It’s easy to do SEO when you got a old site that already has a ton of back links. It’s easy to spend money on paid advertising when you’re already rich and you’re an established company. But what happens when you’re a new website? How can you get that traffic? Today I’m going to break down the fastest ways to bring traffic to a brand new site.

Traffic Tip #1: Partner Up!

The first method I have for you is to partner with other content creators. Have you thought about co-hosting blog content?

So all the things where I’ll go and I’ll create content with other people and we’ll do it on a similar topic.

So for example, we may do a joint webinar, joint podcast. We may even do roundup posts. We may even do interviews with other people.

By partnering with other content creators, you’ll find that they’ll Promote the content and you’ll promote the content as well.

It doesn’t hurt to ask

But you may be like, Neil, I don’t have any traffic to my site. That’s okay. That’s why I also gave you options to interview people and do roundup posts, because people are always flattered to be interviewed.

People are always flattered to be included in a roundup post.

And you know what, when you include X person in these posts, what are they going to do when it gets published?

They’re going to share it. When they share it on their favorite social site, what happens, you get more traffic.

And yeah, you may find that all of the experts may not share the content, but if you email asking them to, a large portion will.

I’m talking about 30%, 40% plus. I found that when people interview me and they ask me to share the content, almost always I share it.

Traffic Tip #2: Giveaways, Contests, or Promotions.

Look, reach out to other websites in your niche, offer them something that’s valuable to their audience, and They’ll spread the word. When they do, you’ll get extra traffic.

Giveaways have been so effective. You guys are all familiar With the guy named Tai Lopez.

Here in my garage is this Lamborghini, right?

He’s famous or known for that video as well as a lot of other things. What does Tai do that’s Extremely effective and smart?

He does a ton of giveaways. He’s given away money, he’s given away cars, he’s given away shoes, he gives away whatever he wants to give away that he can think of.

And it’s super effective, because when you do giveaways, people love it, they spread the word, you get a ton of traffic, you get a ton of followers, a ton of engagement, and you can keep leveraging that audience to keep coming back.

Traffic Tip #3: Push Notifications.

It’s the simplest way to keep getting more and more traffic.

Just think of it this way. Look, someone comes to your site, are they going to come back? Chances are no.

If you’re not sure about this, check out Google Analytics. There’s a cohort report in there, it shows you how often people come back. You’re lucky if three months down the road even 1% of your audience comes back.

By doing those push notifications with one click, someone’s subscribed to your site, they don’t have to put in an email or anything, they don’t have to give you any of their personal information, and then any time you release more content, any new features, promotions, you can message them all out and quickly get them back to your site.

And you can use Subscribers to do this,

Traffic Tip #4: Paid Ads

And you may not have a big budget, that’s okay.

Did you know in many cases Google AdWords will give you $50 or $100 in free adspend?

Don’t believe me, google for it. You’ll find a ton of offers and coupons like that. You can use it to get started, it’ll give you a quick boost in traffic.

Yes, those visitors may not convert into customers because you may not have enough time to run the optimal campaigns, but it’s a great start.

Just try that out, you’ll get a quick boost of traffic.

And you know what? If you get some sales, you can keep doing more and more of it over time.

  1. I have a new website I'm still in the middle of setting up. I tried this once before but I never got any traffic. Now I know why. I'll be back to post more about the results of some of the strategies you gave. Thank you!

  2. Gracias por todo, siempre subes contenido grandioso, no dejo de seguirte desde que conocí acerca de ti. Recién empecé con mi primer proyecto web y pues estoy de a poco poniendo en práctica todo lo que enseñas. Ubersuggest es excelente. Lo recomiendo. Saludos desde el pequeño país Ecuador. Se ve que eres un hombre honesto y muy inteligente. Sigue adelante.

  3. Got my new website next week but it’s art etc. Can’t do a blog though ? interviews don’t fit either

  4. Hello Neil I am from India, I am a regular follower of your channel. I have a health and fitness website too. It's been months but still, I have no traffic. Please help me out.

