I Need It
I started writing heavily on my blog in the beginning of this year and my goal is to consistently produce good content around the topics that I have a good depth and knowledge of and/or first hand experience. I share that information and experience with you freely all the time, but sometimes there is also a strong call to action in which case I will be compensated directly from the advertiser or product creator for a referral I send to them that signs up and uses their product or service. I hope that you don’t feel I deserve nothing for creating this content because you didn’t ask me to provide this, I did it by my own choice, right? You would be right, I do and did this freely of my own choice, but I wasn’t selfish in my reasons as I truly want you to do better in personal finance, experience award travel to places all over this world, increase your financial aptitude as far as investing, live a greener more resourceful life, do better in life in general. If you win, in a sense I win also and what better satisfaction can I have then knowing that your winning is potentially because of some information or experience I shared with you here on my blog.

Looks Pretty Dim
Today, quite honestly, I can’t actually tell if you are winning or not as a result of my advice, because my call to action conversions are essentially zero, user engagement such as comments and content sharing is either zero or a few, and traffic through my blog remains extremely low and these are some of the metrics I use to measure if I’m even reaching you my audience. I can definitely tell that something is amiss although my blog is relatively new. To the above left, is an example of what I was told when trying to get affiliated with Options House, a product which I currently use, and how I responded. Despite being denied, I am still going promote Options House to you if you are interested in trading options because that is who I use.
I have published over 51 posts from the beginning of January of this year, and I plan to continue, but when he speaks of engagement I can feel exactly what he is talking about because here are the page views and comments I have received during that time.
My call to action conversions were such that Commission Junction sent me an email that they were going to deactivate my account if I didn’t get some commissions on the products to which I was an affiliate like Credit Sesame. I’m not doing it just for the commissions, but I don’t want to be deactivated either, so thanks to those who have clicked on this banner ad above my blog and those that will in the future to prevent this from happening, it‘s much appreciated. As I also said before, this helps me to know that people are taking action on the content I’m providing, which is in this case signing up with Credit Sesame to get your free credit score and monitor your credit. If you already know your credit score, then great, can you leave a comment on my post saying, “Great info, I got it mines already! Or I used Credit Karma to get mines.“ By taking a few moments to write that comment, for me it helps that other metric which is engagement.
