How to Get Your First 1,000 Visitors Without Spending Money | How to Get Traffic FAST


– Your first 1,000 visitors
are the most crucial. Everyone says when you start up a website, it’s easy to get your first few visitors. And that’s true. But it’s not easy to get
your first 1,000 visitors. Heck, it’s actually harder to
get your first 1,000 visitors than it is to get your
first 10,000 visitors. Hi everyone. I’m Neil Patel and
today I’m going to share how you get your first 1,000 visitors without spending money. (calming music) Before we get started,
make sure you subscribe to this channel. That way, when I release
more content like this, you’ll get notified. If you’re on YouTube, make sure you click
the alert notification. The first thing that you need to do is identify your target audience. Where are people who you want to target? Where do they hang out? What kind of content do they read? What are their interests? What are their fears? What are their goals, their motivation? What’s their typical age? What social media channel to
they engage with the most? Is there a particular gender that is most dominate in your niche? This will help you. because the last thing you want to do is create marketing campaigns and content around the wrong audience. The second thing you want to do is identify what your
ideal audience wants. Now that you know them, I
want you to go to Amazon, find books within your niche, that people are writing about and look at the two
and three star reviews. The reason you’ll look at the two and three star reviews, is people are usually complaining about
what that book is missing. People only will leave
a comment and share that and rate it really bad if they truly feel that something’s missing that’s important. That helps you figure out what people really want within your space. You can also go to Quora
and do the same thing. What are the questions within the space? You know whether there’s dog training or marketing, it doesn’t really matter. Take notes on all the questions and the answers to them because that’ll also
give you more insights. And look at the ones
that are the most voted. The ones that are the most voted tend to be the ones that do well. You also want to go to reddit. Check out the sub reddits. What is really popular
within those sub reddits in your space? Look at the top, right? Reddit usually uploads the
posts that they like the best. Because if people are uploading something and reddit community’s really picky, that means people in your
niche really do like it. Once you figure out what’s popular reddit, you want to take notes on that. You want to take notes on everything. That’ll give you ideas
on the type of content that will work really well in your space. The third step. Create the most epic,
mind blowing resource on one of these topics. Create a bullet list point, right? Every single idea that
you got from your research as it relates, you want to create a list and figure out, all right this
is what I’m going to cover into this topic. This is what everyone wants to know. Then, go to Ubersuggest and look at the content ideas report. When you’re in Ubersuggest, you’re putting those key
words in within your space. It shows you what’s really
popular, what’s not. The reason this is
important is, what’s popular is based on social charts,
back links, and search traffic. The last thing you want
to do is pick something that isn’t popular in
all of those categories. You can’t just rely on SEO traffic. You got to now look at
referral traffic and social. That’s why you have to
look at all of that. You want to bullet out all the ideas. Go through what are these pieces missing that they haven’t covered? How can I make something better? Go read the comments on these blog posts. What are people complaining about? What are people recommending? This is your opportunity
to create something that’s better, more thorough, because you have all this data
at your fingertips for free. Then, I want you to write 25 headlines. You have to. The reason being is eight out of 10 people will read your headline, but only two out of 10 will
click through and read the rest. Now of course, you’re not
going to use 25 headlines. The reason you have 25 is,
you want to eliminate 20 that you think are shitty or mediocre. You want to take the best five and then cross source your headlines. So you go to your favorite
Facebook group in your niche, you do a poll, you ask everyone, hey, which headline do you
think is the most appealing? Get their opinions. Pick the one that has the highest votes. Now, of course, if you have
a better way of modifying it, feel free to do that. But usually, you got your winner if that’s what everyone tells
you, that that’s a winner. If they all suck, people will
tell you in the Facebook poll. They’ll even give you suggestions on how you can make it better. Now of course, you’ve
created your content, you’ve gotten your headline, you’ve published it. You want to then create
a gated content upgrade. That’ll get you hundreds of social shares. That’s the next step. When you create the gated content to get you the social shares, you do this by offering a PDF, a ebook, a crash course, complimentary resource, and if you’re on Word Press, you can use OnePress Social Locker. That way, if people want
that free ebook or guide, they have to share your content to get it. In other words, you’re
going to get a ton of shares because people want access to that. That’ll get you more traffic. Then the next step, use your epic content as a promotion opportunity. See, when you write this content, you may be getting
ideas from other places, other people’s blogs. Link out to them. Let them know that you linked out to them and ask them to share your content. Ask them to link back to you. When you do this, you’ll get more traffic. If they respond saying sure, sounds good, you know, that’s great. If they say no or they ignore you, follow up with another email
with a different headline, different ask, and then go from there. Typically, if you ask for a share, it’s easier and you’ll
get a higher take rate than if you ask for a link back. Link back helps you with referral traffic and search rankings in the long run. Social shares typically give you that quicker instantaneous boost and most people are believed
to do that at least. The sixth step that
guarantees long term traffic is to have push notifications
enabled on your site. That way, when people opt in
through the push notification and you create a new blog post, you can send a blast out to all of them and get those people back.
You can do the same thing with Mobile Monkey for Facebook Messenger. You can do the same thing for Hello Bar for email capture. When you’re doing all of this, make sure you’re also
pixeling those people using Google AdWords and Facebook. That way you can re-market to those people and continue marketing to get them back to buy your products and services. If you follow all of those tips, you’ll get your first
1,000 visitors for free without spending a single dollar. Thank you for watching. If you need help with your marketing, check out my ad agency,
