Is your blog waxing great or dying gradually and you wonder how to get it back?
Several things can contribute to a blog losing its productive abilities. Suddenly, you found that readers are no longer coming forth, no one is visiting, commenting or even sharing on social media. What is happening to your blog – you ask?
Your theme might be the best ever, great font size and nice visuals to match. But it seems something is going wrong somewhere – actually, it’s not your fault entirely, but you can change this circumstance and smile again.
I’ve only one proven-traffic generation strategy for lifting a new blog from the ‘ground floor’ and I also know how to resuscitate a dying blog. My strategy would surprise you – it’s so simple to implement and once you give it a shot, the good lines would begin to fall in your favor.
The Traffic You Need Is Available!
A few days ago, I had a talk with one of my friends, an affiliate marketer and a business coach. I was surprised when he told me that ‘the right web traffic is too difficult to get.’ “It’s a total waste of time trying to promote your business online because you’ll fail.” He said!
Wow, that’s so disheartening and I still hear people say that. But believe me; all the traffic you ever need to succeed in your online business is available. A blog will suffer lack of traffic and sales if the right eyeballs are not viewing the ‘money pages.’
The irony is this: you don’t actually need so much traffic to succeed online. There is a place for huge traffic, especially for pay per click publishers. But if you’re a service provider, few targeted prospects can generate six figures annually. So, stop searching and trying every possible best to drive 1000s visitors to your blog, pursue 100 responsive prospects – that’s where jaw-dropping conversion lies.
Position Your Blog For Quality Traffic
Oh, I promised earlier to reveal my proven-traffic strategy – well, I’ve not forgotten!
But are you positioned to receive the influx of quality readers, desperate clients and high paying prospects to your business?
Your blog may be dying, but there is a great chance it would come alive again. Positioning your blog simply means writing some ‘epic shit’ and optimizing unique web pages for people and search engines.
Does your blog have quality and helpful contents? Why not start from there and spend time revamping the posts. The traffic strategy I’ll be unveiling in few minutes will not work effectively if your content is weak.
You don’t need to get paid to write on your blog, no permission whatsoever and you can research and write valuable posts today – that’s how to position your blog for my proven-traffic strategy. Enough of the rant, here is what I’ve been creatively drawing you into:
Guest Posting: My Proven-Traffic Strategy
Yes, I’m talking about guest posting!
Are you surprised? It’s the best proven-traffic strategy as far as blogging is concerned. In 2009, my first blog was about to collapse; I literally lost enthusiasm and passion to contribute regularly. A problogger friend of mine advised me to start writing guest posts and when I started, pulsating changes began to happen.
Is your blog dead or on the highway to getting drowned, I have no other strategy to show you, than guest posting. I’m sure you’ve read several articles and watched videos on Youtube.com on the power of guest posting.
But has it worked for you?
A lot of bloggers who discovered the power in guest blogging, started out strong and 87% messed it up during the initial phase of research. It’s very important that you follow a proven pattern if success is your target.
Have a Goal-Map from Get-Go
In order to successfully leverage the power of guest posting and drive targeted readers to your blog, you need a goal. This goal should spell out the duties (plans), and the visions you want to see come true.
Some bloggers actually started out with a goal-map but got distracted on the highway. You know, a lot of things flash in my minds each time we challenge ourselves to be focus. The only secret recipe to winning in guest posting game is to have a clear goal of what you want, and how to actualize it – and remain focused on the ‘goal.’
Don’t allow anything to obstruct your visions about getting featured in A-list blogs. A single guest post on these blogs could result in 400 – 2000 active readers and prospects in 24 hours. Yes, a single guest post I wrote for FreelanceSwitch.com actually brought 347 targeted readers to my blog within 12 hours of going live.
Avoid “Churn and Burn” Guest Blogging Practice
What does it mean to “churn and burn?”
It’s a simple marketing phrase which explains the relationship between service providers and clients. The success of your business lies in repeated guest blogging and exposing services to potential customers. Some bloggers will write a guest post, get featured in A-list blog and neglect to participate in comments, social sharing, live webinar et al. You need to reply to comments, answer questions and throw lights on complicated issues.
And because you’ve a good and clear goal, replying to comments and promoting the published article would motivate the blog owner to accept your next articles. The first published guest post is only a stepping stone to better and friendlier relationship with bloggers. Learn to build relationships – the traffic you need will never seize – it’ll be consistent, proactive and productive.
To “Churn and Burn” simply means writing and getting published once, and lose the opportunity to guest post again. Why? You didn’t reply, you didn’t proofread for errors, you lost control of your published works – you name it!
Write From Your Heart Consistently
It’s takes time to build a successful blog. Do you think it’s better and profitable to go back to the same 9-5 job? Why not grow the blog with guest posting. And if you must achieve tremendous exposure, traffic and credibility, write from your heart always.
You’re contributing to the success of another blog and this effort will be rewarded for the time being and years to come. Do it because it’s worth it – Do it because it’s a win/win marketing system – do it because you want to give your blog life. See you at the top!
