Someone asked me today about things to avoid on their traffic growing journey. “Things” meaning strategies, tactics and outright mistakes one needs face and release to build traffic successfully.
Avoiding blogging mistakes helped me travel to places like New Zealand. I snapped the featured image for this post on the magical South Island.
Let’s take a look at what you should avoid to increase blog traffic..
Spam comments need be avoided. Do not comment with “Nice post.” People see you want a backlink and ignore your comment, bloggers and readers alike.
Observe comments from Lisa Sicard. She publishes genuine thoughts in warm fashion. Be personal, authentic and share a few lines or paragraphs to make an impact.
Going Lone Wolf
I learned this lesson the hard way. I am still learning this lesson because even though I have seen nice success, sometimes I become human, or fallible, and move away from 100%, all in, big time blogger networking.
Observe Tim Ferriss. See those 40, 50, 60 links out to other people each post? Talk about BIG TIME networking. Tim developed the ultimate abundant mindset so he is one of the more powerful entrepreneurs on earth and makes sweet coin too.
Feel good about linking to successful bloggers like David Boozer, Matthew Loomis and Christopher Jan Benitez. Make friends. Friends promote you, endorse you and buy your stuff. I just checked my Amazon royalty payment report and noted sales from Canada. Cori Leigh is one of the awesome folks from North of the Border who purchased one of my eBooks, and our bond and cross-promotion helped make it so.
Opening Only One Income Stream
Multiple streams of income or nothing guys.
A single income stream can vanish overnight for one of many reasons.
But opening 5 or 10 or 20 income streams gives you cash flow through many channels.
More New Zealand; this was from my trip to the North Island.
Open one stream every 1-3 months, or, every 6-12 months. Add slowly but steadily to boost your blogging income. I read how Bob Proctor has over 200 income streams. That is impressive.
Corey Hinde is social on Facebook and Twitter. He engages me on the regular.
He avoids a big blogging no no; being shy.
Imagine trying to grow business and traffic but not talking to people? Hmmmm….other people need to visit your blog and buy your stuff or hire you if you want to make money blogging. Not talking to people for some fear – shyness is fear – makes things difficult for you as a blogger.
No Mindset Work
- slayed by fear
- overcome with doubt
because you do no mindset work.
Be positive. Focus on success. Visualize your dreams. Surrender. Know you are succeeding now.
Alonzo Pichardo is a positive, success-focused blogger. Follow his advice. Help people and let the content do what it does. Be confident. You deserve success and will succeed by being all in.
Think About Success
Dwell on this idea.
Change your blogging course by not spending significant energy avoiding failure but by focusing on success. See your dream life in vivid detail. Be generous with yourself.
Develop a success consciousness so you gravitate toward success.
