One of the primary aspects of internet marketing is bringing people to a website or webpage…this is what is typically referred to as “traffic.” There are numerous techniques for getting traffic to a website and it can sometimes be overwhelming to know exactly where to start…especially on a brand new website starting from scratch! Over the years, I’ve tried to “simplify” this process and have come up with what I refer to as the “Internet Marketing Mindmap” to provide a visual reference for most of the strategies that I use.
This internet marketing mindmap has a foundation of “increasing website traffic”. While many would say that “making money” is the primary goal, it’s actually the traffic that leads to success. Also, “making money” may not always be the ultimate goal. It could be to win a contest or election, increase awareness to a cause, build a community of like-minded people, etc. Whatever the “goal” is, there is always the foundational requirement to increase website traffic. So, with that said, let me break down what you’re about to see.
