Hey, @Kimsea! This is amazing to have this new forum. I’m not sure, I posted in the right category, but it involves in marketing activities.
As a freelance marketer, you do lots of traffic boosting projects. It’s not difficult to bring more traffic if the client has well branding, but in contrast, it’ll be a hard working for new brand business. So, I would love to brainstorm how you generate traffic for new blog.
Since it’s a new blog, you have to follow what Kimsea has recommended. But I would recommend running the paid marketing campaign to capture more emails to your list, it depends on your client’s budget. Offer free training course, whitepaper, free eBook download, and more. You should spend $100 or $200 to advertise the capture page. Once collected many emails to your list, you’ll get change to get more traffic.
