Trying to build my hobby/passion eventually into a business
Have a new-ish blog/website with some good content and trying to keep it going each week
Doing Facebook / Twitter / Instagram daily for 3 months, intermittently 3 months prior to that
Youtube channel about 10 videos so far, trying to start uploading 1 per week if possible
Have an email list with free lead magnet that I'm offering in all social posts and on my website everywhere, have about 80 subscribers
Just started adding affiliate links into my content to at least try and make a little money to re-invest back into things but I know it will take lots of validated traffic to happen.
Social media is killing me, particularly the facebook page changes that have cut me off from my audience, not that I had much going on there anyway (only 300 Page Likes and low engagement)
In general, having trouble getting traction, followers, growth, traffic to site, subscribers, etc.
I can't afford to buy ads, boost posts, pay for fancy services or tools, etc. Don't have much money, and don't yet have a product to sell or way to make money back (no ROI possible from expenses...yet)
Without spending money, what would be the 3-5 most effective and impactful actions / tactics I could do (which are "up to date" with 2018) that just take elbow grease, to get more traction, more followers, more newsletter subscribers, more traffic to my website, etc.?
I think my priority goals right now are quality website traffic, validated optins, and YouTube subscribers.
