7 Easy Tactics To Get More Eyes on Your Storefront: Let's Boost Your Website Traffic Starting Now!


Your website is your online digital presence. It's a gateway to potential customers, clients, and various opportunities. Having an online presence allows you to share information with your visitors about products or services, that they can then purchase via an online transaction. On your website you share a range of information about your brand, your company, and possibly other information relative to your industry. However, if there are no eyes on your website, if no one is looking at it, it will not be of much use to you. In this comprehensive guide, we'll unveil seven tactics that will increase your website traffic, ensuring your online presence thrives. 

Optimize Your Website for SEO and Get More Website Traffic

Optimize Your Website for Search Engines (SEO)

SEO lies at the heart of increasing your website visibility on search engines. To make it best work for you choose relevant keywords, optimize meta tags and descriptions, and increase your backlinks (aka inbound links) from credible, trustworthy websites. 

Tools like SemRush, Ahrefs, and Google Trends are used to research keywords that align with your niche to attract the right audience for your industry. Even sites like Pinterest, TikTok, and Esty are used for keyword research for both product based and service based businesses. Producing valuable and engaging content that incorporates your chosen keywords act as a magnet to attract the visitors interested in what you're offering.  

Crafting compelling meta titles and descriptions that entice users to click through to your website will ensure that your target audience can quickly identify exactly what you are offering. Meta titles and descriptions help search engines understand the content on a specific web page. This is all the bits of HTML code you see in the header of a specific web page. When a search is run on a search engine, the title of the page and a description are usually displayed in the search results.  

Increase Your Backlinks

To further increase your reach of new audiences, collaborate with influencers and authoritative websites to build reliable and trustworthy backlinks. Backlinks are the links on other websites that lead visitors back to your website. The more high quality backlinks, the more credible search engines find your website. High credibility means ranking higher in online search results. To start with the basics, register your company on sites like Yelp and NextDoor.   

engage with your audience often on social media and boost your sales

Social Media Marketing & Engagement

Social Media Platforms are powerful marketing tools. They can be used to drive traffic to your website and as a means to directly communicate with them. As a result of using social media marketing, you increase your brand awareness, share value and insights. This marketing strategy is also used to engage with your target audience by way of educating, entertaining, and promoting; ultimately leading to sales.

If you are unsure of where to find your target audience, what they like, what their pain points are, or what their interest are, go back to your Marketing Plan and include the use of all social media channels. Leveraging multiple platforms enables you to "find your people" and hopefully keep them. Once you figure out which marketing channels work best for your company and attract the most website visitors, you can revise your Marking Plan to design content for those specific platforms.

Creating eye-catching graphics, images, and videos are the starting point for sharing content on social media. However, even if you have a great message to deliver, no one will hear you if you aren't speaking loud enough. It is important to stand out and above the crowd. Be creative. Be authentic. Be transparent. Give a message of value. Create compelling visuals that will peak interest and encourage engagement. You want your audience to share your content with others, without hesitation. If you're not interested in creating your own content, you can hire someone at a low cost to create content for you. 

As you share content on social media, think of fostering meaningful interactions by engaging with your audience. Respond to their comments, messages, and mentions in a timely fashion and with sincerity and appreciation. This lets your followers know that you hear them and are listening. It shows that you are active in your business and that you care about your audience. 

Email Marketing: Build an email list and send out email campaigns regularly

Email Marketing

While many may underestimate the benefits of using Email Marketing and though some may even consider it outdated, it is still a great marketing strategy to drive more traffic to your website. Building an email list goes a long way, though it may take some time to establish. When you have email subscribers, it's less challenging to capture your audience because with email subscribers you already know that they are interested in what you have to offer.

An easy way to build an email list would be to encourage your website visitors to subscribe to your newsletter for regular updates and exclusive content. By delivering valuable content and promotions, in engaging newsletters, directly to your subscribers' inboxes, you may entice them to pay you a visit. Your email content should be tailored to your subscribers preferences and behaviors. This allows for a more personalized approach and enhances engagement.  

Content Marketing involves creating, publishing, and distributing digital material online

Content Marketing

Leveraging content effectively will drive significant traffic to your website. Content Marketing is generally focused on creating, publishing, and distributing digital material, online, to attract and engage a specific audience. This material is most commonly created in the form(s) of text, video, audio, and or images and then shared online. Content Marketing is designed to peak interest in a product or service. It is not directly focused on promoting your brand. 

Sharing informative, entertaining, and or educational content on a Blog, Email, or on Social Media are great examples of Content Marketing. If you create high-quality informative, educational, and or entertaining content that encourages sharing on the various social media platforms, you will have even greater odds at organically expanding your reach. 

Paid Advertising 

When used strategically, paid advertising on social media platforms like Facebook or tools like Google AdWords can provide an immediate boost in website traffic. You can run targeted ads that appear at the top of Google search results to reach users actively searching for relevant keywords. Facebook offers extensive targeting options to reach audiences of specific demographics and interests. Promoting your content on other websites is one tactic for driving traffic back to your website.
