investment on a Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign?
If you are, then this is the best time to expand your online marketing reality. Generating free traffic for a website is not that challenging nowadays.
As more consumers are joining the social media networking, the marketing buzz created by popular social media sites can reach millions of potential visitors across the globe.
Here are some ideas on how to generate traffic using YouTube to start you off on the right track:
1. Create a short video that describes the product, service, or brand that you are promoting.
2. Create a tutorial video that highlights a product or service in your website.
3. Be the first to upload a potential viral video that can generate thousands of views within a short period. It can be a super funny video, a new movie trailer, or the latest celebrity spoofs.
Take the time to setup correctly the details of your video so that the search engines and your potential viewers can find it easily.
The title of your video is a decisive factor so make sure that the exact keyword that you are targeting can be found in the title.
In the Description field, the first line should contain your website URL. You should make it easy for your viewers to click on this link by putting it at the beginning.
The tags of your video should also have the list of keywords that you wish to rank for.
Remember that a video thumbnail is the first image that is displayed in the video list. It has the power to attract a potential viewer to click on your video. It is a good strategy to select a video thumbnail that has a strong appeal to your target audience.
As you upload more videos in YouTube which link back to your website, you will see a significant increase in your traffic as time goes on. The people who read your email newsletter and go to your website represent the traffic that will have the highest percentage of conversion into sales.
Your list will be the most important part of your business and over time you will come to understand that the list is everything for online sales.
Getting quality names for your newsletter is the ultimate goal because it will result in expanding your customer base and creating a successful online business.
