The Tragic Mistake Most Bloggers Make

Most bloggers miss the boat. And they don’t even realize it.

They write and write, hoping to attract attention. They read A-list blogs and dream of the day they’re discovered, when they’ll suddenly be congratulated for their genius.

These people join Twitter and start a Facebook page. They get a cool-looking header for their website and make sure all the branding on their blog is consistent. And they wait.

And wait…

For what?

For that “big break.” For that one post to go viral. For the stars to align and the Fates to agree to send some sweet traffic your way.

But there’s just one problem: this moment never comes. And if it does, you have no idea what to do when it arrives.

Sure, if you work hard enough and get a little lucky, you might get a bunch of people to visit your blog.

But what then?

What your blog is missing (it’s not what you think)

You don’t need more traffic; you need better traffic. And you need to do something with the people that are already showing up at your doorstep.

Most bloggers don’t have a strategy. They type away at their keyboards with no idea where they’re headed — in essence, word-vomiting at no one in particular. Once they build an audience, they don’t know where to take it.

That’s a problem. A big problem. Because people won’t stick around a community if there doesn’t seem to be a point or a direction.

So what’s missing? A plan. A way to take that traffic and convert it into something that matters.

But how do you do that, while avoiding all the hype and fluff that seems to proliferate the Internet? (Don’t worry; there’s an answer to that.)

The opportunity you’ve been waiting for

If you’re looking to build an audience and turn it into something more than mere numbers, you need help. And that help should come from someone who knows what they’re talking about… Don’t you think?

That’s why I love Derek Halpern’s course, which addresses this.

Derek is the founder of, one of the guys behind DIY Themes, and a well-respected authority on online marketing and traffic conversion.

He’s the guy that Brian Clark and Chris Brogan call for blogging advice. And in the Blog that Converts course, Derek shares the exact strategies we need to build a blog that gets a massive amount of readers who will stick around.

Here’s what you’ll learn

  • The #1 reason why most blogs struggle to get just one comment.
  • Three dumb pieces of advice that “experts” give — and what to do instead.
  • The single worst pitfall that trips up new and experienced bloggers (and how to overcome it).
  • How to build a popular blog without having to create a TON of content.
