Sales and traffic from Pins can occur long after the item is pinned.
50 percent of visits happen after 3.5 months, according to Piqora.
Each pin can drive up to 2 page visits and 6 page views.
The life of a pin is one week!
It is relatively easy to get traffic from Pinterest as long as you dedicate 10-15 minutes a day you should be able to increase your followers, pins and traffic to your website.
Here are some key tips for driving traffic from Pinterest.
Focus on Descriptions
Each pin has a description that you can use to tell the reader about what the pin is about and also what the picture they are seeing is about as well. A high engagement pin needs have a description that is helpful, detailed, interesting and actionable.
According to a recent study by PewReserachCenter, up to 17% of users visit Pinterest daily. Close to 9% of users visit Pinterest several times a day. 52% of users visit just once a week. By posting regularly you gain more coverage with your core audience.
Being a visual social media platform you must make your images attractive and eye catching. It’s better to use images that are more tall rather than wide.
Longer pins take up more room on a feed making it harder to pass.
Pins that have text in the image draw more attention and traffic back to your blog of website.
There are free image editing tools like PicMonkey and Canva that make it easy for anyone to add text in their images.
Pinterest isn’t going away anywhere, anytime soon. To learn more on how you can generate traffic back to your website then view the video below.
Most online marketers are aware of Google AdWords, Bing, Facebook advertising, LinkedIn advertising, solo ads and more. But have you heard about the merits of YouTube advertising?
If you are not familiar with video advertising it seems to be a platform solely for branding, but it’s much more than that. You can drive traffic to collect leads, sales and conversions with YouTube advertising.
YouTube traffic has limitless potential and if you build your channel correctly and optimise your videos it is relatively easy to get free traffic.
Low Cost Paid Traffic
What I love about YouTube paid traffic is it is still relatively low cost. I have gotten clicks for as low as $0.02 a click. It is not often that you can get traffic for as low as this. There are some great options for displaying your paid traffic. Video Discovery or Video Search and In-Display (where your video will pop in front of a video someone is about to watch).
Even better is you only get charged after your video is watched 30 seconds.
Not many marketers fully understand the capabilities of YouTube advertising, but if you are serious about building your business on this platform then you should be using targeting. You can target your videos based on demographics, interest and niche.
Like Facebook, YouTube lets you build retargeting audiences so you can retarget those visitors that have already watched your video.
Rank In Google
Once you get a handle on YouTube marketing you can start to rank in Google. It is easier said than done but it is possible to rank in google and get more traffic to your videos from the number one search platform.
When you use YouTube properly the clicks are cheap, the targeting can be more precise than Facebook and profit-ready videos are just a click away.
If you want to learn how to market on YouTube and maximise your return then you must check out this training from Justin Sardi. This is the best guide for YouTube traffic that I have ever seen. Check it out here.
When I first started out online marketing my goal was to make a full time income so I could work from home and spend more time with my daughters. The goal I set was to first make $4,000 a month.
I was wrong. I soon realised that I needed to think smaller. Smaller amounts of money in shorter amounts of time.
Most people tend to over think things, try to reinvent the wheel and that is why they fail.
I’m going to change your way of thinking, so you can see just how easy it is to make $100 a day.
The internet is a 24/7 business, so that means for you to make $100 a day you only actually need to make $4 per hour and that includes while you are sleeping.
So you are probably wondering what is the secret? The secret is patience and to persevere. Without these two you will give up, like the other 95% of people that start online marketing.
How To Make $100 A Day Online – Where Do You Start
If you were going to start a new job in a new industry you would need training.
The same goes for Online Marketing you have to train yourself so you understand how everything works and so you can decide what you are going to focus on to make $100 a day online.
If I could start all over again my advice would be don’t go crazy and buy every new training that comes out and promises you “instant commissions”. That is just not going to happen.
Invest in some training so you can learn the proper way to build $100 a day business online. This training doesn’t have to cost you an enormous amount of money but having the fundamentals and setting your business up correctly is going to be key.
Familiarise yourself with the following:
Affiliate Marketing (finding products to sell)
AutoResponder and email sequences.
Becoming and expert on the above will get you well on your way.
There are a few training programs I recommend:
Passion Blog Pro – This is the best value for money training I have seen in a long time with over 8 hours of over the shoulder video training and case studies. If you followed this training alone you will easily start making $100 a day. I have reviewed this training and implemented a lot of the strategies and they really work as you can see in the video below.
Video Ads Crash Course – When people are searching for an answer the two most popular places to look are Google and YouTube. This training is the latest in YouTube advertising and is a marketing niche in itself. Justin Sardi is the expert on YouTube advertising and this training is at a very special price for the next few days. Check it out here.
Lazy Profit Engine – Lazy Profit Engine has not been out for long and is a training that is based on just one way or one traffic source. It shows probably one of the cheapest and easiest way to set up some funnels and start making money. For the price of under $10 you should take a look at it. Click here.
Affiliate marketing is the easiest way to get started. You promote someones product, they see the sales page, order and you get a commission. This is the easiest way to get started and below are the networks I suggested to join to get started.
To learn more about each network just look them up on YouTube or you can find all the information in the Passion Blog Pro training.
When I say traffic, I don’t just mean any old traffic, I mean targeted traffic, people who are motivated and ready to buy can and will make you money. You can use programs and techniques such as Google Adwords, Bing, blogging, social media, article writing and linking to drive targeted traffic to your website. Google Adwords and Bing are resources offered by Google, YouTube and Bing in which you can pay for your site to be show when certain keywords are queried in their search engine.
Blogging is another great way to drive targeted traffic to your website. To get the most out of this technique the blog should be hosted on the same website as the sales page which links to your affiliate program. Once its setup all you have to do is fill your blog with good quality content.
I recommend writing your own content which specifically relates to your offers or products.
This could be a long winded article that will confuse you but if you just take action then you are well on your way to reaching $100 a day and from there $200, $500 and $1000 a day.
Paid traffic is the most common way of getting traffic online and yet some marketers are still scared of using.
Just like ANY paid traffic source, if you rush in without a plan, you’re just going to burn through your dollars and end up with nothing to show for it.
