I… am… so… STOKED! I feel like a kid who’s just found out they’re going to Disney Land, lol.
I’ve been going pretty hard last week creating content, promoting, and driving traffic. It’s been quite an adventure. This is going to be my first stats post ever in a series of weekly stats post that I’ll be releasing.
I’ll be sharing everything I did last week to drive traffic to my site and all the results that I’ve gotten for the week. This is exciting stuff!
I’ve always loved reading stats posts like this and now I feel like I’m doing some kind of special initiation to join the “cool kids”….err… the “cool bloggers” I should say
Facebook engagement is one of the biggest challenges that most bloggers are facing today. We all know that we need to have a presence on Facebook but what we really want is to find ways to bring our fans and friends on Facebook back to our blogs. In order to attract more interest and boost our brand we seek strategies to get the best position and obtain higher levels in Facebook’s algorithm known as EdgeRank.…continue reading…
Content may still be king, but relationships are definitely queen.
No one can vouch for this better than blogger, Ti Roberts who gained nearly 2,000 visits, 400+ Facebook likes, 117 Retweets and more shares in just 3 weeks of re-launching her blog.
I met Ti about a year ago when she reached out to me via social media. I would see tweets from her here and there, but one in particular got my attention. It read…
How I Got 1,325 Unique Visitors, 159 Facebook Likes, 70 Retweets, and 89 Sugars??
So I clicked the link to see what Ti was up to.
First of all, her posts are fun to read because they are enthusiastic, bubbly and even sprinkled with some humor here and there. Her posts draw you in and take you on a ride — especially the one about her SEO allergy.
So clearly, that’s the first thing she has going for her blog. But what I want to focus on is how Ti is really taking advantage of social media marketing.
And when I say taking advantage of social media, I don’t mean just setting your posts to go out on autopilot via HootSuite and re-tweeting a few links here and there. I’m talking about full-fledged engagement with actual people on networks like BizSugar, Scoop.it and others.
Since then, she has come a long way, honing her marketing techniques and refining her business model. And, she has great story about how she got started and became fascinated with building businesses online.
“I first got introduced to internet marketing when I was 19. I saw a video on YouTube of a girl talking about how to make money online with a cheap $5 business,” Roberts recalls.
Though Roberts’ first flirtation with online marketing proved a less than stellar success, she remained undeterred.
“I decided to join her in that business, and even though I didn’t make any money, being exposed to the internet marketing concept took hold of me and I’ve been hooked ever since,” she remembers.
Roberts has been at the business for a while now, and looks back on her experiences during turbulent times.
“It’s been 7 years since I first discovered internet marketing, and I’ve had many up and downs both in my personal life and in business.”
I have had a truly fantastic week! I’m telling you, it feels like I’ve been to the moon and back, lol. Collecting the first of my most exciting blogging moments has really been an experience that I’ll never forget.
