I have just learned of some techniques you can use to drive traffic to your webpage. No, it’s not as easy as popping open a can of chilled brew while you sit on your butt and watch youtube videos. These techniques also aren’t free, so make sure you actually have a webpage that is worth spending your money on to get people to visit.
Assuming you have the money to spend, and the content worth spending it on, these techniques should get your webpage lots of traffic. But rather than babble on anymore about them, let me just give a link: 100,000 Facebook Likes in 30 Days.
I can hear the grumbling already. “Arph, old boy, that is a great article, but it is already a year old! Things on the internet change fast. And I don’t have that kind of money to spend!”
Fair enough. But if you read, or even glanced through the article, you should have gotten something valuable from it, whether you understood it or not. (To be honest, most of it is WAY over my head.) What is that “valuable something” you should have gotten? INSPIRATION!
What I am trying to say here, in my usual incoherent disheveled way, is that you too can be a successful, paid internet author. Yes, YOU! That is, if you are willing to put in the time and effort to do so.
Not convinced? Check out the author’s blog: http://www.jamesaltucher.com/. I don’t agree with everything he writes, (I’m not as negative towards working for corporate America as he is), but there is plenty on there worth reading, and plenty to get excited, (or riled up!), about.
“Wait a minute,” you say. “What the heck does inspiration have to do with driving traffic to my website?”
Plenty, actually, because I believe that the first, biggest obstacle we have to overcome with any successful venture is our own reluctance to begin. We have to break through the inertia that arises from our fear of failure, (and, believe it or not, our fear of success!). This guy just PROVED that you, (once again, that’s YOU!), can drive traffic to your webpage. Don’t like these techniques? Then do some research and find some that work for you.
“But I …….” No! No excuses anymore! Just do it!
I want to give you a few more links in this article. I learned about James Altucher via an email list I subscribed to from www.btwoweb.com. Now I must be the densest person in the world, because for the life of me I can’t figure out how I signed up for that email list, so I have to direct you to his contact page, where you could ask to be put on it. He also has some great info on his site, such as blogging for a living, and building websites. Good stuff, and it’s all free!
Someday, when we’re all rich and famous internet celebrities, we will wonder how it was ever possible we could not know these things, and how we could ever doubt that we’d be successful.
