As a long time blogger, 7 years, you’d think I’d know everything I needed to know about blogging, right? Unfortunately, and much to my chagrin, that is just NOT the case.
When I came across the 30 Day challenge using Russel Brunson’s book Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers, I knew it was something I wanted to get involved in.
For many reasons.
Today, I want to share what I have learned thus far in the 30 Day Challenge, and how you can use the book Traffic Secrets to grow YOUR blog and audience.
Traffic Secrets: How To Grow Your Blog Organically and Target your Dream Audience.
When I first started blogging, I was in a very specific niche with book blogging, and my audience was pretty obvious: readers.
So when, after 5 years of blogging, I made the decision to move my niche from books to “lifestyle” and now wellness, I thought I had a handle on what I was doing. I knew WordPress, I knew how to write a blog post, and I knew how to promote on social media.
Friends: I was wrong.
The more I wrote and promoted, the more everything stayed the same. It was frustrating, exhausting, and I got more and more discouraged as I continued to post.
And, do you know why that is?
I wasn’t writing to my DREAM audience. I was just WRITING about whatever popped into my head. I mean, who doesn’t want to read about Books! And How To Blog! And Essential Oils?
Not really… everyone.
And, as much as I love an outlet, that strategy just isn’t going to work for the goals I have.
But, it’s not just about knowing your audience, you need to know where they are.
Knowing & Finding You Target Audience
The first thing I learned from Traffic Secrets is that I, like many other bloggers and entrepreneurs, didn’t know how to target my specific (dream) audience. It’s not that my content isn’t great, because it is, or that people don’t WANT to read my stuff, because they do, but because they didn’t know where to FIND ME and I didn’t know where to FIND THEM.
Which, makes a whole lot of sense and seems rather obvious.
Figuring out where my audience is congregating has been a challenge and quite the undertaking. I am more than halfway done with the challenge, but I am still working on my lists.
And again, even though I am only halfway through the book, and challenge, since using the Secrets that Russel Brunson has shared, I have already seen such growth in my blog and confidence in my writing.
By completing this 30-day challenge, I know I will learn key strategies to increase my blog traffic even MORE.
