Capturing Viral Excitement for One Time Events for Profits!
This year we had Super Bowl XLIX and it was as usual a big deal for a lot of sports fans!
This Super Bowl was different for me though, this year I enjoyed the game on a whole other level! An internet marketing level ;)
I'm still growing my online business and I'm still running into road blocks all the time, and then proceeding to smash them to pieces.
This is a marathon people and we need to develop a pace and a unusual enthusiasm for the foreseen success.
That being said I hope sharing this little success with you will help to motivate and encourage!
A week before the Big Game I had the idea to share a post helping Roku users (the subject of the website in question currently) to watch the game live and for free.
This post was sort of a shot in the dark I hadn't written for the website for a little while (my bad). I was just trying to get started posting again and wasn't sure this post would elicit much attention.
I didn't get to posting it until two days before the game day.
So as I hope you can appreciate the results kind of stunned me.
I normally of late receive between 35-100 visitors per day... here are the results of those three days (two proceeding Super Bowl and Super Bowl day) my post was live before the big game.
These three days netted me over $11 in Adsense income and more than 2000 visitors. All of which isn't crazy success (for others anyways it has me giddy as heck!)... what's amazing is that my post went from non-existent to posted, indexed, ranked and found by over 2000 people in a matter of a few short days! On the top page of many Google SERPs for relevant keywords.
To answer an obvious question, yes, this was an acute event, much like the Super Bowl, after Sunday the traffic went back to normal. I however am forever changed ;)
Keep Kicking @$$!
