How To Drive Massive Traffic To Your Blog
Today I will be revealing exactly what I have learned about driving tons of traffic to your blog. There are a few topics that I want to cover in this post today which are: the overall importance of a blog, top 5 mistakes people make when developing a blog, and a few simple ways to boost your traffic right away.
Importance of Your Blog
First off, let me start by saying that your blog is Your Home Base. It is your Hub that connects you to all social media, which in turn will help you in establishing Your Brand. Now, social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc are all great sites when it comes to connecting and networking but keep in mind that they can be taken away from you at any time because they are free. Your blog, on the other hand is considered an asset in which no one can take it away from you. It is something you can continue to build on time and time again. Blogs are very inexpensive and also the easiest way to build social proof. It also gives you a method of sharing your knowledge in units of fresh, sustainable content as opposed to having just some random webpage or capture page when a person sees the same form of content everyday.
Common Mistakes People Make When Developing A Blog
Things I have seen happen many times is that people have an inward focus vs solving the needs and problems of others. What I mean by this is that so many marketers are stuck in the “All about me” phase, when at the end of the day, it is not about You! It is about helping people solve a problem that they may be having. So what people need to do is to start focusing on what people’s needs and wants are. When this is done correctly, it takes “YOU” out of the equation. Your focus will strictly be on helping the next person and that is how it should be.
The second mistake that people make is not being Consistent. Believe me, I was one of those people myself! Consistency is very crucial if you’re planning on being successful in blogging and your business in general. One example of this is making sure that you are creating at least one piece of content every single day.
Mistake #3 is that too many marketers take do not take their optins serious. This is the main point of having a blog. You want to get people on your list to start creating value to your audience. That is a very important step.
Another common mistake that is made is that people want to wait until they have the “perfect blog.” Take a look at my blog…it is not fancy nor is it anywhere near perfect. I am working on it though lol…but in the mean time, I rather focus on helping people like you by providing valuable content which can help you in your business. That is more important than looks to me at this point.
The last but not least mistake that is made is marketers mismanage their lists. They get the optins, but they never follow up. A lot of network marketers are “too cool” so to speak, to be picking up the phone and calling leads. Well, look at it this way, you can have a 50% increase in your income, if not more, if you will just follow up with your leads. Also, there are many people out there that’s begging for a way out and begging for help, but you let them go, all because you didn’t follow up. I don’t know about you but it bothers me to see someone being left out. So with that being said, follow up and knowing how to manage your list is very important.
Ways To Boost Traffic
There are many ways to drive traffic to your site. I am going to share some of the different methods I personally use for this. The first thing to start with is creating value within your marketplace. But first, you have to believe in your own value before you get it in front of other people (traffic).
The best ways of driving traffic are:
1. Article Marketing- there are many types of software out there that can help you in spreading your message all over the place. The software that I use personally is Article Marketing Robot. With this software you can submit your articles with just one push of a button. There are others out there as well like Article Wizard and Best Spinner.
2. Syndicating your content- with this method, you can send your content rather it’s a video or article through various social media sites such as twitter, facebook, youtube, etc.. The all time best software for this in my opinion is TribePro. You can put your content sharing on autopilot with this. If you’re really looking to get your content all over the place fast, you need to check this out!
With these methods, you can build a pretty big list. Now the very best way of traffic is to retain what you have and build on from there. The way you do this is to simply continue to bring value. Give your audience what they want. When you do this, you will keep your subscribers coming back for more instead of hitting the Unsubscribe button.
When it all boils down, your main purpose of building a blog, driving tons of traffic and establishing Your brand is simply building relationships with people. Creating valuable information that will allow you to help others solve whatever problem they may have. Follow up with your leads. Don’t leave anyone behind. Find out what their wants and needs are.
Last but not least, just believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, why should other people? Stop wasting time and get busy! There are many people out there that needs your help.
Inspire. Make a difference.
