Traffic Tip: February 2016

Generate Quick Traffic by Publishing Tweetable Quotes

Building traffic is a hard ongoing process but there are some quick hacks that may give your site some boost now and then and actually increase your engagement metrics and following.

One such hack is publishing a group interview on your blog, or better, a collection of tweetable quotes.

Here's how it works:
  • Step 1: Come up with a fun actionable topic which would interest your audience (Think tools, common problems, upcoming holidays, etc)
  • Step 2: Approach your industry influencers and active Twitter users asking them to provide one short tip on a specific topic you choose (One-sentence tips are the best because they won't take too much time to come up with, so most of those influencers will reply!)
    • Feel free to use HARO and MyBlogU to get more tips sent your way
  • Step 3: Collect all the tips and create a beautiful article: Use visual quotes to highlight the best tips!
  • Step 4: Add a "tweetable quote" tagging the author after each tip
  • Step 5: Publish the article and notify each participant that it's live!

You'll see the flood of tweets and retweets from those participating influencers as well as their own followers. As a result, a traffic boost and more comments too!

You can't do that too often: Your blog might lose voice. But this can be a good monthly or quarterly column to spice up your business blog and get more people come and improve your blog secrets!

Stay tuned for the next traffic tip coming up in a week!
