I was thinking it’s probably about time I started a journey thread, so here it is my next experiment. I’ve been wondering just how much traffic can I get from social media. So I set up this project to focus purely on that.
I’ll be using a brand new website, on a brand new domain and I’m going to grow the site using only social media.
All the social media accounts are also brand new, nothing is aged in, the whole setup is sparkling clean and fresh.
So far this has taken me about 12 weeks to set up, I spent some time researching and planning a 12 month traffic & marketing strategy. I have no idea if it’s going to work but it should be an interesting ride all the same.
The website niche is a sort of fun, comedy, and entertainment site. I’m hoping the site content will work well with social media and also, hopefully, put a smile on some faces. With all the crap going on around the world I figured a light-hearted site would be fun to promote.
I’ll be using social media in the following order
I’ll also be collecting Push and Email subscribers along the way, both will be on auto responders that basically just promote different parts of the site and encourage visitors to return.
For monetization I’ll start off using Adsense, but I plan to try out some other networks as traffic grows. A little further down the line I also plan to include amazon and test some CPA offers.
My first goal (I have many)
get 1000 visitors a month
So, let’s see how it goes, for the next 3 months I’ll be focusing on building up the Instagram account and driving traffic from that to the site. I currently have 34 followers and yesterday I got 5 hits
