How can I get more traffic on a blog?

I just got off a phone call with a prospective client 30 minutes ago, and holy hell — was she at the end of her rope.

I guess this isn’t completely unusual for me to see, as people never reach out for help until they absolutely need it…

But I haven’t seen a case this bad in a while.

Like most entrepreneurs, she started a business with the hopes of making money online from the comfort of her home, needing nothing more than a laptop and an internet connection…

But unlike a lot of other people I talk to, she actually had a decent system in place.

She’d been around long enough to understand how you need some sort of lead nurturing system on your website, that way clients can become familiar with you and get value before signing-up for anything else…

But even though she spent hours doing this, and even more hours trying everything she could in order to drive traffic back to her website…

She didn’t have one lead (or sale) after 6 months, and that’s what brought us here today.

After hearing her (subtly) vent, talking about how she’d followed all the advice provided by female bloggers…

Spending all her time posting infographics on Pinterest and getting no results for it, she finally asked if I had any advice on how she could start getting 1,000 visitors on her website every month…

And this was almost depressing to hear, because if you’re worried about getting 1,000 visitors every month, then you probably shouldn’t be doing business full-time…

But, I’ve been there before, so I can’t judge.

With that said, I was almost scared to tell her my methods, as I was sure she’d probably heard them before…

But I decided to tell her exactly what I do anyway, and 5 minutes later — her mind was blown.

To my surprise, she’d never heard of these tactics before, not to this extent anyway…

And that made me realize I needed to share this simple, yet highly effective information — in the hopes of saving another poor soul from the terrible advice that tells you to depend on SEO/Social Media in the beginning stages.

Now I’ll get to the actual tactics here in a second, but before we get there, the formula for getting traffic back to your website is incredibly simple…

And that’s:

Valuable content + your target market’s hotspot + call-to-action (to a good offer at the end) = endless traffic

So now that’s out of the way, let me show you 3 effective methods I’ve used to drive 10,000 visitors back to a website every month (in multiple industries).

Method #1 — Guest blogging

Now the funny part about this method is how most marketers/entrepreneurs are aware of it…

But most of them don’t use it anymore as they’ve heard it doesn’t help their SEO.

Is that true?

I have no idea, and honestly, don’t care much about SEO…

So this isn’t my area of expertise, but logistically speaking — it doesn’t make sense.

Sure, I understand what most people are saying, about how it doesn’t help with backlinks and all that good stuff…

Which might be the case, but they completely overlook other important SEO factors as well — such as getting traffic on your website and having them share your other articles…

So there’s a case for both sides, but at the end of the day — it’s still the best way to drive traffic back to your website…

And it’s really not that hard either.

As I mentioned earlier, the main importance is just getting valuable content in front of your target audience…

So all you need to do is write a good article, then find a relevant website that’ll publish it…

And trust me, every website owner out there is ALWAYS willing to publish quality content on their site.

In other words, any relevant website would work…

But it takes a little bit of time to establish a relationship with bloggers who aren’t looking for guest posts right away…

So to start, I’d advise going to Google and searching for [“Your industry” submit guest post].

To give you an example of this, let’s say I was looking to gain some traffic for one of my marketing funnels, so I’d simply jump on Google and search for:

“Marketing” submit guest post

After that I’d see:

And from there, I’d start looking at each of them to find my best fit.

As a general rule of thumb, just make sure you look at other articles and see how much engagement they get.
