The overcrowded online landscape can make it difficult for small business owners and creatives to get their messages seen and heard. But, the thing is, we can muscle our way into the online landscape, we just need the tools to be able to do it.
You can use blogging to:
- Connect with an online community
- Raise awareness about your brand, mission, cause, creative pursuit or business
- Build an authentic following of engaged people and future clients
- Be seen as a trustworthy industry leader
- Earn money from your passion and purpose
The blogging world can be an intimidating place, especially when we’re just starting out. Without a foundation of knowledge to help us begin, the whole process can become time consuming and might even lead to burn out or loss of interest. Whether you’re just starting out or have been blogging for a while but need a refresher (or a kick up the bum!) this course has been carefully crafted to ensure participants finish with a bank of knowledge and a thriving blogging community behind them to propel them into the right direction.
Who is the BYBB course for?
The Build Your Best Blog course is for anyone who has a project, idea, business venture or creative mission who wants to be seen, heard and engaged with online. If you’re unsure why having a blog is so important, what platform to use or how to ensure your personality and your message shine through in the ever-crowded online landscape, then this guide about how to Build Your Best Blog is a great first step. This is a great course for people who haven’t got a blog and don’t know where to begin, for those of us who have been blogging for a while now but feel like they aren’t getting anywhere with it, or those who need some extra support and guidance with the growth of their blogs.
How does the course work?
The BYBB online course is completely self-paced. So if you only have an hour a day, or five minutes every now and then, to work on your blog that’s perfect. Once you sign up you will have access to 20 modules full of videos, worksheets and written information that will guide you through all different areas of blogging I’ve learnt about over the last eight years. Throughout the course, I invite you to create your own community, develop your own voice, explore what SEO is all about and learn how to make the most of your social media accounts.
Each module is full of discussion points, advice and helpful assignments which will assist you to put into practice what you’re learning from week-to-week. You’ll also have access to the Build Your Best Blog Facebook page, which is a private space in which you can ask questions and connect with a network of bloggers just like you.
At the end of the course, I’ll also take a look at your blog myself and give you any tips or advice that arise to help you put into practice what you’ve learnt throughout the course. We’re going to cover a lot of ground and have a lot of fun learning all about how to create, update and maintain your very own piece of online real estate. And I’m not just referring to your blog as a piece of online real estate because it sounds snazzy, I’m calling it that because that’s exactly what it is! Your blog is your very own, and very valuable, piece of cyber space which has the ability to engage and move people as well as earn you a living from all your hard work, if you so desire.
Don’t be intimidated by blogging
The world of blogging can be an intimidating place, especially when we’re just starting out. First off, we’ve got to wear all different hats. As a blogger we become photographers, designers, social media managers, marketers, entrepreneurs and writers, all in one. And if we’re creating a blog for our businesses, it can feel like we’re running two businesses at the same time.
Here are just some of the topics we’ll be covering
- The power of connection and community
- Choosing a blogging platform and starting your blog from scratch
- Building a loyal following
- Turning your blog into your business
- Visual branding
- Developing your own unique voice
- Imagery tips and tricks
- Key elements all blog should have
- How to write blog posts
- Setting your blog and your business for long-term success
- Social media
- Search Engine Optimisation
- How to earn money from your blog
- + more….
But wait, isn’t information about blogging available online for free?
Information about pretty much anything can be found online, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s up to date or correct. By signing up to this course, you’ll know that the information is regularly updated to keep inline with the constantly changing trends in the industry. Also, especially when we’re just starting out, often we just don’t know what we don’t know. We’re not sure what questions to ask and what information to actually look for. That’s where this course can help.
Without a foundation of knowledge to help you begin, the whole process can become time-consuming and might even lead to burn out or loss of interest. Bye bye, blog! So, why get bogged down with all the technical stuff when all you really want to do is blog?
