As an online business owner it is imperative that you learn to market your online income opportunities by attracting targeted traffic to your website. Those internet marketers who have been working online for a number of years have mostly found what techniques work best, but if you are new to the online world you are probably still learning which methods work and which ones are a waste of time.

One thing that everybody knows though is that without targeted traffic you will not make any sales. No matter how good your website may be it does not help if no one knows it is there.

So once your website is set up, instead of wasting time trying to make it perfect you would do better to concentrate on generating targeted traffic. It may seem like an impossible task but it really is not that difficult if you know what you need to do.

Here are 3 methods you can use to get targeted traffic to your online income opportunities website.

1. SEO (search engine optimization)

This is still one of the best ways to get targeted traffic to your website and it is free. The way that this works is by optimizing your site for specific keywords and key phrases which will get your website ranked in the search engines. As your ranking improves more people will find you when they look for information and use the keywords that you have used to optimize your website. After optimizing you will need to add content to your site and the best way to do this is by ensuring that you offer the type of information that people are looking for.

There is a downside to using this form of traffic generation and that is, it will take time to get ranked and also requires some effort to achieve success. If you are not sure of how to do this there is always the option of outsourcing the task to an expert to guarantee better results.

2.  Article marketing is one of the simpler ways to drive traffic to your website but you need to decide what topics you intend writing about and do your due diligence to be sure that the topics you choose are what people are looking for.

As you write various information articles you can begin submitting them to article directories as this is where more people will find them and start learning about you and the opportunities that you can offer them. You cannot advertise your products directly in these articles as this is where you give them useful information, but there is the opportunity to tell them more about yourself and your business in the resource box which is at the foot of every article that you submit and you are usually allowed to add 1-2 links in here which will lead anyone interested in what you have to say back to your website.

If you are not sure about writing your own articles you can outsource this task to a ghost writer who will write them for you. There are many people who make a living online just writing for other people.

3.  Using social media sites has become a popular means of branding yourself and getting known online and there are numerous types of social media sites online. When you register for any of them such as Twitter or Facebook you will find that people will follow you and besides the fact that you can use it as a marketing tool you will find that you make a lot of new friends and it can be very enjoyable.

These are just 3 methods to use to generate targeted traffic to your online income opportunities website and there are many others as well. What I would suggest though is that you start off with one or two and become expert in those before you move on to others.
