Contributors Help Your Blog

Recently we heard from Eric Gall of Florida Business Exchange, Inc. He has been blogging for three years averaging 50 “hits” a day.

On the advice of a friend, Eric added three guest authors. The very next day, the number of hits nearly tripled the previous week’s average. For three consecutive days, the blog received 143, 111 and 147 hits. That equates to a 167% increase in activity. Eric says he also receives more Goggle +1’s and comments.

Eric admits that he has done “zero research.” What he has done is listen, test, evaluate and decide. “Simple as that,” says Eric.

Good advice.

Anyone else invite contributors to their blog?
