How To Create The Best Images For Your Website

After using almost every graphic design website out there, I just recently struck GOLD. If you’re not sure what a graphic design website is…in short, it is the answer to all your prayers regarding imagery for your website!Pixteller promo-PixTeller-249108I’m going to be totally honest with you guys, I suck at photography. I don’t even know how some bloggers do it. If you handed me a professional camera I would literally just stare at it, and even if I knew how to operate it I’d still take a crappy looking picture. If you’re anything like me (a busy bee), then you’ve resulted to an easier alternative, like the use of a graphic design website with templates already made for you.

However, in the past few months I started to notice something quite interesting in the blogging community. There are a ton of bloggers using the same images, and if they’re not using the same images then their designs look extremely similar. If you’re deep in the blogging world, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I figured out what’s happening here, EVERYONE is using Canva and PicMonkey. There’s a ton of hype behind those two platforms and everyone new just seems to hop on the bandwagon.

However, I’ve never been the kind of person to follow trends. I love to stand out in a good way, and if you’re anything like me you do too!

I recently started using another platform to design the imagery for my website, PixTeller. And no, that is not an affiliate link. I come across cool new things and I like to share it with like minded individuals. This image was created with PixTellerI also noticed something really cool about PixTeller, that I haven’t found on any other platform which made me fall more in love with it. If you type in key words in the search bar, it will bring up A TON of templates for that key word.

For an example, in the image above I typed “business” in the search bar which then presented me with a bunch of cool/cute business savvy looking photos. By the way, all of their photos look extremely fresh. 

Here’s a few other cool things that I love about PixTeller :

  • the option to use it for FREE forever
  • 400+ fonts to choose from (this has always been a struggle for me but not anymore!)
  • live chat with the creators who respond within 25 mins
  • AMAZING images

Those are just a few things that I personally love about PixTeller. However, you can totally sign up for FREE and check it out for yourself.

How to Create a Sales Page For FREE Using MailChimp

mailchimpHey guys, I’m back with another amazing blog post. Whoop whoop!

I know it’s been a little over 2 weeks since my last blog post if you haven’t checked it out yet click here!

I was definitely gone for good reason. I’m putting together an awesome detailed course for you guys on setting your Pinterest AND website up for success….that will sell for dirt cheap.

While in the process of creating my first e-course, I thought what in the heck am I going to do with my two Pinterest Blog Booster packages?! I didn’t want to stop offering them before launching the course because that would take away the extra assistance some of my viewers may need to create their success on Pinterest.

So, I decided to re-create my sales page and take 80% off both packages because they will indeed be going away soon, just not before the launch of my first e-course.

Alright, I’m going to let you guys in on a secret that normally I wouldn’t tell but today I feel like it’s necessary. Before last week, I didn’t know how to create a legitimate looking sales page. Here’s why, literally almost every platform out there that you could use to create a fancy looking sales page COST MONEY! Now, I don’t know about you but I honestly don’t like spending money unless I have to, which is why I’ve became extremely good at finding cheaper alternatives.

As soon as I found out that I could re-create my sales page on MailChimp for FREE and make it look super fancy, I was like OMG I have to tell my viewers! Like, remember that scene on Bruce Almighty, when Jim Carrey was typing all cray cray on the computer…..? Totally me!

typing

Before I dive straight in, I want you to know that this post is in NO WAY sponsored by MailChimp! I found out something amazing and I want to share it with you guys because we’re in this together.

I don’t want you guys to think I’m leaving any important details out so I’ll give it to you step by step with screen shots. I got you covered!

Creating Your MailChimp Account

The first step would be to head over to www.mailchimp.com and click “sign up for free” in the top right corner of the page.Inked2018-05-19 at 00-41-46_LI

MailChimp has a Forever Free, plan that let’s you use MailChimp for FREE forever under certain guidelines. Here they are, you get access to most MailChimp features, but your total subscribers are limited to 2,000 and your email per month limit is 12,000. If you ask me, that’s a pretty darn good steal!

Making Your List

What I love most about MailChimp, is that everything you create on their platform is  designed to help you get more subscribers onto your list. With that being said, before you design anything on their platform you have to create a list first to connect your list to your design. I hope that made sense. The good thing is that you don’t need subscribers on your list to create your sales page, all you have to do is save the details of your list and you’re good to go. No worries, I’ll walk you through it with screen shots. 

After you’ve created your MailChimp account and successfully signed in, the tab you’d want to click on is “list” towards the upper left corner of the screen. Inked2018-05-19 at 02-04-53_LI

From the “list” tab in the upper right corner of the screen click on “create list”. This will bring you to a page prompting you to enter in the details of your list. When you’re done click “save” and voila, your list is ready for the world.

Creating Your Sales Page

From the “campaigns” tab, in the right upper corner of the page, you should see the options to click on “create campaign” or “create”. If you’re under the “campaign” tab, your page should look similar to my screen shot below.Inked2018-05-19 at 01-16-07_LI

Both options will open up the same box asking you “what do you want to create?” So, it does not matter which one you click on, just whichever button floats your boat. After you click on the button of your choice, you should see a cute little box open up on your screen with a few options, in this case you’d want to click on “create a landing page”.Inked2018-05-19 at 01-29-08_LI

After you select “create a landing page”, at the top of the box switch the tab to “product page” then enter in the title you want your sales page to be and then select your list from the drop down menu. When you click “begin”, it will bring you to a page similar to my image below. 2018-05-19 at 02-26-09

This is where you let your creativity shine bright like a diamond!

You got this, I believe in you. Now go and create an amazing sales page!

MailChimp not only gives you the option to create a banging sales page but it also gives you the option to create amazing lead/landing pages.

In this post we’ve covered:

  • Creating your MailChimp account.
  • Creating your list details and getting it ready for subscribers by saving it.
  • Creating your sales page.

Do You Really Need a Blog, or Do You Just Need a Site?

This is going to be short, sweet, and to the point because it seems to be a major question that everyone has when starting out in their online entrepreneurship journey. “Do I need a blog or a regular site?” I want you guys to read this article thoroughly because being an online entrepreneur is not exactly easy-peezy but totally worth it. The goal for everyone should be to work smarter not harder!Do you need a blog or a site

Throughout my blogging journey, I’ve seen a lot and I’ve answered a lot of question’s but out of everyone I’ve observed and consulted it really just boils down to one major question.

Are you doing more than you need to for your business?

I may get a lot of backlash from this blog post being that there’s a lot of bloggers claiming that if you have a business, you NEED a blog.

That’s not necessarily the case for every business. In some cases, it can hurt you more than help you! You may just need a site that say’s here’s what I’m offering, and here’s how you can get it.

Even though I don’t offer it as a service, a lot of my viewers email me asking if I’d be willing to help them start up their blog. Although I’m willing to help either way, after talking about their business plans and goals, I often times find out that a site would be more beneficial to them, especially if their main focus is to sell.

Having a blogging site vs. just a regular site does not determine the amount of profits or traffic you will bring in to your site, your marketing strategy does.

Here are a few questions to take into consideration when making your choice:

  • Do you like writing?
  • Do you have or can make the extra time to be consistent with posting quality content?
  • Do you already have a solid following, and what are they used to? (They may or may not need the extra content.)
  • Does your business require you to build a relationship/rapport with your viewers? For an example, you may just have a clothing store. Unless you’re teaching others how to sell clothes or something of that sort, there’s no need for a blog.

Hopefully those questions can help you guys out big time, especially if you’re new to this world.

Here’s a few detailed reason’s why I DON’T recommend blogging if you answered “no” to majority of the questions above:

  • If you don’t like writing, in my professional opinion I wouldn’t recommend building a blog on your site. This is coming from a place of love for your business. I believe there’s room for everyone to be a successful online entrepreneur with the right strategy and marketing tools. If you don’t like writing, it will show in your articles which will hurt your reputation. Stick with your strong points and build on them to make them stronger! It’s totally okay if your weakness is writing, you can work on it, I just wouldn’t recommend making it the focus of your business.

 

  • Let’s just face it, no matter how productive you are there are just some things we don’t have time for. Unless you can afford to pay someone to write regularly on your blog, you’re going to be doing most of the work. If you cannot free up the time to write a ton of content, that is totally okay! Without my super tight schedule, I wouldn’t have the time either. There are online entrepreneurs kicking butt with a simple Linktree site, and others with a fabulous Shopify site. Neither platforms are made for blogging but both are used by top entrepreneurs who bring in major profits each month!

 

  • If you already have a solid following that is amazing! Especially if you built it in a world where everyone now believes you need a blog to generate major traffic. If you have loyal customers or a certain type of branding or business style/way of doing things that your viewers are used to, I don’t recommend straying too far away from that. Two things can happen if you do, your viewers will grow to love it or they will dislike it. If they dislike it, that can be reputation suicide which will be hard to come back from.

