We all want more website traffic, without it, the phone wouldn’t ring, we’d have no emails, and crucially no business! We’ve compiled this quick and easy list of ways to drive more traffic to your website and hopefully increase your conversions in the process.

1: Social Media Posts

Posting on social media is a great way to share your content. When you write a new blog post or introduce new services you should be posting this to your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages which should generate some traffic.

Creating a blog for your website is a brilliant way to gain more traffic. Make sure to post articles that are relevant to your business and include some good keywords. If you’re unsure about which keywords to target, you can use tools like Moz SEO, or Ubersuggest to research and find some good quality keywords to target.
