How to Get Insane Amounts of Traffic and Subscribers from SlideShare

How to Get Insane Amounts of Traffic and Subscribers from SlideShare

Every week, you spend hours creating powerful and original content.

After all, great content is the secret to blogging success, right?

But you’re starting to wonder if the results really justify your time and effort.

You get worryingly little traffic, few social shares and only a trickle of email subscribers.

And it’s frustrating as hell.

As a blogger, one of your biggest priorities is driving traffic and subscribers to your blog, but so far, you’ve failed to find a strategy that really delivers.

You’ve tried buying Facebook Ads, “dominating” Twitter, creating visual content and pitching guest post ideas to high-traffic blogs.

How to Get More Traffic from Every Post by Republishing on Medium

How to Get More Traffic from Every Post by Republishing on Medium

Let’s face it.

Getting traffic to your blog is a lot of work.

In fact, more work than you ever imagined.

But when it’s time to write a new post, you can’t just type until you hit your word count and then click “publish.”

Your words have to be brilliant. Well-researched. Engaging.

And getting people to actually read those words is another battle.

Sure, you can send your post out to your followers and subscribers. They’ll love it and share it, bringing in a little more traffic.

The problem is, they represent just a tiny fraction of your potential audience. All those other people who’d also love your post, if only they knew about it.

As bloggers, we assume getting more traffic means creating more content, doing more promotion, and spending more time working.

Those things work, but there’s another way, too.

And you don’t need to write a word of extra content to make it work.

7 Emails You Should Send Your Subscribers (But Probably Don’t)

7 Emails You Should Send Your Subscribers (But Probably Don’t)

Annoying as hell, isn’t it?

When a guy who launched his first blog a couple of months ago is already getting dozens of comments and hundreds of shares anytime he posts something new.

While over in your world, a comment from someone not related to you is still a huge win.

What’s he doing differently? In fact, what sets apart all those bloggers who can rapidly build an insanely engaged audience from those who have to beg and plead just to get a handful of shares?

Is the answer really just “great content?”

Content is important, but plenty of bloggers put just as much time, energy and care into their content as those in the top tier, only to experience 10% of the results.

So what do the big guys have that the little ones don’t?

They have a relationship with their audience.

An Open Letter to Bloggers Struggling to Get More Traffic

An Open Letter to Bloggers Struggling to Get More Traffic

It hurts me to write this.

For years, I’ve been “the traffic guy.” Not only because I’m good at getting it, but because it’s the question on the top of every blogger’s mind:

“How do I get more traffic to my blog?”

To some degree, this entire site is an answer to that question. You’ll learn more about getting blog traffic here than maybe anywhere else on the web.

But there’s one giant problem…

It’s the wrong question.

And I’ve known it for years.

And I’ve said nothing.

Not because I’m an asshole (well, maybe). No, the real reason is I felt like we were serving the needs of the market. People wanted to know how to get more traffic, so we created courses teaching them how.
