That’s the keyword we are looking for.
Popularity is everything, I have talked about that numerous times, cause I want you to really get it, most people concentrate on all kinds of stuff like building perfect sites, or measuring every fucking useless thing, or buying everything that promises the world… and it all boils down to one thing – popularity.
It’s a bit simpler nowadays with the social sites and everything… but maybe not, cause there are a lot of fakers and it takes a bit more money to stand out, I’ll tell you how to become famous for free or little money with this article… if you have money, read this:
What is free (or close to free)?
That’s right – creating content
When I lost everything in 2011 and had money left for a soda only, I tried a few things online and quickly realized the only way to gain popularity was blogging.
I did not have money for infographics, I didn’t have a camera for video, I only had knowledge and huge brains… and I started blogging, several years later I own one of the most badass blogs online, have written the book that blows minds and have become somebody online…
…yeah it took me quite a while, but I have said it before:
“the amount of invested money is proportional to the growth time”
Ok, you know what to do to read my story, now let’s get started with the 5 types of content that will make you famous:
1 List Posts
Good ol’ list post are the bomb, people just love reading them, take a look at my most viewed posts to your right, they are all list posts… even better, take a look at any popular blog’s best posts and you will see what I mean.
list posts are the real deal, maybe cause they are easier to read, maybe cause they are more fun, or maybe both, but they really are.
Start writing list posts right now.
When I started this blog I had a guide to becoming huge online (I don’t feel like searching it out, go back to the first articles if you want and take a look), even though I was still new to blogging back then, and the guide wasn’t as good as my latest articles, it was what helped the site take off.
I had another guide I was sending to my friends (my subscribers, you are all friends to me… don’t tell me you are not in yet ) prior to giving away the first three chapters of my book and it was actually generating even better results than what I’m having now… the one I told you about the other day.
It went something like:
Day one: “SEO promotion: 11 steps to dominating Google, after reading this, you will want to give me money”
Day two: “Cheap Fb PPC, how to get penny clicks on Facebook”
It was a day by day guide and people were really digging it.
Guides take a lot of work and if you don’t have the time, it might be a good idea to pay someone to create them for you. My email guide had taken about a month, just keep in mind they are not easy to create, but will make you famous instantly.
Do I even need to explain why they are so cool?
Ok, let me just tell you they are the most shared content online and even though not as effective as a few years ago, they still are the ultimate type of content to get likes, shares and backlinks.
If you don’t have the cash to go nuts and crate the fanciest infographic, you can use Canva’s free infographic creator, it is pretty cool, way too cool to be free in my opinion.
4 Guru reviews
I hate that word, but that’s what people call you once you start making boat loads of cash… anyway, guru reviews are killer.
Pick someone that you know is already famous online and write a review about them, you can contact them afterwards and ask to share it with their audience, if they are too cocky and act like they don’t have the time to do that, pick another one and write another review.
The internet is full of fakers and people search out people on Google a lot, and reviews are pretty easy to rank, since SEOs like to target the huge keywords.
5 ‘How to get traffic’ articles
Everybody just craves to read about traffic and how to get more of it… although it is not really what matters that much.
