  1. Thanks for this article. I’m fairly new to affiliate marketing, I have only been at it for over a year and I’ve learned plenty. I’m doing blogging, social media and just recently started doing videos. I didn’t know about the other ways to get more visitors. I will start implementing them soon. Those are great ideas.

    1. Hello Reyhana
      You have been doing affiliate marketing for a year so you should have a pretty good idea what works and what doesn’t work.
      So all you really have to do is rinse and repeat the methods that work and keep doing it.
      As for video marketing.
      It certainly is the flavour of the month and has been for some time now.
      Learn as much as you can about creating good well informed videos.
      Give the viewers something for nothing.
      It doesn’t pay you to give the hard sell in videos or any other kind of marketing for that matter.
      people will keep coming back to watch videos they learned something from or got something for nothing.
      They will start to follow you and come to see what your next video will be about.
      Connecting with your viewers is what its all about Reyhana.
      When you have that connection then you can build up trust between you and your audience.
      I wish you much success.
      Warmest wishes for that success.

  2. Great article Robert.

    The points you listed above are definitely good ways to increase one’s website traffic.

    Though I am implementing a couple of the above mentioned, I am yet to try out article directories and guest blogging, which is next on my line of action.

    If you don’t mind my asking, do you have any suggestion of directory one can possibly try out?

    Awaiting your response..

      I do my best to give as much information as I possible can and use what I believe are the best infographcis for further information.
      Its also my habit to include links to further information either within my own site or to good authority sites such as Wikipaedia.

      I also realize that many of the readers of my articles wont be as informed as i am and therefore I write in such a way as to make my articles readable and understandable for different levels of comprehension.
      So far, so good as they say because people keep coming back.
