This January I put up a royalty free music site. In the almost 5 months since, traffic is about the same. I get about 150 unique visitors a month. The site has lots of music on it. By the end of this week it will have 5,000 tracks.
But I've been essentially told that the music is meaningless. That if I want to get more traffic I need to put articles and videos on my site as well. I tried to logically wrap my head around this. Why would somebody coming to a royalty free music site looking for music to download to use for their own videos or whatever have any interest in reading articles or watching videos? It made no sense to me. So I ignored the advice.
Well, 5 months later I can see that these people were probably right. So I am going to do just that. I am going to write articles and make videos and put them up on the site.
The problem is, I have no idea what to write or what kind of videos to make. Again, none of this made any sense to me so I am clueless as to what people would want to read and see and for that matter what Google would consider relevant so that I can get more traffic.
Please help. I am not looking for a handout. Just some suggestions. I have made all over $300 this year after a $5,000 year last year. I am desperate. I will do the work. I just need to know what I have to do in order to make this site successful.
Thank you for your help. Again, this wasn't an easy post to make.
