Let me tell you one of my favorite stories. It happened
over a year ago, but it still makes me smile every time
I think about it.
I was standing in a room of about 20 people, and I asked
for a show of hands.
“Who here has used the phone book in the last week?”
People looked around at each other, shrugged their
shoulders, and in a dark corner…one lady meekly rose
her hand, embarrassed to admit that she used the phone
Then I asked, “Who has used Google in the past week?”
Hands shot up all around the room. Smiles. Laughter.
One guy shouts out, “I used Google a couple times
before 7 am today!”
Pretty funny. And pretty telling.
Let me tell you a secret. Most local businesses are
s till spending money on phone book ads. We’re
talking the old school yellow book ads that nobody is
Meanwhile, a very few smart businesses are hitting
Google hard – and they’re reaping the rewards. These
select few businesses are getting all of the eyeballs
and all of the fah-ree traffic – for now.
But if history is any guide…these types of
opportunities don’t last very long. Either you get on
board or your competition gets on board first…that’s
how it works.
The easiest and fastest way to get ranked is to

competition while ignoring the phone book, and
getting all sorts of fah-ree google traffic.

This time of year I really start thinking about traffic.
It’s ski season, which means that I spend a lot of time sitting in a car between my house and the ski slopes.
Some days, you just cruise along and the road conditions are dry and everybody is cruising along with no problems.
Other days the spring snow begins dumping on the road and you get caught in bumper to bumper, sliding everywhere and hoping that the guy with bald tires doesn’t drive too fast and crash into somebody.
In Colorado, they’re talking about taking a special barrier that would sit in the middle of the highway, and move to the left or right – creating a lane for the part of the highway that was busiest. So in the mornings, it would move to create a westbound lane. In the afternoon, the barrier would move and create an eastbound lane.
Traffic is really important, because it’s how we get from one place to another.
And it works exactly the same on the web.
People are trying to get from one place to another all the time, 24/7, on the web. They’re searching, they’re talking with their friends on Facebook, they’re emailing, and they are listening to podcasts.
And a million other things.
One thing is for certain: If you’re not inserting yourself into the traffic flow, you’re missing out BIG TIME.
I don’t want you to miss out on the traffic you deserve.
For a long time, customers have been asking me to create a single resource that they can refer to, to make sense of all the places on the internet where you can get traffic. It’s finally here.
You asked, I delivered. I’ve created this special resource that you can print out, and refer to as you work to create content and increase your website
traffic. Or just as an idea generator.
Or even as a start to a strategic plan to double your sales this year.
And I’m giving it to you for no cost at all.
Traffic equals leads, and leads equals sales.
And that goes for an internet only business, or a local mom and pop shop.
I’ll be covering more on this in the near future.
