How to Get More Traffic to Your Blog with Corbett Barr (in Hi-Def!)

SPI friend and confidant, Corbett Barr from ThinkTraffic.net , joins me in a unique, hi-def video interview where I ask him a number of questions about getting more traffic to your blog, especially if you’re just starting out or you’ve hit a plateau and need to get off of it.

We cover a number of important things, including:

  • What’s working for people right now.
  • Corbett’s primary traffic strategies (and there’s no mention of Search Engine Optimization).
  • How to start getting traffic when you have zero traffic and zero connections to people.
  • Tips on getting other influential bloggers to notice who you are and link back to you.
  • His two favorite tools for keeping track of stats and what to do with those numbers.
  • Plus a few more tips…

And in case you can’t watch the video, of course I have a transcript! It’s located beneath the video.

Here’s it is. Please enjoy!

[spoiler]

Pat Flynn: Hey, everybody. What’s up? It’s Pat Flynn from
smartassiveincome.com. I’m really excited to have my buddy Corbett Barr
from thinktraffic.net on the video line with us today. We’re going to try
something unique and different. We’re both on HD cameras and we’re going to
do a lightning round session where I’m going to ask Corbett a number of
questions about traffic, getting more traffic to your site. Especially what
to do when you’re first starting out or reach plateaus where it seems like
you’re not getting enough traffic. Let’s get right into it. First of all,
Corbett, thank you for coming on. I appreciate it.

Corbett Barr: Thanks so much. It’s always an honor to be a guest at
smartpassiveincome.com. I appreciate it, Pat.

Pat: We always love having you on the podcast and now in the video. I’m
just going to get right into it because I have a number of questions I want
to ask you. The first question is, and there’s a bit of background behind
it. But you have thinktraffic.net, you have corbettbarr.com, you have
expertenough.com and you’re also running the Million Dollar Blog Project on
thinktraffic.net. Where you have a bunch of people submitting their own
blogs and you’re keeping track of their progress. You’re neck-deep in the
blogging world and you understand what’s going on. So my question to you is
what’s working right now? What’s working as far as getting traffic to
people’s sites that you’re noticing with all your experience in blogging
right now?

Corbett: The longer I’m at this and the more sites I start and the more
individual clients I help. The more I keep coming back to the idea that
building a group of true fans, a group of people who are there for you in
and out, who are willing to tell all their friends about what you do
because you have affected them in such a meaningful way. That’s really the
way I see forward in terms of building a popular audience online. All the
tricks and strategies, for me, come down to trying to provide as much value
to each individual that you interact with, in the channel you interact with
them in. If it’s over a blog post, over a Youtube video. If it’s via an
email somebody writes to you or you’re talking with someone over the phone.
I try to deliver as much value as possible to each person so you win fans
for life essentially. That always works and that works more now that ever,
I think.

Pat: I totally agree. How do you actually give value to people?

Corbett: It starts with understanding your audience a little bit, I think.
Understanding the needs that people have. People have needs and desires,
and I assume that’s why people have websites. They’re trying to fulfill
those needs and desires. You have to get an understanding of what those
needs and desires are. If you’re talking with someone one on one, you can
ask them what they need help with and try to fill that gap as best you can.
If it’s a wider audience, then you need to think about composites of
people. Think about the types of people that are in your audience, things
you’ve learned from reading comments people have left, emails people have
sent you, from conversations you’ve had one on one individuals, and
basically take that and apply it to your blog posts. You can maybe think
about one or two people as you’re writing each blog post, and try to
address those people. If you really provide value to those individuals then
it’s likely that you’re going to be helping a broader audience at the same
time.

Pat: Here’s a follow-up question to that. I’m just starting out and just
put up my blog, I don’t have any connections whatsoever, how the heck am I
supposed to add value to people’s lives and have that work for me when
there’s no one on my site to give value to? What do I do when I’m just
starting out?

Corbett: Right. So, in that case, the foundation is always producing great
content. So to begin with, you have to create something that’s worthwhile
and that’s worth people reading. People, when they come to your site,
they’re asking themselves the question “Why should I spend any time on this
site when I already know of dozens of sites out there that provide great
content?” And they’re giving you just a split second if they do come to
your site. First of all, you have to provide great content so that people
will stick around. If you’re just starting out, I usually recommend that
people try to make a name for themselves among other bloggers and other
sort of taste makers within their space. It doesn’t have to be the A-
listers, but certain people who are maybe rising stars that you can reach
out to. You do that essentially, by networking with other bloggers, other
entrepreneurs, establishing your expertise on social media. You can
demonstrate that you know something about the topic you’ve chosen to write
about or create your business around by linking to other resources and by
writing interesting things on social media, that sort of stuff. Also,
linking out to other people is very effective. So, if I’m starting out, I
should start to position myself within the market I’m in, and I can do that
by linking out to other blogs or blog posts and resources online that I
personally find useful. And maybe add value to that, maybe add some colored
commentary to the things I am linking out to. If you do that, if you link
out to other blogs and businesses online, and you name names, let’s say you
include someone’s name. If I include a link on my blog, and I say “Here’s a
resource that Pat Flynn put out, and I really liked it.” You’re a smart
guy, Pat. You probably have a Google alert set up so that any time someone
mentions your name you get a little notice about it. Also, if I link to
your blog from mine you’ll get a trackback. Those are good ways to get in
front of other bloggers and start making a name for yourself. That opens up
the communication channels, so that eventually, you might be able to create
a relationship with those people and ultimately gain links back to your
site through those.

