In today?s web-obsessed world, more and more people are turning to the net for just about anything and everything. In fact, the Internet is the number one source for shopping, for researching term papers, for chatting with friends, for catching up on celebrity gossip, for buying consumer products, for watching the news and for generally staying informed with the world. This is why the World Wide Web has also been hailed a cyber-gold mine for marketing.
Regardless of what you want to do with the web, there is the potential to make a lot of money and market your product or service to the right clientele. Because the Internet is a global phenomenon, more and more marketers and every day Joes are discovering the potential of traffic. What we mean by traffic are those people who visit your website. Every time someone clicks on your website, this is traffic to your site.
Want an analogy? In the real world, the equivalent would be a shop browser. Anytime someone browses through your shop, there is a better chance that he will buy something. This can be considered traffic.
Traffic generators can be a personal website, a business profile, a blog site or anything else. The rewards of this traffic are twofold. For one, if you own a business, the more traffic your can direct to your company site, the more people are going to buy your product or service. For two, if you are part of an affiliate or membership site program, you can get paid anytime someone clicks on your website from pay per click or other web marketing programs.
Sounds pretty good, doesn?t it?
That?s what the rest of the world thinks too.
