WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Part 4 (Automation)

This is part 4 of a 5-part series on how to create an automated traffic generation system for your WordPress site. This tutorial shows you how to set up a number of plugins that will help drive traffic automatically to your WordPress site.

Web Site Traffic Blueprint Part 4 - How To Drive More Web Traffic For Your Business With WordPressWelcome to Part 4 of our Website Traffic Blueprint article series, where we show you how to create an automated web traffic generation machine using the WordPress CMS.

So far, we have covered the following in this series:

In Part One of this article series, we provided an overview of the traffic automation process, and explained why using an expertly configured WordPress website is the key to automating traffic to your website …

With an expertly configured WordPress web site, all you have to do is post new content on a regular basis to automatically bring more web traffic!

(With an expertly configured WordPress web site, all you have to do is add web content regularly to automatically start generating web traffic!)

In Part Two, we discuss the setup phase of this system. We explain the best way to get started if you don’t have a website yet, how to set everything up if you already have a site, and what to do if your existing website is built with WordPress.

Where to set up a WordPress website or blog on your domain

(In Part 2 we show you how to set up WordPress on your domain)

In Part Three, we focused on important configuration decisions.

Here, we configure all the settings that can affect your site’s ability to generate traffic automatically …

Where to set up a WordPress website on your domain

(In Part 3 you learn how to configure hosting settings, internal settings, and external settings that affect your site’s ability to generate traffic automatically)

In Part 4, we discuss ways to automate the traffic system with WordPress plugins.

Why You Should Automate The Traffic Generation Process

Depending on who you listen to, you could find yourself investing a couple of hours or more per day promoting your business on social media.

Many small businesses lack the time, human resources and financial means to engage in the kind of content marketing that many marketing experts advise doing. If you are spending half your day checking Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook in addition to researching and writing content for your blog or website, how does anything in your business get done?

Keeping a business up and running is how most small business owners spend their time.

(Small business owners spend most of their working hours keeping their businesses up and running. Source: National Federation Of Independent Businesses)

Small business owners spend most of their working hours keeping their businesses up and running. On top of this, there’s also sales and marketing. After all, businesses need to remain competitive and grow in order to survive.

Research done in 2012 by VerticalResponse – an email and social media marketing company, found that:

  • 43% of all businesses surveyed spent at least six hours per week on social media (most of the other businesses surveyed that used social media spent even more time – between 6 and 21+ hours per week). This usage of social media was a 66% increase from the previous year, so if the same research was done today, the figures would most likely be higher.
  • More than half of all small businesses surveyed spent 1-3 hours or more creating a blog post.
  • Finding and posting content for social media consumed the most time online.

Small businesses spend more time every year marketing and promoting themselves online.

(Small businesses spend more time every year marketing and promoting themselves online. Image source: VerticalResponse.com)

As small businesses spend increasingly larger amounts of time promoting and marketing themselves online in order to compete and survive, this puts more and more of a squeeze on businesses to prioritize their time on other vital areas …

Businesses with limited resources, budgets, and time and many different business areas to focus on need to plan their marketing strategy very carefully.

(Businesses with limited marketing budget, time, and resources and many different business areas to focus on require careful planning of their marketing strategy.)

Another important thing to consider is that, in addition to spending time promoting and marketing your business on a number of social sites, you are investing all of your efforts into virtual real estate that you have no control over. You don’t own Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube. These sites often will make decisions that affect your business without consulting you. Why invest so much time and effort building a business on someone else’s real estate? With a self-hosted WordPress website, you can have complete control of your own real estate and post your content automatically to other online properties.

Automating systems and process to save time is nothing new. Businesses have been doing it ever since the dawn of the Industrial Age. In the Digital Age, however, the increased availability of hundreds of new online marketing channels creates a number of dilemmas for small business owners, especially for those with limited resources, marketing budget, and time. For example:

  • Which marketing channels do you invest more time, budget, and efforts on?
  • Should you invest so much time and effort building a web presence on other people’s sites (e.g. YouTube, LinkedIn, Tumblr, etc.) while ignoring the benefits of building content on your own website?
  • Do you create new content for every channel you plan to market and promote your business on?

The Benefits Of Automating The Traffic Generation With WordPress

What I’d like to show you now, is a free, simple, and effective strategy for automating your traffic-getting process with WordPress.

With this method, you will be able to:

  • Save time creating web content and social media,
  • Save money on content creation and unnecessary web marketing costs,
  • Determine which marketing channels you should invest more of your time, budget, and efforts on,
  • Invest most of your time and efforts building your own asset and still benefit from other people’s marketing channels.

Info

Many automated traffic solutions tend to focus on black hat methods, such as manipulating search engine results. This is not what the focus of this article series is about. In fact, we urge you to avoid using black hat methods, sites, software, and anything designed to flaunt or violate the policies and terms of service of sites like Google, YouTube, Facebook, etc..

Web traffic automation doesn't require using black hat techniques!

(Automating your web traffic doesn’t require using black hat methods!)

What we are focusing in this series of articles is not to game online services or bypass their terms of service, but to show you how to be smart with your resources and automate your content distribution in order to leverage your time and efforts, and get additional exposure online from sites frequented by your target audience.

