Here’s why social traffic works.
People like people. People want to belong to a group. Even if it’s a small, unknown group, it’s a group nonetheless.
People are constantly on the search for meaning. Having read “Do what you love, love what you do“, you’d know that once the physiological (food, water, sex) needs and safety needs are satisfied, all individuals would look for “love and belonging”
Even in the case of rebels, or deviants, they’re constantly seeking validation from society, that they’re being rejected. Call it building “anti belonging” if you will.
How’s this apply to Internet Marketing?
If you’re a new Internet Marketer on the block, you’d want to establish yourself, build your brand, get your name out there.
You’d want to break into the inner circle of Internet Marketers.
You could participate in forums, build a high authority website. But I feel that the biggest bang for your buck will come from blogging.
A blog is a traffic generating, personal publishing platform.
And blogging works very well with social traffic generation.
The pre-requisite for this strategy to work requires that you have:
- Original content
- Have an opinion on a topic
- Back your opinion with facts, or a well-constructured argument

Once you’ve set up your profiles, you can embark the process of establishing contact with other members of the community.
Take note that you’d want to build a relationship with the community, rather than sell to it immediately.
A community could provide much greater value in terms of contacts and potential joint venture partners, rather than merely customers.
If you take action effectively, you’ll build your brand and generate traffic from your efforts.
