At the end of 2017, I decided to go ALL IN on my blog. I have always loved writing and creating content is my favourite part of having an online business ... so, it kind of just made sense, ya know? I've been a work-from-home-mama since my daughter was born and I realized that my blog was a totally under-utilized tool with some crazy awesome potential.
On November 5th, I purchased Melyssa Griffin's course, Pinfinite Growth. Melyssa Griffin is an inspiring online educator, who teaches online entrepreneurs and bloggers how to turn their passion into profit (sign me up, right?). I began implementing her strategies almost immediately, overhauling my Pinterest account and adjusting the way I wrote on my blog.
Oh, and actually writing on it - you'll notice from the archives some gaping holes that I will affectionally refer to from now on as The Lost Months. Consistency has been key and I'm excited to share some of the things I've learned and how it's changed the impact my blog has had.
(Yeah, bloggers write Income Reports and someday I'll get there because I'm a big fan of transparency, but considering I made about $30 from my blog, we'll wait until I'm actually monetizing, shall we?)
Ok, let me show you the numbers and then I will share with you some of the strategies I used to increase my daily website views over 500%. Now, remember, I invested in Pinfinite Growth at the beginning of November, so let's take a look at the past 2 months.
This graph from Pinterest demonstrates the growth in people who see my Pins and people who act on my pins. That climbing line just makes me so freakin' happy, y'all, I'm not going to lie. My average monthly viewers have grown over 46,000% and engagement is up almost 14,000%.
So, what does this look like day-to-day?
Well, the analytics on Pinterest show that my average daily saves and daily people saving is up 1,800%. While 14 daily saves doesn't seem like a lot yet, it's definitely some huge growth!
Now, these are the stats from my website (I use Weebly - I know most bloggers prefer Wordpress, but I've been using Weebly since my education days and I love it too much to leave it. You can find out more about the platform here).
The continued growth in my blog is clear; obviously, some days have huge spikes in traffic, thanks to well-performing pins, but the growth is mostly up!
So, How Did I Make This Growth HAppen?
Here are the top 5 strategies I have used to grow my blog!
