Metrics for bloggers

Metrics that matter for bloggersEven though it may sound crazy, writing is quite a small part of blogging. Quality content is important. Very important. But distribution and monetization are by far the greatest challenges for every blogger. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how good the content you’re creating is if nobody is reading it or willing to pay for it.

Here is the big catch. It’s easy to post things on social networks. Understanding what happens afterwards and what works and what doesn’t in your chosen niche is the hardest part. You have to understand markets (your niche) extremely well to write content that people are going to really consume and share.

And you must have the necessary market insights to create products that people are going to buy. The only way to achieve that is with testing, metrics that matter and validated learning.

This eBook is all about that, how to measure your real blogging progress. Reading the eBook, you will learn why metrics really matter, the difference between vanity and actionable metrics, which metrics you should measure as a blogger (complete overview), how you should measure your metrics, which actions you should take based on metrics and insights and much more.

The eBook has 7 parts and comes with many free templates and other freebies:

  • Part 1: Metrics that matter for bloggers – understanding the basics
  • Part 2: How to make money blogging and financial metrics
  • Part 3: Website analytics for bloggers
