In this post, you’ll discover exactly how creating and selling great products is a traffic generation strategy in itself (when it’s done right). Read on to learn what steps you can take, to drive more traffic to your products and get more customers.

Forget Traffic – Do This Instead

Traffic is overrated.

There, I said it. Everyone worries about traffic and tries to get more of it. I did the same, when I was starting out.

Over the past few years, I have learnt about a skill that is much more valuable than traffic generation and focusing on this skill will get your business off the ground much more quickly.

Watch the video below to see what I mean:

Contest Case Study, Part 1

A few days ago, I launched my first “proper” online contest.

I had done a couple of very simple contests before, where I would compile entrants manually and pick winners via random numbers, but this was the first time I created a contest using a dedicated software to do so and with more bells and whistles I’d ever been able to add before.

In this post, I’ll show you all the results I got from running the contest and break down all the lessons I’ve learned from it. Be warned, though: what you’ll read below is probably not what you’re expecting…

The New Traffic Paradigm

For small businesses and bootstrap marketers, it’s easy to feel persecuted by Google. From banning AdWords and AdSense accounts to Panda updates and from blocking keyword referral data (unless you’re a paying AdWords customer) to an increasing big-brand bias in the search results, it seems like Google is out to get small websites and small businesses.

That might not be literally true, but there’s no doubt that Google’s main goal is to make more money for Google. Being nice to small businesses doesn’t enter the equation for any decisions they make. And that makes relying on them too much a bad idea.

What then, are small businesses and individual SEOs to do? Is there a way to break out of the cycle of constantly trying to adopt to Google’s latest change, only to get smacked down by the next one?

There is. And it’s called the New Traffic Paradigm.
