Episode 314: Traffic for Poor People: How to Get Traffic When You Don’t Have Money for Paid Ads

Tue, Jul 13, 2021

When it comes to getting traffic for your business, it’s obviously ideal to have a lot of money to invest in ads. But that’s not always realistic, especially for people just starting out. In this episode, Ralph Burns and Kasim Aslam give hope to those entrepreneurs who don’t have extra money for paid advertising just lying around. 


The bad news? You have to spend for traffic. Period. The good news? You can pay with time if you don’t have the cash. Ralph and Kasim talk through some simple basics, things they did back in the day that really worked. The bottom line: bring value to people, and it will pay off down the road. It’s the Law of Reciprocity, and it works.
