Don't you want to grow your business? Well who doesn't? The problem is it's hard to grow your business
and market it unless you have a big marketing budget, right? That's a bunch of bullshit. You don't need money to market your business. Today I'm going to teach you how you can market
your website when you have no money to spend on advertising.
The beautiful thing about the web is social
media is free. It doesn't cost to be on there. The second beautiful thing about the web is
you can create content in any form. It can videos, it can be text, it can be audios
like podcasts. Creating these type of text formats or content
and then pushing out on social media is a great way to get more traffic. If you're trying to market your website and
you don't have any money to spend on advertising, here's what you want to do.
First, go to Quora and type in all the questions
people within your space may have. You'll start seeing tons of questions and
popular ones that are getting a lot of votes. Go into those questions, answer them. By helping people out you'll notice that more
people will see who you are, they'll come back to your website, and then they'll purchase. It really is that simple. You go to my Quora page on Neil Patel, you'll
notice that I've responded to hundreds of questions and I get hundreds and thousands
of views on my Quora questions and my profile each and every single month.
It's a great way to leverage their traffic
to generate traffic back to my website and sales. Best of all, I don't have to spend any money
to do that. The second thing that you should be doing
is posting your content on social media. You write a blog post. Post it on Twitter. You write another blog post. Again, post it on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn. The possibilities are endless. Continually share your content everywhere. You know what I do? I write a blog post once on my website.
Then I post the same content on LinkedIn. After adding a few paragraphs on LinkedIn
I say, "Hey, click to continue reading the rest." It makes them go back to my website to read
the rest of the article. I also put a snippet on Twitter, because it
only allows 140 characters, causes people to come back to my site. So sharing your content on social media is
another great way to get traffic. It's that simple. Go respond to people who are asking questions
on Quora. Go to Twitter. Look for people who are asking about stuff
within your field. So if someone's asking about marketing related
stuff, I would go on Twitter and just respond to them in 140 characters. Heck, I can even link to my own website if
I have content that also answers their question. It's a great way to get more traffic.
You know if you don't have a popular Twitter
profile, or you don't want to use Quora, just google for forums within your space. So if you're in the marketing space, just
google marketing forum, F-O-R-U-M. You'll see a list of forums. Go to them. Respond to questions that you can answer. In the footer of each of your forum responses
or in the signature link to your website. This will get more visitors back to your site. More traffic, means more sales. Thank you for watching and I look forward
to helping you out tomorrow..
