A client recently asked me about her content marketing strategy, wondering what she should include in her blog posts and newsletters. She also wanted to understand more clearly what the difference is between the two. Now, she’s a coach who deals with women’s leadership issues who would like to sell more of her workshops. (Wouldn’t we all!)
Regardless of your niche, the most important suggestion I can give you it this – when you create content for your audience, you must offer VALUE. Here’s what I mean…
Blogging for coaches
The best way to think about your blog is that it is a […]
Today I want to invite you into my mindset around the two highest uses of your time for long-term growth: blogging and strategic partnerships.
Without a doubt, blogging has (and continues to be) one of the most effective ways I’ve grown my business. Google has brought me a tremendous amount of traffic just because I consistently put out valuable content to my audience.
But possibly the single greatest way I’ve grown my business is through strategic partnerships (similar businesses referring their clients to me on a regular basis).
In fact, through just one strategic partner, I’ve been able to bring in $50,000-$75,000 each year for the […]
Despite the changes that have taken place over the last few years, the foundation for online business success has a foundation of blogging.
Why do I say this? Because, even with all of the changes that Google has put us through lately, they still index and rank your website based on the quality of the content you offer.
In other words, if you’re not posting quality information on a regular basis, Google will ignore you!
In a previous post, Strategic Blogging: Finding Subjects to Blog About & How to Structure Your Blog Posts, I shared with you one of my favorite exercises […]
Ever get stuck trying to figure out what to write about for your blog?
In 2014, the biggest buzz word phrase in online marketing was “Content Marketing”.
What is that? It’s the concept that creating timely content will help you promote your website and your business.
Why? Because Google searches constantly for fresh content and, if you don’t offer the high quality content they’re looking for, you’ll never improve your ranking (and lose out on a lot of visitors to your website).
Now, you have to remember it takes time to build your blog and rank on Google, but that’s OK. Everyone who’s successful […]
Are you struggling with the “I don’t have any time!!” syndrome?
Do you feel like you are constantly trying to catch up and never seem to have control over what you’re doing?
Trust me when I tell you, this is NOT an effective way to run a business long-term. If you are in a constant state of fight-or-flight in your business you will burn out and not produce the kind of *consistent* results that are absolutely necessary to big success.
Now hopefully I’ve caught your attention.
If you get sidetracked or delayed and you’re publishing a blog post here and there, or on social media as […]
If you have a passion to help others and a smaller starting budget that you think is ideal, fear not!
When I was just starting out I didn’t drop $3-5,000 for a fancypants website with a leading branding and marketing boutique or anything. I went the route of a DIY blog.
Friend and colleague Lisa Larter always says you are either going to spend money in your business, or you’re going to spend time.
When I started, I spent a LOT of time teaching myself how to do everything. I dig it to this day. Google will teach you soooo much if you […]
You have so much to manage when building your business online that you are searching for ways to “automate” some of this work.
You probably did some research or heard about the possibility that you can automate blog post promotions – where upon publishing a blog post, you automatically have a Facebook post and Twitter tweet show up on your feed.
Yes, this can be done. The rumors are true. You can look into WordPress plugins such as Wordbooker and Twitter Updater which automate this notification to your social media sites, letting visitors know you have a new blog post.
I HIGHLY […]
Do you worry more people aren’t getting a notice when you have a new blog post available?
If you’re like most bloggers, you spend time to create a quality how-to post that you know will help lots of people, yet you lack confidence that the material is actually being seen.
Add a post to all of your social media networks. You may experience the temptation to “automate” these posts on Facebook and Twitter but don’t do this! The automated programs will make a post saying “Read my latest post” and offer the link. The problem is this post doesn’t engage your following, […]
