A lot of my clients ask me are blogging courses worth it. They tell me that there is a wealth of information for free on YouTube and Google, so why pay for courses.
This is what I tell them…
You get what you pay for. If something is free then it’s very unlikely to provide as much value as something you have to pay for, that’s just common sense really isn’t it?
There will be parts of it, or steps missing, or it won’t tell you the whole method but ask you to upgrade to get the rest of the “necessary” information. Of course, this isn’t true of every free thing you come across on the internet, but I just wanted you to bear it in mind.
Are you wondering how you can include Halloween in your non-Halloween blog and still remain credible?
It’s important for bloggers to keep up with what’s trending on social media and right now people are gearing up for Halloween.
I know it’s not even the end of August yet, but honestly, you have to start promoting your content at least a month before the actual event to give it time to gain traction.
So in a couple of weeks you are going to need something in your blog, Pinterest boards, Facebook page or Instagram posts that talks about Halloween.
Are you drawing a blank as to what to blog about once the Grand-kids go back to school?
I’m not yet a Gran, although many of my blogging friends are, and they have had their blogging activities somewhat curtailed this last 6 weeks or so; because of the school holidays and having to look after the Grand-kids.
Quite a few of them have been saying that they have got out of the swing of it, or that they can’t think what to blog about now that they are about to get their days back.
Have you ever heard someone say they are a blogger and wondered what on earth they are talking about?
It’s funny to think now, but just a few years ago that is exactly what happened to me.
I was on holiday in the Caribbean and I saw 2 girls who did nothing for 2 weeks other than pose around the pool and hotel gardens. I was fascinated by them.
The whole fortnight they were constantly changing clothes and donning hats and other accessories while posing in the most un-natural ways for the camera.
Are you fed up of working hard and getting nowhere with you blog? Do you get disillusioned when you check your analytics and no one is reading your amazing content? Are you frustrated when others seem to be building a list of subscribers and earning money from their blog and you’re not?
Don’t despair, help is at hand…
Would you love to start a brand new blogging business and have it working for you in just a week? That would be amazing right? Well you can achieve exactly that if you come and work with me…
In just one week we will cover these essential basics:
These are the basic elements that you need to get right in your blog before you can expect your blog to gain subscribers or start making any money for you.
Unfortunately most people spend years trying to get this all figured out and then they give up on their blog altogether because they think it’s not working.
Whether you want to use your blog to sell your crafts online, or you want to be able to coach and support others; I can help you to get it to the point where your blog is reaching hundreds of people, collecting email addresses and subscribers and responding to these new leads all in just one week and all pretty much on auto-pilot!
Interested? You’d be mad not to be!
This is one to one mentoring, I will work with you; and for you to achieve these results. I offer a one stop solution that will save you thousands of pounds, and months of work trying to figure it all out for yourself.
I also offer all this for an unbelievable price. I have included some conservative costings in brackets which you can go and check for yourself. These prices are based on local services in the UK (West Midlands area).
Who is this not for?
Who is this most definitely for?
Okay, are you ready to work with me?
This is how your week will pan out:
We will work on your branding. To get noticed online you have to appear consistently and branding helps enormously with this. If you already have your branding done then I will show you how to use it in your social media. (Typical cost for branding from £400)
We will work on creating a hook and a lead magnet for your website and social media so that when these go live you can attract leads and customers from day one. (Typical cost from £200)
We will create your website using the branding and the hook and lead magnet that we worked on the last couple of days. If you already have a website I will make sure it is using your branding effectively, that it is GDPR compliant and has all the legal stuff on it that you need to operate websites today. I will also show you how to monetise your website by using your blog. (If you would like to start your website beforehand then I have created a step by step tutorial that you can download here) (Typical cost for someone to build your website from £800 + ongoing maintenance and hosting charge)
We will work on your social media presence. To get traffic to your website you are going to need a referral system (unless you wish to pay for traffic which is something we can discuss on the day). We will work on creating you a Facebook Page, a Linkedin Profile (or update your current one), create a Pinterest account and discuss other options for where your ideal customer might be hanging out online. (Typical cost from £2,000 for agency fees usually with a minimum ad spend)
We will set up your auto-responder so that you can respond to leads promptly and on auto-pilot. I will also help you to create your email series.
We will create a sales funnel for your business. This will lead your customers through a buying process which will start with your freebie (which we will decide on and create) and lead them to the next most expensive item and then the next until they are buying your most expensive item. I will also show you how to package and bundle items to make more expensive sales options. (typical cost from £250 per hour – so £1,500 for 6 hours)
You will also receive bonus tutorials such as how to monetise your blog by using different strategies and how to create amazing content for your social media and blog posts.
As you can see, the cost of hiring each professional separately is around £4,900, and then of course you have to go back to them every time you need to make a change. This will be at an additional cost to you.
I will teach you how to do all this for yourself so that it is a ONE TIME cost rather than a recurring one.
I will also introduce you to some amazing free (or very reasonably priced) tools and apps that will help you in your business so that you can automate it as much as possible.
How much does it cost?
I have shown you (and I hope you have researched it and confirmed) that you can probably expect to pay over £5,000 to get these services individually – and it will still take you months to figure out how to put them all together to make your blogging business actually work for you.
You can work with me and have a blog that is working in just one week if you are wiling to invest just £2,000 in your blog and it’s success. That’s just £400 per day! You can pay over £200 per hour just for coaching – and then you have to go and figure out how to do it all yourself!
Why just £2,000?
My whole business has been built around helping new and small businesses to grow and develop and I know that budgets are tight. I also know that time is an extremely valuable commodity when you are a new blog owner as you are expected to be doing several things at once, and learn several things at once.
I want to be able to help you to get your blog up and running and working for you in as short a time as possible and for as little an outlay as possible hence my pricing.
I believe in a fair days pay for a fair days work and I hope that I have demonstrated this in my pricing of this offer.
Obviously I have limited places available for this offer (Just 2 per month) so please don’t delay in contacting me if you are interested in working with me as I would hate for you to be disappointed and have to wait a month or two longer to get started.
The offer is also limited to those who have at least a basic understanding of IT as you will be working with me over Skype (or Zoom) and will need to know how to do a few things yourself.
If this option is not possible for you but you would still be interested in working me, I have some amazing online mentoring programmes that you can take a look at:
