How to Easily Generate Massive Amounts of Content for Your Blog

How to easily generate massive amounts of content for your blog wordpress posts page

Back in May, I decided to take on an exercise challenge – with summer right around the corner and thoughts of showing more skin in an attempt to stave off the sweltering southern heat I knew I better bump up my exercise levels quickly. I also wanted to get my coaching business off the ground and with one of my services being health and fitness coaching I thought it would be the perfect time to show the type of coach I am – one who practices what they preach. What better way to demonstrate that than by documenting my fitness progress on a challenge I set up for myself on my blog?

So, I decided on a fitness challenge that worked best for my fitness goals, Brazil Butt Lift Work out 60 Day Challenge and documented my progress for 60 days on my blog. I included everything from the schedule I choose, my thoughts and feelings of the work out, the type of weights, resistance bands, and a picture every day from the work out as well as a picture of my progress. You can see the Fitness Challenge here.

Think about how much content you can generate for your blog this way! It is a great way to easily generate massive amounts of quality content for your blog AND achieve something you always wanted to accomplish.

Weekly Web Recap of Marketing Ideas – July 25, 2014

This week’s web recap of marketing ideas includes everything from Google backlinks, podcasting, conversation, and conference calls.

1. When Google starts banning backlinks from reliable sources with the claim that said reliable source is not of quality, it’s time to step back and re-evaluate your online marketing efforts. Backlinks have always been a reliable way to add credibility to your Company and website. The thought is if Moz, New York Times, Harvard Business Review, etc. – basically any website that is deemed as quality by Google, is linking to your website, you must be credible. Now Google has decided that many credible websites, like Moz, do not provide quality links and are asking you to remove said links or your website rankings will suffer. Imagine writing a great article for a “quality” website online, have that website link to your website (known as a backlink) then be told by Google the link is not quality, and then having to contact the website you wrote the article for to request they remove the link to your website that was included as a link on the article you wrote!

Business Owner Mistakes

Business owners, when wanting to make more sales and more money, always decide that they need to call the Yellow Pages sales rep, or the Radio sales rep, or a web designer. They assume that they just need to advertise and the world will beat a path to their door. The problem is, the sales reps and the web designers know nothing of marketing. They have their ideas of what you need and it is the same thing they are giving everybody else. The trouble is, it’s a waste of money.  [Read more...]

You Can’t Wait 6 Months To Sell Something – Sales Process

Mindwhirl Example Sales Process

Some of the business owners we talk to don’t have a sales process. In fact, 70% of all small businesses do not have a defined sales process.

I don’t know if these business owners know this or not, but you start a business to make money, not to have something to do.

You have to have a defined sales process because with it, you know where your customers are at in the process of buying.  [Read more...]
