Since I started this journey to making money online, I have heard that the key to getting an online business going is getting massive amounts of traffic (clicks or visitors) to your site. I’ve discovered that really is a gross over-simplification. What is really needed is traffic that converts… and I believe that the best way to have great conversion is to develop a relationship with your visitors.Let them begin to know more about you. Be of service to them. One of the first ways I have found to be of service is by making videos about some of the internet or website challenges I encounter and how I solved or overcame them. It does bring visitors to this site. I had 884 unique visitors last month. That’s not an overwhelming number, but it’s a growing number.
The next project to bring more visitors is a podcast. Podcasting is exploding and is a great way to introduce yourself to people and let them get to know you. I have chosen John Lee Dumas to guide me in getting started. John’s rise in the blogging, podcasting arena has been meteoric. No one has seen anything like the success of his Entrepreneur On Fire podcast and blog. In late October of this year John released his own membership/coaching program called Podcasters’ Paradise for everyone interested in starting a podcast or in moving it forward to a higher level. I have to tell you it is every thing it is reported to be and more. In addition to the numerous video lessons on every aspect of developing a successful podcast, John and his fiancee/partner Kate Erickson have created a community of podcasters that assist each other with growing their podcasts.
If you follow me on Twitter @NetCashFastTrack you will see that I Tweet often about all aspects of tips to grow your online business. Being an active part of a community of like minded people is invaluable to knowing what to do, how to do it, and why to make your business better. Podcasters’ Paradise captures the best of the technical points and blends them into an active relationship with others that can inspire, inform, and advise you to the steps that will lead you in the direction you are looking to move. There is every bit of the technical information about what to do and how how to do it, but for me, the new friends I have made inside the Podcasters’ Paradise Community is by far the best part of the program. I have gained a load of knowledge about putting a podcast together and gained invaluable insight on podcasting, running an online business, using social marketing to promote your business, and made some terrific new friends that share many of the same goals. I have also made new friends that are quite different than me. I have to tell you that diversity of thought is a powerful turbo tool to moving your own thought forward.
