The Power of ‘Free’ – A Top Strategy for Getting Blog Traffic

This is my over-arching strategy as it relates to creating and gaining traffic for my blogs and it has worked every single time:

Create exceptional value at no cost to your readers.

The power of free cannot be underestimated!

As I mentioned in the video above there are a few things that you’ll need to do to make sure that you can capitalize fully on this strategy:


  1. Your blog must be focused as it relates to your content. Blogging about what you ate for breakfast won’t cut it – it doesn’t provide exceptional value for anyone.
  2. You must be consistent as it relates to creating these types of blog posts. Don’t deviate.
  3. Constant evaluation of your work. I think it’s ok to be hyper-critical at times too.

Remember, this assumes that you care about traffic and monetizing that traffic long-term.

Ask yourself constantly:

Is this benefiting me or my readers?

And I think you’ll have your answer.
