Finding Viewers Organically
This takes the most amount of time.
Finding people organically can be the biggest hastle for someone just starting and it takes a large amount of time to develop a loyal fan base that can continually look for more content from you.
This being said, once you have developed a great amount of loyal connects, it will be easy to find more.
To show you an example of someone who has developed a great audience through this approach, take a look at a top notch blogger like Pete Cashmore and his blog mashable! Take a quick look at his story through the link provided!
The thing that Pete did was provide people with valuable content through his comments, he continually provided actionable content that people enjoyed and this is something that you can do too!
Word-of-mouth, referrals, and daily comments are some of the things you can expect when you take the time to grow your new website through this approach.
Here is a link from niel patel talking about this same strategy!
Now you may be wondering, how can I get it done?
Well that is the easiest part…
Step #1: Make an effort to comment on every post and comment on other post from people within your niche with valuable content that can lead you to more viewers.
Step #2: Post daily and give as much value in your post as possible when you do post. People love when someone takes the time to give them something that may lead them to take action.
Step #3: Do giveways or provide products that people can get for free on your site. People love free stuff so when you take the time to give them out, you could be creating some loyal followers for your new site. These can be journals, handbooks, schedulers, and infographics!

Using Paid Ads To Build Traffic
Paid ads is your other alternative and it is not a bad alternative at all.
Paid ads is when you advertise your new website on different social media or search engine sites like Facebook and Google.
This has become very popular and traffic grows very quickly if you have the right design for your advertisement.
Some things to keep in mind about paid ads: Although it can be very effective, paid ads can become short term gains for several sites. They can also be costly, as you can see by the image below.
More things to keep in mind about paid ads: Having the right headline, SEO, and more can all be taking into consideration when you are trying to create the best ads for your brand. Take a look at this article by Hubspot for some great tips on better headlines.
As you can see in the graphic above Facebook CPC (Which is short for Cost Per Click, which is the cost you might pay per the amount of clicks you receive) can vary by industry.
By taking the reasonable precautions, you can be very successful at pay per click ads.

Developing SEO For Your Website
Search Engine Optimization is the last one on this list.
SEO is when you use keywords to audit your webpage so it will return on a higher page of different platforms and social sites.
This process is very popular for people like Neil Patel who has used SEO to rank higher on almost all his blog post.
Most bloggers, including myself have tried several different ways to rank higher and gain more traffic to different post and websites. One of the places I have found that can help you with this is on wordtracker.
Wordtracker allows you to find some of the best keywords that will help you rank higher on all platforms.