Pat: You’re absolutely right. But what happens if you’re doing that and
you’re linking out, and you might not be getting as much reciprocation as
you would hope? You’re trying to get on people’s radars but it’s just not
working. What else can you do to let other people know that you exist, and
you’re worth linking to and having a conversation with?

Corbett: There’s something that works really well for me right now. As you
mentioned before, I started a new blog called “Expert Enough”. “Expert
Enough” is on a completely new topic. It’s about learning new things and
becoming an expert at multiple things. This is something I’m not
established as an expert within right now, so I’m basically starting this
process from scratch. What I’m finding that works very well right now, is
to interview people within this topic. This especially works if it’s in an
area where people aren’t necessarily getting interviewed all the time. If
you’re talking about internet marketing or something, obviously, people are
doing a lot of interviews like you and I are doing right now. But, in other
areas, for example, with this topic of expertise, I’ve been able to reach
out to a lot of the people who are sort of, as I’ve said taste makers or
people who are at the top of that heap for that topic, and interviewed them
for my own blog and podcast. That sort of thing. That’s a great way to
connect with people, start establishing a relationship. Then a lot of
times, after I’ve finished interviewing someone, they actually share that
interview with their own audience, which is pretty cool. It’s a great way
to get traffic back to your site as well.
Pat: That’s a fantastic point. I know that whenever someone does an
interview with me and they post it on their site or publish it on iTunes,
I’m always happy to link out to it. That does absolutely work.

Corbett: It’s only natural, right?

Pat: Right. Totally. I think it’s important to understand that you can’t
just write content and expect things to happen. Even if you write the best
content in the world, you still have to build relationships and reach out
and get uncomfortable, I guess you could say, in order to get things to
happen. My next question to you is what happens if you’re an introvert, you
don’t really feel comfortable reaching out to people? How do you reach out
to people when that’s just not in your nature?

Corbett: A couple of things. First of all, don’t reach out to the people
you find to be intimidating in your space. Just start reading and following
people. The people that you feel naturally connected with, the people you
feel most comfortable approaching, start with those people. That’s the
first tip. The second is I think people find that people are very willing
to get back to you. They’re very willing to do interviews. I think that a
lot of people never make progress in these areas simply because they don’t
ask. But when you do start asking, I think you’ll be surprised at how many
yeses you’ll get.

Pat: When you really think about it, what’s the worst that can happen?
They’re going to say no and that’s definitely not the end of the world. I
would encourage everybody to push forward, ask, don’t be scared. You have
nothing to be afraid of. Always ask yourself “What’s the worst that could
happen?” I really like what you said about asking people who you feel
comfortable asking. I think it reminds me of when I first started out and I
started reaching out to other people. I felt more comfortable talking to
the B- and C-listers. Those people who were maybe just one or two levels
above me, at that point. I didn’t necessarily go for the top people. I
found that over time, those were actually the people who responded more.
Those are the people who have grown with me and some of those people have
since become A-listers and we’re kind of partners and we work together and
help each other out. It’s like how you and I have been progressing,
Corbett.

Corbett: I constantly harp on this with people. Those initial groups you
form can be incredibly valuable over time. In a year, in two years. In fact
I was just looking back on some posts where I had written about your
success, Pat, back maybe just 18 months ago or two years ago. To think
about where you were then versus where you are now, I think your blog was
maybe one tenth the size it is now when you and I first started talking.
Think about the people around you and look at who are the rising stars, the
people who you know have something valuable to say, and who you can see
doing something big in the years to come. Many of those relationships will
actually pay off in the long run.

Pat: Totally. I want to ask you now about time frame. When you’re just
starting out, how long can a new blogger expect to see results? They’re
doing these things, linking out, getting interviews from people. How long
until someone gets a significant amount of traffic, maybe enough to
monetize or enough to really get their message out to a lot of people and
influence people in the way they would like? Are we talking one or two
months? One or two years? What are your thoughts on that?

Corbett: That’s a loaded question. I like to use, if I can, a kindling
analogy. I haven’t tried this before, so bear with me if it doesn’t work
out. If you have the right combination of things, if you have a market
that’s ripe for information with low competition, if you have really
incredible content, if you focus on the techniques and strategies that are
going to yield you the most benefit for the least amount of effort. If you
do all those things, it’s like trying to start a fire with really dry
kindling. Maybe even with gasoline. In that case, you might be able to
create incredible progress in just a few months. If, on the other hand, you
start out in an industry that has a lot of competition, you don’t
differentiate your offering, you don’t necessarily have anything useful or
interesting to say versus what’s already being said, and maybe you’re
putting out mediocre content to begin with. That’s like trying to start a
fire with wet wood. It might happen eventually, but it’s going to take you
a whole lot of effort. My entire strategy when I advise people on starting
new blogs and websites online, is to get them to that point where they’re
working with dry wood.

Pat: That analogy worked for me. I think it worked for everybody else, too.
It makes complete sense. I want to finish up here by talking really quickly
about analytics. Keeping track of the traffic that’s coming to your site.
How are you keeping track? What are you doing with those numbers, and how
are you analyzing that traffic and what are you doing from there? What are
your thoughts about keeping track of traffic, Corbett?

