Attracting visitors to your site can be challenging, yet it involves more than just having good content. You need to think outside of the blog box and create an event that can double your traffic or even quadruple it.
What happens, though, when you get what you wish for?
For the past three years I’ve hosted Working Naked Day, a virtual event that celebrates the freedom those of us who work from home enjoy every day. Sure, the holiday brings awareness to my site, but it also highlights the benefits of avoiding a daily commute, not working with a boss looming over your shoulder, and not having to deal with chatty co-workers.
Two years ago, a few days before the event, I submitted a news release to several free online news wires and contacted writers that had written about my blog and business in the past few years. Then I wrote a teaser blog leading up to the big day.
What happened on the day of the event was beyond what I could have imagined.
