Work At Home - Visitors To Your Website Could Help

by Brian Lett

Often times people set out to work at home with great ambition, and the best of intentions. For instance, they reserve their web address, come up with a niche based product or service to sell, create a website, find the best hosting solutions, and secure a means of accepting payments. After all of this, they are distraught when nobody is purchasing their products or services. What could they be missing?

The problem is the fact that there are no visitors coming to the website. Without visitors to your website, it does not matter if you have the most desirable product or service in the world, your sales numbers will still struggle. Website traffic is the single most challenging aspect to anyone working to make money online.

When the Internet first began to gain popularity in the mid-90's, all you really had to do to get on the first page of the search engines was submit your website. My how things have changed. Google has come around and taken steps to ensure that only the most relevant and trusted websites rank for targeted keywords, and the other major search engines have followed.

Since the mid-1990's, the mechanics of the Internet has changed drastically. As mentioned above, the search engines have become more complex. However, we also need to factor in that there are now over eight billion websites on the Internet, and only ten websites ranked on the first page of any given search term, no matter the engine.

As we all know, the Internet is great since, barring restriction by your specific country, anyone can access anything online from anywhere in the world. This is both a good thing and a bad thing as the accessibility of the Internet works both ways. While the one billion plus Internet users have the potential to see your website, other webmasters have the same potential. Consequently, most websites receive very little traffic, and earn very little money. This is not great for the person who makes it their goal to make money online.

What do you need to do in order to work at home and get the traffic that you need?

I can tell you this. You cannot generate traffic by simply pushing a button, as some may claim, unless you have thousands of dollars to throw away on Pay Per Click marketing. Even then you will be required to do your keyword research and put a campaign together. Therefore, you need to break your back to get your website all over the web. To do this, you will need an expansive, dynamic online advertising strategy. You cannot simply rely on Google, Bing, or Yahoo for your traffic. If you do, you are selling yourself short of about ninety percent of the visitors who want to know about your website, and the products or services which it offers.

Becoming a work at home success requires determination, hard work, and research. Research as many traffic techniques as you can, and experiment with as many as possible. Though it will cost you time and perhaps some money, it is all an investment. Nothing comes easy, especially the ability to make money online. If it did, everyone would be doing it successfully.
