Generating traffic will become the driving force in your life, whatever you decide to do to make money – that is if that is your aim. (Personal blogs for family and friends are excluded.)
“No traffic simply means no anything.”
However, let us work on the premise that you do want to make money, so getting traffic and leads will be of prime importance to you. You will need to decide if you want to purchase traffic, or to chase free traffic and either way, there are different approaches to consider.
Take care here. Do not allow yourself to become confused. Check out your options, read about them and then decide which you prefer. Concentrate on one method only for at least 3 months, give it a fair shot and then move on if you are not satisfied.
