You’ve attended so many seminars on wealth creation online. You’ve heard how to create ebooks, membership sites, forums, digital products and blogging.
You finally decide to take action and begin to start your own blog site. Excited, you rush out, find the best domain name out there, buy it using your credit card and you hook up your hosting to it while paying an additional $80 or so for year.
You install WordPress or Blogger as your platform to blog. You log into the system, change the title of the website, you tweak the backend of it by removing some categories and so forth.
Finally you jump straight in and click on the “add new” post button. You can’t wait so you start blogging. You write your first blog on your expertise on an area or what happened during the day. Whatever comes to mind, you write about it. Most likely you have a paragraph in there somewhere saying “this is my first blog post”
You immediately feel whether people will find what you’re writing interesting so you hold back information, tweak it and perfect it. After nearly an hour, you decide to publish your article onto your latest blog.
You look at your blog and see your brand new article and you feel proud of yourself. You then rush out and tell everyone on Facebook, Twitter that you just posted your first blog post. People read it and congratulate you.
This motivates you to write another one. And another one. And another one.
Very soon, you get really excited that you’re blogging and you’re starting a new business online so to check your success, you check to see how many visitors you’re getting to your blog.
You log in and check your statistics.
You don’t receive that much at all, maybe 4 visitors per day. You think to yourself, “wow I spent so much time and effort into these articles and I only made 4 visitors?”
Fast forward several months later and you’ve only written a few blog posts here and there.
The first month, you have around 12 articles, the second month, 2 articles, then there’s a massive gap.
You try your best to generate more traffic to your website by posting your blog site on forums and commenting on other blog sites.
You watch your traffic spike up a bit but then it returns back to a low number.
At the end, you conclude that blogging isn’t for you, you spend too much work on it and all you get is lousy traffic and hardly any income. No one is commenting and you’re getting no enquiries.
You start to think to yourself, whether blogging is really for you and start thinking about giving up.
A Common Experience In Blogging
I see this happen all to often when people rush out and start a blogging business. Most people think that if you were to start a blog site, you’ll generate traffic instantly as soon as you publish your article.
People see all the money that other people make from blogging but when they start a blog, they don’t see any of those kind of results at all.
The fact is that the results you see from high profile bloggers who are generating thousands of dollars per month and hundreds of thousands of visitors per day is that you don’t see the work they put into it.
You don’t see how many years they spent writing into their blog.
You don’t see the frustration they had when they started.
You don’t see them typing away late at night when everyone else is sleeping.
You only see them bank the money.
This my friends is how you get traffic to your blog.
How To Get Traffic To Your Blog
I don’t believe in quick fixes or shortcuts, if you want to have a six pack, you need to work hard for it, you can’t take a pill and automatically you lose that belly fat.
Same goes with blogging, you can’t do one SEO strategy, write ONE perfect blog post, do ONE thing that will bring in the traffic.
It’s never that ONE thing that gets all the traffic to your blog.
It’s the combination of all the things you do that generates traffic to your blog and that my friends is this:
“You must write every single day into your blog”
That’s it. That’s how you get traffic to your blog.
My 5 Months Case Study
I started this website 5 months ago from a hotel apartment I was staying in. I had the idea in the middle of the night so I jumped on my computer and purchased the domain name.
The website went live at 3am in the morning and I wrote my first blog post.
I initially received only 4 visitors per day, however from my experience of losing over 25 kilos last year in body fat, I learnt that if you want to get something, you need to work hard for it, every single day.
That’s what I did with my blog site, I wrote in it every single day.
Today my traffic has completely exploded and viewing Google Analytics, it’s amazing how my website has grown.
Here’s the screen shot.
The One Thing That Makes All Of The Difference
So if you’re looking to find that one thing that makes the biggest difference to the success of your blog, it’s this.
Write every single day into your blog.
