Imagine that you finally hit that sweet spot where your content goes viral and millions of new website visitors end up flooding your website. While the idea of having so much traffic (that could convert into millions of sales) may be an Internet marketer's fantasy, the reality of such an event could essentially bring the entire website down in a dramatic collapse due to technical weaknesses. To attract and manage a large amount of traffic, you need to implement testing to weed out anything that might keep you from scoring big when you do finally get a viral campaign to take off.
How to Test Your Website before the Big Event
Your site's ability to handle large amounts of traffic is dependent on your hosting package as well as the amount of traffic you estimate will come to your door. However, if your site is only currently attracting a trickle of traffic, then how do you know you will be ready when you finally become exceedingly popular? To make sure that your...
What is the one time you really do want to get into a sticky situation? When getting website traffic to stick around your website longer. A core performance indicator for website traffic is how much time each visitor stays on your website after they first arrive. This indicator is referred to as a web page's stickiness factor. The more time people stay on your site or a particular page, the more chances you have of creating an authentic relationship to your visitors and, eventually, converting them into paying customers. However, how does one go about building in sticky pages into your average website? It's not as hard as you might think: Include great content, provide an innovative solution, or make sure your content is updated frequently with new "website only" offers and specials.
Blogs are a Great Way to Add Quality Content Frequently
Blogs are really sticky areas of a website, particularly if they provide quality content that helps your audience...
When you buy traffic from us, we want to make sure that you get the best results possible. It’s important to note though, that success doesn’t just hinge on the stuff that you do, it also depends on the things that you don’t.
Here are 3 examples of things that you must avoid when buying traffic using our system:
Don’t buy traffic without setting your goals
Before even thinking about setting up a campaign, you first have to determine why you’re doing it. Are you buying traffic for branding purposes or do you want to zero in on a target group of people? Do you want to reach people at a global scale or would you rather connect with users from a specific country? These are just some of the questions that you should think about when you’re buying traffic, so make sure you get the answers out of the way before signing up with a network.
Here at FullTraffic, we give you two options when buying traffic. You can either opt for our Global Traffic...
After paying for traffic, you don't want that traffic to show up only once. You want them to visit your site often and bring their friends along, too. That sort of online behavior doesn't just happen; you have to make sure to provide incentives to encourage people to be loyal. Reward your online website traffic with specials or free offers when they do something that demonstrates their loyalty. The types of actions that can be targeted include: repeat buys, referrals, and promoting your brand on social networking sites.
Get Repeat Sales
Whether you are a restaurant that has a website online or an e-commerce Internet shop, you want to instigate the repeat sale. Research shows that it is far easier to sell to existing customers than it is to find a new customer. Thus, it's important to give them every opportunity to make a repeat sale. This can be done as quickly as the minute after the first sale is made. You can send them confirmation and a thank you email or...

The biggest challenge of any new website owner is getting traffic. Since no one knows about your newly-sprung online property, chances are you won’t have a lot of people knocking on your digital doors. Plus since you’re new, you’re probably not making enough revenue yet to hire a fancy PR firm or to buy top-notch SEO services.
Fortunately though, you don’t have to. Don’t buy into the fact that you need a lot of money to get a lot of site visitors. Below a few ways to reel in more traffic without breaking the bank:
Buy Global Traffic
Contrary to what other people may say, buying online traffic doesn’t necessarily cost an arm and a leg. At FullTraffic for instance, you can get 10,000 visitors for just $7.50 through our Global Traffic product. Doing so lets you leverage the FullTraffic network which gets more than 16 million daily impressions. This allows you to reel in massive amounts of traffic at a global scale. Get visitors from all...
That feeling of belonging isn't just good for us; it's also good for our businesses. You can buy traffic and even segment that traffic into channels, but ultimately, it won't provide you the type of insights you get from your audience when they willingly become a member of your online community. Once you get traffic to your site, you want to keep them there and learn as much as possible from them. This way, they provide valuable feedback on their buying preferences and how to more effectively market them. The more involved and invested they become in your community, the more likely they will end up buying something from you and telling their friends, too.
Blogs, Forums, and Member Areas
It's not that hard to add a member area to your website these days. Even if you only have a video or text blog, this can turn into a community of subscribers who interact with each other and you. The more that join, the more others will notice. The fact that others trust you...

Buying traffic is one of the most popular ways to increase website visitors and for good reason: It’s easy, inexpensive, and—when done right—is highly effective. However, it’s important to note that there are some guidelines that come with buying traffic, and it’s best to stick to them to ensure that you don’t raise any red flags with users.
Here are a few examples of those guidelines:
Choose the right ad network
Avoiding red flags when buying traffic starts with choosing the right ad network. Align yourself with the right company and you’ll increase the success of your campaigns.
The best way to do this is to do your research. Look into an ad network before signing up and make sure everything’s in order. One of the first things you should do is find the company’s contact information. The ad network should have adequate contact details so you can easily reach out.
