When I talk with people about the frustrations they feel in building an engaged online following, slow growth and insufficient time come up more frequently than anything else.
I get it. When I first started blogging, I would spend hours on an important post, expecting it would take off. But no matter how much time I invested, I had fewer than a thousand readers regardless of what I did. Not even my mom was interested!
And it’s not like I had endless hours to dedicate to breaking through the barriers in the first place. I had a family and full time job as the CEO of a major corporation. I had to fit my platform-building into the margins of my workdays and weekends.
After four years, I hit an inflection point. My site traffic took a major jump, and it’s been growing by leaps and bounds ever since. But I wouldn’t trade those slow years for anything. Why?
During the slow years I learned the strategies that eventually kickstarted my audience growth and magnified the impact of my message.
These lessons have enabled me to reach more people in less time. And after coaching thousands of people in building their platforms, I’m confident these strategies can work for you too.
If that’s something you’re interested in, I’d like to invite you to a free new webinar I’m hosting: 7 Steps to Faster Audience Growth: How to Build an Engaged Online Following in Just 30 Minutes a Day.
