Solve Your Traffic Problem Today!

This article is a continuation of my How to Write Articles post. To read that post click here.

When it comes to making money online we all face the same problem. How to get enough traffic to the websites we promote.

And not just any traffic … we want people who know what we offer and are interested before they get to our sites, right?

So how can you do that? This article will show you a proven way. A way that works.

First, you should know that you have options. Many people who promote things online, whether they be affiliate marketers or product owners, have tried the standard fare.

Things like solo adspay per clickFacebook ads, banner ads and more can work … if you know how to use them.

And there’s the problem — knowing, really knowing how to use the tools we all hear about every day.

I’m going to make a very specific suggestion. One that takes all the pressure off of you and gives you a clear path to the success you want when it comes to getting highly targeted traffic to your site. Ready?

The suggestion is this — find someone who is successful and model their success. But not just anyone.

The person you model needs to have three attributes. Three key characteristics that will help you trust them and know that you will have the best chance possible of success with their method.

Here they are.

First, you need someone who walks the walk, not just talks the talk. In other words, you want to follow someone who does what they teach, not someone who just sells ideas. There is a big difference between the person who knows what should work and the person who has made the Internet work for them.

Second, you need someone you can trust.

Third, you need someone who will work with you and consider your needs and skills, not just offer a “cookie cutter” solution.

Happily, finding that person can be done in five simple steps.

Step 1

Use Google to find out who the leaders in the “getting traffic” field are and visit their sites. You can also visit forums like the Warrior Forum to learn more about who is really doing the job and who is just talking themselves up.

Step 2

Can you afford what they offer? You are going to want to buy this person’s product, book or course so you need to know going in if it’s right for you. A $2000 course might sound great but you can’t afford the $2000 you will be wasting time learning about it.

Step 3

Does it make sense to you? Your parents were right when they told you that something that sounds too good to be true probably is. If the sites you research are making outrageous claims or promising success with “three clicks” hide your wallet and run. Only move ahead if something sounds logical to you.

Step 4

Do they have a good reputation online? You probably won’t ever meet your mentor so you need to do your homework online. Visit forums and ask around. Look for testimonials. Google is a great resource here. Just Google your possible mentor’s name and you will find what you need.

Step 5

It’s time to take action! If you find someone who has inspired you and filled you with confidence, and if you can afford what they offer, then now is the time to act!

Go for it and give it your all.

Here’s the bottom line. There is no need for you to reinvent the wheel. There are plenty of rock-solid mentors online who know how to drive traffic and are willing to teach you what they know for a reasonable price. The step you need to take now is to decide which voice suits you best.

Let me suggest an action step. Make a list of the various ways you have heard about to get traffic to a website on a sheet of paper. Choose the one that seems most logical to you. If you need a list of ways to drive traffic you can check out my Driving Traffic articles.

Choose the method that appeals to you, go to Google and type that phrase in the search box.

If there are people selling “how to” information about that topic, and there will be, they will be sure to be on the first page of results.

Avoiding the pain of losing money to trial and error is smart.

Take the five steps above and the only question you will need to answer is … who will be your mentor?

Getting traffic is a science. Once you educate yourself, you must take action. That is where most people come up short. They buy course after course and get information overload, but never take action and apply what they learn. There is plenty of traffic out there for everyone. You just have to go and get it. Thanks for sharing, Charlie.

Just a quick note: I made a quick cheat sheet out of your template (from part 1 of this article). Having it seems to remove writers block quickly (I recommend it to those reading this page). I also want to add (for those on a budget like me), I didn’t use to listen to anything about article writing or SEO. To shorten the story, I ended up doing a small bit, and discovered by accident, that my site visitors from these methods were of a better quality than my paid traffic.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us how to write an article I am not a fan in writing articles especially for blogs. I am so useless in doing that, but on receiving your e-mails about article writing articles kind of broke the spell and have now given me the idea on how to go about writing an article.
Thank you once again.

Hi: Charlie
Thakns for the great advice, I personally find driving traffic to be one of those
difficult jobs to do, and the method you shared them are very time cunsuming and require that
you spend a lot of time. I think for now I will just settle for PPC traffic as you said at least it is fast
and then my job will be tweaking and improving my sales page to increase the conversion if I will be selling my own products.

Thanks Charlie.

I like the style of this article a lot. The paragraphs are short, easy to read, and to the point. Much better than long-winded, hard to read paragraphs that might put many readers off before they even start reading.

As always, I thank you for the valuable advice.

Thank you very much Charlie for your very good articles about ” how to write an article”
I will try as much as possible to write an article.I am again sorry to display my ignorance but after writing a good article may be as a blog,how do I get income from it.
At the end of the day,we are all looking for immediate extra income.
I wish you a Happy father’s Day.

    If your focus is “immediate” income you will need to buy advertising. And there will be risk. Blogging and article marketing is much more reliable for long term growth.

Dear Charlie,
This was such an explosive article about getting mentored and getting traffic. And you are also so right about using Google for research. As a matter of fact I think that I might write an article about that… Thanks for the idea Charlie.

Article marketing is the best way I can think of off the top of my head to get quality targeted traffic. In the beginning, it may seem slower than molasses being poured from the jar onto your hot biscuits, however, over time it will pay for itself many, many times over. The reason for this is paid advertising gets you so many clicks or so much traffic only then it is finished.
Article marketing is like the Duracell bunny… he just keeps going and going. On the Internet there is no free ride when it comes to advertising, It is a myth. You will either pay with your hard earned cash or you will pay with your own sweat.
Thanks for another great article Charlie,
William Cato

Charlie,
I have been at Campmeeting all week so I did not have time to read either of your posts until I got home tonight. I did not comment on the first post as I knew I was coming straight to this one and would comment here.

As always your information is priceless and very well thought out. I have copied and pasted both posts into a word document I can review when ever I want to write and article.

Your sample article also put me back on track to developing a mentoring/training product/service. I believe I will follow your lead and give as much as I can freely and still be able to earn an income.

Thank you again for your insight and for caring enough about us to give of yourself.

Super Good looking Charlie, thanks again for content that matters and I can relay to my team members. This helps them share, or get the word out, just how they make passive income.
I so appreciate all you teach, especially with a humble heart.

Great advice Charlie! I have found a few mentors that I follow using a similar methodology as you laid out here. BTW, one of my mentors is you! I don’t want to be one of those ‘Hit and Run’ marketers and you prove that building an honest business online can be done. Thanks for all your help buddy!

Hi Charlie.

Thanks for this article. I wish I could get those advises on the beginning of my “online marketing path”. It would save me a lot of money and especially time.
In my experiences it is very hard to find someone you can trust. There were times when I was starting to ask myself: “Are most online (traffic and other marketing stuff) trainers just scammers?” Well, I’m glad that I was wrong and I muss say I found many people who really care and were ready to help me. Including you, Charlie.

Today I can finally say that I have developed more “precise feeling” to distinguish between good and bad (marketing) trainer. Probably most of us must go through this…
