3 Tips to Drive High Traffic from Social Media Sites


Your blog is the real business place for you and you intend to drive as much as traffic as possible. People try figuring out different ways for driving high traffic but often forget one of the easiest ways of achieving the same.

It is said that business must not be guided on personal lines but apparently it is also true that people carry out business with only those whom they trust and relate to.

When it comes to building personal relationships for driving traffic, social sharing takes the front foot. It is a simple three step process which can help you drive higher traffic to webpage.

1. Follow your followers

Follow your Followers
Follow like-minded people

There is a very popular saying in English,

Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.

It fits in very well in this scenario. You must follow people on social sites if you want them to follow you. It is simply a give and take relationship. You take interest in their happenings and in return they reciprocate by visiting your blog.

Moreover, following people makes you discover people and likings. You can easily figure out the likeminded people and target the potential audience for your blog. Once you are sorted, you can continue following the likeminded class and ignore others.

It gets easier finding the active audience and replying to their comments or suggestions before they end up ignoring you.

2. Untangle the “thread of discontent”

It is extremely important that you know what people want. In order to figure out what the crowd desires, you must listen carefully to what they say. Pay careful attention to the comments and the posts made by them. These posts and comments will give you an insight in their thoughts and desires.

You must focus on what kind of data they share often. In other words you should become a pebble in the pond which has been dropped to rouse ripples. However, before arousing these ripples you must unravel the thread of content.

Untangling the thread of discontent will enable you to discover the thoughts and beliefs of your followers.

3. Make sure the Content is what the Audience wants

Choose and write on topics which your readers like

You must design your contents by stepping in the shoes of your followers. Once you start talking on their lines, the task becomes very easy.

For example, in a conference for marketers you are presenting your views regarding salesmanship versus marketing, if you present your views keeping in mind the grievances of the marketers and molding your thoughts in their words, your thoughts will definitely make an impact on the audience.

Through a personalized approach, this step works wonders for driving high traffic to your blog. Thus it is clear that driving high traffic to your blog doesn’t only demand good quality consistent articles. What matters is that you deliver content that appeals to the masses and connects to them on personal front.

Once people discover the reflection of their personal reality in your blog, the traffic will keep on pouring in and the number of followers will increase day by day.

  1. I like the first point “Follow your followers”. Thanks Margaret sharing this great article.

    1. Following your followers is one of the easiest ways to increase traffic in social media sites. Also, it is a good idea to sometimes ask your readers on what topic you would be writing about next – for sure you’d get great feedback from them.

  2. The great thing about social followers is that you have a captive audience. Social media is about being social. Ask your followers what kind of content they’d like to see and actually listen to their responses.

  3. People forget to refollow on Twitter a lot and I’m convinced it loses a ton of followers.
