How to Attract Traffic to Your Garden Brand

Traditional styles of advertising don’t work anymore. According to a recent study from Adobe, 68% of online readers find online advertising annoying, and those annoying ads are not trusted

Your goal in promoting your garden brand is to ultimately convert leads into customers. The most effecctive way to do that is by creating content focused on education and inspiration.

You know the questions your brand gets the most. Use that foundation, and then go to Google to build on what people want to know in relation to topics your garden brand covers.

See what questions are pertinent, and what questions haven’t been answered.

Then, be the one to answer these questions! Provide information and share helpful tips. Also be sure that the information you are posting links back to your website to continually drive traffic.

4. Other Influencers?

Figure out who else is influencing your audience and build relationships with them!

No matter what the outlet - magazine, social media or blog - if these contacts are already influencing the audience you want to target then get in touch with them.

Share content that they post and reach out to try to build a relationship with these key influencers in the gardening industry.

If your audience hears about you from someone they already trust, they are much more likely to learn more and visit your site!
