Imagine driving massive traffic to your website. But not just any traffic. The kind of traffic that generates leads, email opt-ins and sales!

Generating and driving traffic to your website (or blog) is one of the biggest challenges new bloggers and online business owners face.

It has certainly been one of my biggest challenges. Which is why I want to share my successes with you. To show you how you can drive the best traffic to your website to grow your business

There are many ways to drive traffic to your website. The key to success is consistency. The most important choice you need to make when it comes to traffic is choosing a platform or method you enjoy.

You will be spending a lot of time doing it.

If you don’t enjoy it, you might find yourself getting discouraged. Then quitting before it has a chance to work for you.

One method that has been working tremendously for me is Quora. If you enjoy answering questions that help people solve problems this is a perfect place to do it.

Quora is a place where people with problems go for answers. You can ask specific questions to the general public or you can request specific people to answer your questions.

Once you sign up for Quora, I recommend committing to answering at least one question per day. A question that is in your field of expertise. Then end your answer with a link to an offer or lead magnet.

Once you build your own following, people will begin asking for your advice.

Quora sends you email notifications throughout the day with requests. Specifically from people asking for your response as well as general questions. Based on previous questions you have answered.

Now that I have a following, I get numerous requests to answer questions. Regarding business, marketing, email list building, blogging, Pinterest, traffic and writing.

Another way to drive traffic to your website and build your email list is YouTube. If you like doing videos you can create your own YouTube channel. It’s very easy to do. But again you need to stay consistent. Offer something of value by creating a short training video.

Then end the video by sending your perfect customer to your website. Tell them what your offer will do for them. How it can solve a problem or make their life better. Then direct them to your website by telling them exactly where to go. This is called soft teaching.

Use Soft Teaching to Build a Following

Soft teaching is where you teach something of value without giving away your best content. You show them that you know what you’re talking about.

By building credibility and proving to them that you are an expert. Then you entice them to want more of what you have to offer. They opt-in to your email list and then you sell them something that helps solve their problem.

You should do this with every traffic source you use. During interviews, in your blog posts, videos, podcasts, on social media and in your emails.

Another fantastic traffic source is Pinterest. In fact, many bloggers use Pinterest as their main source of traffic. You can drive thousands, or millions even, to your website using Pinterest.

I have reached millions yet. Mostly because I have been focusing on other things. However, I have been able to drive a consistent flow of traffic to my website using Pinterest. By doing just a few simple things I have learned.

It is one of the best and least expensive ways to drive traffic to your website. Plus, if you like getting a little creative it can be a lot of fun. It’s very easy to do once you learn the basics. The best part about Pinterest is once you learn how to automate it most of the work is done for you.

The Best Source of Traffic to Attract Your Perfect Customers

Out of the absolute best traffic sources I have used is the media. By getting interviewed as an expert on radio shows, live Facebook shows YouTube Channels and podcasts.

It is one of the best ways to establish instant credibility as the go-to expert in your industry.

Having a radio show host or podcaster with a loyal following toot your horn is amazing. Boasting about your success and your expertise. In fact, after my last podcast interview, I had my highest traffic month ever.

Think about it…

You are being interviewed on a podcast or show that is designed specifically for your perfect audience. The host of the show is telling his loyal followers all about you. Calling you the expert. Bragging about you. Then at the end of the show, they give you the opportunity to share your website and offer.

So you can tell your perfect target audience exactly where to go. Driving traffic to your website.

Not just any traffic but your ideal customer.

After my last interview, the Podcast host sent me a quick email that said, “That was fantastic! You are back!”

After taking a brief hiatus from the media, yes… I am back! Not just back but about to go full force with as many interviews as possible.

How to Get Featured on Radio Shows and Podcasts.

One of the easiest ways to get featured on radio shows is to let people know about a new book or offer. Writing a book can help you gain instant credibility as an expert in your industry.

To land you interviews on the best shows and help you get as much exposure for your business as possible.

Writing a book (and becoming a published author) is one of the easiest ways to get featured in the media. In fact, only 2 months after I published my first book I became the Health & Fitness Expert on an award-winning radio show with over two and a half million listeners.

Talk about positioning yourself as an expert.

I have since left the health and fitness niche to follow my true passion. My love of writing. Now I help people like you share your voice with the world. I help authors get published.

If you are ready to take your business to the next level you should strongly consider writing a book.

It’s easier than you think.

In fact, I wrote my first book in only 2 weeks. In less than two weeks I had my first book written, published and sold.

The interviews began to pour in. Show hosts started contacting me for interviews. Then I started getting invited to speak at events.

This is how writing a book can impact your business.

It can help you quickly grow your business, build your email list and drive consistent traffic to your website.

Not just any traffic but the right traffic.
