Niche-Focus Experiment Update: WOW!

So, a couple of months ago, I did something really brave: I decided to go cold-turkey on my whole “multiple niche” approach to life (and blogging).  I decided I’d spend 30 days focusing only on a single niche that had been sort of assigned to me by the universe. At the end of the 30 days, I received an invitation to participate in a pretty big online summit that was perfect for the niche – but the event was a month away. So, I decided I’d give it another month. The summit, despite a small hiccup, went incredibly well. In the meantime, I’ve developed classes, written more books and produced a ton of videos in the niche. I’ve even launched a research group and a support group, both of which are full of amazing people. I have a valuable free offer on one site that helps lead people to my classes, and tons of freebies available around the web for those who need them. There are all kinds of experts in my niche reaching out to me – but also (and most importantly) people who are in need of my work because they are exper I think the biggest reason I’m succeeding in this particular niche is that it’s one that is close to my heart, but the single focus factor is definitely in play. Over all, much like...

Get More Blog Subscribers With This 7-Step Checklist

Do you wish more readers would subscribe to your blog? Maybe you’ve checked out your traffic stats, and seen that people definitely DO visit. But your subscriber count remains puny. Don’t worry — you can fix this. In my experience growing my own blog into a multi-six-figure earner — and in reviewing hundreds of startup blogs — I’ve discovered there are seven elements that need to be in place when new readers land on your blog, if you want them to subscribe. You’ve got about 15 seconds tops to show these to them, so they quickly understand that you write about something they’re interested in. Otherwise, they leave. Often, some of these important elements are missing, or conflict with each other and create confusion. Here are the key ingredients you need, and how to blend them all work together to create a pleasing first-time experience that gets new readers to subscribe: A memorable address The very first thing new readers learn about your blog is its Web address, or URL. Make it memorable, so that if they want to come back, they can remember how to find you. If your blog name is too long or weirdly spelled, you may lose people. Your URL might be just your name. It might be something a bit opaque, where I don’t immediately grasp your drift. If so, the other elements on...

Niche-Focus Experiment: Why I Won't Be Blogging Here for Awhile

As you probably know, finding your niche is the key to finding your place in the online world of profitable blogging. While I absolutely love writing about…well, writing… and my career in general, I’m going to try something new this month. I’m calling it the 30-Day Niche-Focus Experiment, and it’s the reason that this will be my last post on this site for awhile. Since I’ve received so much feedback and support from my work in the narcissism and narcissistic abuse recovery niche, I’ve decided to drop all other areas of focus when it comes to blogging and social media this month. I’ve been updating all of my profiles to focus on the life-coaching aspect of my work as well as the narcissism and gaslighting factors, and I’m going to focus all of my efforts on this niche for 30 days. During that time, I’ll work on several areas, including (but maybe not limited to) the following. Building additional, better and more effective resources for victims and survivors of narcissism. Adding freebies, premium coaching packages and more. Refining and redefining my social media efforts to better serve people who need my help. Making sure my sites are all fully user-friendly and properly interactive, especially those that deal with or point to my narcissism-focused content. Alternate opportunities for promotion, such as podcasting and blog interviews. Building/re-branding my YouTube channel toward...
