4 Incredible Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Daily Deal Website
(or any website for that matter).
I recently blogged about 3 good ways to drive traffic to your website, and today I am going to be
discussing 4 ways that you can use to easily drive traffic to your daily deal site (or any website
for that matter).
There are hundreds of millions of people that get on the internet every single day, and nearly
every one of them is actively looking for some sort of information. The amount of traffic that is
floating around the internet is massive and as long as you strategically put yourself in a position
where traffic is already flowing, you can easily tap into the massive amount of traffic that is
readily available to drive to your website.
Without further ado, let's jump right in.
1. Create remarkable content.
This is by far the best way to drive traffic to any website that you desire. The important thing to
remember is that you want to create remarkable content - and if you do just that - people will
want to remark and share your information. We now live in a social world and people have the
ability to take in massive amounts of information.
If you create incredible content that is worth sharing, you will gain traction and begin receiving
traffic. One of the most important aspects of this is that you need to create great content on a
There are many different forms of content that you can create and submit throughout the
internet to gain new eyeballs to your website...
I recommend to create a blog using WordPress or Blogspot. Plan out your blog schedule
one month ahead. It is recommended to blog twice a day, but be realistic with yourself and
if you can only realistically blog 3 times a week, that is totally fine and the 2 blog post a day
recommendation really is only that... a recommendation. On your calendar that you create,
simply map out the main keywords that you want to tackle that particular month and include a
general outline of blog titles that you intend to write about.
The more you blog - the more traffic you will get.
You can also turn your blog posts into other forms of content. It is important to create all
different types of content because people enjoy different forms of media. People enjoy reading,
watching, and listening - so it's important to reach out and connect with the web using all forms
Turn your blog posts into videos that you submit to YouTube and other major video
Do audio Podcasts.
Submit Press releases.
Social bookmark your websites.
The list goes on and on but the reality is that you can truly kill multiple birds with one stone
by simply focusing on making your blog content incredible and proceeding to recycle that
information into other forms of media and then submitting that content to various high page
2. Pay For Your Traffic
Another huge way to drive loads of traffic to your daily deal website is to pay money for your
traffic. A very important thing to note is that if you pay for traffic; start small, prove your results,
and grow accordingly.
You can pay for traffic using;
StumbleUpon Paid Discovery
.... and many other sources of paid traffic such as CPA networks and beyond. The
previous examples are definitely enough to wet your whistle - but just remember to
start small, prove results, and grow accordingly. Most of the above paid advertising
venues allow you to split test various ad creatives and I highly recommend to do this as
it will further increase your profit margins.
3. Joint Ventures
You can create a mutually beneficial arrangement with another business owner to drive traffic,
leads, and sales to eachothers products and services. Having an affiliate program that allows
people to get paid a commission every time they drive traffic to your site and that traffic ends up
converting to a sale - is an extremely easy way to drive a huge amount of risk free traffic.
One of the most important parts of fully taking advantage of joint ventures is to have some sort
of leverage. Whether that be that ability to email a broadcast to your list of subscribers, put
an ad on your website, or one of the many other multitudes of ways that you can add value to
another persons business in exchange for them adding value to yours.
Joint ventures are huge. It's not what you know. It's who you know.
4. Guerrilla Marketing
No, I am not doing guerrilla marketing at 2 am again, however, guerrilla marketing can be
absolutely huge for your business.
You know those ridiculous shoes that have 5 slots for you toes? Yeah, those really weird
looking ones... Well those guys at Vibram started out by word of mouth alone. They created a
product so interesting and different that they didn't even have to focus on advertising because
people talked about their product.
Your goal should be to create something so incredible cool that people will want to tell their
friends about it.
The main premise of guerrilla marketing is to do something out of the ordinary that will get
people talking about your products and services for you. Make tee shirts, run billboards, crazy
TV advertisements, etc.
Stand out in a crowd full of people who look the same and are doing the same thing.
Driving traffic is one of the biggest struggles that everyone faces and do not feel bad when you
start following these tips and don't immediately have hundreds of thousands of your visitors. It
takes time. It takes persistence. It takes dedication. It takes work.
Use these tactics to drive traffic to your daily deal website (or any website for that matter). If
you don't have a website, I would encourage you to get involved in the daily deal industry and
create a daily deal website or a daily deal aggregator website using http://dailydealbuilder.com
& http://dodaggregator.com respectively.
