traffic generation

This is a guest post by Ben Farmer from Ivory Design.

Memes are created, appreciated and adored by all kinds of people. Business owners and online marketers love them because they’re a great way of enticing traffic to your site: legions of geeks like me will waste hours (literally hours) giggling at and sharing these weird little pictures we find funny.

Graphic and web designers love them the way head chefs and food critics secretly love McDonald’s: after a lot of hard, carefully thought out work, goofing off with a picture of a crazy dog with the caption “ermahgerd” is junk food for the eyes. And the Internet using public loves them because most of them are brilliantly funny. Some border on Dadaists weirdness and some border on artistic genius, but they all give the same end result: me giggling in a very undignified way, before clicking “Like” or “Pin This”.

It’s not so easy as jumping on whatever bandwagon’s currently getting the most Pins or Re-tweets, however: there are a couple of guidelines you can follow to ensure that a geek like me will giggle at your meme rather than hate or, worse, ignore it.

Follow me, geekbaiters!

There is no feeling like finishing a post, you’ve spat all your words out onto the page and are ready to send it off to the world-wide web waiting for it to be judged by the discerning reader.

The greatest temptation of all at that point is to just publish that post and go downstairs to make a cup of tea (or vodka, whatever is your poison) but this is the very way to put people off reading your posts because without all the trimmings; your post is nowhere near meeting its true potential.

Here is a list of things that I do after the post is written to make it a more attractive proposition to the audience:

Traffic is the lifeblood of any blog. We all know it’s hard to survive without it in the blogosphere.

But let’s face it – as a blogger you don’t just need traffic, you need laser targeted traffic. You need readers that are actually interested in reading your content. Visitors that you can turn into subscribers.

So how do you go about getting this traffic? What do you do get more interested readers?

There are many ways to get exposure to your blog, but one way that stands out from the rest is LinkedIn. As a blogger if you’re not tapping into this powerful social network, you’re leaving some serious traffic on the table.

LinkedIn is where the professional crowd hangs out. It’s THE place to network with other bloggers and reach out to your target audience.

Although it may take Google+ some time to go par with the likes of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networks, it can be safely said that Google’s own version of socialization is slowly establishing itself to eventually go up the ranks. Considering that its name is backed by the world’s most popular search engine, Google+ now dons a cape of great potential to be as successful as its competitors and if not, even go past them.

Google+ is still an underdog when it comes to public interest and popularity but creating a niche with them as a part of your content marketing strategy is one way to kick off your business along with creating a page in other sites as well; it’s a fresh and novel take that anyone can use to promote, to advertise and to establish anything or anyone.

Embracing the rest of the world and telling them that you and your business are ready and capable enough can start with Google+.
