Just about every marketer out there, especially when they first get online and try their hand at marketing, will look to buy leads or to buy traffic for their site.
It seems ridiculous that you have been writing on a blog for weeks and you still only get about 5 or 6 visitors a day to your site. I mean you’ve heard of bloggers getting tens of thousands of visitors to their site on a daily basis…what are you doing wrong?
To be honest with you, nothing is really “wrong.”
Building an audience for a blog or any other site can be a monumental and tedious task and so a lot of people will opt to outsource much of this work.
The question is, do sites like fiverr.com that offer traffic for a price really work?
I’ve used fiverr.com a number of times for different reasons and while you can purchase traffic to your site, I prefer to use fiverr a little differently.
Yes, I still use fiverr to promote my sites, but not in the manner that you might think.
Fiverr.com and Website Creation
The folks at fiverr that are offering jobs or “gigs” as they are referred to, will do a variety of things for you for $5 bucks.
You can upgrade many of these gigs with extras, which will also cost extra.
I recommend using fiverr for things like splash page creation, WordPress creation and coding and things along these lines. You can have image files designed that can be used to promote things on craigslist and just about any HTML coding that you need done can happen for a very low price.
As far as straight up traffic generation, I prefer to do things a little differently when I use fiverr.
First let me say this, I don’t believe that you are going to get a ton of “real” visits to your site, your videos, your article, etc. from the fine folks at fiverr.
So why use fiverr?
Because sometimes just getting views to a site is enough to push it over the edge when it comes to Google or some other search engine ranking you on page 1 and if you are trying to rank on the first page for many different key phrases then you are definitely going to want to make sure that you are on the first page for most of them!
What I recommend is this…
…create web 2.0 properties such as YouTube, blogger and squidoo accounts. You can even do this with article marketing sites.
Once you develop the site a bit with an article or a video, go to fiverr and promote that video with views and maybe some SEO work. Within a few days you should be ranking on the first page of Google and possibly even YouTube for your key phrases.
Of course, you want to make sure that the key phrases you are going for get a decent amount of traffic in the first place.
Once you are ranking….and if you have put your URL in the description or in the author’s resource box (for articles, of course) then you should start getting some traffic headed your way.
Yes, this is a very indirect way of generating traffic and can take some time, but it is effective and generally speaking those visitors that you do get coming to your main site are the ones that are targeted and ready to go!
Remember, you also get the link juice from your web 2.0 sites as well and this will help your main site increase it’s ranking value on the search engines.
