Quick Start Challenge – Week 2 Traffic

In spite of computer glitches with Go-to-Webinar, Dean Holland covered a world of information in week 2 of the Quick Start Challenge.

Some of the key points discussed were as follows…

Success Metric - Key to Making Money Online

Success Metric – Key to Making Money Online

The success metric is the key to making money online.  So what is the success metric?


There are two types of traffic…free or paid.  Actually, free may not cost money but it does take time…and time is money!  We will track our traffic with Google Analytics.  (Action item: Add the Google Analytics plugin to my blog!)

We are going to focus on two free traffic methods by swiping visitors from existing traffic sources… Forums and Blogs.  We will comment with our blog in the signature line.  The comment must provide value! First impressions DO count!  If there are no comments people might feel it’s not worth reading your blog.  On the other hand, if there are comments, visitors will want to see what all the “buzz” is about!  We want people to become loyal customers with KLT…they know, like and trust us!

There are thousands of forums out there…but why not start with the Warrior Forum, designed with online marketers in mind.

As far as blogs are concerned…we have a gold mind…the Quick Start Challenge Blog Roll! Make a post on everyone’s blog and as you post on their blog, they will return the favor and post on your blog!

Now I also learned something from our Quick Start Challenge facebook group…install the plugin CommentLuv.  This will reward you if you decide to add a comment to my post by placing a link after you comment with a link to your last blog post with the statement: Your Name wants you to read www.your blog! How cool is that?!



Ok…now here’s the Week 2 Challenge… Create a video (at least 30 seconds, preferably with your smiling face), upload it to facebook and post it on your website!  Oh my gosh, did Dean actually say make a video? This is going to be a MAJOR challenge for me!  Be on the lookout, because I will meet the challenge!

Did I mention, Dean Holland, Craig Crawford and Robert Phillips of  The Quick Start Challenge  are giving away prizes as an incentive for us to get the job done!

    I feel the same way about making videos. VERY VERY out of my comfort zone. But if the greats can do it so can you!! Great post!

    Hi Barb

    Thanks so much for creating this summary of the week 2 training. I missed the live one and have been waiting to access the replay.

    It’s great you made this post it is very helpful, I am sure it will help many others in the group too.

    Well done!

      Hi Tom
      Thanks for your kind comment. I hope to help a lot of people make money online once I have figured it out…which is why I joined the challenge! I would like to be able to travel as you have. I have been to Europe two times but I can’t wait to go again! That is the big advantage of doing an online business…you can do it anywhere! Good luck on the challenge

    Hey Barb, what a very thorough write up of the last webinar! This is great for those that had to miss it for one reason or another. I’m also loving the use of images in your post, it brightens it up and makes it more interesting.
    Keep at it, and good luck with this weeks challenge.

      Hey Keith
      I appreciate your comments. I am forcing myself to get out of my comfort zone…I am not technical like you! Little by little I am learning and finding once I know how to do it, I enjoy it. Hope that is true about video. It’s on my calendar to get working on it on Thursday! Looking forward to seeing your next update!

  4. Hi Barb,

    Thanks for this post. I was unable to attend the webinar live and have not yet seen the replay. Thanks to your post I can get started on all the Challenge actions.

    Much appreciated.

      Hi Fernando…Glad you enjoyed the post summary. The Week 2 video is now posted on the top of the first page of the Quick Start Challenge website under the tab that says MODULES. I can’t view your website. Let me know when it is ready and I will be happy to review it and post a comment! Good Luck to you in the challenge!

  5. Hi Barb, as the others have pointed out, it is really good that you sort of summarised the week 2 webinar. I missed it. Waiting for your video 😉 Good luck to us all.

    P.S: I haven’t made mine either, but seeing how other people are determined to overcome their limitations and just do it really help me do the same.

    • barbschallenge says:

      Hi Christine! Thanks for your comment. Glad you enjoyed the summary of week 2. The replay is now up on the first page of the Quick Start Challenge website up at the top in the MODULES tab. You can watch it and hear your name being called as the WINNER of the first award! Congratulations to you and wishing you GREAT success!

    Hi Barb,
    I really like your “journaling” style of posts – it’s like summary of what’s been done on QSC 2015 so far.
    I also support your sincere communication – you are obviously implementing what Dean is teaching…
    Keep up the good work and there is no doubt that you’ll make it!

      Hi Rino

      Appreciate your comments! I decided to do the journal style so I could use it as a reference when I start making money…when people ask me how I did I will say, go read my blog!

  7. Luis Serna says:

    Wow. I did not know about the plugin “CommentLuv”. Thanks for making this post. Also thanks for summarizing week 2. Big help. I’m a boxer, and I am usually sore and tired from training whenever I watch the webinars live, so I can’t grasp all the info in the first viewing. Thanks. You’ve helped me allot.

      There are so many people in the group and so many websites on the blogroll it is very difficult to keep up with everyone! I hope this group will continue to stay active as it will be a good source to help each other. The replay of the call is now available on the first page of the Quick Start Challenge website, located in the MODULES tab at the top of the page. Talk about challenges…Being a boxer must be super challenging! You could probably do a blog on boxing 🙂
