Building website traffic is a great thing. Why do you want to drive traffic to your website?

The main reason is to send potential client leads to a channel you own and control. Your website is 100% owned by you (unlike your social media channels).

However, before you do all the work to send traffic, you need to make sure you have a way of capturing it. That is where a lead magnet is most valuable (More on that in another blog)

If you have your lead magnet and you are ready to drive traffic, here a few organic and paid ways to do exactly that

  1. Share content on social media – social is an ideal traffic driver and most people have made purchases based off something they have seen on social media.
  2. Paid Search Ads. – Google AdWords is a top choice. You will apply pay per click or PPC to push traffic to your website using specific keyword searches.
