Quite simply, it’s setting a 30 day challenge/goal for yourself. I use this strategy myself and have seen my end results skyrocket as a result. The idea is to set a 30 day challenge to focus solely on just “one” traffic generating strategy and implementing it to its fullest before doing anything else.
Guest posting is a very effective way to get a tonne of visitors to your website, build relationships with fellow bloggers, build an email list and to hopefully make some sales, yes? Well, for the first 30 days of your challenge, you write one guest post every single day and submit it to other websites. You will no doubt get a hell of a lot of free traffic and can begin building an email list.
For the 30 days you shouldn’t implement anything else other than guest posting. Read everything about it, research the best blogs to post on, find out the best strategies to use and write that post before you do anything else. After 30 days you should have 30 posts that each can generate anywhere from 100 – 1000 visitors to your website. That’s between 3000 – 30,000 potential customers to market to down the line.
After the 30 days are up, you should have a good idea of what worked best, why it worked best and how to implement this knowledge into your overall “ultimate” traffic generating plan for the future. I should mention that you “must” document your progress and define exactly what worked best. You will need this further down the road when you create your first eBook/Video course etc.
Next 30 Days: Forum Marketing:
Find 3 – 5 high traffic forums within your niche and set a 30 day goal to post 10 posts on each of them every single day, providing value, of course. Again, document what works best and which tactics you use are getting you the most traffic, and why.
10 posts in 5 forums each day for 30 days straight is “1,500” posts a month. This will get you a lot of traffic if you are indeed providing value. You will also be on your way to establishing yourself on these forums which can lead to great partnerships and opportunities further down the line. Make sure to document everything for later on when you create that killer product.

You get the point, right?
The biggest problem for a lot of people in this industry is too much jumping around from one strategy to next. The 30 day challenge forces you to focus solely on one strategy at a time. You have 30 days to learn everything about that strategy by actually doing the work. At the end of the 30 days you will have a much clearer idea of what works, and what doesn’t. Then it’s just a matter of separating the crap from the good and compiling the ultimate traffic generating system that you have proved to be effective.
When you have well oiled traffic generating system in place after all of this work you can write your own book or create a free traffic generating course that you can sell to people who will be MORE than willing to benefit from your hard work. This product will be fluff free and will benefit a lot of people. It will also shave a lot of time and effort they otherwise would have to go through to find out exactly what works best. You could also document your progress on your blog every step of the way if you like and get others to follow your progress.
P.S.. Just because you decide to focus on one traffic generating strategy for 30 days does not mean you neglect other areas of your marketing. On the contrary, your end goal should always be focused on refining what works best in this industry, adding it to your system and throwing away the garbage. Complete your daily task first, and then you’re free to do whatever else you feel needs attention in your business.