An Automated Content Distribution, Traffic And Lead Generation, And Sales & Marketing System

As we’ve just seen in the previous section, most business owners lack the time, human resources and budget to engage in the kind of content marketing that many online experts are prescribing. What you want to do, then, is be strategic with your limited budget, resources, and time.

So, instead of choosing this approach, which is very time-consuming …

Posting content to marketing channels one at a time is very time-consuming!

(Posting content to different marketing channels one at a time is extremely time-consuming!)

Why not opt for this approach instead …

Set up an automated content distribution, lead and traffic generation, and sales and marketing system with WordPress

(Set up an automated content distribution, lead and traffic generation, and sales and marketing system with WordPress)

With an expertly configured WordPress site, you can build more than just a website for your business … you can set up an automated traffic and lead generation and sales & marketing system, where all you do is publish your content and WordPress then automates the rest.

With WordPress, you can publish content one-time, and automate your content distribution to all other services.

You can:

  • Distribute content automatically to social media channels and bookmarking sites,
  • Automatically distribute comments and content to other blogs and web properties using RSS
  • Automatically import content (e.g. videos)

As your business evolves, you can add more functionality and automate processes like:

You can do all of this using inexpensive WordPress plugins. Once these plugins are installed and configured on your site, just direct your visitors to the appropriate sections (e.g. your store, subscription forms, membership area, etc.)

How do you get all this done?

Simple … first, set up your website or blog as explained in Part 2. Then, configure it as shown in Part Three. After all this is in place, you can then connect all of the dots using plugins such as the ones shown below.

The video below shows you how everything works once your WordPress site has been expertly configured …

WordPress Web Traffic Blueprint – Plugins

Let’s take a look now at some examples of WordPress plugins that can help to:

  • Post content to social media sites and social bookmarking accounts
  • Post comments automatically to other blogs
  • Post content automatically to other online properties via RSS

Jetpack Plugin

You can get your posts automatically distributed to sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, GooglePlus, LinkedIn and more as soon as you publish new content using a plugin like JetPack.

CommentLuv

CommentLuv

(CommentLuv)

WordPress has a native commenting feature that lets your visitors engage with your web site, post new comments, reply to other users and participate in discussions.

You can expand the WordPress default commenting feature using a third-party plugin like Disqus, IntenseDebate, LiveFyre, or CommentLuv that integrates with social media, helping to share and spread your content around.

For example, using a plugin like CommentLuv (Premium version) can help attract more comments and create more user engagement on your web site. The plugin encourages readers to comment using SEO and social rewards like the ability to add twitter names to comments, search-indexable backlinks, ability to use keywords in the user name, and social enticements for sharing your content. This plugin will visit the comment author’s website or blog while they enter their comment and retrieve their last blog posts, which they can include at the bottom of their comment after clicking the submit button.

CommentLuv can encourage a greater level of commenting and create more user engagement on your web site.

WordPress Traffic System – Systems

In addition to getting your WordPress site expertly configured, generating traffic successfully on a consistent basis is the result of a clear business vision, careful digital planning, and excellent systems in place.

Generating consistent traffic is the result of business vision, planning, and systems

(Consistent traffic is the result of a business vision, planning, and great systems)

Let’s review briefly the systems that will help you grow and manage this traffic.

These systems include:

  • Marketing Systems – The processes and strategies used to drive new traffic to your business.
  • Technical Systems – How you keep your digital presence optimized for receiving new traffic.
  • Business Systems – The systems and processes used to manage and respond to new traffic.

Use systems to grow, automate, optimize, and manage your traffic

(Use systems to grow, automate, optimize, and manage your traffic)

Let’s briefly review the importance of the above systems:

Marketing Systems

Your marketing systems consist of the processes and strategies used to create traffic for your business. Your online marketing systems can be tested by asking questions such as:

  • What channels will you use to drive traffic (e.g. blogging, PPC advertising, video marketing, etc)?
  • How will you assign your budget and resources to these marketing channels?
  • How will you create your content, sales funnels, and marketing campaigns?
  • How will you measure the ROI of your campaigns?

During the setup and configuration phase, you would have installed an analytics program (e.g. Google Analytics). If you’re just starting out, you may want to consider investing in some paid advertising to help generate some initial actionable data, such as the keyword phrases people are searching online to find your site, which you can use to create content better targeted to your audience’s needs.

Technical Systems

Your technical systems and processes ensure that your online presence remains up and running for receiving traffic. There’s no point sending traffic to your website if your site is constantly down or your web pages take a long time to load.

Your technical systems need to adequately handle technical areas like webhosting, website maintenance and support, installing and updating new software (e.g. plugins), customization, integration, troubleshooting, etc.

You can test your technical systems by questions such as:

  • Who looks after my server?
  • Who is looking after my website and keeping my site maintained and up-to-date?
  • Who will fix errors, troubleshoot problems, provide technical support and advice, etc. if you experience difficulties?

Many potential problems can be minimized if your website planning process and setup and configuration phases have been completed correctly. Like all technology, however, you should expect new problems to arise. Your technical systems need to be able to handle these.

