The ability to get traffic to your website will make or break your online home business. For those who have been running their business for awhile know that I’m not just talking about a few visitors a day. In order to really succeed making money online, you are going to need a considerable amount of targeted daily traffic on a consistent basis.
No matter what type of site you have, the most difficult part of running an online home business is establishing your website all over the internet and making its presence felt. You absolutely will not make any money until you learn to drive massive amounts of targeted traffic to your website.
When you are promoting your online home business it is imperative that you remember that you need to promote it on a large scale. In order to get your website ranked on the first page of the search engines and get the free targeted traffic you are after, you will need more than just a couple of hundred back links. You will need to first optimize your website for specific keywords that will draw targeted traffic then you will need more like tens of thousands of back links.
The best way to get traffic to your online home business by building back links is slowly but surely. Just by picking up back links on a daily basis will dramatically increase the amount of traffic to your site after a few months or years of doing so. Purchasing back links or adding too many right away might actually penalize your website rather than help it.
The amount of required traffic you need to generate sales or sign ups to your online home business ultimately depends on what market you are in. The business I am in, the online home business market will require anywhere from about 500+ visitors a day to get regular sign ups and sales.
Making money online is a numbers game. Once you figure out how much traffic you will need to get the regular sales or sign ups, put in the proper plan and action to make sure you can reach those numbers. Big numbers are tough to get, but taking small steps each day will get you one step closer to those numbers.
You should also be monitoring your progress often to make sure your traffic generating methods are working. There are plenty of free programs you can use to track your visitors to your online home business on a daily basis.
Do not get discouraged and give up if you are not making sales. Most likely you just aren’t getting enough traffic. Work harder and be patient. The internet will reward you for your efforts if you just hang in there. It’s most likely not the program you are using rather you probably just don’t have enough traffic.