Corbett: Good question. This is something where I think there’s a fine
line. Some people become so obsessed with numbers that they spend way too
much time within the analytics and not enough time producing great content
or being honest with themselves about how great the content is and the
efforts they’re doing to get off their site and network with ,people.
There’s a balance. On the other hand, a lot of times I talk with people
either that I’m coaching one on one or mentoring and I start asking
questions like, “What are your top sources or traffic” and they don’t even
necessarily know that. You have to track enough so that you know where your
efforts are working out, and where they’re not. If you’re spending a ton of
time, let’s say for example, on a social network like Google+, and you
don’t know whether or not you’re getting traffic from that network. You’re
just starting out and there’s 100 things you could be working on at once,
and you need to laser focus on the things that work. I would suggest you
look into your analytics. You can look and see if any traffic is actually
coming from the different things you’re spending time on. If not, maybe you
need to trim those things. Maybe you don’t need to be focusing on those
things, at least in the short term. Instead, look at the top of your list.
Look at the top 10 things that are bringing traffic, and put more effort
into those things. Because it’s going to pay off sooner rather than later.

Pat: You know those things are working for you already, so what you can do
is go to those techniques and go to those places and make them work even
better. They’re probably working because you’re good at that, whatever that
may be. So keep working at them. I don’t know if you mentioned, but what
tools are you using to keep track?

Corbett: For analytics I use two tools, and maybe this is a little
obsessive, like I said earlier. I use Google analytics because it’s free
and standard. It’s also the thing I installed first, so I keep using it for
continuity purposed. But, lately I really enjoy Clicky at getclicky.com.
Actually, that’s one, I think, I learned about from you originally, Pat. I
like it because it’s real time. It shows a different view of the data, and
it’s easy to understand and navigate. Those are the two I use for tracking
straight analytics and people coming to my sites.

Pat: Awesome. Those are the same exact tools I use as well. So I’m glad
we’re on the same wavelength. To finish up here I want to give you,
Corbett, the quick opportunity to share a little bit about Traffic School.
For those of you who don’t know, Traffic School is a course that Corbett
comes out with a few times a year. He opens up the doors and has applicants
come in and fills it up, and closes the doors and really works with the
group. I’m very happy to be an affiliate for this course. As you know, I
don’t really promote things very much. But when I do, it’s only for things
I’m really, really confident in and proud to put my name with. So, Corbett,
I would like to to explain a little bit to everybody what Traffic School is
all about.

Corbett: Sure. Traffic School is essentially a comprehensive program that
takes you through all the ins and outs of building traffic. It’s not just a
bunch of bolt-on tactics or strategies. It’s actually a comprehensive
framework based on something I call the Thriving Audience Framework. This
dives into your fundamentals, the foundation you need to be building on
your website. Including things like the unique selling proposition, your
differentiation, your branding, your design. All of that sort of stuff. It
then dives into content and what it really takes to create epic content,
that will almost spread the word by itself if you do it right. How to
create highly shareable content, that sort of stuff. Finally, it gets into
the promotional elements. How do you make a name for yourself? How do you
get off of your site, find out where people are hanging out and then bring
them back to your own site? It goes through all of that in a comprehensive
way, sort of step by step. There are lessons, including lesson plans and a
workbooks for people to go through. In addition we also have 16 very high
powered, well-known guest instructors within the course. People like
yourself. People like Leo Babauta from Zen Habits. People like Chris
Guillebeau. Danielle Laporte, Clay Collins. A number of well-known, very
successful people are also in the course teaching individual lessons to
people. So this is actually opening up soon. It’s sort of a limited
engagement, because we like to get a group of people in all at once during
an open enrollment period. And then run through that group of people as a
class. We also have a number of very successful alumni. I think the results
speak for themselves. If you look at who’s gone through the course and how
successful they’ve been. People including Danny Iny from Firepole
Marketing, Natalie Sisson from The Suitcase Entrepreneur, Scott Dinsmore
from Live Your Legend, Sybil Chavis from The Possibility of Today and on
and on and on. We have a number of very successful alumni and I like to
talk those people up. Because as I was look through today, at all the
people that had gone through, I was fairly proud to see who had gone
through that. I think that speaks for itself. Thank you.

Pat: That’s awesome. You know, a number of people that I’ve actually
referred through my affiliate link to Traffic School have come back to me
have said thank you, and have seen boosts in their traffic as well. So
anyone who really has a site and you’re maybe not seeing enough traffic and
you have a little room for education in your life. I highly recommend
Corbett’s course, Traffic School, which is the perfect name for a course.
Corbett, again, thank you so much. If you want to go through my affiliate
link, that’s smartpassiveincome.com/trafficschool. No spaces or dashes in
there. Just smartpassiveincome.com/trafficschool. If you have any questions
for me, or for Corbett, feel free to leave a comment down below and I’m
sure we’ll get back to you. Thank you, Corbett, for taking the time, your
wisdom and education here on the SPI video, or Youtube channel, blog,
whatever you want to call it. I guess we’ll see how these HD videos come
out. Again, thank you so much. I can’t wait to talk to you again.

Corbett: Thanks so much, Pat. I love being on. I’m a huge fan of what you
do. I appreciate it.

Pat: Thanks again. Take care.

End Transcript

[/spoiler]

Also, I wanted to be honest and let you know that at the end of the video I give Corbett a minute to talk about Traffic School.

No, he doesn’t have a bad driving record (actually, well – I can’t confirm that) but he does have an amazing course that I’ve been happy to recommend here on the blog in the past. He opens up the doors just a few times a year and he will be doing so again tomorrow (Tuesday) for only 100 new students, and I’ve always gotten an amazing response from those who have purchased through my affiliate link.

He’s also giving new members full access to his How to Start a Blog that Matters course, which I’m very familiar with as well.

