3 Quick and Easy Website Tweaks that Leverage Your Time

When it comes to leveraging your time, developing an automatic system is the sharpest tool in your toolbox. It allows you to get more done in less time. One area that many small business owners overlook is their website. You can make the following quick and easy website tweaks that leverage your time.

1. Use Your Blog to Build Your Mailing List

Like any smart business owner, you likely have opt-in forms on your website. But do you have a solid call to action at the end of your blog posts? When a new reader is finished reading your posts, she is primed to learn more. Give her the opportunity by offering an opt-in at the end of each post.

Even better, make it a logical next step by creating a related offer for each post. These content upgrades typically consist of a simple checklist or worksheet. They capture attention by providing even more information about a topic the reader is already interested in.

If you are having trouble thinking of ideas for your blog posts, check out this blog post, “12 Great Sources for Great Blog Content Ideas.”

2. Keep Them Reading with Related Links

How often do you revisit old blog posts to link to newer content? This is an important maintenance job that will help provide visitors with the information they are looking for by linking related posts together.

Not only is this strategy good for keeping visitors on your site, but Google approves as well. Posts that link to each other encourage search engine bots to crawl your site more thoroughly, and help boost the rankings of your most relevant posts.

3. Make the Best of Your Download Pages

Whether you are giving away a free report or paid product, your download pages can pull double-duty by offering visitors a “what’s next” option. For free download pages, a related, low-cost product is best. It gives readers the chance to learn more about you with a small investment.

If you are using a double-opt-in mailing list, make use of that confirmation page, too! That is the perfect place for a quick upsell or an invitation to join you in your Facebook group or weekly Facebook Live presentation.

 

Conclusion

Remember to make the following quick and easy website tweaks that leverage your time. Your reader should be offered the next logical step whenever she lands on your page.

(1) Use your blog to build your email list.

(2) Keep them reading with related links.

(3) Make the best of your download pages.

How to Quickly Start an Awesome Blog

How to Quickly Start an Awesome Blog

It felt overwhelming when my mentor first told me that I needed a blog to establish myself as an online entrepreneur. Do you feel that way? Do you feel overwhelmed by the idea of setting up a blog? Does the thought of writing 2-3 blog articles each week seem daunting? I understand. It felt that way to me at first. However, I have managed to consistently blog for more than a year. Imagine if you had a simple 3-step process that you could implement today to quickly start an awesome blog. Do not let the feeling of overwhelm keep you from pursuing your dream!

In this episode of My Biz Dream Team: Opportunity Wednesday Training Series we discuss how you can quickly start a blog. We walk you through how to get your blog up and running in matter of hours.

1. Buy a Domain Name

First you will need a name for your blog. Begin, by thinking strategically about your blog and the specific topics that you will address. Find a name that resonates with your intended audience and then purchase that domain name. Make sure that your domain name is a “.com.” Your domain name should not be a “.net” or any of the other variations. Buying a great domain name is the first step to quickly starting an awesome blog.

2. Select a Hosting Service

Next, you want to decide on a hosting service for your blog. Some bloggers start out with a free service. I did at first. But I quickly found that to be unacceptable for my long-term growth. So instead I began using Bluehost to host my blog. It is quick and reliable. Try it to see if it works for you.

3. Create Your Blog

Most bloggers use WordPress. It has become the industry standard because of its ease of use. There are also several free plugins that you can use to make your WordPress blog even more functional. Listen to this great interview with Adrienne Dupree about some free plugins that you can add to help you quickly start an awesome blog.

Conclusion/Call to Action

You can quickly start an awesome blog by following these 3 steps.
1) Buy a domain name
2) Select a hosting service
3) Create your blog

Once you have completed this 3-step process the work begins when you consistently produce high-quality content that your ideal clients will want to read. Tell all your friends and neighbors about your new blog. Ask them to subscribe.

Do you know how the most prolific bloggers are able to produce so much content? Today I will give you a behind the scenes look at blogging made easy. You may be wondering why I spend so much time talking about blogging. You may be tired of hearing about it. But at the risk of offending you, I am willing to write one more time about blogging.

 1.    Why You Should Blog

Blogging is the cornerstone of your marketing.  If you do not plan to spend money on ads, you must blog about topics of interest to your target market. Or the blog could supplement your ads.

 As I mentioned in my most recent “Focus Guide: Get Known and Be Seen-How to Build Your Authority Status,” blogging is one of the best ways to get your message out to the broader world.  Here is the link to the Focus Guide, in case you have misplaced it.

 Remember to blog consistently.  In my experience 2-3 three times a week is best.  When you first start to blog, you may think you will run out of ideas. I have a solution for that.

 2.    A Blogging Resource

 My good friends at Coach Glue, Melissa and Nicole, are extending their offer of 65 done-for you blog posts. The offer was scheduled to end yesterday.

 But now you have another opportunity to purchase the set for only $17. 

 You only need to lightly edit the articles to make them your own. It is a fantastic offer. Just think how much easier it will be to write 2-3 blog posts a week, if you already had a well-written blog post that only needed light editing.

 I have already downloaded them. They are well-written, interesting, and fun!

 Grab your set today:  http://mybizdreamteam.com/65blogposts

 Now that you have a behind the scenes look at blogging made easy are you ready to join the insiders? 

 In addition to blogs, this set of materials can become short reports or opt-in gifts for your landing pages. The uses are numerous and invaluable.

3. A Special Limited-time Bonus

 When you purchase this set of 65 done-for-you blog posts today, I am offering you as a bonus, a 20 minute “Build Your Authority Status” consultation. We can review your business and strategize how you can use this fabulous product to build your authority and visibility.
