There are so many success stories about businesses being very profitable on the internet. Disturbingly, there are many more contradictory to this, up to 95 percent. Many have unsuccessfully launched an Internet business. Why is it that only a handful of entrepreneurs succeed? Are these few just lucky? Being in the right place at the right time? Yes and no. It is remotely possible that they got lucky.
But in reality, it is the eagerness to succeed and the determination to learn and the willingness to invest in a lot of hard work and of course money. Like Neo in the Matrix, traffic is “The One”. Without traffic, all your effort would just go to waste. Every business needs customers, without them you wouldn’t have anyone to sell your products to. In the real world, traffic is the walk in customer. The more foot traffic you have the more people you have to sell your products to.
On the Internet it is the visitor who opens your site and sees it. Like any business that’s in every corner building or in the mall, not everyone that goes in will buy, but the greater of number that do come in to browse your merchandise, the greater number of people that will buy your products. It is a simple and known fact.
But, how do you get traffic, traffic large enough or responsive enough to ensure a percentage of these visitors become buyers? And ensure its quality traffic, enough to make a profit. Many big companies generate traffic of tens of thousands a day and a measly ten to fifteen percent actually buy. But, that small percentage is enough to provide them with good business. And that is what we are looking to do with our business.
In truth, many of these success stories get their traffic by paying for it. Yes that’s right; you have to spend money to make money. Advertising is the key. The more people that know your site exists equals the more visitors your site will get. While there are many ways that can get you advertising for free, these do not generate the same high volume as those methods that are paid for. The number one way to paid advertisements is through sponsored advertising or pay per click.
The best examples are of course Google Ad words, Yahoo and MSN. The search medium is and will be the easiest and fastest way to finding what a person needs on the internet. Search engines have been very popular because they provide a vital service to people, quickly. They are free and easy to use. With their popularity, they get many visitors. It is easy to understand why many companies big or small would pay to advertise with these search engines.
Search engines provide information to millions of users each day. They provide links to many sites that a user may be looking for. If your sites link pops up in the high ranks of the free search results page, you have a great chance of the visitor clicking on your site. While search engine optimization is cheaper and low cost way to get your site a high ranking it is time consuming. To most businesses time is money, therefore, pay for advertisements and ensure you are on top. When you pay for your advertisements, it is like paying for your traffic.
You hear many opinions about paying for traffic and it may sound like not such a good idea. But, the payoff tells a different story. When you pay for your traffic, you are guaranteed of a consistent traffic flow to your site. Fortunately, you can set the amount you can afford to pay each day and the max amount you are willing to bid on a keyword. Basically, you will be charged for the number of hits a link gets when a visitor actually clicks on your ad, this is called pay per click. For some search engines, you will be charged with the number of times your ad shows up when a certain keyword or keyword phrase is searched.
It is imperative that you have good keyword content in your ad. There are many tools that aid you in using the right keyword for the right moment. All the money you spend in paying for your traffic will not be for naught. You will get an impressive boost in traffic which will also result to a boost in your sales. Paying for your traffic through sponsored ads, pay per click or any medium is a good idea and you will get more benefits then spending your time getting free traffic.