Thanks again to Corbett, and if you have any questions about Corbett’s tips and driving more traffic to your blog, please feel free to leave a comment below.

Cheers, and all the best!

Totally! ;)

P.S. And in case you’re curious (a number of people on YouTube have asked me already), I’m shooting on a Canon Rebel T3i with a 50mm f/1.4 lens and recording with a Sony Wireless UWPV6 Lavalier Microphone.

    Corbett Barr is a traffic genious. I am currently following his Million Dollar Blog Project and it has been amazing how much traffic we have been able to generate from his tips. This interview just adds to our growing list of must dos to generate more traffic.

  • Mohamed Hammad

    Hey Patt,

    It is the first time I’ve been a reader and I must say that I am impressed! :)
    Great content. Great honesty. Great style!

    Great work you’ve done there :)

  • Alex B

    Great video! I love the HD quality — I felt like I was in the same room with the two of you! I’m a study of Corbett’s “Start a blog that matters” course, and it is awesome!

    Great work Pat, as always!

    Cheers,
    -Alex

  • http://eselfemploymentideas.net/ Bob

    Great stuff again Pat / Corbett! I greatly appreciate you approaching this topic from a beginners standpoint, but not being afraid to go deep.

    You always impress with your content. I aspire to hit the sweet-spot with my fans like you do with your fans!

    Here’s to hoping I’m working with dry wood! ;)

    Thanks!

  • http://www.WaysToMakeALivingOnline.com Arbel Arif

    Great Tips, Thanks…

  • http://www.dropoutgotrich.com Kevin

    Hey Pat, I bought the Canon camera you recommended. Are you shooting this video with that camera? Did you do anything special to make yourself stand out and the background blurry?

    Cheers

  • http://www.dropoutgotrich.com Kevin

    Just noticed the note at the bottom of the post that this was shot with the Rebel – sorry missed that. So just curious if you did anything special to make yourself stand out and the background blurry.

    • Pat

      Yes – the power is in the lens – the 50mm f/1.4. Because the apature is wide, the depth of field is very small, and so what you do it move the white box on your camera to your point of focus (your face) and then record from there. A 2.8 will work just fine too, but I wanted super blurry, hehe.

      • http://www.dropoutgotrich.com Kevin

        Thanks Pat. I have the standard 18-55mm f/3.5 that came with the Rebel. Can this do that effect at all do you know? Or would I need to purchase a new lens?

        • Pat

          Yes you can, but the effect won’t be quite as blurry in the background. Since it’s a f/3.5, that’s the widest you can set the apature, and every click wider makes a huge difference – 2x I believe per click. I’m not an expert so don’t quote me on that, lol.

          But yes, you can achieve the same effect – you can try it and see!

    • Emma

      Hey Kevin, I shoot with the same camera and the blurry background is to do with the camera lens and aperture size that you use. The 50mm lens with 1.4 aperture is what does it, giving a “shallow depth of field”. Its an incredible lens for portraits in general. All photography terminology but thats the basics right there. Hope it helps. Maybe Pat has more info on lighting etc.

  • Eric Schmidt

    Great video…the HD worked out perfect on your site but a bit heavy in demand for “FeedDemon”. I’m a new blogger and really loved the message in this video. What are the best ways to find the A, B & C list bloggers you mentioned within a topic of interest? Also the phrase “great content” kept coming up. I completely understand and agree that great content is critical. What are the best ways to stay fresh and up to date on ideas that will help in producing great content?

  • http://www.thestudiocenter.com Frank Casanova

    Definitely kicking it up a notch with this Pat… It looks beautiful. What did you use to switch the pictures with, or did you record, edit, then post?

    • Pat

      Thanks Frank! I used Screenflow to edit, using the cross dissolve effect to switch between the two.

  • http://homebusinesssoup.com Eryn

    That was an awesome interview (especially in HD). You two guys come across so genuine, I’m sure that has a lot to do with your success. I picked up some good advice actionable advice, so thanks for putting the information out to our community. Maybe one of these days I’ll hit you for an interview! Peace!

  • http://www.studenomics.com Martin

    Just curious, but does the exclusivity of this course help it sell better? The fact that you only open a certain amount of spots a couple of times a year must make it attractive. Would you recommend applying this for a future product?

    • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett

      Hey Martin, great question. Yes, exclusivity can definitely help sell a product. In this case, the course is a little more “hands on” than others because of how we interact with students. We keep enrollment limited to keep the work manageable for us and make sure students are getting enough attention. The exclusivity is a benefit to us and to members.

    Nice vid! The quality and audio are great. Like Kevin above, I’d like to know what equipment you are using. My flip cam is OK.

    • http://www.howtomotorcyclerepair.com/ Matthew

      I see my Q was answered above…thanks.

  • http://talesofwork.com Kimanzi Constable

    Awesome video with so much great content on building traffic! The video looks great in HD. I appreciate how you ask the questions from “our” perspective Pat!

  • http://www.youcanworkless.com Dean Soto

    Pat,

    Holy crap, that was amazing. Yeah, I know that content is king (and the content was great – I love Corbett.), but holy hell the video quality was unlike any other. It seriously hooks you in and makes you want to keep watching. You keep upping the ante with content, and it’s great. (although now I may want to buy the Rebel, lol and the lens you used.)

  • http://www.globalchangevolunteers.org ken

    Pat this is a great post Pad. I’m currently working on getting traffic to a volunteer placement website that I set up to place volunteers to help out in orphanages in Africa. This information will really help me move along with that!
    Thanks again

  • http://lifeinsurancebyjeff.com/ Jeff Rose

    Pat,

    This is freaking awesome! Love the interview concept with the Canon’s. Have a few techie questions in how you pulled this off..

