The Strength of Words
Of course, I keep stressing the need for good content. If you are able to create mass amounts of content yourself, while still managing the site, you are a step ahead of the rest. If not, think about outsourcing your content creation. Most writers with SEO training know how to create content that will generate targeted website traffic. Good content is not always cheap; most rates will start at $15 per page of 500-750 words. If that’s above your budget, then start out with writing content yourself for more personalized and targeted traffic.

Content is one of the most important parts of growing your website popularity and visitor base, but keep in mind that some people don’t want to take the time to read through articles, this is where adding a video to your landing page will come in handy. The videos don’t have to be created by you; they can come from YouTube or other free content sites. Make sure the videos are non-offensive and relevant to the content already on your site. Similar to articles, the video should be helpful, entertaining and fill a need.