  5. Sir thanks for sharing amazing knowledge. Could you tell me whether it would be good to create a blog in dot net technology? Becoz we don't have yoast plugin for seo in dot net so then which plugin I can use. I wish to start my blog so please tell me should I go for WordPress or dot net website. I am asking this because I have a friend who can create website in dot net for me absolutely free. Please answer.

  6. Great tips Neil! Actually the blog commenting thing was one of my major ways I got customers way back in 2011 when I started that site then. I found a really "Clever" way to leave a blog comment is like name + name of blog, or name + credibility, or name + brand name. So like Justin A. Hammonds | Visionary Network Marketer or Justin A. Hammonds | $25k Earner. I loved that blog commenting strategy so much I actually have my own blog comment software now lol. That tip (although you did give a lot of credibility to it) is by FAR the most profitable one you made. Again great tips Neil, thanks. :)???

  7. Sir any free course plz launch blogs, affiliate and other best information sir personally I m not afford high pay out learning courses but I M mostly try Mobile use and try to start affiliate and blog free plz sir request for u creat a best free course me

  8. Neil, excellent content ? built a few sites 10 years ago. Took them down in March bc COVID-19, wasn’t interested in mining new clients. Now ready to relaunch, your info gives me renewed passion and confidence

  9. 1. Partner with other content creators – cohosting on a similar topic – interview and promote a post, asked them to share the content 30-40% will
    2. Giveaways-something valuable and collect e-mails.
    3. Push notifications.
    4. Payouts
    5. Guest posting – giving feedback to a blogger you like – eventually they MAY recommend you when you are writing for them
    6. Comment on other blogs – in detail and something useful, leave your URL.

  10. Hello sir i have a blogspot website and have posted almost 44 to 45 posts and have over all traffic of around 3200 till now. So I wanted to know that is this amount of traffic normal for a new blogger on subdomain or less than normal?

  11. Hello Sir! I have started drop shipping, the ads were costly in USA, so i switched to Australia, I'm having problem which types of ads would be best at the start to generate sales. Please assist me is it the right country for business and what strategy should i follow?

  12. Good tips Neil. I would recommend you to talk about in some future videos about 200 ranking factors that Google wants from a website owner (or maybe you already did). Anyway, I followed RankMath SEO optimization tips and I got 10 clicks in a month. The site was finished beginning of November. I am sure there are things to be improved, and your tips fit well into that. Thanks!

  13. Hey man,tnx it was helpful. I need your help. I am struggling to put a email form to get people's emails. I use webador website builder. Can you guide me how i can do this?

  14. Mate, your first tip, podcasts, interviews, buddy, not everyone knows these kind of people, someone might have a hair salon and wants to promote it, wtf is a podcast or interviewing someone going to do, they just want to grow the website and want tips! That isn't very useful to everyone

  15. Great video! It taught me a lot. Watched it multiple times and noted major important points from it. Neil, I have a question. I am an agricultural consultant and public speaker here in Nigeria looking at taking my brand online to generate money through a website and digital products. I don't much about how to do this as I am still learning about digital marketing and I would be glad if you put me through.

    I know this isn't a conference where I can ask you questions such as this. But I would be really glad if you could help me out.

  16. Time and time again I have used Neil's guidance to learn and navigate the world of digital. I first watched this video a few weeks ago and something just clicked. We're now getting a nice uptick in traffic as a direct result of one of the ideas I got from this Video. Just re-watched the Video because its that good !

  17. I think you present very well Neil.

    Quite different to me – I always use the acronym SEE, (smile, eye contact, excitement).

    I would say your body language conveys humble intelligence.

    Great work, thanks for the tips ??

  18. I recently started my new website and your valuable information and methods are keeping my spirits up. Thank you for these videos as they are very helpful for rookies like me.

  19. I realised I do alot of these things on my social media already how would this convert to income on a website though. Is it a case of traffic may make sales or more getting paid per click by companies such as AdSense?

  20. Can I partner with you? Of course, not, right! You always partner with big creators, never think of making small as big by partnering with those fellows 🙁
