One Bite at a Time – Bite #1 – Set Up a Blog

Set up a blog on your website.

If you have one already go for extra credit & write a post!

Why do I need a blog?

    1. Writing establishes you as an expert in your field.
    2. Your expertise can help your clients.
    3. It humanizes you & your business – tell your story, let your clients know you. It’s a little less personal than showing them photos of the grandkids, but you get the idea!
    4. Search engines LOVE fresh, new content. It tells Google that your site is alive & current & (possibly) interesting!

How do I set up a blog?

The nuts & bolts of setting up a blog can be a little much for the average user. If you feel confident, dive in & do it! If you want help feel free to touch base with me. If you have a newer site, I can probably turn one on for you somewhat quickly. If you are on an older site we should probably be talking re-design anyway to get you current.

Start cultivating the mind-set to of sharing. As you move through life (online & off), start to be aware of things you might like to write about. Did you read an interesting article? Would others find it interesting as well? Make a note.  We’ll come back to it later.

But it sounds like so much work!

Don’t panic! Right now we are laying the foundation to make all these pieces fit seamlessly together & make your online life run as smoothly as possible. This step is just getting the blog set up. We’ll grow into the actual blogging after a while.

To Sum Up:

  • Get a blog set up on your website.
