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 Four - A Complete Guide To Getting More Traffic To Your Business AutomaticallyWelcome to Part Four of our Web Traffic Blueprint article series, where we show you how to create an automated web traffic machine using the WordPress CMS platform.

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

In Part 1, we described the traffic automation process, and explained why using an expertly configured WordPress website or blog is the key to automating traffic to your website …

With an expertly configured WordPress website, all you have to do to automatically drive traffic is post content consistently!

(With an expertly configured WordPress website, all you have to do is add web content consistently to begin bringing more web traffic!)

In Part Two, we discussed the setup phase. We helped you understand the best way to start 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 site was built using WordPress.

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

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

In Part Three, we discuss the configuration phase.

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

Where to set up WordPress on your domain

(In Part Three you will configure all the settings (hosting, WordPress and external) that can affect your website’s ability to generate traffic automatically)

In Part 4, we look at ways to automate traffic to your website with different plugins.

Why Automate The Traffic-Getting Process?

Depending on who you listen to, you could end up trying to spend an hour or two per day (or more) promoting your business on social media, as well as managing your business, your content and your web presence.

Most business owners lack the time, resources and financial means to run a full-time marketing and content creation department and engage in the kind of content marketing that many marketing experts advise doing. If you are spending half your day posting updates on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn in addition to researching and writing articles for your website or blog, how will you get anything in your business done?

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

(Small business owners spend most of their time keeping their businesses up and running. Image source: NFIB)

Small businesses spend most of their working hours trying to keep their businesses up and running. In addition to running a business, there’s also sales and marketing. After all, businesses need to stay competitive and make sales in order to survive.

A study of small businesses conducted by VerticalResponse – an email and social media marketing company, found that:

  • 43% of all businesses surveyed spent at least 6 hours each week on social media (the rest 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 conducted today, the numbers would most likely be even higher.
  • More than half of all small businesses surveyed spent 1-3 hours or more to create a blog post.
  • Finding and posting content for social media was their most time-consuming online activity.

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

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

As businesses spend more time on online marketing as a matter of business survival and competition, this puts more and more pressure on businesses to prioritize their time on other equally vital areas …

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

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

Another 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 Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. These companies can make decisions that can dramatically impact your business without consulting you. Why invest so much effort and time building content on someone else’s real estate? With WordPress (self-hosted), you can have complete control of your own real estate and publish your content automatically to other online accounts.

Automating business systems and processes to save time and increase productivity is nothing new. Businesses of all sizes have been doing it ever since the dawn of the Industrial Age. In the Digital Age, however, the availability of many new channels for marketing and promoting a business creates a number of dilemmas for business owners and business managers, especially for those with limited marketing budgets, resources, and time. For example:

  • Which channels do you invest more budget, efforts, and time on?
  • Should you invest so much time and effort building assets on sites that you do not own (e.g. YouTube, LinkedIn, Tumblr, etc.) while ignoring 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 show you now, is a free, simple, and effective method that lets you automate the traffic-getting process with WordPress.

With this strategy, you will be able to:

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

Important

Many automated web 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 software, websites, techniques, and anything that violates the terms of service and policies of companies like Facebook, Google, Pinterest, etc..

Web traffic automation does not require the use of black hat techniques!

(Automating your web traffic doesn’t need to involve the use of black hat methods!)

What we are focusing here is not to game online services or bypass their terms of service, but to show you how to automate your content distribution so you can leverage your time and marketing efforts, and get additional exposure online from sites that your target audience frequents.

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

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

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

Posting content to marketing channels one by one can be very time-consuming!

(Posting content to services individually can be very time-consuming!)

Why not opt for a smarter, time-saving strategy like the one shown below 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 once, and automate your content distribution to all other services.

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 it all configured as explained in Part 3. Once all of this is in place, you then automate these processes using plugins.

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

WordPress Traffic Automation System – Traffic Plugins

Let’s take a look now at a number of WordPress plugins that can:

  • Distribute content to social sites and social bookmarking sites
  • Distribute comments automatically to other blogs
  • Distribute content automatically via RSS feeds to other online properties

Jetpack by WordPress.com

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

Jetpack

Jetpack is a free WordPress plugin with many great features.

After installing Jetpack, connect the plugin to the WordPress.com account set up in Part 3

(As soon as you publish, your posts are automatically syndicated online.)

Jetpack provides a hands-free, automated way to create more exposure online for your content on social media websites.

CommentLuv

CommentLuv

(CommentLuv)

The WordPress native commenting feature allows your site users to interact with your website or blog, post comments, reply to existing comments and engage with your content as part of an online community.

You can enhance the WordPress built-in commenting feature with 3rd-party plugins that integrate your comments with social media, helping to share and spread them online.

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

CommentLuv can encourage a greater level of commenting and improve user engagement on your website.

(Publish content once and automate your content distribution to all other services!)

In this section of the WordPress web traffic automation blueprint series, we discuss ways to optimize traffic generation using various tools and methods.

