TOP 5 ways to Increase your business Website Traffic and Convert to Customers
You now own a business website, but no traffic to your website. I will show you how to do this without necessarily spending $1000 of dollars buying traffic.
Before going into much details, let’s get a brief idea about what Traffic is all about.
TRAFFIC: This is number of visitors that are visiting your website to get information or to consume the content in it because it is beneficial to them.
Below are top 5 ways to go about increasing a website traffic:
- Video Marketing
- Search engine optimization
- Social media
- Guest post
- VIDEO MARKETING: Video marketing can be the fastest way to increase your website traffic, according to statistics, Videos are 80% consumed than text content.
Creating YouTube videos and linking back to your website can literally improve your website traffic.
But if you can embed this videos on your website, you can keep all the traffic back to your website, instead of sending your users to YouTube to watch your content.
If you want your users to stay longer on your site, you have to improve your video content, let’s take for example, you have a product that wipes pimples, you can create a video tutor, explaining how to use the product in an effective manner.
And also, you video must have a catchy Headline and super Description.
- FREEBIE: Giving something away for free, can improve your traffic to almost 40%. You are not totally giving it out for free, but you are taking the users to your sign up page, where they will redeem the price
A freebie is a lead magnet that can catch the attention of users, everyone loves free things, and this lead magnet must be targeted to a certain type of customer who needs your product or service.
Rule of thumb: Always deliver what you promise to give away for free. Don’t sell to users, after subscribing to your email list.
First off all try building a relationship, and offer more things for free, you give give, then you hook.
This is the most important aspect of increasing traffic, users are very emotional, they trust you first when you give more.
They kind off become your invisible marketers, because, they will spread your website to their family, and mostly friends to enjoy same benefit.

- SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION: According to Wikipedia; (SEO) is the process of affecting the online visibility of a website in a web search engine’s unpaid results, often referred to as natural, organic or earned results.
SEO is the best practice to build traffic to your website, but you need to learn the basics.
Today there are SEO plugins such as the YOAST, which can be used to optimize SEO.
Example, let’s say, you own a Real Estate website, the only way to pave visibility, is to do this simple trick I learnt.
By adding, Real Estate | Real Term on the heading of your website will help user and search bot understand more about what you are into, instead of putting Home| Real Estate.
As an internet marketing strategy, SEO considers how search engine works.
Optimizing a website may involve editing its content, adding content, doing HTML, and associated coding to both increase its relevance to specific keywords and to remove barriers to the indexing activities of search engines.
Promoting a website to increase the number of backlinks, or inbound links, is another SEO tactic.
- SOCIAL MEDIA: Social media has become the trend of building website traffic, but only few know the tactics to go about this.
To grow your traffic, you need to create valuable information on social media and then link back the traffic to your website.
A good way to do this is using Facebook group. Start creating posts, and videos that will help your users, then link back the traffic back to your own website.
A good example of this is SMARTBCAMP, Big Business community. This group is worth over 90k active members.
And guess what this group is creating tons of value every day.
The more value you create the more traffic you get in return its vice versa.
- GUEST POSTING: Guest posting is a serial way of dragging chunk of traffic, back to your website.
I recommend you use medium to guest post. It’s a sure banker.
Go to Medium and look out for posts with highest shares and message the author to Guest post on his website.
If he agrees, it’s a win win. Provide a valued content and refer back to your website.
But before going into this, I advise you use this strategy.
Create 3 Pillar post articles on your business website.
This content must be seasoned in such a way that it draws attention immediately when a user visits.
With this pillar content, you can use it to link back whenever you guest post on a popular website.

Building Traffic to your website, no longer takes months or years, but Consistency and love for the hustle.

Master one strategy and become an expert doing it.
