#1: Make Sure You Are Writing On A Consistent Basis And Write Quality Articles That People Will Read
If you’ve run your own online-only business for a long time, then you probably understand the importance of article writing. You need to make sure that you are writing articles on a consistent basis so that you can keep your presence fresh. It is certainly all right to take time off from writing for whatever reason, but it is important not to allow yourself to get into the habit of not writing. As you continue to write more and more, you will start to see the number of people visiting your site increase.
Keep in mind that these need to be quality articles. Everyone’s definition of quality differs and this is a subject that could take more than one article to describe, but nonetheless, the articles need to be of high quality. If you are producing articles that do not promote original points of view or articles that aren’t informing the audience, your readers will eventually see this and that could work against you.
#2: Make Sure You Have A Twitter Account And That You Are Active On It
Social media is a must if you want to increase views to your site, but Twitter is the one social media platform that you must have if you must choose only one. This is because of how many people and businesses use Twitter on a daily basis. If you can be active on Twitter on a daily basis and build relationships with those you follow as well as those who follow you, you can gain a significant amount of traffic to your website. But this requires patience and a solid understanding of how to use Twitter and who to go after.
