Blogging Every Day Does Work

Last Update: January 21, 2019

For all you newbies out there "Blogging Every Day Does Work!"

At the back end of 2018 we started a new website in the make money online niche in readiness for the New Year. We had set ourselves the goal of writing a new blog post daily from Monday to Friday.

At the end of the day if you read any of the success stories here at WA they all say that they blog every day on average which just builds and builds your website visitors.

Online marketing is a numbers game!

The more people you get to your website, the more money you will make.

So, we have a top info bar on our website which is available via a Wordpress plugin called Hello Bar. Every week you get a really useful email showing analytics for the previous week.

So here is the analytics we got for the last week of December 2018.

As you can see we had 12 views (visitors) to our website that week with 1 click on the button on the Hello Bar which takes people through to WA.

Since Monday 7th January we have achieved our ongoing goal of writing new content every day Monday to Friday.

With that in mind, here are the analytics from last week Jan 14th to Jan 20th 2019.

That is a 4800% increase in website visitors in just 3 weeks!

As you can see we also had 5 clicks through from the bar straight to WA as well. As a result of the increase of visitors our referrals have increased as well.

In the whole of December we only had 5 referrals. In January so far we have already had 13

So, if ever you had any doubts that writing regular blog posts makes a difference, as you can see, it definitely does!

So, how often do you write new posts? We would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for this post and your encouragement to newbies! I plan to blog Monday - Friday like you ~ at least for my new site which I created through WA. Once I get into the trainings here, I'll start applying some of what I learn to my already established websites.
I appreciate these tips so much. Thank you!

Another interesting find.... My website is pretty robust as far as content is concerned, I need to blog more. But at times get a bit of a brick wall with topics in my niche, think Im hitting one today although yesterday i was very productive. Thanks for the heads about the hello bar. Love the idea but the plugins worry me....

Well done, and thank for sharing. One of my goals for 2019 is to write more content for my sites. I wish to post well researched, quality content for my niche, I agree with you writing daily can yield great results. I will try it as well and see how I fare.

Newbie here. However, I was thinking that I might just have to write a few weeks worth of blogs offline first, 10-15. That way, once I'm ready to start posting, I can start posting one of those a day while I research and write the next ones.

Jon- Thank you for the tips on where to find ideas and about using keywords!

Jon,
Congratulations - hard work pays off for sure.

I have been trying to post every other day to all 5 of my
websites which are already populated with over 50 posts
each one is almost at 100 so I am getting there and yes
I do see the visitors starting to increase now ::))

That's phenomenal! Good job on the growth, and sticking to those goals of blogging.


I haven't been able to blog lately due to horrible time management. But as of the year I have been aiming for 2 blogs per week and have been meeting those.

However

You've convinced me to blog more making a lot of sense that entertainment keeps the views up.

To spin a record every once in a while will never keep the crowd dancing ya gotta play those funky tunes often...

Why not aim for a quality blog every day? set the bar high and aim for the sky.

Great post, Thanks for sharing

Jon Lake,
You are on the right track,and I hope to get there soon. But right now I'm stuck trying to get my Website to look like something and I confess, I am at a stand still.
I've read all of Kyle's lessons, I've watched Jay's webinar and I've tried to figure out Word Press, but I'm not getting anywhere.
I hope the light dawns soon-I've got plenty to write about and hope to get on track soon--I hate log jams.
But, you are right- write, write,write.

Happy to do so if you wish

All the best

Yes, look at it . I'll take any help I can get. I think I need a new theme. I worked all yesterday and thought I had made changes, but I looked this morning and none of my changes are there.

Finally, Jon.
Someone who can show us the results of writing content every day.

Now, if only you could give me some ideas about what to write, I'd be more than happy to do the same. Are you just promoting WA, or are you writing about other affiliate programs?

Thank you for sharing this. It definitely is a numbers game.

I try to write at least one post per week but once I write one post I am ready to write another one. Therefore, I save 5 keywords at the beginning of the week to focus on each day. It makes the planning process a lot easier when I know what to research about throughout the week.

Congrats on these numbers! Please keep us updated on your journey.

I think Guys that is the Ultimate Aim

But I also think it will take time and experience to get to that point.

For it takes me 3-4 days to get a blog out with
-Research
-Content
-Editing
-Publish
But I know with experience that who process can be done in 3-4 hours

Nicely done guys and thanks for sharing.

Content is KING Always

Cheers

Absolutely right Dino, practise does make perfect. We are a point where we can, on a good day, knock out a 2000 word post in about 3 hours - done and dusted.

Great job! Glad to see your success.

I am trying to get in the habit of writing and publishing daily. I'm not there yet, but getting closer.

Thanks for yet another reminder that quality and frequency do count. I do not think that we can hear that message too often.

I am still struggling through training and not happy with the niche I chose. I am thinking about trashing it and starting over, I have been delayed in moving forward as I am just not sure where I have enough knowledge on anything to get peoples interest in what I could write.

I had this exact mental debate with myself in the shower the other day! I was asking myself what do I know enough about if I wasn't in the make money online niche!

Once you start thinking about it it is quite surprising what you come up with.

Great work, guys! That is awesome. I found that it really does make a difference when you blog every day. I try to blog every day. I notice when I stop my traffic takes a little dip.

Your results are amazing...Keep up the awesome work, because, hard work does pay off.

I’m not up to that sort of speed yet, I’m afraid. Problem is, I am doing most of my content research and writing on the iPhone. I think if I could use the Mac all of the time that I could easily double production. That would take me from 6 per month to 12. Still not up to your speed, but I guess as my technique develops I will get faster.

Is it possible for me to have a glimpse of one of your websites where blogging is done Monday to Friday?

Hi Jon,
I try to blog everday, but it usually takes me a day or two to finish my blog depending on how long it is. I haven't mastered the speed yet! I guess that just take time!
Thanks for sharing,

Brilliant post Jon and thanks. It's interesting to hear about your success and that you still advocate that blogging every day works! Recently a lot of advice I got from another training site was that daily blogging didn't work anymore and that one post a week with 2k+ words was the way forward. Good to know that your way is working!

What's your recommendation for word count as a minimum?

Great plugin tip by the way.....thanks!

Alex

Thanks Alex for your comment. Must admit last year we found it hard to focus our minds to write regularly. That was why we made it our main goal for this year.

We would recommend a minimum of 1000 words although we have managed 2000 when on a roll!

All the best Alex
