You guys. I still can’t believe it.
I normally wouldn’t type up one of these posts. You know, the ones that scream “SPONSOR ME!!!” They too often seemed a little desperate. And these posts are usually missing one huge thing: cold, hard evidence. I always told myself I would never just slap my PassionFruit Ads shop in a blog post. But this time? Even I had to make an exception to this rule.
Slapping the ad shop, that is, (please click on my Advertise tab for the ad shop) because you’re getting evidence in this one!
Look at this graph from my WordPress dashboard.
Every single day this week, La La Lisette has broken its record page views.
And, because ALL pageview claims should be backed up by Google Analytics, here’s a snapshot of the past 7 days.
According to Google Analytics, my blog received well over 95,000 views from January 5th through January 12th. I had 53k+ Unique Visitors in one week. This is what I would normally get over the course of several months!
Do I know how this happened? Yes, yes I do! But I’m not going to reveal all of my secrets in this post. Mainly, because there are actually way too many steps to list in one blog post. I rather share my success story with you over coffee. Or wine (always wine).
I haven’t decided to do this on a whim, either. I’ve been helping bloggers recently with a wide array of issues. Just read a few testimonials here:
Lisette is my blogging guru. I originally worked with her as she transferred my blog from Blogger to WordPress. Not only was my transition extremely smooth and painless, she has since helped me drastically improve other areas of my blog. Lisette helped me develop a new Pinterest strategy, including optimizing old posts for Pinterest. In the 10 days since implementing this Pinterest strategy, I’ve had over 2,000 new visitors to my blog and my page views have increased by over 30%. I could not have done this without her. Lisette is also extremely knowledgeable and has helped me with HTML fixes, content curation, and sponsorship strategy. I simply don’t know what I’d do without her!
Nadine – Back East Blonde
When I transferred to WordPress from Blogger, I had a number of issues with my site that needed to be ironed out, including redirects and back-end work that were beyond my expertise. Lisette has been amazing to work with! She has so much knowledge, not only of coding, but also domains, redirects, etc. and she gave me a ton of advice in terms of growing my traffic. Lisette put a lot of time into getting my site working perfectly, and between that, her knowledge and her advice, she has become invaluable to me. I am forever appreciative of her help and fantastic advice and will continue to work with her in the future.
Niki – Glossy Blonde
These two ladies are awesome! If you aren’t already following them on Bloglovin, do it now! I love Niki’s beauty product reviews, and Nadine’s content keeps me going back every day.
So here’s what I’m thinking: I like to talk about blog stuff with other bloggers. Chances are, they (and their immediate family!) probably want someone else for them to talk “all things blog” with as well. There’s only so much my husband can listen to before his eyes glaze over. (I think he’s made it to 10 seconds once. Bless his heart). I love helping and teaching others. And given my teaching background, this just seems like the next step for me. I knew that I had to change up my sponsorship options because sponsor spotlights just were not working for me. Then all this traffic came and…BOOM. The idea was born.
To kick-off this new venture, I am giving 25% OFF to the first 3 people who purchase the Individual Blog Consultation using promo code VIRAL. The first 5 people to sign up for the Group Blog Consultation will receive 10% OFF using promo code LETSGOVIRAL.
