You’ve probably heard this time and time again, but it bears repeating…
Traffic is the lifeblood of the Internet.
Without web traffic your site is a ghost town…no views, no comments, no sign ups, no purchases…nothing!
The problem is that all traffic is NOT equal.
So, a more accurate mantra might be…
Targeted traffic is the lifeblood of conversions.
What’s the difference?
Generic web traffic is any visitor to your site, whether they are interested in your content or not.
Whereas, targeted traffic is visitors that are interested in your content and are more likely to take the desired action you want from them.
Now when it comes to web traffic you typically see two types mentioned…free and paid.
In reality, if you value your time there is no such thing as free traffic.
One way (money) or another (time) you are paying for your web traffic.
*Note – One exception to this rule is personalities that have a huge audience and are able to tweet or quickly post content that garners a huge response.
But for the rest of us mere mortals we have to try a little bit harder to get traffic.
Let’s look at how the typical paid vs free traffic scenario plays out…
Most paid traffic, no matter the medium (text or video or both), takes time to research and create. And then of course you have to run the ad and hope that your ad and targeting attracts the visitors you want.
The same goes for free traffic.
Time is spent thinking about the message and creating the content with the hopes that your audience will take action.
With free traffic you ALSO have to spend time trying to get eyeballs on your blog post, website, social media post or video.
So let’s compare…
- Spend an hour creating a great blog post and then create an ad and run it at $5 per day for a week. Cost – $35 (plus your creative time)
- Spend an hour writing a great blog post and then an hour a day for a week promoting that post. Cost – 7 hours (plus your creative time)
Let’s say each method brings you 300 clicks to your site…which method makes the most sense to you?
I would much rather go the paid route and use my extra time to create more content.
Here it comes…
“I don’t know how to run Facebook ads or YouTube ads” OR “I’ll blow all of my money.”
You know what, you’re probably right. (Gasp!)
I’ve spent tons of money on paid traffic training and I still struggle to create profitable campaigns.
It’s tough to get it right, but when you do…WOW!
On the flip side, I’ve also exhausted myself trying to get free traffic to my reviews and posts.
What if there was a simpler way?
A way to get quality, targeted organic traffic without all the headaches?
In fact, this paid traffic method is so simple…here are the 3 steps…
- Purchase one of the traffic packages
- Submit your target link
- Sit back and watch the traffic roll in
Yep, it’s that simple!
(Well, in all honesty you should tweak your target content to maximize conversions but you get the point.)
So, what is this super-simple traffic method?
It’s called the Abandoned Traffic Marketplace and was created by Marty Bostick.
Marty has spent the past nine months buying domains abandoned by other marketers and businesses that still have a steady flow of traffic.
Marty has seen such a large volume of clicks from his organic traffic network that he has decided to open it up to the public.
Let me answer a few quick questions for you…
Which countries does this traffic come from?
Marty has created two traffic packages, Standard and Premium. Standard traffic can come from anywhere. Premium traffic is filtered so that 85%+ comes from Tier-1 countries like the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, etc.
What niches is this traffic optimized for?
Check out the image below to see the niches you can currently choose from (Marty is adding more niches as additional domains become available and traffic networks are created):
Does Marty guarantee conversions from this traffic?
Absolutely not! Neither does Facebook, Google or any other legitimate paid traffic platform. Conversions involve so many factors that are outside of Marty’s control that there is no way to guarantee them.
What Marty guarantees is real human, organic and targeted clicks to your website.
All of this for less than a decent pizza!
Special Update – My Initial Results
I’ve been testing Marty’s service for a couple of days and so far I’m encouraged by the initial results…
First up, Marty was gracious enough to set me up with a temporary package that I directed at this blog post…
As you can see, there have been 37 clicks to this post since Monday.
Unfortunately, because I’m using the free WordPress site for this blog I don’t know how many of those visitors clicked through to Marty’s sales page or purchased his service. (I’m moving IMwithJay to it’s own site in January.)
Next up, I bought Marty’s Premium package and pointed it at an optin page offering a rolodex of free video and marketing graphics sites…
The traffic started flowing around Noon yesterday and so far…9 clicks.
Even better, I’ve had 3 optins…
I’m not sure yet why the landing page says 7 visits and my link tracking says 9, but I will
definitely keep an eye on it.
As I stated above, Marty doesn’t guarantee conversions…but I’m starting to see them!
If my optin rate stays between 25-40% I stand to gain between 75 to 120 new subscribers per month.
Also note, this particular lead magnet is geared towards affiliate sales with offers on the thank you page, in the PDF and within the follow-up email sequence.
My point being…there is plenty of opportunity for me to earn way more than what Marty’s traffic service costs me.
And all I had to do was pick a traffic package, submit my link and sit back and watch the clicks roll in.
This is as simple as it gets!
I’m very encouraged by these initial results and plan to do a more detailed case study after a few weeks of traffic.
Marty has created one of the simplest methods of paid traffic I’ve ever seen.
If you’d like to give it a try, head over to the Abandoned Traffic Marketplace, select the package you want, submit your link and watch the clicks roll in.
