10 Hacks to gain more traffic to your website

Go through your media content, blogs or articles and see what content you have created suits well with your connections.

Video content works very well on LinkedIn, so re creating your best blog posts or articles in video format then sharing them on Linkedin can work especially well.

Guest posting is a great way to reach out to blog owners and ask if you are able to write up a blog for them, the trade here is you then gain a link back to your website in the bio section of the blog and can gain extra traffic this way.

A twist you can add while writing up is linking other helpful resources earlier in the blog, then including your own website as part of what you are writing about. This gains you two benefits, one a backlink and two the higher chance that people will click through to your website.
