Website Traffic – Why Social Media Sites Are Not Great Places to Get New Visitors
When it comes to getting visitors to your site a lot of people have started to focus their efforts on getting traffic from social media networks and Web 2.0 sites. In this article I want Social Media Visitors to show you exactly why this is a bad idea and what to do instead.
Why This Method Has Become So Popular.
You have to realize that getting Web 2.0 traffic is a very popular thing now because everyone is doing it. And when everyone does something online, everyone else wants to do it do.
No one wants to miss the party when it comes to getting more visitors to your site.
And the reality is that people who have been struggling with the other visitors sources that are more proven will often abandon those in favor of trying to get visitors using these new strategies because they think it will be easier.
The problem is that what you see is not always reality! Just because people show you screenshots of traffic & tell you that they have 5000 friends on Facebook does not mean it is making them money.
Here Is Why You Need To Avoid Social Media Networks If You Want To Get More Website Visitors:
#1 – They are not automated. You have to realize that the more you do on Web 2.0 sites, the more you have to keep doing. So it becomes a monster after a while because it is personality based and you have to keep doing it to keep up with what you have done.
#2 – The conversion rates are very bad. You need to understand that because there are so many other things pulling for people’s attention on these sites that getting them to take action on your offer is almost impossible.
When I get visitors to my site using traditional methods I can usually get about 1% – 2% of the new visitors to buy from my site! When it comes to social media visitors, that number usually drops to one sale for every 3,000 visitors. Not only that but many other marketers have seen the same thing happen.
#3 – Most of the people are not interested in what you are selling! The people who come to these sites are looking for friends, network with people & waste time so they don’t have to work.