 

Remember, the goal is to work smarter not harder.

The Ultimate SEO Guide For Bloggers

SEO for bloggers. SEO-ing your blog or website.There are a few different things for SEO that you MUST be doing as an online entrepreneur for the success of your blog/website or online business. We are going to go over each of them below!

If you’re wanting to boost your website ranking in search results across the board, SEO is the way to go. Actually, to increase your ranking in search results, it is vital! If you’re not sure what exactly SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is as of yet, here is the textbook definition:

THIS PAGE CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS. IF YOU’RE NOT SURE ON WHAT THIS MEANS, SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE TO SEE A FULL DISCLOSURE.

SEO

The process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.

To sum that up, it basically makes your website closer to the top of the page which means more views and clicks for you.

BLOG/WEBSITE

Haven’t created a blog or website yet? No worries, I’ve got you covered. I made a step by step guide just for you, How to start a profitable blog from scratch. When I first invested in self-hosting my blog, I had no idea that I could generate a substantial amount income. Now, I have no regrets. If you’re still thinking about starting a blog, or you have one and you’re on the fence about self-hosting, it will change your life I promise. Lucky for you, you don’t have to pay full price like I did. Click here to get 60% your first hosting plan!

ATL TEXT & WHY YOU NEED IT ON EVERY IMAGE

If you are’t adding Atl text to your images on every single blog post, I highly recommend that you go back and do this to all of your blogs….today! It’s that important to your ranking in search engines. I know, when I finally figured out that I needed to do this for the success of my blog, I was bummed out about how tedious it was too.

If you’re wondering what Atl text stands for, it’s short for “Alternative text” and is generally used to explain text associated with an image.

Atl text is used to help search engines categorize your image (place it among others similar to yours). This is what allows search engines to actually pull your image. For my Atl text, I usually just form a short sentence that explains what the article is about. Use my example below as a guide:

2018-04-18 at 16-11-36 (2)_LI

CATEGORIES & TAGS

Using categories and tags for your blog post is another great way to SEO your articles. What are categories & tags pertaining to blog post you might ask?

Categories are little folders that you place your article in right before publishing it. You want the name of your folder to be something relating to all of the articles you’re going to place inside of it. For an example, the category for this blog post is “Marketing”. Catch my drift?

Tags are words or phrases gathered together that relate to your article. For an example, a few tags I used for this post are exposure, marketing, SEO, blog traffic, viewers, starting a blog, and so on. If you’re using WordPress as your provider (which I highly recommend) you can edit your categories & tags in the settings of your blog post.

TITLES

All of your titles such as blog title, page tittle, and image title, will help with search rankings so it’s best to load them down with key word phrases, it will also show up along with the description of your article.

What are key word phrases you might ask? Two or more words typed as a search query.

With that being said, it is extremely important that all of your titles are short, sweet, and to the point!

YOAST SEO PLUGIN

Before I self hosted my blog, I wasn’t using plugins. Big mistake! However, I quickly realized that they were vital to my success as an online entrepreneur. Especially Yoast SEO plugin. If you haven’t self hosted or downloaded Yoast SEO, I recommend that you do asap!

How Much You Should Make Your First Month Blogging

Blogging income reportYou know what I’ve been seeing a lot of lately?

Income Reports!

Their post usually say’s something along the lines of “Find Out How I Made $100,000,000,000,000 This Month Blogging.”

Okay, maybe I over dramatized the numbers a bit but you get my point.

So, you click on their ad and head over to their blog to check out their Income Report in hopes of possibly learning how you can make what they made, and you leave thinking you got some valuable information to implement their same strategies only to get minimum to NO results at all.

The insane part about Income Reports is that it’s total click bait.

(maybe that’s why bloggers post them but hey, what do I know?)

I think what happens is people see large numbers with a dollar sign in front of it and it pushes them to click. Almost like they can’t even control themselves.

What I want you guys to know is that you’re only getting a tiny view of an extremely large picture. Those bloggers who are bringing in massive ROI’s are leaving out major key points as to how they got from A to B.

 

giphy-4

 

For an example, the last Income Report I took the time to read, the blogger explained how she made a little over $600 her first month blogging. Then, towards the ending of the article she left a small comment stating that she had owned that blog for a year and decided to revamp it and start over fresh with a new brand.

