Article marketing and traffic generation is a great combination for bringing you highly qualified and highly targeted traffic. In this article we’re focusing on article marketing and the three types of traffic you must have.
3 types of traffic
These 3 types can deliver all the traffic you will ever need. I couldn’t stop the visitors coming into my web sites and blogs because of these strategies if I wanted to, and I assure you I don’t want to. And neither will you.
Let’s take a closer look at the three types of traffic you must have. It’s not a matter of just one type, it’s a matter of three types.
The first thing I ever learned about traffic on the Internet is this:
Don’t chase after traffic. Find out where the traffic is going and get in front of it.
Now, with article marketing and social marketing and social article marketing, I have added to that quote to say:
Don’t chase after traffic, find out where the traffic is going, get in front of it, and then re-direct it exactly where you want it to go.
And where you want it to go is your profit centers like your blog, your opt in pages, your product resource pages as well.
The three types of traffic are:
1) Immediate traffic
2) Regular traffic
3) Long-term/evergreen traffic
Immediate traffic is traffic that you want to get right away. Article marketing provides that for you. When you create a piece of content and put it on EzineArticle and other article directories, on your blog, and other places, you will get immediate traffic from that 20 to 30 minute investment that it took you to create that content and submit it. That is a great way to get immediate traffic.
Now, imagine having that power at your disposal. You need traffic, create another article. Boom. Simple as that.
Regular traffic means regular, daily, even hourly, consistent traffic from your efforts. Your articles and your content does that as well. An article that may be old to you is brand new to the person that finds it for the first time.
On an article directory, on your Facebook fan page, in your YouTube videos. That’s immediate traffic and then regular danielstampa consistent traffic.
Long-term evergreen traffic is traffic that keeps producing for you day after day, hour after hour, year after year for you once you created the bait or the content.
I’ve got one article that was written in August of 2005 and it still consistently averages 1,500 or more unique visitors a month for something I did many years ago. That’s evergreen traffic and that’s the kind of traffic you get when you get your articles out there, when you get your content out there. You get traffic, you get benefits from something you did weeks, months, even years ago.
And then you stack each piece of content, each article upon another. That evergreen traffic just continues to build and pretty soon you’ve got more traffic coming in than you ever thought and you won’t be able to stop it, even if you want to. And like I assured you, you won’t want to.
Those are the three types of traffic, immediate, regular, and long-term evergreen that you need to begin taking advantage of right away.
