Without traffic, you can’t get subscribers or sales. It’s the foundation of an online business. In most cases, your efforts will focus on getting subscribers because it’s easier to get people who don’t know you to subscribe than to buy. After they subscribe, you can nurture the relationship and convert them to customers or clients.

But how do you attract the attention needed to get people to your website?

    • Tuscany Kale

      I have a question about affiliate products. My blog is being offered an affiliate partnership on skin products. Is it ok to promote products that you haven’t tried? Will that drive your readers away or will they appreciate the information given about certain skin products even if I haven’t really used them?

    • Ellen Finkelstein

      Tuscany, I only promote products that I’ve either tried or from creators whom I know and trust. So you have to decide. You could ask for a sample and try it. You could research the ingredients. If the products are really an unknown thing, I’d be cautious. But in general, if what you promote is valuable for your specific audience, people will appreciate it. So, if your blog is about beauty or skin health, then it’s relevant. And you should always make it clear that your links are affiliate links.