So, that “first month blogging” wasn’t really her first month blogging.

Although, it was her first month publishing under her new brand, she had mentioned in the article that she already built up a good following and reputation the previous year.

But, her pin on Pinterest stated “Find Out How I Made Over $600 My First Month Blogging.”

Do you see the deception that’s going on here?! Don’t be fooled.

I will not post the bloggers name for her privacy but, I just want you guys to understand that as a new blogger/online entrepreneur, reading such articles can be unhealthy for the success of your brand.

It can very easily make you feel pressured or like you don’t  have your stuff together when that’s totally not the case. Those online entrepreneur’s who are bringing in massive ROI’s started just where you are.

There’s no set amount of cash you should make your first month blogging, and if you’re focusing too much on the cash, you shouldn’t be blogging anyway.

I’m not saying this to be rude. I just hate to see talented people start something and then give up. Becoming an online entrepreneur is not as easy as it looks. You will most likely put in a lot of hard work before you actually start seeing a decent ROI so cash shouldn’t be your motive.

I do want you guys to know that I’m currently putting together a guide for you guys that can literally take you from A to B! From beginner blogger (tiny little fish in a big sea) to making your first sale (a shark at the top of the food chain)!

(It will launch in the near future)

Because, I totally get it. It’s frustrating reading a ton of articles wondering how exactly do they do it. And, nobody wants to share the details of exactly what they did.

I made a lot of mistakes my first few months as an online entrepreneur. My branding looked crappy for months and NOBODY told me. It took a lot of trial and error to get to where I am now and I’m no where close to where I want to be.

I’ll be honest with you. It’s not easy and it wont happen overnight but it’s totally worth it.

Gain Thousands of Viewers In 7 Days

TOS (1)Hello my community of bad ass entrepreneurs and creative bloggers. For the past 7 day’s I’ve been testing out a strategy with my Pinterest & blog analytics.  But, mostly focusing on my Pinterest strategy being that 90% of my traffic now comes from Pinterest.

I am excited to say that I have found a strategy that brings in 100,000+ monthly viewers to my Pinterest account and with using this strategy, I’ve gained an extra 2,000 viewers to my blog last month than my normal numbers.

Before I get into showing you the proof and how you can do exactly what I did to gain an insane amount of traffic within day’s, I want you know that Pinterest marketing is something that you should not take lightly. It can do for you what other social media platforms can’t.

If you’re not getting the results you need from other platforms, I highly encourage you to stop putting your energy into them and RUN to Pinterest.

Don’t believe me? Check out the numbers below for yourself. The first photo is my analytics before I started using my strategy and the second photo is my analytics after I noticed the huge jump in traffic. 2018-03-27-at-03-40-061-e1522982116514.png2018-04-03 at 15-00-12

That’s almost 50,000 viewers in just 7 days!

I’m usually not the kind of person that shares analytics and numbers to my viewers because sometimes it can come off as “bragging” and I’d hate to be that kind of person.

But, I feel like I just found a secret formula or something and I’m extremely excited to share it with you guys! Obviously this is just something that I’ve noticed that works for me, but I’m sure if done the right way it can work for you too.

If you’re familiar with Pinterest marketing then you’ve probably heard about how automation can change your life with Tailwind. (click here to get your first month free with Tailwind)

No, this is not an article about Tailwind but stick with me because you are going to need it to implement this strategy. 

Tailwind has done wonders for me. With the proper strategies in place, it took me from 283 to 78,724 monthly viewers on Pinterest in only two months. But, that wasn’t enough and I’ll tell you why….

By the way, If you want to figure out the exact strategies I used to achieve those numbers in two months, check out this free eBook I made for you.

Even though Tailwind grew my traffic from scratch, I eventually hit a point where I wanted more.

I felt like Pinterest caught on to the fact that I was using automation so it counted me out as an active user. Also, I just wasn’t seeing the same amount of engagement that I was before.

So, I did something crazy! I implemented a strategy that tricked Pinterest algorithm and put Tailwind on steroids. This strategy does require a little bit of manual pinning (not too much) but it’s totally worth it being that it gets you a TON of traffic in an extremely short period of time.

Will this strategy continue to grow your traffic if you keep using it over and over again?

YES!

That’s why I’m so excited to share it with you because you can literally start today!

