What traffic strategies would you like to learn?

A few weeks ago I asked our subscribers about the #1 thing holding them back in business.

The biggest problem by far was TRAFFIC… not too surprising.

So I’ve decided to create a NEW traffic series called ‘Traffic Pipelines’.

I’ll be sending out the first video tomorrow.

But first I wanted to ask you personally…

* What specific traffic strategies would you like to learn? *

Let me know in the comments below…

Today I’m going to be hanging out on the blog pretty much all day, so we’ll have plenty of time to chat :)

    HI Kim,

    I would like to learn more about paid advertisement.
    Thank you,

      Hey Julio,

      Awesome! That’s definitely one of the things we’ll be talking about in our series :) I don’t want to give away any hints just yet but I think you’ll like it. Thanks for the comment!

    Dear Kim,

    Anything which can be converted into sales immediately,even paid traffic,as simple as that.


    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:27 am Permalink

      Hey Hari,

      There are lots of traffic sources that can convert into sales quickly (when you know how to setup your sales funnel properly). But keep in mind that the majority of your profits will be made on the back-end and through follow-up emails.

      This is a long-term game. When you shift your thinking from…

      “How can I make more money?”


      “How can I provide more value?”

      That’s when you start seeing your best results.

    Paid traffic OTHER than Facebook. I have heard terms like “media buys” and I’ve heard of Outbrain.com but don’t know much about them. Would love to learn more. Thanks!

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:28 am Permalink

      Hey Kristine,

      Thanks for your comment!

      I’m just curious – why have you given up on Facebook?

      We’ve personally seen amazing results with Facebook.

      I’m betting with a few tweaks you would love it just as much
      as we do :)

      – Kim

      • kristine 16 April 2013 at 3:56 pm Permalink

        I haven’t given up on FB yet, but I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket, I guess I’m worried they will change the rules like Google does. I want to learn several paid strategies so I don’t have to rely on one.

  6. Patty 1 April 2013 at 10:32 am Permalink

    Hi Kim,

    How about using social media(facebook, twitter, pinterest…), and which one seems to be more effective for traffic and conversion to sales?

    Thank you!!

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:36 am Permalink

      Hey Patty,

      Great question!

      It actually depends on your market. Certain markets simply kill it
      on Pinterest – while others are better suited for Facebook.

      So it really just depends. There are different ‘best traffic strategies’ for each market.

      But I’ll definitely be talking about some of my personal favorites
      in upcoming videos.

      However – just a quick teaser for you – Pinterest in particular has been ranking extremely well on Google :)

      • Sourabh Rana 1 April 2013 at 10:40 am Permalink

        I am equally working on these platforms but only Facebook is giving me good results rather than others. Really I am finding the reasons for failures on other platforms.

  7. Sourabh Rana 1 April 2013 at 10:33 am Permalink

    Hi KIM,

    I am just a big fan of yours simple & short traffic ideas.

    I wanna to need learn effective web design & call to actions in SITE which can convert traffic into leads. & Any traffic idea which is for Viral & create Brand awareness as well

    Thanks for your this question.

    Hi Kim,
    I would like to learn how to generate traffic from video with Youtube. You can no longer just put up a video on youtube and get a lot of views. I would love to hear your ninja tips on how to get views and traffic from youtube in 2013.


    • Benton Middleton 1 April 2013 at 2:15 pm Permalink

      Hi Angela,

      Really, there are many ways to get YouTube traffic. Some marketers reply to other “similar” videos as a “video response”. but you have to be careful with this so you don’t get spammed. Another way is to contact the owner of a popular video (Say over 100,000 views or so) and pay them a small amount to link YOUR VIDEO in Their description. There is an ebook out there called “YouTube Arbitrage”, well worth checking out, about 64 pages of pure content like this.

      Hopefully, Kim will have a few strategies like this and maybe expound on the ones I mentioned here. Hope this helps and Happy Marketing.

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:09 am Permalink

      Hey Angela,

      YouTube is an awesome platform! Especially within certain markets.

      I just checked my dad’s YouTube channel this morning. He has a site about Tennessee Walking Horses and he has 232,043 views on his YouTube videos. So the potential is huge. Plus, it’s a great way to brand yourself as well.

      I would first make sure you’re optimizing your videos properly to rank well in the search engines (and within YouTube).

      Here are a few quick tips:

      1. Include your main keyword phrase in the title of the video.

      2. Include your keyword phrase in the description of the video. This is an area that many people don’t take advantage of. Search engines do not index the words in your video. So, the only way they know what the video is about is what you tell them in the title and description, so be sure to include plenty of information in the description area.

