Course Description

These WordPress traffic growth tactics have worked for my sites and the sites of coaching clients of mine for years, and continue to work.

In fact, even through Google updates that caused sites around the world to lose rankings, the sites I worked on continued to do well.

But, very importantly, the traffic generation tactics and strategies I detail in this course do not depend on Google. Google traffic is great, but Google likes to change its mind regularly about which sites to reward, and which sites to punish. So if you're really looking to build a valuable site that gets a ton of traffic, leads and sales, it's vital you diversify your traffic.

That's what this course is all about... attracting high quality traffic from multiple sources - without - paying for advertising.

So whether you're:

  • New to WordPress but interested in growing your website
  • An experienced website owner looking to get more traffic
  • A freelancer or agency offering traffic generation services to clients

This course can help you grow website traffic to hundreds, even thousands of visitors a day, surprisingly quickly, and in almost any market. And very importantly, these results can then continue to come in for years to come, rather than the short term results you get when you pay for advertising.

So by taking this course you get:

  • Access to dozens of videos where I've aimed to share everything I know about growing website traffic significantly (and for the long term) without paying for advertising.
  • Downloads of many slides so you can refer to them whenever you choose.
  • Details on all the traffic generation tactics and strategies I use in my own business.

If you're really diligent, you could go through the entire course in one (long) day making notes and actionable items as you go through it.

Or you could take a more leisurely approach and go through one part of the course a day, or even just go through each part in turn, implement it, then onto the next. Although be aware all the parts of this course work together, so it's best you start to implement them at around the same time as each other if at all possible.

What are the requirements?

  • Familiarity with WordPress is recommended
  • An understanding of basic internet marketing concepts is helpful

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Follow a strategy that can grow your website traffic to tens of thousands of visitors a month (or more)
  • Easily create, publish and promote content that attracts a massive audience
  • Optimize your website so that it easily ranks well in the search engines
  • Use social networks effectively to become a "Thought Leader" in your market
  • Get visitors, leads and customers referred to you from incredibly high traffic websites
  • Grow a responsive email list of tens of thousands of subscribers

Who is the target audience?

  • WordPress site owners who want to reach a much wider audience
  • Business owners who want to generate many more leads, sales and profits
  • People who would like to build a very valuable/profitable website
  • Freelancers or agencies that would like to offer traffic generation services to clients
