Headlines are crucial.

You may have great content, but if your headline is boring, people might scroll right past your post.

Do you have trouble nailing down a great headline?

Here is a great site that can help!

Don't Skip SEO.

Don't be lazy when it comes to SEO.

  • Meta descriptions
  • Alt-text
  • Internal links
  • Long tail keywords
  • URLs
These are all crucial areas that when optimized correctly will give your website or post a better chance of being found in search engines.

Email Marketing Is Not Out Of Date.

As long as you aren't bombarding people with hundreds of emails, email marketing is still a great way to increase traffic to your site!

There are great email marketing tools out there that make it easy to schedule emails.

Making your job easier!

Make Your Site Fast and Accessible.

Your site should be accessible on any device.

If your site is not mobile-friendly, then it is more likely the viewer will go to another site rather than trying to zoom in and scroll all over the place.

You can use Google's new Mobile-Friendly Test to see how your site looks to visitors on mobile devices along with how fast your site loads.

Make sure your site has all the right plugins and is technically optimized in the best way possible.

The faster the better. Google uses speed when ranking your site in Google Search.

If your site takes too long to respond you will drive traffic away from your site.

There you have it!

Follow these simple tips and you will begin to see an increase in traffic to your website!
