For the past 30 days, I have been working with the book Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers by Russell Brunson to help me learn how to expand my viewership/audience. Personally, I do not have a product to sell but Traffic Secrets was still a big help to me!
My “product” is simply my blog and social media, and one of the things that I love about Shooting Stars Mag is getting to know people and forming a community. I’ve definitely been thinking of ways to expand my reach and the things that I offer.
While I might not have a physical or digital product to sell to you, I did learn a lot from Traffic Secrets and I hope to implement more of what I gathered in the future. So far, I decided to create a newsletter for my blog! This isn’t a typical newsletter though – it’s called a Book Experience Newsletter.
What does Book Experience Newsletter mean?
I like writing book reviews where I can add extra information. A really poignant quote. A song that suits the book or characters. Even products that when given with the book Make It a Gift. I will keep doing this on my blog, but I thought a monthly newsletter focusing on ONE book would be fun. Not all the newsletters will be the same. I will have different “extras” for specific books.
My first newsletter is all about Home Before Dark by Riley Sager. I hope to send that out tomorrow, so I’d love to have you sign up. There is a box to do so in the upper right hand corner of my blog.
The Dream 100
Another thing that I learned from Traffic Secrets is all about the Dream 100. These are a mix of websites, facebook groups, influencers, podcasters, etc. that are doing what you do – to an extent. Basically, you have enough in common that you would want to be in front of their audience.
I think book bloggers understand this concept well. If you blog about books, you want another book blogger’s audience too, right? Obviously there is more to it. You can read Traffic Secrets yourself to learn about all the steps, but I loved the basic idea!
There are so many people out there that do something similar to Shooting Stars Mag. I like to think I add something unique and extra. I’m always working on that in general. However, if I could get my blog in front of other people’s audiences, that would be wonderful, right? Not only that but it allows me to connect with other people and expand my community – which is what I’m all about!
Let’s Work Together
I’m definitely going to try and collaborate with other people more often – and not just blogs. If you want to work with me, or have an idea of how we can help each other, please reach out! This can be blog or social media related!
I’m very thankful that I was given the chance to dive into Traffic Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Filling Your Websites and Funnels with Your Dream Customers by Russell Brunson. I think it’s a great resource. I know I will continue to think of his tips past these 30 days.

Oooh I think I need to check this out…
That’s actually an interesting way to look at your blog. Your newsletter sounds like it will be fun.
This sounds like it was a really useful read. Hopefully that proves to be true!
Sounds like a great resource! I may put in a request for my library to add it. I love your newsletter idea – very creative!
This sounds interesting.
I can definitely see the benefits of reading this one and gleaning lots of ideas from it. Your book newsletter sounds like just the thing.
This sounds like an interesting and very helpful book! I always love reading and learning about how to grow my blog as well.
At first when I saw the title I thought the post would be about auto traffic, lol! This is much more useful to a blogger. Although, car traffic is the bane of my existence (not as much since Covid-19, but still) so if there was something helpful about that subject I’d totally read it. 🙂
This sounds like a great resource for bloggers. Thanks for sharing it.
I have been seeing this book everywhere! I need to get a copy now. I am glad it helped you and gave you some ideas for expanding and growing.
Love your perspective on your blog and I think the newsletter sounds so fun
