Sunday Coffee ☕️ #0003

August 9, 2020

Good morning!

This week, I graduated from writing short form posts on my blog to longer posts. These require more patience from the reader, but I believe I can deliver much higher value to you by writing this way.

Last night's post got really good traction. Like, beyond-my-wildest-dreams-good traction.

  • 14,000+ pageviews and 12,000+ uniques on my blog in ~16 hours
  • 10,000+ impressions and 100s of new followers on Twitter
  • Front-page on Reddit/r/Entrepreneur
  • Front-page of Hackernews, at #25 position

It's only been 16 hours since publishing the post. And I know all this is in the moment and won't continue being this way tomorrow, so I'm just enjoying the moment :)

I'll share a more detailed writeup in a few days on what went into writing the post, how I went about sharing it on various social media, pageviews and impressions and any other relevant numbers.

One thought

How you spend the first hour of your day can be really powerful. Do you have a morning routine that you follow religiously?

Until next week!

By the way, I teach a course called Learn Programmatic SEO to help grow Google search traffic.

Programmatic SEO is a methodical and data-driven approach to finding keywords, understanding user intent and creating dozens or hundreds of pages of content.

Learn how to apply this framework to your business, whether it's ecommerce, SaaS, or even a side project. No prior SEO knowledge required.
