I’ve never really been a fan of SEO. It seems to be a lot of work and pretty slow. I think paid traffic is faster.
I definitely agree with you on using paid traffic.
I regularly buy solo emails and Facebook ads to deliver a lot of traffic in a short period.
It’s particularly useful for running tests and getting actionable data for optimising a funnel (sales process or whatever).
Thing is, SEO doesn’t have to involve a lot of work.
You’re right in that it can be pretty slow, but you end up with an asset that works for you in the background.
It’s a very reasonable strategy to ignore SEO altogether. But for me, it’s another string in the bow.
It really just seems to take forever. Paid traffic like EZINE etc is probably best.
