Traffic building is such an important cornerstone of internet marketing that I think that even the big dogs make mistakes online with traffic – and are tempted to repeatedly spend their money on the wrong things online, especially when it comes to traffic.
So what are the last two myths about traffic?
You should buy lists – someone else has already done the work. This is one of the greatest lies – the important thing about a list is the relationship with you. If you buy a list, is there any relationship? No, or course not. This is one of the worst myths around – and although I have not fallen for it, I have fallen for mailing scams – I spend my good, hard earned money – and get nothing in return. The worst part is that we get so excited when we see a legitimate-looking sales page that really looks like it might be the answer to our traffic problems – and of course, it never is!
And for the #1, the number one myth:
Article marketing is only good for backlinks. That is crazy. I get as many as 30-40 new subscribers per day when I am actively writing and submitting articles like this one. That translates to around 100 very high quality visitors from writing articles just like this one. Article marketing is probably the highest form of traffic you can generate on the web. Article marketing is about the online thing I do right now to generate traffic – except of course my list – and I average around 400 unique visitors per day.
Article marketing works!
