Our Business Grows Quicker When We Get Some Support ~ Part Two
Yesterday, I shared how it only took 14 days to get my blog up, from idea to launch. Today I'm sharing what happened next.
Mums Got A Business.com was ready to launch on Monday 21st of March, but that wasn’t where the hard work finished.
Putting up a blog and sitting back to wait for the traffic to arrive is like opening a shop and waiting for the customers to come and find you – you will be very disappointed.
I also visited forums in my new niche and commented on other blogs in related niches.
But the most important thing I did was to ask for support from the communities I belong to: Connie Ragen Green’s 21 Day Productivity Challenge and Helen Rappy’s 30 Day Productivity Challenge.
When you’re a member of an online group you are like a little family and we all want to give support and help each other’s businesses grow. I was absolutely delighted with the reaction from my online family – I just knew they were 100% behind me, cheering me on.
At the end of that first day I looked at my statistics and this is what they said:
I’d had over 100 visitors to the blog
46 people shared my link on facebook
7 people had retweeted me
9 comments were left on the blog
This resulted in:
20 people signing up for my short report
8 people agreeing to be interviewed and featured on the blog
3 people approached me to become JV partners in the future
Update: Just over a week after launch date I have made my first 2 sales from my blog – WooHoo!
Stop Press: I've just had Mums Got A Business.com featured on Family Friendly Working's Blog Carnival with the best mummy bloggers in Britain! And I've been approached to be in a book all about mumpreneurs ~ good going for my first week 🙂
I Hope this has inspired those of you not quite there yet. My message is to just keep going – it’s SO worth all the effort. I just know this blog is going to keep growing and becoming a great resource for mumpreneurs everywhere!
