MLM Blogging – Three Simple Tips To Improving Your MLM Blog Bounce Rate

Do you know what your MLM Blog’s Bounce Rate is? Should you even care what your bounce rate is? And three very simple tips to improving your bounce rate if it is too high !!

What exactly is “Bounce Rate”?

To give you the very best definition of what “bounce rate” is, I checked with my very best friend on the internet … Google.

Google defines “Bounce Rate” as:

…the percentage of single-page visits or visits in which the person left your site from the entrance (landing) page. Use this metric to measure visit quality – a high bounce rate generally indicates that site entrance pages aren’t relevant to your visitors. The more compelling your landing pages, the more visitors will stay on your site and convert. You can minimize bounce rates by tailoring landing pages to each keyword and ad that you run. Landing pages should provide the information and services that were promised in the ad copy.

Quick story …

Several months ago, I took George Fourie up on his offer to do a free blog critique for my Attraction Marketing Training Kitchen blog. At that time, my bounce rate was just about 46% which is considered pretty darn good for a blog. The folks that were finding their way to my blog liked what they were reading, and they were clicking through to other pages of the blog. They were spending about 5. 34 minutes total on my blog, reading my information. This really is a good number considering the fact that most people on the internet have what I call “Information Attention Deficit Disorder” and don’t give most things more than 1 minute of their attention.

Well, things changed over the following months. I was experimenting with different blog post styles, linking strategies, content, and a few other variables. My bounce rate actually increased to 67.8%. THAT was just terrible. People were hitting the front page of my blog, and they were clicking away from that page. They were not clicking on the links that I had incorporated into the blog posts. They were not clicking on other pages that I have on the blog. The average person was spending only 2.38 minutes on the blog. AND … my Alexa rank was taking a beating at the same time. I am using my blog as a communication tool, a relationship building tool, a list building tool and a sales tool. Instead of making progress, I was actually losing ground. It was time to really start using some metrics to fix this problem.

To learn more about MLM Blog Metrics and Management, you can read a three part series that I wrote earlier this summer for thatMLMbeat.com about the M & M’s of Your MLM Blog’s Effectiveness …

How Google Analytics, LinkWithIn, Blog Talk Radio and A New MLM Blogging Strategy SAVED My Blog

A picture is worth a THOUSAND words … two pictures are worth paying attention to 🙂

Here is a snapshot of my Google Analytics Account from May 29th, 2010


Here is a snapshot of my Google Analytics Account from July 31, 2010 …

The difference is ASTONISHING !!

Bounce Rate went from 66.99% to 17.64%

The number of VISITS doubled 300 to 600

The number of new visitors decreased from 58.33% to 46.61% which means that I increased the number of RETURN visitors to my blog by 14% … (my optins and sales numbers increased as well)

And … people are staying LONGER on my blog now …

Page views quadrupled … 532 >> 2,559

Pages per visit  more than doubled … 1.71 >> 4.23

Average time on my blog increased from …  3.15 minutes >>4.04 minutes

This all happened in 60 days !!


What Did I Change And What YOU Can Do To Improve YOUR MLM Blogging Results

I paid attention to the NUMBERS that I was getting from Google Analytics

There was obviously something that I was doing wrong. So I took a very detached look at the numbers.

  • People simply weren’t staying on my blog very long at all. WHY?

The way I had the information organized and presented was NOT very user friendly. I changed the layout and structure of the blog. I also decided to use a plugin that I learned about from Ty Tribble called LinkWithIn. Results improved right after I did that.

LinkWithIn shows people small thumbnail snapshots of related posts that they might also find relevant when they are finished with the post that they are reading. It WORKS. I  saw an immediate improvement in the amount of time people spent on my blog.

  • There were alot of new visitors coming to the blog but they weren’t digging into my content and my optins and sales were falling off. WHY?

Hate to admit to this one, but I had started blogging for ME rather than blogging for MY AUDIENCE … bad move on my part. I am a decent copywriter so I can write headlines that attract attention. I also do a good job with SEO so I can get really good organic rankings on Google pretty easily. But, what I had forgotten was that if the information that I am blogging about is NOT relevant to my readers’ expectations … they stop by … take a quick look … and they VANISH … never to be seen again. So I went back to blogging about “Attraction Marketing Training”, “Network Marketing”  and “Marketing Mindset Training”.  When I started giving my readers what THEY wanted to read about … they started coming back !!