    1. This seemed to be live. Were you Skyping simultaneously to hear each other’s audio?
    2. Did Corbett then just send you the raw video file so you could edit it?

    I’ve never seen anyone do anything like this – very cool and high end way to bring the normal Skype looking interview into a whole new life. I wouldn’t expect anything less from you to be the first to pull this off. :)

    P.S.

    I know you won’t be there this year, but you inspired me to be a speaker at the Financial Blogger Conference in Sept. I just bought Dale Carnegie’s Book Stand up and Deliver to work on my public speaking skills. :)

    • Pat

      Congrats on speaking this year Jeff, I really wish I could be there to watch. Next time!

      As far as your technical questions, you’re absolutely right…we were on skype together so we could hear each other’s audio, and then he sent me his RAW file so I could splice things together in screenflow. :)

      • http://marketsecrets.biz Caleb

        Ingenious work around in spite of not having a full NBC Studio at your disposal ;)

  • http://everlutional.com David @ Everlution

    Fantastic interview both content and HD quality! Always can use the reinforcement to keep things rolling. Thanks Pat & Corbett.

    Hey Pat, great video! The video and audio quality is really amazing!
    Of course the content is, as always, extremely useful and inspirational.

    Hey Pat,
    Nice work (as usual!). Love the blog/podcast!
    BTW, I’ll still like you if you blink! lol
    Keep ‘em comin’

    Does the “Start a Blog That Matters” include any of the information and lessons that are in “Traffic School”?

    What are the differences between the two courses?

    Thanks!

    Great job guys! May have been mentioned earlier – but my audio and video were not in sync watching this on SPI. Is this IE or something else?

    • Pat

      Hmm, that’s weird Kent. Have you tried viewing directly on YouTube? It could be an IE issue if the problem still persists.

      • http://www.kentrecommends.com Kent F

        Worked fine on You tube. I’m sure it’s my computer – stormy weather in Texas is probably the culprit. Thanks Pat!

  • Rob

    Back away from the camera! TOO CLOSE!!
    otherwise great vid.

  • http://www.charlesbennewith.com Charles

    Well Pat,
    What’s to say that’s not already been said?
    Brilliant as always buddy….Well done!
    I see I’ve been beaten to the ‘Not blinking’ comment.
    I’m convinced your eyes are closed and you’ve painted eyes balls on your eye lids!
    Keep up the fantastic work.
    Health, Wealth and Happiness…Always

    • Pat

      LOL – I love how people pull out stuff like that in my videos, like the other one where the grass needed to be cut on my lawn. LOL – really though, it needed to be cut.

  • http://goldcoastspringwater.com Damon Taylor

    Lets all learn from Pat. Shoot a nice video and then package it up as content. But really its about the affiliate link. Its sales content. If you are trying to sell to me… at least be up front about it.

  • http://www.newbloggerexperiment.com Rich Ryan

    Great info guys! I’m just getting my blog going and trying to decide where to spend my time because there is so much to do but definatly need to come up with a stategy to build traffic that is focused to keep me on track and making the best use of my time. so this information was a big help.Thanks.

  • http://www.techmuzeacademy.com Dezz Asante

    @Damon
    If you took the time to read the copy under the video, you’d see that Pat disclosed everything in the first sentence.
    I love it when people complain about free content!
    Where can I find your ridiculously helpful blog?

    • Pat

      Hey Dezz, I was a little confused at first too, but I think he was paying me a compliment, since that’s exactly what I did.

      • http://www.techmuzeacademy.com Dezz Asante

        If that’s the case, I apologize for my tone!

        • http://www.keepcomputersafe.com Sheldon Livingston

          Oops… I read him wrong too…

  • http://planeters.com Joe Wong

    You two are the reason why I haven’t given up with the idea of creating an online source of income. You always say the right stuff without the fluff that other “gurus” give.

    As a SABTM student I can’t wait to get started with traffic school and complement what I’ve learned so far.

    Great interview btw, image quality was excellent and the questions were responded perfectly.

    PS:Is that your S.F. house Corbett?

    • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett Barr

      Thanks Joe! Yup, that’s my apartment in SF. We just got back from Mexico a couple of weeks ago.

  • http://incomepress.com Joey

    Question for @Corbett. Are you also using a Canon Rebel T3i?

    The picture quality on both sides is sooo sweet and crisp. That Canon is on my wishlist and when I get it, I’ll be sure to get it from your affiliate link Pat ;-)

    • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett Barr

      I use a Panasonic Lumix GH2 with the Lumix f/1.7 20mm lens. It’s a slightly more compact setup with great video, and there is no time limit for longer video clips like you have with mirrored DSLRs (there’s a 29 minute limit with the T3i, I believe).

      • http://incomepress.com Joey

        thanks brotha. I was actually going to get that cam. But since everyones been talking about the Canon Rebel, I changed my mind. But since you mentioned the time limit, I’ll have to evaluate the two again. I shoot a lot of video and would need that extra time. Thanks again brotha.

        • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett

          Either is a great choice. Just make sure you budget for a high quality lens or two. It’s all about having the right lenses.

  • http://www.endlessrangemarketing.com Hilary St Jonn

    Great post! Simply being natural, reaching out to people as a real person, which is basically being authentic and building relationships is the way to go. And of course adding value, and finding out what your readers want.

    Did you guys recorded this separate?

