Traffic is the lifeblood of your online business. It doesn’t matter whether you are involved in niche marketing, affiliate marketing, sell physical product or digital goods, or you are simply interested in building brand awareness; without traffic, your website will flat line as will your ability to build a successful online business.
The truth is, when it comes to jump starting a website, finding and luring traffic in, is actually quite simple if you take the time to carefully structure your campaigns before your launch.
You need to create a system based on longevity, so that you can continue to generate traffic to your website long after the initial rush.
So, let’s get right to the heart of the matter; creating a rock solid, powerful traffic campaign that will skyrocket your sales and boost your brand awareness!
And Much, Much More!
Those who haven’t seized the power of social marketing are missing out on what is one of the easiest strategies of generating fresh, targeted traffic, at absolutely no cost.
One of the most popular social networks, carrying remarkable branding power is – Twitter!
Twitter’s interface is simple to navigate, and it’s popularity is unbeatable in comparison with any other social community, including Facebook.
The trick to generating traffic with information portals like Twitter is to be as active as possible and to post a mixture of both free and informative messages (referred to as ‘tweets’) as well as promotional messages that will send people through your affiliate links off to the merchants website.
Always try to think of ways of being entertaining, as the majority of people on twitter are interested in networking and communicating with new friends, and are reluctant to click on links or visit websites that they believe are promotional based. This means that you need to take a very different approach when promoting through these networks.
With social networking sites you can:
1: Direct contacts to a squeeze page where you offer them a free download/product to encourage sign ups to build a targeted mailing list.
2: Direct contacts to your blog where they can learn more about you and your company.
3: Build brand awareness and an increased following base by using this option to thank them for following you, while simply including your website URL within your automated message.

When creating your articles for distribution, keep in mind that the title of your article is one of the most important components.

You have only a few seconds to pull them in!
Generally, your articles should never be longer than about 300-350 words. This is enough to get your article accepted, but not so long as to lose your readers attention.
You also want to make sure that your content is unique, targeted and structured so that it addresses your prospects concerns, answers their questions, and solidifies your ability to provide them with the information they are looking for.

Why: The benefits of the product or service and why your reader should purchase.
