That's when I realized: it wasn't my fault no one was reading my stuff. It's because blogs had become much less popular. Driving traffic to your blog, even with GREAT content, was like trying to get people to drive 100 miles into the desert to get a burger from a sad, lonely little Burger King.
No wonder I was struggling!
Once I started writing where the people were, I started to see HUGE numbers. To this day, I keep seeing record-breaking views and subscribers.
For years, they had been telling me, "Start a blog! Provide value! Learn SEO! Buy a good Wordpress theme!" but when I finally realized all that wasn't true, I was finally able to break out of their chains and get the results I deserved.
The real problem is that blogs don't work nearly as well anymore (unless you have a ton of money to spend on SEO and paid ads - or if you're already famous).
Once I realized that trying to "blog" wasn't working anymore, that's when I started writing on places like Medium.com and began seeing HUGE results...REALLY fast.
I gained 30,000+ new email subscribers in the past year (and another 26,000+ Medium followers).
I hit the 1,000,000 view mark...in just 7 months.
I was able to turn my influence into a full-time writing business in just 12 months.
But it's not just me. Take a look at what this new strategy has done for my colleague, Rachel C.
