What up everyone? Brian here. I did my 2nd Video Business Consultation. This consultation was with Shelby from Fit as A Mama Bear.
What a fun and great conversation we had. We touched on all aspects of her blog, social media and went over strategies on how to improve on everything. Shelby is crushing some aspects of her blog, like her blog content creation, Pinterest and Twitter. Other areas she’s having challenges in.
One of the main things I want everyone to take from this consultation is the importance of being on top of Social Media.
What does it mean to be on top of your Social Media?
Content creation + content distribution + genuine interaction with your followers = a solid formula for social media success.
It’s that plain and that simple.
The more content you create, the more chances for interactions you have.
Don’t worry about pushing out too much content to your followers. There is so much noise on social media, they aren’t going to have a chance to see everything you put out even if you’re dropping 100 pieces of content each day.
Everyone should be pushing out more social media, I’m totally included in this too.
The Video Business Consultation
Some Resources for Bloggers
In this consultation with Shelby, I share a couple of valuable resources. Below I’m going to include those as well as a few others I think will help most bloggers.
Facebook Ad Course
I can’t express how important it is to learn how to use Facebook Ads. This is hands down the best course you can get and take to learn how to use Facebook Ads and not only is it by Facebook, it’s 100% free. Check out Facebook BluePrint here.
Google Search Console Guide
If you’re brand new to trying to make money with your website, understanding how Google works is beyond important. Understanding how Google Search Console can help your site grow is super important. I highly recommend starting with the most basic guides this has to offer and move your way up from there. This is by Google and 100% free, check out Google Search Console Guide here.
Google SEO Starter Guide
Equally as important as learning Facebook Ads for your blog is to learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization). There are a lot of great SEO courses out there. That said, before I’d invest a single penny into any advanced SEO course, I would go through Google’s Free SEO Starter Guide first here.
The Best WordPress Recipe Plugin
Chrystal did a ton of research on what would be the best recipe Plugin to put nutritional information on recipe blog posts. We bought one, returned it; demo’d a couple and we ended up switching to WP Recipe Maker from Bootstrapped Ventures. We’re super stoked on it.
More Consultations to Come
I’m really stoked to have had the chance to sit down with Shelby and help her.
I have more consultations in the works.
My goal with everyone I speak with is that I provide a tremendous amount of value coupled with actionable steps people can immediately take to improve their blogs.
