554. That's how much monthly website traffic we had to our website 3 months ago. 20 visitors/day may sound encouraging if you're starting a personal project, but when your goal is to build a successful business with a team counting on you... Well, you're probably screwed.

    This was an excellent read, but I thought I would let you know that I almost didn't read it. After landing on your site, I got the top hello bar popup. As I went to close that, I got the welcome mat. I closed the two of those, and then was given the bottom bar popup. Hitting new users with three popups in a row like that is really frustrating for the users. I obviously know that popups work, but could you limit yourself to one or two and have them not show until users have at least had some time to see your site? I would recommend having them go off at different times, like maybe after 30 seconds and at exit intent.

    cool article! could you share source of traffic for each of your top 10 articles? I'm wondering what the breakdown is because some sources are more valuable than others (e.g. social vs organic) because they drive more/qualified leads. Some also drive insane amount of traffic quickly, but then tapper off (I recently got 4k sessions from StumbleUpon in 2 days. Unfortunately the leads generated weren't valuable lol)

    Hey Sean,

    I always like to see how others are generating traffic. It's amazing to see how others go from low traffic to as much traffic that you generated within a short amount of time. It's helpful and gives all of us some ideas, especially if we don't want to use paid advertising!
