get traffic to your site
Just a few months ago I received an email from one of my friends describing the launch of his new site. He was really excited about it and really thought that this site would bring money right to his hands. When I visited his site I was also surprised by its creative design, with fast and easy navigation, good graphics, etc., but after a while I realized with a second email of his that he was not making not even a penny.

Furthermore, he hadn't even earned the amount spent to create the site. He was really upset and thought he was a fool. How can he explain the reason why with such an impressive site he did not make any money? The answer is that his site did not get targeted visitors who really wanted to buy the products he offered.

The foundation of an online business is traffic. Traffic is what it is first necessary to succeed in any electronic business. If you have no traffic to your website, you can not earn money, no matter how beautiful or attractive your site is. Even if you have the best products of the world, with not traffic you will not make any sales.
