Hi, This is the power of blogging/best strategies to get traffic 3 and the last post of this series. Without no much bla bla blas, let’s get start it.



Fast & Furious Strategies

 

We know that it all begins by focusing on the highest quality traffic possible. So, how can you flood your website with traffic that will convert?

Here are a few ways pro bloggers get it done:

Guest Blogging
This is where you agree to post useful, highly informative content on someone’s blog.  Why would you do this instead of posting it on your own?

Because by being a featured contributor on established blogs, you can not only piggyback off the authority and credibility of someone in your market, but you can siphon their traffic onto your blog for free!

The alternative is to approach leading blogs in your niche and ask if they offer paid advertisements or sponsorships, but in reality; this will never produce the results that guest blogging can.



Think about it: You are not only given the opportunity to transfer traffic from authority blogs onto your own, but by being featured on their website you are gaining traction in your market while establishing yourself as an authority in your niche!

 

Guest blogging also helps you expand your outreach via social media as quite often these posts will be shared through RSS feeds, twitter, Facebook and through newsletter updates.

There’s nothing quite like it. Guest blogging will catapult your efforts to generate premium traffic that will convert while also helping you develop powerful networking opportunities and partnerships in your industry.

So, you are like asking: “how do I find guest blogging opportunities?”

Easy.  Search Google!

Use search terms like:

keyword “submit a guest post”
keyword guest blogging”

keyword accepting guest posts”
keyword “guest post by”.

You’ll be able to find countless opportunities just be using search operators. Here are a few others:

Keyword + “guest blogging”
Keyword + “write for us”

You can also find guest posting opportunities by evaluating the backlinks from competing blogs.

Use tools such as https://www.semrush.com  or https://majestic.com/ to crawl through backlinks, and find other blogs that your competitors have written for.

So, aside from guest blogging – what else can you to drive targeted traffic to your website?

Offer something for free!

The easiest way to make a lot of money and convert traffic into leads is by offering something for free that others would sell.

 

Everyone loves free stuff. It’s the easiest way to earn the trust of potential leads, and to encourage them to give you a chance to earn their business.  Not only that but you can get incredible social media shares (can you say VIRAL?) by offering something extremely valuable at absolutely no cost.

Not to mention that when others start to share your offer you’ll generate massive amounts of inbound links to your blog – ultimately, increasing your traffic for FREE.

Create A Landing Page

 

If you truly want to increase conversions, you need to immediately stop sending traffic to your blog’s main page, if you are trying to capture leads and build a mailing list.

Instead, create a highly targeted landing page for that audience!

These landing pages can be easily linked and featured within your navigation menu so that even those who do land on the front page (or find themselves arriving within an internal page on your site) can still find the page.

The objective of a landing page is to outline clear value, engage a potential visitor and convert them into a lead.  Landing pages aren’t designed to necessarily sell a product.  It’s the front-line in your mission of converting a visitor into a lead. That should be its only objective.

 

Your landing page should feature your mailing list opt-in form up front and center, and a lead magnet.

Lead Magnets:

  • Free report or digital book (eBook)
  • Case studies
  • Infographics
  • Weekly newsletter

 

Basically, a free, yet valuable resource that will kick them into action and convince them to take a chance on you.

Tips, Tricks & Strategies

 

Here are some other tips, tricks and strategies to increasing conversion rates, and turning those visitors into qualified leads:

Cut down on the clutter:
You need to simplify the process of converting a visitor into a lead which starts by decluttering your blog’s interface. You don’t want it to feel too busy, or complicate a user’s ability to navigate throughout your website.

So, remove anything that isn’t necessary.  Eliminate distractions so that your visitors are focused on where you choose to lead them (signing up for your newsletter, purchasing a product, sharing a piece of content).

I’ve previously mentioned how it’s important to create landing pages for your blog and this is yet another reason why.  Landing pages keep your audience focused on your digital marketing and will ultimately increase your conversion rates.

Define individual page objectives:
Every page on your blog should have a clear objective. This means that if your intention is to convert leads into subscribers, your “OPT IN PAGE” should feature nothing but your opt-in box and relevant information such as the benefits of joining your newsletter.

It’s important to set an objective for every page so that your blog is not only easy to navigate, but that every single page and area on your website is focused on the task at hand. Doing this will also keep your blog organized and pages clutter-free, minimizing distractions and providing your visitor with a positive experience.

Know your audience better than they think you do:
No one blog is a one-size-fits-all. It’s important to know who your audience is before you even begin to create a blog, much less landing and product pages.

 

No one has ever managed to create a blog that appeals to all audiences or solves all problems, so don’t waste your time trying. Create a laser targeted blog that speaks to one specific audience, and learn everything you can about them.

Take advantage of the power of social proof:

Social proof can break down barriers and encourage people into taking action. In simple terms, social proof reinforces trust in your brand, showcases your ability to provide value and demonstrates that other people have faith in your business.

Social proof can include:

  • Testimonials
  • Case Studies
  • Comments
  • Likes (yes! Aren’t you more likely to LIKE a Facebook page that has hundreds of other likes?)

Partnerships (logos of other blogs, etc)

Feature social proof throughout your blog pages whenever possible.  If you have yet to generate any form of social proof consider asking an expert to comment on one of your articles, or offer to guest blog on authority websites and then ask permission to feature that blog’s logo or title on your blog as a place you have contributed to.

Go The Extra Mile

 

Do you really want to kickstart your efforts at converting visitors into leads? Consider taking things to the next level!

Here are a few other ways to do that:

Implement Live Chat:
Give your visitors a direct line of communication where they can ask questions or contact you. While this can be time-consuming, most live chat software will allow you to turn it on or off during specific times, so if you have an hour to spare here and there throughout the week, it could be the extra push visitors need to join your newsletter, service, etc.

Even better, live chat software typically comes bundled with powerful analytics which can help you better understand your audience.

 

From what pages’ your visitors spend the most time on, what website they have come from as well as where they go when they leave your blog, to what types of content they are most responsive to (or how often they share it!), you’ll be able to gain valuable insights to how your visitors interact while on your blog.

Conclusion

 

Transforming your traffic into qualified leads isn’t that difficult when you start with evaluating your traffic sources ensuring that you are focusing on driving relevant, targeted prospects to your blog.

Tapping into all forms of communication such as social media, forums, competing blogs and newsletters, are all powerful ways to funnel fresh, quality traffic to your blog that will easily convert.

Boost your exposure and set yourself apart from the competition by offering added incentive for visitors to subscribe to your newsletter and revisit your website.

Focus on the hottest, tightly-written content possible providing visitors with many different content formats (videos, infographics, content that is available in PDF format so they can download it for later use), and stay active within your niche by engaging with prospects and leads wherever they congregate.

Initially launching and getting your blog off the ground requires the most work, but once you have developed a network of premium, relevant traffic sources that will funnel prospects into your blog pages, you’ll be able to turn those visitors into highly qualified leads.

You got this!
