Welcome to my first growth and income report, ever, för January 2015.
I will publish these reports every month to show you how this blog grows and what I have done each month to make it so.
Naturally these first months of reports will be short and not that meaty but they will grow and so will all the numbers (hopefully). Stick with it and success will come!
Let’s get down to business – this is what I managed for January:
I total I wrote 8 blog posts in January. Way below what I intended, goal is about 3 times that. However, I do still got a leg in consulting digital marketing and that takes a lot of time to managed and deliver, blogpost suffer at that. I will do my best to keep the content coming and my goal will always be 25 posts per month.
Articles for the month are:
9 persuasion techniques to boost your copywriting
5 insider’s tricks to growing your email list
9 issues that stop your conversions dead in it’s tracks
10 effective ways to communicate in outreach for link building
Inspiration: 99 blogs and startups with transparent income reports
Content marketing: 10 grammar tools to get your grammar on lock
Growth: epic traffic and business using a framework [100+ pp. bonus]
1 year, 365 days, 1 project
The ones that performed best was Inspiration: 99 blogs and startups with transparent income reports. Drawing in 50% av all visitors. Reason is this post was promoted by many of the people on the list, mainly in social channels. Key takeaway is that a short mail just giving them the heads-up on that the article has been published is enough to gain some traction.
Efforts marketing wise this month was that all posts were posted to relevant channels, including social and blogs. Some commenting on relevant blogs and participating in forums also occurred.
No paid traffic was bought.
Income for this month is 0, as I expect it to be for the foreseeable future. I have not monetized in any way but a single banner. And I will keep it at that until I gain substantially more traffic. Focus for now is to gain follower, subscribers and actually build an audience.
For the coming month, I will focus my effort on producing more content. I have 10 posts already brainstormed and structured. So those will be written and posted. Stay tuned!
I also have 1 guest post and 2 appearances as an expert advisor coming up. Hopefully, they will generate some coverage and add to my audience. I will let you know ASAP as they go live! I will try to squeeze in a few more of these.
I will continue to comment, post to forums, and talk with authorities in the industry, always trying to add value or a different angle on things.
With so low numbers this early there is no reason to comment all of them. There is no real trend and the numbers are to low to actually add significant insight. But in the interest of transparency, here they are. Come back next month or subscribe for a first look into the trend!
