Welcome! In this blog post I’m going to give you a quick guide about getting traffic, leads and sales for your business…
A while back I was brand new to online digital marketing and honestly was struggling to get ANY traffic to my website… let alone get any leads or sales
I found some useful info though which helped me to get some pretty good results and I’ll share it with you here..
So where to get traffic?
Social media platforms… It’s one of the best places to get traffic for your website, because when done correctly:
1) Traffic is free
2) It comes in daily without fail
3) The people visiting are mostly from the western world (this is where most online buyers are!!)
4) They are already pre qualified and interested in what you have to offer!
5) They very easily convert into warm & hot prospects
6) An easy low cost way to build an email marketing list in any niche
And that’s just the start…
Check out the video below where you will see proof that you can create a profitable business online just using free Twitter traffic…
>> Today’s Traffic Tip: Can You Build a Profitable Business Without Paid Advertising & ONLY Free Twitter Traffic? (Proof You CAN!!)
Another really good platform for getting traffic & leads for your business is YouTube..
A while back I started experimenting with a simple YouTube strategy to see if it was possible to get free (or at least low cost) traffic and leads for my business.
It was my only option as being flat broke I simply didn’t have a budget for advertising, neither did I have the knowledge.
I was an affiliate promoting someone else’s product and frankly just wanted to make money quickly..
By producing simple videos, uploading them to YouTube and making a few tweeks here and there I was able to generate not just a few hundred leads for my business…
But THOUSANDS of leads.. Over 14,000 actually!!
Here’s the screen shot from my stat counter
The 63,219 figure is the total number of unique clicks my videos have generated so far (if you paid for those clicks at say $0.70 each which is actually pretty darn cheap it would have cost you $44,253.40!!)
The next figure of 14,940 is the number of leads generated to date and the 23.63% is the overall current conversion rate…
In fact some videos are achieving insane conversion rates such as this one of 62% opt in rate… Ask any marketer and they will tell you that is an insanely high and excellent opt in rate!
Pretty neat… right?
And from those leads I’ve earned tens of thousands of dollars in commissions just promoting other peoples products
In fact these methods are working so well that I created an entire course dedicated to showing you step by step how to implement these exact strategies.
I went a step further though…
One of the problems you might encounter being an affiliate and promoting other people products is that when you first get started you don’t get the results you expect..
This happened to me… In fact I was struggling to make any money at all
I was getting very few leads and no sales
Then I learned that there’s something that affiliate marketing companies don’t always tell you..
And that is..
That most of their affiliates ALL use the same marketing material that the company gives them
The same standard capture/squeeze/opt-in pages… The same blog posts… The same videos… The same emails to send to prospects… etc
So you quickly see that there is a slight problem…
You will probably be competing with lots of other affiliates who are all using the exact same webpages and content as you…
Now whilst this is an easy way for a newbie to get started… You’ll get so much better results if you learn to be UNIQUE in the market place and learn how to easily create your own marketing pages and content…
It’s especially important if you are paying for traffic because you must maximize your results for the best return on investment and of course platforms like Google & Facebook are not going to tolerate lots of ads & posts going to webpages that all have the same content… that would be a terrible experience for their users
As soon as I learned how to be unique my results sky rocketed..
It all starts by knowing exactly who your perfect customer is…
This is absolutely critical because if you are trying to market to everyone, your message won’t be specific enough and you’ll reduce your results
By using the simple ‘Define Your Perfect Customer’ formula you will know precisely how to attract the right visitors and leads to your online business
Next you need to understand the ‘Customer Value Journey’ and how to create or source appropriate content to smoothly move your prospect to a decision to buy from you and become a customer..
This is a proven systematic way of approaching your digital marketing guaranteed to ensure maximum profit…
It’s also important that you understand that depending on where your prospect is on the value journey a different marketing approach is required
Because the ultimate aim is of course that they become your CUSTOMER
It’s often ineffective to directly offer a brand new prospect who has just found you something to buy…
(think dating… you don’t ask for marriage on the first date.. do you??)
