Want to increase your website traffic?
In this post I’m going to show you a quick solution for killing your procrastination and taking immediate action to start driving traffic to your site.
I’ve shown people how I got 10,000 visitors to this blog within just a few months.
Those who took action and applied what they learned saw an immediate improvement in their website traffic.
But I realize – not everyone does that.
I receive emails from readers telling me they feel nervous when trying to venture into new things.
Email outreach, community marketing, paid ads, and other traffic activities all make them nervous.
“What if nobody replies to my emails?”
“What if I get banned from Reddit?”
“What if Facebook ads burn my pocket?”
These are the questions that pound their minds, causing hesitation and procrastination.
I’ve been there, too.
I know what it feels like when facing a move out of a comfort zone, taking those first steps, trying new things, taking a risk…
Tomorrow sounds like a great time to do it. Or maybe the day after that.
Emotionally it’s not easy.
If that’s the position you’re in, here is an approach that can help you:
Start small, and forget about getting results.
Say you want to try Facebook ad; don’t spend $100 in one day.
Instead, spend $5 a day.
Pay $5 for ads, run your ads for a week, and don’t expect any results.
You’re just running tests, playing with ideas, learning the ropes. That’s the mindset you want to have.
When you start small, you know you can afford to make mistakes.
Even if you mess things up, it doesn’t have a big impact on your budget.
After all, a $5 ad spend for 7 days is just $35 for a week’s worth of testing the waters to see what works with your audience.
It’s the fear of losing money that prevents people from buying traffic. We want to use the small amount of money as a trade-off to get past the fear of losing money.
Treat it like a learning process and don’t expect results.
This way, you get to kill procrastination and get a move on.
Embrace the thinking: when you start, you win.
Results come next.
Trust me, you will see results once you get the hang of it.
Most importantly, get your feet wet and do things so you can bask in that feeling of accomplishment.
It’s the same when it comes to driving traffic from communities like Reddit.
Commit 30 minutes a day to posting in the sub Reddit community you are seeking to attract.
Don’t expect anything from your posting, just spend time answering questions, sharing your thoughts, and meet new friends.
Allocate small chunks of time every day to do small things. Don’t expect even one visitor to go to your site while you’re doing it.
Over a few weeks, your comments will receive enough upvotes (which leads to higher karma) to qualify for submitting your own posts.
That’s when you’ll start posting to drive traffic back to your website.
Repeat the same process within multiple sub Reddits related to your niche and before you know it, you’ll see some substantial traffic heading your site.
This approach can allow you to accomplish incredible things.
If you’re still not getting enough serious traffic, now it’s time for a change.
Does this shift of mindset help you to kill your procrastination?