      In fact, what I like to do is include an entire article in the description area. This allows me to optimize my page for my targeted keyword phrases along with a number of keyword variations.

      3. Include your keyword phrase in the filename of the video itself that you upload. Many people don’t realize that YouTube looks at the filename itself as well to determine relevance.

      4. Many of the video sites also let you upload keywords or tags. This is where you would want to include the desired keyword phrase you want to rank for along with some related keywords. This will help you rank higher for these keywords within the video search engine itself.

      5. Build backlinks pointing to your video. This is the final step you need to take to rank well in Google using YouTube. Inbound links are one of the biggest factors to ranking well in Google.

      For long tail keywords you can often rank simply because your video is on a very authoritative website (YouTube). But if you’re going after some more competitive keywords than you’ll want to do a bit of link building.

      But video is an awesome platform for traffic AND branding.



  10. JohnLee 1 April 2013 at 10:38 am Permalink

    hey Kim…I’m always looking for evergreen traffic methods that will yield consistent traffic to my squeeze pages in competitive niches like insurance, internet marketing, etc. Also, I’d especially like to develop consistent traffic in local market niches.

    Looking forward to your series.

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:44 am Permalink

      Hey JohnLee,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      I would highly recommend you focus on ONE market and go DEEP
      into that particular market building out one sales funnel
      with multiple back-end products.

      This is much more lucrative then spreading yourself thin
      over multiple markets.

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:44 pm Permalink

      Hey Eric!

      BuySellAds.com is awesome! But also keep in mind buying ads directly from website owners (or mom and pop sites) will be dramatically cheaper.

    Hi Kim,

    I would like to see some training on how to get traffic from Linkedin as it looks as if it would be a great source for traffic. Do you use it yourself Kim? I would like to know if it is worth my time learning this strategy.

    I wish you all the success in the world with your new traffic series.


    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:47 am Permalink

      Hey Frank,

      Great to hear from you!

      It really depends on which market you’re in.

      LinkedIn tends to be a bit higher in price so we personally
      have focused on other platforms :)

      – Kim

      • Frank Bow 1 April 2013 at 10:49 am Permalink

        Thanks for the quick reply Kim. I have been concentrating on facebook so maybe some up to date facebook strategies would help people.


      • Benton Middleton 1 April 2013 at 2:23 pm Permalink

        The advantage of LinkedIn is, especially if you are B2B or targeting strictly marketers, that it is primarily business related targeting. In other words, people there are listing their skills, talents and/or resources so you know what kind of person you are dealing with. The pricing is higher, but you are not getting tire-kickers, you are mingling with other business owners or people seriously interested in a business of their own.

    Hi Kim,

    After 125 blog posts since November with minimal success…other than having a few posts rank on the first page of Google…I would like to try solo ads to get some leads so I can at least have someone to give stuff to.

    I’ve heard about solo ads
    idk if you could go in further detail with that :)

    Thank you

  18. Dawn Kay 1 April 2013 at 10:48 am Permalink

    Hi Kim

    I would like to know more about solo ads.

    I know where to get them from but am looking more for the funnel you need to have in place to make them worth while.

    Love your new site by the way.

    Take care


    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:43 pm Permalink

      Hey Dawn!

      Glad you like the new site :)

      We’ll definitely be talking more about solo ads in upcoming videos!

      One of the best funnels you can use for a solo ad is to get them on a webinar that’s happening fairly soon. On the webinar you deliver great value and sell a high-priced product of at least $197. Preferably $497. This is one of the best models in terms of ROI.

      There are definitely other options as well but I just wanted to share one of the best models that we’ve seen.



  19. Phil 1 April 2013 at 10:49 am Permalink

    Ms Kim, I would like more information or perhaps the explaination of the different levels of traffic generation. Like where does one get wholesale traffic? Are they any good,etc? I’ve got quotes from different generators with programs that overlay ads on top of search results. But there seems to me that a good coder should be able to recreate a similar program for the masses and just provide this as a product to purchase (or rent). Any thoughts or advice would appreciated.

  20. Rodney 1 April 2013 at 10:52 am Permalink

    Do you have any thoughts about Instagram? Is it a platform that can be used to drive traffic?



    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 10:54 am Permalink

      Hey Rodney,

      Thanks for your comment!

      Almost every platform can drive traffic.

      The more important question is which one is BEST
      to focus on for YOUR market.

      All of us have a limited amount of time during the
      day so the real key is focusing your time on
      the highest leverage activities.

