Sharing blog statistics on a blog as a way to attract businesses

Is it worth sharing blog statistics on a blog?

Blog statistics, like the amounts for sponsored posts, are often kept secret. Personally, I don't see anything wrong with sharing statistics on the blog in the 'cooperation' tab and we do it (if you are interested in our statistics, please visit the 'cooperation' tab). Sharing statistics on a blog should be the norm, but a lot of bloggers make a secret of it. Question - why? Do they combine in statistics that they send to companies? Or are they just ashamed of low statistics?

Why share your statistics on the blog?

I will now write from the point of view of a person who does not blog, but someone who works with bloggers (because I do this professionally. If someone does not know yet - I work as a specialist in social media and cooperation with bloggers. More in the tab us').
When I am looking for bloggers to cooperate with various companies, I usually browse a lot of blogs, write to bloggers and ask for statistics. Certainly not only me, but most people involved in cooperation with bloggers would be grateful if everyone in the cooperation tab shared their statistics with the public. It would save time for people who deal with it. If you put statistics on a blog, then the client will immediately know if it's worth working with you and under what conditions.

Let's face it - statistics are very important - whether on a blog or on social media. Professional companies ALWAYS ask for statistics from the last month (I also recommend sending statistics from 3 months). In addition, it will be a plus if the screenshots are named 'statistics from last month' and 'statistics from 3 months' or something like that.
If your statistics are low, you have to take into account that you will not be an interesting blogger to cooperate (unless you promise well and stand out with something special against the background of the blogosphere). For low statistics, I recommend letting go of paid advertising campaigns on the blog and focus on getting readers and maybe think at the beginning about barter cooperation.

Do you write about prices for advertising services on the blog?

I think it's a good idea, but I'm writing here again from the point of view of the person who works with bloggers. Usually such people have a certain budget for advertising campaigns and it certainly would make it easier to look for potential Bloggers to cooperate with.


How to price advertising services on a blog? click

From my point of view, as a blogger, it looks a bit different. On our blog you will not find a price list for advertising services on our blog, nevertheless we have a range that we use.

Why aren't we talking about them openly? Firstly, because we do not want to alienate customers. Despite the ranges, we always try to match the price to a specific service after determining the details of cooperation. I hope you understand what I mean - if someone writes a question about cooperation, I first ask about its details. Thanks to this, I can make an accurate quote, because I know what the client expects from me.
Secondly, because we do not want to disclose our blog earnings. Among our readers are family members, friends, etc. Earning issues concern only the two of us and we would not like to hear later comments on how much we do not earn on the blog (which of course is not true, but there would certainly be such suspicions). That is why we give the final price for the advertising service after we receive the details of cooperation.

Where to upload blog statistics?

Of course, such information should be found in the 'cooperation' tab. I have already written in Blogger's Guide about what exactly should be included in this tab click

    I've almost always got statistics, but I have to update them at last 😉

    Very interesting entry, I was always interested in how it looks from the other side. Recently, I have data from statistics but I still can't find and read the necessary data from GA.

    I have been thinking about publishing statistics on the blog for some time. I currently have coverage of 30k uu per month and I do not know if this is the right time for such a move. Anyway, I read with pleasure and I will think about it.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 14 February 2017 / 14: 50

      This is definitely a good moment 🙂 Personally, I think that a good moment is already from 10 thousand. uu.

    Indeed, statistics are important on the blog but even more important are readers. I don't share statistics myself, although I admit that I'm more and more proud of them 🙂
    Pozdrawiam

    I have statistics on my blog. I think disclosure of traffic is a plus for blogger. We don't get suggestions that don't match our statistics. If your business is about bloggers with 50K UU coverage per month, then after seeing statistics below this value, you simply won't try to contact you. For bloggers, saving time is a plus. Preparing an offer, replying to an email, however, takes some time. If we have low statistics then there may be a problem with their publication, although when I was lower than 10K UU I didn't publish them because I just didn't cooperate. I came to the conclusion that it is better to develop a blog, and only then decide on possible cooperation. I happened to make a barter one, but in retrospect, I wouldn't decide to do it again.

    For now, I do not publish statistics on the blog or provide specific rates - it seems to me that it makes sense when the statistics reach a satisfactory level. It would look a bit strange to "boast" of 200 or 300 UU 😉 Although it cannot be disagreed that this type of information makes it easier for companies to work.

