Can I Get Free Traffic to My Website?
"Can I get free traffic to my website?" is a common question I hear. To get seen, you need to get traffic.
Ask nearly anyone who runs an online business what their biggest struggle is “more traffic.”
- You need traffic to build an email list.
- You need traffic to make sales.
- You need traffic to fill your coaching programs.
The big question is, where do you get all that traffic?
Of course, you could buy ads, but if you aren’t careful, you might just fill your list with less-than-ideal audience members and that will do nothing for your sales.
You could focus your time and energy on search engine optimization but unless you have years to build your business then SEO should not be your top choice.
Good thing you have other options. In fact, there are three good, free options to explore.

Want to really show off your expert status and bring traffic back to your site, too? The easiest way is to get on the interview circuit.
