Quick question – does anyone have any experience with Hellobar and using it to get people to opt into their email list?

 

I'm having a devil of a time getting anyone to join my newsletter.  I'm probably the world's worst at marketing, so it's hard for me to see what I'm doing wrong.  Can anyone give me any advice or tips?  I'm not trying to build a list to spam anyone, I just have WYSIJA setup to auto-email out a weekly post update every Monday to increase retention…

 

-Thanks!

Hello all.  Been having a great time trying to improve my site since I started the challenge a few months ago.  But have also been having a heck of a time progressing in rank lately.  I've been posting 2-3 times a week for the most part and trying to connect more on twitter.  I can't seem to get beyond  230k-250k (today I even went down to 260k! I'm not sure why though since my visits are going up gradually.)

 

In any case, any suggestions?  Thanks!

Don't be so hard on yourself. These things just take time sometimes and there's no magic solution or number. That's good you're posting 2-3 times a week. What's your average post length? Are you taking any time getting to know other challengers and members and making comment rounds?

In my limited experience (not to mention success Confused) Alexa rank is strongly affected by commenting. Do an experiment: make an extraordinary number of comments for a couple of weeks, then make no comments for a couple of weeks and observe how your ranking reacts.

Thanks for the advice and encouragement.  You're right I could do some more commenting I will try to increase that and see what happens.  Much appreciated.

I don't think what you are experiencing is that uncommon. My ranking stalled several times along the way. Even now it fluctuates depending on how active I am. Also I believe the Alexa ranking is based on a three month average. So what happened several months ago could still be impacting your ranking today.

Agreed. The one biggest difference I noted in my alexa ranking came from commenting (upto 50 comments per day) on fellow blogs/sites.
