I see new marketers all the time who have a goal of a $100,000 per year or even a million dollars per year. And how are they getting their traffic? They’re happily submitting articles, writing blogposts and commenting in forums and blogs.
Now, if your goal is to earn an extra $1,000 a month, then these methods are great. But if you want to earn far more, you’ll want to change the way you get traffic.
No one that I know of is making large sums of money using these methods. Instead, they are doing either SEO, PPC or Facebook Ads.
Or they have a HUGE list. But how do you get a huge, responsive list? Generally by using SEO, PPC or some kind of advertising.
So the real questions to think about when it comes to not only traffic but also any issue regarding your business is:
A) What is your goal?
B) Is what you’re doing going to get you to that goal this year?
And if it’s not – look for another method.
