How A Blog Post Helped Us Get 50 Students For Our Sunday Courses
A close friend of mine requested me to write a post about an article that helped us earn over Rs.175,000 since it went online in the year 2010.
She wanted to know more about how content marketing can help her make money from the comforts of her own home.
Since I had a lot of free time today, I decided to write this post this evening.
I know the tremendous potential of a single post on Gobog since I've created content and written quite a few posts in the last 17 years that have made us thousands of dollars.
People wonder what secrets I've used to get thousands of students registered for my courses without any investment on advertising.
But, if these 3 posts I've shared doesn't help you learn some of my marketing secrets then I will reveal another one inside this post itself.
It's a well known fact that you will find phenomenal posts on Gobog. It's pretty simple for our readers to know why our posts receive Millions of reads in just a few years.
It's because there are so many high quality posts on Gobog. There aren't many places online where you will find hundreds of top notch posts on so many different topics.
Of course, my long posts and musings are what have the potential to reach not only Millions of people but perhaps over a Billion readers in the years to come.
Technological advancements and internet reach will help blogs like Gobog reach 100 times more readers than what we could have reached 10 years ago.
In this post, I am sharing a post I've written many years ago, I wrote it for the first time in the year 2010, just 18 months before I would voluntarily close my classroom business.
The article is on Bank Holidays in Mumbai. It took me less than 30 minutes to do my research and write the article.
Little did I know that those 30 minutes would help my coaching classes register more than 50 students for my highly popular Sunday program in Public Speaking and Personality Development during those years.
The people who registered for my courses did not even search for my classes online. They simply searched for 'Bank Holidays in Mumbai' on Google and Yahoo.
In those years, we were listed as Number 1 on all search engines for those keywords in Mumbai.
So, practically every month, that 30-minute article was receiving more than 2000 unique views.
Out of the 38,000 unique visitors we received from January 2010 to July 2011, more than 50 visitors clicked on the banner ad on the top of the article I wrote and signed up for my Sunday courses.
I might have got more than 50 admissions for my classes.
But I am counting merely the ones who specifically mentioned in their admission forms or during the admission process that they got to know about my weekend classes through that banner ad on top of the Bank Holidays in Mumbai article.
So I got 50 students for my Sunday classes, each paying Rs.3500 for the 8-sunday program that we had back in 2010 and 2011. That's Rs.175,000 thanks to that article and the banner ad on top of the page.
After I voluntarily retired from my classroom courses, I still kept updating that Bank Holidays article every single year in October.
As a result, till today, I receive not just admissions for my online courses but clients who come to me for paid online counseling sessions as well.
After reading it you will realize that even You could write a post like that in the same amount of time it took me to write it. Blogging is that simple!!
I have a firm belief in the incredible powers of content marketing on the internet since I have put food on the table and paid the bills thanks mainly to the same business.
I love blogging. There are very few careers in the world that can help you earn such a handsome living purely working part-time from home and putting in only 15 to 20 hours a week on writing posts like this one.
Yes, I've written thousands of articles, clicked thousands of photographs, and developed over 2000 websites and blogs. Only 5% of them helped us make 95% of our income.
Which is why I work so hard on writing a long post like this one. Because I know that one such long post can help me put good food on my table for an entire month.
On Gobog, we have a small team of bloggers and content writers who share bits of their lives, slices of their knowledge and pieces of their writing skills with the whole world.
We started publishing posts here only from 20th August, we already have over 750 posts on our secure servers, that's a lot of top notch content for our readers.
It should come as no surprise to you and me that at least 100 of our posts on Gobog will each reach over a Million people in the next 10 years.
This is the power of great content writing and incredible content marketing without spending a single rupee on doing so.
People think they need to spend thousands and Millions of Rupees to advertise, promote and market their business. It isn't always the case.
Gobog is living proof, just like I am, that you can touch the lives of Millions of people living in over 200 countries from a tiny 10x10 bedroom in the suburbs of Mumbai.
What's more, you can also earn a handsome living while doing so....
