Traffic That Converts
- Organic Traffic: Free search engine traffic can be a beautiful thing, IF you can get it. (It's getting harder) It can also take a while to create enough content that the search engines will value you and your website as experienced operators with sufficient expertise and trustworthiness.
- Search Engine Optimization: SEO can be a big driver of organic traffic and we'll teach you how to optimize your content for search, but another element of SEO is keyword research, including evaluating what your competitors are optimizing and ranking for. Keyword research helps you determine what provocations your audience has so you can create content that will appeal to them.

- Audience Retargeting: You can run ads to people who have visited your website, but didn't buy your offer. It all begins with setting a cookie when someone lands on different pages and compared with pages they did not visit. For instance, a visitor who lands on a product page, but does not land on a 'confirming your purchase' page, indicates the sale was abandoned. You can run ads to those visitors encouraging them to come back.

You can also set up a series of emails that begin being sent once someone joins your list. These automated emails can also be set to change based on activity - a sales automation may end when something is purchased, which may also trigger ab automation supporting the sale.

- How to Tag Your Subscribers So You Can Personalize Your Messages: As referenced above, you can tag email subscribers based on activity or other characteristics. For instance, you might want to send an email to subscribers who came to you from a Facebook ad, but never bought the product. You can then customize an off directly to them.
- Selecting an Email Service Provider: We'll teach you how to select an Email Service Provider that fits your needs. Considerations, such as capabilities and price will be important factors in your decision.
