A Review: Simple Traffic Solutions

Simple Traffic Solutions is a traffic generation product created by John Thornhill. What makes this product stand out from the thousands of traffic generation products out there  is none of his methods involve Google.

This is because a few years ago John logged into his Google AdWords account to find out he had been banned from running ads. This is a very common issue with anyone in the IM niche. Google can afford to be selective with their ad program as they have huge corporations pumping billions of dollars into their bank accounts.

Another popular traffic teaching tactic is SEO. This involves trying to learn complex methods such as title tags, meta tags, heading tags, alt attributes, sitemaps, link building, algorithms, keyword research, page optimization and content creation. To make matters worse, you could spend months getting your site to to top of Google’s search results only to see them change their algorithm and your site disappears overnight. I’m sure you’ve heard of the recent Panda and Penguin updates that literally destroyed businesses overnight.

This is why John said “screw you Google” and decided to come up with traffic methods that didn’t involve them at all. He studied other traditional traffic generation techniques and improved them, tweaked them and perfected them. The result is that in the last year his websites have received over 2 billion hits from 20 different traffic generation methods. Yes, you read that correctly, OVER 2 BILLION HITS, and it didn’t cost him one cent.

And the good news is John shares how he generated every single click in his latest product, Simple Traffic Solutions. A step by step traffic generation program that can help you get all the traffic you need to your websites.

So what does Simple Traffic Solutions consist of?

Well, where do I start, John has covered all he knows about traffic generation in over 50 modules. Each traffic module consists of theory training, practical training and has a checklist so you can work your way through each method step by step. John has also created each module in multiple formats so you can watch the videos on your iPad, iPhone or other digital device, as well as watch online.

I also love the way John gives each traffic method a rating of one to five stars, this shows you what methods work best for him and what methods don’t work so well. This is something I have never seen before.

While some of the traffic methods appear a little basic they are covered in great detail and John’s enthusiasm convinces you that traffic generation needn’t be a complex matter. In fact he openly shows you how he uses each traffic generation method, shows you how his methods work, and he really has you thinking ‘why bother with Google’.

There is also a ton of PDF material including a very well written eBook, a traffic generation mindmap and a collection of checklists that compliment the modules perfectly, this is worth the cost of the product alone.

All in all, and for the price, this is one of the most comprehensive traffic guides I have ever seen, and the fact John shows you how he implements each method shows you he is genuine. He has put a lot of work into this and it shows.

In fact the only downside I can think of is the price is so low you think what’s the catch? Well John does hit you with an offer of coaching but this is not required to make his traffic methods work.

So for only $7.95 you can get one of the most comprehensive traffic guides I have ever seen and I can highly recommend it, no matter what level of experience you have you will learn from this product.

To top it off he also gives you a 60 day money back guarantee, so this really is one of the best deals I have seen and I encourage you to check it out.



Choosing a Great Headline to Increase Traffic

We all know that a headline can really grab the attention of the readers, particularly if they searching for an answer to a certain topic. The headline is the first thing they see so you have to make sure that it “stands out from the crowd!”

On the average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.  David Ogilvy

If a person is really struggling financially and looking for ways to get out of debt they may respond to a headline such as, “Do You Want To Get Out of Debt?” Of course they’ll open the article and read what you have to offer them. The problem is that sometimes the headline doesn’t correspond with the content, so make sure that you don’t mislead your potential clients.

A really powerful headline is one which immediately catches the reader’s attention so that they will keep reading, and this is where your skills as a writer will come in. If you can coax them to keep reading you are sure to be on a winner. Make your content just as intriguing as your headline so that they’ll be wanting more.

If you don’t know a lot about the subject you’ve chosen, do the research so that you get your facts straight. There’s nothing worse than reading an article and knowing that the information is incorrect. They are not likely to read any further articles from you if this is the case.

The headline is the most important part of your article, because if people don’t like it they won’t read any further and that is definitely not what you want. The content may be brilliant but the headline doesn’t reflect it.

Take your time the next time you write an article to make the headline “grab” the reader’s attention. You’ll be glad you did!


Do You Have Goals and Aspirations?

We hear it asked constantly, usually by Internet Gurus or some of the top people in the Self Development industry, yet many of us wander aimlessly through life without a goal in sight. Without a goal or something to aim at, we’re on a path to nowhere.

Never quit. It is the easiest cop-out in the world. Set a goal and don’t quit until you attain it. When you do attain it, set another goal, and don’t quit until you reach it. Never quit.  Bear Bryant

Many of us have a list of goals we want to achieve and we write them down or we put an image board together and then do nothing to try and reach our goal.

If you decided you wanted to build a new house, you couldn’t do it without planning what you’re going to do. First you have to find the right block of land and then look for house plans which suit your needs and your budget. This is your goal! You’ve probably thought about where you’d like to live and where you should build your dream home. You must take action to find what you need.

Do you aspire to be like someone or are you happy as you are? Many of us look up to people we admire for their achievements and successes, whereas others aspire to become a celebrity and be constantly in the public eye. It really doesn’t matter what you aspire to be as long as you want to better yourself and make yourself happy.

Too many people want to be something they’re not and are bitterly disappointed when they don’t succeed. Be happy in your own skin and be the individual that you are.

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.  Louisa May Alcott

Don’t spend your whole life without having a goal in mind. It’s a bit like getting in your car and driving and not knowing where to go! We’re all on a journey through life together and if we have something amazing to aim at, it will inspire us to jump out of bed everyday and reach it.

What is your goal?