    As in, sending in the questions, getting the answers back and then synchronizing the two feeds?

    • Pat

      We were on skype at the same time. Corbett just sent me the raw file of his video and I edited it so it could go back and forth between us.

      • http://marketingwithsergio.com Sergio Felix

        Awesome Pat, I was going insane trying to descipher what exactly happened here, thank you for answering!

      • Ben

        Thanks Pat! and Corbett! That was awesome as usual

        I was wondering the same exact thing actually so your answer to just that one question helped at least 2 people

        You guys are both a big inspiration with BOATLOADS of awesome helpful content keep up the great work!…. and again , THANKS!!!

  • http://www.earningforever.com Mike@EarningForever

    Hey Pat,
    as a newbie blogger, I love to hear about the ways to get more traffic to my blog! I am pretty much blogging about the same things as you (passive income and life success), and I know that the market is pretty flooded with information…with that being said, I am still a small fish in a large sea!
    I have written over 1000 SEO’d articles that all get organic traffic; however, I am clueless when it comes to generating traffic from referrals/direct sources. This interview really opened my eyes to a few possibilities!
    Thanks!
    Mike

  • http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane | Problogging Success

    Pat and Corbett, Awesome stuff. And everything else is already said in the comments.

    Pat, I love the blurry background with a great color combination. You surely seem a bit tensed compared with your previous vids, and consequently forgot to blink.

    Corbett, I love the color combination on your screen overall.

    Great job with the HD guys!

    Ah so I forgot to mention about the content in the vid. Apparently it was so awesome. Couldn’t be the other way with two awesome guys in the field!

    I’m looking forward to the opening of the course. Just enrolled myself in the early bird list.

    Cheers,

    Pat,

    Nice work, good to hear those tips from Corbett.

    I agree with the part about becoming a slave to checking website stats. I now try to check only once per day in the morning before I start out, that way I can see if anything leaps out at me for that particular days tasks.

    Thanks for sharing,

  • http://www.onlinebusinessmania.com/resources/ Sajan Elanthoor

    Awesome guys. You together are giving incredible ideas and values on both of your blogs and brutal example of how to cop up each other and grow. Anyway, did you notice that on my recent resource page (http://www.onlinebusinessmania.com/resources/) I’ve mentioned both of you. Let me seee whether Corbetts idea works:)

    • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett

      Thanks for the mention Sajan! ;)

  • http://legitseo.com/ Alex

    Great interview Pat, and the quality is insane!

  • http://www.freshphotographer.com Richard Neckar

    Nice job! I have a photography blog for amateurs which focuses on some of the comments and questions laid out by many of the comments posted here. So it is good to hear that there is a rich audience for such discussions. Now just to get them to my site! :)

    Anyway my question is a little different and off topic, but how do you get your affiliate links like to Amazon and such hidden with your own domain name, example: smartpassiveincome.com/canont3i/, which then forwards to your amazon affiliate link? I would like to do this on my links.

    Thanks again in advance!

  • http://www.thefurniture-for-cats.com Sheila Bergquist

    Great video, both in content and quality! I love your site and have already learned so much from you. I’m not exactly a newbie at this, but still feel like one because I still have so much to learn. Thanks for all the great information you pass on!

  • http://www.ipahs.com Courtland Santos

    Hey Pat, Just wanted to say awesome video. HD is really the way to go these days. The questions you asked where right on the spot, especially for people like who are just starting out. I really enjoy reading your blog post and watching you vids on youtube. I was wondering if you plan on doing another site duel challenge with other bloggers in the future? if so, let me know.

    thanks, and keep the great post coming!

  • Jeff

    They say you learn something new everyday. This has certainly been the case for me since starting to read through the content on SPI. Again I got another lightbulb moment when watching this video. Thanks Pat for awsome info.

  • http://www.annieandre.com Annie Andre

    Corbett and Pat,
    I have a question about driving traffic. One of the traffic driving methods i noticed a lot of people use is transparency. I recently decided to do a monthly report sharing my successes and failures in achieving 5 of my top goals that i thought most people would be interested in. It was inspired by Pat Flyn. You can see it here. http://www.annieandre.com/2012/04/monthly-report-1locaton-indpependence/
    Do you both think that this is also a good technique to drive traffic?
    p.s.
    Pat you really did a great job at asking those probing questions that we were all thinking about.
    pps
    I recently got the Rebel T3i which is called the 600D here in Europe and i have the 50 mm 1/8 lens and the results are amazing compared to my old Flip Camera.. But the sound coming from my rode mic is really hissy.. I digress.

    Thanks to both of you for providing amazingly useful content AGAIN!!

    • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett

      Transparency can be a great strategy. Just keep in mind that sometimes this leads to a chicken-and-egg problem. If you’re advocating for something but haven’t accomplished it yet yourself, why should people look to you as a teacher?

      In Pat’s case, he had already built a very successful online business elsewhere before he started this blog.

      I’m not saying your plan can’t work, but you might need to provide additional value through your content.

  • http://www.thecopybox.com Loz James

    Hi Pat

    Hi Pat,

    Hi Pat and Corbett,

    Excellent content; I’ll tweet out the link to this post and will be featuring you both as people to trust in future posts at my own blog, which helps innovators and creatives spread their ideas most effectively online.

    Certainly I do feel a sense of loyalty to both of you, because you deliver the goods every time; the other great thing is you actually bother to respond to my occasional Emails to you both, which shows you’re both working hard to deliver value.

    I’m now off to analyse my traffic for both my key sites and will be concentrating on those sources that bring me the most response.

