After 2,5 years of blogging, I grew my website to 80K organic visitors every month (check SimilarWeb stats: https://bit.ly/2SXIHRw). This led to automated “passive” sales every day without me doing anything (selling information products).
Just two weeks ago, I’ve decided to start a new venture! This is so exciting!
We’re only creating SEO-optimized content to help business owners grow their organic traffic. This is not an SEO service, nor anything technical. It’s purely based on engaging content that Google loves.
Our recent blog got over 2671 comments from real authentic prospects. Not spam. And there are 950 comments that are still waiting to be answered (yes, I got a bit lazy).
(This is not a pitch but it's just to show you that I got some experience)
If you're asking yourself "How?".... Let me share with you the secret.
The secret is…
The structure I’ve used on all blog posts created the high engagement and traffic on the website.
Consistency + Structure = Growth in Traffic
Now, in the next couple of weeks, I’ll publish a PDF document where I show exactly the 10 step process of building a high traffic blog post. The structure I’m talking about will be included.
But here is a short glimpse of the structure we’re using:
1. Choose a topic.
2. Jot down all notes and thoughts about the topic.
3. Figure out an attention-catching headline.
4. Write a short story.
5. Discover academic research that proves your point.
6. Find other posts that support your idea.
7. Go through the Customer Avatar Process to define the reader.
8. Figure out a Call To Action.
9. Write your content.
10. Publish your content.
You may be thinking “S*!t, that’s a lot of steps.” But if you get the hang out of it, you may at least double your organic traffic in 5-8 months. Anyways… Like I said, in the next couple of weeks I’ll create a PDF document that explains every step in detail. So don’t worry about that.
But there is something more important: A mistake that I made at the beginning of 2019.
I STOPPED BEING CONSISTENT.
The big growth in the traffic was through the whole year of 2018. That was the time when I followed the above process EVERY SINGLE WEEK.
This quickly grew the website as an authority in that niche. But as soon as I stopped being consistent, the growth in traffic did stagnate. So I highly advise to everyone who wants to grow organic traffic: BE CONSISTENT.
If you want to be the go-to expert when a prospect searches about their pain on Google, you have to be consistent in your content. Otherwise, don’t even start this process.

It’s simple as that:
Consistency + Structure = Growth in Traffic (which leads to fresh leads and automated sales).