      • Rodney 1 April 2013 at 12:04 pm Permalink

        Hello Kim,

        You are so right! I’ve never thought about it like that. So much time is wasted following the latest fad, that nothing ever gets accomplished.

        I’m going to find one traffic strategy that works and that I like, and master it before I start chasing another strategy down a rabbit hole.

        Thanks for your time and insight…


  21. April 1 April 2013 at 10:53 am Permalink

    I would like to know the difference between CPA and PPC, or if there is any difference? I’ve heard these terms used interchangeably, that is the reason for this question. Also, the method that has proven to be the best and gives the fastest ROI as well as how to implement that strategy on a shoe string budget.

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:39 pm Permalink

      Hi April,

      CPA stands for Cost Per Action and PPC is pay-per-click. These are two completely different things. PPC is an advertising term. You pay ‘per click’ on ad platforms like Google Adwords and Facebook. CPA is also related to advertising. But you’re paying ‘per action’. So you’re paying every time you generate a lead or a sale.

      There are generally three forms of paid advertising…

      CPM – Cost per thousand impressions
      CPA – Cost per action
      PPC – Cost per click

    I have 13 blogs on Blogger.com my best one I just put in as the Website.

    However, I write on HugPages and have many articles there— I need to get more traffic for and I feel as hard as I work every day on my writing I am not making any money.

    I started this late in life and I am not a computer geek. I would appreciate any help.

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:35 pm Permalink

      Hey Bobbi,

      My biggest suggestion to you would be to focus on ONE website.

      It’s easy to spread yourself thin online. You’ll find that it’s
      MUCH more effective to focus on ONE market and start building
      your long-term assets that generate revenue month in and month
      out. (The most important of these being your subscriber list)

  23. Ted 1 April 2013 at 10:56 am Permalink

    Hi Kim,
    I’m always interested in learning more about organic search engine traffic so I guess this would be keyword research and also link building.
    I’m also interested in learning about Facebook traffic, and whether or not there are any niches where it would work better than others

  24. john 1 April 2013 at 11:08 am Permalink

    something that really works would be great

    I regularly do articles – forum postings blog posts etc
    but very little buying traffic to be honest
    And i have virtually given up on cpa as costs for roi are so small or negative
    so looking forward to this Kim


    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:33 pm Permalink

      Hey John,

      It sounds like you’re already doing a lot of things right.

      Forum marketing is definitely one of my favorites in terms
      of free traffic strategies. You should be able to generate
      a few hundreds subscribers per week with that strategy.

      Are you including a link to your squeeze page in the signature file?

      Keep in touch :)


  25. Tom Lua 1 April 2013 at 11:09 am Permalink

      Page rank has actually become less and less important.

      Instead – what we’re finding works best is creating high-quality content, building high-quality backlinks, and creating a tightly integrated internal link structure within our sites.

    Hi Kim,

    Do you agree that it is good for any (own) website or blog to have Twitter account, Google + page, Facebook page and Pinterest page?

    Which social network is currently the best?

    Sorry on my English which is not the best :)


    All the best!

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:30 pm Permalink

      Hey Bostjan,

      Thanks for your comment!

      It really depends on which market you’re in.

      I recommend focusing on the Top 2-3 social networks
      that YOUR particular market hangs out on.

      So for us – that includes Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

      For other markets – Pinterest is a killer traffic source.

      So it really just depends on your particular audience.

    Thanks for your reply in advance.



    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 1:13 pm Permalink

      Hey Alex,

      Thanks for stopping by!

      I’m personally a big fan of a software called Linktrackr
      for tracking conversions. Testing and tracking is hands
      down one of the best things we started doing for our business.

      And yes I’m definitely a fan of solo ads. The biggest key
      is making sure you pick the right ones and having a proper
      sales funnel in place.

  41. Guy 1 April 2013 at 1:16 pm Permalink

    Hi Kim,

    Simply put, any kind of free traffic that will bring in between $500 to $1,000 within the first 30 days and can hopefully still bring in $500 to $1,000 from that time onwards – without having to set up a backend or a membership site.

    I don’t care if it’s a simple procedure or a bunch of procedures that require a lot of man-hours to work. But I want the execution of the procedures to work within 30 days.

    Can that be done?

    I would love to know more about FB ads. I have tried a few times but not got a result. Solo ads is something you talk about but I don’t understand how to set them up. I also have some confusion about where you drive traffic too, do you always drive it to a squeeze page or are there occasions when its best to drive it straight to the product page. How to convert twitter into traffic?

    and move towards some paid strategies to target peeps who

    may or may not know they are interested in

    being coached to learn eBay drop shipping.