    Best, Adam

  • http://savannahg.com Savannah G

    Great video!! I feel like I know all of this stuff, but its always great to hear it again from a different perspective! Patt, watching your videos encourages and motivates me to keep battling for more and more traffic! Thanks – as always!

  • http://www.brockstarlife.com Brock @ BrockStarLife

    Awesome production quality! And great tips. I love the point about speaking to “one person” and trying to add value to their life. I actually kept getting emails from a guy who is getting started with Amazon marketing and who bought a course through my affiliate link.

    He keeps asking me questions, and I started to think “Why should I keep helping this guy for free?” After listening to your conversation, I immediately sent him several of my personal tools for free. Thanks for helping me think long-term!

  • http://lifestoogood.net Alan | Life’s Too Good

    Hey Pat,

    One of the things I like most about you is you are always setting new precedents – for yourself and because you share everything, for your audience.

    I’m not sure how many HD vids there are being posted in the blogosphere and it’s not something I would normally pick up on but I had to mention it because it really struck me how great the picture, but particularly the sound quality is on this clip.

    As well as the fact that you and Corbett have established a good relationship which comes across and both really know your stuff,

    awesome job – thanks for sharing,
    Take care & best wishes,
    Alan

  • http://www.davidamoore.com David Moore

    Pat,
    Odd queston about the video with T3i. I have this camera and LOVE it. Haven’t shot much video, but do you use a larger memory card or record in a smaller size. When I have shot a few test vids the camera auto shuts down. I think due to recording size. Just curious.
    Thanks,
    David

  • http://www.yourbossblows.com Bryan Knowlton

    KAPOW! Another home run! Really loved all the information that was shared about getting traffic and really focusing on the current traffic sources and improving on those first.

    Your video quality and sound quality was equally amazing! Another great job Pat!

    Hi Pat, Thanks for the video.

    I was wondering if you have a blog button that I could grab?

    I have a “Thanks” section in my sidebar for sites that I have benefited from, and I wanted to put your blog on it (your e-book on writing e-books was helpful, so I wanted to point other people to it).

  • http://www.printfellas.com Jeff Byer

    Thank you Pat and Corbett, very sound and actionable advice as always.

    I too have a 50mm fixed 1.4 lens – you gotta have the camera pretty far away with the 50mm fixed zoom, but the picture is always nice.

    Looking forward to a follow up from both of you on the results/evaluation of the talking head video blog posts. Is it something we all should add into our normal post rotation?

  • http://www.fibromyalgia-treatment.com Terry Springer

    Great video…. good enough to convince the ultimate sceptic to give Traffic School a try, purchased through your affiliate link.

    A request please? How about a detailed step by step “how to” post and video on actually making the video you did for this posting? I think the comments here make it clear there is a very large demand for this. Its one thing to say “use the camera and skype and make video”. Sounds simple! Reality is different and lots of folks end up not doing it because getting that first video done can be weeks climbing the learning curve if you don’t know the tech. So a how to video to walk folks through step by step and thus chop the curve would be fantastic.

    Terry

    • Pat

      Hi Terry, thanks so much for your support and for purchasing through my affiliate link. I really appreciate that, and I know Corbett will take good care of you and everyone else.

      As far as your request, I agree – I think a lot of people are curious as to exactly how this was done. I’ll put it on the list.

      Again, thank you, and all the best!

  • http://flippamate.com Marc Ashley

    I’ve followed you for years or at least it seems years and I basically shut myself away from any distraction to get started with websites and monetization which I’ve been very successful with after hundreds of attempts and thousands of mistakes! and now I’ve decided I want to try and help others with their journey just like you’ve helped me with mine so I thought I’d pop by and see what’s been happening since I haven’t been anywhere for ages and voila! Amazing video quality and the perfect topic for me right now, because I’m building a blog and think this course might just be the right thing for me!

  • http://getfreeinternationalshipping.com John @ Get Free International Shipping!

    Great interview and the quality of the video and overal production value was excellent. Definitely going to upgrade my DSLR and try some similar interviews for my site.

    Oh and to reiterate a few other people’s comments – blink a little! Also, it’s OK to look away from the camera from time to time – perhaps to your desk, or notes etc. I think it’d seem more natural and less, um, creepy! ;)

    Nice work, Pat.

  • Kenny Spilt

    I couldnt take my eyes off of Pats eyes….I played the game of who would blink first and Pat never lost.

    Just to let you know that I also purchased to join the traffic school through your affiliate link and already having some fun with the group on facebook supporting each other.

    The site in question is http://www.iinclude.com and hopefully you will see some dramatic changes and who knows a site that gets picked on your rader for one to watch out for LOL.

    Thanks for the video; the quality did play a role in the decision towards joining traffic school so keep them coming. Fortunately I got a friend who has got the gear and I also intend to replicate one of these videos for fun and then maybe for my own site.

    Really great interview and a lot of to learn. I wonder HOW you use -in the most effective way- one of the following: 1) Using Opt-In Lists; 2) Organic Search Engine Traffic; 3) Getting Traffic Through Traffic Exchanges; 4) Writing Articles ; 5) You tube Videos. See you later.

  • Lally R

    Hi there. Thank you for your insights how to GET TRAFFIC for your BLOG. Now, I have a question … Is there anybody can tell me in his/her own experience, which one is the most effective way to get GOOD TRAFFIC for bloggers? Also, do you know something about HOW I can get traffic from social media to bloggers?. Do you have your own strategy or an special software? Thank You.

