All traffic is not created equal. I’ll show you how to tap into the most profitable traffic sources out there.
There are two types of traffic sources: Cold traffic and warm traffic.
Cold traffic that doesn’t know anything about you. It’s very passive. Warm traffic knows something about you, or at least about your offer. Warm traffic is actively searching for solutions to their problems. We’ll be talking about your most valuable cold traffic source and your most valuable warm traffic source.
Most Valuable Cold Traffic Source: Search Engine
This is your overall most valuable traffic source, and a good entry point into affiliate marketing. Here, someone uses a search engine and searches for specific keywords. To get this traffic, you target those keywords. With most cold traffic, you have to get a lot of traffic to make a little bit of money. But with search engine traffic, you get a little bit of traffic and you can make a lot of money.
This works with other forms of cold traffic too. But first, if you want to build a business from the ground up, you do it with search engine traffic. Focus on people who are actively looking for what you have to offer. They want to buy what you have right now.
Most Valuable Warm Traffic Source: Email
The second most important traffic is email traffic. Here, you email people who already know who you are and already want your information. To do this, you need to build a relationship with your market. The more bonding you do with your following, the more valuable every click will be. Your market will know you anticipate good content from you. When you send out an email they’ll click on it, and your email traffic will be worth a lot of money.
If you don’t have a relationship with your market, they won’t want to click on your emails, and they won’t care. So you have to make them care. There’s a different mindset between people casually browsing and people actively searching. If you can get inside the mindset of why people do what they do, you can be successful.
One More Valuable Cold / Warm Traffic Source: Social Media
Social media can be a very profitable traffic source. Sometimes the traffic is cold, and sometimes it’s warm. Social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc.) can be examples of cold traffic sources. People use these platforms for different things, but they might not actively be looking for your types of information. When people on social media are mostly looking at pictures and posting content of their own, they’re not searching for your products.
Once people on social media know who you are as an advertiser, then the traffic is warm traffic. Users actively search for your information. Once you get your traffic from different sources, then you can direct your traffic to your own social media platforms. Using paid traffic and email traffic for this can boost your social media following.
So when you’re discerning what types of traffic to go after, ask yourself this question: Are your visitors ready and able to take action? If the answer is yet, then get going.
