It doesn’t matter what online marketing role you end up in, whether it be brand building, lead-gen, product/servic...
Doing business online can be very, very lonely. When you are trying to do what 80 percent others don’t, you are becoming more lonely that that. I do need someone to walk with me. A traveling friend who is sharing the same path, going to same direction.
Well, in my no off-site SEO journey in 2013, I’ve discovered great resources to help pointing me the right direction. And I just happen to meet one who shares the same vision. She has already miles ahead of me, but she has left a trail for me to follow – so I don’t get lost along the way.
She is the SEO Rebel.
Okay – she is a real person, not a fiction. Her name is Ti Roberts.
I’ve known Ti for her blogging work for some time, but I haven’t got a chance to shout aloud about her contribution to those sharing the same vision.
So, I guess today is the right time to do it.
TI Roberts runs TiRoberts.com. I know her for her articles shared on BizSugar.com, a popular social bookmarking site in small business niche. She is currently one of the BizSugar’s moderator.
Not long ago, she has re-branded her blog, now it’s called “SEO Rebel.” And so far, I think it’s a big success!
As the name implies, the new brand mainly evolve around ways to generate traffic and revenue without relying on search engines. From her case study, she has proven herself that her strategy works.
Her latest masterpiece is a case study, reporting how TiRoberts.com went from zero to almost 20,000 visitors in 3 months time without SEO. Here’s the MUST read blog post: http://tiroberts.com/traffic-generation-case-study/
If the blog post is made into an e-book sold on ClickBank, I would definitely buy it! Fortunately, it’s free for everyone to read – indeed, the best things in life are free 🙂
Why you should read the blog post? It’s simple: She shares how exactly she gets 20,000 visitors without Google and the likes. She practices Inbound Marketing like a pro; and due to the fact that she is not an Inbound Marketing expert with a decade of experience, she gives hope to many who are fed up trying to get traffic from search engines – just like me.
Well, my case is a bit different, though – I fed up because everything I’ve been working on for years was washed away by Google’s Penguin and Panda algorithm updates. As I’m not interested in following SEO trends closely and try new things that I don’t know whether it will work next month or not, I’d rather focus on non-search engine traffic.
So, I read Ti’s blog post and I can’t believe how I missed so many details, considering that I am a continuous learner when it comes to online business and making money online.
Here’s a spoiler on what you are going to get reading Ti’s blog post I mentioned above:
So here’s the current traffic sources that I’ve been actively implementing: BizSugar, Blog commenting, Social media (Facebook/Twitter), Guest blogging, Forums (WF/SME), Paid WSO’s (Warrior Forum Special Offers), Ad swaps, Building and leveraging relationships with influencers
As you can see – no magic potions you need to drink or mantra to read. The basics are there all along, but as we focus on SEO too much we forget that there are much, much bigger traffic sources out there other than search engines.
