Thank you to all our listeners who drove us to the top.
If you haven’t caught up with the show yet–you might want to see what all the fuss is about, now that we’re famous.
Oh, you’re wondering how we did it?
Much of the technique is described in Traffic Epidemic, my viral marketing product. So if you have that, you already know we used the Viral Containment strategy.
But this is just the beginning. Let me tell you what i’m thinking…
Two things really…
1. How long can we get the show to STAY in the top 10? (the longer we stay there, the more new listeners we attract…and the more traffic)
2. How do we break into the top 10 for the general podcast category?
If ever you try to run your own viral traffic campaign, these are the kind of questions you need to ask too. Because once you’ve broken into a top spot, you’ll only be able to reap the traffic benefits from that spot as long as you hold onto it.
So that’s what i want to do, obviously.
We can only do this with your help. And here’s what i’m offering in return…
Last week i started a Free Traffic Makeover Contest for our show’s listeners. The 3 “most helpful rated” reviews will get 30 mins of traffic tweaks for their site.
Entering the contest is simple.
Just leave us a review of the show on iTunes. That’s it.
To have the best shot at winning, you’ll want to share your review on Facebook and ask your friends to hit the “Was this review helpful–>YES” response on YOUR review.
(Make sure to tell them which one is yours, otherwise they might help someone else!)
Right now it looks like mattyb1979 & docganda are in the lead.
More details on the contest can be found in this short 2-min video:
So hooks us up, and we’ll hook you up.
And of course keep listening to our weekly Don’t Be Stupid podcast to learn more about traffic generation with me and Jonathan (our genius producer who made this thing real).
