Today’s lesson is on how to get traffic from Facebook and other sources of traffic to your website or blog.
If you are just starting out with your website or blog you may want to expect organic traffic on your website, but as a business person you want to control your business from A to Z especially when you are going to be selling products through your website. If you are just going to depend on google AdWords then you are leaving a lot of money on the table. You can monetize any traffic coming to your website by selling stuff.
People buy not because they want to buy but because they need to buy,
Whether its going to solve their problems or impact some how in their lives, you just is to create that reason for the need.
Creating a solid connection and build a trust is the reason why you blog. Creating value brings that connection to blog or website. And since you understand why and how you need can create value. All you need now is to add the last piece of ingredient. TRAFFIC
So let’s go into Facebook Ads as many of you know that your audiences are on Facebook because everybody is on Facebook.
So these are the steps you need to take.
Step 1: On your Facebook news feed check the options on the left sidebar of the page and click on create Ad at the very bottom of the side bar.

Step 2: create your Facebook ads for your Facebook page. This is an example of a Facebook Ads post on my page. You can also see that I have links in the description on the advert so that I can direct my audience to the offer. Your link can lead to your website or landing page.
Now your Ads can be created in so many different ways, there are; Facebook post Ads, banner ads for website traffic, brand awareness, engagements Ads and so on, but the method I want to show you is using engagement Ads, because you need to build engagement on your Facebook business page and get some following and at the same time get traffic to your website or business.
So the method I want to show goes this way;
Facebook Ads > website> capture leads
Therefore your website must have a capture mechanism which is a LANDING PAGE.
Why is because you don’t want to waste money on traffic you need to make something out of your traffic. Most website owners don’t know how this works and that’s what differentiate the big earns from amateurs in the business.
