How I Doubled My Blog Traffic in Less Than 6 Months

30 Days of Q&A - Day Nine

What is the key to explosive growth on your blog or platform? After more than 3 years blogging, I more than doubled my blog traffic in only 6 months. When I share that, I naturally get asked how I did it. In today’s video, I share exactly how.

For more than three years, I tried to speak to everyone. So I effectively spoke to no one.

The single thing I did to more than double my blog traffic (and more than quadruple my online income) was to get clear about what I was talking about and who I was talking to. Watch the video above to learn how you can do the same.

Question: Have you found your ONE thing and niched down enough to focus on that? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

    OUTSTANDING INSIGHT MATT! It can take a lot of time to discover the real focus that should drive our efforts, but it is time worth investing, and the sooner you get started the faster you’ll find it. What we say NO to is much more powerful than what we say yes to, and only by deciding what not to do can we deliver real value and fulfill our purpose and achieve our potential.

  • Great message Matt, super excited to see where you and Mark are going with your new direction!

    This past summer and even this morning on my walk I’ve been asking your question, “what is “that” thing I can do best?” One way to measure that question is, “why do I get defensive about _____? ” Or, “man I get excited when blank happens.” With a mind set that I don’t need to prove anything but just be me with my gifts. I feel in this season of life, I’m on the verge of that break through, and I have a feeling, I’ve known it for a long time.

    So here is my question to you guys, What affirmations can some one be looking for when asking this question to one self?

    Thanks Matt

    • Steve, ask others this question if you aren’t sure yourself.

      I did that myself and it led to all of this. All from simply asking what my ONE thing was to a mastermind group and continually getting the same answer.

    Sensational Matt.
    I advise customers to get clear what their specific narrow ‘positioning’ is before bursting out of the starting gate. But the truth is, I hadn’t applied it with a blowtorch to MY OWN business for some time. In fact because of this post, I just did a whiteboard session with my team to ensure we’re on the right track. Turns out we’ve some adjustments to make – nothing life threatening but it sure paid off.

    Life, online or offline, keeps coming back to this. I struggle with saying “No” and experience some really uncomfortable responses from those who have expectations that fill their “serving” needs. I’m tempted to do a blog post on this very topic, but fear of shunning holds me back. I love what you and Michael Hudson said about “No”.

    • 80/20 Kathy. You have to aggressively seek out the 20% of your efforts that produce 80% (or more) of the results and then be disciplined to focus ONLY on those.

      It’s hard at first but once you get used to it, it’s a habit.
