It’s the question you secretly dread:
“So, what’s your blog about?”
You should be delighted that someone’s showing an interest in your passion.
But the problem is, you’ve been here before. You know how it ends.
Pushing your doubts aside, you launch into an explanation, all the while waiting for that inevitable moment…
That moment when her eyes glaze over and you can practically read her thoughts.
She’s wishing she’d never asked.
She forces a smile. “I guess it’s nice to have a hobby.”
And a tiny part of your dream dies.
So what’s the problem here – is it you, or your blog?
If you’re struggling to win people over online too, there’s a good chance it’s both.
But fortunately for you, there’s a simple solution…
Don’t even try to deny it.
You want more traffic to your site.
In fact, you’d love more traffic.
That’s why you follow blogs that promise to boost your traffic – like this one.
And it’s why you always seem to have enough time to read “just one more” traffic tip.
But how many tips have you actually implemented? And how many have you actually stuck with?
When the next tip is just around the corner, you always have a reason to wait.
Until now. Because the time has come to break the cycle.
What follows is a monster list of traffic resources: case studies, ultimate guides, slide decks, podcasts, videos, and many more.
Think of it as over a year’s worth of weekly tips delivered in a single, procrastination-busting payload.
Somewhere in this list is a resource that will be perfect for you. Somewhere you’ll find a resource that’ll take your traffic to the next level.
Ready to find out which one?
You’ve heard it many times before.
The key to getting tons of attention, a boatload of subscribers, and a massive audience of raving fans is to write epic content.
Create content that rocks your readers’ worlds and you’ll live happily ever after.
It’s almost a blogging mantra, but you might just strangle the next person who says it.
Because while everybody tells you how great your content must be, almost nobody tells you how to do it.
Which makes the advice next to useless.
The “how” of epic content stays a secret known only to a few popular bloggers. And they’re keeping it to themselves.
That’s about to change…
Do you hear that?
Drip, drip, drip.
That’s the sound of sweat falling from a blogger’s brow.
Drip, drip, drip.
Writing an effective opening is damn hard work. If you don’t hook your reader within the first eight seconds, they’ll click a link and disappear, perhaps forever.
Drip, drip, drip.
That sound is the difference between an amateur and a professional. Whether you write for a living or not, breaking sweat over your openings is a sign you’re serious about your craft.
Like Stephen King.
Even he admits he spends months perfecting the beginnings to his stories. That’s because, book or blog post, the rules are the same: lose your reader in the beginning and you’ve lost them for good.
But, what if you don’t have the luxury of spending as much time as it takes? What if a deadline is looming? And what if you know your post could be great, but you’re not sure how to begin?
You just need some simple formulas you can copy. Formulas that practically guarantee that you open strong every time.
But my eight seconds are up.
So let’s get started.
I bet you’ve done it.
Seen a blog post that received thousands of shares, and thought:
“One day, that will be me.”
Or more likely, “Boy, I wish that could be me.”
But what’s the secret behind those super popular posts? What’s the writer doing that you’re not?
After all, your content is just as good or better, but your results are embarrassing in comparison.
You just can’t seem to figure out the whole “viral” thing.
Here’s the part you’re missing.
Certain types of content are more likely to be shared than others.
Sure, quality is important. But some posts have shareability in their DNA.
And one type in particular is almost guaranteed to catch fire on social media…