    • http://NewClientsEachMonth.com Kate@New Clients Each Month

      Lally,

      I have found the best strategy to be offer GREAT content for Free, that is the starting point. If you don’t offer value, the traffic disappears and does you no good. After that, build relationships with LinkedIn & Facebook, aka start discussions, leave comments, engage. Spend most of your time having conversations and the results are amazing over time. You know, do all of the things that Pat talks about : )

      • Lally R

        Thank You

  • http://golalaa.com sam

    i think use this type of third party software nowadays Google consider it as Black hat seo techniques and i think we should at least for now avoid this as Google penguin is working and seriously it just hats Black hat SEO Techniques :)

  • Lally R

    I have a question: “How can I get the HIGHLY TRAFFICKED WEBSITES?” And leave a post, reply, answer, comment, or recommendation on targeted, highly trafficked websites. I want to have control of the search engines and dominate Page 1 on Google, Bing and Yahoo. I would like to get Access to those websites every day.

  • Lally R

    Hi. I am really impressed about this “Interview”, the “Hi-Def” VIDEO approach, so you can provide your FANS more information, GREAT CONTENT in your blog, networking with other bloggers, and give them great VALUE to anybody who visits your blog. This is really good. I feel more inspired, and now I am working in that approach plus: 1) How to find websites that have a lot of traffic, so I can post my ads; 2) How to Get more leads from Buyers, Sellers and Social Media (Twitter) to send ads; and 3) How to Get more exposure from other websites and get more leads. I am pretty sure I will find the way so I can accomplish more. Thanks

  • http://www.trickslove.com Anand

    Such a good interview.. i’ve learned lot of from this

  • http://www.yourlife-yourchoices.com Lenia

    Hi Pat,
    I liked the interview. Thanks for sharing the tips. The difficult part to me is to apply all the good advice you give but I work on it hard.

  • Lally R

    Hi. That interview ROCK man. All advices are awesome and I agree with all of them. It is really fantastic what you stated. Also -even though it might sounds too aggressive- I would like to add with new personal approach as I said before: “Get highly trafficked websites, so you can post your ads (products or services) or your own website and get more traffic; Get leads from Buyers, Sellers and Social Media (Twitter) and put your website; and Get Exposure from and to other websites, so you can get emails (more leads) from these websites and promote the products and services you have in your website.
    Anyhow, I think that these three additional ways can allow anybody get more traffic for your website and you to promote massively your products or services you have so you can create “Multiple Streams of Income as possible”
    It sounds so challenging but I think it is doable.

        Thanks Corbett. So, maybe I’m being stupid, ha, but how was the conversation recorded with those while “skyping”?.

  • http://thinktraffic.net Corbett

    That’s the magic! ;)

    We both recorded separately and I sent my HD files over to Pat so he could merge them in post-production. Pretty slick, right?

    We were actually on Skype during the interview so we could hear each other, but we were looking into our respective HD cameras that weren’t piped through Skype.

    Hi. Getting Traffic from the Internet is EVERYTHING. And you can use different tools, techniques and strategies. We have VIDEOS, also, we have Keywords are vital, as well as placing great KEYWORDS in your articles, do guest Blogging, post at social media sites, or in your own websites or blogs, so you can generate traffic for free. Also, if you placed the best ranked Backlinks in your website and your blog, you can increase your traffic too. A extra tips I got a few days ago, tools such ping.fm and animoto.com will help you to improve the content of your website and get more traffic. Yesterday a friend of mine asked me. Why do I have to get Highly Trafficked Websites? What is the purpose to get them? The answer is, if you get them instantly it will be easier for you to contribute first with your ideas and them post your products and services or whatever you want to promote. But with two clicks you get a list of the most RANKED websites in the world or local if you want. Then, when somebody go to this sites (with high traffic in the world) and see your postings, they will click your POST (about your product and service), you will be able to have a HIGH rate of conversion or more sales to be more specific. Also, this great software help you to get more leads such Buyers, Sellers and from Twitter. It is huge. Plus more benefits. Check inside the blogger and get free Training and more information.

    Did this just get hijacked by Lally R. Class-less. And I bet he checked the box that he’s not a spammer too. Obvious English not first language.

    Internet is all about “How to get traffic”. I think like Ping FM and the videos either videos sent to YouTube or created by yourself as in Camtasia can help you to create traffic, but I found a much better tool that help you 1) To find the top trafficked websites of the world and then with your weekly contribution you can add value and post your website in your comments. I prefer the latter because it is much easier and you can find PR 7 or PR 9 where you can get those Backlinks related to your webpage; 2) To get a lot of LEADS from Buyers, Sellers and Twitter; and 3) More leads from Pandora tool. I hope it can help you in some way. Try it: http://gettraffic-leads-exposure.blogspot.com

    No matter what you do either starting a home-based business or having a B2B website or you are a sales rep, you must find new leads to keep your business running. How do you get leads? You can either buy direct mail or email lists from different sources but that will cost you some or a lot of money. However, that does not warranty that you will have new leads or updated or the best ones considered as qualified leads; therefore, it will be very costly and sometimes frustrated. Fortunately, you can have all what you want by using excellent software that allows you to get the best leads from the top websites with a PR 6 and more. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuQwqMDb5es

  • Print Brochures

    Regarding content writing, does Corbett wirte all the content himself or does he outsource? I don’t think it was mentioned in the video.

    Also, we should not forget print marketing, still works. Handing out postcards, brochures still works especially for local businesses with tons of foot traffic such as New York of California.
