I have said it multiple times, but I’ve wanted to see this blog take off for a long time. However, it has only been recently that I actually started putting in the proper effort. And I have to say – I wasn’t immediately rewarded. Luckily I knew this was going to be the case. Almost everything when it comes to marketing takes time to really see results.
Still though to my surprise I have started to see big results much faster than I thought. From the graph above you can tell just how big the difference is. I started doing a lot well before you see the jump in traffic. Just no matter what, I can’t believe how well it has begun to take off. Goes to show how well spending money on good marketing pays off!
Starting To Getting Successful? Maybe…
This I know is mainly due to the fact that I look at my blog as a business instead of a hobby. The first time around I started strong, but because of my “this is just a hobby” attitude the drive quickly faded. This time around I have a whole new attitude! I am building something and have to stay on track! I have taken a lot of my own advice as well as others.
Secondly, I changed my attitude towards social media. I knew that integrating my social media and my blog would help with bringing more visitors. However, I never have been much for social media. Literally just now started really using my multiple year old accounts! 😂
I should have definitely started using them sooner, but hey what can you do? Am I right! 😉
Anyway still even with them being hardly used I have seen a big reward for starting to use ’em and integrating them with my blog! I am happy to see more and more feedback coming in on the site. I don’t just like seeing numbers, although I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like it 😎, I like seeing real peoples opinions more. This to me has always been about building a community around topics that I find interesting.
So thank you for your support and like if you enjoyed the post!
