Workshop Description: Did you know there are over 181 million blogs? Bigger blogs may have up to 500,000 page views per month, but the vast majority of blogs have less than 1000 monthly views. Yet, a study from HubSpot finds that 56% of businesses that blogged at least monthly acquired customers thorough their blogs. Blogging three times a week increased the percentage to 70%. It’s a fact that consumers expect to see content on you site, but with all the competition and “noise” out there, how does one compete for attention in this information saturated world we live in?
In this introductory blogging workshop you will…
1. Get clear about why you are blogging.
2. Determine who your ideal audience is.
3. Learn how to stay “on brand” and offer consistent value.
4. Discover the top five ways to grow your blog.
This class will not teach you the technical skills of starting or designing your blog. However, it is geared towards anyone who is thinking about starting a blog or who wants to grow their small business through online media.