WordPress Traffic System – Traffic Optimization Systems

In addition to getting your WordPress website or blog expertly configured, the key to generating targeted traffic on a consistent basis is having a clear business vision, careful digital planning, and good systems and process in place.

Automating traffic is the result of business vision, sound planning, and excellent systems

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

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

These systems include:

  • Marketing Systems – How you drive new traffic to your business.
  • Technical Systems – How you ensure that your web presence remains optimized for receiving traffic.
  • Business Systems – How you manage and respond to new traffic.

Systems help you grow, automate, and manage your traffic

(Systems help you grow 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 new traffic for your website. Your online marketing systems can be tested by asking questions such as:

  • What is your content marketing/online marketing strategy?
  • How will you assign your budget and resources to these channels?
  • How will you create your content, sales funnels, 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 to help generate some data, such as the keyword phrases people are searching online to find your website, which you can use to create web content targeted specifically to your audience’s needs.

Technical Systems

Your technical systems and processes keep your online presence optimized for receiving new traffic. There’s no point sending traffic to your site if your site is constantly down or your pages take a long time to load.

Your systems include handling 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 maintained and up-to-date?
  • Who will fix errors, troubleshoot problems, provide technical support and advice, etc. should issues occur?

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

Business Systems

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

  • Communication systems
  • Managing human and financial resources
  • Handling leads and sales inquiries
  • Order fulfillment
  • Customer training/service
  • etc.

If you intend to outsource your digital marketing and technical maintenance, then make sure you have implemented great systems for managing all outsourcing.

WordPress Traffic Automation Blueprint – Optimizing Traffic Generation

With clear business objectives and great systems in place, all you need to focus your efforts on is implementing, optimizing and further automating a “traffic loop”.

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

Traffic loop

(WordPress can help you implement, optimize, and automate a traffic loop)

Increase Reach & Visibility Online

The first step of the process is to increase visibility for your website.

Tips
  • Your expertly configured WordPress site allows you to instantly share your content on traffic-getting sources like Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus, etc. The easiest way to increase your reach and visibility online, therefore, is to simply publish more content online.
  • As mentioned earlier, investing in some paid advertising (e.g. Facebook ads) can help you generate some initial actionable and intelligent 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.
  • Repurpose your content to leverage the power and reach of different media formats.
  • Continue learning about ways to attract more traffic using methods like Twitter advertising, videos, forum signatures, etc.
Tools, Plugins, And Methods

See earlier sections of this tutorial series for many useful plugins, tools, and strategies we’ve already covered to help you reach more potential users.

Also, if you haven’t already, see other posts and tutorials on this site to learn more about plugins that allow you to easily add the following to your WordPress website or blog:

  • Share your comments and posts online with others,
  • 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 & Credibility

Getting more of your content out there is a great first step, but for this activity to be really effective, your content needs to be building authority and credibility with visitors.

Publishing better quality content not only helps to establish your credibility, it also improves your chances of getting more shares and views and hence more traffic.

Useful Tips & Ideas
  • Create and publish content that adds value to potential users and that showcases your expertise. This includes content that educates and informs readers, training content, user reviews, adding testimonials, etc.
  • Consider publishing instructional PDF guides that can be sold or distributed online (e.g. sell on Amazon.
Tools And Strategies

We have created a comprehensive email course on content creation that you can plug into for free here:

Also, contact us to learn more about plugins that allow you to easily add the following to your website:

Grow Influence And Engagement

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

With “Traffic On Demand,” your traffic comes from customers or subscribers – people who already know you and trust you. Your influence and reputation can be used to generate new traffic with every post you publish, forum post you add, or email you send out.

Useful Tips
  • Encourage commenting and discussions on your site.
  • Add an autoresponder training course and encourage people to subscribe.
  • Add a paid, free, or ‘freemium’ membership site.
  • Create or join an online group on Facebook/LinkedIn.
Plugins, Tools, And Strategies

There are many solutions and WordPress plugins that are easy to implement and can help increase your online influence and improve engagement. For example:

  • Autoresponders/Email Newsletters (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, image galleries, etc.

Identify Problems And Provide Solutions To These

If you take advantage of incoming traffic to discover what users want, you can develop new solutions, all of which provide new opportunities to generate new streams of web traffic.

Useful Tips
  • Create a free or paid e-learning program.
  • Publish instructional PDF guides or special reports that can be sold or distributed online.
  • Add an e-commerce store to your business.
Plugins, Tools, And Strategies

If you plan to provide solutions online (as opposed to just providing information), then some of the more useful plugins you may want to consider adding 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 ways to create content that can generate you additional traffic.

Hopefully, by now you already have installed an analytics tool like Google Analytics on your website. Make sure you understand the metrics and can interpret the data.

WordPress Traffic System – Summary

All you have to do once you implement the above strategies is repeat the process over and over again, 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 (with 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 and credibility, and also to increase 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 traffic to your WordPress web site and get better results online.
