Everybody with a web site and/or app dreams of millions of people in traffic and billions in conversions.
O.K. not all dream for billions in conversions, maybe just millions. The main reason is because is possible. Others have done it, you can do it too. That type of mindset was not common in the early 90’s. Pioneers back then, not only believed, they made that reality a possibility. Not only for them, but for everybody who endeavors in a web business.
In my web experience, especially with Rack up Skills. I learned a few things about traffic and conversions that might be useful to you. If they are or not, take a second to comment, would love your opinions.
From Zero to a Few
When I read Marks post on traffic and conversions, it made a lot of sense to me. He dreamed of a high traffic site linking to His, after a couple of years into His blog, it finally happened. To His surprise, the traffic came with a lot of issues. Like server problems handling that kind of traffic, little to no conversions, most of all the cost. Read His post here to get a better idea of what I’m saying. You can have more conversions from a few thousand visits. It is much better to allow natural growth.
Linked in gets millions in traffic. So you post an article on their network, hoping and praying, but only get 30 views in months. Then you post in The Experts Blog @ Rack up Skills (with considerably less traffic) and gets over 300 views. This dynamic is real in Rack up Skills.
What is happening here is the old cliché of quality over quantity or as I like to say, specialized traffic. The reality for success is not only in value content. But in building and maintaining visitor relationships. Figuring out your own unique formula for your business is key. When you grow to millions or billions in traffic and coversions you will be able to deal with it.
Best wishes and much success!
