Huge Traffic Without Spending – Charles Snyder Raw #110. So I cannot even begin to estimate how many times I’ve seen this kind of question. Everybody and I do mean almost everybody is looking to do something on the cheap. Since so many people fail to understand that marketing and advertising in an investment, here I go again tackling the question.
Reality check please!
This is the original question sent to us on Quora:
“How can I bring huge traffic to my newly started blog without spending any money?“
My answer to his question is pretty simple; it takes a lot of work and it’s also going to take a long time! As in a long time like a year or more and you better be doing some damn good blogging. So if you’re inexperienced, then it’s going to take even longer while you earn your chops.
What I mean by that is also pretty simple. Since you have a new blog, it’s likely very few people even know about you. In other words, if nobody knows you exist, the problem is that nobody knows your blog exists too. So can you see where I am going with this yet?
And now a reality check
First, the only way you’re going to fix that is by either spending money on marketing or doing a lot of self-promotion. Since you want to do this the hard way without spending any money, you’re going to need to do a lot of promotion. And I do mean a lot!
You’re also going to need to do a lot of blogging, guest blogging and being a guest blogger. Google and other great sources on blogging strongly suggest blogging no less than twenty (20) times per month. So I can also tell you that is for 18 or more months just to get started.
I’m only just scratching the surface so far. You’ll also need to get on social media and start promoting there. So that means posting your content on a business or public figure page. That also means that you’ll need to join groups too and add value to their communities. And adding value means quite a bit more than saying “hey, visit my blog” or “buy my stuff”!
So to be honest with you, most people are unwilling to make the required sacrifices to get Huge Traffic Without Spending money.
PLEASE NOTE: I no longer answer questions like Huge Traffic Without Spending 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. Since that is the case, I will continue to help others, I just won’t be wasting my time on that website. So Say Goodbye Quora!
