Let’s say that you’ve spent months building a super nice and user friendly website. You’re following all the rules by the book. You’ve also already done all the back breaking SEO and link building work but you still just can’t get any visitors to come to your site. First and foremost, you should consider that your rise to fame will not happen overnight. It takes time to build trust and sound relationships. It could also be that it’s time to ask yourself, “What’s so special about you?”
What does your site really offer to the world?
I mean people go to Walmart because the company did an excellent job of building their brand and because they know that they are going to save money on their shopping.
Steve Pavlina, a genius when it comes to personal development, gets upwards near 47,000 visits a day to his website because he’s worked his butt off to get to that point and because he gives people something they want. He offers them help in their own day to day lives.
Another great example would be a site like Facebook. They get millions of daily visitors because they allow people to connect with friends and associates whom they haven’t seen or heard from in years.
If you want people to visit your website then you should be giving them a reason to visit. Maybe you give them a joke a day to help them laugh during the tough times or possibly just offer some free advice on whatever your specialty is. Let your visitors know what’s so special about you!
I don’t want to sound like the world’s expert on Psychology because I’m not even close. I do, however, know that when I visit a website it’s generally because that website has something I want. Sometimes I’m looking to buy something and other times I’m just looking for advice. Either way, the sites that are most helpful and friendly to me are the ones that I bookmark and keep going back for more!
Even with all of today’s modern technology such as home computers, ecommerce sites, blogging, social networking and forums, when it comes right down to it people still want that neighborly type atmosphere. I’m betting that if you show your visitors what is truly special about you and let them know that you’re really there to help, your website traffic will increase heavily.
