Is getting website traffic a hard thing for you to do? For most people it is, and it’s sad – because it’s so easy to do. Now if you’re on a very small marketing budget, it’s almost obvious that you will have to do some free marketing to fill in the gaps where paid advertising would usually take over.

But it’s okay if this is your problem. Luckily you could always get a job and use the income from your job to fund your internet business. That’s a simple solution. With that money, all you’d have to do is find a few proven advertising sources, and then pour your money into these sources. And then once you have all of this set up, just keep spending money into advertising until you’ve reach your desired “first income goal”… and go from there. It’s easy.

But all of this is assuming that you want to do paid advertising. When I first got started, the only thing that I wanted to do was article marketing. Some people had very long articles and blog debates about whether or not article marketing was better than pay per click advertising (PPC).

Well, back then… I had a lot of time on my hands. So I said, “Well, I’ll do both.” And ever since then, those 2 strategies have been a cornerstone of my entire marketing strategy. I still use them today, and I advise that you find at least 5 marketing strategies that you can do everyday – that will get you traffic, and get you sales. It’s easy. It may take some time if you’re a new beginner, but keep the faith, and believe in your business, and your hard work will eventually reward you.

So if website traffic is your main issue, don’t worry about it. There are all kinds of ways to get traffic. My favorite free ones are: article marketing, forum marketing, blog marketing, document sharing sites, and video marketing. A lot of free marketing has to deal with what you’re comfortable doing everyday to build your business, and if you enjoy it.

I’ve never been a real social guy like that. I have a lot of friends now, and I know how to make new friends (it’s just conversation)… but I choose not to make new friends a lot of times. So as far as social marketing goes… I kind of put it in the back of my mind. But there’s a major exception to this.

Ironically… lol… I love talking to my customers. Why? Because they are my customers lol. That means they’ve spent money with me, and are looking to improve their business and their lives. And I commend them on that. That may seem selfish, but if I get any complaints, I only want to hear complaints from people who have bought my stuff, and needed help with what they’ve read.

If someone I don’t know criticizes me, and have never bought anything from me… ever… why should it bother me? The most they will ever know is what they learn from my email newsletter and from my blog and articles. But as far as super advanced techniques, they will stay in the dark about it – because they didn’t purchase my materials.

Does this make sense?

Look traffic is easy, and don’t let anyone tell you differently. Be sure to get out there and start running ads and doing free marketing today.
