Email List

50.28% of our traffic came from our email list in July. This is a little more than last month which is fine. Again our email list grew over 25% in June from 708 to 886. This increase is awesome! If you are not on our email list please sign up here so you can get each video delivered daily.

What we did in July

We are continuing to focus on SEO. We are getting more traffic from search each and every month which is great! These are people searching for God’s Word and we are helping them find it! The more people that visit our site the higher the rankings are in the search engine which causes more people to visit our site. We started an Instagram account and will be posting scripture pictures each day. We also started an affiliate shopping page to help cover the costs of this website.  We also added a couple Questions to our FAQ page.

What we have planned for August

We are going to continue doing what we are doing. We will be adding more affiliate site to our affiliate shopping page.  We will continue to post on  all of our social media platforms. We might start a Pinterest page. Let us know what you think about that. Do you have any suggestions for ways we can reach more people? Contact us if you have some ideas.