Okay, so you’re tired of being yanked around and you’re ready to implement this strategy? Great! Cause I put it in a tiny eBook just for you. Click here to receive your eBook via email within 24 hours! start a blog today with only a few simple steps (4)


By the way, I know you’re going to get massive results fast so when you do, I’d love for you to email me here unlockingyoursuccess@aol.com or simply comment below on how much traffic you’ve gained.

 

4 Reasons Why I Don’t Use Ads Anymore

4 reasons why I don't use ads anymoreWhen you see a really interesting headline, click on it, then head over to their blog to check out the post and their article is loaded with advertisements, do you actually click on them? Or, do you just kind of over look the fact that they’re actually there?

Well, I do both and sometimes it can become so annoying that I just click off the article without even finishing the read.

It turns out that most people are like me in that sense.

As a beginner blogger I totally understand how tempting it could be to load your site down with a ton of advertisements for extra cash but truth be told, unless you have close to 100k+ monthly viewers coming to your site, you’re not going to make a decent profit from it.

If you want to make a decent profit from blogging without the use of ads and info products, affiliate links are the way to go! There is a strategic way to maximize your profit using affiliate links.

Now, where was I…………….?

Right, ads!

As a beginner blogger I highly suggest that you go another rout to monetizing your blog and here’s a few reasons why:

1.) Ads scare your readers off

Have you ever walked into a retail store and the second you enter, the employees are bombarding you with sales pitches, and then as you walk around the store they come back every five seconds to check if you need anything?

Loading your blog down with ads makes you the annoying salesy employee.

I noticed that my blogs with ads where getting around the same views as my other blogs but the engagement rate was much lower. I don’t want you to make the same mistake.

2.) They’re flat out ugly

You know it, I know it, and your readers know it!

And I know some of you are probably thinking, “well, I’ll just stick mines in the side bar”. Which don’t get me wrong, that’s smart as long as you are the one controlling the exact ad that goes there.

Using Google Adsense gives you hardly any control. For an example, your readers might come to your blog for gardening tips, then they look over to your side bar to see a huge ugly ad about Viagra.

Like, NO Google!

That is not okay my friend!

I only suggest ads in the side bar if they strictly relate to your blog.

3.) You don’t make much from them

So, you authorize Google Adsense to post ads to your blog.

Days go by…….weeks……months.

Then, one day you finally decide to check your account to possibly cash out, and there’s only $0.5 sitting there.

So, you refresh the page a couple of times only to find out that is actually how much you made in months.

Yes, $0.5 is still something but lets be honest, I’m sure you have a bunch of spare nickles laying around in your old purses or between the couch or something.

I had to find out the hard way that ads were hurting me more than helping me.

4.) Makes you look spammy 

When your readers come to your blog, it’s because they want to hear from a real person who understands them and can actually help them.

When they see computerized/automated ads everywhere it makes you look like a corporation, not a real person behind the screen that’s actually willing to engage with them.

If you know without a doubt that you have what your readers need, wouldn’t it suck that they missed out on valuable information because you scared them away with spammy looking advertisements?

Trust me, I used to be “that” blogger. Now, I’m giving you my trial and error tips so you don’t make the same mistakes.

 

So, there you have it.

4 Reasons why I don’t use ads anymore.

20 Legitimate Work From Home Jobs

work from home jobsAfter working remotely for the past three years, I must say it has been amazing and I don’t ever plan on going back to commuting.

Here’s the amazing benefits of being able to work remotely:

  • Pick your own schedule
  • Work from anywhere in the world
  • Save a ton of money
  • Work independently (no micromanagement)

There are way more benefits however, those are the perks that I enjoy most.

I know, it sounds too good to be true. Well, it’s not.

Before you continue reading, I want you to know that this is not going to be one of those annoying survey promoting blog post. I’m going to give you a list of real companies that I myself have worked for as well as companies that I’ve done an intensive amount of research on to prove that they’re legit and credible.

Online Tutoring 

If you’re a grammar freak and good at teaching, there are a plethora of online ESL programs that provide you with a great platform to teach foreign children how to speak English. These programs do not require a degree and they train you.

df2bdad1f965263ec2f9d2fa0d759f5b

 

YiYi English

I personally have worked with YiYi English. They are very thorough on their hiring and training process to be sure that you’re providing the students with nothing but the best. You will have lesson plans laid out for you to follow. They literally set it up for you to be successful. The base pay is $10/hr but, you can easily jump up to $20/hr by keeping your rating above four stars. The commitment is 6 months to a year.

