I mainly relied on short term solutions when it came to generating traffic to my opportunity and when it did not work I simply looked for another opportunity and repeated the same process all over again. I never gave a second thought to the fact that it may not have been the opportunity that was keeping me from success it was my traffic strategies.
I tried solo ads, banner ads, and various other forms of paid traffic and seldom made enough income to recoup my advertising costs. Certainly not a blueprint for success online. I had heard about blogging even set one up using word press. It was not an easy task and I never got more than a few posts before I quit. Now I know that was probably not one of my wisest decisions online.
The only thing I did right was to continue to focus on my network marketing training with a firm belief that success was just one course away. This is what brought me to Empower Network and their revolutionary blogging platform. I was immediately impressed with the feel and look of their blog though still a bit skeptical about how it would have any impact on my online success. So I set up the blog and posted my first blog but still did not see the sense and shifted my focus to the training. This is where my break through came and next thing I knew I wanted to learn everything I could about blogging. Blogging as a strategy for driving traffic to an opportunity was something I had not considered and the more I learned about it the more it just made sense. The most insightful part was that this strategy would work in the long term, was not subject to the whims of google, and the traffic was organic/free.
I have been blogging consistently now for going on two months and while I have not seen huge success I can already see an improvement in traffic to my blog. My blog is focused on helping individuals new to online marketing discover blogging as a viable traffic strategy for consistent targeted traffic to any online business opportunity. The best part is I discovered how much fun sharing the information I am learning can be and sharing also helps to reinforce my learning. The training pulls no punches regarding the time and effort involved before you see any results which could take as long as 6 to 9 months. I set my expectations accordingly and this new knowledge has refocused my efforts and my approach to network marketing.
