1,000 website visitors in three weeks. Post 13.
Day 21. Post number 13
Hi again, how are you doing? I hope all is well with you. But today, there is some good news and some bad. I always think which one, good or bad should be said first. But I don’t think it matters too much.
Here’s the bad news first.
This goal will probably not be completed by the end of tomorrow midnight. It might, but personally, I don’t think it will. Here’s why.
I have set the hitleap program up and it has been running now on and off for a few days. But I must say to you now, it is very expensive in the way of using up my data allowance. But I have tried to be careful and I have only let it run for about two hours each day. That uses up about 1 gig a day.
If I am honest with you, I would say that I am not particularly bothered about the goal in general now. I know that 1,000 website visitors fell shortly after it started to run. As you know, I was using Facebook with a viral videos. It was doing really, really well until I ran out of budget. Then I had to stop the advertising and the video fell on its face.
So I turned to hitleap to make up for lost website visitors.
Don’t get me wrong, hitleap will get me my 1,000 website visitors. But I am just a bit concerned about the cost right now. Seems that this goal has delivered a home truth. That is, the fact that traffic does not come cheap on the internet.
But the truth of the matter is, I only get 10 gigs of data every month. If I continue to let hitleap run for the remaining website visitors I need to make the 1,000, I will inevitably run out of data allowance. I don’t really want to do that. But its my goal which is on the line here. My guess is that if this goal fails, then that is just a bad start to my goal striving efforts.
So, I want to try and achieve the goal. That would deliver a satisfying result.
So my idea now is to just play it by ear. I still have tomorrow. I can do a few hundred visits on hitleap in a day easy. The fact is I could do the whole 1,000 visits in a day if I choose. But lets just let it ride for now.
I’m going to put a few videos on this page so you can see how I was generating all the viral traffic on Facebook.
I will also show you a screen shot of my progress with hitleap. lastly, i’ll give you some good information about my next goal. Already it’s underway and I have created three videos which I have published on about 10 sites. I am aiming to get these videos onto the first page of google within the next 9 days. Just three videos on the first page I am looking for. The three videos I have created are for 3 separate areas in the UK; Cambridge, Norwich and Bristol.
I will give you all of the details as this next goal phases in and the first goal phases out. I don’t want to overlap the two goals. I would much rather create a new set of posts starting from day 1 for my next goal. But first, this existing goal has to end, which it does on the 6th of October. Tomorrow! And that was the good news.
Here’s the videos I made go viral.
This video below was the overall winner. It got;
95,766 organic reach.
My guess is that, if I continued to pay for advertising, the video would have seriously got some views.
At just £5 per day it got some really good traffic to it. The lesson I have learned from this, is to be sure to see the video through. Stopping the advertising was not the best thing to do. But like I said, goals are goals. It would have been pointless to step outside of the rules. I can resume with these videos at any time. Maybe I will and soon. But for now, the purpose has been served. The goal expires tomorrow.
