Thankfully this time around I already had a few tricks up my sleeve. I know what is worth investing my startup money in and what is worth focusing my time and attention on.
I’m here to share those tips with you!
My first time around I started with BlueHost. Everyone recommends it because it has such a big affiliate return, but to be honest I didn’t love it. It was hard to use and didn’t leave me a lot of room for expanding.
Create as much quality content as you can with awesome graphics and then share your heart out on Pinterest.
Participate in group boards and work to gain a following and you’ll see your blog traffic grow very quickly!
(If you read to the bottom I’ll tell you how to get added to my Pinterest group board!!)
Speaking of quality graphics, this is probably the most important. Despite how great your content is, if your graphics are less than ideal, your audience won’t click to your site and won’t want to repin your posts.
I’ve heard a lot about Canva but I personally love PicMonkey
I think it is so easy to use and I’m able to quickly make quality graphics.
PicMonkey costs $7.99 a month to have access to all of the fonts and graphics and to be able to save your work so you can re-edit them later.
It’s is 100% worth it!
If you love to write, creating quality content won’t be hard for you.
Keep a running list of blog ideas so you’re never out of fresh ideas.
Keep your paragraphs small. Creating space in between your thoughts makes it easier for your readers to follow along.
Proofread. I am the worst at grammar. I love Grammarly.
It’s a free extension on your browser that does the proofreading for you.
Growing Your Audience
Last but not least, you need to grow your audience.
