This challenge has been a long time coming. I have wanted to step out of my comfort zone and do some things that are uncomfortable. Growth occurs when you face the challenges and dive headfirst into uncharted territories. So. I am undertaking this challenge on how to grow traffic to your blog to 200 visitors per day. This may seem ambitious, but it is doable.
I am aware that having blog traffic of 200 hundred visitors per day is minor for some bloggers, but to Fabufit Woman’s site is a major jump. This blog is over a year old and the growth has been slow over the months. I am aware that there are a few instrumental things that need to be done for growth to occur. More emphasis on the traffic part of things and the increase in postings will take place. I will also be implementing other methods to achieve my goal. Traffic is essential to any blog that is seeking to grow and teach and influence others.
Getting the right visitors
This is not merely about getting just any ole visitor to the blog, it is about attracting the unique ones that are searching for what you are offering. That means finding out where a lot of over 40s ladies hang out and seduce them to the site. Using the word beauty is not a bad word, but it is a word that identifies with mature women that are obsessed with looking and feeling their best. They are not limited, and demand is out there for this kind of information. The main thing that I need to know is where I am to find these people. Making a list of places and categorize them by their age, likes and hobbies will make them easy to find. Oh but, social media is not dead, but alive and relevant.
Here I will update business pages and revive dormant ones. The trick is to recognize which one of these sites work best with this site. Twitter is a large platform that has always been good to us here at Fabufit Woman. However, Facebook is king in the game. So, my emphasis will be FB. I will also do a bit of targeting to LinkedIn because of the mature professional women in my reach.
Pinterest has been my go to traffic source for a while, I will be vamping my Pinterest profile and be pinning more often.
Facebook Page and attracting more visitors.
There is a FB page for Fabufit Woman that I recently revive, and I will be spending a lot of time there targeting potential readers to the blog. I thought about having a giveaway on the site and directing persons to the blog. The most important thing is to be consistent with quality content and it should be relevant to the site. Fabufit Woman is all about being fabulous in every aspect of her life and we want to transmit that to her.
Content is still the boss
Improving the content and making my posts longer will ensure readers get sufficient material to satisfy their need for meat. Yes, longer post still is king and will beef up my blog and its readership. Five hundred-word blog posts do not necessarily carry the same weight as a thousand-word post. With that said, it is important to have a variety of content throughout the blog, so you can attract different readers. Some will have short attention span while there will be others that want to lazy back with a cup of coffee and graze over an article.
Giving the people what they want
Knowing how to grow your blog to 200 visitors per day takes a lot of research to see what is working and what is outdated. The important factor is finding out what the potential reader wants and be able to fulfill that want. So, creating easy to read, informative and enjoyable content will have your readers coming back for more.
This traffic growth challenge for my blog is all about increasing my daily traffic flow. With readers I may as well be writing for myself and while I love reading, I would love even more other people reading it also. Therefore, I will be implementing several strategic moves the blog readership.
If you have other suggestions I could add to my list, I would be appreciative. Leave me a comment and let us get the conversation started.
