Well, as I said guys, I want to be accountable to you as well as myself. So here it goes. Today I will post my goals for the next 30 days. That’s starting here on January 22. By this time next month I want to have generated at least 1000 visitors to this site. You see the name of the game is traffic and if you don’t get traffic to your blog, you want be able to move on to the next step of trying to monetize it.
Quick Note: Traffic-Conversion-Sales. It’s just the way it is.
But in the beginning, you don’t want to focus so much on trying to monetize your blog. Just get the traffic. Once you get that going, you can then start implementing little things like affiliate links to help your reader with some tools they may need. But this is not important in the beginning.
Ok. Back to my goal. In order for me to verify this goal, I will post a screen shot of my Google Analytics to show whether or not I made it happen. Yeah, yeah I hear you thinking how do we know you didn’t already have that traffic? Good one. I didn’t think about it either until just now, so to give myself a launching point, let me jump over to google and grab a screen shot of my analytics as of today and we’ll take it from there. Fair enough?
Click the image to see the actual number where I started. At the top left you will see that it is from this site (jerryhandy.com) and the top right you will see that it is from one month ago til yesterday. Remember I start today, the 22nd of January.
So, let me get to work and will see the results in 30 days. Come back and check on me. Keep me moving in the right direction. Thanks and post a quick comment or feedback below. Bye for now.
To your success,
Jerry Handy Sr.
