Are you following this fundamental rule of blogging?

One of the fundamental basics behind all successful blogs is this:
…. Find what works and do more of it.

Sounds simple right?!

The truth is that in order to find what works you need to be tracking all of the right things on your blog.

That means having the right analytics tool setup – but it doesn’t mean you have to use Google Analytics.

There are plenty of other tools you can use, some are easier to use and others give you access to insights that a regular analytics tool wouldn’t.

In today’s post for +Blogging Wizard, +KeriLynn Engel digs into some of the top analytics tools for bloggers. You'll learn how to use each tool, along with the pro’s & con’s.

The great news is that most of these tools don’t cost a penny!

You need to know what works to grow your blog. Use one of these powerful analytics tools to get actionable insights to grow your blog faster.

Is it time to experiment with other content types?

When you publish a larger variety of content types, you have the chance to reach more people.

Why?

People prefer to consume different types of content.

Infographics are one of the easiest ways to get started & they're super shareable.

In today's post for +Blogging Wizard, I'll show you the tools & resources to help you get started (even if you aren't a designer). And most importantly, the steps you need to take to drive a massive amount of traffic to your next infographic.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to check out the post, I've included some extra tips aside from the more quantifiable advice featured in the infographic.

Do you find that you don't have the time to do every single blogging related task that you need to?

I know the feeling!

So what's the answer? Outsourcing smaller tasks.

The end result is that we can actually claw back a lot of our time, and spend that time on what really matters - growing our business!

Check out this huge post from +Will Blunt to find out ideas for which tasks can be outsourced.

http://www.bloggersidekick.com/blog-outsourcing/
 
Do you want to earn back your time and SCALE up your content efforts?

Well this blog post and brand new infographic will help you do exactly that.
 
The day I decided to start outsourcing blog tasks was like a giant relief, a weight off my shoulders. I didn’t have to be everything to everyone anymore, and could focus on the game changers instead.
 
Getting your time back to focus on the real game changers in your business can be beneficial in so many different ways…

Here are just a few of the benefits of outsourcing blog tasks;

- There is less risk than hiring a full-time staff member because you’re typically not locked into a long-term agreement
- Usually the cost is lower because you pay for what you get. You also save on overheads and other business-related expenses of hiring someone
- Your quality can go up, especially if you choose to systemize tasks or hire an expert
- Training isn’t always required if you’re bringing someone on with experience
- It allows you to focus on the things you do best and not try and wear EVERY hat in your business
- Outsourcing puts you in a position for sustainability, because your blog is no longer reliant on your efforts
- You will start to see better results, more traffic and an up-tick in customer enquiries – simply because more is getting done

The great thing about outsourcing blog tasks is you don’t have to be a millionaire to make it happen…

All of the tasks in this infographic can be outsourced in isolation, which means you can start outsourcing things regardless of the size of your business. The sooner you do, the quicker you will grow.

A BIG thanks to these people and brands who featured as examples in this monster post;

If you are feeling overwhelmed and stretched thin, blog outsourcing is something you should seriously consider - it's possible with any budget.

Are you leveraging Pinterest to grow your blog?

A while back I read a post on NichePursuits about how Spencer was able to drive 2,000 or so visits per day to a site he purchased.

The traffic is there, so it's a case of putting the time into developing a presence their & creating high impact visual content.

To get started, check out this post by +Elna Cain:
