In this day and age, online marketing will always be part and parcel of growing your business—especially your website. However, it’s not enough to simply have a well-designed, functional site. After all, what use is a great website and great products or services if no one can see it?

For this reason, you really want to make an effort to drive traffic to your site consistently. If you want to regularly have people visiting your site and quickly build an audience, here are tried and tested ways to do so:

1. Explore opportunities for guest posting

Try reaching out to similar websites and pitch a particular blog topic related to your product and service. If they’re open to the idea, you may be able to publish on their blog and link back to yours. This is a great opportunity for you to reach a new audience that you know already has an interest in what you have to offer.

In addition, the more quality backlinks you have, the better your ranking will be on search engines. Just make sure you develop content that is thoughtful, relevant, useful, and well-researched. The post will essentially represent your brand.

2. Try signing up for online PR platforms

To get your articles read and expand reach, try signing up for online PR distribution services. These sites essentially let you sign up for a monthly plan where they will distribute your article to their network of affiliate online publications.

3. Build your social media following

On social media, you can easily engage with your users publicly and directly. The more people you can engage with, the more traffic you can potentially drive to your website.

Start by trying out social media ads. Paid social media ads help drive people to your profile page where you can showcase a curated collection of what’s on your website to entice them to visit. The best thing about it, all paid social media ads are actually scalable depending on your budget and needs.

You can also try running contests and promotions to boost engagement on your social media pages.

4. Consider Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising

PPC is an online advertising strategy that allows you display ads for your services or products and you only have to pay when someone actually clicks on your ad. This means you’re only charged when someone responds to your ad.

Keywords play an important role in this. You want to be able to build a PPC campaign anchored on actual keywords that your customers are searching for, so be sure to do your research.
