If internet marketing success were the alphabet, email marketing, autoresponders, name squeeze pages, traffic generation, traffic analysis, shopping carts, support, web site design, flash and more would be the letters. So which would be the letter A?
Simple – It’s traffic!
You can have the best autoresponder service and follow up messages in the world but they will do you no good if you don’t have any traffic. You need a list in order to use an autoresponder for sending out your messages. And, you guessed right, you can’t build a list without traffic.
Is it affiliate marketing that you prefer because of its low maintenance model? Bear in mind that you have to send referrals to get your commissions. And, you guessed right again, you need traffic to be able to send referrals.
Any way you turn, you simply can’t do with traffic — And lots of it. Therefore, if you have to do only one thing everyday it is “Build traffic and lots of it!” Don’t ever lose sight of this fact.
If you have to spend $3,000 on your new marketing business, let the higher percentage go to traffic generation. When you start building massive traffic, you’ll make enough money to sort other things out. If you spend your on things other than traffic, you’ll find out you’ll have to look for more money somewhere to keep your business up – And, I guess you don’t want that.
Yes, a lot of books and courses are out there for you to buy. But if you’re new, buy books and enroll for courses that teach you how to generate massive traffic. Thereafter, you can go for the others. You start with letter “A” when reading the letters of the alphabet and TRAFFIC is the A in the ABC of internet marketing.
