How can I draw more traffic to my blog or website?
I am a young entrepreneur, trying to grow my small business. I find it difficult to win customers or draw their attention to my kind of business. How can I convince people to patronize my trade?
I'm a little biased being in the video marketing field but I can confidently say that there is no medium on the web right now more engaging than video. With the cost to produce a high quality brand video growing cheaper and cheaper, I would certainly try to engage your prospects on your homepage with a content story that is compelling using a homepage video.
Remember strong, concise content is the key in a descriptive video to attract customers. With the extended reach of social media platforms a small investment in time to make great video content can go a long way in pushing your prospects towards a desired call to action.

Hi Charles ,
You can help get your business recognized by creating your business's social media profiles such as Facebook , Twitter. Filter your search to people who cater to your business and connect with them. It is very important that your customers relate to your product/service.
Also , If you can share more information about your business, I can give you a precise answer.
Steps I follow:
1. Occasionally blog about your services. Do not directly try to sell your services, try to prove your expertise.
2. Be active on LinkedIn groups, interact with others in your field. Try to use the InMail feature.
3. Use twitter along with hashtags to generate traffic to your website.
Most importantly provide a good service and make sure your website has quality content.
Can you share a link to your website for us to get a better understanding of what your website is and what shape it is in? Your questions has to do with SEO and Content like many of the other people stated. Social media is also a great way to get things started. But, before that you need to look at making quality content and ramp up your websites' SEO.
There's a saying that you don't choose your clients, the clients choose you. So - by putting out valuable information and quality content, you will attract clients that need what you provide.
One recommendation is to recognize the importance of face-to-face networking. People do business with people they know, like and trust. This is difficult to achieve if you don't get your personality and self out there. Lining up speaking engagements, attending network events where your target niche or clients will be, going to places where your target clients go, doing things that your target clients do, etc are ways for your future fan-base to get to know you.
Don't just expect that people will automatically find your blog or website. Get out there and allow them to get to know the real you.
I am a chef by trade. I wanted to get on a show called chopped. I felt the best way was to get my name out as much as possible. I used the web though twitter, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Yelp. As many sites as possible adding friends that would contribute to reading my blog. It took a lot of work but time I would usually have called dead time where I didn't feel productive I used this time to work on building my exposure.I also did a lot of video blogging posting on FB and Twitter. It work so well for me not to get on Chopped but I was offered to do two other shows and became one of the top 40 celebrity chefs that year because of the web presence I built. My way is a long drug out but it worked for me. Once the momentum gets going you have to keep it up. If I had nothing to say I posted a quote, usually something that pertained to a situation one of my 5000 FB friends and 530 followers were discussing so they had a message to them. People air their lives on these sights. putting something that hits home or gives them an inspirational answer to their issues bring them looking at all you have to offer.
add lot of useful good content about your business and perform full SEO or get a SEO professional to help you. This will improve your credibility and bring more organic traffic to your site.
