Website Traffic: The Traffic Generation Mindset

The Best Mindset to Approach Traffic Generation

The mindset that you approach traffic generation with is important. A lot of marketers tend to bounce between traffic strategies. For example, they might decide to shoot a few YouTube videos. Then start a blog. Perhaps they’ll dabble in AdWords, FB ads, Pinterest Ads, TikTok ads... Then, when nothing works, they go looking for other strategies.

The truth is most traffic strategies take time to build up. For instance, if you start a blog, you shouldn’t expect to get much traffic at all for the first 3-6 months. If you’re starting AdWords, you shouldn’t expect your campaigns to be profitable for several weeks, as you test ads and keywords. Consistency is the secret to all traffic generation techniques.

Try to pick just 1 to 3 strategies to focus on. Work on these strategies until you can genuinely determine whether or not they are working. If they aren’t, then consider moving on to other strategies. Consistency and execution is often more important than the strategy itself.
