All of those statements above? That was me when I first started blogging. Here I was writing all this great content on my blog, just like you, and no one was reading it. Crickets. All I heard was crickets. And I didn't get it. I was writing awesome stuff and no one was reading it. It was crushing me.
Once I got out of my pity party I looked at it from a business perspective. "If you build it, they will come," sounds great in a Hollywood movie but that's not how it works in real life. I knew if I wanted people to read my blog I had to bring them to my website. Not just expect them to show up like some magic fairy tale.
I knew what I needed was traffic. I also knew there had to be a way to get traffic to my blog faster without it costing me a ton of money in ads or time that I didn't have. You see I am a busy mom of 3 small kids and I don't have time to research every idea out there to drive traffic to my blog. I knew there had to be a better way to get traffic to my blog faster.
So I took a look at what the big bloggers did when they first started out. I took a look at the popular online business owners to see what they did to grow their audience. And it all led me to one word: Exposure.
In order to get more blog traffic you can't sit behind your screen and think "If I build it, they will come." NO! You have to go out there and SHOW them how awesome you are. Then they will be excited about visiting your blog, subscribing to you email list, and sharing your blog all over social media.
So that is exactly what I did. I built not one, but two blogs, in just 7 months by going after all the exposure I could. But it wasn't just about the exposure. It was about a systematic, full proof plan that I followed to build two successful blogs. Two blogs that have generated thousands of new visitors, email lists of over 3,000 people, and programs, courses, and affiliate income that has given me an income of just over $15,000.
