How to Increase Blog Traffic | September Blog Traffic Report

Since May, I have been able to increase blog traffic every single month following a detailed plan.  While I’ve kept a blog for years, I was inspired to get serious in April. I read Blair’s income report and was inspired to increase my blog traffic for my business.  I find people always share the journey after they’ve reached the destination.  So, I thought I’d do something different and share it along the way.

My Formula

  • Publish 6-8 new blog posts per month
  • Post to Pinterest via Tailwind 3-5 times per day
  • Post to Instagram stories 3x per day with swipe up
  • Share to Facebook 3x per week with an article directly to the site
  • Send a weekly newsletter with Flodesk (highly recommend)

Why I think the blog grew in September

Pinterest has been the key to increase blog traffic every month.  Do you follow me on Pinterest yet?  My page is up to 500K views per month!  I owe it all to Tailwind and my Pinterest assistant.  Also, sending a weekly newsletter helps a lot, too.  My click-through rate is up to +35% using Flodesk.  You can get 50% off your Flodesk trial using my link.  Lastly, it’s the content.  Every month I’ve been releasing more home content, and I see blog traffic uptick.  I’m planning more of that content around the holiday season!

I’ve always had a love affair with creation. Since I was a child, I handmade my gifts or combined toys to design something new. Fast forward twenty years, and I’m still making my gifts every holiday and designing new ways to do things.
