Do The Traffic Methods Described in Dean Holland's Quick Start Challenge Really Work?
I started with Dean Holland's Quick Start Challenge on May 30, 2013. The second module of the training is all about getting free traffic, so I decided to implement what was taught in the course and see if it would really work.
I call this... Operation: Free Traffic
I first opened my blog on May 4, 2013 and as you can see from the picture below, I struggled to get traffic to my blog. I tried everything but could never get more than a few eyes on my blog. It was incredibly frustrating to wake up each morning and check to see if I had anyone visit, and I could count the number of visitors on one hand.
In the beginning I tried everything! I tried to put my posts on Facebook, Twitter, Stumble Upon, Pinterest... You name it, I tried it! And still NOTHING
Then I got into the Quick Start Challenge, and finally started to take action. I understood that no one would see me if I didn't work at being seen! I couldn't just put up a blog and expect a wave of people to flood in!
Following the training that was provided to me, I started spending some time into getting free traffic from different sources. For the whole month of May (before I started the Quick Start Challenge on the 30th of May) the most people I ever had visit my blog in a day was 23. Pretty uninspiring and defeating!
Look at the picture again... May 30th it took a dip because I was busy with the training... but then BOOM! I started to see more and more people coming to my blog. Each day it has gone up! All from doing some very simple and easy things that anyone can do!
I know that 50 visitors per day does not look too impressive to most... But to me, it inspired me and gave me hope that I am not fighting a losing battle! Not to mention I basically doubled my traffic in less than a day!
I started thinking.. What would happen if I put in some more time and effort? Could I double, or triple where I am now in a week or so? How many people will be coming after a month?
I don't know now... But I sure am excited to see!
So this is why I decided to do this little test with the methods that are taught in the Quick Start Challenge. I want to see if I forget everything that I thought I knew, stop asking "what if" and just start doing, what will come of it.
So are you dying to know about what the key to getting free traffic is? I'm definitely no free traffic master, or know any Jedi Mind Trick to make people come to my site in droves... But the thing that has been working the best for me is... BE YOURSELF!
Yes... It is that simple!
Put yourself out there, start meeting people through all different channels! Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, etc... Meet as many people as you can! But don't just try to sell them products or services, start a conversation with them and get to know them! Build a friendship even. If you start doing that, you can see a massive difference!
I hope you will follow me on this journey and I will definitely keep it updated how Operation: Free Traffic is going!
I would love to hear some people and their free traffic experiences! What has worked for you? What hasn't?
