As a reader of Think Traffic, you know that it’s about more than just any old traffic; you need visitors that are loyal, that care about what you’re doing, and that spreads the word.
And you know that if you want them to help you spread the word, it’s got to be because you’ve given them the valuable gift of “something cool to share.”
Now let’s be honest for a minute.
When’s the last time you’ve actually done that, and done it well enough for people to really start talking?

I believe the number one reason why people fail at building anything online is a lack of focus (and for good reason).
The online world is like a magical treasure chest, full of bright shiny objects to distract you from what you actually set out to do in the first place.

Everything seems exciting, and the possibilities to make money and become known are endless.
There are so many options to choose from that you want to get started on them all at the same time. Like launching your first blog, creating a digital product, video, or podcast.
Should you have an affiliate program or get traffic with an adwords campaign?
You scour the internet wanting to learn anything and everything from as many `gurus’ as you can find. They tell you to find a niche, write epic shit, and start an email list.
Then others tell you it’s all about Facebook advertising, you need a product, start a membership site, do a joint venture, get into webinars…..
Before you know it you are completely overwhelmed, confused and have forgotten what it was you were wanting to achieve.
In fact I reckon, that if you’re reading this and nodding your head, by now you probably have one giant mess. Continue reading Focus! The Ultimate Guide to Finding Laser-Like Focus in Your Online Business
I’d just spent the past 8 hours of my life working on what I considered to be the best piece I’d ever written in my life.
It was a guest post for a massive blog and it was perfect by all guest blogging standards. It was interesting, relevant and chock full of useful information.

I was sure that this was going to be the post that would catapult me from B-list blogger to A-list influencer.
I went to bed full of hope and promise that by next week I would be dealing with crashing servers from the flood of traffic to my site and hiring an assistant to help me sort through the fan mail I’d receive from thousands of new subscribers.
If only it were that easy. Continue reading How to Double Your Conversion Rate By Rolling Out the Red Carpet
Note from Corbett: today’s post is by Amy Clover. Amy just launched a campaign in support of a cause that’s very close to her heart. Watch the video later in this post to see exactly how she implemented the strategies she’s about to share with you.
Also, after Amy’s post I want to tell you about a very special live session I’m hosting this week with Derek Halpern, the man behind perhaps the fastest growing blog on the planet (Social Triggers). Read to the end to learn more and register.
Take it away Amy.
Last July, I got a sinking feeling that I wasn’t living up to my full potential.
I was heading up a growing blog (StrongInsideOut.com), writing about things that matter to me (health and personal development), and I was making a good amount of money doing what I loved (personal training).
The brand I had built around Strong Inside Out was thriving, but it needed something more to take it to the next level.
There was this constant voice at the back of my head telling me that my message should be bigger than me.
After a period of assessment, I realized that my brand was just that: a brand. The buck stopped there.
- I needed a bigger following
- I wasn’t spreading my message beyond my readers like I hoped to
- I wasn’t creating change, or helping as many people as I wanted to
In order to take it up a notch and really make a mark on the world, I decided to create a movement out of my brand.

We have been absolutely blown away by the incredible creativity and ambition you all have shown us over the past five days. The response to our Mentorship for a Year contest has been off the charts.
Chase, Caleb and I have spent the past couple of days devouring the nearly 250 entries. You made us laugh, smile, think and feel. It was nearly an impossible task to choose just one, but in the end we have a very deserving winner.
I’ll review the winner in just a minute.
But first, I have a confession. We came up with the idea of this contest as a fun way to build some buzz around the launch of Fizzle tomorrow. But after the response from you all, we knew we had to change our plans.
We’re still launching Fizzle tomorrow, but we’re dedicating today’s post to you, the contest and the winners instead of to the details about the launch. I’m so excited to tell you about Fizzle — I’m more proud of it than anything else I’ve created in my career so far — but it can wait until tomorrow.
Continue reading And The Winner Is…
Next week we’re finally opening our latest project Fizzle to the world. We’ll have full details for you about it on Tuesday, including special launch-day pricing you won’t want to miss.
But before Fizzle opens, let’s do something fun…
We’re giving away a full year of mentorship from the Think Traffic team AND lifetime membership in Fizzle to one deserving Think Traffic reader.
