I was kind of reluctant to post this, but I've decided that some outside feedback would be invaluable. I feel I've been working on my stuff so much lately, that I may need a fresh pair of eyes.
I'm hoping that the avid self-development community here can help me figure out areas that I can improve on with my personal development blog.
Here's a little background on the site.
Name: Prosperity Clicks
Target Audience/Content: I'm really trying to target the work-from-home-entrepreneurial-oriented guys and girls out there. The ones who would benefit from personal development focusing on success skills, successful mindsets and ideas, organization, lifestyle, mindsets for wealth creation and prosperity, etc.
Basically the people who are interested in books like Think and Grow Rich, Rich Dad Poor Dad, The Science of Getting Rich, and personal development along those lines. Success, Mindset, Lifestyle
eBook: The opt-ins have been doing ok, I guess. So I suppose I'm presenting the book in a reasonable manner as it goes along with the content I'm trying to present.
The Problem: The problem I'm facing is that the audience, so far, doesn't seem to be very receptive as far as commenting on posts, sharing posts, joining facebook group/forum, etc. I'm not getting a ton of traffic, but I figured it would be gaining traction much faster than I currently am. I think pretty much every post has a call to action.
Email open rates drop pretty drastically after the freebie, seemingly, regardless of subject lines or content of the emails. I instruct my list members that they'll be receiving additional mails from me, what to expect, etc.
This is making me feel as though my blog may be unfocused.
Compared to other popular personal development blogs that I see, I feel I'm posting content that is unique, given the angles that I take on topics. Most other blogs just seem to post the fluffy feel-good stuff, without any mindset meat.
I feel the quality of my content and writing, while not perfect, is decent. I'm a guest poster at a couple big name blogs in the personal development niche and have no problems getting my articles approved.
Anyway, maybe nothings wrong with the site and I'm just lacking patience. But, if you guys wouldn't mind taking a peek and giving the site a once through and point out anything I may be missing, it would be great.
