The first day has passed from starting my first ever online campaign.
So what are the results of becoming a top commentator in John Chow’s blog?
Well I got a bit less traffic than what I was hoping for, but it’s still a start. And leaving comments is a great way to build links back to your website. So I really can’t complain for starters.
Within the last 24 hours this blog got a total of 80 visits and only 12 came from John Chow’s blog.
If you can count – this makes a total of 18 visits but I am pretty sure that all the visits from Estonia are by me. It’s such a small country I live in that I’d say that it’s safe to assume that I am the only visitor to John’s blog from Estonia
It is my intention to some day write an article about Estonia – people from the U.S rarely know about it and mix it up with Elbonia from the Dilbert comics But Estonia is actually a highly developed country and I feel that it is necessary to write about the things happening in Estonia’s technology market because we are a few years ahead of the general trend. Things happening here are probably going to happen all over the world after a few years.
Why so little traffic?
The answer to why I got less traffic than expected actually has several parts.
- The majority of John’s readers are people in the internet marketing business – therefore they know the tricks someone could use to get their attention. For instance – If I had used the same marketing strategy on a high traffic blog that talks about cooking and food – I would have gotten a lot more traffic. It’s difficult to use the same tricks to get traffic that everybody knows and a lot people are using. You have to be creative to be successful
- John’s blog has over 20 000 RSS readers. Most of them read John’s blog from a feed reader and therefore never saw the link to Financial Jesus as a top commentator.
The rest of my traffic came from StumbleUpon where I submitted one of my articles myself. Evil, I know One of these days I intend to make an internet marketing campaign in Stumbleupon as well.
Today I am going to leave comments on another blog to test how many visitors I will get from there. Check back tomorrow to find out which blog I am talking about!