  7. Avatar blog.stabrawa 31 January 2017 / 09: 12

    Indeed, statistics are an important element, I do not have them permanently in my tab, but I send them on request. And by the way I work for the better 🙂

  8. Avatar Nadine 30 January 2017 / 09: 50

    Thanks for this post 🙂 I do not share on the blog, but if you ask me, of course I send 🙂

  9. Avatar Joanna B. 29 January 2017 / 10: 07

    I put statistics on the blog, I see no reason to be ashamed 🙂 I think that this is also important information for other bloggers, what other achievements they have and how we compare ourselves.

  10. Avatar A sweet idea 29 January 2017 / 08: 51

    I was looking for such information! Thanks for the article 🙂

  11. Avatar klubautora 27 January 2017 / 06: 35

    Sharing statistics is a bit like walking naked. We feel ashamed if these statistics are low. Somewhere deep down there is some fear of "what if I have low statistics and someone sees and rejects me?" Somewhere in the human mind there are such traps 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 27 January 2017 / 08: 00

      There is nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone starts from something, and besides, if they are low, even after contact with the company there is a chance that cooperation will not be undertaken because of this. It's pure time saving for both sides.

  12. Avatar Anastazja K. 26 January 2017 / 20: 45

    I do not have statistics and I do not intend to do it, because for me GA is not entirely reliable. Not once did I catch him lowering the statistics, so I see no sense in him. If the advertiser wants to receive statistics, he will get them. Maybe it's the wrong approach, but that's my attitude, unfortunately 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 27 January 2017 / 07: 57

      Unfortunately I can not agree. GA currently has the most reliable statistics.

      Sure, the blog is your property and you make the final decision 🙂

    Very cool that you raised such a topic 😉

  15. Avatar Milena M. 26 January 2017 / 19: 31

    It's nice that the topic was raised.

  16. Avatar Mrs. Servicewoman 26 January 2017 / 19: 18

    Given that approximate statistics for each page, anyone can check, for example, in SimilarWeb, it probably doesn't make sense to hide them. It is known that those with SW are not accurate, but more or less you can see the traffic on the site 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 January 2017 / 19: 21

      SimilarWeb is completely unreliable. It often understates or overestimates statistics (and these are not small numbers but thousands). Few companies use this tool for this reason. Same as blogger statistics - if someone sends them to me, unfortunately, but I reject it. At the moment, only GA is authoritative.

    • Avatar Mrs. Servicewoman 26 January 2017 / 19: 40

      I did not write to send the advertiser statistics from SW, only that it is possible to pre-assess the traffic on the website. Sure, it's not the same, the more that it's approximate statistics of views, not UU. And yes, they differ a little from reality, it all depends on how much traffic the site has.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 January 2017 / 19: 49

      Yes, yes I understand. I meant that no company seriously takes these statistics because they are not reliable 🙂 GA statistics are the best.

  17. Avatar Our Bubble 26 January 2017 / 19: 14

    I don't provide statistics or price list on the blog - only possible forms of cooperation. Everything takes place in the e-mails between me and the potential customer - and it is a matter of individual arrangements. Perhaps it is a mistake - but I do not have these orders, it is not known how many and until now such a solution has always been satisfactory for both parties. If anyone is interested in my blog - they just write and ask a question.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 January 2017 / 19: 24

      When you have fairly high statistics, it is worth sharing such information on the blog. Most well-known bloggers do this, so it's not a secret 🙂 Nevertheless, if you send statistics while a company speaks to you, this is not a mistake, but it may cause that some will not reach you at all.

  18. Avatar Kary B. 26 January 2017 / 19: 00

    Very valuable entry and advice 🙂 Thank you 🙂

  19. Avatar Marta Kraszewska 26 January 2017 / 18: 06

    My statistics are not too high, although I have engaged readers. Nevertheless, I have been officially providing some time so that seekers do not waste time.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 26 January 2017 / 19: 24

      Cool! People involved in cooperation with Bloggers will be grateful to you :))

  20. Avatar womaninthemirroruk 26 January 2017 / 18: 04

    I just threw in statistics siebie I thought for a long time whether to do it, because I'm just starting, but this post convinced me.
