It has been a few months since we’ve done an ask the readers post, so let’s dive right in to today’s question.
What is the most tired advice you hear online?
Here at Think Traffic we always aim for fresh and interesting content, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what you think in the comments below this post.
If you can’t think of an answer, think about it this way: What do you think are the most cliché words or phrases in blogging, online business, or internet marketing?
Last Time on “Ask the Readers”
In our most recent ask the readers discussion about whether people blog to make money, make a difference, or both we receive a ton of great answers on all sides. There were 50 comments and my favorite one came from Rachel, The Minimalist Mom:
“Create something that matters.
My blog has been a complete surprise to me and has had success despite my less than savvy technical skills. I love it but don’t really make much money from it.
What it has done is opened doors and inspired me to pursue writing in other areas. The paid areas. Which is fantastic. My goal is to have a flexible full-time income comparable to my last traditional job by the time my son is in school full-time (2 years from now). I’m 20% of the way there and only work on my blog and other writing projects two short days and one afternoon a week.”
There is obviously no wrong answer because there are a ton of reasons to start a blog that matters, but it was really interesting to read how most of the answers revolved around a combination of both money and meaning.
Alright, back to today’s question.
I’d like to know: what is the most tired advice you hear online?
What kinds of recommendations are you sick of hearing?
