It’s because of the growing amount of online sales that more and more sellers need services from marketers to get even more sales to their products – and their willing to pay you for it.

 

There are hundreds of sources of traffic but let’s start with some of the most popular ones

 

 

Social Media

 

It’s the biggest sources of traffic because billions of people use social networks on a daily basis. We live and breathe social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Pinterest etc. Social networks like Facebook have reached billions of users and that means that it offers huge opportunities for your online marketing campaigns.

 

Facebook – this is still the best platform for online marketing. You can run ads on Facebook and get ROI (Return on investment) if you do things right.  The biggest social network is not limited to paid ads only – you can run your campaigns without spending a penny. You can join niche related groups and promote your product with this free strategy. Facebook has endless opportunities for entrepreneurs. It would be good for a newbie to focus on free campaigns at first and then concentrate on paid ads once the money starts coming in.

 

 

 

 

Instagram – This app was just a few months old when Facebook brought it for 1 billion dollars. Yes, you read it correctly: Facebook paid 1 Billion dollars for a six months old app. Is it crazy? NO, because Instagram is very popular in the US and around the globe. Instagram is super popular for luxury and travel niches. You can basically get unlimited customers from Instagram promotions – either invest in Instagram Ads or go for influencers. Those are the people who have a huge follower base on Instagram and can promote your product/service on their page. You need to test which type of Instagram marketing works for you and then scale it up.

 

Pinterest – it’s a trendy app in the United States. US Women above 30 love Pinterest and niches such as weight loss, recipes and fashion are the most popular on there. If your business is in these niches, you should go for Pinterest. Just like Facebook, Pinterest has its own ads system with which you can run ads to super targeted customers and get sales. If you’re on a tight budget, you have to go for the free option – Pinterest Group Boards. You can drive thousands of targeted Pinterest users straight to your blog/offer.
