Traffic Online - Getting Your Audience to Click and Buy Your Product
This LEFT Finger Gets You Traffic
Ok. You Clicked It
Are you happy now?
You are officially in my webpage. Trapped, of course, unable to reach the Red X leave me key until the page loads.
I suppose that I should write something interesting for you to read while you are here. We could make polite conversation. Here goes nothing:
How has your day been going? Is everything running smoothly for you? Do you have anything better to do than sit and read this to the end.
NO! You do not. That is why you are here, clicking into another person's page to see if you learn anything.
Unfortunately, I have nothing to teach, EXCEPT that CURIOUS people will click on your link. You don't need the Queen's English to write, you don't need to sound like Mark Twain and Huckleberry Finn. You just need to get them to click.
It Doesn't Take an Interesting Subject
You can talk about Cellulite. You can talk about those painful moments where you cannot walk and your legs swell up and your skin looks all puckered up like a bad orange.
You can talk about it. People will listen. People, like yourself, who want to know about it.
If you had cellulite, you'd be online looking up ways to get rid of it. Right? I have sore feet sometimes, which is another subject, but one I am definitely interested in reading about. Someone with happy feet would NEVER bother to type sore feet into the search engine for relief. Just sore feet people. So, your audience is there, just limited.
See my point?
Do You See My Point?
.... you didn't answer me, so I'm asking you directly, again.
DO YOU SEE MY POINT????
Well. I'm sorry I'm shouting, I thought it would help you to understand. Once again, I have to stress the point that only CURIOUS people will click. People who are curious to read your answer are the people that will click.
Do you understand that concept? Curiosity killed the cat. Of course, that cat has nine lives, so you don't notice that the cat had endangered itself over and over. Because cats are adventurous. Well. They take chances. Risks, they call them.
Really, a risk is just a chance that has the ability to change something about you.
That change, whether it be a piece of your skin, as it gets cut or bruised, is a risk that may have to be taken to learn something.
Even if you learn that a knife blade is sharp and will leave a hole in your skin, curiosity is what creates the action. The knife blade only serves to enable you to learn. JUST like a mouse, enables you to click.
Once again, are you following my point?
Yell if you don't understand... leave a comment below.
