PPC (Pay per click) advertising
Pay per click advertising is were you bid on keywords to do with your niche.
Providers of PPC are companies like Google and Bing along with many other search engine providers.
PPC advertising can be very expensive, this is due to the cost of certain keywords because of the competition in the market.
The good points of PPC advertising are the amount of traffic you can potentially get.
Google gets tens of millions of searches per day, these people are looking for solutions to their problems.
According to Wordstream.com, the following cost of keywords are;
Insurance = $54.91 per click
Loans = $44.28 per click
Mortgage = $47.12 per click

Social media advertising

Sponsored posts come up in a person’s newsfeed, and blend in very well to a person’s interests and hobbies.
SEO (Search engine optimization)
There is no substitute for doing SEO on your blog and website.
SEO helps your website pages get organic search traffic through Google and other search engines.
Keywords and also long tail keywords can be researched using keyword research tools like KWfinder.
You can also get an SEO company or professional to get your website to the top of search results.
A great SEO tip for writing blogs is this;
Make sure your blogs are at least 2000 words long, most blogs that rank on the first page of Google or at least 2000 words long.
Google likes good quality content that you can read easily and has plenty of information.
Writing your articles around a key phrase/keyword will improve your SEO score.
You will also need to use your key phrase in your heading for your post, and also your subheadings and headings.
Like I mentioned in my other post,make sure that your affiliate links are “nofollow” example
rel=”nofollow” after every affiliate link.
If you are trying to find keywords for your YouTube videos tubebuddy is definitely the way to go.
If you haven’t been building an email list then you need to start right now.
You should have a email autoresponder like AWeber with a series of automated emails building trust and rapport with your email list.
If you want to build your email list fast, you can install an opt-in form on a landing page on your website.
You can do this using AWeber by creating an optin form and copying the HTML code onto your landing page.
Once you have your landing page set up, you can then use solo ads to buy clicks for the kind of industries that you are promoting.
Don’t be fooled by cheap solo ad providers, the cheap solo ad providers are just not very good quality.
So by using a combination of the mentioned traffic methods, you can target for USA and UK customers with large expendable incomes.
It all depends on your budget and what you are aiming to achieve.
Are you aiming for brand awareness or visitors to your website and blog?
The choice is yours and only you can take action!
