You’ve built it … but have they come?
Getting traffic to your website is an ongoing challenge for small businesses, entrepreneurs, startups and nonprofits.
The good news is, it doesn’t take a huge budget to attract traffic. Nor do you have to be a search engine whiz or spend all day on social media.
All you need is the right knowledge to make the right moves at the right times. In other words, you need a traffic building plan — from someone who knows what it takes to grow traffic on a budget.
Join Small Business Trends CEO and founder Anita Campbell, as she shares her secrets and tips for getting more traffic to your website in a FREE WEBINAR hosted by Verizon.
Campbell started a website from scratch with just one visitor — herself — and almost no money. Today she has several online properties, the largest of which, SBT, attracts over 2 million visitors each month.
In this one-hour webinar Campbell will illustrate the techniques she used and continues to use to grow traffic, month after month, including:
- Inexpensive and sometimes overlooked sources of traffic.
- The benefits of content as the foundation of a good traffic plan; and of having an easy-to-update section of your website or a blog to add content.
- A strategy for creating awesome content of your own, and curating content from other sources, to attract visitors and keep them coming back.
- Simple techniques to set up a social media calendar and publishing calendar, because consistency is key to traffic growth.
- 5 easy ways to optimize your website to get more search engine traffic.
- The role of an email list, and how to use your list to lure visitors back to your site.
- Top 7 mistakes businesses make with their websites that let traffic slip away — and how to fix them.
This webinar session will be packed with practical ideas and inexpensive tips you can put into practice today. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer, or you want to be able to interact with your website developer as a more effective resource, there’s something for everyone in this session.
Assisting by providing insights and additional sources for the webinar was Matt Mansfield Small Business Trends’ Tech Editor and SEO specialist and also President of Matt About Business. Also lending invaluable assistance was Gail Gardner, Small Business Marketing Strategist and founder of GrowMap.

I enjoyed the article. It has refreshed my memory as well as giving me new tools to increase traffic to my site.Thank you for putting this useful information together.
I can say that Anita Campbell knows what to do when it comes to traffic building. I have been following this website and her other two websites I know. The rates at which they were growing are alarming. When somebody promises to deliver something, it makes sense to check whether the person is worth the talk. In the case of Anita Campbell, she doesn’t need to say much as the results she had achieved so far speak volume of her expertise. Funny enough, when I read through her background, it has nothing to do with programming. Let me use this platform to say that your achievements is a motivation to me. I am trying to use what I learn from your websites do develop my own website too. Though considerably new, it is growing by the day. Please keep doing the good works. You are touching lives around the world especially from angles you never expected.
I agree, Adebayo, although I don’t think I would call it “alarming” – unless I were a competitor she was leaving in the dust. She definitely knows how to grow websites. Only about a year ago she mentioned SmallBizTrends was past 1 million uniques a month. Less than a year later, she mentions in this post that they are at 2 million. She doubled that huge traffic in less than a year!
You know she grew BizSugar to 1 million or maybe it was 1.5 million users. It is still on the top of our most used voting sites just after Inbound.org and GrowthHackers. I’m not sure how large TweakYourBiz is now, but no doubt it grows, too.
This is definitely a webinar worth attending for anyone who wants more traffic to their sites or clients’ sites.
Traffic generation will always be a major issue for website owners. Without traffic, there will be no sales.
I think that you need more than traffic. You need loyal fans who will support anything that you put out.
I think that the topic of traffic generation will not get old. I think that it is even growing.
Love the idea on Share Triggers. I’ll definitely be trying to implement this strategy in the new authority site that I’m building. I’ll be keeping an eye out for the new training material you’ll be releasing. Looking forward to it!
Very nice blog post I like it thanks for sharing it with us keep it up
