Troubleshooting Traffic Growth
Charles Snyder Raw #128 – Troubleshooting Traffic Growth. So I’m still feeling a bit under the weather and my voice isn’t quite back to normal yet. Since I still have some recordings that I made while in the Philippines, here’s another one for today. This time I am answering a question from Reim in reference to her website traffic. Here is her full question:
“My website gets only 1,000 views per month and I’m starting to get discouraged. I promote, write frequently and do SEO. What could I be doing wrong?” Reim O.
I did not have the chance to look at her website when I recorded this answer, but I did today. And many of the things I mention in the video still hold true. In other words, it’s not enough to simply say that your audience is anyone interested in acoustic guitars. You still have to niche down even further and define your audience or customer avatars.
For example, perhaps focus on young female acoustic guitar players from around the world. Talk about what you know and your story in the “About Reim” section should be your first “Why” video! You have potentially a great story and website, you just need to really focus your content and the traffic will come. Finally, don’t overlook the value of marketing. It’s one thing to have a great guitar blog but if nobody knows about, nobody knows about it.
Focus on these recommendations I have given you and the traffic will come.
A Word About Quora
I no longer answer questions like Troubleshooting Traffic Growth on Quora. There are no checks and balances in place for the rampant censorship by some moderators. And to make matters worse, inquiries about the anonymous censorship that goes on there have yet to see any reply. I will continue to help others, I just won’t be wasting my time on that website.
