You know that excited feeling in the pit of your stomach, where you just can’t look away from your google analytics “real time” traffic? I may have been known to snap a screenshot or two on particularly epic days of viral traffic, because it’s just so surreal!
Who doesn’t love looking at something like this in the GA app?
But do you want to know the truth about that picture? It’s not the most valuable thing I’ve done this year. I love the fact that I was able to go viral with this post I wrote back in March, but it’s not what has kept my business going.
In fact, there have been so many other, more profitable things I’ve been able to do on my parenting blog, that will continue earning me a lot more money than this crazy, one-time-only post ever did.
The truth is, viral is fun, viral traffic can earn you a lot of money in the moment, but there is usually a LOT more value in slower, steadier posts that bring you consistent traffic and consistent income.
For example, this pin earned me $200 in 30 days, and still earns money every single month. That is doing a lot more for me than the viral post that is no longer relevant to people’s lives.
This year, I’ve made partnerships with brands that have created unforgettable memories with my family. I’ve made products I’m really proud of and I’ve learned a lot about the way I want to be blogging going forward. Al of those things mean a lot more than 908 realtime visitors.
Why am I telling you all this?
I’m telling you this because I know how easy it can be to get caught up in wanting to do something HUGE and obvious. Something that makes everyone around you take notice.
But the reality is, the quiet, steady growth is the growth that really can change your life and have a huge impact on your family.
I wanted to encourage you today to do what feels right to you – and to continue to build your blog in a way that reflects your passions and the things that are most important to you.
Sometimes, that will lead to crazy viral posts, but a lot of the time it will lead to a steady growth that will turn into something truly amazing that can generate long-term income for your family.
While the world gushes over viral views, lives are changed by small, steady and authentic connections. An ideal business has a good mixture of both to keep things balanced out.
I try to get 1 or 2 crazy epic virals a year, and spend the rest of my time building core-content that will last forever.
As you strive to find your perfect balance between building long term steady traffic/income and creating those virals we love to share – I wanted to make sure you have the chance to get in on the Cyber Monday deal for the Profitable Blogging Framework.
This Framework will help you learn how to create viral content for your audience (and how to make the most of it when you do), but it will also teach you ethical, ways to build your blog into something life changing, for you and your readers.
I’ve talked to dozens of successful bloggers that I admire, and gotten them, to do a deep-dive into their specific area of expertise.
It’s a well-rounded resource that can help you grow in EVERY area of your blog. And honestly? I’ve been blogging for 12 years, and I’m STILL learning and implementing tools and tricks I learned from these speakers in the framework.
There’s not another blogging resource like this, that will give you access to the wealth of knowledge that more than 40 successful bloggers have to offer, instead of just one or two people.
As a THRIFTY blogger myself, I make a point not to tell you about resources that I don’t 100% believe can have an amazing ROI. This framework will save you money now and in the long run because it GROWS WITH YOU. It’s not just about beginning blogging (though there is a WEALTH of information for beginners here too), but it’s a resource you can literally use for years as you learn, grow and implement the tools from the speakers. in fact, every speaker that attended other sessions reported that they were learning from EACH OTHER and filling in the blanks in their own business strategies.
Also? You can download the Profit Planner and take the challenge to earn your money back in the next 6 weeks.
But here’s the thing – Today is the LAST DAY you can get in on the cyber Monday deal It’s $97 right now but will go back to the regular price of $199 at midnight CST.
Don’t miss this opportunity to invest in yourself and your business at this epic price!!!
I’m excited to be on this journey with you, and can’t wait to see how your blog grows in 2018!
