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 - Learn How To Drive More Traffic For Your BusinessWelcome to Part Four of our Website Traffic Blueprint article series, where we explain how to drive visitors automatically to your website using the WordPress CMS.

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

In Part One of this series, we explained why using an expertly configured WordPress site is the key to automating traffic to your website …

With an expertly configured WordPress website or blog, all you have to do is publish content regularly to automatically generate more web traffic!

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

In Part 2, we focused on the setup phase of the automation system. We explained the best way to get started if you don’t have a web presence yet, how to set everything up if you already have a site, and what to do if your existing website has been built using WordPress.

Where to set up WordPress on your domain

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

In Part 3, we discussed important configuration decisions.

Here, we configure hosting settings, internal settings, and external settings that can affect your site’s traffic-getting ability …

How to set up WordPress on your domain

(In Part Three you will configure all the settings that can affect your site’s traffic-getting ability)

In Part 4, we look at ways to automate traffic generation using a number of plugins.

Why It Makes Sense To Automate The Traffic Generation

Depending on who you listen to, you could find yourself trying to spend an hour or two per day (or more) posting content on social media in addition to running your business, creating content and managing your online presence.

Many businesses simply lack the time, human resources and financial means to engage in the kind of content marketing that many online marketing experts are prescribing. If you are spending hours posting updates on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter in addition to researching and writing content for your blog or website, how does anything else in your business get done?

Small business owners spend most of their time just keeping their businesses up and running.

(Keeping their business up and running is how most small businesses spend their working hours. Infographic source: NFIB)

Small business owners spend most of their time just keeping their businesses up and running. In addition to running a business, there’s sales and marketing. After all, businesses need to remain competitive and grow in order to survive.

Marketing research done in 2012 by email and social media marketing company Vertical Response found that:

  • Almost half of all businesses surveyed spent around six hours each week on social media (the rest spent even more time – between 6 and 21+ hours per week). This was a 66% increase from the previous year, so if the same survey was conducted today, the numbers would most likely be even 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 was the activity that consumed the most time online for all businesses surveyed.

Small businesses are spending more time each year marketing and promoting themselves online.

(Small businesses spend more time each year marketing and promoting themselves online. Infographic: VerticalResponse.com)

As businesses spend more time on online marketing as a matter of business survival and competition, this leaves less time for under-resourced businesses to focus on other areas …

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

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

One other 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 LinkedIn. These sites often will make decisions that can significantly affect your business without requiring your input. Why invest so much time and effort building content on someone else’s real estate? With a self-hosted WordPress site, you can have complete control of your own real estate and post your content automatically to other online properties.

Automating systems and process to leverage time and increase productivity is nothing new. Businesses have been doing it since the Industrial Age. In the Digital Age, however, the exponential growth channels for marketing and promoting a business creates a number of dilemmas for small business owners and business managers, especially for those with limited marketing budgets, resources, and time. For example:

  • Which of these channels should you focus 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, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) while ignoring the benefits of building content on your own website?
  • Do you create new content for every channel you plan to promote and market your business on?

The Benefits Of Automating The Traffic-Getting Process With WordPress

What we’d like to share with you now, is a free, simple, and effective formula that allows you to automate the traffic-getting process with WordPress.

With this formula, you will be able to:

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

Useful 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 strongly recommend avoiding black hat tools, websites, strategies, and anything that violates the terms of service and policies of sites like Google, Pinterest, Facebook, etc..

Automating your web traffic does not need to involve the use of black hat methods!

(Web traffic automation does not need to involve the use of black hat techniques!)

The purpose of this article is not to game web services or flaunt their terms of service, but to show you how to be smart with your limited resources and automate your content distribution so you can leverage your time and efforts, and increase your exposure online to websites used by your target audience.

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

We’ve just seen that most small business owners lack the time, resources and financial means to engage in the kind of content marketing that many online experts advise. What you want to do, then, is to be strategic and work smart within your limitations.

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

Posting content to different marketing channels is very time-consuming!

(Posting content to different services one at a time can be extremely time-consuming!)

Why not use a smarter, time-saving approach like this 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 once, and automate your content distribution to all other marketing channels.

You can:

  • Distribute content automatically to social media sites and social bookmarking sites,
  • Automatically distribute content (and comments) to other blogs and online 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 do all of this?

Simple … first, set up your website or blog as explained in Part Two. Then, get everything configured as explained in Part Three. Once all of this is in place, you can then automate these processes with plugins like the ones shown in the following section.

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

WordPress Traffic Automation System – Traffic-Getting Plugins

Let’s take a quick look at a number of plugins that can be used to:

  • Distribute content automatically to social sites and social bookmarking sites
  • Syndicate comments automatically to other blogs

CommentLuv

CommentLuv

(CommentLuv)

WordPress has a built-in commenting function that allows your visitors to interact with your website or blog, post comments, reply to existing comments and participate in discussions.

You can enhance the WordPress built-in commenting feature using a third-party plugin that integrates your comments with social media, helping to spread and share them around.

For example, with a WordPress plugin like CommentLuv (Pro version), you can make your blog more attractive to commenters by offering them a wider choice of backlinks if they tweet, like, or +1 your content. This plugin will visit the comment author’s website or blog while they enter their comment and retrieve their most recent blog posts, which they can choose to include below their comment when they click the submit button.

CommentLuv Premium version can help attract more comments and web traffic and create more user engagement on your website or blog.

