Nothing is Better Than a Free Lunch….Except for FREE TRAFFIC

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Affiliate Marketing | Posted on 19-05-2009

The majority of us rely on PPC, Social Media & Media Buying for our traffic.  All of these traffic sources are great and can provide huge volume and profit for our businesses.  They also all have an inherent risk as they are paid sources of traffic.  Why do so few utilize free traffic sources to their advantage?  Probably because these sources don’t appear to be super valuable but they can be if done right.

I’ve been spending some time learning the ins-and-outs of different free traffic sources and discovering ways to leverage this traffic to my advantage.  Sites like Craigslist, Twitter, Facebook etc. can be HUGE sources of free traffic that you shouldn’t be overlooking.  Although the volume and results may not come as fast as just paying for your traffic, there is a certain high to knowing that the few hundred/thousand dollars you made yesterday came with NO COST ATTACHED!

Spend a couple of hours this week on free traffic sources.  The results may surprise you.

  1. You could also say that about SEO. I mean we (affiliate marketers) know what keywords convert yet hardly any of us bother with it.

    Personally I don’t have the patience or the attitude for free stuff lol.

    I get more satisfaction out of putting some cash monies on the line and making it work. Certainly gives me a lot more motivation to succeed.

  2. I’m not sure I 100% agree that free traffic is necessarily free. That is, as a company / individual spends time setting up the ad / copy / content to achieve said traffic, isn’t their time worth something?

  3. @Evolved – You are 100% correct and I meant to mention this in the post. What I mean by free traffic is traffic that is free and where the campaigns can be automated. :)

  4. I usually stick by the time = money ordeal, but that usually keeps me from exploring new things.. However, automation tools makes this much better :)
