So you have built a blog, your foundation is up and running, so now what do you do……??? Well you start by telling your story, tell your pain, your problems. Tell people where you are and where you want to go. Be straight with people as everyone can relate to a story, but nobody will relate to hype or BS. If you have no traffic, start telling people you have no traffic and then tell people what steps you are going to make to achieve more traffic. Remember that good information alone will attract more people to your site, so don’t keep things a secret, be open and you will see the difference quickly.
So here I am at my new beginning, however I have taken action by getting myself a mentor (Alex Jeffreys). I am certainly not a complete Newbie, but having direction is huge as you can easily find yourself going down the wrong path. So what am I going to do to start building so more traffic, well to start all I am going to do is get much more active on other peoples Blogs as this will start to drive traffic back to my Blog. However I am not going to start pimping my sh*t, as this will work against what I am trying to achieve. No, I will be doing my best to add value to their Blog. This is huge as if you don’t add value, why the hell would anyone want to visit your site to find out more what you have to say. Help as many people with as much information as you can, information will give you the starting point you need to become someone they will look for in the future for more help.
So back to what I am going to do, I will be commenting on other Blogs everyday until I am fully able to attract traffic all on my own. I have given myself a daily task to comment on at least 10 different Blogs a day. This should take me around an hour a day. This time commitment however will be the building blocks to having a truly active and succesful Blog. It isn’t an instant overnight trick, but more of a long term residual way to build traffic, but attracting real genuine people with the time to read and add value to my Blog to.
I hope you can start to see the picture I am painting with this plan, and remember to be yourself becasue that will go along way to becoming an individual that gets noticed, listen to and respected.
