Why You Need to Start Using this FREE Traffic Source for Your Business RIGHT NOW?

This FREE Traffic Source is a must, if you run a business or you are promoting affiliate offers


I am talking about IG; Instagram, why is it better than Facebook?

The answer is – organic reach! Instagram provides around 30% organic reach vs Facebook that will show your post to only a single digit % of your followers.

That’s why I’ve made it a focus to work on growing my instagram profile, and I started sharing some awesome tips how you can too.

A free traffic source like IG should be part of your promotion arsenal, no matter what type of offers you promote, or what kind of business you run.

Here’s a post I’ve published a week ago where I explain how to grow your followers with real, highly engaged people. > Read it Here <

I’ve been publishing a lot of photos old and new and playing around with special tags on how to drive more likes and engagement. You can check my insta right here.

Been learning a lot, for one there’s an awesome tool called Display Purposes that will generate highly relevant and popular hashtags you can just cut n paste. It’s totally free too.

To drive traffic to my blog from instagram, I decided to get some templates made in PSD that I can just edit quickly, then publish with a relevant description, hashtags, and a link back to my blog.

James Van Elswyk said the best way to go about getting into new things is to hire experts from the start, so I decided to just go on Fiverr and hire 2 different people to make me these, as these guys (based on their feedback) done thousands upon thousands of IG ads; and know what colorscheme/style works best to get high CTR. Which by the way is uber important; because more click throughs = more likes = more followers and more engagement.

Why placing pixels on your company website/blog is a MUST!

Placing pixels on your site is a MUST if you are a blogger, company owner, webmaster or affiliate!

Why is this so highly recommended?   The answer is simple,  by pixeling your site early on you will start building custom audiences of people that engage with your content.     Think of this as the best way to ‘get a discount’ on any potential paid advertising you might do in the future.

If you have a new product or service that you want to market; rather than shooting in the dark, you can start running ads to your custom audience that the pixel helped build right away and harness the power of marketing to your existing customers.  It’s a fact in business that your past customers are the best ones to sell to, because they already bought from you, know you and trust you therefore it will be easier to make the sale vs cold calling, cold contacting brand new customers and audiences out there.

Having a pixel on your site will also allow you to generate lookalike audiences,  this is very powerful of platforms like Google and Facebook as they have millions of data points about everyone that uses their system, and know your customer better than you do.  Generating a lookalike will look at all the likes, favorite things, business practices, contacts, etc of people that visited your site, thus triggered your pixel, and then generate an audience that looks just like them – you can then target these people and see way better return on your ad spend,  a sort of discount on your cost per lead if you will.


Same goes for us aff marketers, if you run any kind of offers, slap the pixels on the prelanders, start building the audiences so you can scale them easily. One thing we do internally is setup events, like onClick button to execute special conversion pixels, and then we build lookalikes off these. You can do these kind of tricks using javascript quite easily. I have a guide on my blog about how to do just this right here.

I’ve been blogging for 5 years and wasn’t smart enough to implement the pixels at the beginning,   it’s better late than never!   If you haven’t implemented the pixels yet either, its not too late.  Do it right now.

You will want the following pixels added to your site:

-Facebook Pixel
-Google Pixel

Some other ones you might want are:
-Outbrain Pixel
-Taboola Pixel
-AdRoll Pixel
-Yahoo Gemini Pixel
-Bing Pixel
-Twitter Ads
-Amazong Ads


How to Build Highly Engaged Followers on Instagram for FREE

I have been a member on Instagram for a bit now, but never really used it.   I didn’t need ‘another Facebook’; however since Facebook is going ape shit crazy banning everything these days;  the only way to ‘stay alive’ is to accept the hard facts and pivot/adjust/get with the program.  One of my ways of adapting to these changes (thanks Zuck!) is to diversify onto other traffic sources for my brand.       Introducing Instagram…

Why IG?  IG has amazing organic reach atm as its still a platform in the growth stage.   Whilst Facebook has killed off organic reach and they want you to pretty much pay for everything these days (and then they ban you).. on IG you can still get a lot of free reach if you share useful content and interesting photos/videos that are targeted towards your audience.

Now the question is how to build engaged followers?  I mean no one wants fake IG followers that never like/comment or interact with what you post, that’s useless…  however a lot of people still buy fake followers to look big… I personally prefer the real deal, real, highly engaged followers.

So how do we get them?   Here’s what I learned in the past week of reading and trying various ways… this is the best way I’ve found thus far..

Let’s say …  If you are an affiliate marketer like me,   you can make a list of hash tags that only affiliate marketers would use, for example #stmforum #charlesngo #voluum #affiliateworldeurope etc

Then you search on Instagram for these hashtags, and click it.  Then click the first image that appears and you will right away see posts from real affiliates that used these hash tags.

Next, there’s a follow link next to their name on the right… click this, and you will now follow them, and chances are they will follow you back.

Engage with their pictures,  like it, and comment on it, to increase your chances of them reciprocating and commenting on your posts and liking your updates, etc.

I just started doing this, but the response has been amazing.      It is working and I am networking with affiliate marketers that understand our ‘affiliate speak’ so my posts are getting more engagement, and my followers are growing.

Try it 🙂 It really works and it’s free (just takes time)
