Buying Traffic: What Does it Mean?

There are two primary ways to get people to a website or an app: organically and paid services. Both obviously have their pros and cons. Organic traffic is users who land on websites/apps without any paid search results. Visitors ultimately find a website/app after using a search engine such as Google or Bing. On the other hand, paid traffic is a type of traffic that one must pay to obtain. For example, if you were to advertise on the Super Bowl, any traffic that the ad sent you to their website or app is considered as paid traffic.

So what does this mean? Buying traffic simply means the amount or number of visitors that an ad receives. “Buying traffic is nothing more than the set of strategies in which you will need to invest money to attract people to your offer.”. For an app to be successful, users need to be driven to an advertisement from various sources. The traffic needs to be associated to interested people to eventually buy the product or service. For this to happen, a targeted audience in a certain market/vertical is necessary.

Here are a few tips when it comes to buying traffic:

All these remarketing tactics will eventually increase your conversions and ROI.
