The business of blogging is ever-changing. I don’t know about you, but I feel like once I get the hang of something – growing traffic, building my email list, writing great content – things change and evolve and I need to do the same, both personally and professionally. My mindset needs to shift and I need to adapt by doing things in a new way.

However, keeping up with these changes is a challenge because I’m so focused on doing. That’s my number 1 priority. I’m always brainstorming, researching, creating content, networking and engaging with my audience, and promoting my stuff.
And that doesn’t leave much time for keeping a close watch on trends or trying to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to effective blogging strategies.
In this post, I talk about the product adoption cycle and how it relates to income blogging. What I’m talking about today is related to that. We need to stay current and, better yet, ahead of the curve.
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a lot of extra time to devote to innovation, nor do I have the time to travel the country to various masterminds and summits (I’m a mom and small business owner, after all!). So it’s a relief when I can rely on others to let me know what’s working now.
What exactly are these notes and why should you care?
Because these notes are “a complete reference guide to everything (and I do mean everything) revealed about what really works, right now by 40 of the marketers actually doing it.”
And if I had gone to this conference, I can tell you what sessions I would have attended:
- Master The MAGIC Headline Formula That ALWAYS Works and Get a KILLER Hook for Your Product or Service in the Process
- Win Pinterest (with the least effort): Advanced Pinterest Tactics for the Smartest Marketers
- 4 Wicked Smart Ways to Get More Out of the Traffic You Already Have
- Ask Me Anything: Pat Flynn
- How To Generate Follow-up Sales From Your Amazon Buyers (Even If You Don’t Have Their Email Address)
That’s just what I would do. There are many more sessions and you can see some of those here.
Is this something you should consider?
Let me start off by saying that, in my opinion, this is not for the absolute beginner blogger. If you’re still trying to figure out how to get started, how to write content that actually makes you money, or are just still learning the basics, this is not for you. There’s a lot more out there for you to focus on first. That being said, it really wouldn’t hurt for you to have this information.
And here’s the real kicker: at prior summits, almost every single speaker wound up releasing a high ticket course, with almost the exact same material they shared.
The only thing you can count on…
…is that things will always change and evolve in this business and we have to do the same by using best practices to make money by blogging, by figuring out a business strategy that works for us, by consistently building our blogs and email lists, and then being an innovative leader in our niche.
That may mean doing things differently in our biz, creating truly unique (like, never-done-before content), or establishing additional business branches that allow us to explore new areas of our business – and by extension, new ways of implementing methods and strategies.
Pick up your copy of these notes and take these strategies into 2017 and beyond…and let me know how they work for you!