VIPKID

VIPKID’s platform is very similar to YiYi English however, the pay is slightly higher being that you’re pretty much marketing yourself to the parent. Base pay is $14/hr but you can earn up to $22/hr by keeping your rating above four stars.

QKids

I personally would label Qkids as one of the best ESL companies that you could possibly work for. Please keep in mind that your computer would need to pass a plethora of test in order to work for this company. Pay is $16-$20/hr.

Transcriber

How To Turn Viewers Into Buyers

OPT INBefore I decided to create unlockingyoursuccess.online/ I owned two other websites. They both turned out to be a major fail. The vision was there, I knew exactly where I wanted my business to go and what I wanted it to do. However, I was missing one very important aspect, a marketing strategy.

When most people see the word marketing, they think of pushy advertisements, and numbers. Trust me when I say that I am not exempt, I was like most people.

I thought marketing would be hard, and expensive so I just didn’t do much of it. I shared my websites on social media a few times and that was it. (big mistake)

Now, I love finding new ways to market my business. No seriously, it’s my definition of fun.

In fact, I love it so much, I’m going to show you exactly how to market your business like a pro.

So, grab your pen and paper. (& possibly coffee) cause it’s going to be a long one.

Build your own marketing strategy

I can’t even count on two hands how many times I’ve clicked on a great looking pin just to head over to their blog, and everything sounds robotic. Almost like, they’ve copied and pasted a script right off google.

You do not want that to be you, people will run from your website.

Because your viewers can’t physically see you, there needs to be an indication that there’s actually a real person behind the screen that understands their problems and can actually help them. That indication is your personality. You can never have too much personality in your brand. It’s what makes your business stand out from all the copy-cats.

Spoon feed your viewers | Don’t be a salesman 

One major mistake with my first two websites was that it was information overload. It was like I just kind of threw info products and prices at them as soon as they clicked on a link. I had a salesman mindset which came off as pushy. It wasn’t genuine, and my viewers could totally tell.

Treat your viewers as if they’re your babies (new born babies). They’re coming to your site for the first time, or reading your blog post for the first time so, this is all new to them. They’re hoping to learn something that they’ve never been taught before and they’re expecting you to teach it to them.

Here’s a check list that you should swear by:

1.) Build a relationship with your reader within the first few sentences. If you aren’t doing this, 9/10 of your readers are most likely clicking on to the next page without fully reading your content. They need to trust you. An example would be, “I want to help you because…..”

2.) After you’ve built rapport, jump right into the meat of your content. No fluff! I repeat, no fluff. It’s so annoying to read an entire blog post only to realize I didn’t actually take anything valuable away from it, and that it was all just a evil mind trick to get me to click on some pricey info product.

If you do this to your readers, they will most likely never read anything you post again. Which brings me to my next point…..

Give away a ton of free stuff

I know, it sounds crazy but trust me when I say this is a game changer.

There’s a ton of salesy people out there who will tell you “Put a price on everything.” Wrong!

Giving away valuable free content is the key to your success.

Not only will it drive an insane amount of traffic to your site, it will also build trust between you and your viewers. They may not buy the first time around but, after coming to your site for a while they’ll begin to trust that you’re not feeding them a bunch BS. So, when you do decide to present them with a sale, they’ll trust that their investment would help them out in the long run.

Give them proof

When it comes to buying a product or trying out something, nobody like to be first. I know, it’s tragic. Everyone want’s to know that someone else tried it out before them so they know it’s something they can trust.

How to give proof?

  • testimonials
  • analytics
  • reviews

This is not your show

It took me a while to realize that my website is not TheShannonShow.com. Yes, I’m running it but, it’s not about me even in the slightest. Unless you’re running a lifestyle blog (even then it’s tricky) nobody cares about your life. I know it’s sounds mean but it’s true.

Make your website all about them. What did they come to your site for? How can you help them?

Write everything as if you’re speaking directly to them face to face. As if it’s just you and your reader sitting down together for the first time.

Follow your visitors 

I know, it sounds creepy right? But seriously, follow them!

When your visitors click off your site, that’s it they’re gone. There’s no way for you to keep in contact with them, like ever again.

Unless………….

You create opt ins for them. This way you will always be connected to them.

There are two major ways to create opt ins for your visitors.

The mainstream way is to create an email list. This is effective as long as your visitors are checking their email.

The more advanced way is text messaging. Your visitors may not check their email all the time but, they’re definitely checking their phone for text messages within seconds. Click here for more info on text message opt ins.

Time to wrap things up