You need to ‘warm up’ your prospects first and there is an extremely effective way you can do this which we’ll cover in a minute…
When it comes to lead generation you can massively increase your numbers simply by learning how to create your own lead capture pages (also known as squeeze/landing/opt-in pages)
By using my own simple lead capture pages I’ve so far generated 21,739 leads into that particular system… and that’s just one part of my business!
When you can do this and understand the psychology behind creating high converting pages you will never need to worry about the competition… you will BE the competition
You can go a step further than that though..
Not only can you create your own unique landing pages but you can also create your own ‘Lead Magnets’
These are the ultimate lead generation tools and are also used for ‘pre framing’ which will warm up your prospect and prepare them to make a purchase from you
The process looks something like this:
By following this process you can create some kick ass lead magnets that your competitors won’t have (even if they are affiliates of the same company as you)
Plus you will accelerate your prospect along the customer value journey so much quicker whilst delivering value..
Your prospect will quickly be sold on YOU and much more likely to become your customer
Buying online is very much affected by TRUST and by delivering value up front more trust is developed which means more sales
The same applies with lead generation..
Using a blog you can dramatically increase the number of leads you can generate
I call this the “Perpetual Lead Machine”
Using specially crafted blog posts and installing some simple plugins you can convert a normal blog into a lead generating machine
People will love it because you will be giving value and it will work for you 24/7 bringing you already warmed up leads eager to find out more about your business & products..
This is a small sample of the powerful information that you’ll have access to in the Daily Traffic Machine membership site…
At Daily Traffic Machine we don’t just teach you how to get traffic though…
We teach you everything you need to know BEFORE you get traffic and everything you need to know AFTER you’re getting traffic!
Because the truth is that getting traffic is easy… You can just order it from someone that specializes in traffic generation or run ads with one of the big platforms (think Google, Facebook, Youtube)
But what is the point if you don’t know how to convert that traffic to leads and sales?
You’d just go bankrupt..
It’s also no good just sending traffic to the website your company gave you…
Oh no my fellow (or future) marketer…
We need to be strategic to build our empire and the truth is…
If you want to create a reliable income online from the comfort of your home then there are some things you need to know first…
The first is… are you making the big, Hugh, massive mistake that most people are making when trying to make it work with affiliate online marketing?
If you are not making money then you most likely are… and it is ruining your chances of success
I was making the same mistake when I got stated over a decade ago.. But I figured it out…
The problem is that when you promote someone else’s product they don’t always teach you to line YOUR pockets but rather their own..
This is a big problem in the affiliate marketing/home business industry… a lack of reliable information that actually teaches you how to build YOUR business and income..

You packed hugh value in this post James! There’s better information here than on most paid platforms thank you for sharing!
Thank you Tanya, I am glad it helped!
This makes me want to look into YouTube – thank you for sharing the honest facts about what you did to succeed!
Glad it helped… Youtube is a great source of traffic & leads
James, thank you for this informative article!
Thank you for the great article James, I will start using this idea in my online business as well! There has been an amazing amount of growth in the affiliate/online marketing space over the last five years, and I think it’s a great way for people to build their business or even extra income. I’d love to get your thoughts on my site http://www.prally.co and to hear whether you think our market reports are helpful in identifying companies with quality affiliate programs that have potentially very low competition.
Thanks for the great tips! I couldn’t agree more, especially with the fact that everything starts with knowing exactly who your ideal customer is. Too many small business owners claim they can work with anyone and they don’t realize how much harder it is to try to target “everyone” than it is to target a specific audience with a specific set of needs.
Excellent useful info thank you James
Nice, just found you today. Great Article. Definitely agree that in today’s market you have to build an actual relationship before selling. If folks trust us, they’ll buy from us. No different than real life. Keep it up!
Thanks for valuable information. For starters getting traffic can be very struggling. People try lots of different ways. Have to try some new techniques.
