How to Get 1,000 Visitors to your Website for Free

One Month of DataYour website is where you turn Internet surfers, readers, and tire-kickers into new sales leads and customers for your small business. To get more leads and customers, you need to get more visitors to your website.

But paying for website traffic is expensive. The average cost of purchasing traffic from paid advertisements such as Google AdWords can be as high as $2.50 or more per visitor, according to published sources.

Small businesses are at a huge disadvantage with online advertising because they pay the same cost-per-website-visitor as the world’s largest corporations. Moreover, website visitors acquired from paid advertisements are proven to be less likely to turn into new customers for your business than website visitors acquired from other methods.

You must be asking yourself, there has to be a better way? Well, there is.

Why Content Marketing Works Better Than Paid Advertising

Interestingly enough, for many websites the home page gets only about 20 percent of all incoming website visits. This means that the majority of visitors to these websites come in through pages that are not the home page. These visitors find and visit pages that discuss products, services, problems and solutions, frequently asked questions, recent industry trends, and common issues.

This makes sense because website visitors who already know about your business — your existing customers — visit your website by typing in your URL and go right to your home page. New website visitors who don’t yet know about your business will instead find information located deeper within your website, information that helps solve their problems.

For instance, a prospective customer for a locksmith might go online and search for a phrase like “how soon after buying a house should I change the locks?” Prospective customers will find their way to the website of the local locksmith, who has an article that provides the most helpful explanation. Once they are there, if they like the information they read, they will probably submit a website form to request service or immediately dial the locksmith’s phone number.

Because website content helps website visitors — instead of interrupting them with advertisements — it is proven to be a more effective technique for convincing them to do business with you.

How to Get Your New Free Website Visitors

To attract more potential customers to your website, you need to turn your site into a helpful resource for the most common problems that face your prospective customers.

Brainstorm a quick list of common problems that your prospective customers are already asking you about. Write up short answers — 250 to 400 words — to each problem and turn each answer into a new page on your website. Link to these pages from a resources section on your site, or from relevant text already on existing site pages.

Creating new pages of helpful content on your website is like dropping additional fishing nets behind your fishing boat. The more nets you have out, the more fish — or website visitors — you can catch.

Determine How Many New Pages You Need to Create

Now let’s determine how many articles you need to write to get 1, 000 new visitors to your website over the next 90 days. The quickest way to do this is to determine how many visitors your existing website pages receive each month.

Log in to your website analytics tool where you can find details about your current website traffic. I’ve included details for Google Analytics below but you can follow the same process in just about any website analytics system.

Look at just a single month’s data by setting a custom date range from the first to last day of last month.
