Can you help me "break through" to the next level or beyond!?
I've been working on posts for 6 months. I've had a lot of fun, but it's also been a lot of work.
So far, I'm not really generating a ton of traffic. And of course I've had no sales. So I'm looking to move forward.
Most of my traffic comes from the "Need Website Comments" participation.
Here's what I (think) I've learned thus far about traffic generation:
- I believe I get some traffic through Twitter. Not only when I Tweet my latest blog, but when I respond and retweet other folks tweets. This is mostly a guess, because I'm not sure how to confirm this hunch.
- Another source appears to be when I post a video (no matter how elementary, as mine are!) on YouTube. Of course I also embed it into my post. But after I do a video, I seem to have a rise in traffic.
Some days I will have a spike in traffic, and I have no idea why.
I do use Google Analytics (I refresh first thing every morning -- always happy when there's a spike in traffic, though I have learned that sometimes a number will appear that will then be half that amount a couple of hours later), but I certainly have not mastered it yet.
Any advice on WA trainings that would help me better utilize GA?
I keep asking myself:
- "What makes me unique?"
- "What can I offer that others haven't already?"
My answer is: HUMOR. I love to write humor (I am a recovering standup comedian and clown college graduate, after all!), so am trying to figure out how to inject even more humor into my posts, while still keeping them informative, instructive, and useful.
Maybe some just for fun funny ones? Silly stuff?
I'm also thinking of using a tagline like:
"If fishing doesn't make you smile, why do it?"
Anyway, any advice on improving my performance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much!
