The Power of Diverse Traffic Through Social Media


It becomes easier to market your blog post since there is a wide variety of social media sites. The only problem that seems to rob your fame is the strategy and marketing tactics that you have practiced over time and again, that could be the reason why you are not seeing the results you want to.

Two of my post on Stumbleupon have attracted more than 5,000 pageviews in one week. My free report card on how you can drive massive traffic to your blog through stumbleupon and how to stumble without your mouse have been popular in the stumbleupon community. If you write about Digg and topics on how users can exploit the system to gain front page coverage, this is newsworthy post which will usually be dugg by Digg users, and the internet community. The best way for you to achieve a great channel of website traffic and increased revenue is by taking advantage of social media.

Here are 7 ways to increase your channel of traffic from Social media:

Signing up with a targeted group of social media network

I would like to stress on the importance to have at least one of these services to promote yourself - Facebook or myspace. Give yourself a profile in these communities where a healthy lot of others can see you in your private life. You will be surprise by the amount of visitors you get through these two giant communities.

Do You Social Bookmark?

Through social bookmarking, some of the interesting pages on your site are featured which viewers can read while browsing on relevant topics. I love to use bookmarks because I will be able to run through a list of my favourite post and share with others. Among the popular social bookmarking sites today are Stumbleupon and Del.icio.us.

Online Interaction

Options of contacting you online can be more open, giving others another way of communicating with you live when you are online would be a good idea. MSN, skype and Facebook online are greats tools to talk to each other without paying the experience phone bills unless you have a business proposal which you would like to talk on the phone service.

Offline Interaction

Interactive sites/forums are a good way of communicating if you time zone and the other party is different by 12 hours. Emails are also another way to keep both you and your potential client or readers linked.

Becoming the next Vlogger

The success of using videos in blogs have seen problogger, Johnchow, Bloggerunleashed and many others gain more popularity over the past few months than the rest. Even celebrities are swithcing to the use of vlogging for promotion, BoA, Korean Popsuperstar, has thus opened her own Youtube channel in order to penetrate the US market as rumored, it was a tactful move by her and her fans will be interested to see her comments back.

Share Your Moments With Your Friends and Readers

If you subtract away the serious portion of business blog, you get just blog and blog is about you speaking what you have to say, speaking in a causal way opens door to others to interact with you online and offline. Displaying your photos on your blog or social networks is a good way to share what you have experienced with others. I am sure others would not mind seeing you in your pyjamas, still typing a post for tomorrow's entry!

Do you twit like a bird?

Microblogging have become very popular since twitter launched its services, it became viral and many bloggers are now updating their news and daily rants on Twitter. Follow me if you are also on twitter because twitting like a bird is not a crime!


Identify and Participate in the Niche Communities

After you have created a list of communities to target, draw up a participation schedule where you’ll register profiles on social media channel and contribute to the community via commenting, story submissions, discussions with other users etc.

You should keep your profiles and your blog identified as one so here are some tips for you to take note:

Keep your Avatar and Bio similar like copyprinted on all social sites you have targeted. Branding and clear vision on who you are gives others a reason to remember you as an authority blogger in this niche field. It also makes it easier for other individuals to find and befriend you, especially if you are participating in multiple websites.

Using the inverted pyramid to funnel channels of flowing traffic. Your purpose of spreading your eggs to different baskets is to receive better returns through spread out investments. Keeping your posting newsworthy sites and comments on post that you have voted for will increase the probability of traffic.

Do you have another method of diversifying your traffic through social media, I would like to hear from you!

Social media does wonders. As I started my blog (it is now 21 days old) most of the promotion was through twitter - I now have over 70 subscribers and average 150 visits a day.

The key to social media success is consistency.

Keep on writing, sharing and traffic/exposure will find you.

Social media has been a will continue to be a great tool that forces ad agencies to conduct their business development the way they should have been doing it all along. Leading with "benefits" rather than "capabilities" stating their point of differentiation and appeal to a specific target audience rather than being a generalist.

social media traffic can be a proof that they know how to build quick attention for a site. However, beyond that shot of traffic, what is there to show? For those in the SEO business, there is not much else, traffic sells. For businesses that make their living on and off the web, traffic like this is not helpful. It is not direct, and the numbers show that there is even less engagement and branding impact than any other source of traffic. So besides a quick influx of visitors who don’t stick around or even read the full page, what is the benefit?

One of the most effective ways of getting the word out about a new post is to let other bloggers know about it. There isn’t much more powerful a way to find new readers than another blogger recommending something you’ve written to people who trust them.

social media is basically generating traffic to your sites through social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and submission sites like Digg. This could mean that you sign up for a Twitter account and you add a Twitter feed on your blog or auto-post your new blog posts on your Twitter page.Since you are setting up multiple niche websites, you most likely are not using your real name on the sites or not letting people know that you own all these affiliate websites.
