Stuck trying to get more web traffic? Let me offer you an alternative way...
And what's even better, this method is inexpensive, social and helps to develop your writing skills - what's not to like?
Why You Need This Online Course
I want to you to stop being obsessive about getting as many views as possible on your blog or website.
First, gaining web traffic shouldn't be a competition. And second, what are you trying to gain? Does achieving high visitor numbers make you think your blog or website is successful?
I want you to start thinking differently. I want you to view each visitor for their own merits, as real people, not as a faceless number or an auto-generated commodity.
I want you to value return web traffic rather than trying to accrue as much of it as possible.
And all of this can be done socially, through a little bit of effort of your own.

Introducing An Alternative Method to Get More web Traffic
After being repeatedly asked on Quora how to get more traffic back to your blog (or website), I realised there was a need for an answer to this question.
Loads of people were suggesting expensive, short-term solutions, most of which required hiring experts or having large marketing budgets. However, I wanted to offer an alternative which didn't cost much, even if it did require a bit of effort from the blog or website owner.
Many people do not consider how the power of socially commenting, engaging and interacting with people can transform them into web traffic. This forgotten and neglected method is often pushed to one side, mainly because it is more long-term rather than providing the instant results everybody craves.
But I want to stress social marketing does require persistent and focused attention, plus more effort from web owners. If you are willing to put in the hard graft and learn how to do this properly, the results are far more gratifying and meaningful towards achieving your objectives.

About Alice Elliott
Alice Elliott, aka the award winning Fairy Blog Mother, has turned away from helping would-be beginner bloggers to focus on commenting, engagement and interaction. She has been doing this since blogging-gurus turned off their commenting facilities in 2014.
Her focus is to explain and educate how commenting, in the form of social marketing, can help both individuals and businesses to improve their online visibility, boost their reputation, spread their expertise and increase their web traffic – and it is this last concept which stimulated this particular e-course.
When not researching into commenting, Alice can be found posting wild flowers onto Instagram which she photographs when walking in the English countryside.

Frequently asked questions
I have purposefully made each video as short as I can. This is not only to satisfy people with short attention spans, but I want you to get the gist quickly so you can start exploring each concept as soon as possible.
Short videos means you won't spend a lot of time watching rather than doing. I suspect if you wanted to, you could easily consume this course within a day.
First you will need to register to access the website. Paying will allow access to the course, but it would be a good idea to keep your login details safe for when you want to revisit the course. All the videos are accessible straight away for you to watch them.
The alternative is to join The Commenting Club, where you will be able to access all the courses, challenges and other resources available to members at no extra cost.
Ideally yes, as you will understand it better and which kind of web traffic you would need or like, so you know exactly what to say in your comments.
If you are working for a business, and want to gain more traffic for their website, there are plenty of tips and tricks which you could implement to make a difference. I suggest working closely with your boss, or with your team, so everybody is working on the same page, the focus and attitude is compliant and you know exactly who you wish to attract to your website.
In the beginning I would focus on the social platform you feel most comfortable with and where your ideal clients will be hanging out. In fact getting it right on one platform will make it easier when you eventually move onto others. This is not a race, it is a concept which needs to be worked on to get the best results you can.
