There is no single best way to drive traffic to your website. It takes a mix of creativity, resourcefulness, and diligence to attract the right crowd. Plus, once you draw traffic, you need to have a system in place to engage your new visitors and turn them into repeat visitors, prospects, leads, customers, and advocates.
I'm a first-timer, what's the deal here?
Five years ago, I began looking for tools and tips to help make my entrepreneurial dreams come true.
I spent countless hours researching, signing up for free trials, discovering more about what I actually needed, and repeating that process.
Since then, I've co-founded two tech businesses, worked with hundreds of small businesses, and learned a lot of big lessons, including:
- Relationships come first.
- Why you need to be careful to build a business, not a job.
- Systems are integral to scalability.
- The perfect tools don't exist, but great tools make life much easier.
My goal here is to share what I've learned to help you grow at your own pace. If you just need to know what hosting provider or marketing automation software is best for your needs, awesome. If you want little-known tips on hacking Google+ for SEO value or proven strategy for effective inbound marketing campaigns, you'll find that as well.
Thanks for being here, and I always welcome your feedback!
