Top 5 Ways to Boost Traffic

# 1 Put URL on everything

Make sure your URL website address is on everything!  Especially your promotional print materials such as busi­ness cards, adver­tis­ing signage and news­pa­per ads. You may be able to save print advertising dollars by getting a smaller sign but adding your URL.  Use your website to give details on current promotions or featured sales.

#2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Opti­mize your web­site with professional SEO services using rel­e­vant indus­try key­words to boost traf­fic through organic (free) search results. Place key­words in the page text, head­ings, title, in the URL, and on meta and image tags.

#3. User friendly design and layout

If cus­tomers or prospects are unable to nav­i­gate your web­site and find rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion, they won’t come back and they won’t rec­om­mend your web­site to oth­ers. Orga­nize infor­ma­tion using a clean design that allows users to eas­ily see valu­able product/service information

#4. Referrals

Sub­mit your web­site to indus­try direc­to­ries and asso­ci­a­tions. Also, link to your web­site from rel­e­vant online direc­to­ries or other local busi­nesses and asso­ci­a­tions such as the cham­ber of com­merce and town’s online busi­ness list­ings. Have friends, fam­ily and indus­try col­leagues pass on your infor­ma­tion through their social media networks.

#5. Social media

Face­book, Twit­ter, Linkedin, Google+, YouTube …the list goes on and on. Engage users through social media, pro­vide com­pelling con­tent, and ask them to share your con­tent with their social networks
