In this blog review, we take a look at A Winning Journey from Benjamin Nguyen. It’s a lifestyle blog with a focus in motivation and success.
First thing I talk about in the video is the the exit intent pop-up. Currently using Sumo me but I would recommend using Optinmonster instead. It is much more powerful and versatile and will let you design much better optin boxes. The built in templates are great and you can also get creative and make your own
You need a lot more content. The website is a starting blog and if you want to succeed you have to start writing. Aim for a post everyday for 21 days. Then try 30 days and then you should be able to do a daily post for a long time. A lot of content doesn’t mean you will succeed, but most successful websites have a lot of content.
I recommend 15 to 30 blogposts before you tell people about your website.
You need a lead magnet. There is no reason for me to join your newsletter right now. Boring! Make it more interesting and give us a lead magnet that invites us to sign up and gains our trust. Develop your own lead magnet or get one that you can use from someone else.
Your pictures need to be better quality and I think they look better when you put them full width or aligned to the right so you can see the text flow smoothly on the left hand side margin.
SEO – you need to install the SEO Plugin by Yoast and configure it. All the basics for SEO are missing. You may want to look at this SEO section I created.
I recommend these plugins be installed and configured for optimal results:
- OIO Publisher to let you do the sidebar and other placement ads. (get it here)
- Optinmonster to replace the Sumome stuff and increase your option rates. (get it here)
- SEO for WordPress by Yoast. (get it here)