  • Social Media Is HUGE and Using It Keeps People On Your Blog Longer

No question about it … using interactive social media on your blog is VITAL to getting people to stay on your blog longer. And, if you do  right, your BOUNCE RATE will DROP LIKE A STONE !! I am currently doing a special Summer 2010 Interview Series on Blogtalk Radio. I started blogging about the interviews BEFORE the actual interview … preselling the interview. Then, I blogged about the interview AFTER it was done. I included a link to the MP3 right in the blog post. The MP3 is hosted on my blog so that when people listen to the interview, and these interviews are 60 minutes in length, they STAY ON MY BLOG alot longer. The number of subscribers to my blog has increased by 20%, the number of optins to my e-newsletter has increased by 25 % and my sales volume has increased by 10%. Blogtalk Radio is a form of Social Media that alot of people are capitalizing on. If you are not using it, you should be.

Another really cool type of social media to use on your blog is VIDEO. People love short, quick videos. My YouTube Channel subscriber count has doubled since I have been using BlogTalk Radio. Coincidence … I don’t think so. Using video in your blog posts will naturally keep people on your blog LONGER because they are spending time to watch the video !!

By using the three strategies outlined above, you will be able to reduce the Bounce Rate of your MLM Blog.

Do you have a high or a low bounce rate? How has the bounce rate affected your blog? What methods did you find most efficient to reduce your bounce rate? If you have suggestions or want to discuss more about Bounce Rate please leave your comments.

I hope that you received some real value from this post! Be sure to leave your comments and suggestions in the comments area. And take a minute to share this post with YOUR Tribe!!

MLM Blogging – Ty Tribble’s MLM Blog Secrets Reviewed

Earlier this week Ty Tribble and Ann Sieg released a new two stage blog training course, MLM Blog Secrets and MLM Blog Code using a Launch Formula that was hugely educational in and of itself (a blog post about that is coming up in the near future).When I first heard about this new training program, I was honestly less than enthusiastic about it.

Before anyone rips my head off and leaves me nasty comments for saying that, allow me to explain why!

I have been blogging for a fair amount of time myself (not as long as Ty that’s for sure, but long enough) and getting a blog up and running for myself and for team members and private clients is a very simple thing to do now. I also teach small groups of brand spanking new bloggers how to setup their own blogs, how to choose a domain, get hosting, which theme to use, plugins, etc.

This is VERY time consuming training  and I can only work with a handful of people at a time.  I also have to charge a substantial amount of money for the training so that it actually is a revenue producing activity in my business. (Yes … it is called trading TIME for DOLLARS.) And that is where the rubber meets the road for a lot of people.

Many new entrepreneurs, especially new network marketers, turn to blogging as a cost effective solution to marketing their businesses on a really tight budget. Alot of times, their budgets don’t allow for a high priced training program. So they try to set up their own blogs and have no success. When they have no success, they decide that blogging doesn’t work and they abandon their blogs.

Here is another thing to consider. Setting up a marketing hub designed to truly support a network marketer/MLM’er is a bit different than setting up a marketing hub for a more “traditional” business or an affiliate marketer. And this is something that Ty specializes in. After all, he is recognized by the best of the best in the industry as THE top MLM blogger in the world.

After watching and listening to Ty, Ann Sieg and our beloved George talk about this new course at great length (I watched each of the videos they sent out at the beginning of this launch and took LOTS of notes), I decided to purchase this course so that I could get access to Ty’s insider blogging scoop and see if I could learn how to put together a more streamlined, less personally labor and time intensive training program for my own people.

Since price was never discussed during the launch videos, I was expecting to have to pay $97 for MLM Blog Secrets upfront. I was flabbergasted when I found out that I would only have to pay $47 for it during launch. I was SHOCKED  when I saw the upgrade offer of $195 (or 2 payments of $97)  for Ty’s MLM Blog Code My skeptical mind kicked in and said, “Hmmmmmmmm … I wonder what the QUALITY of this training is going to be like. I hope that George knew what he was talking about !!”

I downloaded everything, watched all the videos and took lots of notes…

MLM Blog Secrets

Three Modules – A Terrific Cheat Sheet – And Ann Sieg’s Copy Writing Class From Renegade Breakthroughs

This is a detailed click-by-click BASIC training that covers EVERYTHING someone will need to learn and implement in order to get their own blog up and running. Ty painstakingly covers all of the basics with great attention to detail. The best thing about this basic training is that someone can follow along on their own computer and mimic exactly what Ty is doing whenever they want to, even 3:00 am.  The cheat sheet is a great reference tool for folks that are just starting out and for established bloggers that are looking for additional content and syndication opportunities.