    Sorry for the weird wording!

    Hey Kim,

    If you have a $100 budget and restricted to use one paid advertisement, which one you choose and why?

    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 3:30 pm Permalink

      Hi Sajan!

      I would personally use Facebook Page Post Ads to fill a webinar.

      With page post ads you can target fans of related Facebook fan pages.
      You can laser target your exact target audience and then send them
      to a custom landing page on Facebook inviting them to your webinar.

      This way you’re building your subscriber list AND you can generate
      a positive ROI very quickly.

    Hi Kim,

    What is working for you right now in paid traffic? I have heard you say you like Solo Ads. But is that your #1 paid traffic choice?


    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 3:02 pm Permalink

      Hey Mike!

      We like a variety of paid traffic sources.

      Some of my personal favorites include Facebook Ads, Solo Ads, Paid Blog Reviews,
      Banner Retargeting, and setting up custom deals with other site owners.

      You’ll hear more about these in our upcoming videos :)

    Hi Kim

    Be interested to hear your opinions on this subject as I know we’ll get a straight and truthful answer

    For myself I’d like to hear if you think that free traffic still exists when you take your time into account to generate it

    I’d also like to hear your views on using some of the penny traffic type methods and how you’ve filtered out the click fraud on these to end up with people who are interested in buying

    Thanks for sharing Tony

    I would like to know what are three of the fastest ways to generate real targeted traffic and build my list. Free traffic strategies would be best. I am on a shoe string budget. Paid traffic would be a future option, I would do later on, after I made some money.



    • KimRoach 1 April 2013 at 3:34 pm Permalink

      Hey Jim! It really depends on your particular market.

      But overall, some of my favorite free traffic strategies include
      Forum Marketing, Guest Blogging, and creating pillar content
      on your blog.

      I’ll be talking more in detail about some of these in upcoming



  51. Ness 1 April 2013 at 3:56 pm Permalink

    Hey, I’m kind of more interested in “keeping” the traffic, so the most important question for me is how to keep the first time visitors? Do “subscribe and get THIS and THIS for FREE” type of deals work also without a very specific (niche) squeeze page? Can it be broadened?

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:18 am Permalink

      Hey Ness,

      Great question!

      Our first video in the series tackles this question.

      I think you’ll like it :)

    Hi Kim,
    can you fill us in on advertising on high traffic blogs and creating joint ventures with bloggers such as swapping free ebooks, guest posting and column writing?

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:18 am Permalink

      Hey Lou,

      Thanks for stopping by!

      When it comes to joint ventures and affiliates it really all comes down to relationship building. Building genuine relationships online and finding ways to provide value first. That’s the biggest mistake that most people are making. They approach potential affiliates thinking about themselves first. Instead of first focusing exclusively on how they can provide value to the other person.

  53. Colin Campbell 1 April 2013 at 4:29 pm Permalink

    Hi Kim

    How you doing. Just finishing a great Easter Weekend.

    I have just joined a new business opportunity with Pure Leverage and my big issue is how to generate a solid downline. This means that I need to target prospects that most likely are already in a networking business as they could well have a team that they could bring to me. That would be my ideal prospect. But I know that will require some hard work that does’nt bother me. The thing is how to prospect for serious people looking to build a full time/part time business. I need to avoid the tyre kickers.

    I look forward to your feedback

    Very best regards

    Hey Kim. As a person who considers himself a student of KRMU (Kim Roach Marketing University), I would like to learn about blogging networks. I have been hearing a lot about them lately. Many of them claim to be an excellent source of traffic. Your thoughts?

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:16 am Permalink

      Hey Edward,

      Great to hear from you!

      I’m not sure what you mean by ‘blogging networks’.

      Doesn’t sound like something I would recommend though.

      Feel free to explain a bit more though.

  55. Lydia Brown 1 April 2013 at 4:52 pm Permalink

    I have read so much about solo ads but finding a trustworthy source seems difficult I guess no one wants to give up the source that is working for them. I have a lot of interest in FBPPC so tips on that would be helpful

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:15 am Permalink

      Hi Lydia!

      Thanks so much for your comment :)

      Really appreciate the feedback.

      I’m a big fan of solo ads and Facebook PPC as well.

      Although you are right in that solo ads are getting tougher.

      Very shady with quite a few ‘not so hot’ providers.

      That’s why we’ve moved more towards Facebook Ads. You’re able to position yourself directly in front of your audience – targeting fans of related fan pages. And get laser-targeted traffic that converts to subscribers.

      I’ll be sharing more in upcoming videos!

