BACK TO SCHOOL
We're heading into prime back-to-school season, and this is when traffic can really ramp up if you take advantage of it! Millions of people are hitting the web looking for things relating to school supplies and learning. Brainstorm about all the ways you can have content to be found.
In some cases it's easy. If you're the moms editor, you write about ways to ease the transition of your responsibilities. The distance learning editor can talk about preparing for fall. The journals editor can talk about writing supplies. The dogs editor can talk about managing dog care cycles around school schedules.
For others, brainstorm! The quilting editor can talk about quilts with back to school themes. The budget travel editor can talk about cheaply visiting college campuses. The vegetarian editor can talk about packing veggie lunches.
For everyone, remember that this season is when all minds turn to learning. It's not just about kids in physical schools. This is when adults think about learning new tasks too. So ramp up your ebooks and training material on how to learn skills relating to your topic area. People will be thinking about learning how to crochet, how to take better care of their car, how to fix the sink cheaply, and much more. Be there to answer their learning needs!
If you're stuck, swing by the forums and we'll give you at least 20 different ideas to get you hooked in. Remember, the big traffic tsunami is coming right now. The key is to set up the articles so you take advantage of it! If you need any assistance at all, we're here to help!
Remember to make all your articles evergreen, so that they help you not only this year, but during all future back to school seasons!
