We’ve all had articles, blog posts, or videos that don’t perform as well as expected. Then there will be that one post that goes viral out of nowhere. Unfortunately, for every viral video or post, there are a dozen or more “duds.”
I’m not talking about less than normal views. I’m talking about writing a post that took you hours to get just right, found the perfect SEO-friendly title, shared to all your social networks and a few other channels. Then, it gets next to no attention, at all.
What did you do wrong?
I hate to say it, but the painful truth is, probably nothing..
That’s an unfortunate truth of life. You can do everything right. And it will still fail. That happens a lot.
Maybe you almost never have a dud. But it happens to the best of us.
All you can do is: keep going. See what really doesn’t work, and eliminate it. Focus on what works. Simplifying your process helps take the sting out of duds and you learn better what works. But even the best laid plans turn to duds. That’s just a fact of life.
Just keep writing. Keep sharing. Keep going.
Heck, even duds can become gems in time.
But that’s another story.
