I can hardly believe that another week has flashed past. This time last week I was in sunny Spain getting ready to return home after a wonderful 4 week break although my husband tells me I spent too much time on the laptop.
The truth is that I enjoy the making money online business. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t. If I had the time I could spend hours at it!
It was quite a shock to the body to come back to the cold here after getting used to 20C+ sunny days in Spain.
Although I was unable to put in my minimum of 60 minutes a day trying to drive free traffic to my blog for two days last week I have been making up for it this week.
The result is that my traffic has stayed consistant so that is something.
Instead of simply looking at this week’s analytics I decided to compare the past 4 weeks while I’ve been on this Challenge with the previous 4 weeks.
This past month has seen my traffic increase by 100 visits. So, consistently posting in Forums and Blog Hopping does work for driving free traffic even though it certainly takes some dedication.
Our mentor keeps drumming into us that consistency is the secret to success.
And Anthony Robbins says.
It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.
My Google Analytics shows that traffic is coming from The Warrior Forum and Website Babble Forum where I mainly post answers to questions as well as some blogs that I have commented on.
I still post in the Digital Point Forum although I am still trying to get my 3 “likes” before my signature shows up.
The problem is that until you get 3 “likes” you cannot “like” anyone elses post. So, if I answer a question posted by someone who has not got 3 “likes” he/she cannot “like” my answer.
I try to add something of value to threads where people who have the 3 likes “have” posted but they are hard to come by.
I sometimes wonder if it’s worth persevering with. Still, now I’ve started I feel I must continue. You never know, I might get lucky.
I have changed the banner for the Quick Start Challenge in the sidebar back to the one I had on there originally as I was not getting as many clicks on it. I think the current one stands out better.
I’ve added 3 new subscribers to my list this week from my blog. Not a massive amount but it is building slowly.
As I have not spent much of the £100 yet I have invested in a solo ad for next week so I’ll report on the results of that in the next update.
I am wondering if I should use the Popup Domination again. I might give it a try to see what happens. What do you think? Do you hate them?
