Don’t Rely on a Single Traffic Source

Traffic is the blood of your online business, it does not matter if you are sending them to your blog, youtube channel, your own products or affiliate products, you always need eyeballs for the survival of your online business.

One mistake that you should avoid at all costs is to put all your eggs in one basket, such as relying on a single traffic source. Anyone who has spent even a few months in the world of Internet marketing will be able to tell you that everything is changing constantly.

Don’t Rely on a Single Traffic Source

An autoresponder company can close your account at any time without any notice, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram the can shut your account and in one night you can lose the large following you have in social media.

I still remember when Google’s Penguin algorithm led to many affiliate sites shutting down and recently, Facebook decreased the organic reach of pages. There is nothing worse than having to go to sleep worried about Google rolling in a new update and penalizing your websites. That is why you should focus on diversifying and driving traffic through multiple sources.

As we seen above having a single source of traffic is suicidal, but in any way, I am not telling you to go out there and try to do every traffic stratergy out there. Just pick two and start with them.

My recommendation.

As I said you should pick two traffic sources and try to master them, then when you start to drive you enough traffic, ad the third one, the main idea is that you should never have a single traffic source contributing more than 50% of your total traffic.

The main stratergy here is to pick one free traffic and one paid traffic then add one paid traffic when you start making some money.

Paid traffic source

For me, solo ads are the best paid traffic source for beginners, for those who don’t know solo ads is when you pay someone who got an email list to send your email to their subscribers.

The reason why I will recommend this traffic source is that most people who sell solo ads are online marketers and they know how this business works, most of them they will help you to fix your squeeze page if there is a problem.

If you try another paid traffic sources like facebook ads, google ads, bing ads etc, all they have some guidelines that you will have to follow and you will spend a lot of time trying to fix your pages and meet those guidelines and the bad news is probably they will ban you anyway.

The best place to start looking for solo ads is Udimi, Udimi is the best solo ads marketplace online today if you can’t find solo ads in your niche just try to google ”your niche+solo ads”.

Free traffic source

For me blogging is the best free traffic source out there, is do you have a blog kudos, if you don’t have you can start one in the next 20 minutes if do you want to do so.

You can get a domain name from Namecheap and you can get a hosting from Sitegroud at a discounted price here. Inside Siteground hosting, you will find a one-click button to install your WordPress blog.

The process here is you buy clicks and some people will join your email list, you will write a short piece of content and post it to your blog, with some affiliate links and then you will send a link of your blog post to your subscribers, in this way you will kill three birds at the same time, grow your list, grow your blog and make sells.

Final words

My final word to you is that don’t ever rely on the single traffic source, start with two, one free and one paid to accelerate your online success, then add at least one more, don’t let a single traffic source contribute more than 50% of the total traffic.
