Blog Statistics, March-June 2012: $231.14

In the past couple of months I’ve been experimenting with marketing on Pinterest. This has included trying to get more followers and creating a visually rich post (the 100 most beautiful places in the world,) which I imagined would entice a lot of people to re-pin images which would link back to my site. Since I created that post just a few weeks ago, the traffic to my site has increased by about 1,000 visitors per month, and I expect that number will increase dramatically as the post naturally begins to rank better in google search results. I am excited to see what happens!

I also have plans in the next few months to try a book giveaway (for my eBook) via Pinterest, I hope it can do well but I don’t really know what to expect.

And I’ve finally created a Facebook page for Escape Normal I am slowly figuring out how to use Facebook as a marketing tool.

At some point Id like to experiment with the price of my book to start to see a supply and demand curve, but I don’t think I’m selling quite enough now for that to be a useful thing to do.

Daily visitors from March-June 2012:
