So far, it seems that the most efficient way (based on what Google Analytics tells me) has been Google Plus. This is surprising to me. I’ve done a few different things – have been using Twitter, and Tumblr, and posting comments on others’ blogs, and joining others’ blogs. All of which seems to produce a trickle of visitors – but a really slow trickle. Google Plus? Just a couple of posts there – and I literally have one person in my circles so far – and people seem to be finding me. Admittedly, they probably are finding me because I posted on Sex At Dawn, and I guess people are searching on that, so I’m piggy-backing off a popular search term. But still….
So back to the contest – the idea is essentially that L and I should have a contest. There will be a variety of metrics, and a variety of prizes, and perhaps some punishments too. Because what’s a good game without incentives and punishments?
I’m thinking that the metrics will be:
– Unique visitors
– Time on website
– Total countries from which visitors come
– And maybe number of sites referring visitors
Google Analytics makes all this pretty easy to track, so we could just design custom reports, and have a daily, or weekly, comparison. L is worried that I’ll kick her (delightful, delicious, perfectly shaped, tiny) butt. But this will be a win-win contest. She just asked me what prizes I have in mind, and I confess, I haven’t really figured that piece out yet….
On all this, I’m open to suggestion.
