Blogs can’t be successful without traffic. Even if it’s not your main business, blogs are pointless without eyeballs.
You started out pumped up and carefully worded and formatted each post. You got excited about all the different topics you’ll cover and made sure to stick to your content calendar because everyone said that as long as you stayed consistent and share on Instagram, your blog would one day be successful.
After a few weeks, you decided to check in with Google analytics. You noticed that traffic spiked when you first announced you started your blog and that you got a few extra visitors each time you announced a new blog post, but ultimately there was no consistent traffic. You felt so frustrated and even tried re-doing your home page to see if you could make it more appealing.
You started wavering in consistency. You skipped a blog post here and there and each time you just felt like no one missed it and begin that terrible self-doubt spiral. Eventually, you gave up.
Instead of losing a major source of income and a powerful way to market your business, you can simply GET PEOPLE TO SEE YOUR STUFF. Not only does that do wonders for your mindset, but it also does wonders for your business growth. Seeing traffic increase means your impact is growing and growing and the potential you have to really share and educate is unlimited.
It’s a pretty bomb feeling, and, if you have been following me for just 2 minutes, you probably know I believe Pinterest to be the best and quickest way to build reoccurring traffic.
