Driving Engagement: M360’s Strategy for Direct Traffic and Revenue Maximization

Modern digital publishers are always looking for growth opportunities to build a loyal user-base to sustain their businesses. There are a lot of options to choose from, however it’s imperative to decide which growth channel gives the sustained growth with maximum revenue opportunity or “User Quality”. We have highlighted key channels in decreasing order of User Quality.

Incidental traffic on the basis on keywords and trends; No long term user loyalty established easily.

Referral – Aggregators
While a lot of media aggregators give consistent traffic, they often strip website’s HTML and JS, keep the advertising revenue with themselves.

Content Promotion
Great way to pick your target audience at scale to bring new users to your website who are interested in similar content; We explain this channel a little more in detail in this post.

Once you have a loyal user from above channel(s), you can now keep him engaged with personalised newsletters.

Content promotion generated traffic is a sure-shot way to get transparent and guaranteed direct traffic.
