What is enriched traffic? It’s traffic that is targeting people who are interested in your niche. If you’re in Network or Multi Level Marketing, or have some kind of hobby or interest you’re dying to share, along with humble resources, then blogging for enriched traffic is a great way to keep the costs to a minimum, while drawing interest to your site. You can set up a blog fairly inexpensively. There are free blog platforms, but that may not be best the way to start if you really want to focus on traffic.
My suggestion is to purchase a domain name, along with securing a hosting company. The odds are that you’ll rank better for traffic, and traffic is a major reason for turning your sales into conversions. The more enriched traffic to your site, the better the chances of getting those sales. Who wants to promote a site, or write about a topic they love, and not have anyone read it? Enriched traffic is necessary. Blogging can be beneficial on both accounts.
Try these steps to help target enriched traffic:
- Promote your business or hobby by blogging 400-500 words daily. Use keyword research to help you target the right words for your niche. Submitting your articles to e-magazines will also add to traffic enrichment.
- Spice up your topic so the reader cannot wait to get to the next sentence. Spice is nice, but make sure you also love what you’re blogging about. You want to be connecting with the reader so that they’ll return to your blog. Heart definitely comes through on the page.
- Determine that the content of your blog is the best it can possibly be. Who wants to read something that’s only half-hearted? People are smart enough to know when you’re just putting something on the page to have it there. Give people value. Also, good content gets you ranked better with the search engines.
- Take an inexpensive blogging class to get the fundamentals. There are many classes that aren’t expensive and worth the small investment. With classes you not only learn your basics, but you get to connect with others and network.
- Proofread for spelling mistakes. I’ve done this (many times) and nothing looks worse than overlooked mistakes. People will simply think you don’t care enough to make it your best.
- Try to keep your topics to a minimum. One of my mentors suggests that you should go deep and not wide on topics. That way people will hone in on what your passion and field of expertise really is. If your hobby or business for example is quilting, write all about the different types of quilts, techniques, and even where to buy fabulous fabrics. Try to stay on topic for your blog. If you really want to write about something completely different, perhaps start another blog, or write it as a way to add to your e-magazine portfolio.
Don’t be discouraged if the traffic doesn’t come overnight; it takes time. Just focus on your writing. People are always looking for information; your blog articles will eventually get out there and get linked back to your site.
Most information is valuable, and it can’t all be learned at once. Remember we all have to start somewhere, so start blogging for enriched traffic today.
