The purpose of this article it to outline or make you rethink what kind of results you should be getting from you efforts.
First of all to get traffic its important to note all the ways it can be achieved.
Now before I list all the organic ways I want you to start thinking like a media company, like Huffington Post or Buzzfeed. These media companies are genius at producing organic traffic to their websites, because their business model depends on it. If they don't get traffic, they go out of business. (Essentially) P.S I'm not saying go spend your money on those medias. Every industry is different do you research or get advice from an expert in marketing.
Now there's many other ways you can achieve paid or organic growth, I just wanted to ensure I have listed some of the most important ones.
It's really important if you want a positive return on your time, money and effort that you are willing to do the research, do the testing or at minimum contact an expert to walk you through the best steps.
