The Genuine ScLoHo aka Scott Howard

2 Keys to Building Website Traffic

January 6, 2012 ScLoHo's Web World 0

I’m going to keep this pretty basic.

This is stuff that I originally learned  before I joined Cirrus ABS last year.

  1. Content, Content Content
  2. Promote, Promote, Promote

Now there really are a whole bunch of other things you need to consider when you are wanting a successful website, and I’d be glad to talk to you about them.  Just contact me.

But for now, I’m going to share something from my own experience.

I launched this website 3 months ago after about 3 months of planning and preparation.

I redesigned the layout last week.

Before I had this website, I had 5 active blogs.

The most popular, Collective Wisdom has nearly 6,000 articles on it that I posted from 2004 thru October 3, 2011.

It still gets between 300 and 500 visits a week.

Why?  All the content about advertising, sales and marketing that I posted over the years.

Now this website, http://www.scotthoward.me/ is getting more weekly visits.

What helped it grow so quickly, considering I have no products or services for people to buy on this site?

All the promotion I do on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Content and Promotion.

More in the weeks ahead..