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

WordPress Web Traffic Automation Blueprint – Traffic Optimization Systems

In addition to getting your WordPress website expertly configured, the key to generating high-quality traffic consistently is having a well-defined business vision, careful digital planning, and excellent systems in place.

Generating consistent traffic is the product of business vision, sound planning, and great systems

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

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

These systems include:

  • Marketing Systems – The processes and strategies used to drive new traffic to your website.
  • Technical Systems – How you keep your web presence up and running for receiving traffic.
  • Business Systems – The systems used to manage and respond to traffic.

Systems help you grow, automate, and manage your traffic

(Systems help you grow, automate, and manage your web traffic)

Let’s review the above systems briefly:

Marketing Systems

Your marketing systems consist of the processes and methods used to drive new traffic to your business. You can test your online marketing systems by asking questions such as:

  • What channels do you plan to use to generate traffic (e.g. blogging, video marketing, etc)?
  • How will you apply your budget and resources to these channels?
  • Who will create your content and run your marketing campaigns?
  • How will you track conversions and measure the results 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 (e.g. Facebook ads) to help you generate some initial actionable data, such as the keywords people are searching online to find your site, which you can use to create web content better targeted to your audience’s needs.

Technical Systems

Your technical systems and processes keep your digital presence operating efficiently for receiving new traffic. There’s no point sending traffic to your website if your site is experiencing problems or your web pages take a very long time to load.

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

You can test your technical systems by questions such as:

  • Who is looking after my webhosting?
  • Who will look after my website and keep my site, plugins, themes, etc. maintained and up-to-date?
  • Who will fix errors, troubleshoot problems, provide technical support and advice, etc. should any issues occur?

Many potential issues can be minimized if your planning and setup and configuration phases have been done correctly. Like all technology, however, you can expect new problems to arise. You will need the right technical systems in place to handle these.

Business Systems

You need good business systems and processes in place to help you manage the influx of new traffic. These include:

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

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

WordPress Web Traffic Blueprint – Traffic Optimization

With clear business objectives and great systems in place, all you need to focus on is how to grow and optimize your “traffic loop”.

Let’s walk through an example of implementing, optimizing, and automating a traffic loop. Take a look at the chart below …

An effective traffic loop

(Implementing an effective traffic loop)

Increase Reach And Visibility

The first step of the process is to get your business exposed to as many potential users as you can.

Traffic Tips
  • An expertly configured WordPress site allows you to instantly notify and publicize your content to traffic-getting sources like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. The easiest way to increase your reach and visibility online, therefore, is to simply publish more content.
  • As mentioned earlier, investing in some paid advertising (e.g. Google AdWords) can help you generate some initial actionable and intelligent data, which you can use to create web content better targeted to your audience’s needs.
  • Repurpose your content to leverage different media formats.
  • Continue learning about ways to attract more web site visitors using methods like Twitter advertising, YouTube, forum signatures, etc.
Plugins, Tools, And Strategies

We’ve already covered a number of excellent plugins, tools, and strategies in earlier sections of this tutorial series.

Also, if you haven’t already, learn more about plugins that let you easily add the following to your site:

  • Share your posts online,
  • Run contests, offer discounts/downloads for shares/likes,
  • Display user generated content, feeds, etc.
  • Distribute content online in different media formats (e.g. videos, PDF guides, audio, etc.)

Build Authority & Credibility

Getting more of your content out there is great, but to make this activity more effective, your content needs to build authority and credibility with your audience.

Publishing authoritative content not only helps to establish your credibility, it also improves your chances of getting it shared around and hence more visitors.

Traffic Ideas
  • Focus on creating and publishing content that will add value to potential users and showcase your expertise. This includes content that educates and informs readers, training content, case studies, adding testimonials, etc.
  • Consider publishing a special report that can be sold or distributed online (e.g. sell on on the Amazon Kindle store.
Tools, Plugins, And Methods

We have created a comprehensive email course on how to develop a content marketing strategy, how to promote your business with content, and ways to never run out of new content ideas that you can plug into at no cost here:

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

Grow Influence And Engagement

As your business grows, you may want to consider developing “traffic on demand.” You can do this by growing a list or starting your own community.

With “Traffic On Demand,” most of your traffic will come from an audience of customers or subscribers – people who already know you and trust you. Your influence and credibility can be used to generate traffic with every post you publish or email broadcast you send out.

Traffic Tips
  • Encourage users to leave comments and start discussions on your site.
  • Add an autoresponder training course and encourage people to subscribe.
  • Add a free or paid membership site, online forum, or social community.
  • Start or join a Facebook/LinkedIn Group.
Plugins, Tools, & Strategies

There are many solutions and plugins that can help grow your influence and improve user engagement. For example:

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

Identify Needs And Provide Solutions

By taking advantage of incoming traffic to listen to what users need, you should have no problem coming up with ideas for new services, products, and solutions, all of which provide new opportunities to generate new sources of web traffic.

Useful Tips & Ideas
  • Create an online training course.
  • Consider publishing special guides that can be sold or distributed online.
  • Consider adding an e-commerce store to your site.
Plugins, Tools, And Methods

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

Analyze Data & Feedback

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

You should have already installed an analytics program (e.g. Google Analytics) on your site. 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 same process, fine-tuning and refining your methods as you go to grow your traffic and get better your results.

In summary:

  • Begin 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 initial traffic and generate useful data) to increase your reach and visibility online,
  • Add plugins, list-building strategies, and other methods if required to build authority, trust, and credibility, and also to improve engagement with users,
  • 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 get better results online.
