    I know one 6+ figure marketer that has never bought an ad in his online career. Although lately he's been studying paid traffic methods in preparation of launching some ads.

    When I first started with my website, part time, about 2006, it was easier to rank. I got decent traffic that generated decent income. When I started to learn about paid traffic, I tried few things that didnt worked, and I was bragging about how much money I saved on paid traffic with SEO. Later on, I was able to make the income bigger by adding paid traffic and I stopped worrying about algorithm changes, and spending hundreds of hours building links.

    You are right but these days a blend of paid and free traffic is needed. Specially when you are at launch stage.

    Well, both methods are useful. Paid marketing helps reach a big number of the specific target audiences while organic marketing also does the same but it takes time to bring results. recently, I have been working on a site SEO Fella. It is a Dubai-based digital marketing agency that offers purely organic marketing like eCommerce and local SEO.

    We use different techniques depending on the situation of our clients. Both paid and free traffic have their pros and cons.

    At this point in my experiments, I've been working with paid traffic, and it seems to be working better than non-paid solutions overall.

    I would say, if you really want to be successful, you should work on both organic and paid traffic, and take all advantages from both sides. Paid traffic is a good choice when you are in the beginning and you don't have any other way to quickly attract traffic, but the SEO process is not something that should be neglected, in my opinion, as that traffic is the more valuable one that you will get. It also means that you managed to become recognizable in some area and that people can get to you by searching some specific keywords. Algorithms rank high in organic ranking, but it should be combined with some paid ads just to cover all areas.

    I don't really know why marketers are afraid of paid traffic, however from the very first day of my work as a marketer I started to choose paid traffic only. Yeah, my marketing strategy implies such costs and that's why I prefer paid ones. I tried free one but it has never led me to the result I wanted to acquire, that's why I found out that it's better to pay for qualified traffic rather than thinking that the free one can be beneficial for me.
    So, of course, it's up to you, but I would advise you to pay attention to paid traffic even if it's so expensive that it will cover all your incomes. It's just an initial stage.

    I am new here, but am an sea dog when it comes to traffic. I believe that we should aim to increase traffic while minimizing costs.
    Free traffic is the ideal we master's dream, but requires a lot of guru marketing tactics, including SEO, newsletter management, content management, link exchange, etc.
    A combination of both will usually work well to improve the quality of the traffic.

    Both are necessary in my view . Just as per your case recuse some of your free traffic and move to paid traffic which you can save time

    I like free marketing better because of the obvious inexpense. Depending on your niche, your business may have to rely on paid advertising if your market is small, or if there isn't alot of subjects that you can constantly write and create content for. In such cases like this, paid advertising can become a necessity.
