To grow your traffic in 2016, you need amazing & interesting blogs.
The days of writing 600 word blogs are so 2014. You will never get any traction with that kind of content. They are 2 million new blogs posted every day on the internet….including yours.
If you want to stand out, the quality of your blogs needs to get better. You may think that Blogging is not really Social Media, but it is. People will share your blogs on their social media account and this is a HUGE part of what goes on in Social Media.
Anyone sharing your blog is seen as an enormous compliment.
Remember that you are one blog post away from going viral. And by viral, I don’t mean millions or people sharing it. Viral for you may be few a hundred or a few thousand.
While millions of shares are possible, going viral is having your blog being read 10X or 50X more than what you usually get. Think about it, if you get an average of 10 shares and a new blog post of yours is shared 500 times, that’s an enormous boost in exposure. 50x more than usual is viral in my book. Make it a goal to have your next blog shared 5x more times than the last one, then go for 10x and so forth.
