“Show people they matter by listening to them and paying attention to who they are — beyond the confines of their business.” - @TeaSilvestre
There are people out there who will tell you that ALL traffic matters. That ALL traffic gets you readers, subscribers and an income.
Traffic is only as good as the readers, subscribers and income it brings you.
Perhaps the best way to get more traffic is to ditch your niche.
Stop confining yourself to a box because sooner or later, you’re going to run out of air…
Ditch Your Niche
If you want to get more traffic, you need to ditch your niche in favour of looking for people; individuals who have a problem that you can help them solve.
Nothing is more soul-destroying than starting a blog with the desire, goal and dream of making a living doing what you want to do above all else and an income out of it that supports you …
Only to get zero response.
No traffic. No readers. No subscribers. No money. It’s horrible. And it results in more bloggers quitting than anything else.
Social Media Doesn’t Make Your Blog Relevant
How relevant is your blog to the people you want to be visiting it, reading it, subscribing to it and buying your products or service?
Social media can be an way easy of convincing yourself that you’re taking positive action to get traffic, readers, money, by building connections and promoting your blog.
It’s an illusion:
Social media cannot replace creating real meaningful, relevant content that actually gives people what they want and gives them the tools and steps that will get them to the results, outcomes and destinations they desire.
If your traffic and readership is stalling it’s a good bet that you’ve stopped being useful to your audience.
Traffic That Doesn’t Stay Is A Waste Of Time
Traffic that comes then goes away never to return wastes a lot of your time. Because you have to spend too much time finding this kind of traffic then persuading it to visit your blog.
Far better, and more astute thing to do is to go after traffic then keep it. That means you converting it.
Before you can make money through your blog you need to convert traffic into customers. It’s always nice to have a lot of traffic and a lot of guru-squad experts will have you believe that you need to keep getting traffic if you want to make money. It’s not always true.
Here are some people who’ve made money with only small traffic figures. Or by thinking more about their readers experience and results than their own …
If you’re not getting results you want and don’t know why, it can be really frustrating.
You can blame yourself. But it’s not your fault. If you’re not getting results and you’re working hard to get them, then it’s probably the tactics you’re using.
Sometimes Your Tools Are To Blame
These resources will turn your results around. And turn a lot of those crappy tools and tactics on their heads …
Are you ready to take your blog from invisible to popular?
It’s a challenge. But one that I know that you’re up to and ready to accept. Because you’re smarter than most bloggers out there. You’re smarter and you’ve got the guts to reach out for opportunities that come your way.
It’s time to stop being frustrated, to stop being disappointed, to stop feeling you’ve failed and that your dreams of changing lives and making something of your own that brings you recognition and rewards you deserve is just some silly delusional thinking.
Because it’s not, is it?
It’s a real-live desire and goal. Right?
You want to make this work for you and for all the people you know you can help and solve real problems for and bring in to your ideas, skills, know-how and creativity.
It’s Time To Stop Feeling Sorry For Yourself
It’s time to stop being broken down by the crap out there.
It’s time to stop forcing yourself to be “realistic” and face up to your “responsibilities” because, let’s face it, who’s realism and responsibilities are they talking about anyway?
Certainly not yours, right?
Because you know that with the right resources, the right advice, the right people by your side, that you can make it. That you can take what you have, or what you know about, or can share with others and turn it into real resources of your own that others can use and get results from too, right?
It’s your time. Your time to stop being invisible and to start finding popularity amongst the people who’s lives you can change, in however small or large a way.
It’s your time. And there a lot of good and generous people out there ready to help you and see you succeed.
And you can leave me a comment in the Comments section below to tell me how you want to start becoming popular and what resources are helping you get there.
Share your dreams and your goals here and let’s start helping each other find the resources and the know-how to make the difference they long to make, because …
It’s your time to start making the difference you’ve always wanted to make.
Are you ready to accept the challenge?
Let me know if you are…
