Without traffic to our sites, our businesses would die. So in order to have an Online business, we need traffic. The question is where do we get it?
The first thing to do is set up a blog. If anyone needs help with how to do that, then grab my e-book in the right hand corner at the top of my blog post and it’s free. It teaches you everything you need to know about blogging.
Post, post and then post. I post once a week, every Tuesday. Blogging is considered to be a free method but it’s not really free because it takes up a lot of time and our time is not free.
In order to get traffic to our site, we have to get ourselves out there where we can stand out by taking action and following through.
Blog hopping is a good place to start and it’s a free method. I know I touched on this topic in my last blog post but I feel I need to expand. This is when you go into the forums and search for your niche. I would suggest that you use Warrior Forum or Digital Point. You find your niche and scroll down to see who needs help and if you can help them, leave a value driven comment. After you’ve commented a few times, you’ll be able to leave your link behind. Whatever you do make sure you follow the rules. You don’t want to get yourself kicked out. Leaving your link behind will take them to your blog or web page. How cool is that.
I finally went out and got myself a blogging coach and her name is Adrienne Smith and she is absolutely incredible. I felt myself struggling with my blogging and blog commenting and I searched out the right one for me. I’m learning so much from her and wandering why I didn’t do this sooner. I didn’t want anyone to know that I was struggling with this. How stupid is that. I am still trying to understand what kept me from doing this sooner.
I also went out and got myself a web designer as my blog needs a lot of work on it and his name is Ashley Faulkes. I did my own theme with some help, myself. But I see now it needs a lot of work and like Adrienne I picked out the best designer which reminds me I have work to do for him today. It’s on my list of things to do.
My advise to new bloggers is to join forums. communities, and blog commenting groups. Get yourself out there so people will know who you are. You want to get noticed. You want people to know like and trust you and the only way that’s going to happen is if you get yourself noticed. Show your personality. Let it be fun and engaging. You will be surprised with the results.
Have you used these methods as well? What kind of results have you received? I would love to hear your thoughts so please be sure to leave me a comment below. I also appreciate you sharing my post with your friends as well. We never know when one of them might be looking for the same type of information.
You all have an awesome week,
