ten-steps-ti-increase-blog-trafficSo you’ve created an awe inspiring blog post, some of the best content to hit your website yet, hit the publish button, and then waited for the traffic to start pouring in to read and engage with your brilliant creation which took 4.5 hours to write, edit and optimize. And then you waited. And waited……crickets chirping…..

Huge Traffic Generating Strategy #9…Build a Lead Generating Website

Or: The Big Kahoona of All Traffic Generating Strategies

build a lead generating websiteWelcome- to the launch of the new Omaginarium website, which, as you can see is also my blog, all wrapped up into one pretty package.

As much as I do this for a living, I have to say, that at 3 AM this morning when we were still perfecting the CSS, and fixing glitches, that this has been, by far, one of the toughest projects I’ve taken on by far.

It’s a classic case of the Type A personality designing her own showcase.

  • it had to contain fun and really valuable content
  • it had to sport some sexy new tools
  • it had to grow my email list