Business Systems

You need good business systems and processes in place to help you manage and respond to the influx of traffic. This includes:

  • Communication systems
  • Resources management – human, financial
  • Handling sales inquiries
  • Order fulfillment
  • Customer service/training
  • etc.

If you plan to outsource your digital marketing and technical services, then you will need to put systems in place for managing all outsourcing processes.

WordPress Web Traffic Automation System – Traffic Optimization Tools And Strategies

With clear business objectives and great systems in place, all you need to do is to develop a “traffic loop”.

Let’s go through an example of how to implement, optimize, and further automate a traffic loop. Take a look at the processes illustrated below …

Implement, automate, and optimize a traffic loop

(An effective traffic loop)

Increase Reach And Visibility Online

The first step of the process is to get your business exposed to as many members of your target audience as your resources allow.

Useful Tips And Ideas
  • An expertly configured WordPress site will allow you to automatically publish your content on places like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. The easiest way to increase your reach and visibility online, therefore, is to simply publish more content through your expertly configured WordPress site.
  • As mentioned earlier, investing in some paid advertising can help you generate some initial data, which you can use to create web content targeted specifically to your audience’s needs.
  • Repurpose your content to leverage the power and reach of different media formats.
  • Continue learning about ways to increase more web site traffic using methods like Pinterest advertising, podcasts, cross promotions, etc.
Plugins, Tools, And Strategies

See previous sections of this article series for many useful tools, plugins, and strategies we’ve already covered to help you reach more members of your target audience.

Also, if you haven’t already, learn more about WordPress plugins that allow you to easily add the following to your website or blog:

  • Share your comments and posts online,
  • Run contests, offer discounts/downloads for likes/shares,
  • Accept user generated content, feeds, etc.
  • Publish and distribute content online in various media formats (e.g. videos, PDF guides, infographics, etc.)

Build Authority And Credibility

Getting more of your content published is good, but for this activity to be really effective, your content needs to be building authority and credibility with users.

Publishing authoritative content improves your chances of getting more shares and views and hence more visitors.

Useful Tips
  • Create and publish content that will add value to your audience and showcase your expertise. This includes content that educates and informs readers, training content, case studies, adding testimonials, etc.
  • Consider publishing educational guides or special reports that can be sold or distributed online (e.g. sell on Clickbank.
Plugins, Tools, & Methods

We have created an entire course on content creation that you can plug into for free here:

Also, ask us about plugins that let you easily add the following to your website or blog:

Grow Influence & Engagement

As your business grows, you may want to consider developing “traffic on demand.” You can achieve this by building a list or starting a network.

With “Traffic On Tap,” most of your traffic will come from an audience of existing customers or subscribers – people who already like you and trust you. Your influence and reputation can be used to generate new traffic with every blog post you publish, forum post you add, or broadcast you send out.

Useful Tips
  • Encourage users to leave comments and start discussions on your site.
  • Add an email newsletter and encourage people to subscribe.
  • Add a paid or free membership site.
  • Create or join a Facebook/LinkedIn Group.
Tools, Plugins, & Strategies

Many solutions and plugins are available that are easy to implement and can help grow your online influence and improve engagement. For example:

  • Autoresponders (e.g. Aweber, GetResponse, etc.)
  • Contact Forms, Live Chat
  • Forums & Social Communities (e.g. bbPress, BuddyPress)
  • Polls and Surveys
  • Webinars (e.g. Webinar JEO)
  • Comment sharing
  • Add media, video galleries, etc.

Identify Needs/Problems & Provide Solutions

By taking advantage of incoming traffic to discover what problems your visitors are trying to solve, you should have no problem coming up with ideas for new products, services, and solutions, all of which can provide you with new opportunities to generate additional web traffic.

Tips
  • Create an online training program.
  • Publish educational guides or special reports that you can sell or distribute online (e.g. sell on on the Amazon Kindle book store.
  • Add e-commerce to your business.
Tools And Strategies

If you plan to provide products and services online (as opposed to just providing information), then some of the more useful plugins you may want to consider adding to your site include:

Analyze Data & Feedback

The final step of the process is to collect and analyze data. By interpreting data gathered from existing traffic, you can discover new traffic opportunities.

Hopefully, by now you already have installed an analytics program (e.g. Google Analytics) on your website. Make sure you can also understand the data.

WordPress Traffic System – Summary

Once you implement the above strategies, all you have to do is repeat the cycle, fine-tuning and refining your methods as you go to grow your traffic and improve your results.

In summary:

  • Start with an expertly configured WordPress site backed by good marketing, technical and business systems,
  • Implement a content marketing strategy (consider also investing in some paid advertising to drive traffic and generate useful data) to increase your reach and visibility online,
  • Add plugins, list-building strategies, and other methods if necessary to help build authority and credibility, and also to improve engagement with visitors,
  • Promote any new solutions, products or services using your existing channels and strategies to generate additional streams of traffic,
  • Analyse your data and your results, automate your processes wherever possible, and begin the cycle again.

Hopefully, now you have a blueprint that will help you automate and optimize the process of driving visitors to your website and build a better business online.