    Hey Kim,

    I would like to know a bit more about easy to install paid traffic and
    traffic methods which are easy to implement and which don’t need to much time daily to keep consistant traffic flowing. I know that sounds a lot but maybe you can teach something like that.

    Howdy again

    Having concentrated on somewhat Blackhat SEO my site has probably been de-listed by most search engine sites. This happened because I was following courses that told me to do this. Obviously I now know that I shouldn’t have done this, nor followed SEO in general as my site is a typical Google hated site. My public question is – If I start a local business orientated site, and have created what is essentially a local search engine, without using typical SEO how would you point traffic at this localized site without looking “dodgy” :)

    Thanks again for reading :)

      Awesome Michael!

      Which market are you in?

      Pinterest tends to be best for certain markets.

      We’ve also noticed that it’s been ranking extremely well in Google. So it’s also a great 3rd part platform to rank on via SEO.

    Hi Kim,

    What do you think about the new strategy Ryan Deiss is talking about? The strategy is to pay reputable bloggers to guest post on your blog.

    • KimRoach 2 April 2013 at 10:11 am Permalink

      Ryan has an awesome strategy for sure!

      I mean it’s really kind of common sense. Plus, it takes a
      lot of the writing load off of you as well.

      I’m definitely a fan :)

    Hi Kim,

    I am wondering if there is any particular reason why you are not including Google Adwords in your pipeline.



  68. Michael Dorey 2 April 2013 at 8:02 pm Permalink

    Hey Kim! Nice to talk to you again! Short story, I paid for traffic recently (50,000 visitors). The company sent me maybe 3000 visitors over 30 days then just stopped! I certainly didn’t get what I paid for. I complained, but they just gave me an excuse and now they don’t answer my emails! Anyway, my question; ” Is it worth it to pay for traffic”? Are there any reputable traffic companies?

      Hello Michael: I don’t know you, but having been ripped off so many times in this life as well as by attorneys and the medical folks and chiro’s. I feel for you, and there should be some agency in order to police these thieves. Maybe shut them down for unethical biz practices. Best regards Alex Bari, isn’t Kim super?

      Hello Michael Dorey!!! Sorry to hear your story but this how is works online.there are so many Scam artists trying to rip off people’s money.Forget about this company.Never invest money you are not willing to lose.Always proceed with a small amount of fund.This is my advice to you.And don’t give up.

    Hi Kim,

    I would be interested in how you exactly build these deep sales funnels with email marketing.

    Do you keep them short, then have a link to your blog? Also how do you sell to people on your list without being to direct like a car salesman?

  70. Katie 3 April 2013 at 1:09 am Permalink

    Facebook advertising is something I’m interested in cos it’s really confusing to me. (too many options!)

  71. Louise 3 April 2013 at 7:41 pm Permalink

    So many people want everything free and look to gain a huge return without investment. Where else can you achieve that in life? Building a business online is the same as in the real world – you must build rapport, establish trust, offer a lot for little and gradually people will buy from you repeatedly whatever your pricing as long as you continue to offer good value. You can pay out for advertising but unless you really have a great product or service people want you’re not going to achieve good results. It’s like being a salesman: choose a product that is so good it sells itself!

    So I think paid advertising has its place but you need to promote in places relevant to your offer: will readers already be seeking your offer before they read your ad? Again, there is a lot of quality free promotion you can do online such as tweeting, facebook status updates, free ebooks, writing on blogs: neither throw money at the wall expecting a return, nor expect something for nothing through free ads.

    Really think your market and your offer through – who are the movers and groovers? Who has influence – who has the power to recommend your offer to thousands of buying clients? You need to network with these people and build a reputation for expertise and providing value first. That often means giving something away, like a free meal voucher. But in the history of advertising this method of giving first is what pays the big dividends and gets sales. Long term customers who are drawn to you.

    Even free promotions have a price: they cost you time. You need to think things through. Get to know your market – the buyers and the sellers. Can you provide a new solution? Be a solution provider and you will get endless traffic through recommendations and tweets.

    Where does the traffic currently flow? Throw your offer there!

    Hello Kim!

    Since I have a brand new small niche blog (but it’s not a one-shot-sale thing, but continuous) I’d like to know how to get traffic for this virgin blog :D from paid sources, but still affordable and have a good ROI since my fund is tight. hahaha…

    You know, like CPM, PPV, and second tier search engine. I always want to learn this but dunno which good source that will provide quality traffic

    Also I wonder how to get solo ads in all-niches like this. Not just to big niche like IM or weight loss, but a wide range of niche

    Thank you for reading! And thank you for caring! ^_^
