Welcome to the 10k Traffic Challenge for May!
If you are here, you have most likely heard us talking about this in our Beginning Bloggers Facebook Group and/or have been receiving our emails.
What is the 10k Traffic Challenge? Well, I'm glad you asked. This challenge is about increasing traffic. Our goal for the month of May is to provide you the tips and tools for you to increase your traffic to over 10,000 page views a month in the very near future. Every day, Monday through Friday, we will have a new for you to work on.
We will be doing this by sharing tips and tasks in the group and in our emails. The bottom line is that if you follow along and put these ideas to work for your own blog, you will see a lot of positive results.
What is so important about traffic to your blog? Well, without traffic (or site visitors) nobody will see all your hard work. Worse yet, it will be nearly impossible to monetize your blog without traffic. It is essentially the same as opening up a great store that nobody ever walks into. There is no way this store will sell anything even if you have the best products on the planet.
So, how do you win this challenge? There will be no winners or losers, only participants. There will be some great prizes, but they will be awarded based off participation, not traffic results. We understand that everyone may be at a different starting point, and have varying amounts of time to put these ideas into action, so we want to make it fair to everyone. If you participate, and you are randomly chosen, then you will win one of the prizes.
What are the prizes? We want to make sure that we are providing prizes that are useful to your new blog. So, we've come up with a prize list that is filled with a lot of blogger “swag”. These things will either directly affect your traffic and/or earning potential with your blog. They are also things that we highly recommend all bloggers use to take their blogs to the next level.
Here they are:
- 1 Year of Revive Old Post Plugin – Personal Plan $75 value
- 1 Year of Pretty Link Pro Plugin – Beginner Package $47 value
- 6 months of Tailwind – $60 value
- New theme from Themeforest – $50 value
- Package of 5 gigs on Fiverr – $25 value
- 1 year of PicMonkey Premium – $47 value
- 20-minute monetization skype call with Heather and Pete – $399 Value – We'll review your blog and give you direct advice on how you should be making money with your blog via a video skype call. This is not something we normally offer due to our lack of time.
- Grand Prize – Our New Blogger Course – $299 Value – As you may have heard, we are developing the ultimate course for bloggers that goes VERY in depth on how to make money with your blog. We are not holding back on this one, and we tell you all the secrets that other top bloggers will never share. This course will be ready to launch by the end of May and if you are the lucky winner of this, you will get the course for free!