Bottomline, by the time people are done with this training, if they take action, they will have their own blog hosted and on the internet. They will have content on it targeted to their specific audience and should be seeing some traffic. This is the perfect training to offer people who do not wish to go into a private coaching program. And, as a team leader and business builder, it will give you back alot of time to focus on true revenue generating activities rather than systems training.

A question that I get all the time from my students and clients is ” What do I write about?”

The bonus copywriting call that Ann added into this course is over two hours long. It is delivered in both mp3 and mp4 formats. There are cheat sheets included, PDF’s, copies of Power Point Slides, and a bonus call with Master Copywriter David Garfinkle. What I really liked about this bonus is that Ann digs really deep into the mindset of what good selling is all about and how to create a valuable, pleasurable buying experience for your perfect customers that keeps them on your list for a long time.

Marketing, direct response marketing and copywriting are skills that just about EVERY self made millionaire has mastered and they are VITAL to the success of any business because they allow you sell your products and services effortlessly to the right crowd of starving customers. This call is worth 5 times the price of the course alone. (How do I know …??? I study with one of the best direct response copywriters in the business and I know how much I pay to work with him.) There is SILLY value here.

MLM Blog Code

This is the motherload of Ty’s MLM blogging success

  • Ty’s personal blogging success formula
  • Keyword research, SEO and re-purposing content
  • Building flagship content based on keyword research
  • More copywriting strategies and resources
  • How to monetize your blogging – affiliate marketing, properly funneling people into your business opportunity
  • Correctly using statistics and analytics for your blog including which plugins to use to make this as efficient as possible
  • And an in depth analysis of three of the TOP BLOGS in the world (NOT network marketing/MLM related)

I got a tremendous amount of value from these videos.  So much so, that the Attraction Market Kitchen is now undergoing a total renovation. Even better, the training and services that I provide both my team and private clients will be even more valuable than before. Can anyone say world class solutions provider? What do you think that is going to do for my business ? Imagine the possibilities of what it could do for YOURS !! 

Ty has poured his heart and soul into this training course. He is sharing his 7 years of successful blogging secrets with you for next to nothing. The presentation and delivery is top notch. The  bonuses are off the hook. I know what I would have to charge for this training to make it profitable for myself and it would be at least 10 times what I paid for the whole she-bang.

MLM Blogging For Prospects Works, Just Ask Ty Tribble

Recognized worldwide as the #1 MLM Blogger in the industry, Ty Tribble demonstrated consummate “SHOCK and AWE COOLNESS” (thank you Frank Kern for that phrase) this week when he gave away the secrets to his phenomenal success in an info packed FREE video training series that includes a speech Ty did a few months ago at an event that people paid over $1,300 to attend.

If you haven’t seen the videos yet, what the heck are you waiting for? Click right <<<===here ===>>> and come back to this post when you have watched Ty’s training. Yes … it is THAT good 😉

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post about some traffic challenges that I was experiencing with my main MLM blog. I got some Tweets and a few comments. One of those comments was from Ty Tribble which kind of shocked me actually. I was thinking to myself … Self,  why did this LEGEND take the time to comment on this blog post …??? Ty’s action made me very curious ABOUT HIM !!! So, what else does a curious Rose do but check this guy out.  And what I found out was VERY IMPRESSIVE indeed. So, I subscribed to his mailing list and I started receiving  helpful emails from him EVERY DAY that lead me to information on his blog. You know what? I am actually beginning to LIKE this Ty Tribble guy alot.

Success Leaves CLUES

Ty has been blogging actively about network marketing for more than 7 years. He has written more than 5000 blog posts during that time frame. He is the fastest distributor in the history of MLM and Network Marketing to reach $100,000 in income out of 50,000 distributors.
He was also the  number one team-builder and number one recruiter for his former company.
So, what was the secret to his incredible success?
BLOGGING and setting up a MARKETING FUNNEL that allows people to get to know him, like him and trust him at their own pace. And he now has the ability to MARKET what ever he wants to his LIST (me included) whenever he wants to. This is how you start developing a “Launch Formula” of your very own 😉
Some of the things that Ty discusses in those videos,  JUST in case you haven’t watched them yet
  • The right way to start an MLM blog from scratch (or how you can transform your current blog into a lead generation magnet almost overnight)
  • How to create MLM blog content that helps your prospects solve their problems and gets them to take action
  • Several simple things you can do to keep people from leaving (bouncing off) your MLM blog right after they arrive
