Want to really explode the traffic coming to your blog?
Over the last year I’ve experimented with a number of different social media and bookmarking sites and I’ve come to the conclusion that if you are in the ‘crafty’ blog niche then StumbleUpon is absolutely the best way to get your blog ‘out there’ in front of hundreds of potential new readers.
But there are secrets to working with StumbleUpon successfully, so you don’t end up sending your blog to the ‘StumbleUpon Graveyard’.
Over the past year I’ve been muddling along learning the moods and temperament of StumbleUpon by trial and error. And yes, I’ve accidentally sent some of my posts to the StumbleUpon Graveyard through lack of knowledge.
And then I was surfing the net (using the StumbleUpon Toolbar of course) and I read on Yankee in a New World that Caroline Middlebrook has brought out a StumbleUpon Course for Beginners who want to really boost their traffic. The advanced course, Traffic Rush, is not expensive but the really cool thing is…
THE BEGINNERS COURSE IS FREE!
And you don’t have to buy the advanced course if you don’t want to.
So naturally I jumped at the chance of getting ten free lessons from Caroline and I signed up to the Beginners Course. I’m about half way through the first ten lessons as I write this and I have to say that even though I’ve been playing in StumbleUpon for nearly a year, Caroline has still come up with a bunch of stuff I didn’t know…and that’s only in the free part of her course.
The lessons are excellent value and she uses short videos to demonstrate what she teaches. If you’re like me, seeing a demonstration really firms up a new idea in your mind.
So if this is so good why’s Caroline giving it away for free?
Well obviously Caroline’s strategy is that you’ll be so impressed with the quality and value of the Traffic Rush StumbleUpon Beginners Course that you’ll want to buy her Advanced Traffic Rush Course.
And you know what? Her strategy is working. I’m so impressed with what she’s teaching in this beginners course that I’ve already decided to buy the whole package.
Who should sign up for the free Traffic Rush Course?
Now if you’re someone who blogs a personal diary, you probably don’t care much about driving traffic to your site. But if you’re someone who’s creating a product to sell, or trying to earn money from advertising on your blog then traffic is a big thing. I’ve talked previously about using Entrecard to drive traffic to your blog, but StumbleUpon can be even more useful in sending the kind of people that are interested in your topic.
And like most things in life, you get out of it what you put in. So if you just read what Caroline teaches and don’t take any actions then guess what? Nothing will change.
So if increasing your blog traffic by hundreds or thousands (yes, I’m not joking) of visitors is something that’s important to you, then you absolutely have to take up Caroline Middlebrook’s offer of 10 Free Traffic Rush Lessons and get some Stumble Love happening on your blog.
And by the way, there’s a Stumble button under this article. I’d love it if you would share this with other bloggers by giving it a Stumble and even a little review if you have the time.
